Guestbook comments from the manager

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Our first time using non-hotel accommodations in Tucson was great, thanks to Amber's "Groovy Pad". The place was spotlessly clean, beds were so comfortable, lots of fluffy towels, kitchen essentials provided, location was great for everything from shopping to eateries. The upstairs/downstairs arrangement was ideal. Everything we needed, with lots of charming touches. We'll be back again--already booked!

Just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at this property with our two little girls and our exchange student. The property is nice and clean with a fun 60s decor. Our girls loved their room and the toys and coloring books which kept them occupied after our hiking adventures. We loved the welcome tray with a bottle of wine, crackers & candy especially since we got in late at night and a glass of wine was just what we needed. Master bedroom was spacy and bed/pillows comfortable. The only thing i would recommend would be having a pullout couch downstairs which would make it more comfortble if you have extra people.

We enjoyed our stay at the Groovy Pad and will book it again the next time we are in Tucson. Very clean and well maintained. Quiet neighborhood close to shops and restaurants.

The "Groovy Pad" was perfect for us. It was super clean. It had everything we needed in the kitchen. The linens were brand new. The space was enough for two people. It was in a great location. We were 3 bicycle minutes for the Tucson Bicycle Loop. We loved it!

Three ladies booked Amber's awesome condo when the weather was pristine and the crowds hadn't as yet descended.

Not only was the place immaculate, it was so smartly decorated in a 1960's vibe.

Lime green, bright coral, yellow accents and Amber made sure we had everything necessary for our stay.

The kitchen is fully loaded with all the amenities, there were plenty of clean towels (good ones, not shabby) and every light in the place worked.

We found the location, with a garage to be very nicely located. Only a few minutes to great hiking in Sabino Canyon and another short drive to downtown.

The place was quiet and overall...very accommodating.

Eat at Maynard's in a former train depot or, at Le Buzz - excellent. By all means go to the Desert Art Museum of Tuscon right around the corner from the condo and stop by Tanque Verde Ranch for a stroll. Enjoy the Saguaro National Park which isn't far and, if you can go in February when the Gem and Mineral Show is open, haul home some outstanding samples of beautiful minerals from around the world.

Overall, Tucson is a little gem in the desert and our stay and Amber's place was "Cool, man, cool".

The groovy pad was perfect for our 4-day stay. The furniture (including the beds) and the decor are fantastic. The kitchen is well stocked and the little extras like the toiletries and welcome basket made things extra special. Thanks Amber!
