Guestbook comments from the owner

Views all the way around. Close to the best part of the Saguaro National Park. Best sunsets close at Gates Pass. Home is immaculate. Pool is refreshing. Patio and watching sun rises is the perfect way to start the day. Kitchen is stocked with top shelf cooking tools and flatware. Beds and baths are so comfortable and clean. Carella is a charming person. My wife and I already promised to be back.”

Pleasantly surprised!

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website don't quite depict the grandeur of this "casita." We were impressed by the size of the rental. Much more than we expected. Carella knows how to run a vacation rental! She has thought of and provided everything a guest might need. We enjoyed the pool every evening, watching sunsets and storms. In the mornings we watched the birds from the back patio. The location is great - out in the desert, but nearby to public necessities. One of the best vacation rentals I've stayed in.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews were correct, Carella provides nearly everything needed. Having the basics already stocked was so very nice, like dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo and toilet paper, all the appliances functioning well.

The cooler came in very handy as we were there during quite the heat wave, we enjoyed the pool daily. The birds and bunnies were a delight watching from the back porch, Carella kept the bird feeders full and we were happy to add water to the bird baths.

The house is clean and tidy, and it's not an exaggeration, the office and home are stocked full of maps, guide books, magazines, etc. for all the things to do locally. We left a few ourselves. There are movies, games and books for everyone, it was so very nice to have so many things at our fingertips! Not to mention freshly ironed bed linens.

The only unexpected thing that we are not fans of is the skylight in the master bedroom, not easy to sleep past sunrise with it. Also, not a fan of no bathroom door in the master. The skylights in general though are amazing, they provide so much bright light without using electricity.

The three of us were very comfortable in the home, we recommend it.

A bit pricy but you get what you pay for - and this place is quite nice

  • 4 of 5

The house feels bigger than the stated square footage. Kitchen is completely stocked with anything one could need. The home is tastefully and nicely decorated (except for the creepy Indian!). The TV has Netflix and Hulu. There are pool toys to use in the very nice and very private pool. We were there when the cacti were still blooming and the javelinas and humming birds visited daily. Really like staying here!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was high quality. The owner was attentive but not over invasive. When emailed regarding questions, she responded in a timely manner.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not a wordy guy, and you can be sure that all was most wonderful if I am not mentioning any negatives and I am awarding 5-stars. It is a large guest house and is well-appointed and up-to-date. Your host is very pleasant and helpful. We didn't use the pool (too busy!) but it looked very nice. We were there to bird, and there were many hummingbirds and non, at the many feeders. It is well stocked with books and local information. And Quiet, as we wanted, yet a 3 min drive to shopping and the Interstate. Enjoy!

Car: necessary

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.
