I'd be VERY careful in choosing a neighborhood. Tucson is not a place to price shop for apartments. You could end up in a great apartment in a very undesirable neighborhood! Choose your neighborhood and then decide what you're willing to pay to live there. It isn't just personal property you need be concerned for...it should be your life.

1200RT, I moved here from the San Fernando Valley myself on 1 June 2007 and I live on the eastside. My rent has gone down since I've been in my apartment. My current rent is $515. I have a private balcony, a wood burning fireplace, a dishwasher in the kitchen that comes with stove, refrigerator and the aforementioned dishwasher. This complex has approx. 200 apartments. We have 2 laundry rooms with the new he frontloading washers. In the summer, there is the jacuzzi and large swimming pool. The grounds are landscaped with trees and lots of greenery. It is also pretty quiet. There are good places to eat nearby and the little coffee shop across the street gets rave reviews when I ask customers exiting how they liked the place. If you like good fresh produce reasonably priced there is a little market called Sunflower Farmers Market where they brew fresh coffee you can sample while you shop. You can look at their website. This market is very popular. Whole Foods is good although if you don't want to travel that far to Whole Foods, Sunflower fills in very nicely. Trader Joe's is also popular here. In the past two years I have been here, I still have to pinch myself to see if it is true that I left sooty, smoggy, Los Angeles County.

Since you can work from home, and you want a quiet, nice area, but within easy driving distance of restaurants, etc, you might consider Oro Valley. There are apartments right across the street from Pusch Ridge, and just 5 minutes from Catalina State Park (if you're into hiking). Lots of convenient shopping both here in Oro Valley, and within 20 to 30 minutes in Tucson.

Here's a place that might just fit the bill for you:
