traveler reviews for this tucson cottage rental

"Almost Home" Is Exactly That

Review submitted: November 28, 2013   Date of arrival: November 5, 2013

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Helpful votes: 1 / 1


Peaceful Country setting

Review submitted: April 4, 2013   Date of arrival: March 1, 2013

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Real Nice location and House

Review submitted: April 3, 2013   Date of arrival: March 10, 2013

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!

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Thank you so much. We enjoyed meeting both you and your wife. You were the ideal tenants in every way.
