average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Wonderful casita. Perfect place for desert getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable and well equipped casita in lovely desert setting. Great hosts. Although in quiet country area, it is only a few minutes to stores and restaurants. Highly recommended.

We didn't want to leave this sweet little place

  • 5 of 5

This casita on the outskirts of Tucson is a little gem. My husband and I, along with our little dog recently stayed for 10 sunny days and lovely starlit nights. Everything about the accommodation and setting exceeded our expectation. It was quiet, clean, comfortable, pleasantly designed, and nicely situated with views of the mountains and Tucson in the distance. Up close we could watch birds and stars, and listen to the coyotes as the sun set each evening. Nice trails and walking areas nearby and even an excellent dogpark nearby. The owners, living nearby, made themselves available to help or answer questions, without disturbing any of the privacy that we valued so much. We were sad to leave and hope that perhaps we'll be able to come again sometime. It was lovely!!!

Lovely Casita, Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I so much enjoyed staying at the casita; it is so charming! Although it seemed far from things at first, I quickly found it is just a short drive to most everything needed. I loved having the paved pathway at nearby McDonald park to walk for rehab from surgery. The area itself is perfect for walking, peace, quiet, and relaxation or for hiking, biking! I stayed here for an entire month and could not have found a more perfect place! The owners are helpful but unobtrusive, responded promptly to minor issues (battery for the fire alarm).

Nice comfortable beds with sumptuous bedding! Washer and dryer in the unit, single car garage, private patio, hot tub. Bountiful wildlife in the area that can be viewed from within the casita. All made my stay very pleasant!

I also want to mention how nice it was to come into a short term rental that is so carefully presented. I've stayed in more than one VRBO rental where opened food items were left in the refrigerator and cupboards: Expired salad dressings and pancake mixes, opened boxes of pasta, carry out bowls in the cupboard with the dishes. In comparison, this casita is well equipped and also refreshingly clean and classy.

A "gem" in the desert

  • 5 of 5

This casita is truly a "gem" in the desert. The desert was blooming in late April/May which made it specially delightful. We saw much resident wildlife - quail, orioles, humming birds, coyote, javelina, even an unobtrusive gila monster - from both the back and front patios. The outdoor spaces were comfortable - a covered back patio and gorgeous shady mesquite in the front. The appliances made cooking easy; storage was ample; pillows on the furniture added lovely colorful accents that blended with the southwestern art. The accommodation was perfect for two cats and their two human "staff." Having a garage was a plus. The WiFi and TV worked well. The owners, Susan and Steven Sheldon, were friendly to both us and our cats and were available to our needs. Basic shopping was conveniently close and the location is close to east-side desert attraction, including Mt. Lemon, Sabino Canyon, Saguaro National Monument East, and Agua Caliente Park. Downtown and northwest Tucson are a distance through town traffic. With a good map or GPS getting around Tucson is easy. Traffic is moderate. This is a place we would eagerly return to.
