Good Space in Walkable Location /Stayed 2 weeks in April 2018

  • 4 of 5

I stayed 2 weeks at the Historic Cottage.

The Pros: The space was clean and spacious for 2 people and could easily fit a couple more guests. Everything you would need for a stay was available. The off street parking was a plus since in the daytime the street is lined with high school student cars. Other than a distant train horn the unit is quiet. The complete kitchen was updated and contained everything you might need to prepare a meal. Tyson was easily accessible by phone.

The Cons: I like to enjoy an outdoor area on a warm Arizona evening or morning, but the backyard area was unattractive and needed an overhaul. It contained broken yard furniture, a broken fence, and an eyesore shed. This really was a downer for me. The location is great or just ok depending on what you want. 4th ave., Congress, and University are all within easy walking. If you are 20 something years old and like to drink beer and party it is only minutes away. Those streets are lined with numerous bars catering to the young crowd and mostly restaurants serving bar food. If you are looking for a good selection of better restaurants to enjoy a quality meal and a glass of wine this area has slim pickings.

Overall: Clean, spacious unit. Quiet neighborhood. Backyard in major need of repair. Location is within walking to Congress, 4th Ave., and University and provides an opportunity to drink plenty of beer or dine on bar food if that's your thing.

A wonderful place to stay in Tuscon especially due to its proximity to the university neighbourhood, 4th Ave. and the Iron Horse historic district. Absolutely will be returning someday.

Clean, comfortable, and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay here. The house was well appointed with many useful items. It was great to have a washer, drier, and full kitchen. Tyson was very helpful when we needed him. We were thankful for the tourist information and the restaurant suggestions. Highly recommended.

Out of the cold & into the warm weather

  • 4 of 5

Everything was ok, quiet, except for a train whistle at night. Nice kitchen, snack bar, living room & bedroom. Only thing I saw that should be fixed was a better locking latch on the back door and the middle window on north side of back room should be latched down, it would be too easy to get in the house. Other then that we liked staying there.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house itself was very clean and well stocked. You can easily walk downtown and very close to many restaurants and bars. The backyard was private and nice to relax after a day out. Tyson was always helpful.
