Wonderful Home Away From Home
We had originally only planned to rent this wonderful property for 3 days, but when our plans changed we contracted Todd and Stacey to extend to a full week. They were very helpful and quick with their responses in that regard and in answering questions about the amenities and surrounding areas.
We arrived late on our first day, but Todd and Stacey has provided the garage code to allow easy entry. We loved the extra touch of having some items stocked in the fridge, and snacks on the counter to make the start of our vacation perfect.
The house itself is gorgeous. Large living room and dining room areas, and a stunning kitchen. I'm still talking about the beautiful copper farmhouse sink! Granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances, with excellent quality pots and pans and lots of bonus kitchen gadgets that you don't expect in a rental property.
Loved the pool and outdoor space. We got a lot of use out of the grill and outdoor tables. I would recommend spending the extra money to have the pool heated for the week, well worth it (at least in September/early October). The pool had 4 lounge chairs and 2 sun umbrellas, there is also a table that seats 6, a high top table for 4 and then a lounge area with a couch and a couple of chairs - plenty of seating and relaxing areas!
For visitor's to Tucson, I'd recommend a hike to Sabino Canyon, take the tram up and then hike down Telephone Line Trail - just bring plenty of water! We also visited a day spa in the area, Gadabout Spa. Wonderful service, great manicures, pedicures, facials and massages. We loved the house so much that we didn't end up eating out as much as we had anticipated, but one place we loved was El Charro - the tamales were great! I'd also recommend a visit to the St. Phillips Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings.
Thanks again to Todd and Stacey for a wonderful Home Away from Home - we can't wait to visit again!
