Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay: Stay with us at La Casita del Sol, an historic 1880’s adobe rowhouse home in the El Presidio Historic Neighborhood in downtown Tucson, Arizona. La Casita del Sol has five hundred feet of living space, with two rooms and a bath, reflecting the simple lifestyle of the late 19th century workers who lived here – tradesmen, blacksmiths, bartenders, and more. La Casita del Sol keeps its original simplicity and charm, combined with beautiful, comfortable aesthetics and modern amenities that travelers today expect. Our guests are close to everything: Tucson’s unique culture, natural beauty, historic sites, and flavors our wonderful Southwestern Cooking. There are many great sights within easy walking/cycling distance from La Casita del Sol, and many more an easy drive away. Walk through our hundred-year-old doors, hand crafted in Mexico into your own private patio, where you can sip a cup of coffee or tea in the sunshine on a warm winter morning, or relax in the shade in the summertime. The courtyard is decorated with beautiful Southwestern pottery and local plants, and at night, the courtyard becomes a magical place with the twinkling of tiny lights and the flicker of candles – the perfect place for a cocktail or nightcap. When you enter the bedroom/sitting area from the patio, you’ll see beautiful wood floors, a historic beam and saguaro rib ceiling, and our charming beehive wood-burning fireplace – a warm and cozy Tucson adobe home. Unpack and relax in our soft guest robes. For entertainment, La Casita del Sol comes with satellite TV (with movie channels, music, and 24 hour news). We also have WiFi internet access, so you can stay connected to work or friends and family back home. At night, you’ll relax in our queen-sized bed, with plenty of plump pillows – it’s also a great place to watch TV or to snuggle up with that book you’ve been meaning to read. Our bright, Mexican-tiled bathroom offers more relaxation – soak for an hour in our antique claw-foot tub, or shower away the day’s cares. There’s also an antique table and glass shelves for your toiletries. La Casita del Sol also has a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, with artisan furniture and beautiful wooden cabinets. The kitchen has a complete set of dishes, silverware, linens and cups and glasses – make yourself coffee or tea, or a full meal at home, or enjoy one of the great downtown restaurants within easy walking distance. We supply our guests with a welcome basket filled with fresh fruits and local pastries, bottled juice and water, coffee and tea to get you started, local soaps and bath products, and paper towels, cleaning supplies and dish soap for the kitchen. There’s also an iron and ironing board for guest use. Come stay with us in the heart of Tucson, the Old Pueblo, and enjoy the great sights and flavors of Southwestern culture!
