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.”

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.

We felt like we were coming home every night

  • 5 of 5

Every time we returned after touring, we felt like we were coming home . . . the decor is so pleasing and the pool and desert views so refreshing and calming. The home is very well furnished and equipped. We found everything we needed...and it was nice knowing that Carella was available near by. This lovely home is on our list to visit again someday! Thanks to Carella for making our stay in Tucson perfect!

Wonderful haven close to everything in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Carella's home from 8/4 through 8/17. The home is lovely and spacious, full of thoughtful amenities to make your stay enjoyable. Among the highlights are a very well equipped kitchen, great laundry room, oversized one car attached garage, dyson vacuum, etc. All sorts of books, videos, puzzles, games etc. are provided, in addition to a lot of information and guides about all the local attractions, hikes, etc. In addition, there are coolers, camping chairs and other items in case you decide to adventure out. The internet and TV systems worked great. The outdoor spaces are wonderful! We enjoyed a lot of great time on the back porch, relaxing, grilling or watching the wildlife. Carella has the desert property full of specimen cacti and flowering trees and bushes. There is a very tame hummingbird that eats at your feeder whom we named "Dex". We also enjoyed relaxing by and swimming in the pool just a few steps from the guest house. The pool is a great design, plenty of areas to float around on noodles, and a great sitting bench built into the edge. The views of the Tucson valley from the pool are spectacular, and the views from the guest house are likewise great. At night, you can see the lights all the way across Tucson to the Tortolita and Catalina Mountains. The house is a close drive to a large grocery store and a lot of other shopping. Nothing in the Tucson area is very far away, the house has a great central location. Best of all, you have Carella and her beautiful little dog Maisey as your hosts. Carella will help you with anything you need, and we looked forward to visiting over the fence every day with her and Maisey! We can wholeheartedly recommend this great home to any prospective guests!

Pleasantly surprised!

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the website don't quite depict the grandeur of this "casita." We were impressed by the size of the rental. Much more than we expected. Carella knows how to run a vacation rental! She has thought of and provided everything a guest might need. We enjoyed the pool every evening, watching sunsets and storms. In the mornings we watched the birds from the back patio. The location is great - out in the desert, but nearby to public necessities. One of the best vacation rentals I've stayed in.
