We're Fran and Charlie Garcia and have lived in the Tucson metro area for most of our adult lives. We LOVE Tucson and especially midtown as it's so convenient to get to all the great venues, restaurants and attractions that Tucson has to offer. This apartment is attached to our home but we're highly sensitive to your privacy and recognize that you don't come to Tucson to visit us. There's only the two of us here but we do have a Guest House with a very long-term tenant in there on the far other side of the property. Charlie has been at his job for over thirty years and in all those years has never called in sick or been late to work! Fran works out of the home and runs the VRs . We do have another one and if you need a larger place and/or one that accepts larger or multiple dogs, please be sure to see our other listing here Glenn House
