You'll find Starr Pass glowing in the warm sun light (and moon light) nestled in the Tucson Mountains. Gaze at the city lights, under the brilliant Tucson stars (an astronomical world class location) and view the cityscape from just the right point of view.
A few minutes from the Tucson Airport, take a left at Starr Pass Blvd and head toward the Tucson mountains - you'll find yourself and your companions in an oasis unmatched. The Starr Pass 27 hole Arnold Palmer Golf Course is one of the best in the world. Each hole has stunning desert scenery. Our guests frequently enjoy golf and many times we can recommend golf discounts.
Guests, please always Inquire, even if calendar shows booked. Owner has calendar and can also refer your party next door and nearby. ' The Owl Casita knows' the best places to stay;)
There is only one place like this in the world.
The bedrooms at the casita are inviting, private and comfortable. The main bedroom is on the right of the property. It has a king bed, bath with tub and shower, flat screen television, window with wood shutters.
The second bedroom is situated on the other side of the casita, on the left, with its own entrance, bath, mini fridge, micro, sink, staples ,flat screen, writing table, window with wood shutters.
in between the two bedrooms is the spacious living room, fireplace, full kitchen, outdoor patio and laundry room off kitchen.
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!
We have a guest book in the casita with suggestions for your visit, guest comments and suggestions. Please keep track of your favorite spots during your visit and let us know what you love! We do the same thing, write down anything we believe you may love about Tucson or Starr Pass.
Starr Pass Owl Casita is the most well positioned casita -- the most sought after casita in Starr Pass.

Year Purchased: 2000
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. Starr Pass is considered by many as 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, a short walk to restaurants, and nightlife. 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 to return to again and again.
