About this space

Our Oro Valley home (North Tucson) has beautiful views. Private room and bath. Sleep Number Bed. Whole Food, Plant-Based Breakfast included. Quiet neighborhood with walking/biking paths. Nearby lovely hiking in Catalina State Park. We are LGBT Allies. No added fees, such as cleaning fees.

The space

Our home has beautiful views both front and back, yet we are not in a remote location. Our neighborhood has plenty of stores and services including a wonderful library minutes away. Trader Joe's is less than a 15 minute drive from my home.

As our kitchen is plant-based, we ask that you not bring into our home any animal-based food that may be leftovers from dinner or in your car cooler; Thanks for you cooperation. Please know that though we love to share our plant-based lifestyle with interested folks, we do not proselytize to our guests. Only if you're wanting to know....

Our home is quiet so if you are looking for a restful place to stay, you found it!

Guest access: We want our guests to feel at home so all public areas of our home are open to you, not just your bedroom. Of course we have wi-fi for you!

The kitchen

Here's how we do breakfast. We are happy to make you breakfast if we are home which is typical of our schedules. If we are not home, or you leave before we are up and around, we welcome you to help yourself to coffee/tea and any of the plant-based food we have on hand. We will always have on hand oatmeal, healthy bread, nut butters, and fruit. You are welcome to use our kitchen if you would like to prepare something plant-based. We would expect you to clean up afterwords.

Like many folks in Tucson, Denise and Georgie are in love with the Sonoran desert, beautiful open sky, and sunny weather. Denise is from Oak Park, IL, a suburb of Chicago, and Georgie is a Tucson native. Both of us have had previous long-term marriages with wonderful people and now in our 6th decade of life, we happily find ourselves in a new domestic partnership that is very fulfilling. Denise’s life has always revolved around her desire to engage in projects that promote social justice. She is an educator and social activist at heart and has been engaged in a variety of venues and social issues throughout her life. In her mid-50s, Denise earned a Ph.D. in Sociology. Since moving to Tucson, she has been engaged in public speaking on issues pertaining to the LGBT community and as a whole food, plant-based educator. She loves to play her African djembe, her new ukulele, and enjoys hiking and biking. Georgie’s life has revolved around the core issues of work and family. He’s had experience with many types of jobs with an emphasis on trucking, construction, and landscaping. As a Tucson native, he has family ties to both horseracing and mariachi music. George loves to pursue outdoor physical activities with Denise and also has learned to play the Djembe, an African drum. He also loves cooking up delicious dishes for our friends and our plant-based nutrition classes and enjoys creating cooking videos that are posted on-line on our Happy Vegan Couple sites. Denise and Georgie are very passionate about the wonderful benefits of enjoying a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) lifestyle and they promote this lifestyle as WFPB educators in Tucson and on-line through internet sites such as Facebook and YouTube under the name Happy Vegan Couple. We do offer plant-based nutrition and cooking classes should you be interested while staying with us; let us know what you'd like to learn and we will add a reasonable additional charge to the daily rate depending on the amount of teaching you would like. Denise and Georgie are happy to invite Vegvisits guests to their beautiful home. All visitors are welcome that bring a positive spirit and a caring heart toward all groups of people.
