“A nice apartment with some improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed for two weeks arriving on Christmas day; Nancy, the owner/manager, was very willing to bring us the key that afternoon and spend time showing us around the apartment, how the heating and hot water heater worked, where everything we would need was located. We were also given a parking permit for our car that allowed us to park anywhere in Tucson, that was a great feature. Also, Nancy gave us the privacy we desired. The apartment was cosy and charmingly decorated and there was wifi connectivity. It was spacious for two people and there would be room for three if that person slept on the couch. We enjoyed the apartment itself and the location was great as we found several outstanding restaurants close by, for some, within walking distance. However, I feel I need to mention three things for future renters and for the management of the apartment that would make the rental of this apartment even better: the bed is a double and very, very soft and there wasn't anything to be done about this once we were in the apartment but I found it uncomfortable. Also, the other three apartments in the building are rented out to non-vacationers and while we didn't hear anything from the other side of the building, the people directly above were loud. Of the 13 nights we spent in the apartment they had parties, or what sounded like parties, on five of those nights. New Year's Eve was the loudest but this was understandable. The other four party nights it sounded like heavy furniture was being moved over our heads for several hours into the late night. Again, this might not be a problem for some. And, thirdly, we did not receive our security deposit for over two weeks when we were told we would either have it the day we left or, according to the contract, it would be mailed within the week. Perhaps it was simply an oversight but it was inconvenient. All in all however I would recommend this apartment to a friend having told them of the above.

“Charming downtown rental”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

A lovely place although a bit tight for 3 people, especially as the 3rd is air mattress in the sun room behind the bedroom area. But perfect for two, very convenient to convention center, good restaurants, etc. And nice to have more room and full kitchen rather than staying in a hotel room for an extended time.
