LA CASITA DE TUCSON - A UNIQUE PRIVATE GETAWAY W/POOL & SPA

Tucson House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

La Casita de Tucson is a unique private getaway for two adults. Our guesthouse includes a hot tub & counter-current pool and a large deck for picnics and sunbathing. Great view of the Catalina Mts from the pool area.

Located in the foothills of the Tucson Mountains, our guests feel the spaciousness and serenity of the Sonoran Desert and enjoy the beauty of our surrounding mountains and star-filled nights. But we are only 15 minutes from downtown and 25 minutes or less to the University of Arizona and several golf courses, including Quarry Pines & Starr Pass. Silverbell, a well-maintained muni, is only 10 minutes away. Good restaurants are about 15 minutes down the road.

The furnishings and decor are definitely Southwestern comfortable. The main room has a high-end home theater with 56' HDTV, Blue Ray DVD player, and built in surround sound. Here you will find an extensive library of CD's and DVD's. WiFi, of course.

The bathroom has a beautifully tiled walk-in shower. Fresh linens & towels provided.

La Casita has its own backyard, patio, and BBQ and our guests enjoy interesting grounds, including cactus gardens, a rose garden, a mission fountain, and three patios with many strange and fascinating plants. Laundry can easily be arranged. The washer/dryer are in the main residence. Just ask.

La Casita is perfect for those who want to visit Southern Arizona's many attractions, such as Bisbee, Tombstone, Titan Missile Site, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Air and Space Museum and our excellent history museums that illustrate the area's rich Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Anglo heritage. Several fine Indian Casinos and many hiking trails are nearby. For our recommendations, go to our SouthernArizonaGuide.com.

Owner Jim Gressinger is a retired newspaper publisher.

Ms. Karen & I retired to Tucson in 2003. Currently we publish Southern Arizona Guide, a content-rich website with over 80 dining reviews; over 50 original videos about the most interesting people & places in Southern Arizona; our recommendations for the best things to see & do; plus lot of local history & cultural heritage. Last year we had over 150,000 visitors to our website.

We do have advertisers on our website. Our rule is simple. If we cannot wholeheartedly recommend your establishment to our friends & family, you cannot advertise on Southern Arizona Guide.

Our dining reviews are as objective as we can make them. Seldom does a restaurant owner or manager know that we've been to his or her establishment until a week or two later when we publish our review on Southern Arizona Guide or on our TucsonCitizen.com Southern Arizona Guide blog.

I almost always take other with me to do a review. The deal is simple. I pay for the meals. They each have to order something different so we can sample a broad spectrum of menu items.

On our Southern Arizona Guide, there are restaurants, attractions, and other places that we DO NOT recommend. For the benefit of our website visitors, we are serious critics, not like you will find on TripAdvisor, etc.

Our casita is roomy & comfortable. It has its own back yard with cactus garden. But our guests can enjoy all of our other gardens such as the rose garden, and the anniversary garden.

Our guests have no sense that there is a major metropolitan area anywhere nearby. Yet, it takes only 15 minutes to get to the Historic District of Downtown Tucson and 22 minutes to the University of Arizona.

When we have no guests, the Casita is our den and home theater. Our guests get to take advantage of a very high end music & video system.

Another advantage of staying at La Casita is that very few locals know the area as well as we do. That's not bragging. It's our job. Our guests take advantage of our local knowledge. The best hiking trails, the best museums, the best art galleries and performing arts, etc. We love sharing our local knowledge. It's what we do.

The casita is beautiful, and the desert landscape and mountain views were spectacular! Jim and Karen were friendly, helpful and gracious, and made sure we had every comfort available to us. Buddy did a great job of keeping the coyotes and critters at bay. The accommodations greatly exceeded our expectations!

You can ride right to the Sweetwater Preserve (1.6 miles away) for single track mountain biking! The photos do justice to the casita and Buddy the dog is even more charming in person.

We stayed here for five nights in February, 2013. It is a lovely place with lots of room. The property is also nice in the foothills above Tuscon and next door to the national park. We used it as a base for touring around Tucson. The hosts, Jim and Karen were most gracious. They are very knowledgeable about the area and provided excellent recommendations on things to do and see. My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves here.

We highly recommend this property for it's beauty and for the friendliness of the owners/hosts..We were made to feel extremely welcome as was our little dog who was totally intrigued with the owners dog . This property is in an extremely quiet yet close location to many attractions. Highly recommended as the place to stay if you want quiet and private.
