It was completed in 10 weeks.

Modern, contemporary house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Copper House was great. We liked the sleek, modern styling and the natural light which filtered in through all the windows. The house was very clean and comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We felt safe and secure in the neighborhood and the location was perfect from which to explore the area. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Well put. Thank you. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide so many visitors to Tucson this one of a kind experience. When guests publicly recognize my effort it makes my day. The Copper House IS unique. And the proximity to campus, shopping and recreation couldn’t be much better. I can’t wait to stay there again myself!!

Beautiful studio!

  • 5 of 5

This place was really relaxing and nicely designed. The kitchen is great, AC was nice and quiet and the shower head is awesome! The area was quiet and with a 15-30 min drive there is plenty accessible. The neighborhood is a bit unpolished, but if that is flexible for you, I would recommend this accommodation, as it is very polished/private and relaxing inside.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Copper House. The clean, modern space was thoughtfully appointed with a mid-century modern design. The natural light & outdoor space welcoming. The owner & his wife were very gracious & property manger was kind & accomodating. I look forward to my next stay at the Copper House.

Perfect! Completely carefree and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We totally love the Copper House and wish we could take it with us! Michael and his housekeeper are exceptional hosts providing complete privacy while promptly accommodating any questions or concerns including flexibility on our floating arrival and departure dates. The clean, modern design of the house, the character of the outdoor patio and garden along with the quiet neighborhood make it the perfect place to escape and forget about anything and everything else. It was truly an awesome stay!

Definitely Overrated

  • 1 of 5

We were hugely disappointed with our stay at the Copper House. The description portrays better accommodations than we experienced. We didn't realize that we were going to have to access the property from an alleyway in a marginal area of Tucson until we received the welcome email and instructions from the owner AFTER we booked our stay. Once we arrived and came through the locked gate we realized that this property sits in the backyard of the home that actually has a street address on Copper. But we thought, well we can just stay here for 2 nights. The first night we arrived back at the property at 8:30pm. The solar lights that are supposed to light the parking area did not work. We thought, we will just put our heads down and go to sleep. We were awakened at 1:00am to our car alarm going off. We both shot straight out of bed and immediately felt a threat. We could definitely turn the car alarm off with the key fob, but did not feel safe going out to investigate. We though someone might have set the car alarm off so that we would come out of the gate. You can then imagine what was going through our minds. We even thought if we had to call 911, how would they find us in this alleyway. I immediately contacted the owner through HomeAway and explained our concern. I told Michael we would not be staying a second night and would find a different place the stay for our second night in Tucson. His message back to me said, "Very sorry to hear of your sleepless night and car alarm nightmare. I will happily refund your two nights payment. I can have Dixie stop by if you like if you are still there. Please give me a ring." I called him back and he again stated we would receive a full refund. We left that morning. We then received this message the next day, "I have authorized VRBO to credit your account $137.00. This is the maximum that the system would allow. I regret that you had a sleepless night but car alarms do go off without explanation at times." He completely dismissed the threat/concern we felt. Safety should be an owner's top priority, but not in this case. Michael said one thing and did another. I'm sure there is a way to contact Homeaway to make arrangements for a full refund. He chose not to. I sent a follow up message stating our disappointment, but we haven't heard from the owner again. It has now been a week. I would definitely ask the owner for an address before booking so you can do research to ensure you feel safe in this area. We didn't.

Owner's Response: Reviews have a purpose and guests are free to write what they choose. Nine out of ten of my guests rave about their experience and review accordingly. It is my goal to be accommodating and fair thus a refund was given for over half of the reservation amount. Car alarms have been know to go off. This is the first report of such. There were no signs of forced entry to the car and in 9 years of operation there has been no reports of car damage or other mischievous behavior. There is ample exterior lighting at the entrance in addition to the solar powered fixtures. Please read all reviews and property descriptions and you'll be assured of a relaxing stay.
