Hi, and welcome to Tucson! I am a native of Arizona, being born in Phoenix and moving to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona- 'Go Wildcats!'. I love Tucson and my family and I have lived here over 30 years. I am a clay artist and also lead a Laughter Yoga group every Tuesday night. Everyone is invited to attend and it is free of charge. I can tell you all about it, as well as some of Tucson's entertainment "gems". My husband is a concert promoter of a variety of shows and can give you complementary tickets (2) to the concerts he may have during your stay!
Loti Gest purchased this condo in 2002
We bought this condo from a friend and have had it for over 10 years. We really enjoy being able to provide a beautiful, quiet and friendly space for travelers to call home for awhile. When we vacation, a 'home away' instead of a hotel provides a family experience whether for a single traveler or a group, and we are dog-friendly.
Not only is our condo unique, with wood floors and beautiful renovations, but the complex is special in that there a many travelers that winter there and regulars return each year to join up with their new-found friends. They even have taken it upon themselves to have a weekly get-together and outdoor barbeque as they gather around the lovely, heated pool and spa! Plus, we live nearby and have a handyman on call should you have any repair problems.
I stayed at this condo for 4 months while doing a local internship. It has all of the amenities and then some. Spacious rooms, walk in closet, fully stocked kitchen, serene location yet within walking distance to shops and restaurants, and nestled into the Catalina foothills for beautiful views and excellent hiking. The Gests are conscientious owners that are a text away for any questions. They were very welcoming of my dog as well. Highly recommend this rental.
My wife and I arrived Jan 3rd to spend 3 months in Tucson. We had the most fantastic time. The weather was perfect as was our living quarters. This property is exactly as described. Loti and Don provide for you a cozy but comfortable home. When we asked if there was a crocked pot or waffle iron we were told "no". But low and behold when we arrived there they were new in the box. Thank you very much Loti!! When one spends a quarter of the year in a different place one tries to make it as "home" like as possible and that was not difficult to do as this property is nicely furnished. I think we hit all the Tucson hi-lites and then some. Most everything in Tucson is fairly easy to get to and this place is a nice launching pad for all your adventures. Close to shopping and groceries and some nice eating options available within walking distance. I suggest you try El Cisne Mexican restaurant. Again, Thanks Loti and Don for providing a very comfortable and affordable vacation rental.
We stayed here for almost a month, and it was really great. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, that's for sure! We had everything we needed, and enjoyed having laundry in the condo. All of the businesses nearby are very convenient as well. I would definately recommend this spot to anyone that needs a place to stay while on vacation etc. It's in a very nice area of Tucson.
The location was just perfect for us! Everything we could possibly need was nearby. The condo itself was quite nice and close to the pool where we met some very nice people. Loti and Don were the best--so helpful and on the spot if a problem occurred. We would certainly want to come back here in the future. Thanks so much for a great vacation!!
The condo is on the back side of this older complex and very quiet. The owner was helpful and met our needs when requested. Loti has lived in Arizona for many years and made suggestions regarding sites. We arrived a bit early and the cleaning person was just finishing so the condo was very clean upon arrival. There is a super nice grocery store nearby.
Our party of 3 stayed at Loti and Don's property for 2 lovely weeks in December. The condo is very comfortable and ideally located. In 5 minutes, you can walk to a grocery store, bakery, restaurants, gift shop, coffee shop and we even used the nearby hardware store. The condo complex is set in the foothills of the Catalinas; the mountains are beautiful.
Both owners took a special interest in assuring that we were having a great visit to the city which they obviously love and are very knowledgeable about. Loti "checked in" a few times to be sure everything was going well, but was never intrusive.
As a previous reviewer stated, the location of this condo is away from the busiest part of Tucson, yet an easy drive to downtown and its vicinity, if you wish to explore that area.
We did three "day trips" out of Tucson, and once again, the owners were helpful in advising us about our plans. We especially enjoyed our drive to Mt. Lemmon and were happy to be within a few miles of the spectacular Sabino Canyon.
We would recommend this property.
