This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was excellent. The unit was exactly as described and Elizabeth was a superb hostess. The unit is ideal for two people. It was small but complete. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen is small but complete. Elizabeth had stocked it with a very nice selection of coffee, tea, snacks, breakfast cereals and condiments. The linen and towels were very nice and comparable to what we have at home. Elizabeth was very helpful in getting us settled and staying in touch with us during our stay. Overall we were very satisfied with our experience and look forward to returning in the future.

Simple, comfortable casita, excellent value for money, and close to the university and downtown, with supermarkets within walking (or cycling!) distance. I had several happy breakfasts on the patio attended by hummingbirds and butterflies. Quiet, safe area. Elizabeth couldn't have been a kinder host; there was coffee and fruit waiting for me, and she was always on hand to answer any queries. I hope to be back. Recommended.

Elizabeth's place on Waverly is very well appointed and has everything you would need for a short or longer-term stay. The private garden is very nice for sitting out on beautiful Tucson evenings and the location is extremely convenient if you have business at the University or Downtown. Elizabeth is a great host and she has really paid attention to the details in this apartment. Highly recommended!

Elizabeth was an amazing host. Very friendly and welcoming. The Place on Waverly is a cool granny flat setup, very clean and comfortable. Also there's a great outdoor garden area where we really enjoyed having morning coffee and reading. The host and space combined really made our stop in Tucson a memorable one. Near to public transport and also about a 25 minute walk to all the great bars and restaurants of 4th Ave. Would love to stay here again.

I spent three weeks at the place on Waverly and I had a very good time. The house with its beautiful garden is adorable, perfectly clean and well-equipped. Elizabeth was really nice and even offered me rides from and to the airport! I can recommend this accomodation to everybody who wants to enjoy Tucson.

Elizabeth was a very gracious host. She was quick to respond to our request for a very early morning check in. The facility was neat, clean and well stocked with breakfast items. We appreciated being able to use the washer and drier. Elizabeth responded quickly when the TV malfunctioned and replaced it with a new TV set. We especially appreciated the privacy of Waverly Place and the Host's responses to our questions and needs. All in all our stay was a very pleasant one. Herman & Helen Heuss

Elizabeth User ProfileElizabeth is a superhost.

I have lived in Arizona most of my life. I love the desert, the mountains and plants. I am a horticulturalist. As your host, I would hope to make you feel welcomed to Tucson. I can offer information if you want it and let you enjoy the space on your own. When I travel I would hope for the same from my hosts. I am also a realtor if you are interested in learning more about Tucson real estate I am happy to help.
