terrific place and host

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we chose this place! Far exceeded my expectations. Best VRBO/AirBnB-type place I've ever rented. Host was nice and left considerate snacks and instructions. House was perfect. Location ideal.

Wonderful time in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Bella. It was everything we expected, and more. It is a great location, easy to get around and see the sights. The home is super clean and stocked with things that are needed, but often forgotten.... foil and saran wrap for our sandwiches that were taken on our hikes, spices, detergent...simple items that made our stay even better. The basket of goodies was a wonderful touch. Thank you so much for making our holiday trip to Tucson so wonderful. I would recommend Casa Bella to anyone.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Lillian and Henry's place. The house is immaculate and had everything we needed. Beds and couches were comfortable. Kitchen and dining room were well set up for cooking family dinners. Beautiful front and back patio for sitting in shade or sun. Great neighborhood, lots of off-street parking. We stayed with our two young adult daughters - everyone loved the house.

GREAT in every way

  • 5 of 5

Your home was perfect for a Thanksgiving celebration with family and friends from out of state; invitingly bright, very clean and comfy with great outdoor spaces for the little ones, and big ones also. Very well equipped kitchen for those who like to cook, or even outdoor grill.

I would recommend your home and it’s great quiet convenient location

It was great

cute, comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Everything our family of five could need, and very conveniently located for the University and downtown attractions. Peaceful and quiet- I often have trouble sleeping when we travel because of noise, which is part of why I prefer rentals to hotels, but we've had noisy rentals, too. But no trouble here!

We were staying here while we were house hunting and preparing to relocate to Tucson, and we will definitely recommend this place to friends and family when they come to visit.

Our family stayed at this wonderful Sam Hughes home for my graduation from UA in May 2016 and it was absolutely perfect!!! There was plenty of room for my husband and me, and our two teenagers. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious even though the house is not necessarily large. We were even able to entertain my grad school friend and her family for an evening with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and visit. We really enjoyed relaxing on both the front and back patios, and walking around Sam Hughes (which is beautiful, felt safe, close to a park and shops). The yard is beautifully landscaped and peaceful. The home was a perfect location to get to UA for graduation ceremonies and experience Tuscson. The private, off-street, covered parking was a giant plus!!. Our host was wonderful and accomodating in every way. I would definitely rent this home again. What more can I say? It was absolutely PERFECT!!!!
