My husband and I are retired from the financial services industry and found Tucson to be the ideal place for us after spending most of our lives in the chilly Midwest. I am known to be a good source of restaurant recommendations and we continue to visit various places around the world to sample the local cuisine. I love the laid-back approach to life found in Tucson and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for the local attractions, flora and fauna.

Carol Morrison purchased this cottage in 2000

We love living here and enjoy sharing our beautiful mountain/golf course view with others. Our location is blissfully away from urban congestion, yet near enough to be convenient to restaurants, shops and Tucson attractions.

We had a fabulous stay and highly recommend this property to others. We felt very welcome. The Casita was decorated beautifully and very clean. Everything worked well. It was a great location for all activities in the Tucson area. The owners gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants and things to do, which we found very helpful since we had never been to Tucson before. They had maps and brochures on the property for our use. We really enjoyed the pool and patio. It was a perfect stay. We would like to go back again.

A Week Of Serenity

  • 5 of 5
After a week driving from Canada we thoroughly enjoyed the serenity of the casita. It's true, Carol the owner has stocked it with everything you can think of, Coke and water, grapes, cheeses and chocolate. A basket on the counter is loaded with cookie and snackbar packages, also microwaveable popcorn. There are lots of extra fluffy towels. No hotel we've ever been in has been so generous.

Unfortunately, the weather was cold when we were there but it was wonderfully sunny and we spent our week exploring. We especially enjoyed hiking in the hills above the casita among the millions of saguaro cacti. One day ten mule deer paraded right past our casita window, another night we briefly heard coyotes howling in the distance.

We drove to the city many times but, close by, we recommend the Golf Course's BBQ Restaurant and Daisy Mae's, a quaint and delicious steak house. The owners' house is laid out in such a way that you can enjoy the patio in privacy; they have many other patios of their own to use!

Carol and Ross are the owners and a wonderful couple who invited us for breakfast on our last day in Tucson. They are people you'd love to have as dear friends.

This is a wonderful option to being in a hotel. We highly recommend staying in this casita.

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our visit to Tucson. Carol and Ross were great hosts. The location was ideal for the holiday season. We had several dinners at the Marriot (Starr hotel) which were wonderful.
We visited the Desert Museum and Tubac at our hosts recommendation. They exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend the 'raptor' exhibit at the Desert Museum.

Hugs and Soda...and Cycling

  • 5 of 5
“La casita que me abraza”, the little house that hugs me, seemed like the perfect place to stay while driving through Tucson on my way back to Golden, Colorado from a business trip to southern California. I wasn't exactly looking for hugs though, but a small, comfortable place in Starr Pass, my favorite spot in the Tucson area to clear my head and unwind my body with a few cycling rides.

Just me and my bike. For cyclists, Tucson offers great riding. Almost within shouting distance from the Casita there is Gates Pass and the Tucson Mountain Park. This is an intermediate up-and-down ride on good roads with spectacular views in the midst of the natural desert ecosystem. Truly beautiful. It's the perfect ride for early mornings or late afternoons, when I got on the saddle. Returning early evening to the Casita I found the refrigerator well-stocked with beer and snacks, conveniently saving me a trip from this paradise to the local grocery store. The room itself is large and comfortable, and artistically decorated. As I settled in, I felt like a local.

Back to cycling…another ride, one more epic, is Mt. Lemmon, which I undertook the next day. Parking at the base, this one covered about 22 miles, nearly all climbing, with approximately 6000' of elevation gain. The road was in good shape with a wide shoulder area/bicycle lane. There were a few other cyclists and not much traffic. The views are immense on the ride up. It's amazing to experience the change from desert to mountain topography as you wind your way up.

Returning to the Casita, Owner and “neighbor” Ross was there to meet me with a Jack Daniels and soda. Not the best recovery food, but well deserved after my 3.5 hour masochistic effort. After a refreshing dip in the lap pool, the hugs continued as Ross’ better half, Carol invited me to their home for dinner and an opportunity to view her colorful collection of Mexican folk art and a brief educational overview of Día De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the Mexican holiday which was about to start the next day.

La Casita is the perfect place to enjoy a few days in the sun. At the risk of exposing this secret gem for all to know, I highly recommend staying here. Thanks again Carol and Ross...you're great people and best of hosts.

Owner's Response: We so appreciate our guests taking the time to share what they enjoy about our place. I have been asked about the cycling nearby and since I'm not a cyclist, I know others will benefit from John's description of the vistas and terrain nearby. Thanks, John for your info and effort.

5 Star resort-why stay in a hotel?

  • 5 of 5
This Casita is better when seen in person than described on this site. We could not have asked for a better place to enjoy our 1st visit to Tucsan, AZ after venturing out for the day, I enjoyed the pool and the outdoor shower after, as well as after changing into comfortable clothes. To be able to sit and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the birds, a few planes overhead, and watch the sun sets every night with a couple of beers, some snacks, and the sounds of a fantastic fountain on the patio.

My wife and I were thrilled to enjoy the beauty of the area, as well as the Coyotes close by early in the morning, we also were lucky enough to see a Bobcat walk across the road and pose for pictures, 1 night on the street we seen 2 Havelinas and have seen Mule Deer on the golf course from the picture window. It does not get any better than this and the Hosts were fantastic-especially Durga---a very content dog that LOVES attention. The 2 hosts were very informative and know the area very well--

If you want serentity--5 Star resort--friendly Hosts--beautiful surroundings--fantastic accomodations--total enjoyment--try this Casitia--we will again very soon--maybe in the Spring if all goes well for us to take another vacation and see the desert come to life.

Owner's Response: We are happy when our guests are happy. We try very hard to please our guests and help them in any way we can to make their Tucson experience a WOW! vacation. Of course it pleases us to hear nice comments from our guests, but more than that I feel like a comment about our guests is appropriate. We have been privileged to meet some of the nicest and most interesting people right in our own backyard. Their enjoyment at being here is balanced by our enjoyment of meeting them and traveling while staying home.

Car: necessary

Twenty Minute Drive from Tucson International Airport. Short, scenic drive over Gates Pass to Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and International Wildlife Museum. The drive over the pass displays the world's largest vista of Saguaro cacti, sometimes called sertries of the desert.

One of the most outstanding and historically significant attractions is the mission San Javier del Bac also called The White Dove of the Desert. It was built in the 1790s by Father Eusebio Kino on what is now an Pasqua Yacqui Indian Reservation. The restoration of the interior was recently completed by Euroean aritsans and is breathtakingly beautiful. The exterior renovation is almost complete.

Other Activities: Shopping, Biking, Wildlife Viewing

Golf: 25 golf courses in the Tucson metro area. Our property is located within the Starr Pass Resort and Country Club and borders on the golf course.

Ski: When there is snow on Mount Lemmon the ski lifts are open.
