Desert Poet Lair in Midtown Tucson

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Tucson, Arizona
Enter the house and settle back into the 1950's when times were more carefree.  The Desert Poet's Lair is a two bedroom,  one bath house located in midtown Tucson, near Poet's Square.

The University of Arizona Central Campus is just two miles away wi... Read more
