About the property

Beautiful 1 BR 1 BA loft in Early-1900's Carriage House

This light-filled, cheerful getaway is located in the heart of the West University Historic District, 4 blocks to the U of A campus, and 1 block from the 4th Avenue retail district. Walk to downtown, restaurants, shopping, and arts events. Within 10 minutes of Reid Park, home of the Tucson Zoo, the Randolph and Dell Urich golf courses, and a lovely outdoor pool and Rec Center.

All outdoor activities abound, or just enjoy sunny Tucson from the private, walled yard. Porch/patio is perfect for outdoor dining or just basking in the sun.

Please see my other listing, 322155.

The two-story loft apartment has 1 bedroom and 1 full bath. It comes completely furnished, with WiFi, TV, DVD, CD stereo, iron/ironing board, ceiling fan, air conditioning and heat. The kitchen is fully equipped, including stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, cooking accessories, dishes and silverware. The apartment sleeps 1-4, with a Queen-size bed in the bedroom upstairs and a full-size fold-out couch in the living room. All bed and bath linens provided. Laundry facilities available at several local Laundromats.

If you like, we can do a pre-arrival shopping of food and beverages on a cost/hourly basis.

If you will be here for any of the holidays, we can also supply decorations and have the place festively adorned for your arrival on a cost/hourly basis as well.

Wonderful Location and Perfect for Two

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week! The carriage house was just right for the two of us, it had everything we needed. The courtyard was a great spot for morning coffee or relaxing in the early evening after exploring Tucson or the surrounding area. The wonderful eclectic 4th Avenue shopping district is within walking distance, a block away. There is a very nice Co-op, Food Conspiracy Co-op, for groceries, various stores for all sort of other shopping plus a number of nice places to eat. I would also suggest Time Market, 3rd and University for beer, wine or a slice of pizza. However we mostly picked up groceries and ate in. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking.

The carriage house is also close to downtown or if you are looking to head out into the surrounding area, close to highway access. Once the light rail system is up and running in the fall of 2013, access all over the city will be even better.

We are looking forward to a return trip and would definitely stay here again.

So easy to stay here and convenient to great places!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this and its neighbor apartment for a few years when we visit family in Tucson. It's so easy to get to/from the airport that it's hard to want to stay anywhere else for that reason, but then the property is so charming, and so cozy. And if you want to do anything in the "old" 4th Ave neighborhood, you'll have free parking when you stay here (walk to 4th Ave), which is a big value! We're already booking our trip for next year!

Great Stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Location is off the charts! We walked to 4th Ave, Downtown and the University. The property was in nice condition. It is rather small and the steps to the bedroom/loft could be a challenge for some. I consider this a great value and would absolutely stay here again.

What a great place to stay in Tucson!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a nice, well-outfitted, convenient base from which to explore Tucson. I had a great time staying here and hope to return in the future. The place is well described, and the photos do a good job of showing what it's like. I didn't realize until I got there, however, that the bedroom space is a loft overlooking the living area. It's very airy and the high ceiling makes it feel bigger. The kitchen is extremely well-outfitted and I cooked every night with ease. Everything was clean, in great condition, and just what is needed.

Susan is an exceptionally organized and efficient host. Her communications were so detailed and clear, and every detail was taken care of effectively. She is clearly a real pro at this, and puts a lot of effort into making her guests' experience a happy one.

I was amazed at how easy it was to operate without a car from this location--and I don't think that would be true from many other spots in Tucson. Having a group of cacti right out the front door in the little patio brought the desert closer. Having the streetcar a couple blocks away was super-useful. I was surprised at how quiet it was given how close this location is to the bustle of 4th Avenue.

I'm not from the SW, so I was concerned about the fierce summer weather. It was 108 degrees several days while I was there! But the AC and fan in the carriage house work perfectly, as if those temperatures are nothing.

Stay here if you can--it will be a lovely experience!
