Why Joanne Kerrihard chose Santa Rita Park
This adjacent property with neglected casita sat vacant for 4 years. I love renovating old homes and creating a unique living space.

Lovely, quiet, and close to downtown
I stayed here a week while exploring Tucson. I really loved the decor and it was a perfect size for one or two people (one in my case). The owner lives on the adjoining property, and so I felt like I could reach out whenever I needed, but she never intruded. The kitchen had lots of amenities, including pots and pans, fridge, microwave, and oven, so I was able to cook meals. The location is just a 10 minute walk to downtown and an easy drive to other parts of Tucson. All in all a great stay!
Mi casita is very nice
The place is very clean and functional. Sadly the weekend we were in Tucson was cold and we didn't get to enjoy the outside amenities. We had a little difficulty finding the place but once we did it was centrally placed for our activities. Joanne is very personable and I enjoyed exchanging texts with her. She lives next to the property and gave us a little tour when we checked in. She also provided a few "welcome" treats, fruit, etc. upon our arrival. Other than that we never saw her although she would have made herself available if we needed anything. Appreciated the secure, off street parking, also, since we were not familiar with the Tucson area. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Quaint, Relaxing, and Quiet
We had a lovely stay at this casita. Joanne takes great pride in her casita. The unit is comfortable and relaxing. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets are the thickest. The towels are thick and luxurious as well. The seating area is perfect, a comfy couch and chair. The kitchen has all the necessities. Upon arrival we were treated with scones, oranges, bananas, and coffee. A wonderful surprise and just goes to show that Joanne appreciates her renters. The wifi is excellent and the TV is super easy to use! The outside patio is lovely and had it been warmer we would have spent more time out there! A really nice perk is the secure, covered car port. Joanne has thought of everything. Another nice perk is she supplies dish soap, laundry soap, bath wash, shampoo, and cream rinse! If you are looking for a relaxing stay in Tucson this is the place. We had to leave early due to heater issues in our home in Albuquerque but when we return to Tucson we will definitely look at staying here again.
Adorable Casita nestled away in Tucson
If your travel plans bring you to Tucson and you want to experience it as a local... this is the place for you! Close to everything, yet private. The Artist's eye and attention to Southwest details is evident at every turn. Both indoors and out!
Love, love, loved it!
I'm already making plans for my return visit!!
Perfect Little Getaway
Mi Casita was so cozy and had everything we needed for a wonderful getaway. Got a lot of walking in around the historic neighborhood. Really enjoyed staying there. Joanne was a great host!
A wonderful retreat!
Mi Casita is everything we look for in a vacation rental. It is comfortable, expertly appointed to accomodate any need, and has a homey and relaxed ambiance. We experienced a feeling of seclusion as well as close convenience to the heart of Tucson. Joanne is a great host: there if you need her and invisible if you prefer solitude. The neighborhood is very quiet and we felt perfectly secure at all times. The far off train whistles we heard a few times added to our enjoyment. Off street, locked parking is certainly a bonus that you don't ordinarily find. All in all, a perfect week in Tucson!
