This homey casa in South Tucson is just 10 minutes' taxi from the airport, 20 minutes' drive from Saguaro Nat'l Park West, and just blocks from the Santa Cruz River Trail, your gateway to The Loop bike trail. We have two guest bikes available for exploring the town. Keyless entry makes check-in a breeze!
Our easy access to the Tucson Loop bike trail makes this the perfect stay for cyclists. This quiet south Tucson neighborhood also offers easy access to I-19 for folks wanting to head south to Tubac, Patagonia, and Bisbee. We're just 8 miles from the Mission San Xavier del Bac (a great bike ride!) and 16 miles from the Sonoran Desert Museum (also a great ride).
Disponible para huéspedes
We have bike tools and a stand available for maintenance, and can assist with any routine issues that may arise with your ride (flat tires, low tires, brake pad replacements, chain clean and lube).
Guests can also use the kitchen, living room, and patio/back yard fire-pit. There's also a gas grill outside for all your BBQ needs.
Please note that we do not have a television, but if you have a laptop or other device, our wireless internet is available for your use.
Atención a los huéspedes
We're here if you need us, and can stay out of your way if you don't. We are happy to accompany guests on bike rides around the area, and know several local hiking destinations as well. We love to cook and eat, and will happily share a meal with a guest now and then, with the contribution of a loaf of bread, block of cheese, bag of coffee, or bottle of wine ... :)
- No shoes in the house, if you're cool with it (we're not going to force you).
- No smoking, but backyard is fine.
- Be nice to the house cat, Remus; he was here long before us. Milagro (Remus 2.0) is the smaller, fluffier cat. Both are orange--Remus is the chatty one.
- If you use the kitchen, please keep it neat. You don't have to wash dishes; just rinse and stack them near the sink for us to wash later.
After having lived all over the place (Africa, Southeast Asia, Pacific Northwest, Europe), we've finally settled back in the US ... but the urge to move around will probably never go away. We are happy to finally have our "home base," and we love that we have a sanctuary where we can cook, eat, watch good and bad TV, and laze on the porch.
We met while working in Myanmar, and both continue to work in the education sector in Arizona. We are pretty relaxed travelers and hosts who love to get up early and see where the day takes us (mostly, it takes us to food and our bikes).
