About Gigi Brown
Hi, I am a retired interior design professor. A devoted yogi. For 40 years in this dear home and it still remains my sanctuary. The home has lots of character. I have been blessed. You will love it too.
Gigi Brown purchased this House in 2007
Why Gigi Brown chose Peter Howell
I choose to rent some of my home because of too much house. It's now like a duplex, separated by enclosed hall and utilitie room. Remember thick adobe walls, the areas of each house parts are not attached, just passage way with locked doors at either end of passage hall. it's prefect!!!
What makes this House unique
Welcome, Your guesthouse is the main residence and very comfortable and private, although semi attached to east wing, where I live. You have your own patio, (a pool & backyard which we might share). It"s amazingly comfortable & convenient all around. The best benifit is location. Close to everything. You will be in the very center of Tucson, a short hour drive from Mt. Lemmon, there is a ski reort, and yes a winter, sometime you can ski our 9000+ ft mountain. Also, two minutes drive to a great public golf course. Minutes away from University of Arizona campus and three major hospitals, UMC, TMC and St Joseph's. Our location is within walking distance from the Speedway and Alvernon intersection.

Comfortable and great location
Owner was terrific and very responsive. We were very comforatble and had everything we needed.
Amazing architecture, but cluttered and dusty
First of all, the positives: This is a wonderful, 80-year-old, adobe home in a quiet neighborhood. The location is great for anyone needing to visit the University of Arizona. The owner, and her dog, are friendly and helpful.
There is great potential for this to be a wonderful home to visit, but we found the home to be over-decorated. This caused several problems: There weren't any flat surfaces on which to place our things as they all had vases, candlesticks, scarves, artificial flower arrangements, etc. on them. We ended up living out of our suitcases for six days. The decorations and many throw rugs make this a very difficult house to keep clean and many surfaces are really dusty, including light fixtures. This would not work for someone with allergies, and it did detract from our comfort.
The furniture is not comfortable at all. The beds were comfortable enough, but the pillows smelled musty. The living room sofa and side chairs are very old and lack padding or springs. The sofa tends to push one onto the floor. We also wished there was a desk or table to use with our laptop and a table for playing cards.
Lastly, there was a strong floral odor, like air freshener or Fabreez, that permeated the home for the whole week. It never seemed to lessen and was completely objectionable. We never felt like cooking and eating a meal.
A few minor changes, better furniture, and a thorough cleaning could make this a wonderful rental.
Beautiful and relaxing haven in a great location
My husband and I stayed for a few days with our two teens over midwinter break, and we had such a nice visit! Gigi has created a such a calm and beautiful environment. She has put thought into every wall and every corner. I wish she could come and help me decorate my home! The beds were comfortable and the living room had a nice chair for everyone.
The kitchen had everything we wanted for light cooking (pasta) and reheating food, and it was nice to have a french press and electric water boiler. The house is in a very convenient location-- we had stores, a nice coffee shop, and restaurants within an easy walk, and pretty much whatever you need within an easy drive. We enjoyed eating breakfast outside on the patio, and it was nice to have a large table to eat at and for playing games after days of enjoying hiking in the Sonora Canyon and cave touring. Gigi made sure we had everything we needed and she was on hand next door in case we had any trouble. But we didn't have any trouble. Everything was perfect and we had a great stay.
Very cluttered! Needs to clean out closets and kitchen cupboards!
Eclectic home in the heart of Tucson! We were 5 and it would have been better for 4....The owner is on site with info on all things Tucson....She and her dog, LuLu, are very friendly and helpful...
Thank you for your evaluation. You are so right. That one closet needs a redo. It’s crowded with bedding.
Kitchen cupboards needs to reduce.
I appreciate you taking the time to write. I enjoyed having you. Hope your knee is feeling better! Thanks again🤗
Good spaces for two couples!
Cozy and comfortable all around!
We shared this stylish 2BR with family and loved having a nice house to just sit and visit in. It's so comfortable and felt like home right away. The neighborhood was close to everything and we enjoyed morning walks. I'll come back again and I'd recommend to anyone needing a place in Tucson for 4 or 5 people. Really enjoyed it!
Thank you! You guys were great!!! So glad it all worked out. Hope your Dad stays healthy and happy for many years to come. I really do hope to see you again in the future.
