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!

Comfy, adorable, convenient, safe, well-equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every day of our two weeks in this attractive casita. Day trips to the many attractions in the area were our activities plus walking to UA campus. In our casita we were content at nights to watch TV programs or movies. We slept well enjoying the cool fresh air through our opened windows. We ate lunch out and dinner in, buying our food at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and farmer's markets. If you eat out we highly recommend Cafe Poca Cosa for either lunch or dinner. Our interesting hosts, Bonnie and Steve accommodated our every need. We felt very much at home here.

Cozy Casita

  • 5 of 5

Cozy,clean and comfortable. Bonnie and Steve greeted us when we arrived and made us feel right at home. There were two bottles of decent wine, one red and one white waiting along with farm fresh eggs. Coffee,teas and a few staples and lots of spices were available if you felt like cooking in the well equipped kitchen. We ate at the island and thought there wasn't a table until we discovered it appears there is one that pulls out from the tv cabinet. The place is full of interesting southwestern artistic touches. The bathroom has plenty of towels, homemade soaps and a variety of things you might need, including sunscreen! We enjoyed waking up to the sun coming up over the tree full of ripening lemons! Even on the shortest day of the year we were able to enjoy the private back patio. The casita has its own laundry room! Bonnie and Steve were kind enough to lend us their bicycles and helmets. You can ride north on a roadside bike path that felt safe to a dedicated park bath that goes a long way along a currently dry river bed. It is possible to ride to the Tucson Mall or Trader Joes. There were two great Farmers Markets there on the Sunday we visited. Bring a backpack or two! The location of the casita is perfect if you like to explore as there are interesting attractions to the north, south, east and west. We loved coming back to "our" home each day and are so glad we didn't stay in a hotel. We will be back and highly recommend staying here. It is exactly as it appears on the website, including the little putting green!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful description of our property! I couldn't have written it better myself, and we appreciate when our guests are this enthused as to sit down and be so thorough in their review. We would hope that everyone who stays would feel as excited about the time they spend with us.

Warm & Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful five nights at Casa Bonita. The description and pictures are accurate. Location is in town relatively close to the University. The house is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is the best equipped of any place that we have stayed. While there are many good places to eat within a short drive we chose to fix most of our own meals. Filled the days with hikes to the east and west of Tucson and also visited the Mission. Love the desert late in the afternoon. Bonnie and Steve were gracious hosts and a delight to talk with.
