Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here with John and Chloe, his adorable dog whom we wanted to adopt!

The holiday let is set in a quiet, secure garden with swimming pool and garden furniture for pleasant outdoor meals and drinks. The property is very clean, well maintained and has everything we needed for our stay. It is also close to the shops and handy for the buses which run frequently along Speedway Boulevard to downtown Tucson.

John is a friendly and helpful host with a great sense of humour. We felt so relaxed in the informal atmosphere here and it was a great retreat for us after the busy days we spent with our son and daughter in law and their three young children who live close by.

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome in your property. We hope to be back again in he future.

Good for all stays

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time at this property, and it continues to provide a practical and comfortable home base when I am in Tucson on business. While it definitely avails itself of one and two night stays, it is also very comfortable for extended trips. My first year I spent 14 days and my second year I spend 12 days.... very comfortably! Fridge, stove, oven, big tv and large shower are just some of the conveniences. Host is attentive and consistent, property feels very safe, and the resident dog is a simply a love and joy.

This property had everything we needed for our stay...a comfy bed, well equipped kitchen area, TV, powerful shower and a beautiful outside space with pool and seating area. It was spotlessly clean and felt homely.

Situated in the Sam Hughes district, we felt safe and secure in a peaceful neighbourhood. It was close to our son's home and a great retreat from the daily chores of caring for our young grandchildren!

John is a wonderful host, helpful, kind and respectful of his guests' privacy. We will definitely be booking this property again and would recommend it highly.

Beautiful, comfortable studio and a great host

  • 5 of 5

We visited Tucson for winter bike riding and had a great stay at John's place. The studio is roomy and well equipped in a good location, and John was extremely helpful, letting us use his shed to store our extra bikes. Definitely hope to be back!

Always excellent guest cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with John multiple times now and it's beginning to feel like our own home-away-from-home. John is a thoughtful host, paying just the right amount of attention to our needs. The place is always clean and well-stocked; the welcome is warm, and the Sam Hughes location is perfect for us. While we miss his friendly old dog Victor, we are happy to see the equally friendly new dog Chloe taking her place in his household. It's very easy to stay with John and it makes our visits to Tucson so much more relaxed, knowing that our housing situation will be comfortable.

Excellent stay at a wonderful poolside cottage

  • 5 of 5

I came to Tucson to be with a new grand baby and found John's cottage on VRBO. It is a great value for a wonderful spot. The cottage is in John's back yard, behind a grassy lawn and next to a pool! My first day at the cottage I took a dip and it felt wonderful, even though it was October. The cottage is outfitted with a full kitchen (except dishwasher, as noted, but really not needed), a very comfortable bed, writing desk, armoire for hanging clothes, great bath with a tiled shower, and two very comfy chairs for TV watching. John and his golden lab Chloe came over to greet me and John remained a great host. He was readily available to answer questions, adjust the TV, and also respected my privacy. I had my own keys so could come and go as desired. The WiFi was fast (I streamed movies on my laptop). And the cottage is a few blocks from lots of stores and restaurants - but you can't hear the traffic noise. Residential and convenient. The best of both worlds. Thanks John!
