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!

Great weekend in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

John was a great host and we wanted for nothing. He even stocked the fridge with a couple of beers! Very nice 'casita' with separate entrance. We would definitely return!

John's place was the best. An easy, beautiful, quiet And comfortable place to stay in Tucson.

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful trip here. I was working at Centennial Hall and was a 5 min Uber ride to work. Place is beautiful. John was available and responded quickly to any questions or needs that arose. I wish I had this shower in NYC. It rocks. Pool is great. Was in it every day. Great patio. The kitchen area had everything you would ever need and the Dish cable is the best. Stop reading this now and book John's great place. Also, he is a real friendly guy and has a sweet, quiet angel of a dog.

Am so glad I found it and wish I could stay a month. Thanks John. Next trip to Tuscon, I am there !

A great experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at this property. The owner keeps the rental and the property immaculate and it is a peaceful and private space. He continues to be very welcoming and accomodating! I definitely would recommend this rental to others.
