Moving to Tucson hopefully in April- looking for SAFE, quiet neighborhood. Heard Central Tucson was a good place to rent Casitas there- have 2 non-aggressive dogs- I am a great tenent (pay bills on time)- middle-aged-wanting long term lease- hate to move- need small yard. Also seeking w/d hookup & off street parking, 1 bedroom/bath w/ tub & of course air conditioning. What areas/streets would fit my needs? I am having a hard time finding anything but apartments listed by realters on the web. I already am checking craigslist. Other places to look for Casita in Tucson???
Thanks for help!

Casitas are common pretty much only in the Sam Hughes neighborhood. Occasionally they can be found in 85749 zip code as well. There were also some small stand-alone houses with small yards built a few years ago in the area around Alvernon/Country Club & Fort Lowell/Glenn roughly.

However, while sometimes it may be possible to find a casita for $400/month, usually they go for more than that.

Tucson's MLS has rental search as well: Tucson MLS

you may have to bump up your rent budget a bit, maybe....

what you call a casita may more commonly be called a guest house to some....as stated, Sam Hughes has lots of these, as well as Blenman-Elm, and other mid-town 'hoods...check out 85719 and 85716 zip codes....you may want to stay E of Campbell to minimize student areas....

maybe the paper has some ads?.... azstarnet.com

maybe try googling something like "sam hughes guest house for rent" or "tucson guest house for rent"

Not sure about the dogs, Katherine . . . but I have seen some banners advertising One Bedrooms Apartments in fairly decent neighborhoods in that price range.

Good Luck

Speaking of budget, I remember I saw some amazingly cheap studios when I was looking for an apartment long time ago. In 2001 the rent with all utilities included (which is not something I normally recommend because the complex decides when to turn on the heat and AC) was $400! However, I believe they were 240 sq.ft. I've no idea how a person doesn't go nuts in there, let alone with animals (if they're even allowed in such places)... The complex is at the SW corner of Grant & Craycroft.
