Your historic apartment in the Old Pueblo awaits!

Located on bustling 6th Ave., this completely private, luxurious apartment was a doctor's office when built in 1903. Now the space hosts travelers who need to be in the heart of the action.

Galleries, concerts, festivals, parades, live theater, bars, restaurants and shopping are within blocks of this art filled city escape!

Die Unterkunft
Decorated in a modern palette of crisp, clean colors, your apartment is an inviting, sun drenched space just steps from downtown Tucson. You enter off of 6th Avenue--home to five star restaurants, galleries, Armory Park, the Children's Museum and historic mansions from Tucson's fabled past.

Time your stay just right and you can watch the internationally famous Tour de Tucson start and finish from the elegant, sweeping steps outside your front door! Not here for the race? The Tucson Parade of Lights, Cyclovia and dozens of other festivals happen throughout the year just a block away in Armory Park.

Your front door opens on to the living room and an expanse of solid oak, hardwood floors. Dappled sunlight filters in through the hardwood blinds. The living room is furnished with chic leather couches that fold flat into delightfully comfortable beds. Vintage suitcases hold luxury linens for overnight stays. Art by local Tucson artists enlivens the walls and a solid hardwood desk with Lucite chair makes taking care of business an enjoyable task.

The eat in kitchen used to be the exam room when your apartment was staffed with medical professionals. Now, the glass front medical cabinet is yours to store your things. Walk to Johnny Gibson's to buy fresh produce and cook your meals on the copper clad cookware in the fully stocked kitchen. Enjoy filtered water, fine teas and a french press for the perfect cup of coffee in the morning.

The bistro table for two is flanked by fine art, a vintage obi (kimono sash) and hand carved, hear-no-evil monkeys. Nine months out of the year Tucsonans dine al fresco in the delightful desert air. You can too while you enjoy the finest people watching in Tucson. The front garden patio is lush with plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies while the 75 year old Queen palm gives shade and sweet dates for the adventurous.

Your bedroom features a decadent queen sized bed topped with high thread count linens and mounds of pillows to snuggle in. The bed is crowned by beautiful sari fabric, an Italian crystal and wrought iron chandelier and a hand-carved wooden headboard. Heavy velvet curtains block light and sound and an exotic bead curtain separates the closet from the bedroom.

The bathroom is split into two small rooms. One features the original, 100+ year old sink and a mural by Tucson artist, Lana. The other, features a waterfall shower head, hand carved wooden accents and flickering LED candles with remote.

Every detail has been carefully considered for your comfort.

Please note, this is an historic home. The windows are original and not as sound proof as modern ones. There is no central heat or air but each room has a modern, quiet window unit and radiant space heaters. The bathroom is located off the bedroom and is small by modern standards. We think these minor problems are outweighed by the charm of this historic building and we hope you do too!

Tucson, Arizona, Vereinigte Staaten

Tucson is a remarkable city nestled in the lush Sonoran Desert. Populated for over two thousand years it has a vibrant history. Your apartment is located at the intersection of two fascinating neighborhoods--Armory Park and Barrio Viejo.

Around 1933 Dr. James Harvey Robinson, History Dean at Columbia University wrote this on first visiting the Barrio: "But this cannot be the United States of America, Tucson, Arizona! This is northern Africa - Tunis! Algiers! - or even Greece, where I have seen as here, houses built flush with the sidewalks with pink, blue, green and yellow walls, flowers climbing out of hidden patios and overall, an unbelievable blue sky. And the sweet-acrid smell in the air? Burning mesquite. Lovely! And the people - charming. But all this is the Old World, not America."

Many of the still standing Barrio row house were built in the 1870's. Made with 18" adobe walls and plastered with brightly colored 'cal' paint, they are the largest collection of 19th century adobe buildings in the USA.

Your apartment lies at the corner of the intersection of Barrio Viejo and Armory Park. Tucson incorporated in 1871 with a population of 3,00. A year later, Armory Park was surveyed and railroad workers began building houses here. The spacious, tree lined streets were made wide enough to let a 7-mule team do a u-turn, in sharp contrast to the narrow streets of Barrio Viejo jjust a block away.

Lawyers, judges, politicians and other professionals quickly colonized Armory Park and turned it into the fashionable part of town. Architectural styles vary wildly in Armory Park with adobe Victorians and Greek Revivals standing shoulder to shoulder with Anglo-Territorials.

Your apartment lies on the Turquoise Trail, a walking tour by the City of Tucson that highlights historic buildings. Just follow the turquoise line painted or tiled into the sidewalk to discover the rich history of this wonderful city!

Hello! My name is Donna rae. I'm a working artist here in beautiful downtown Tucson. I enjoy meeting folks and their pets from around the world and consider it one of the best parts of hosting on Air BnB. :D I'm an avid reader, have traveled around the globe, speak semi-acceptable Spanish and spin fire. I enjoy scuba diving, flying, thrift stores, Burningman and volunteer work. Two of my favorite things are interior design and historic buildings. I feel incredibly fortunate to live in this beautiful old home and in such an incredibly interesting neighborhood! When I'm hosting people, I love telling them about the rich history of Armory Park and Barrio Viejo. That and sharing favorite restaurants, thrift stores, theaters and fun things to do. When folks have a terrific time in Tucson. it feels great!

Während deines Aufenthaltes

I live in the house next door and am always a text, phone call or knock on the door away! Please let me or my husband, Lyle, know if you need anything at all. Extra linens, a book to read, restaurant suggestions or just someone to chat with if you're in the mood--we're here for you.

I'm often outside gardening on pleasant days. Sometimes grilling or having a glass of wine with friends on the front patio. Come join us and say hello! (Some of my friends are dorks and so am I. Fair warning!)

Otherwise, you'll have your own private entry and if you prefer minimal interaction, check-in is quick and you'll have the place all to yourself. I'm happiest when you are enjoying your stay. :)
