"My family really enjoyed staying at this condo. Our trip was over March 28-April 5 2015 and while intended to be mostly vacation it was also part business as we took care of some family business for my mother-in-law. The location was about 10-15 minutes from mother-in-law so that made that aspect of the trip that much easier.
We scheduled this at the last minute and fortunately the owners were able to work with us to allow for a 1 week rental. They stayed in contact with us during our travel to Tucson and upon arrival so we were able to meet in a timely manner. They were flexible and communicated well.
The property itself is nicely done. The kitchen was updated and had all the needed items for cooking, etc., even though we ate out a fair amount. The rooms were spacious and the beds very good. The condo property has a heated pool and we were able to get in several times - the kids had a blast as we did some of our regular pool games. We also made it over to Sabino Canyon (very short drive - but you can walk or bike there we just were short on time) for a couple of hikes. My wife enjoyed mornings out the patio area. There's lots of restaurants and things to do in the vicinity.
The family walked a short distance up to the Ventana Canyon Golf and Racquet Club - there is a fitness trail with exercise stations that runs along the golf course property. We did the fitness trail all the way up to the start - it was a real blast!
We ran into one unexpected interruption - the first night the owner turned on the AC to run. It ran continuously all night but never seemed to drop to the set temperature. It was not super hot yet so it did not overly concern me and our family was not bothered by the temp, but I decided to keep an eye on it. That same morning/day it continued to run without ever lowering to the preset temperature. I decided to call and let the owner know that there might some kind of issue. He had someone come over immediately to determine what might be happening - the AC was not functioning as it should be and needed to be addressed/replaced. He brought in a portable swamp cooler to help keep things cool and we ran the ceiling fans and opened the windows at night. While the AC was not fixed during our stay the owner was very conscious of it, showed empathy, and communicated with us frequently throughout the stay. He also made a nice gesture to accommodate this unanticipated occurrence. Great stay at a great place with great owner."

"What an amazing stay! I brought Chinese colleagues here to experience my 'old home'. I came from Tucson 35 years ago. The beautiful desert has not changed, so timeless. The Sunset house, unobtrusively nestled into that desert. The feel of the home leaves you at one with the desert. The floor plan allowed each person to have their own room and private bath. Loved the courtyard in the middle. My room had a private outside entrance so I could go out unnoticed to enjoy the hot tub..yes, in the early mornings, sun rise, quail calling, beautiful sky! The kitchen, fully outfitted. I would return to find my colleagues had prepared traditional Chinese breakfast. They too felt the peacefulness of home, the connection to simpler times and the happy family eating around the big dining table. We had full moon, night walks, constant picture taking. Constant amazement over how beautiful, how pristine, magically quiet. So thorough was this stay for filling my need for home, and my guests' need for quiet beauty, that we all, for all our own reasons, were reluctant to leave. Many thank you's, Karen, for sharing your home with us. Yes, I will return."

"A wonderful stay! Dee and Tom are the best hosts. They are extremely personable and helpful. Casita Llanura is a very comfortable spot with great access to the city, as well as hiking and road biking. The wildlife and view make it special. Looking forward to returning soon."

"We rented this grand home for just over a week to attend a family wedding. The house is exactly as described, expansive, well equipped, very clean and nicely decorated. The view from the kitchen window is stunning. Our family made frequent and daily use of the pool and hot tub. The house accommodated a post wedding family BBQ very nicely. Booking the house went very smoothly, Evelyn and Marc are very responsive. On arrival, Marc came by and explained the intricacies of the house to us, he was very pleasant and not in the least intrusive. The air-conditioning was a perfect temperature and we never heard the neighbors. The views of the mountains are breath taking, the landscaping nicely cared for. There is a very pleasant sitting area out front where we had our morning coffee or afternoon tea. The kitchen has everything you could possible want. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were very sad to leave. As mentioned by another reviewer, this house is truly a dream house which we hope we can return to next year. It's a perfect spot for a family vacation. Simply bring your bathing suit and enjoy!"
