Private, safe, great location

  • 5 of 5

John, the owner, was helpful but not intrusive. Space had everything I needed...full kitchen, i.e. full sized fridge, stove, microwave, and cabinetry. Bed was comfy...I slept really well and often don't; bathroom was efficient...fabulous shower (wished for washcloths, but realize men don't often use them); Chloe, the dog, was friendly and loving; pool, though I didn't partake, was very inviting, sparkling and clean; space was safe (owner is very insistent on locking the entry gate). Altogether a place I would certainly recommend. The location is great too...easy access to the mountains north and the central business area.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

John is a most gracious host. The property is clean & well-kept in a central location. His dog Chloe is charming & loves meeting everyone. Would recommend, especially for proximity to the Uniiversity & lots of fun things to do. Thank you, John!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with how accommodating the owner was, as well as knowledgable of the area for eating and entertainment. Very relaxing with nobody to bother you. His dog, Chloe, was very friendly and a joy to have around. I would return without hesitation.

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
