Pleasant and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Lovely casita! We used it as a base while visiting our new home in Quail Creek. John was helpful and not intrusive. The dog was an added benefit!

The property was fine - there was just no closet or storage area to keep our suitcases.

  • 3 of 5

The space was a little cramped and had to keep our suitcases on the floor as the only area available for clothes were the drawers at the base of the bed. John kindly offered to put our suitcases in the laundry room which was a separate room outside of his house but we needed into our suitcases daily so that wasn’t convenient for us. The shower was well stocked with body wash, etc and he had nice towels. The space would be more intended for a short stay - we had 4 nights there. John was very helpful with good communication, assistance and follow up.

Owner's Response: Hi Lora, I'm sorry you missed the armoire to the left of the oven which had space for hanging clothes. The beds headboard also had storage. After the first night I always inquire as to the accommodations and apologize if you communicated the storage issue and I missed it. John

Quiet and incredibly comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just completed a five night stay in this wonderful guest house. The location is perfect for doing all sorts of things in Tucson and the surrounding area, but we were really impressed with how nice and helpful the owner of the property was, how quiet it was staying here, and how incredibly comfortable the bed was. Also, the owner's dog, shown in this picture, is so friendly that she made us feel welcome whenever we saw her. This is a great rental property for two people and we will definitely stay here again.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at John's guest accomodation and it offers us the perfect place to relax in clean, secure, comfortable and private accommodaton with a fantastic owner and his dog, Chloie, who is adorable.

The house is situated conveniently for shops, amenities and our family who live close by. It is a great escape from three young grandchildren and a place to chill out in the evenings, sitting by the pool with a glass of wine and enjoying the company of our host from time to time.

John is very helpful and attentive to the needs of his guests and we thank him once.more and hope to see both him and Chloie in the future.
