About Patricia Scott (520) 400-5158

Chris and I live on the same property about 400 feet away from the Casita, the Casita and our home cannot be seen from each other. Chris, my husband is a custom home builder so both homes were custom built by us. We have lived here for 43 and it just gets better every day. We have one horse and two mules Chris does pack trips as a hobby. This property was part of a 1000 acre working ranch, the old ranch house is still being lived in and has been recently re-modeled. It is a beautiful place to live We have 2 sons 2 daughter-in-laws and3 Grandchildren.

This property is in a unique area, with amazing views, peace and quiet yet not to far from everything (11 Miles to Tucson) there are hiking, biking, and horse trails, abundant wildlife all right at your finger-tips. This is the perfect place to kick your feet up and relax or go for a walk in the wash and find Indian pottery, or visit an old homestead.

What makes this cottage unique

The first time I saw this area it was instant love, there are 4 Mtn. ranges all visible from any room in the Casita, amazing sun-sets from the balcony, we always see wildlife, and above all the serenity that this area brings to you. Not to mention the beautiful hand crafted touches that the Casita offers, open beams in the kitchen, dining and living room the beautiful stone fireplace, have all be chosen and hand crafted and built by us.

We'll be back next January!

  • 5 of 5

I've always wanted to stay in a pueblo-style home and this Casita was NOT a disappointment. But beyond the wonderful accommodations, we really enjoyed being surrounded by beautiful desert and mountains and being able to relax on any of three sides of the Casita and enjoy the views and peace and relaxation! My husband and I really grew to love the desert! Thank you both for your hospitality and always making sure that everything was taken care of. Two months VERY well spent!!

Great Place for a Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay and for such a reasonable price! My husband & I spent 4 nights here during the month of April and would highly recommend this rental property to anyone planning on staying in the Tucson area. After a day of hiking or golfing we couldn't wait to get back to our little casita and relax with a drink in one of the many outdoor sitting areas. Our favorite spot was in the two chairs under the flag that overlooked the neighboring properties. So peaceful and quiet, and such beautiful sunsets. This casita has everything from a well stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, 2 full bathrooms, a comfy king bed in the master, not to mention the extras like the flashlights, telescopes, spices, soaps, toothpaste, toilet paper, detergents, etc... Not sure we've ever stayed in a place that supplies so much, certainly not for this price! Thanks so much Pat for the treat we discovered upon arrival and for the wonderful homey accommodation. As far as the 10 minute drive into the place on a dirt road, I don't really feel it would be a problem for any type of vehicle as long as you take it slow, and as far as I'm concerned, it's worth going twice as far on a not so perfect road just to stay at a place like this!

Beautiful Casita, gorgeous sunsets, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This casita will always be dear to our heart. Pat and Chris were wonderful hosts and always quick to meet any of our requests. It is a very quiet location with beautiful sunsets enjoyed every evening over a margarita. The casita was charming and clean inside with many unique features. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen met all our needs. There is a farmers' market nearby where we got wonderful flour tortillas and fresh roasted green chiles every week. The only drawback was the 2 1/2 mile dirt road to the casita. If this rental was on a paved road it would easily be worth $1000.00 more a month.

Owner's Response: We Thank You for your your kind words, as posted, the Casita is on 1-1/2 miles of dirt road and at times the road does get a little rough that is why people come to the Casita it is the true ranch experience, but not many people seem to mind they understand before hand that there is a dirt road. Other then that 99.9% of everyone that has stayed falls in love with the Casita and always returns. We Thank You again for your for your kind words. Pat - Chris and all the ranch animals :)
