The Tohono Trail Casita is a unique private getaway. It is located at the Agua Caliente Canyon and overlooks the vast Tucson Valley and sloping mountainside of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The Beautiful Casita features tasteful Southwestern decor with a spacious living room, fireplace, kitchenette and bedroom with full bath. Our guests feel the serenity of the Sonoran Desert, while enjoying the beauty of the surrounding mountains and star-filled nights from their private porch. The Casita is roughly 25 minutes from Downtown Tucson and the University of Arizona. There are several golf courses nearby, including The Arizona National Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course ranked in the top 25 of all public courses in Arizona. The Casita is close enough to shopping and grocery stores to be convenient, yet far enough to escape the crowds. There are great restaurants and grocery shopping within 10 minutes of the Casita.
Visitors are invited to relax and enjoy a heated outdoor spa, outdoor fireplace and outdoor BBQ at the main house if you feel like staying in. If you like hiking, trails are within steps of your front door, the trails range in length and difficulty. The Casita offers hiking access to the Aqua Caliente Canyon that will lead you to pools of water and a perfect place for a picnic, or if you prefer, Milagrosa Canyon is a short 20 minute hike. The Milagrosa Falls boast a triple waterfall that can be seen running during the rainy season.
The Casita is equipped with washer and dryer, iron, ironing board, cable TV, phone, Wi-Fi, linens, towels, robes, dishes, glassware, silverware, microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator with small freezer, Keurig Coffee maker and more. Horse facilities and trailer parking are also available.
The Tohono Trail Casita is a truly peaceful and serene getaway. We are excited to have you as our guests. If you’ve come to golf, hike, relax or visit many of the things Tucson has to offer such as the Sonoran Desert Museum, the Air and Space Museum, Mount Lemmon, you will not be disappointed.

About Peggy & Carrie
We built our home and the Casita from the ground up. The home is all our own design and boasts many of the beautiful southwestern decor we have collected over the years. We have lived in Tucson for over 30 years and absolutely love the desert. We are excited to share our beautiful home and Casita with you. To us everyone is family. We hope you will become a part of ours.

Quiet and relaxing
What ana amazing stay. My wife and I enjoyed this location due to the hospitality of the owner and how beautiful it was. Woke up in the morning to the sunrise going above the mountains. So close to Tucson yet feels far away due to the serene drive. Thank you so much again!!
Quiet retreat on the edge of the desert
My wife and I stayed at the Casita in early February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We are returning guests (at least our third visit!) and always find a clean and comfortable base for our activities in the Tucson area. We highly recommend the Casita especially for those who, like us, come to enjoy hiking in the desert. A wonderful trail in Aqua Caliente canyon starts virtually right behind the Casita.
In the evenings, we enjoyed the view of the sunset over the city with the mountains framing the scene as we relaxed in the soothing spa.
Nice tranquil casita in the desert
We were in Tucson for the gem show so unfortunately we didn't spend as much time enjoying this lovely casita as we'd have liked to. We were running from show to show. The last night we were there we enjoyed the most beautiful sunset. The casita had everything we needed and a bonus washer and dryer saved us a trip to the washateria.
The whole package
Fantastic location. Nestled up in the foothills amid the saguaro with awesome mountain views. Private feel. Tasteful inside with classy touches of the Southwest. Fully appointed, clean and a real homey feel. Could easily stay weeks here as a home base.
Beautiful casita in peaceful valley
The casita is very nicely furnished and well equipped. The tiny kitchen area , while equipped with microwave and toas ter oven, makes dining a challenge. There is no dishwasher.
The views from the casita are glorious but the final 100 yards before the driveway really require a SUV for rock Clearance.
Despite some problems, the views and peaceful quiet make it all worthwhile.
Not enough superlative words to describe this property. Amazing views, amenities had every attention
Owner was so gracious and kind and friendly. Bed was extremely comfortable. Everything and more in what we could expect in a VRBO
