Family and Friend Time
I was visiting from Albuquerque for family events and fun with friends. The guest house was perfect for my visit. The guest house had everything I like to have in a vacation rental...including a pool to cool off in the summer heat. Loved viewing the wildlife from the dining table inside while having coffee in the morning.
Would definitely recommend and rent again.
Oasis in the Desert 🌵
We absolutely loved the Quail’s Nest. It was perfect for our sibling reunion in Tucson! Exactly as advertised. Wish we could have stayed a few more days. We loved the birds that visited right outside the kitchen windows. We even had a rattlesnake sighting... but hey, it made the desert experience very authentic :) Ellie and Bruce do a great job making their guests feel at home and provided everything needed for our stay.
Highly recommend this property!!
Love this place!
Ellie's place was awesome--very clean, simple and quiet. Everything you need is right there, right down to the little touches. My son and I will definitely be back!
Bruce and Ellie's place is a little slice of desert heaven. The apartment is adorable and comfortable. Super clean with a comfy bed and sofa sleeper. The patio that leads outside is a great place to watch the resident birds and smell the desert smells. Peaceful and restful, yet close to great places to eat. Didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. Would stay here again!
Charming, Peaceful, and Natural
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Quail's Nest! It's a beautiful and peaceful environment. Our hosts, Ellie and Bruce have obviously put much care and thought into creating this quiet, charming spot. Very restful. They were lovely hosts; always accommodating and helpful!
We hope to return!
Quails Nest was a perfect oasis during our weeklong trip to Tucson. The guest house was so comfortable and a great place to return to each day after touring and hiking. Ellie and Bruce made it so easy and comfortable. The prickly pear margaritas were amazing. The location is perfect, views of the mountains right there and easy access to so many of the parks. Even with cool weather and SNOW a fabulous trip and spot. We loved watching the birds and views from the dining room table. Hope to come back again and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here. Thanks!!
