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.

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.

Great location, everything as described.

  • 4 of 5

I wish the owner was little bit more responsive. Kitchen could have been much better had there been a portable induction cooktop and along with few pots and pans for families who plan to stay for few days. Apart from these, this is a 5 star property for sure.

Rustic Tucson Guest House

  • 4 of 5

Guest house is located on ranch property in very natural setting with cactus gardens. The owners have horses and we were very fortunate that one was born the night before we arrived. Helped to give a true "American Southwest" experience. Property was a good location for visiting Old Tucson Studios and Arizona Senora Dessert Museum. There are some restaurants within a 15 min drive (kitchen has microwave and small fridge which is fine for breakfast and lunch). We stayed for only two nights and did not venture into "downtown" Tucson area. We wanted to stay in a rural location rather than in a suburb...which we have at home. You definitely need a car to get around (we had a rental).

This is our second stay at this Tucson location. An ideal setting for a quiet two weeks in the dessert. The accommodations are adequate and the owners live close by the rental in the unforeseen event of any problems. We would definitely stay here again if we return to the Tuscan area.

Awesome adventure

  • 5 of 5

Great Tucson location, so near to everything, yet "out and away" from it all. We loved watching the hot air balloons on the weekend mornings against the hills of Saguaro NP. The house accommodated our family well and everyone had lots of space to relax in. We are a "cooking" family and that was the part we had to get "creative" on, but managed to make the small "kitchen" area work for that as well. I loved taking my dog for morning walks around the neighborhood. Pam and Lou are gracious hosts and we will be returning again and again..
