Secret Gem - I Almost Don't Want to Leave a Review!
"This rental was truly a great find - I almost don't want to recommend it so it stays more of a secret. ;-)
This one-level house was just perfect for me, my hubby, our 4-legged critters, and our friends. You can easily host 8+ people at this rental without a problem and there's ample parking! The rooms were spacious, the bathrooms were stocked with plenty of toiletries and towels, and the covered back porch offered some really beautiful views and outside seating. Not to mention - it was incredibly quiet and secluded-feeling, which is a huge plus for us! :-) There are also some little trails on the property that are maintained well (dirt-packed) if you want to take a little stroll.
Like another reviewer mentioned - don't be deterred by the lack of an oven. There's a grocery store within about 10 minutes and it was easy enough to buy microwavable breakfast items and great fresh fruit. There is also a good-sized grill on the back porch - perfect for lunches and dinners. There's also plenty of dishes and silverware.
Bottom line: WE LOVED IT and it has definitely become our #1 go-to rental in Tucson."

"Casa Amapola was a great house for the five of us who gathered there from three states for a weeklong family Christmas celebration – as well as the two of us who stayed on for another couple of weeks to enjoy its tranquility at the edge of the desert. The owners have created an exciting and at the same time comfortable space inside and out with their intriguing art objects throughout the house and the lovely cactus garden in a private poolside patio area behind it. Our dog enjoyed spending much of his days in that enclosed area – and so did we, especially because of the dramatic view it offered of the mountains. While the quiet neighborhood is so far out toward the desert that we spotted coyotes and a family of javelinas, its closeness to the interstate allowed us to quickly be in the center of Tucson – a great combination."

"This house is in a convenient, lovely area and is very comfortable, very clean and inviting. The pool and pool area are very nice and relaxing. Mike had all we needed and more - dishes, towels, condiments, even a coffee grinder! Oh, and there were lots of books. Didn't watch the videos, but enough channels on tv. Mike was easily accessible when I had a few questions (no problems at all - just couldn't find the portacrib which was in the closet, and asked if we could check in earlier). He even gave us a good recommendation for seafood that was close by. We all (husband, adult children and 20 month old granddaughter) were very comfortable and so glad we stayed here. I would highly recommend this house. Thank you, Mike! If we are in Tucson again, we hope your home will be available."
