Guestbook comments from the owner

Views all the way around. Close to the best part of the Saguaro National Park. Best sunsets close at Gates Pass. Home is immaculate. Pool is refreshing. Patio and watching sun rises is the perfect way to start the day. Kitchen is stocked with top shelf cooking tools and flatware. Beds and baths are so comfortable and clean. Carella is a charming person. My wife and I already promised to be back.”

It was a lovely home with a beautiful desert view

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything we had hoped for. Stocked with all of the supplies one could need for a lovely vacation. Our host was very pleasant and our accommodations perfect. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Calm and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home was so nice and out where you can enjoy the desert, see wildlife and be totally relaxed. Carella is so kind and always there if you need anything. I had my family there so we used every inch of the home. It is perfect also for a couple just wanting some time away from all the hustle. It is so private. You won't be sorry you booked this charming home.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for our needs. We truly enjoyed the patio with the multitude of bird life. Coffee in hand or sitting by the open fire watching the stars. Highly recommend. Michael and Miriam

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

What a place! Smart and efficient floor plan makes this place seem twice as big as it actually is. Private and secluded location on the edge of town offer quiet and peaceful outdoor space to relax. Wonferfully landscaped property with gigantic Saguaros right in the yard. While it feels like you are out in the country, you are still less than half an hour away from pretty much every attraction in the Tucson area(If you’ve every driven around Tucson, you know that it takes you half an hour to get anywhere!). The kitchen was overstocked with quality gadgets galore, and a quality grocery store less than 5 minutes away made it easy to cook healthy, yummy meals. There is also an In&Out Burger less than 5 minutes away!!!

Our family felt cozy and comfortable in the living areas, we looked forward to coming “home” after a long, hot day of hiking and curling up on the couches for a Netflix movie before bed.

Dessert Museum = 20min. Away

Pima Air & Space Museum = 30min. Away

Sabino Canyon = 30min. Away

Catalina SP = 30min. Away

Sweetwater Trail = 20min. Away

Carella has thought of everything for you to enjoy Tucson no matter what you are up for, we can’t wait to return and enjoy another getaway. Thanks Carella!!!!

Best Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented much more expensive properties before but this one is so very comfortable, clean, and centrally located to many top rated activities, that we would be hard pressed to find something we like better! Carella is so very helpful and accommodating, which is also a big plus. We did hot air ballooning, and visited the Pima Air and Space Museum (both activities we highly recommend), hiked in the wonderful Sonora Desert Museum area, took the tram ride in Sabino Canyon, visited Tohono Chul , and spent time with our 97 year old mom. We loved sitting outside in the evening and watching all the birds and other wildlife. We plan on returning, this time for a period longer than 1 week!

Delightful and comfortable home surrounded by beautiful desert.

  • 5 of 5

The home is pleasantly furnished, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen utensils are high quality. We loved the location -- surrounded by desert but close to grocery and other stores. We spent a delightful week and recommend it highly.

This northwest, Tucson home is tastefully appointed to make a comfortable and cozy vacation home. With a short drive down an unpaved road (100 yards) the casita is encompassed in an oasis surrounded by nature. See sightings of cottontail rabbits, Gambel’s quails and an assortment of lizards, hummingbirds, and squirrels. Catch glimpses of javelina, coyotes or jackrabbits that might visit the neighborhood. Surrounded by fabulous mountain views which add to stunning sunsets and sunrises.
