Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were planning my dad's 80th birthday and decided to have a party central house for those of us coming from out of town. We found this place and it ended up being perfect for our needs. The owners were extremely accommodating helping us with extra tables and chairs for our small party. The area and the property we're perfect. The setup of the house worked well for those that we're staying there.

If the need arises we will definitely stay there again.

perfect AZ escape

  • 5 of 5

Terrific place. Wonderful house with good south west vibes and horse decor. Property and owners are lovely and property is adjacent to the stunning Saguaro National Park. Stayed here for just a few days with our 2-year old son. Very family friendly. Only drawback was not having a stove top or full kitchen, but there is a grill, coffeepot, sink, dishes and great southwest takeout locations in short driving distance. hope to stay longer next time.

Very comfortable and great Tucson location

  • 5 of 5

Again, another great stay at The Rocking M Ranch. Lou and Pam are such gracious hosts and we love the guest house for our Tucson stay. There is plenty of room for our large family and friends. There is also camping site available which accommodates our friends with campers. We love the peacefulness out in this NW Tucson desert location near Saguaro National Monument and even had an extra treat this trip with the full moon eclipse. With the darkness around us, a great location to see this event. Thank you again, Lou and Pam for another wonderful stay.

National Monument Gem

10 of us had the pleasure to stay for several days and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. The home is very comfortable, with beds and bedding equal to the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The sun warmed us in the morning , shining into the front courtyard which made morning coffee times, enjoyable. Later in the day, the back porch was completely shaded and made for a nice quiet place to sit and read.

Wildlife abounds from the park, which lies just behind this home. Daily, we heard or saw, coyotes, javelina and multiple bird types including a young owl who perched inside the courtyard on our first night there.

The owner, Mr Mindes , was present on the property but not intrusive in any way. He was quite friendly ,personable and could be heard playing his guitar and singing on a few occasions , from the comfort of his home.

The quiet surrounding this home at night is very calming, only interrupted occasionally by the yapping of a coyote . Truly a relaxing get away.

Each person in our party has declared this home the place to stay when returning to Tucson . I completely agree.
