Felt like home. Hosts became friends. Charming casita in beautiful setting. Grocery stores and shopping 2 miles away. Across the street from The Catalina Mountains, hiking trails, etc. Would recommend to anyone.

Thanks Lee, Laura, son, and doggies!

Quiet, comfortable space!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, nicely detailed studio. Kitchenette is well equipped for simple meal preparation. Very quiet neighborhood. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Close to shops and grocery stores. Not far from several trail systems on the west and north sides of Tucson. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone or a couple seeking a quiet, relaxing space to stay in Tucson.

Little gem in the foothills

  • 5 of 5

If you are tired of trying to find "small and charming" in the sea of "spacious and luxurious" bigger-than-needed guesthouses, this is the place for you. This place is PERFECT for one or two people, has everything you need for comfort and quiet, including a small, enclosed, shaded patio. Owners Laura and Lee are wonderful hosts, available for any needs (of which I had none), and provided a very clean and bright, tastefully decorated, comfortable place to enjoy the beauty of the Catalina foothills. It's very close to Tohono Chul and grocery stores, and not far from Catalina State Park which is VERY worth a visit. I stayed for a month and LOVED it. I recommend it highly and will do so to all my family and friends who plan to visit this very beautiful part of Tucson.

A great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fine thirty day stay. Gracious hosts provided a well stocked guest house with private parking and patio. The large lot was landscaped with many types of cacti, as well as lots of other native plants. Excellent communication with owners before, during, and at the end of my stay. The property is in a great, safe area, and is close to a large choice of stores and major routes. The property is also close to some fine hiking areas. The view from the rental is a vey nice one of the close by Catalina mountains.

I would book another stay in a heartbeat.

Wonderful short stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place, had everything my husband and I needed, very clean. We enjoyed having an outside patio in the garden. Very friendly owners gave us great advice on where to eat and what to do.

Clean, Nice, Friendly, Quaint, Efficient & Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

A senior couple of snowbirds who enjoyed our month long stay here. Nice neighborhood, friendly accommodating host, nice clean place, a little small, but quaint very efficient floor plan, with everything you need including a very comfortable queen bed. Nice outdoor space with private courtyard and outdoor table & chairs with umbrella were nice for reading on sunny afternoons. Can park you car right next to entry. Very nice and all inclusive church next door which we really enjoyed, even made new friends there who gave us a lot of tips about how to visit and live in Tucson. Very handy location with stores, shopping malls and restaurants near. Would stay here again. A good value for your money.
