The Guest house is furnished in comfortable western style, with a full kitchen, down to the last detail for fixing your holiday dinner. All you bring are the groceries. Front porch, with swing to sit and watch the sun set or read a Louis L’Amour western novel or book on Arizona and the old west from the Guest house library. Outside you will find wonderful views of the Catalina and Tortolita mountains, spacious patios with hot tub, fire pit, exceptional barbecue area and fountains. Hot tub, fully enclosed for privacy in gazebo that opens onto patio with waterfall and trickling stream flowing down to the pond.

For the golfer: Golf on one of the many public or private golf courses. Arthur Pack Public Golf Course is 10 minutes from the Bunkhouse. Tucson is home to the World Golf Accenture Match Play, which is held at Dove Mountain in February only 10 minutes away from the Bunkhouse.

For the hiker: Tucson has an incredible county, state, and national parks hiking trail system which can be reviewed on web pages for Pima County, Arizona State Parks, and the National Parks. Call for webpages and other information.

About Property Owner

My little Ranchita suits me just fine. It seems like I am out in the big wide open desert, but I am really in town, with all the big-city conveniences at my fingertips.

Property Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Property Owner chose Arizona

Three years ago, we built the guest house. Last year, Mom lived there for two months while she nursed a sick horse back to health. She enjoyed the simplicity and thought what a great place to vacation. Now, I rent the bunkhouse to a few well-chosen guests, who seem to enjoy it as much as Mom did when she stayed there.

a secluded desert retreat

  • 5 of 5

Greer provided a terrific stay for us. Having lived in Tucson a few decades ago, we wanted to reexperience the old flavor, when Tucson was a smaller, quieter, more rugged place. Staying out in the desert in Greer's bunkhouse was perfect. The bunkhouse was much larger than expected, rustic but well appointed, very comfortable, and surrounded by the beautiful desert we remembered. A great value! We felt secluded but Greer's home was right across the driveway and we had easy accessibility to grocery stores and civilization in general. The whole place felt welcoming and very secure. A perfect combination!! Wonderful desert walks and hiking in the Tortolitas (and all the other mountains surrounding Tucson) were welcome additions to our visit.

Greer was an attentive yet never intrusive host. We will definitely call Greer again when we next visit Tucson.

Great out of the way spot, but close to everything

  • 4 of 5

We rented the bunkhouse for 10 days, found it to be quite comfortable and homey. Kitchen was well stocked, good bed. Greer was friendly and welcoming, very accommodating of our dog.

Great rental, secure and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the bunkhouse at Greer's for 6 weeks. We especially liked the layout. It had a great room, with the bathroom off it. Through the bathroom was the bedroom. When we had guests sleeping in the great room, this gave us the privacy we needed.

The bunkhouse was very clean when we arrived, and is well stocked with the cooking basics and towels. The seating was comfortable, which was important to us because we struggled with that at our rental in 2015.

Last, but certainly not least are the people. Greer is very accommodating and helpful. The other people renting on her property was very nice to be around and quiet.

Also we loved Tucson. There are so many quality places to visit. The great outdoors, art, music and dining are all covered here.

We didn't want to leave!

Top notch hospitality. Immaculate and roomy surroundings. All the comforts of home and more. Very convenient to the airport and centrally located to the attractions Tucson and vicinities have to offer. It goes without saying the weather was great.

Beautiful!!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bunkhouse is beautiful and fully equipped. If you don't feel like going out to eat, there is a well supplied kitchen to use. We felt at home away from home. The setting is great. We would highly recommend it to everyone.

The bunk house was Home within minutes!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic vacation home away from home! It was clean and well equiped. From kitchen, washer/dryer, hot tub,and nice linens. The owner is very warm and welcoming, she was helpful with things in the area and provided a lot of information. You can be as laid back or as busy as you want to be. The home was cozy and quite, we listen to the coyote at night and many birds. The home was in a perfect location. We were minutes from stores and restaurants but you would never know they were that close. Also under thirty minutes to an hour to many State and National parks. We did some awesome hikes. Many outdoor opportunities in this area. The other Guests on the property were wonderful as well and we look forward to getting to know them all better in the future. We only had one question when we arrived home......and that was "why didn't we stay LONGER"!
