A beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bonita couldn't be lovelier. Everything is put together beautifully with an obvious intent to make you feel at home. We loved sitting on our private patio each afternoon. Having our own laundry facilities just off the patio was an unexpected benefit. The kitchen and bath have everything you could need, just like at home. We loved our afternoon kitty visits. Steve and Bonnie were exceedingly good hosts and even lent us their bicycles for the duration of our stay. The Casa is within walking distance of the University without being too close. (About a10 block walk.)

We're planning on staying again next time we visit our daughter in Tucson. You can believe all the great reviews on this listing. 💖𵠊

Historic Charmer

Great stay. Super Casita with everything you would want. Pulled out of driveway and turned right on Mountain Ave and I was at the UofA bookstore in 2 minutes. Perfect location for a visit with my daughter.

Great Tucson rental near the U of A

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place that was quiet, private, reasonably priced, and close to the University. Case Bonita is all those things and more. You have access to everything you need, including a well-appointed kitchen. Bonnie and Steve are great hosts and were very helpful during my stay. I have already made my next reservation at Casa Bonita, and I look forward to that trip.

My home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

You know that feeling you get when you find something really great? This is how I feel when I stay at Casa Bonita. Bonnie and Steve are the perfect hosts and their home has all of the niceties that you would get at any 5 star hotel. Prepare to be spoiled, farm fresh eggs, good wine and handmade soaps are just a couple of the many personal touches they provide. The house is furnished with comfy furniture, nice and clean appliances and just about anything you could possibly need during your stay. Located within walking distance to the University of Arizona campus in a nice quiet and safe area of town.

During my stay I had a car accident that extended my stay for another 3 days and Bonnie was gracious enough to convert my daily rate into a weekly rate. They were also very helpful in my quest to find a reputable car dealership and other information about Tucson car buying.

I will be back when it's time to move my college student back home and any other time I find myself in Tucson.

Thank you Bonnie and Steve!

Colorful, Delightful, and Comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the top two VRBO's I have used. The property is exceptionally maintained, has the regional decor and flair, and was the best stocked with amenities ever. Bonnie and Steve were exceptional hosts. They were always available to answer questions on anything, from golf, to local restaurants, to why the bees were hovering and protecting the water feature. They were not obtrusive, but so friendly and accommodating whenever we just wanted to chat, about whatever. We are looking at going back to Tucson for Thanksgiving, and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if we do. Bonnie is also being very helpful in locating other properties in case more of our family wish to come as well. Thanks again too Steve for the clubs, didn't keep him out of the sand traps, but, it is the way of golf!!!

Owner's Response: Chris and Mike were a delight to host at our casita. They were friendly, conscientious, neat and we so enjoyed meeting them and welcome them back at any time. We're always here to answer questions and assure that our guests enjoy Tucson and are comfortable in their surroundings, and we're especially happy to be rated among the top of their VRBO experiences. Thank you!
