This adjacent property with neglected casita sat vacant for 4 years. I love renovating old homes and creating a unique living space.

A wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Mi Casita is everything we look for in a vacation rental. It is comfortable, expertly appointed to accomodate any need, and has a homey and relaxed ambiance. We experienced a feeling of seclusion as well as close convenience to the heart of Tucson. Joanne is a great host: there if you need her and invisible if you prefer solitude. The neighborhood is very quiet and we felt perfectly secure at all times. The far off train whistles we heard a few times added to our enjoyment. Off street, locked parking is certainly a bonus that you don't ordinarily find. All in all, a perfect week in Tucson!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 overnights in this cute casita. The host was warm and inviting and her treats to get us started appreciated. We walked thru the historic neighborhood and to town. Even had a chance to take in the gem show and drove to Sabino Canyon. Comfy bed, great bath and kitchen.

Charming, comfortable casita

  • 5 of 5

The casita was a perfect home base for our recent Tucson visit. It’s very well-equipped in the kitchen, the bed is large and comfy, and the inside is spacious and comfortable but also very cozy. Joanne waswonderful! She was ready for our arrival and had prepared a few small breakfast/snack/fruit items, which was perfect given our late evening flight. Getting to/from the city sites and the nearby hiking was a breeze. We’d definitely stay here again!

Cozy & Comfortable in Historic Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Joanne's Casita is as it is described - quaint, cozy & comfortable. Kitchen is well-stocked, the fresh fruit & snacks were a nice added touch. Walking distance to several restaurants & a fun neighborhood to explore. We enjoyed our stay.
