New heating and air conditioning ensure your stay in Tucson will be comfortable.

There is a large flat-screen television that is connected to WiFi, so you can access your movie streaming accounts. There is also a DVD player.

Safe location, clean, good for people with small dogs

Perfect rental house

The house was very clean and has everything you need. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to UofA football field. The only negative is the washer/dryer is one unit so doing a load of laundry takes a long time. Close to grocery store, restaurants. Free parking in front of house on weekends and has carport in back.

Comfortable, well-kept house in a quiet neighborhood

It was so nice to be able to bring our dogs along for a weekend away. There are lots of fun things to do near the house too! Nice sized yard for pets and covered parking :-)
