Awesome casita in the foothills

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jim’s place for a week. Perfect for a couple, the serene casita has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There was no stove, but a hot plate and small refrigerator for light meals. So many good restaurants in Tucson that cooking isn’t really necessary! Walking distance to a shopping mall with a grocery store. We enjoyed the courtyard with a small table for coffee and We also had access to Jim’s beautiful backyard. Jim was available if we needed anything, but we had all the privacy we could want. We will definitely be making this a yearly visit. Thanks Jim!

Beautiful home in the Catalina Foothills

  • 4 of 5

We found this location and home to be perfect for our needs. We enjoyed the many close sites to see, very close to shoppng, churches, tourist areas, etc. The home is very beautiful with modern amenities. The pool area is very nice. We enjoyed the hardscape area, complete with grill, patio tables, etc. Jim, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating to us. I would recommend this place for a couple.

Met Jim upon arrival and was given the golden tour. Very nice home.

The accommodations were spacious for the two of us and we had plenty of room in the smaller fridge. All the comforts of home. Especially loved the courtyard area. Great location for where we wanted to be. Easy access to any and all restaurants. Easy drive to Mt. Lemmon which is breathtaking in its own right. Hiking trails are just minutes away. I would have liked a better mountain view I guess but really after the first day it was no big deal. The mountains are seconds from the door. Jim had great recommendations for nearby restaurants and he was spot on. Vivace was great. We found a super place for breakfast which had the most amazing and eclectic menu I've ever seen called Baja Cafe'. This place just was beyond.

I'd definitely go back to this Guest house but one piece of advise Jim.

Big screen !!!! Watching the NCAA BB playoffs on the computer monitor wasn't easy. Thanks again for everything....

Perfectly situated escape in the foothills of Tucson.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay in Jim's guest house. The house is perfectly situated in the Catalina foothills, only a mile from excellent restaurants and a gourmet market. Bike lanes abound and no less than four phenomenal trailheads were within a 15 minute drive for those wanting to see the area on foot. Jim was a generous and thoughtful host. His home is exquisitely designed with a lovely shared courtyard and a pool that would be perfect for the summer months. We cannot wait to return!

Loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here instead of a hotel while in Tucson for girls college softball. Even though about a half hour drive from the fields I would not of changed a thing. So much better than a hotel. Unit was very, very clean. Location for various hiking trails was good. Also, an upscale outdoor shopping mall only a mile away and an easy walk. Location very quiet and we always felt safe. Jim was very nice and informative. I would not hesitate to stay here again and hopefully will next year when we return for softball.
