The space

The 525 sq ft guest apt is set back on one acre of quiet, lush desert with indigenous wildlife and starry nights and is located on the first floor of our two story home. This fully furnished one bedroom apt has one queen bed and a full bath. If you have a child or third guest we have a single bed we can set up next to the queen bed and it is available upon request. We clean the apt and linens with eco-friendly products and our water is filtered throughout the whole house. The kitchenette has an induction electric stove top, small electric oven, microwave, fridge, pans, dishes and cutlery. The cupboards are stocked with essentials like spices, oil, honey tea and coffee. The small living room has a new large loveseat couch and a 32" Tv with access to Netflix and local channels. There is a sun room (porch) with a patio table. Also there is a grill and picnic table that are available for your enjoyment. Uncovered parking, shared laundry and excellent Wifi access are included. For clarity; my family lives in the 2nd story and the guest apt for rent is located on the first floor and on the west side of the house, the apt itself is located on the quietest area of the whole property! The guest apt has it's own private entrance located around the side. Keep in mind that although we are in a semi-rural and quiet setting there will be some upstairs family noises because this is not a separate guest house. For our summer guest the family swimming pool is available from May through September, We provide swim towels and pool toys and children under 2 years old need to wear swim diapers.
Please no pets are allowed and no smoking indoors allowed here. Our aim is to ensure an allergy free zone and for our all of our guests.
This semi-rural retreat is located 5 minutes to a grocery/shopping center, 10 min. to hiking trials, 15 min. to the University of Arizona and 25 min. to the Sonoran Desert Museum.
Your hosts, Dan and Teresa, are long time Tucson residents and are happy to share their knowledge of the desert, the southwest's attractions and seasonal festivals.
If you are curious, our home based business, Still Waters Float Spa, offers r.e.s.t. (reduced environmental stimulus therapy) or more commonly known as sensory deprivation in a salt pool and our float spa is available to our guests at a discounted rate.

Very convenient but secluded enough to really get the desert feel. The property is gorgeous and very very quiet. I felt so at home here. I can’t wait to cone back and stay here again. Teresa was an amazing host and she was always there if we had questions or if we needed anything…

Wonderful place to stay for a quiet respite. Teresa has thought of everything and the place was well stocked, comfortable and private. We were there for our grandson's wedding and didn't get time to interact with the hosts much at all, but what interaction we had was very pleasa…

I enjoy exploring the road less traveled, both inner and outer worlds. Tucson has been my home since 1983. I've studied, worked and played in the fields of archaeology, art and music. Ha ha ;-) and then came the kids! For 8 years we home schooled our boys, though they are now…
