About Gary or Carole Sugarman

Gary is a counselor/psychotherapist in private practice. Carole was a Special Ed teacher for many years. Together, we have been landlords for nearly ten years, very much enjoying the tenants we serve and enjoying providing folks with beautiful, peaceful places for them to call home! We have been grateful that our tenants have found us to be as fair, honest, responsive and caring as we try to be. And we feel blessed with so many wonderful tenants! And now this is a new adventure, to share Casa Serena with a bunch of new wonderful people, excited to be able to give them, as well, a beautiful peaceful place for them to call home, while they are visiting Tucson! ( And we have several other beautiful peaceful getaways in central Tucson for you to consider as well! )

Gary or Carole Sugarman purchased this house in 2004

Why Gary or Carole Sugarman chose Tucson

In the over 20 years we've lived in Tucson, Sam Hughes, the charming Historic neighborhood just to the east of the University of Arizona campus, has always been our favorite neighborhood. With Sam Hughes Village ( where much loved Rincon Market is like a community center of sorts )at the center of its square mile, Sam Hughes has always felt to us like a warm, friendly, charming, laid-back village (right in the heart of Tucson)!Over these last 5 1/2 years we have loved living here! And it felt like a natural extension - of the joy we have been having in being landlords over these last 10 years - to open Casa Serena, that folks might get to experience both this beautiful home and this wonderful neighborhood which we find to be such a treasure!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gary and Carole, we wanted to express what a nice time we've had in Tucson, utilizing your "Casa Serena" vacation rental! Great spacious floor plan, wonderfully furnished with double vanities in bathroom, king bed {or 2 twins}, big screen TV in living room and kitchenette with microwave - just what we needed! Could not beat the value and the charming host and hostess - certainly 5 stars from our perspective! We'd highly recommend it to any prospective guests! - Paul and Angela from Buckeye, Az.

Great Apartment, Great Location, and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5
In the past I've always stayed up near River Road, but when I decided at the last minute to go escape the cold winter and spend a week cycling in Tucson I was lucky enough to find that this gem, Casa Serena, was available for a short term February rental, thanks to a cancellation. The Sam Hughes neighborhood is a great, historic neighborhood just east of the University. Even though Casa Serena is on the rear of the owners' house, it is very private and Carole and Gary have paid meticulous attention to detail in furnishing it. Although I didn't have any specific requests, it is clear that they are the type of owners who will go out of their way to try and provide what you need.

The huge soaking tub was great after long bike rides out to the north and west of town. There's a big comfortable king size bed, wireless internet, washer and dryer and cable (all the comforts of home!). Especially nice is the covered deck out back with deck furniture. Location is terrific, with the U of A only about a half dozen blocks away. The famous Rincon Market (which hopefully will reopen soon following last year's fire) is nearby and is a great place for breakfast.

It didn't matter to me but the cooking facilities are limited--microwave, toaster oven and hot plate. There is a refrigerator and freezer. But if you want to do full cooking that is the only drawback to Casa Serena. As long as that is not important to you, this is a delightful, quiet place--convenient to the heart of Tucson.

Wonderful remodeled cottage with all conveniences!

  • 5 of 5
The owners accommodated us last-minute when we realized we had to stay longer than expected in Tucson. We felt so at-home in this beautiful little attached cottage. Quiet, modern and newly remodeled, where all our needs were met. Wish we had had more time to enjoy the patio/deck. It was so cozy, clean and convenient. Thanks so much - we are repeat customers from one of the owners' previous properties. Very kind people. Rosa and Paul Robinson

Awesome,Amazing,Comfortable, Quite and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at another one of the owner's properties and needed to extend my stay for a few days. They offered this gem up and I was floored when I arrived. I had just had a great week long stay in another one of their units and so happy with that stay that I did not think it could get any better - well it did! The owners maintain their properties as if they lived in them. They truly seem to care about their guests experience - something you do not seem to get these days - true care! I would recommend this property and the other properties the owners have available for your stay. I kind of hate to publicly put so much good stuff out about their properties because I want to be selfish and keep these finds to myself but the owners are really good people and deserve the praises contained here in.

Just bring your food and you are set. Could not think of anything else I would need for my stay. More space than I could have ever used, a nice BIG soaking tub, comfortable LARGE bed, closet space galore. I could write for hours! Check out the pictures - they really do not do the property justice - it is so much more than what is pictured. You will be really impressed not only by the property but also by the owners! Truly wonderful, caring and thoughtful owners - give them a shot - you will be happy your did.

Perfect location, perfect place

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Casa Serena enormously, and were actually a little overwhelmed with the amount of space (we live in a small apartment). Every detail was as promised and we couldn't be more pleased. Of course, the location was a huge bonus. We could easily walk to the Rincon Cafe, which was especially unusual, since Tucson is not a walking city. This is our second rental with Carole and Gary and they never fail to treat us like long-absent relatives.

City living at its best

  • 4 of 5
This is a very nice apartment. It is close enough to U of A to walk or bike. Gary and Carole have a couple of bikes for guests. There are restaurants within walking distance. It is very peaceful and you can forget you are even in a city if you choose to. The extra small room off the bedroom was very useful to me. We brought my sewing machine and they provided an extra table and I was able to work on my quilting while my husband was off at U of A. Gary and Carole couldn't have been more accommodating.

The kitchen is somewhat of a challenge. I would not plan to actually cook meals there but it is very useful for re-heating restaurant food or pre-cooked food from the grocers. Most travelers prefer to eat out anyway but for long term stays we like to have a homecooked meal a couple of times a week. We gave up after a couple of tries.

Other than the kitchen we absolutely loved the apartment and would highly recommed it to anyone looking for an apartment in Tucson.

Casa Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here. It started with Carole meeting us at the door and showing us the place. We chose Casa Serena for it's location. We used to live in Tucson and the Sam Hughes neighborhood is peaceful, very central and safe. It is close to everything. Casa Serena has everything you need. We had no need for a full kitchen since we were dining with friends every night. Casa Serena is clean and comfortable and so much more pleasant than staying at a hotel. It is a great little getaway and we would stay there again without hesitation. Summing it up, we would have to say that Gary and Carole were the most pleasant part of this stay. They make you feel very welcome and in the event you would need something, you know you could ask them and it would never be a problem. I would recommend this property without any hesitation.
