OLD FRIENDS are the BEST FRIENDS is our motto ;) We love our return guests and we have a lot of them. Most of our calendar is filled with return guests! We love to return the favor: for those guests who leave the Owl casita in pristine shape, return again and email us a good email review, we offer special consdieration for scheduling and special 5 Starr Owl rates. Some guests have us holdover their deposits if they are new and would like to return, so on their request if they know they want to return soon, we hold that for them and schedule their next visits. We don't even need a deposit for guests who we have a long history with us.
We have the best managers on site, we repair everything that comes to our attention, so we ask guests to let the owner and manger know when something needs any attention. We also work very hard to keep costs down so that you can enjoy a great place to stay away from home at a great rate!

Places To See
We are enjoying our stay here at the Owl casita, and are very comfortable and pleased. Have driven to the top of Mount Lemmon, spent a day in Tubac, gone to the Tucson Musem of Art. Tomorrow we will attend Our Savior's Lutheran and then drive to Degrazia's Gallery in the Sun. I have been there before and loved it, and want My husband to see it. Think we will check out Tanque Verde too; My husband grew up on a ranch in Canada and we are both horse lovers. I have always heard about Tanque Verde from families who have stayed there. Have you been to Bisbee and Tombstone? I thought they sounded interesting for a day trip. Thank you for giving us a nice place to stay. The Owl casita is perfect!

ENJOYING!Guest comment entered by owner
We have been here one week now, and the fun continues! I did buy some birdseed, and we have had an array of guests at the bird feeders. A pair of cardinals, cactus wrens, purple finch, many quail, and the occasional roadrunner. Lots of fun to watch them appear at different times of the day. The weather is great! We drove to the top of Mount Lemmon two days ago, and today we spent the day at Tubac, golfing and shopping. The Owl casita is very comfortable, the beds are great, the internet is faster than what we have at home, and we enjoy the beautiful grounds and views at The JW. Tomorrow is spa day at Hasani, and because we have platinum elite Marriott cards, we can use the spa whenever we want for free...how nice is that? We are finding our way around town, have visited Old Town artisans and also the art museum. Lots to see and do here, and our son and our daughter plus her newest baby (youngest of her four and only six months old) are coming to visit us on at the end of the month. I think they would enjoy the Desert Museum and also Biosphere. Thank you for sharing this happy place with us!

Most nicely decorated, cleanest & most luxurious
Dear Pamela, We just arrived at The Owl and upon entering, we were all very impressed. This is our 4th VRBO rental and your casita is, by far, the most nicely decorated, cleanest and most luxurious rental we have stayed in. We arrived with pouring rain, thunder and lightening. We love it!! It smells so fresh outside. We are sitting in the living room, now, with the sliding door open, looking out over the golf course and watching the sky. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. Best regards, Elizabeth Hello Elizabeth, It's so nice to hear from you. I am so happy you are comfortable at the Owl Casita. We share your good experiences with VRBO. And I have had the best guests in the world at the Owl Casita, I cannot tell you how rewarding and fun it is to share the Owl Casita and hear from wonderful guests like you. When the rain stops, you may very well notice a plethora of wildlife, especially birds and bunnies, possible mule deer etc etc. Have a wonderful trip, all the best moving your student into the U of A. Warm Regards and Welcome, Pamela Owl Casita

Pamela My wife and I love your place so much we hope to rent it every year. Please put me down for Feb 3-10, 2014 if it's available If you like you can put our security deposit down to hold it. Please et me know. We liked how clean the Owl Casita is, the comfort of the beds, the size of the unit, newer TVs, internet that worked, how close to the club house. Did you get us booked for 2014 yet? Hello David, I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed the Owl Casita. I would love to hear what you loved.. anything about the casita or the area or anything. If you found any great restaurants and anything else.. I will also look at the 2014 calendar and the week you are seeking.. Thank you so much for the nice comments.

Thank you again. We would love the opportunity to return again soon. Marianne Dear Marianne, Thank you for the message that you are back home safe and sound! We want to thank you for being such lovely guests! We are rewarded to know the Owl casita was a good "home away from home" that provided you, your family and friends an opportunity to enjoy yourselves! We all need more time for such pursuits and we are so happy you were able to stay at the Owl casita and enjoy life! Thank you for starting the housekeeping, we so appreciate guests who appreciate the house. Our calendar is full of return guests like you, and that is how we love it! We value guests like you more than words can say! Hope to hear from you soon, Kindest Regards! Pamela Pamela, Thank you so much! We are home from our trip to Tucson and what a wonderful time we had visiting with family and friends. The Owl Casita was delightful! Perfect accommodations for our stay. Close to everything we wanted to do and see. We started the laundry of linens, cleaned out the refrigerator and emptied all the trash. Hope you happy with the head start we gave on the clean up. Thank you again...Marianne

The Sooner the Better!
Hello Pamela, The Casita was wonderful as usual. We really enjoyed it again! We really saw a lot of different animals this time. Coyote, mule deer, rabbits, road runners, baby quail, and finally the javelinas, which was the first time for those. We have been home for a week now, but we would love to be in Tucson instead. We met Emelia and Paul, they are the sweetest people, I felt like we've known them forever. We just love it there! We would recommend the Owl Casita any time. We will definitely be back, the sooner the better. Thanks again Pamela and we hope you have a wonderful summer!

Another wonderful vacation at the Owl Casita!
Another wonderful vacation at the Owl Casita!
This is our 3rd time back to Owl Casita...it is like coming home. I sleep better here than anywhere else I can remember...I love to leave the windows open at night to let in the night air and hear the night sounds. The beds are unbelievably comfortable and am going to find out where the mattress came from so I can get one at home! There were a few changes this year, striking new bedding and paint. As always, we seem to settle right in and get into our Starr Pass routine of early morning coffee and then a glorious walk...then off to the pool before it gets too warm. Just floating in the silent water with a hawk circling overhead is something one can not really describe. This time we explored a little bit more via the Marriot Resort...they offer early morning guided nature hikes that are not too difficult and our guide taught us so much interesting information about the cactus and birds of the region. We are from the Pacific Northwest so it is all so very different. We look forward to our 4th visit next year. Oh! We had fun exploring the other side of the Valley this year too...over in the LaPaloma area, and absolutely go visit the Air Museum...wow. Thanks again for a restorative week.

Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, people with disabilities, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, families with teenagers.
Owner response: Dear Nancy, you and your party are welcome back to the Owl casita any time. Many of our guests are return guests who take good care of the casita, and we are so appreciative of that! The saline (no chlorine) pool at the Marriott day spa swimming pool is my favority spot to really rest. We too love our time there floating and swimming, it is so quiet and serene and the wildlife is just spectacular, the main reason we narrowed it down to owl casita is the open space between the homes and the Marriott at Starr Pass, allowing wildlife to live freely and happily. As well as the location of the Starr Pass resort area, near the airport, U of A, downtown. We look forward to your return visit, just let us know when and we'll leave the light on. ;)
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!
The Owl Casita was the perfect place to stay in Tucson. The rooms were very roomy and very comfortable! We came here to relax, and we were able to do just that. Quiet, serene, and so very peaceful. A much needed time away from our busy life. The wildlife that we saw from the back patio of the Owl Casita was so special and memorable. Birds chirping, and such a peaceful setting we had trouble leaving. Once we did adventure out into Tuscon, the area is perfect for shopping and wonderful restaurants to enjoy every day of the week. Of course if you prefer to prepare dinner at home, Owl Casita had a wonderful kitchen to have family time and prepare meals at home as well. This area is great for sight seeing as well as endless shopping. We are hoping to make a special trip back just for Christmas shopping 2012! The beds so comfy and loved the floor plan of the Casita, it invites family together time, as well as provides privacy when nightime falls. Beautiful walking trails and paths and a super great pool to enjoy as well. Its a must go property and we cant wait to get back!

Owner response: Thank you Paula for choosing to stay at the Owl Casita in Starr Pass. We would love to have your party return in December. Most all of our guests are now return guests who find the Owl Casita just right for vacations, work, conventions, sports activities, visiting students at U of A, nature watching, peace and solitude to name a few of the reasons guests tell us they come back. We recently added flat screen televisions and upgraded lots of other favorite items at the casia. Thank you to all our guests who make the Owl casita their home away from home. We appreciate your kind words. Starr The Owl has been known to reciprocate a 5 starr review by offering a complimentary evening for return guests, particularly those with a seven night reservation and who offer such lovely reviews. We appreciate you for the way you left the casita in such beautiful condition and for being such wonderful guests. Once again, we are here to make your trip enjoyable. If you ever need anything, please let us know by phone directly and enjoy those roadrunners and quail. We do! Thank you again.

About the owner: We are University of Arizona Wildcat graduates who could never fully leave the Old Pueblo. We loved it so much that 20 years later we searched for and found Starr Pass Owl Casita to enjoy ourselves and share with our amazing guests from all around the country and the world.
Why the Owner Chose Starr Pass:
We chose to purchase the Starr Pass casita for the location, near the U of A. Its also an end unit in the center of the development, with front door parking and the best view of all the casitas; across the Road Runner golf course.. toward the Tucson Mountains and the best view of the 5 starr Marriott / fireworks etc. Starr Pass is the best of all the resorts in Tucson for its location to I-10, the airport, downtown, the U of A, etc. An open park wildlife reserve, Starr Pass is rich in beauty and scenic desert terrain, in a community with great admiration for the natural world, the amazing Arnold Palmer golf course, the open air mountain bike park, the five starr Marriott being in our back yard, the shuttle up and back to the casita from the Marriott. The view of the Old Pueblo from this vantage point is unsurpassed. We visited and stayed at all the developments and resorts in the Old Pueblo and came back to Starr Pass. There is something special about this desert oasis. This is a place we never want to leave.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There are many benefits: SUNSHINE STARS and SUNSETS!! Also, free parking, free wifi, great upgraded beds, a fully equipped casita, free shuttle up to the Marriott, guided Marriott hikes, world class golf and Marriott spa, amazing restaurants like Catalina BBQ, Primo, Salud right on the property, outdoor bars, swimming, outdoor firepits up at the Marriott, comfy couches, star gazing, breathtaking sunsets, plentiful wildlife; rabbits, mule deers, roadrunners, quail, and birds galore. A taste of living in the wonderful southwest Old Pueblo.
