Enjoy this lovely guest quarters situated on a one-acre property that is adjoined to a main house and has a private entrance. Guests can enjoy their mornings on the private patio or courtyard with mountain views, surrounded by the sweet smell of jasmine when in bloom and the chirping of birds and scurrying of lizards on this beautifully maintained property. You will feel like you are truly in the desert. The unit is clean, well appointed and light. To stay connected, there is WIFI and cable TV (w/HBO) in the living room. New comfy Saatva queen size mattress and Sobel Westex sheets. Protective covers and pads for mattress and pillows. New sofa bed w/premium mattress in living room for two additional guests. Your well-behaved dog is welcome upon prior approval. Parking is right next to the unit. A lovely courtyard partially shaded by a ramada provides a backdrop for the abundant bird life. At dusk the courtyard is lighted and welcoming. Enjoy the lovely private patio with gas grill and a view of the Catalina Mountains. While some of my guests come for a week, many enjoy a month-long visit or longer.
Please note that this is not a freestanding secluded house though lovely and quiet. You will see the smiling faces of myself and my dogs occasionally as we pass through the courtyard when we're in town. You will also see occasional service/maintenance people around to keep the property in tip top shape.
Welcome to my special property! Originally from Chicago, IL, I live in Tucson part time and Northern California with my dogs and truly enjoy this property for it's beauty and proximity to the desert sights and sounds. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Laura Gargano purchased this apartment in 2015
This property is close enough to in town activities while feeling like it's a desert haven. It's close to hiking trails, excellent restaurants, watering holes, shopping and within minutes to the top spas in Tucson. It's also 15 minutes straight down the hill to U of A.Some people have stayed while attending events at local resorts or while relocating to Tucson. It's comfortable and welcoming.
Your dog is welcome. I doI ask that guests not leave their dog unattended in the unit for more than four hours at a time to avoid potential accidents. Please inquire about dog sitting or walking if you'd like to enjoy time away for the day and can't bring your pup.
There are two outdoor areas to enjoy - the trellised courtyard and walled patio with cactus garden, market umbrella and gas grill.
For stays of two weeks or longer, laundry room is available upon arrangement.
Please note that I also live part-time on this property in the adjoining house. This property is very well maintained. In order to do this, you will see and hear service people from time to time.
This casita is a gem in a great location. You have a rural feel with all the amenities of the city minutes away. Quiet, private, and very clean! Laura takes good care of her guests with all the amenities that they will need to get started with their stay and information where to go for great Tucson food and sites. The kitchen was adequately stocked with cooking supplies, including a variety of spices. We appreciated the lemon tree on the property which had THE best fresh lemons we ever tasted, and Laura generously shared them with us! If we return to Tucson, this is our number one choice of a place to stay.
My wife and I recently moved to Tucson as I started a new position at the U of A. Found Laura's place online and signed up for 3.5 months to give us time to find a place to buy. Very happy with our rental- a real home from home. Great location in the foothills, close enough to town but also right in the middle of amazing nature- we see quails, road runners and even coyotes on a regular basis. Good space and Laura has equipped the kitchen so we can properly cook without running out of plates/pans etc. One huge bonus has been having our dogs as allowed guests.
What an amazing place to stay! Tucked in the foothills on the edge of Tucson, this beautiful rental is so peaceful and scenic and a perfect getaway. Our family really enjoyed our vacation time and Laura was a wonderful and helpful host during our stay. I highly recommend this place especially if you're an animal and nature lover looking for a place to relax in the Tucson area! Thanks again for your hospitality and kindness to our little family!
My husband and I plus our two Jack Russell's had a perfect week in the Guest Quarters. Laura was very pleasant to deal with and the lodging was squeaky clean and just as advertised. We especially enjoyed the quiet desert location! We hope to return soon.
Our stay at the Catalina Foothills ID#705123 was nothing short of perfect. Laura was a splendid hostess. She shared her fresh lemons from her tree and even brought over her blender for us to make fresh lemonade!! Her apt. was clean, comfortable and scenic. We would definitely stay here again on a future trip to Tucson.
This property is located in the area of Tucson's foothills top spa and golf resorts. Enjoy your visit to these wonderful places and then retreat to your nearby guest quarters.
