House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
I relocated from a 1906 bungalow in San Francisco to this 1920 Tucson gem in 1996 and lived in this house for almost ten years. I enjoy fine-tuning this wonderful home and aim to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I also love exploring Southern AZ and provide lots of brochures, maps and info about Tucson and day trips to surrounding sites. Please check out the 'Points of Interest' map and all the websites provided... and enjoy your visit to the beautiful Southwest.
Owner purchased this House in 1997
Why Owner chose Downtown
The original house was tiny and in 1945 the large living room and bedroom were added bringing the total square footage to the current 1050 sq. ft. I resonated with the neighborhood and the warm character of the other historic homes in the area. The neighborhood is walkable and enjoyable (sidewalks! front porches!). I live only 10 minutes away from the property (in another historic neighborhood) so I am available for the 'meet and greet' and close enough to answer any questions you may have during your stay. In 2011 the wood floors were refurbished, the kitchen was remodeled and the house was completely painted inside and out. This can be your home away from home.
What makes this House unique
The home features vintage Tucson art along with local artwork that celebrates the uniqueness of the beautiful Southwest and the Sonoran desert. Looking for kitsch, knick-knacks and kokopellis? You might want to look elsewhere. Looking for classy, uncluttered and serene? You won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed our stay at Mary's place. The location was hard to beat. Was attending a graduation at U of A and was within walking distance to the campus. The driveway is long enough to fit four cars, which was a bonus for family that did not want to park on campus. Within walking distance to 4th Avenue shops and restaurants. Loved the historic charm of the house. Mary, the owner, was kind and attentive. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We rented the Casa to attend the graduation of our daughter from the U. Not only was it close to campus and an easy walk downtown and to 4th Street, but it was also a great base to use for travel further afield. We loved the back yard and even in the May heat we used it for breakfast and dinner. We hope to return to Tucson and this will be the first place we search out for accomodations.
Happy to host you! Look forward to your return. Mary G.
Charming, lovely home in Tucson close to University
This house was just delightful for a stay in Tucson while attending a conference at the University. The house is tastefully furnished and decorated. Everything was very comfortable. We enjoyed meeting Mary the owner and hearing more about all the great places withing easy walking distance--restaurants and a terrific independent bookstore, Antigone. The neighborhood was great for walking--interesting older homes that are mostly unique.
Thanks for the nice review. It was such a pleasure to meet you both. Glad you enjoyed the house and the neighborhood!
CJ is centrally located, very comfortable, and cute. Mary has covered every detail of what a traveler would need or could possibly want -PLUS!! Even though we didn't have the pleasure of meeting her, she was in contact and always responded immediately. We would not hesitate to stay there again.
Thanks for taking such good care of my historic house. Hope to see you on your next trip to Tucson! Would love to host you again.
Relocation to Tucson
Having accepted a job in the Tucson, AZ area I was lucky enough to locate Casa de Jacobus. Its excellent location near the University of Arizona, useful amenities such as kitchen and WIFI, and beauty made it a great place to get started in Tucson.
Casa de Jacobus is a great place for anyone who is traveling to Tucson for business or for recreation.
I was very pleased with both the house and its location.
Mary does a great job in her description of the property. I booked the house for a three week stay. Upon arrival I found the house was appointed with all the necessary items one would need for a short or extended stay. Mary, the owner, is verry approachable and quick to respond to any questions you may have. I would not hesitate to book another stay the next time I am in Tucson.
Thanks for the nice comments! I was happy to host you and glad to provide the summer discount! All the best, Mary
