  • Another wonderful visit with John & Chloie

    "We've now stayed with John multiple times and each time is an entirely satisfactory visit. John is always there when you need him, but never too intrusive. Chloie, his dog, is a real bonus: she's friendly, gentle and well-trained. The property is impeccably tidy, well-maintained and stocked with everything you need begin a stay in Tucson. We are looking forward to many returns!"

  • Loved the location and quietness.

    "After attending the Gem and Mineral showcase for visits of less than a week over the last 20 years my wife and I decided it was time to stay in Tucson longer since we have friends there and have recently retired. Also, as geologists we love visiting the show and my wife's sister who is a silversmith joined us to purchase gems. When I first applied for the this place last spring there was a hold on it but later was able to rent it for three weeks, I must say that of the HomeAway rental we have stayed in this is in the top tier. We loved the location, the quietness, and the privacy. The house was clean and well maintained plus the kitchen was stocked with just about everything needed for the extended stay. The location is perfect as it is between several shopping areas and easy access to downtown as well as the Interstate. The laundry facilities are a nice touch since we did have to look up a laundromat. The pool is not heated and being February understandably cold though it did warm enough towards the end to get in for a short period. The Spa is solar heated and again, being February, did not warm up much. Communicated with the owner and she indicated that the solar heating system would be improved this summer (2017). Ms. Priess, the owner, was responsive to that and other e-mail queries, usually answering the same day. A friend from Texas who is an avid birder joined us for a couple of days and we enjoyed the backyard and local as well other sites for birding. Side trips to Catalina State Park, about 10 miles up the road, and out to the Desert Museum were undertaken. A highlight trip was a drive down to Whitewater Draw to see over 20,000 Sandhill Cranes and other water birds. Highly recommended if you are a birder. And as a bonus, the drive takes you through Tombstone for a touristy stop. We will definitely stay here again if it is available during our time frame."

  • Wonderful winter getaway!!!!!

    "jThis was our second winter stay at Patricia's neat condo. We highly recommend it. We wrote a nice review last year so I won't repeat, but it is still neat, clean, well supplied, and a comfortable place for two people to spend 2 to 4 month. The location is spectacular and so convenient to everything you need."

  • Wonderful place

    "The casita is exactly as described, only more beautifully appointed. We lacked for nothing. While the casita is small -- good for two people, perhaps four if the visit is short -- it is lovely. The outdoor chairs and tables on both the east and west side, with the larger patio on the east, shielding barbequers and diners from the western sun, also work for someone like myself, with lots of oil-painting equipment. I painted from the patio and stored materials there for trips off the property, and it was a perfect space for that. Although the casita was a guest house for a larger building, it is perfectly private, at the end of the lane, so no other cars ever venture to the house. And the wildlife, especially the birds, are astonishingly varied and fascinating to watch. The house was sparkling clean when we arrived and the grounds perfect for checking out Sonoran plant life. Karine was responsive to our every need and full of good information about the area. She was on top of all the communications we had before and after our visit, answering questions and returning the deposit before we had a chance to think about it. The proximity to Saguaro National Park (east) means that a lot of wildlife, particularly birds, knowing no boundaries, come to the casita every day to play and live. Our favorite was the phainopepla, perhaps because we could recognize this small bird almost instantly. The many dirt lanes surrounding the area made for good morning walks and the national park entrance is just a mile or so up the road, for more hiking. The loop road around the park was one of our favorite excursions; we took it more than once, just for the charm of its winding, narrowness, paved in the 1930s by the CCC boys and retaining a sense of its history. Of course, Tucson and vicinity has more events and places to explore than we could encompass in a short month, although we tried. The highways into the city center are direct and easy to drive; a good Safeway and Sprouts (healthfood supermarket) are easily accessible. Our favorite restaurants included the one in the Desert Museum and Tohono Chul (another museum of natural history within the city). We also liked the university museums and Old Town as well at the trendy 4th-street scene. The Botanic Garden (good restaurant also) was an unexpected pleasure (we went back there twice), and its butterfly garden took my breath away. We have to return to explore all those things we couldn't fit in."
