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!!!!

WOW, WONDERFUL, WAY better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for a wonderful week in Tucson. FUN, FUN, and QUITE neighborhood near the University. Home was well supplied with all we needed and more. Lillian even bought a slow cooker for us so we could come home from a day exploring and have a hot dinner ready. Parking was easy and safe, with good access to home. Kitchen had everything you needed and was easy to cook in. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were updated and and large sink and lighting were great. Our hosts treated us like family and even had fruit and snacks when we arrived! Only problem was we did NOT want to leave! WE made great Thanksgiving Memories and will come back again.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We found Casa Bella the perfect place to stay while attending our grandson's high school graduation. The house is well appointed, but unpretentious and we felt at home right away. The southwest landscaping blends into the historic neighborhood and being history buffs, we enjoyed walking around and looking at the varied architecture. During our stay, there was not one item that we wished for that we did not find in a drawer or tucked away in a cabinet. We like to cook and this was especially true of the kitchen. We used the quiet and ample backyard for a family picnic one afternoon and Lillian kindly brought over extra lawn chairs to accommodate us. The front patio is a great place for breakfast as well. We give this clean and well located rental a high five!

Relaxing home and wonderful neighborhood for walks

  • 5 of 5

Lillian was able to work with us on very short notice and we very much appreciate that, it saved our vacation! We enjoyed the house very much, especially mornings with coffee spent listening to the birds on either the front or back patio. It was well stocked and we found everything we needed. It was clean and the (platform) beds were very comfortable. The off street, covered parking was convenient and secure. I am a very light sleeper so I did find the air conditioning unit outside the bedroom to be loud so we swapped rooms and all was well. Air conditioner worked well and kept us cooled. The neighborhood was wonderful to walk in and it was a very short walk (about a block and a half, 3 minutes) to a large park. We would definitely stay there again!
