We have chosen to return to the Azure Gate B&B year after year because we feel so very good there.
Dennis and Christine, the proprietors, have always made us feel welcome and comfortable. Off Catalina Highway, on the northeast outskirts of town, it is quiet and just far enough out of town that the natural setting predominates. Your northern horizon is the Santa Catalina Mountains and all around you is dessert foliage and constant bird activity. We eagerly watch for wildlife passing through and have been rewarded with sightings of Gila Monsters, Road Runners, Hares and a Bobcat.
We enjoy hiking in the near by nature preserves and also going into town for shopping, used book stores, body work and a great variety of dinning experiences. Tucson is an eclectic town; a harmonious mix of old and new. A short walk from the Azure Gate will get you to Le Buzz, our favorite cafe, or to other places to have a meal.
We have stayed in both separate guest houses and they both have their own distinctive character and charm. The accommodations are immaculate and beautifully decorated. There is a pool to cool off in and nice outdoor areas to lounge around. We often choose to stay in because we actually relax.
We return when we can because we always have a great recharging experience.
