About the property

Spacious 2 BR 2 BA - Walk to UofA, Med Ctr, Fourth Avenue & Downtown

This beautiful casita is in a lovingly restored early-1900s carriage house, in the West University Historic District. This is a large space - 900+ square feet - and sleeps up to 6 comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Conveniently, there are 2 exterior doors to the apartment - 1 in the living room and 1 in the master bedroom - making it ideal for couples or families traveling together.

Comfortably appointed with everything you need to make this your Tucson home, the casita has been completely renovated. There are saltillo tile floors and original artwork throughout. There is off-street parking in front of the apartment and a beautiful, private yard with table, chairs and grill for enjoying the outdoors.

Short or long-term rental.

There is no smoking allowed inside the casita. Sorry, no pets.

The casita comes completely furnished, with WiFi, flat-screen TVs (main TV is a Smart TV so you can watch Netflix), digital antenna, DVD player, CD stereo that is MP3 compatible, washer/dryer, iron/ironing board, ceiling fans, central heat and air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped, including stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, cooking accessories, dishes and silverware.

The casita sleeps 4-6, with Queen-size beds in both bedrooms and a Queen-size fold-out sofa in the living room. All bed and bath linens provided. Rent includes all utilities, cable TV and wireless internet service.

Located in the heart of the West University Historic District, 5 blocks to the U of A campus and 1 block from the 4th Avenue retail district. Walk to downtown, restaurants, shopping, and arts events at the University. Within 10 minutes of Reid Park, home of the Tucson Zoo, the Randolph and Dell Urich golf courses, and a lovely outdoor pool and Rec Center.

All outdoor activities abound, or just enjoy sunny Tucson from the private, walled yard. Porch/patio is perfect for outdoor dining or just basking in the sun.

If you like, we can do a pre-arrival shopping of food and beverages on a cost/hourly basis. If you will be here for any of the holidays, we can also supply decorations and have the place festively adorned for your arrival on a cost/hourly basis as well.

Love the Casita

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at the Casita! It is so charming and quiet. We were able to walk most places and took the tram when it wasn't walkable. Such a great location. It was the perfect spot for the three of us. We spent lots of time on the patio enjoying the peace and quiet and the lovely weather. Thanks so much.

The Casita fit our needs perfectly! The courtyard was lovely, it even had a citrus tree with beautiful fruit! Loved everything about it! Great location to explore downtown. We'll be back!

Back Again!!

  • 5 of 5

Once again a great stay at a neat little gem. The location is ideal for the UofA visitor with University Av. and the campus easily walkable from the site. Down town is also within reach on foot. (Don't miss out on coffee or pizza on the patio at Time Market just a block and a half away.)

This casita is a clean little refuge and well appointed. Very comfortable and a very good bargain. Much less than the high priced hotels in the University area.

We just wish we would have discovered it before our daughter's junior year.

What a great little casita!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying in this sweet little casita nestled in a quiet historic neighborhood. I stayed during the month of August while I helped my daughter move into her dorm at the U of A and a 2nd time in the month of Oct. All I can say is the AC worked splendidly, the beds were comfy, the kitchen was loaded with all your cooking needs, and the private court yard was a nice place to unwind during the evening. The casita is blocks away from University Blvd. and 4th Ave. where you will find amazing eateries and shopping boutiques. The pictures don't do this place justice! Susan is a great host who will answer all your questions. Give this little casita a try...you won't regret it!
