Guestbook comments from the owner

You should advertise on your site how close you are to the Loop - wonderful for cyclists from the North.

We also went to Pinnacle Peak our last week. Great steak and show. Best steak I have had in years! Would go there again for sure! So thanks for all the tips!

We are sad to be leaving Arizona and your little Casita. We enjoyed meeting both of you and your family. Thanks for everything!

A Pretty quiet house at the border of the desert

  • 5 of 5

I came from France to Tucson to do hiking in south Arizona in August (less than 2-3 hours drive from Tucson). I particularly appreciated East Saguaro park (a lot of wild animals early morning, lovely cactus flowers), several hikes in the Tucson mountains, the wonderful Arizona-Sonora desert museum near west Saguaro park, the unique ambiance of Tombstone, the nice town of Bisbee (with excellent coffee and foods), and the Organ pipe cactus national monument near the Mexican border. The house is situated in a very quite place in the foothills of Catalina Mountains but you are very close to everything (shops, restaurant, etc). From the house you can enjoy the nature of the desert. The house is pretty with a very comfortable bed and a very well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, a large view on Catalina mountains and the North of Tucson (often nice sunsets). At last but not least, Jim and Meg were attentive and for me it was always a pleasure to discuss with them (for instance, nice breakfast with Jim at Egg Connection restaurant). In brief I had super time at this place and very likely will be back next year.

Delightful desert living

  • 4 of 5

Located on 5 acres of pristine desert in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains, this guest house is a perfect retreat to enjoy nature at it finest. We enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, and the "Mayan" temple.
