We have gone Beyond Covid -19 protocol !! We use both a product called In-Cide ( sold at Home Depot ) as well as wipe everything down with a hospital cradle sanitizing agent that kills Covid 19 and other known viruses in 10 minutes after contact. We’ve changed our check-in time to 4 pm and the place is aired out for hrs. before cleaner even goes in. Everything is washed in the hottest longest cycle the washer! We’ve had no issues at all. We provide hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap as well for all our properties.

We feel certain that we are providing a safe place for our guests to stay and have received the same feedback from guests

We didn’t stay at the casita much as we had a lot on our agenda in a short period of time. Everything was well thought out for comfort and convenience. It is an easy place to have a dog as the neighborhood is great to walk around. The location was good for downtown and sight seeing.

I stayed here for a few days while I took short courses at the law school. Peter accommodated a special request from me to connect a DVD player, which helped me unwind in the evenings after spending 8am to 6pm doing some heavy thinking and discussion in class on concepts and frameworks. It was great to come home, and pop in a DVD of my sci-fi TV series and be unbothered by Netflix decision making. Closeness to Whole Foods and Bookman’s is great, and it was a quiet neighborhood. I will always look for this place when I need to be back  for trainings from the university. The city’s name comes from an O’odham word describing mountains that are black/shchuk at their base.

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 !!
