"Casa Encantada is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting with a great location. Thank you, Gary, for sharing. We spent ten days there the end of April/beginning of May this year. The house itself is a marvelous classic adobe-style house dressed up with Barragan-inspired interior colors, a phantasmagorical mosaic in the bathroom and an extensive collection of wooden, clay and etc. figures, creatures and critters scattered throughout. The setting is lovely, the surrounding desert a superb mix of native plants with Sombrero Peak looming in the distance. We were lucky enough to be there when the Palo Verde were in bloom, so both the area around the house and the flanks of the mountains in the distance to the west and south were covered with their yellow blooms -- a truly marvelous time to be there. Of course we were in the hot tub every afternoon following busy days doing this and that. The kitchen was wonderful for cooking (with every pot, pan and gadget you could wish for), which we did every night but one with provisions from Food City, our favorite market. The master bedroom was comfortable and the living room perfect for evening reading (lounging and stretch-out space, well lit). All in all, a perfectly marvelous place to recover from an active day and spend a restful evening. We recommend Casa Encantada without reservation and look forward to returning."

"We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! The house accommodated 4 households--7 adults and 6 kids ages 1-13--plus extra adults at dinner time. We all had plenty of space and privacy when we needed it, plus lots of gathering space as well. The neighborhood is quiet yet conveniently located. The house was spotless and well-equipped. The views are breathtaking--wake up in time to watch the sun rise; you won't regret it. The price was also much better than other properties we considered as well. We highly recommend it!"

"We had the opportunity to spend three and a half months renting at the house in Tucson, AZ and cannot say enough about how beautiful the terrain was outside the windows. Seeing the stunning southern Arizona sunsets, then the star illumination of the dark sky followed by the sunrises over the Tucson Mountains was an experience we'll not forget. Desert creatures visited each day and night, and it was delightful to be so close to the land. The house was appointed with everything one might need to live in a home-like setting while on holiday and is quite comfortable."

"My wife and I and our 18 month old son stayed at the Casita for a week this past December and enjoyed it immensely. The Casita was spacious and private, with gorgeous desert views, visiting wildlife, a comfortable hot tub and hiking near by. We spent the days hiking, enjoyed the desert museum and several local restaurants. Often we would cook and eat at home, enjoying the sunsets over a glass of wine. I can confirm that the charcoal grill works fine as we spent an afternoon smoking ribs and watching college football. The owners graciously provided a pack-and-play for our son--they live next door and were readily available by phone. It was a peaceful and private place to relax for our family, we can recommend it without reservation."
