About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Guesthouse With Private Patio, Barbecue, and Hot Tub

Fully furnished 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom Santa Fe Style hillside casita, with incredible views of the mountains and the city of Tucson. This newly constructed guesthouse is fully furnished, including a clothes washer and dryer, and is located in the foothills of the Catalinas, at the base of Mount Lemmon. The guesthouse is located on a three acre property, is surrounded by Saguaros, Ocotillo, and desert wildlife, and has a private patio with a private hot tub.

Arizona National is the closest golf course and is only a 5-10 minute drive from our casita. The closest shopping center is 5 miles (10 minutes) away, according to Google Maps. The drive up to Mount Lemmon starts only minutes away and leads to hiking, cycling, mountain biking, camping, fishing, scenic overlooks, and skiing (depending upon the season and the weather). By car, downtown Tucson is 36 minutes away, and The University of Arizona is 29 minutes away (both according to Google Maps).

The guesthouse is designed to accommodate up to 2 people using the king size bed, but we may be able to accommodate a couple with a small child, as well. Please contact us about this situation ahead of any requests for booking.

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the casita everything that we wanted, but the owners were extremely friendly and hospitable. They never once bothered us, but were always available to answer questions and help out. Don't be turned off by the fact that the casita is right next to the the main house. The property is large, and you should have no worries about intrusion or awkwardness. It is a large casita too, with extra large bedroom and bathroom. The grill and entertaining space were awesome, and the views from the private hot tub are spectacular!

A very comfortable, private, and scenic place to rejuvenate while staying in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great visit in Tucson, and having this well designed Casita to return to at the end of the day proved to be very replenishing. I was surprised at just how quiet it was inside. We slept very comfortably on the king-sized bed. The dual shower heads are amazing with both having great pressure at the same time. Michael was very accommodating in helping us firm up our reservations and getting us checked in. It was also really nice meeting Alejandra and getting great tips on the surrounding area. We would definitely stay here again. If you're interested in staying on the north east side of Tucson up on the Catalina Foothills next to Mt. Lemmon and Sabino Canyon, I highly recommend this Casita.

Perfect Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at the casita. It is a convenient distance from the city, and the views from the casita are amazing. We enjoyed coffee each day on the patio. While the kitchen does not have an oven, we did not want to bake while on vacation.

The outdoor grill was a bonus as we eat on our patio all summer in Michigan, and were able to extend our summer at the casita.

Our hosts were available when needed, and invisible when not needed. They were very pleasant indeed. We hope to stay there again in the future as we decide on a place to retire.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review. It is correct that we do not have a full-sized free-standing stove, but the built-in microwave is also a convection oven and can be used to bake small dishes (or a batch of chocolate chip cookies!).

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The Casita was amazing. The property sits right on Mount Lemmon and you can be on any of the trails in about five minutes. The drive or ride up Mount Lemmon is stunning and is right at the end of the private road. Michael and Alejandra were wonderful hosts and were very helpful when I needed them. I saw Javelina, rabbits, and deer during my stay. There are perfect Saguaro all over the property. You can't tell from the pictures, but the shower is enormous! There are dual rainshower heads and plenty of space. The Casita also has amazing natural light and the hot tub is the perfect spot to catch the sunset every night. Both the outdoor and indoor kitchens were very well equipped. Also, since it is off the beaten path, there was no noise. No road noise, no neighbor noise, just complete peace and tranquility. I would love to stay there again.

Our stay was simply - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of May at this truly amazing property. We came from Los Angeles to get away from the city and enjoy a month immersed in the desert landscapes of Arizona. We did not have a specific location in mind so we just searched Air B N B and VRBO and stumbled across this listing mostly due to the amazing pictures and low price. To be honest our expectations were pretty low based on the price but we decided to give it a shot and were absolutely delighted with our experience. The Casita has everything you would need to enjoy a great stay. Some of our favorite features were the amazing tiled rain shower, king bed, sky lights and well appointed finishing touches of the home. Out of all the home rentals that we have stayed at this was the best experience we've had, and cleanest - it was as if we were the first people to have rented the home. It was spotless. The views cannot quite be described properly with out experiencing first hand. But notably during the day there are fabulous views of the valley, and from the bedroom there are spectacular views of the mountains. The property is really situated ideally in our opinion. Due to the design of the property the sun never came through the windows on our stay, and due to this, we never once had to use the air conditioning. At night the lights of Tucson in the distance are amazing to watch while sitting in the living room or enjoying the night stars out on the Casita's decks. Each night we used the jacuzzi to relax & star gaze and that added to our experience greatly. What a way to end the day! The owners are there if you need them, gone if don't. They were also very personable and informative regarding the area and very attentive in making sure our stay was great. Since the property is located next to/within an animal sanctuary we saw many different species of truly amazing animals!!! The best way to describe our stay is simply, AMAZING!

Comfy Casita Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a comfortable and convenient place to stay! Our five-day agenda included seeing the typical tourists sights in the area, plus hiking in Saguaro National Park and a night Sky Watch tour of the Mount Lemmon Observatories. The casita was the perfect location for easy travel to the places we wanted to visit.

The setting is lovely, with great nighttime views of the stars or the Tucson city lights. The casita is well appointed, with everything you need to grill on the patio or prepare a simple meal in the kitchen. Dining for two can be inside or out, and don't miss the chance to relax in the hot tub.

Finally, the hosts are helpful every way. Thanks so much for answering our many questions and making our stay pleasant, indeed!
