This was a lovely hidden treasure in the city of Tucson. Very comfortable and best of all, pet friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the house on Second Street. It is a lovely place with a wonderful southwest ambience. It is evident the hosts take a great deal of pride in this house. The hosts are also quick to respond. We called several times, and received help by the third ring. The location is also close to downtown and the university area. We highly recommend this!

Home away from home
Apr 2020

We really enjoyed our stay in the property, the owner was in touch if we had any questions, and very accommodating to our situation. The house was a cute perfect place for us to unwind on our mini getaway from Texas …. the flowers that were blooming on the cactus in the backyard was the highlight our stay!!!!

A comfortable place with a quiet central location. Everything you need is waiting. Well landscaped with great evening lighting. Host works hard to make the stay easy and just right. We enjoyed all the trick-or-treat visitors on Halloween.

Hello from Taylor and Yuko

Taylor – I’m originally from Oxford Pennsylvania, though Arizona has been my home since 1997 and I absolutely love it! Cooking, gardening and reading are just a few of my favorite things to do in my spare time. I love to travel and am very friendly and personable and enjoy meeting new people from all over the United States and beyond. With that said, hosting is something I enjoy very much 🙂

Motto: “Live for today, Plan for tomorrow, and Learn from Yesterday”

Yuko – Born and raised in Japan until Junior High, went to High school and college in Tucson Az. Just started my apt in Fukuoka as rental , for I plan on returning to Arizona here in the near future, though Fukuoka will always be “home”. Keeping my place there keeps me connected for when I return, Which will be 2-3 times annually. Very much a people person, and this Vacation Rental has been rather fun..:)

Together – We make a great team and We look forward to meeting all of you !!
