Close to University of AZ campus - Great find!!!
My husband is a Univ. of AZ Wildcat alum and a huge sports fan. We made plans with Univ. of WA friends last year (after the Wildcats lost to the Huskies) to travel to Tucson to watch the rematch. As the game date drew closer, we discovered this "rematch" fell during UofA's "Family Weekend" and all hotels near the campus were booked up months in advance. My husband can be tough to please and is leery of vacation rentals. He prefers to stay at Hilton or Marriott hotels where he knows what to expect. Although he had his doubts, this place won him over! The home is conveniently located close to campus. If you plan to visit the campus - this place is PERFECT! We were able to walk to campus (10 min walk), to the football stadium (20 min walk) and even caught the "Red vs. Blue" basketball game at McHale Center. There is a wonderful shopping district near campus, great restaurants (highly recommend Gentle Ben's Brewing Co.) and happening places for "night life" all about a 10 minute walk away. There are also some additional dining options & an awesome cafe/organic foods market just a block away. The rental is tucked back in an older neighborhood and could be a little bit tricky to find after dark, but we were lucky and found it quickly. I felt very safe/secure, as the rental has an exterior locking gated entrance through the yard which leads to the home. Also, the home has those wonderful "security screen doors" that are popular in AZ. The home was clean, nicely furnished and had updated bathrooms & kitchen. The beds were quite comfortable. The home has a patio in the fenced yard with beautiful outdoor furniture and a gas barbeque grill. We had plenty of room and didn't feel we were tripping over one another. There is a TV in each of the 2 bedrooms, and one in the family room, with the cable listings provided. The home has secure wireless, with the access code provided. Surprisingly, the home's location was quiet and peaceful, even with the close proximity to businesses. I really can't think of any "down" side to this rental. The owner took great care to make sure everything you'd need is provided. I wish we would've had more time to enjoy this lively little find. We will definitely stay here again the next time we travel to Tucson! In case you're curious, the Wildcats beat the Huskies 52 -17. Our UW friends are eagerly awaiting the next "rematch" in hopes their Huskies can try to beat the Cats!
