Peaceful and Serene

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting Tucson during the winter for several years; this was our first stay in this lovely casita and we were not disappointed! The tasteful furnishings, especially the sofas and the mattress were the most comfortable of all the places we have rented. hosts, Ro and Dave were most accommodating to any need we had. We very much enjoyed our large private covered patio which had a nice set of table and chairs as well as a grill for our private use. A large water feature along one wall made for tranquil sounds that was so peaceful. See other reviews for more good information that we won't restate. We have family in the Tucson area so this location was perfect for us. We look forward to staying here again next winter.

Perfect for adults who want a quiet private home

  • 5 of 5
My second one month stay in the past two years. Suggest you read the review by Cam. All that he said is correct and I will update and add a little. The owners have completed construction of their house which is attached to the Casita. In no way does this impede upon the privacy of the residents in the Casita. Ro and Dave live next door and are rarely seen. The Casita has every facility, its own patio and BBQ and every TV channel you could desire. The perfect location for one or two adults for a long stay who are active hikers or cyclists and or those wanting a self catering, tranquil location for reading, sitting in the sun and touring the Tucson area. Safeway is a 7 min drive with a wide selection of restaurants within 7 to 30 min drive. Don't hesitate book now and enjoy Tucson. Colin, Canada

Among the Best!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a month in this lovely and comfortable Vacation Rental. We could not have been more pleased.It was everything advertised and more! The Casita is beautifully furnished with an abundance of space for relaxing and, as my wife and I are fond of cooking together, the kitchen had plenty of surfaces for two people to be involved in food preparation without getting in each others way, sharp knives (not always found in similar rentals), and provided a fully equipped kitchen with quality appliances. A small library was available along with very helpful books about the southwest, birds and animals native to the area. Among the first impressions we had when arriving, was of the very thoughtful decorating touches that spoke of a sincere warmth and welcome to this home.
The outside space was expansive with two patios, one just off the house and the other just a short walk along a well-designed pathway bordered by lighting in the evening. Both patios afforded spectacular views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. We could not get enough of the gentle wash of sunrise and sunset colors bathing the mountains daily. Another pathway led down a gentle slope to the fenced neighboring horse ranch. A swing provided space for quiet and relaxed viewing of the horses.
The location provided a secure sense of privacy as the Casita sits on a large lot in a quiet neighbourhood of similar lot sizes. It is within walking distance of a trail leading into the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area and a short drive to the East Saguaro National Park and to Mt. Lemmon. For hikers like us, this was a perfect location. As well, there are a number of restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries and other shopping conveniences nearby. The city center of Tucson and the University area are easily accessible and we took advantage of all the city has to offer many times during our stay.
The owners, Ro and Dave, provided an assortment of pamphlets and brochures on the many opportunities of this area and were always available and genuinely responsive to the slightest question or request. Even before we arrived, knowing that we were interested in spending a good amount of time hiking, they had provided us with information about several of their favorite hikes as well as links on the web for other information.
This Vacation Rental felt like home from the moment we arrived, and we are very thankful to have had the opportunity to spend a month in this home.

Vacation in March

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I found the property was a nice place to relax and enjoyed a quite time in the country side. It was a little futher away from The downtown area than we thought it would be, but once we got our bearings,we found the place to be Great.We especially enjoyed the outside patio. The property is fenced in on three sides and is especially nice for a peaceful and Quite stay. The rental was very clean and fixed with everything that is needed for a very enjoyable stay.We would recommend this rental to our friends,because we feel that they would enjoy this home away from home.

Incredible Tucson Casita

  • 5 of 5
If you want to enjoy what's wonderful about Tucson, you will not be disappointed with your stay at this casita. It was extremely clean, comfortable and wonderfully appointed. It is a private paradise that is also an incredible natural sanctuary. I enjoyed the mountain views and the wildlife everyday. I liked this casita so much I tried to get the owners to sell but apparently they love it too! I fully recommend this casita.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for one or two people to hang out, chill out, and recharge. The location is very tranquil and relatively isolated, with a stunning view of the Santa Catalina Mountains, yet convenient to restaurants and shopping. Downtown Tucson and The University of Arizona are only 20-30 minutes away (depending on traffic). There’s even a public library just down the road. The Morris Udall Park and Recreation Center (with public swimming pool) is also very close by. We were able to achieve a nice balance between relaxation, shopping, and sightseeing, though the patio is so lovely in the morning that it’s hard to get going anywhere. We would just sit out there over morning coffee, watching the hummingbirds play around the feeder and soak in all the other natural sights and sounds. The interior is equally charming, with enough amenities to make it feel like a second home. It is tastefully decorated, open, and free of clutter. We enjoyed catching up on our email or browsing the internet at the kitchen bar, or curling up with a book in one of the cozy chairs or the sofa in the living room. The iPod dock in the living room made it easy to play our favorite music whenever we wanted it. The owners/hosts are very gracious and provided all the information that we needed to enjoy the casita, the immediate area, and the rest of Tucson. The owners are easily reachable by phone, text, or email, to respond to any questions or concerns. In short, we absolutely love this place, wish we had a place like it, and have already booked for another stay in March of 2013.

From the Owner

Have you ever rented a place that looked great on the web site only to find it lacking in person? The non-stick cookware is shot, or the shower drains so slowly you stand in dirty water, or there is a bucket in the living room catching a 'small' leak from the unit above? Well, as a traveler all three of these things have happened to me. I can assure you that this will never happen to you at our Casita. We live right next door. The premises are thoroughly inspected between each stay. Any issue that pops up while you are here can be taken care of immediately, or held off until you leave, if that's what you prefer. When you arrive, the home will be ready for you to enjoy every minute of your vacation.

From the Owner

As a builder, I am proud of this home. From its unique architectural lines to its elegant southwestern decor, I believe the home is truly a special place. But the truth is, I could build this home anywhere. What really makes this home a complete joy to live in is the location. The home sits on one acre in a quiet, residential neighborhood. There is a solid 6' high privacy wall enclosing the entire backyard. This is about 1/2 acre. While it is very peaceful sitting in the home, the backyard 'Tucson Table' area is tranquility at it's finest. Sit back, or lie back on the zero gravity chairs, and listen to the wind tickle the mesquite trees, hummingbirds proclaiming their territory, and the coyotes announcing the sunset - or sunrise - if you are up that early. We have spent many an evening watching the sunset across the majestic Catalina Mountains. With all the nooks and crannies, it never grows old.
