Great property- peaceful among nature
The casita met all our needs and more. It was spacious, had a great view of the mountains and nature was right outside your door. We enjoyed the watching the numerous birds including a beautiful red cardinal each morning. Hosts Wayne and Marilyn are available should any issues arise and were helpful in suggesting places to visit during our three week stay. We would highly recommend this property.

This stay was just what we were looking for in a quiet, peaceful casita. The views were amazing morning, afternoon, evening and nights. We were there during a monsoon and it was so gorgeous the lightening. There's such a natural setting around the home. It's quiet, comfortable and the owners very friendly. We recommend the home and would stay again.
We loved meeting you and thank you for choosing the Casita for your Tucson stay !
We want to thank you for being such nice guests and taking care of the Casita ! Come see us again soon !
Lovely, quiet, and relaxing!
This is our second stay at Casita Naranja and we will be back! A perfectly appointed, spacious, comfortable and quiet place to relax in the hills of Tucson. Close to everything yet a world away. Marilyn and Wayne could not be nicer or more accommodating.
A perfect spot in suburban Tucson
The casita is exactly as shown in the pictures. We really liked the covered patio, great view and watching the birds and quail. The owners are close by but unobtrusive yet very helpful with information about the area. We hiked in both Saguaro east and west, and Sabino Canyon. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is also great. We would rent here again.
Thank you so much for the nice review on our Casita . You were wonderful guests and we enjoyed having you here for your stay in Tucson ! You were here at the perfect time to see the desert in full bloom ! It was a banner year for cactus blossoms and colors ! Come back soon !
Wonderful Tucson Oasis
We could not be happier with the Casita and the welcome from Marilyn and Wayne. We used the full kitchen and the back TV "bonus room" every day. The outdoor patio has a beautiful view of the mountains and an entertaining view of the birds, rabbits and chipmunks enjoying the bird feeder. Morning coffees on the patio are relaxing and fun! This location is perfect for visiting Mount Lemmon and Catalina State Park. Both locations allow dogs on the trails. Also very close to Saguaro National Park, Bear Canyon and Sabino Canyon. Can't say enough about this casita that was perfect for our stay. Paul and Michelle S.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Casita ! We loved having you here and hope to see you again soon !
