Later, prepare delicious tapas and cocktails on the patio, which features an outdoor kitchen with gas and charcoal grills, plus a fire pit. You’ll quickly get used to spending your downtime relishing in the Arizona sunshine by the property’s alluring swimming pool and Swim Spa Jacuzzi private to the estate - it simply doesn’t get better than this! 

You can’t beat this casita’s prime location! From here, you’ll be within walking distance of local shops and restaurants, as well as just 20 minutes away from La Encantada, Tucson’s upscale outdoor shopping center, which offers elegant shopping and fine dining. For a more unique shopping experience, enjoy a stroll along 4th Avenue in downtown Tucson. While you’re in the area, make sure to visit the Tucson Botanical Gardens.

Best Place to Stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this casita, and it's truly beautiful. Its close to everything you need. The pool, pizza brick oven, grill, and jacuzzi is amazing. The views are undeniable at night. The owners are incredibly friendly, and it is prominent that they take care of their property. Without a doubt, the best place to rent in Tucson n

Most AMAZING View in Tucson, AZ

  • 5 of 5

If you think the pictures suggest that this is a classy property, you aren't even close. This is one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed at from VRBO/HomeAway. It is even nicer than the pictures, everything up to snap and all the accessories you could possibly want or need. But the best thing about this Casita was the Amazing views from the back yard garden /patio. The landscaping is perhaps the finest in Tucson, and views of the city and mountains, especially at sunset, were spectacular. We made a point of getting back to the property in time to sit outside with a glass of wine and just soak up the beauty of each sunset and the changing sky colors for at least an hour after the sun went down behind the mountains to the west and the coloration of the mountains to the east. It can't be beat!

This is not meant for a longterm rental.

  • 1 of 5

The pool is not heated and not usable in the winter months. The one-bedroom casita might be okay for a long weekend, but is not suitable for a month-long stay. Only a couple of drawers, a tiny closet and no other storage. Kitchen is more like a kitchenette with no dishwasher, no serving dishes, few cups; impossible to entertain or even cook a meal. The second bathroom is hooked into the outdoor hot tub sound system and controlled by anyone using it. Smells of cooking and/or outside smoking come into the unit. The unit is very small and dark, has only a view of the parking area. We had to wait for the cable person when owners had the cable changed and our TVs stopped working. HVAC thermostat was complicated and hard to modify. All around poor choice for us.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that this property was not a good fit for your group. The pool is not heated and is not advertised as such but it is open and functional year-round. In this unit, there are 2 closets, 6 dresser drawers and 2 nightstands with large drawers. The casita does come with a smaller, fully-stocked kitchen. The only item not included is a dishwasher (again not advertised), but it has a full sized refrigerator, stove and comes fully stocked for 6 people. Additional items can be provided upon request. The backyard does have a BBQ grill and the grounds are "open grounds" for all the guests to stay. The windows in the units are double insulated glass with sound reducing properties to make guests comfortable. The spa is located across the property and is not connected to the casita in anyway, the spa does come with a built in speaker system but it can only be controlled or heard if you are physically in the spa. The satellite TV went out and the company was called out and dispatched that same day. We are not able to anticipate when items will fail but we are on top of fixing it ASAP so we do not disrupt our guests stay. The thermostat has 3 buttons. (Mode, temp up & down and a time setting) The property manager shows all guests how to operate every device. The property manager came out several times during your stay to assist with operating the devices. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. This helps us to make improvements for future guests. We wish you the best of luck in your future travels. - The Evolve Team

Lovely casita

Conveniently located in the foothills, 2 minute drive to WholeFoods. Kearsten was always always available and accommodating. Casita is beautifully appointed and comfortable. Gorgeous views.
