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!

Great stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Difficult to describe an almost perfect rental, but without nit picking, our stay at this casita came very close to being that rental. It was perfect for two and would be comfortable for four. Communication with Carella was both easy and prompt. The casita was extremely clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Bed large and comfortable. Living area was small but very comfortable and with Netflix, no lack of evening entertainment.

We loved the location. While convenient to Tucson and surrounding area, it was quiet and you felt removed from the hustle of urban living. The patio was nice; one looked out at a desert landscape. We observed a lot of different bird species and had the opportunity to watch a bobcat and her kitten move around the area. Due to time of year we were unable to take advantage of the pool, but it looked inviting and was convenient to the casita. On return to Tucson, we would look no further for our rental.

Would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Carella's Casita. The house is light and airy, beautifully decorated and everything we needed was provided. Although the property is located next to Carella's home it was very private. The back yard is lovely and very peaceful. We enjoyed watching birds and looking at the Catalina Mountains. We had no problem getting around Tucson as the highway is easily accessible. The Loop trail is close by and great for walking, jogging or biking. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
