Great oasis in central Tucson

  • 5 of 5

This cute little early-50's duplex has a beautiful, fully fenced back courtyard with a pergola-shaded wrought-iron table & chairs, BBQ, desert plants and landscaped area, and solitude. The cottage itself is fairly basic, but well decorated, with pretty much everything you need except for, maybe, a dishwasher. It was perfect for the two of us, our beloved dog, and for a weekend, a sister-in-law, who slept comfortably on the hide-a-bed pull-out couch.

It's within walking distance of the Sun-Trans trolley line, and the university, and an easy drive to grocery and all other shopping. The neighborhood is good for walking in the evening, and feels safe.

We liked it so much that we've already re-booked for next year!

The property is located within 5 minutes drive of most daily conveniences, leisure shopping, and service needs. Some of Tucson's favorite restaurants are within walking distance.

Tucson is in the Sonoran Desert's northern reaches. Its higher altitude provides slightly more rainfall & is therefore greener than the Phoenix deserts. Tucson is surrounded by mountains always visible wherever you are.

Attractions: Desert museum, Sabino Canyon, East and west Sahuaro National Monument, art galleries in Tucson's downtown, Foothilss, Tubac & Bisbee, visit Nogales, Mexico Items vary from Indian jewelry to paintings to pottery & glassware, all made by local artists. Visit Nogales, Mexico 1 hour south of Tucson, San Xavier del Bac Mission and Tumacoccori mission ruins.

Tucson offers the best authentic sonoran style Mexican food. Enjoy mariachi ballads while eating a chimichanga (invented in Tucson)!

Other Activities: See the Sonoran desert, Sabino Canyon, golf, hiking, shopping, relaxing days spent outdoors
