"The home was in a really convenient neighborhood. It is close to downtown Tucson, Saguaro West National Park, the Desert Museum, the freeway and good eating spots. It was very spacious.vews from the big deck were great in several directions. The kitchen was well equipped and roomy. It was very nice of the owners to allow us to park our car in the garage under the rental. They were accommodating whenever we had issues. We thought that there were a couple of things that needed updating: the master bed was very soft, hard to get in and out of and high for 70+ year olds, the front door from the deck needed a new lock, the barbeque did not work very well even after the owner worked on it. Nevertheless, the home was a fun location for the 4 of us from Minnesota. It was fun watching the coyotes from the deck walk up and down the road!"

"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!"

"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 really enjoyed our month-long stay at this handsome hacienda and can't wait until our next visit. Well situated near the city of Tucson- you feel like you're in the middle of the desert- very quiet except for the calling coyotes, hooting owls and singing birds. And even though the very nice owners live next door, they left us alone and we never saw them except when we asked for help regarding things that had nothing to do with the house. Speaking of which, the cozy hacienda is tastefully decorated and furnished with all of the essential amenities and very clean. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the patio on the east side of the house overlooking a wash that provided great views of the Santa Catalina and Rincon mountains as well as sitting on the west side for the sunset over the Tucson Mountains. Simply put, this is a great place maintained by great people."
