great value, quiet place yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a week over New Years. What a great value compared to similarly priced hotels. It was great to have a washer/dryer inside the unit. The kitchen was fabulous, stocked with all utensils, spices, some things were higher quality than we have at home. Convenient layout, outdoor deck for viewing the sunset, and only a walk to a very nice bike path along the Rillito River. Trader Joes just a minute away, Tucson mall 5 minutes away yet very quiet, even on New Year's Eve. The unit was very clean and well maintained. We would recommend this unit to anyone.

Serene retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place for either the vacationer or business professional who does not want the hectic environment of hotels and needs a few of the conveniences of home. This is a comfortable, clean place, as luxurious as most good hotels but with all of the conveniences of home. Very comfortable beds, high quality linens, kitchen supplies, etc. Steve and Lynn have provided so many little things that you need such as laundry soap, body wash, condiments, extra pillows, ironing board, hair dryer, etc. the list goes on. Just bring your clothes and food and you are set. I stayed here with a colleague as we were in town for a week during doctoral studies and we needed quiet, convenience to the U, and high speed internet access. We also enjoyed walking on the River walk since we did not have time to do any other activities while in town. Steve and Lynn are very easy to work with and everything met or exceeded our expectations. I am a frequent user of home away properties and this one was right up there with the very best.

If you are a U of A student/family just remember that you have to travel off peak to make the left turn out of the complex to get going west (I recommend going early or late, not at rush hour), and of course you have to have a car. Use Mountain instead of Campbell to reduce traffic hassles.

Great condo + great owners = great time in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

We found this place by accident and were we ever surprised. The owners were very professional and the place was outstanding. Lots of little things that made this place so special, lots of dishes and linen, even supplied detergent for disches, laundry and some condiments. The place was clean and very well maintained. It was a little too cold for the pool and hot tub, but they looked nice and I'm sure would be great in the summer.

The owners even sent a list of local attractions and some restaurants in the area and gave excellent directions to find their place.

The bed, linen and pillows were very comfortable and the TV was excellent.

Overall, we were really pleased and would recommend it highly ( note we were debating about telling everyone how great this place is, for fear that it won't be available for our next visit to Tucson)

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! The condo was beautiful, as promised. We really liked the location - right on the bike trail, walk to Trader Joe's, a great Sunday farmer's market next door, close to Sabino canyon with wonderful hiking, and not far from the U of Arizona where we went to a play. The owners, Steve and Lynn, were very helpful with ideas for dining and anything we needed and also checked with us to make sure things were going well. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Tucson.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Condo as we were looking for a place to stay when visiting family in Tucson. The Condo is really well appointed and everything is of high quality. We found the photos and description of the Condo very accurate. The property was very clean, well maintained and is located in an area convenient for a good choice of shops and restaurants. The apartment complex is quiet with plenty of parking and has a nice pool and areas to walk behind the apartment. The owner Steve kept in touch by email after we had booked and sent me directions and some really helpful area info before we visited. Steve also called me after we had arrived to make sure everything was okay during our visit which I thought was a nice touch. We visit the USA on holiday each year and found this to be one of the best Condos we have rented and would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
