Brilliant and brought back many memories of living in Arizona and New Mexico. Wonderful way to share this with my domestic Partner. A wonderful little space to get away and enjoy the magic Arizonaand imaginary of Arizona
Unique picturesque location close-in
This clean, quiet, comfortable one-bedroom casita is in a truly unique location. Situated on the top of a hill just off River Rd, the setting provides nearly 360 degree view of the natural surroundings, including sunrise, panorama of downtown Tucson, the near-by Catalina mtns to the north, and terrific sunsets. We watched the lunar eclipse from the common area in front of the casita and it was spectacular. This is also close to the Rilito, the Tucson Racquet and Fitness Club, and a short drive (~15-20min) to downtown. Host Meg was prompt in response to questions, and flexible with arrival/departure times when she could be. This is our second stay at this casita, and if we didn't buy a home here during our last visit we'd be back again!
Note that the pool, while pretty, is not heated and therefore water is too cold to use during winter months...
Perfect for Two
The guest house was a perfect getaway for the two of us. The location is great - close to the mountains for hiking, yet close enough to shopping for every day needs. The owners were very accommodating to our schedule, making our trip that much better...many thanks!
This modest suite has impressive views in all directions. That is it’s best feature. The location is also good. It’s close to downtown or hiking in the mountains. The suite has kitchen basics for cooking or simple meal preparation. The bedroom and bathroom are adequate. The TV/sitting room is comfortable. It’s best for no more than 2 people . Multi-use trail nearby makes it walkable to the Rillito farmers market Sunday or to Trader Joe’s for groceries. Coffee in the morning watching the sun rise makes it a special memory.
A Pretty quiet house at the border of the desert
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
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.
