Pretty House

  • 5 of 5

In Spanish, Casa Bonita means "pretty house" and this little casita just north of the campus of the University of Arizona is indeed a pretty house. I recently spent nearly a week in Casa Bonita, with summer monsoon thunderstorms arriving daily, and it was the quintessential Tucson experience. Tucked into the front yard of a similarly styled, but much more grand, southwest style home in Tucson, this casita had everything I was looking for. A quiet street, a spacious layout for 1-2 persons, a very comfortable bed and soft linens, a full kitchen, and a decor that reminded me of everything I loved about living in Tucson decades ago. My hosts, Bonnie and Steve, who live in the grand house, gave me a thorough orientation on the first morning that I arrived. They had wine and water chilling in the refrigerator, along with a half-dozen farm fresh eggs! But after that I felt like I was living in my own home, and almost forgot that I even had neighbors! That's my kind of host. If you are looking for peaceful Tucson living for a few days, Casa Bonita is the pretty house for you.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well appointed, comfortable and centrally located. We also enjoyed the private outdoor space under the shade of the mesquite tree. The owners were friendly and helpful. We would be glad to stay here again in sunny Tucson!

Perfect Casita!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous find! We enjoyed a week in Steve and Bonnie's casita and are definitely planning on staying here again when we visit Tucson. The casita is spacious, well appointed, and perfect for two. We cooked in the generous kitchen and ate meals on our private patio, enjoyed TV a few evenings, and had fun running and exploring the area around the University (only a few blocks away). Bonnie and Steve were fantastic hosts and had a whole list of great spots to hike, visit, and eat during our stay. They were also very gracious in giving us our space and privacy as well - really perfect hosts! We can't thank you enough for our wonderful time in Tucson!

Great Casita, Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. It's spacious, beautifully decorated, and extremely comfortable. The full kitchen is thoughtfully laid out and well stocked with supplies, appliances, and tools. There's even a washer and dryer. Bonnie is very welcoming and easily accessible if you need anything. The location is quiet. Highly recommended!
