About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

If you are looking for a low key, quiet, laid back retreat, Mi Linda Casita is waiting for you.

Mi Linda Casita is located in an established neighborhood on the East Side. Home has recently been remodeled with all new furniture and fixtures. Bedrooms have 2 queens and 2 twins to comfortably sleep 6. Home is well suited to elderly guests, families with young children and everyone between.

The kitchen is fully loaded with most anything you will need for all your family’s cooking needs. The table and chairs seat 6 comfortable, but I also have 2 extra chairs along with a folding table and chairs if you have guests. There is a table and 4 chairs on the patio to enjoy coffee in the morning while watching the roadrunners, an another by the pool for taking a break from swimming. There is a TV in the kitchen so you can watch the morning news with your breakfast, or tune into the kids favorite show.

The Den is cozy and perfect for curling up and watching a movie or a sporting event any time of day. With a small selection of Movies, Games and Books to pass your evening. There is Cable TV and high speed internet, with wifi to hook up to.

The back yard is a mini escape with the private pool, patio and hot tub. The pool area is fenced and can be locked, and separate from the yard so no worries while the kids are in the back yard playing. You can sit by the fire pit and enjoy the stars at night and listen to the coyotes howl, or relax in the sun and watch the bird life come and go. We are close to the Air Force Base so on occasion you can watch the planes flying over. Close enough to enjoy, but far enough away the noise is not a bother.

While visiting drop your wine corks into the wine bottle basket and you are entered to win a free two night stay!

If you have any concerns or questions don’t hesitate to give me a call.

About Cindy Dillard

We have vacationed in Tucson for over 30 years and have family in the area. So now we have a home away from home that we would like to share. The winter weather is beautiful and there is so much to do. Or just sit on the patio and relax.

Cindy Dillard purchased this house in 2013

Why Cindy Dillard chose Tucson

This property is close to several Tucson attractions: The Pima Air & Space Museum, Lincoln Park, Bicycle trails, and the Saguaro National Park. Get out and enjoy what Tucson has to offer, or just relax in the private back yard and watch the birds getting drinks out of the pool. The pool is fenced in so you don't have to worry about the little ones falling in when they are in the back yard playing.

What makes this house unique

We love the private pool with the quite location with the views of the park and golf course. We have a pair of red tail hawks that come and visit every day. And now and owl has made a nest under the car port!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Cindy,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. The view from the back yard is beautiful. The stars amazing - but nothing can compare with the care you have taken to make your home a wonderful place to stay.

This property was charming, quiet and well equipped; even things I didn’t know I needed. Met the host as we arrived earlier than our check in time; we were warmly welcomed and invited to drop off our luggage while we went to the grocery store. The host showed us around the property and how to work equipment.

The back yard is beautiful and peaceful; backs up to the Lincoln Park green belt. The pool was amazing and we had several memorable evenings BBQ with family. Would definitely recommend property

Groves Lincoln Park

  • 3 of 5

Our 4 generation family all liked the house; it is quiet and comfortable with lots of nice features, and the back yard is great. Unfortunately I only read the first two pages of reviews (my fault), so finding there was a swamp cooler instead of air conditioning was a real downer. Iowans are no strangers to hot, muggy weather so we survived, but we would have appreciated a heads-up before we came. I have no doubt anyone will enjoy this property in the winter months, but not so much in summer.

Perfectly private neighborhood home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 16 days here, and the home worked so well for us. The massive views from the wonderful backyard topped everything! So private despite the openness. The home is well appointed, kitchen has everything you’ll need. Great linens and comfortable beds too. We had a lovely visit!

winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have never stayed in this part of town, but after this visit we will want to stay again. Saguaro, Mt. Lemon, Sabino Canyon, Mission, Air Museum all within 20 minutes or less. Private back yard and a very comfortable house. Lincoln park is right out the back door. Walk down the wash, head to the right, go through a large hole in the fence and you are on walking trails. Will put on my top list to stay again. Dave
