True Tucson desert hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience the essence Arizona desert plants and animals, plus an amazing view of the Catalina Mountains to the east, total peace and quiet and be in beautifully designed and built adobe casita, this is the place. The walls are super insulated for comfort in the heat and infloor radiant heating keeps it cozy in the winter. Even though you are at the end of a short dirt road and feel like you are in the middle of a park, there is a Costco within 15 minutes and the center of town is not much further. The bed is comfy, bathroom has a tub with shower, walk in closet, big kitchen open to the living room and dining area, and windows in the right places for inviting the outside in. Though you would never know it, the owners live next door and are very generous about getting you settled in and sharing their knowledge of the house and the area. We liked the house so well that I measured all the rooms to remind ourselves of how much space you really need to feel absolutely comfortable if we ever decide to build a small house.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We relocated to Arizona and stayed here while house hunting. This rental is surrounded by beautiful natural desert landscape with lots of wildlife to see but yet only 5 minutes from shopping centers and restaurants. The homeowner was extremely nice and very helpful if we needed anything. We would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful, Charming, Wildlife Abound

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly two months over the spring working in the local area. The cottage provided a wonderful refuge at the end of the day. The area is quiet and peaceful but with easy access to local amenities as well as a short drive to Tucson. The hosts are friendly and responsive and respected our privacy. Highly recommended for both short and long trip!

This was a nice house and a nice stay.

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay between houses and this house was perfect. It's a very quiet location with lots of wildlife and beautiful views both west and east. Not so wonderful TV channel choices but adequate for a month. The AC worked great which is important in August.
