  • Very Peaceful Setting

    "Having to come down in the heat of summer we did not know what to expect. We only stayed at the Casita to sleep and have morning coffee because of family commitments, but it was the perfect resting place for us. Very quiet and a beautiful sitting area for our morning coffee. We can only imagine how beautiful the sunsets are. We would love to find the time to spend a few weeks in the winter. We are sure it has to be one of the most relaxing places you could find. We only got to meet the owners one morning but I assure you that they will help to make your stay very pleasurable."

  • Perfect for Older Kids and Nature Lovers!

    "This was "home base" for my 12-year-old and I for 7 nights in June. The location is wonderful, with grocery stores & restaurants 10 minutes away. Even better, there is nothing between Saguaro Park West and the home, allowing us to encounter wildlife we would not have seen otherwise. The gated neighborhood is very quiet, private, and secure, so I was comfortable leaving my son alone in the house while I hiked. For my son, the (incredibly clean) pool was his favorite part, it has deep section for diving. The pool table was a hit, too. Ron set us up with hundreds of digital movies, as well as Netflix access and more, so my son was never "bored." The internet in the home is very fast, reliable, and reaches well out into the yard and pool area. As for me, in the yard and immediate area I was able to see a family of javelina (with babies!), a kit fox, a coyote, and a pair of mule deer. A few hours after we left, Ron even sent us a photo of a bobcat he spotted right outside the house! There are resident Gambel's Quail, hummingbirds at the feeder, and every dusk a Common Poorwill gets a "fly-by" drink from the pool. You can park along the road leading to the home for a quick hike into the hills and washes. There are nice geological samples there, with an amazing variety. As some reviews have mentioned, the house is not perfect. It is not new construction, some of the furnishings and appliances are not brand new. However, at least when we stayed, the cost was the same per night as a single room at the Westin downtown - for a huge house with a quiet yard and a private pool, and the option to cook your own food. So while the fridge was missing some shelves and drawers, it kept our food and drinks cold. While the starters on the stove clicked the entire time you used the burners, it always started and worked fine. The beds were very comfy, the water pressure was great, and the AC never failed us. Some things need repair, some furniture may need replaced in a few years, but this is a popular rental in a popular area, and I am sure some renters are not as careful or conscientious as they could be. If you want the quality of the Peninsula Hotel, but the size of a huge house, you will need to look elsewhere - and expect to pay a great deal more. If you are looking for privacy, space, and comfort in a perfect desert setting, where you can cook your own food and wash your own clothes - at a very fair price! - this is it. Ron will take very good care of you."

  • It's a wowser!!

    "The casita, the location, Claire and Larry, and the setting are simply wonderful. How wonderful? The acid test: We have already made our reservation to return next year and for a longer stay. Set against the Tortelino Mountains, with the Santa Catalinas, the Santa Ritas, the Rincon and the Tucson mountains on the horizon you cannot find a better place to be. There is a 2 mile walking loop through the desert, starting at the front door. Within 10 minutes we were at the trail head in the Tortelinos, and within 15 minutes at one of the trailheads in the Santa Catalinas. The tennis court is right outside the backdoor. Downtown Tucson is 25 minutes away. In 5 minutes you can be at a first rate supermarket. Sitting on the patio, we spotted 27 species of birds, many rabbits and lizards. Javelinas and deer and who knows what else are in the wilds nearby should you wish to seek them out. Cactus is in abundance. Claire and Larry are gracious and always ready to help if needed. Their house is situated so you and they have complete privacy. The casita is very comfortable, informal , and had almost everything we needed to make our stay very, very pleasant. The kitchen is well stocked. The beds are great. Having the guest bedrooms and bath off a separate hallway of the casita gave us and our visitor’s their own space. We just loved the place and our stay."

  • Beautiful home with amazing views

    "The home is beautiful with lots of room! We had two families, 4 adults and 6 kids so we needed the space! It worked out perfectly! The views are amazing all around and Karine is very helpful when needed! I miss waking up to the mountains the most and can't wait to return soon!"
