Guestbook comments from the owner

We needed a comfortable place to stay after long days in the field. The house is amazing with respect to the detail. Everything is perfect. It is well stocked with everything you need for an extended stay and Carella will assist you if there is anything you need. The comfortable beds! Brilliant after a long days work in the desert. We also enjoyed the backyard where we saw families of quail, javelina (marking their territory on the bird feeder), jackrabbits, scorpions, and families of cactus wrens! In summary Carella makes this an easy place to have a vacation, or in our case, a research trip. The best field “Station” ever!

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews were correct, Carella provides nearly everything needed. Having the basics already stocked was so very nice, like dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo and toilet paper, all the appliances functioning well.

The cooler came in very handy as we were there during quite the heat wave, we enjoyed the pool daily. The birds and bunnies were a delight watching from the back porch, Carella kept the bird feeders full and we were happy to add water to the bird baths.

The house is clean and tidy, and it's not an exaggeration, the office and home are stocked full of maps, guide books, magazines, etc. for all the things to do locally. We left a few ourselves. There are movies, games and books for everyone, it was so very nice to have so many things at our fingertips! Not to mention freshly ironed bed linens.

The only unexpected thing that we are not fans of is the skylight in the master bedroom, not easy to sleep past sunrise with it. Also, not a fan of no bathroom door in the master. The skylights in general though are amazing, they provide so much bright light without using electricity.

The three of us were very comfortable in the home, we recommend it.

A bit pricy but you get what you pay for - and this place is quite nice

  • 4 of 5

The house feels bigger than the stated square footage. Kitchen is completely stocked with anything one could need. The home is tastefully and nicely decorated (except for the creepy Indian!). The TV has Netflix and Hulu. There are pool toys to use in the very nice and very private pool. We were there when the cacti were still blooming and the javelinas and humming birds visited daily. Really like staying here!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was high quality. The owner was attentive but not over invasive. When emailed regarding questions, she responded in a timely manner.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not a wordy guy, and you can be sure that all was most wonderful if I am not mentioning any negatives and I am awarding 5-stars. It is a large guest house and is well-appointed and up-to-date. Your host is very pleasant and helpful. We didn't use the pool (too busy!) but it looked very nice. We were there to bird, and there were many hummingbirds and non, at the many feeders. It is well stocked with books and local information. And Quiet, as we wanted, yet a 3 min drive to shopping and the Interstate. Enjoy!

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.
