The house was as described, only better.

  • 5 of 5

I and my two grandsons stayed at the Santa Fe style charmer for 30 days in July, 2016. The location was perfect for us. We were close to the library, Tucson Racquet and Swim club, the university and our place of business. The swimming pool is perfect for that end of day cooling off.

We found the house clean and well equipped. All of the appliances worked well. Many of our meals were prepared on the grill. When we were not eating in, we sampled some of Tucson's myriad of Mexican restaurants.

The covered parking was important to us as the daytime temperatures always exceeded 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

While in Tucson we also enjoyed visits to the Pima Air Park, Arizona Historical Museum, and Desert Museum as well as hiking and camping nearby.

I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and will seek this rental if we return to Tucson.

Owner's Response: Jerry, Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so glad the location worked well for your needs and are pleased you were happy with the accommodations. You were a delight to have and appreciate your willingness to refill the propane tank on the grill for us when it ran out. We would love to have you stay with us again in the future if the need exists. All our best! Chris and Mariya

The owners met us with a bottle of wine and that set a tone for the whole stay. The house was perfect for our needs and helped us relax and enjoy a great week in Tucson.

Thanks for the great hospitality!

Great property, quiet location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property! Convenient location and very quiet area. Pool is just across the street. Kitchen is stocked nicely with whatever you may need. Secluded patio with a grill. Large space for dining indoors or hanging out watching tv. The owner is extremely helpful and accessible. Will definitely stay here again next time we're in Tucson.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Our group consisted of two couples and dog and we very much enjoyed our stay here. The property was spacious and clean with a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable living area, pleasantly shaded patio area and front carport. The swimming pool just a few feet from the carport, although not heated and too cold for use during our stay, was still a nice area to lounge in the sunshine.

The house is within a 15 to 20 minute walk to some great restaurants and pubs including el Saguarito where we enjoyed every taco Tuesday and their nightly entertainment. Also walking distance or short drives away were grocery stores, shopping centres, weekend markets & horse races at Rio Rillito.

Great bike paths & running/walking trails were along the Rio but unfortunately the bikes originally detailed in the listing were not available.

Several reasonably priced golf courses were within 30 minutes (Forty-Niner, Quarry Pines, Crooked Tree & El Conquistador) as were numerous hiking trails in the surrounding mountains as described in a book left by the owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, it was a pleasure having you in our home. If you visit Tucson again in the future, we would love to have you stay with us again. Thank you for the comment about the bike. We had a bike there through the rental of January but moved it to our other home so we could use it. We updated our listing to reflect that, but perhaps the update did not reach you by the time of your stay. Nevertheless, we appreciate the feedback. All our best! Chris and Mariya
