"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."

"Only one word can define our stay here: PERFECT. Cynthia provided a beautiful location to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in sheer beauty and tranquility. The colors displayed by the natural setting of the desert are not exaggerated and are visible daily, with amazing sun rises and sets, thunderstorms with rainbows and glowing stars at night. The charming luminosa house has every detail guests need to feel beyond comfortable. Exceptionally clean and furnished with everything to make our stay complete and carefree (e.g. fantastic reading material on the Saguaro desert, pool towels, wonderfully homemade bath soap, and spices for cooking). Guests can easily unwind and enjoy birdwatching, water color painting, reading, meditation and eating with family/friends on the porch of the casita (which we loved doing everyday). Our young daughter enjoyed looking at the wildlife and drew multiple pictures of cacti, while identifying different kinds of animals she saw with books provided in the house.
Without any hesitation, we would return again and hope to do so again in the near future. Thank you Cynthia for your kindness, hospitality and making our anniversary a truly magical experience."

"We've stayed at many VRBOs, in terrific locations, but this Casita in Tucson is the best. The Casita itself is beautifully appointed, and roomy, but it's the (private) patio and gardens that take the experience over the top. We came to Tucson for a "home base" for some birdwatching. Little did we know that the birding at the Casita would rival anything we found elsewhere -- Karen has birdfeeders up in numerous locations. We saw gila and ladder-backed woodpeckers, Costa's and broad-billed hummers, verdin, curve-billed thrasher, mourning doves, Gambel's quail and many more -- all in our bathrobes on the patio. Never before had we heard of bathrobe birding!! Jim and Karen are terrific hosts, we had great talks on their deck during happy hour. Treat yourselves to a stay at the Casita!!"
