''Desert Sun'', A Charming Mid-Town Bungalow in Historical Sam Hughes

Sleeping Accommodations: 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Bedding Information: King, Queen, Double & Queen Sofa Sleeper

"Desert Sun", a lovely, centrally located 3 Bedroom, 3 bath home in the peaceful and wonderfully friendly old Sam Hughes Historical Neighborhood. Imagine enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in the early morning as you sit on your front porch or in your living room and watch the sun rise in the east. Then, at the end of the day, relax in your dining room or on your back porch with friends and your favorite beverage as you watch the sun set in the west. There's nothing like the desert sky.

Just a short stroll to restaurants, markets, University of Arizona, shopping, entertainment, parks and city transportation. This home is located in the middle of everything but you'd never know it because it is so quiet you can actually hear the birds sing. This home was built in 1952 and within the last year has been remodeled & tastefully redecorated combining ethnic, antiques & contemporary furnishings. Please Inquire!

Stayed here for a week during our daughter's graduation from U of A in May 2008. Clean throughout, well kept and a quiet neighborhood. Would recommend to anyone!
April 5, 2006 Andrea A Glastonbury, CT
We came to Tucson for a week and were fortunate to have the ideal place for our family to stay. It was exactly as described on the website! This house has just the right features and location so we could enjoy being together. The house has a great design that affords privacy, when you need it, and room to be together, when you want it. It is located near shopping, parks, and restaurants and is a good home base for sightseeing. The lovely, flower-filled yard is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We enjoyed preparing meals in the easy-to-use kitchen. The owner was very accessible and went out of her way to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed.

We came together from several parts of the country and were pleased to find everything we needed for our combined vacation and family celebration. We couldn’t have asked for more and hope to return again soon!
