Description

MUST LOVE DOGS! First of all, I am new to hosting and don't have my own RV yet (its going to be a van) so I don't know exactly what y'all need as far as hookups. I don't have extension cords or extra hose (spigot is in back yard so I'd have to turn it on/off for you) but if you have your own then let me know and we might be able to get you hooked up to power and/or water for a fee.

My location is in the middle of town but feels almost secluded since its away from the street and offers the security of a fenced yard (or vans can back into my personal spot outside the fence if you prefer). The location is in an older residential area marked by divided lots, duplexes and condos. You would have access to the large, fenced, front yard portion of my property but hopefully only taking up a corner of it. There is room to park under partial shade of trees or in full sun.

I work from home as a pet sitter so I am nearly always here with a bunch of dogs. My clients also use the large front yard to pull in, exchange their dog, turn around and leave. This happens several times a day, somewhat predictably starting ~6am during the week, lasting sometimes until 9pm, so if you are a light sleeper I cannot promise you undisturbed rest, peace or quiet. However, for the sake of my neighbors, I assure you that I do my absolute best to be sure my business is as quiet and discreet as possible. This includes barking dogs. Of course they bark a bit here and there but mine are generally well trained or have bark collars or ultrasonic devices nearby. My backyard is fenced separately from the front yard so if you have your own dogs, they may spend time off leash on your side so long as the front gate closed and none of my guest animals are out in the backyard.

I'm not generally the 'invite you for supper' type, mainly due to my work, although I would love to host people who are friendly, even a bit chatty, and wouldn't mind showing me your rig at some point during your stay. I'm more of the 'share stories over a second cup of coffee' type. If you simply want to park for a night and keep to yourself, that's fantastic as long as you don't mind my dog work. I am usually extremely busy anyhow.

House Rules

Rottweilers and Pitt Bulls are not welcome
Please no children
No smoking of cigarettes
No loose cats (cats are fine if they stay in your rig or on a leash)
Please don't linger outside if you see clients arrive or if I mention I have a drop off or pickup coming. It usually only lasts a few minutes but I prefer to avoid the dogs seeing people or distractions besides me and their owner during that exchange.
Please be courteous about lights and sounds.
Please communicate with me! You don't necessarily have to be gone by a certain time, however due to the nature of my work I need to know about the comings and goings of any/all vehicles and animals on my property at all times so I appreciate as much advance notice as you can provide.
I have city trash, recycling and a composting tumbler for organic material. You are welcome to use these as long as you don't fill them completely and use the correct bins. Recycling must be clean/ dry and I will probably be butt-hurt if you throw recyclables in my trash.
Please observe general residential quiet hours.

Access Road Conditions

It's all flat. May be a bit tight getting in/out. Driver will need to be very mindful of my and neighbors' fences, but for smaller rigs it should be great. My property itself is not visible from the street as is behind another lot so access is via a shared easement similar to a long driveway. The easement might have once been "paved" as there are some potholes to avoid, however its mostly a light layer pea gravel once you turn off the street. Getting into my yard you will need to turn but my gate is very wide and I wouldn't say its a sharp turn. I have had a small box truck, a pickup hauling a small trailer and handful of other large service vehicles here without a problem.

Availability

Location

Tucson, AZ, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

Walking distance to Tucson Hop Shop (pub with dog friendly patio) in the Metal Arts Village. Walking Distance to Mexican, breakfast and fast food. Minutes from Walmart, short drive to other shopping, Costco. Dedicated bicycle lane from my road to The Loop. Just a few minutes drive is the Tucson Botanical Gardens, although you could definitely walk there as well. I'm a bit out of the way of the freeway, however my central Tucson location is fairly convenient if you're checking out Mount Lemmon, University area, Downtown, Colossal Cave and Saguaro National Park-East. Feel free to leave your rig while you're out exploring on foot, bicycle, bus or rideshare. Tucson also has 2Go, a bicycle rental program, so you can likely walk to a rental bike or perhaps ask me for a lift there.
