We have so enjoyed your hospitality and your sharing of your lovely casita. Once we know the date for next year's conference we will be in touch to book another stay. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

We have had a great stay and actually had time to relax!!! We had a great stay. The location was so convenient to the conference. Kim was great and very hospitable. We look forward to staying next year.

Nice Property and Gracious Owner, but....

  • 3 of 5

Stayed the full month of March 2018. Very nice place in a great location within Starr Pass; and owner Kim was gracious, and conscientious in attending to issues. Unfortunately, I experienced excessive maintenance and cleaning issues during the first two weeks. These perhaps could have been prevented by the use of a comprehensive checklist followed in-between visitor stays. Some of this could also have been addressed with the weekly cleaning service; as the VRBO profile, and email communications, specified. After week two upon inquiry I was told this is ad hoc service, and has to be scheduled if asked/needed.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weeks stay at Star Pass Guest House! The house is located in a beautiful setting and was in a great location for our sightseeing and hiking ventures of the day. House was clean and very comfortable, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable with nice linens. Slept great.....very quiet! Owner lives on premises and was helpful if we needed something. We didn't use the pool due to cool temps. We felt that staying here was SO MUCH more comfortable than the beautiful Marriott which is across the road (several blocks distance though).....Star Pass Guest House is a good value for very lovely and comfortable accommodations AND then go enjoy a drink on the patio (hold on to your wallet) of the very beautiful pricey Marriott up the road. Would definitely recommend this rental to others and would love to come back!

Owner's Response: Deb, thanks for a glowing review. We've had several guests who are attending a convention or meeting at the Marriott, but stay here at the guest house. Hope to see you again! Kimberly and Amy
