Guestbook comments from the owner

We needed a comfortable place to stay after long days in the field. The house is amazing with respect to the detail. Everything is perfect. It is well stocked with everything you need for an extended stay and Carella will assist you if there is anything you need. The comfortable beds! Brilliant after a long days work in the desert. We also enjoyed the backyard where we saw families of quail, javelina (marking their territory on the bird feeder), jackrabbits, scorpions, and families of cactus wrens! In summary Carella makes this an easy place to have a vacation, or in our case, a research trip. The best field “Station” ever!

A very comfortable casita and an awesome location.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed for one week and fell in love with place. The setting in middle of the desert is terrific. Bird watching was great and never got tired of just waling the property and among on the desert vegetation. The casita is very comfortable and ample room with just the 2 of us. There is definitely room for a couple, couples; and/or a family. The furnishings are great. Awesome bedding, all of the kitchen items you will need for your stay, including a blender and crockpot. The patio is a great place for your morning coffee and sunrise. The pool is perfect and a great way to end the day after out seeing the sights of the Tucson area. From the casita you have easy access to anything you want to do in the area. We did day trips to Patagonia, Tubac and many of the sights around Tucson and the central location made it easy to get to any of these places. We intend to return and hope to stay much longer than a week the next time.

Carella's casita

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! It is close to everything you could ever want to do in the Tucson area (which is a lot), clean, spacious immaculate, secluded, quiet - we couldn't have asked for more. If we ever return to the Tucson area, we will return to this house if possible. Highly recommended!

Another wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at Carella's Casita. Once again it was a wonderful experience. My sister and I came down for a week of R & R and had a great relaxing time. The Casita is everything we needed and more. The swimming pool was excellent once again. The weather was perfect for spending the afternoons out at the pool and soaking up the beautiful Arizona sun. The wildlife is amazing, Hummingbirds, quail, doves, jackrabbits, butterflies and more. I highly recommend the Casita and have plans of going back again next year.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for family who were visiting from out of town. It is a fantastic place beautifully decorated in southwestern decor. The house was super clean and had everything they needed, including rafts and items for the kids to use in the pool! The beds were comfortable and although advertised as a casita it is a spacious 3 bedroom house.

Although it is very close to shopping, the house is tucked off the road and surrounded by desert plants on a quiet road. They had the pool to themselves and although the owner lives next door, and checked in with us to make sure all was well, there was plenty of privacy.

This place is pretty much perfect and we would definitely rent it in future.

Perfect home base for the week

  • 5 of 5

We picked this home based on the prior reviews and they were all very spot on. The home is wonderful and extremely well appointed.

Carella is so nice and really has thought of everything. The backyard was a small paradise and our 2yr old was overjoyed by all the wildlife we saw even just sitting out for breakfast.

We felt comfortable and at home here and it was the perfect place to come home to and relax after a busy day of adventures.

You won't be disappointed staying here.

The casita is the ideal holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 30 days at the Caseta. It is the perfect location for travelling the area and there is much to see. Do your homework first! Caralla is a first class lady and unbelievably helpful when needed. I would love her for a neighbour back home. The Casita is most comfortable and has all the amenities you need. Shops and town are minutes away. If you want to site see, perfect. If you just want to chill out, perfect for that too. Would we go again? Definitely yes, if we are able

This northwest, Tucson home is tastefully appointed to make a comfortable and cozy vacation home. With a short drive down an unpaved road (100 yards) the casita is encompassed in an oasis surrounded by nature. See sightings of cottontail rabbits, Gambel’s quails and an assortment of lizards, hummingbirds, and squirrels. Catch glimpses of javelina, coyotes or jackrabbits that might visit the neighborhood. Surrounded by fabulous mountain views which add to stunning sunsets and sunrises.
