Vegan Guest House-Tucson

I’ve been a strict vegan since Animals 101 held in Tempe in April 2005 and my husband and I are trying to create a veg-friendly atmosphere with our newly remodeled King-studio Guest House. Our goal is to provide a veg-friendly king-studio in Tucson to travelers/snowbirds, etc. looking to affirm and devote themselves to the veg life-style. The Guest House rents for a minimum of 30 days (plus) and we believe we offer folks the chance to learn who they are again. Or to be adventuresome. Or to be one with nature. As long as they are vegan or very, very veggie. Here’s the link to our site so you can see for yourself what we have to offer. I just finished building & publishing our web site and since this is my first attempt ever at doing so, I would like to think it’s user-friendly. The web site: www.projectvegan.com
