Great place - wonderful setting - access to many activities
"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."

"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."

Secret Gem - I Almost Don't Want to Leave a Review!
"This rental was truly a great find - I almost don't want to recommend it so it stays more of a secret. ;-)
This one-level house was just perfect for me, my hubby, our 4-legged critters, and our friends. You can easily host 8+ people at this rental without a problem and there's ample parking! The rooms were spacious, the bathrooms were stocked with plenty of toiletries and towels, and the covered back porch offered some really beautiful views and outside seating. Not to mention - it was incredibly quiet and secluded-feeling, which is a huge plus for us! :-) There are also some little trails on the property that are maintained well (dirt-packed) if you want to take a little stroll.
Like another reviewer mentioned - don't be deterred by the lack of an oven. There's a grocery store within about 10 minutes and it was easy enough to buy microwavable breakfast items and great fresh fruit. There is also a good-sized grill on the back porch - perfect for lunches and dinners. There's also plenty of dishes and silverware.
Bottom line: WE LOVED IT and it has definitely become our #1 go-to rental in Tucson."

"My family just spent the last three weeks in Tucson at the Casa Indigo property and loved it. Dave, who is the new owner of the property, is a real pleasure to deal with. He was very quick to respond to my initial inquiries about the house as well as responding to all my follow up emails. The kitchen is very well stocked and spacious layout is really nice for relaxing in the evening after a long day of business. The location was very important to us, close to the freeway, near a grocery store and centrally located to town. The house is up on a rise which gives you a great view of the town lights at night and a spectacular Sunrise in the morning. Thanks for the enjoyable stay Dave, hope to see you next year!"
