A real gem near the University

  • 5 of 5

Terrific place. Bonnie was a wonderful host. This is a private guest house on the property with secure parking behind their gate. Very private. This is the first VRBO rental where we felt that we were at home relaxing on the couch. Highly recommended. Ideal for parents visiting their student at UofA. Walking distance about 1 mile to school or a quick drive.

Pretty House

  • 5 of 5

In Spanish, Casa Bonita means "pretty house" and this little casita just north of the campus of the University of Arizona is indeed a pretty house. I recently spent nearly a week in Casa Bonita, with summer monsoon thunderstorms arriving daily, and it was the quintessential Tucson experience. Tucked into the front yard of a similarly styled, but much more grand, southwest style home in Tucson, this casita had everything I was looking for. A quiet street, a spacious layout for 1-2 persons, a very comfortable bed and soft linens, a full kitchen, and a decor that reminded me of everything I loved about living in Tucson decades ago. My hosts, Bonnie and Steve, who live in the grand house, gave me a thorough orientation on the first morning that I arrived. They had wine and water chilling in the refrigerator, along with a half-dozen farm fresh eggs! But after that I felt like I was living in my own home, and almost forgot that I even had neighbors! That's my kind of host. If you are looking for peaceful Tucson living for a few days, Casa Bonita is the pretty house for you.
