It truly was Almost Home

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely impressed with the casita. It was so much more then we expected . Everything was immaculate and the casita was quite large. We totally enjoyed our late afternoons on the porch. One afternoon we saw a coyote. There were also hummingbirds that came to the vine on the porch. Gary and Bonnie are very nice people and they just made our vacation so much more enjoyable. We are looking forward to a future visit. Bonnie thanks for the tip about Viv's Cafe. A great local place to eat!

Gary and Bonnie are excellent hosts: friendly, helpful, and caring. The "casita" was as promised: a well equipped kitchen, great bedroom, and blissfully quiet. Also enjoyed being serenaded occasionally by Jasmine, the donkey, and at night by yodeling coyotes. Great mountain views.

Peaceful Country setting

  • 5 of 5
We were very comfortable staying at the casita "Almost Home". The view of the mountains was great and at the end of the day we
would sit out-doors and relax and listen to the birds. We enjoyed taking trips each day to one of the many interesting sites to see.
The weather was fantastic and that is such a plus when on holidays. We did enjoy our visits with Gary and Bonnie and thank them
for making us feel so welcome. We do hope to return some day all being well.

Real Nice location and House

  • 5 of 5
I gave this place a 5 star review because it really is! The house is in great shape and really nice inside and out, with plenty of room for 2 people. The location is close to the city but secluded enough to be very quiet. Other then the owners your nearest neighbors are a few horses, a donkey and many birds and rabbits!

The only slight problem which didn't bother me at all is the TV only gets a few local channels and the wi-fi is spotty inside the house. But still it's well worth the money...I'll be back!

This was a wonderful place to stay, we loved everything about it...the casita, the location across from the Saguaro National Park, the horses and burro, the little garden area, the sunsets...and most of all, the kind and talented hosts. A terrific base for hiking and sightseeing, beautifully quiet with superb star gazing. We will definitely come here again!
