About the property

Centrally Located, Two-Bedroom Single Family Home That Accepts Pets

We're not new to this and have another studio VRBO very close that we've been operating since January of 2010 by so you can book with confidence that we know what we're doing. Just ask and we'll be happy to point you to our other VRBO lising with many happy Reviews and a five-star rating.

We're marketing this property for the budget-conscious and/or those who have dogs. We're going to be happy to accept your furry buddies! Rates are on a sliding scale and there are some other restrictions -- Too many to go into here so please check the website or contact us.

This is a cozy two-bedroom home with a single bathroom. It has a Queen bed in the master and a full-size in the second. It has an 'Arizona Room' (screened-in patio), large backyard, laundry room with washer and dryer, kitchen that will is outfitted with many amenities.

The Arizona Room has seating for four and a table plus a brand-new propane powered BBQ grill.

Four brand-new TV's are in and hooked up to expanded cable. One 28' for each of the bedrooms, one 39' for the living room and even one little 19' for the kitchen. Free, fast and secure Wi-Fi is also waiting for you.

The major upside to Glenn House is its convenience to get almost anywhere in Tucson quickly as it is so very centrally located. The downside to that is, it is on a fairly busy corner with a four-way stop. With this brings traffic noise though it is not particularly noticeable within the house and it is mostly limited to morning and evening rush hour traffic, Monday thru Friday. Again, please visit our website for more information.

We hope you'll find the furnishings and decorations attractive and pleasant. We've tried to keep Guests comfort in mind when furnishing the home and we believe we've acheived that very well.

About Fran Garcia

We've been living in Tucson since being young adults (that's a lot of years now!). We know Tucson very well and have watched it grow tremendously over these past thirty-five years. We LOVE central Tucson and live just a few blocks from Glenn House. Central Tucson is so diverse and makes it so convenient to reach so much of what Tucson has to offer in restaurants and attractions. We've been running another VRBO that's attached to our home since our Grand Opening there in January 2010 and it has been a terrific experience! We had this rental property and realized it could be a dandy VRBO not only for it's convenient location but also because so many people now travel with their dogs and this house is perfect for them. We hope we've made this property into a very comfortable home away from home for our Guests and if there's anything we can do or supply, we're just around the corner (literally!) and can act very quickly to get it done.

Fran Garcia purchased this house in 2004

Why Fran Garcia chose North Dodge

We've owned this property for many years and realized it could be a dandy VRBO rental being so convenient to all Tucson has to offer and that we will accept dogs here.

What makes this house unique

This very central location truly makes it easy to reach just about anywhere in Tucson quickly.

Homey and Close to Downtown!

  • 5 of 5

The Glenn House was perfect for my stay in Tucson. My friend and I are travel nurses and we rented the house during our 3 month assignment in Tucson. Fran and Charlie were wonderful! They were very accommodating from the very beginning. They answered all of our questions and sent us additional information on the property, which made our decision easy for such a long stay. They met us at the property and showed us around the house. The house is fully furnished with everything you would need! They had lots of kitchen supplies and appliances. The beds were very comfortable, and we had plenty of linens and towels. They supplied us with bathroom items and cleaning supplies for our whole stay. We received emails from them about upcoming events and fun things to do in Tucson, which was great since we didn't know much about the area. They were very quick to take care of the few minor maintenance issues that we came across, and always made sure to work around our schedules. I brought my puppy with me, and they even had plenty of dog supplies for her along with treats to welcome her! She loved having the fenced in back yard to run around and play. The fence in the back yard is secure and high so i never had to worry when i let her out! We loved the fact that we only had a short 6 minute drive to the hospital (TMC). The location of the house made it convenient to downtown, plenty of shopping including the Tucson mall and upscale shopping in the foothills, hiking, and lots more!! I would absolutely rent from them again!

Second stay even better than the first!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay our second time at Glenn House. We love the house. We had everything we needed. The dogs love <3 the back yard and the porch and dog door.

Everything was super comfy and perfect.

We hope to see you at our housewarming at our new Tucson house!

Again, we appreciate everything. Glenn House is a perfect location for Tucson!

Thanks so much!

"home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your "home away from home" these last 3 months! We have really enjoyed it!

You provided all we needed -- from dishes & utensils to beer glasses and a crock pot . . . and wonderful snacks which we had to keep hidden so we wouldn't gain 15 pounds! It was a nice place to entertain relative who were also visiting Tucson -- everyone liked your decorating and western color scheme. I especially like the bathroom with the shower curtain accented by orange, blue, green & yellow towels!

We appreciated your willingness to share your knowledge of Tucson -- area, movies, restaurants, shopping and local attractions. It was very helpful :-).

The backyard patio was nice for larger groups to eat and our granddaughter to play. She liked playing in the yard with the dog -- safe & secure for both of them. Pete liked sleeping in the 2 doggie beds! Oh, and Larry liked to recliner for his afternoon nap.

A few other things I should mention include your providing a NEW Christmas tree for us to decorate and enjoy. This was especially nice since we were away from home at Christmas, as planned. Also, whenever we ran out of necessities, like Kleenex or green tea you were quick to provide it. Thanks for that!

It's time for me to stop writing and do our packing. Again, we appreciate your helpfulness and we recommend your "Glenn House" to whomever we know if they need a spot to stay in Tucson! Bye for now.

Central Texas

Wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

The Glenn House is a very well furnished (in every conceivable way) home away from home. Fran has anticipated everything that we could ever hope to need. The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable with all of the modern conveniences. The location is very central for the places that we like to visit.

Having stayed in Garcia House (same owners) my only lack at Glenn House was not having Fran, Charlie and pups right next door!

Loved Glenn House

  • 5 of 5

Glenn House--what a wonderful home away form home! Centrally located, incredibly well stocked with every conceivable need (including edible goodies), beautifully decorated with harmonious theme and colors, this abode really felt like a home not just a place to hang ones hat. Fran and Charlie (who live but a few blocks away) are attentive hosts who suggest activities attuned to their guests needs and wants, also supply copious written material ie brochures, highlighting local sites and delights.

We are seasoned travelers of more than 50 years and declare that Glenn House was one of if not the most comfortable lodging we've had during our decades on the road.
