"We loved staying in this nice quiet community and beautiful home. The beds were all comfortable and we loved spending the afternoons in the pool. The putting competitions we had with each other were an added bonus. The house was very clean and well taken care of and it was nice to have a contact in Tucson to address any questions we had. Thank you Andrea for such a great holiday home! If we come back to Tucson, we will be contacting you again."

"This property was excellent. The house, the pool, the location on a hill overlooking the desert in the near view and the city lights in the distance, provided our most relaxing vacation in a long time.
The proximity to the Catalina and Rincon mountains provide the perfect location to experience summer monsoons. At the same time, we were close enough to all of the things we needed to do. There is easy access to the U of A campus as well as downtown. We have friends on the northeast side of town and had no trouble with the drive to see them. Grocery stores, shopping and restaurants are nearby. This really was the best of all worlds.
The owner provided excellent customer service. We would highly recommend this property without hesitation."

"LOVED this casita!! Brought my mom here in April 2014 because due to her health issues, I needed a two bedroom place. This casita was just what the dr ordered!! Mom and I each had our own rooms and bathrooms, and saved a lot of money fixing our breakfasts and a few meals in the cute kitchen. We popped popcorn in the microwave and stored the yummy Chocolate Therapy ice cream we discovered at Albertsons - in the freezer for our evening snacks! We live in a very windy area of California, so mom LOVED sitting out on the patio - so peaceful and quiet - with a GREAT view. Each day we looked for the javelinas to visit us, but only caught a glimpse of one as we drove up to the casita one night. Mom still teases me that she doesn't believe they exist and that I'm making them up! The older I get, the more I want some peacefulness in my life - and this casita is a piece of heaven for me.
I loved it so much that my husband and I rented several days this Oct 2014 - another awesome stay! Love taking walks around the area, and the pool is really nice. Is a great base camp to branch out from to do daytrips and other activities. We plan on returning to see Tubac, taking some good hikes right nearby, seeing the butterfly exhibit at the zoo, eating at North restaurant at La Encantada mall (try to crispy potatoes there - yummmmm), and of course seeing the USC/U of Ariz football game every two years (hubby is a USC alumni).
Am bringing mom and my sister back here in Apr 2015 so that my sister can take a glass blowing class at the Sonoran Glass School - they have a lot of artistic opportunities here - just a lot of neat things to explore in this town!
Janet is a great owner - she is great at communicating - and is very willing to accomodate any special requests. I was concerned mom would slip in the shower w/o a bathmat (many hotels don't provide these) - but Janet made sure I had one for mom. Also got extra towels :) The casita has a lot of things you need - spices, olive & canola oil, salad dressings, condiments, napkins, basically everything short of the food you'd want to fix yourselves. Very convenient. What I love about it is that you don't really HAVE to go out anywhere - is so peaceful and wonderful just hanging out at the casita, that is nice to just be there. How many vacation spots can you say that about?
Am dreaming I can own my own casita someday :)"

"This is our third visit to Starr Pass and we really enjoyed this casita. It is comfortable and bright with a fully equipped kitchen. I found maps, information and reading material to be a bonus. We loved to sit on the patio and watch the hummingbirds visit the bougainvillea. Ellen really is a great landlady! We had to change our dates due to a family illness and she was very understanding. There is golf, hiking, pool and fitness centre close at hand. We cooked some of our meals and we enjoyed visiting the Marriott hotel to dine or have a drink. We would certainly like to return in the future perhaps with family or friends as there is an adjoining guest room."
