Beautiful room and setting.
We arrived at 6:00 p.m. and the sun had just hit the mountain just to the side of the house... absolutely beautiful. The room was very nicely decorated and had a refrigerator, freezer, microwave, coffee machine with a great selection of coffees and tea bags. They offered a selection of movies along with the TV, and WIFI. The garden was lit up at night around the pool which was right outside our door. There is a private gate entrance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Such a pleasure to us as renters when visitors can incorporate the beauty of this setting and take it with them!
nice private place
very private, quiet, nice hot shower. 5 stars all around
Thank you for embracing the quietness and beauty of our place. Hot showers, as well as access to laundry and barbecue, made this a perfect spot for you!
The right mix of comfort, privacy, and convenience!
If you are looking for a place that feels like Shangri-La yet is only a few minutes drive from all the pleasures Tucson offers, look no further than Casa Feliz.
David and I enjoyed the off-street parking and access to the suite via a path that led through a private garden. Our own chairs right outside our room were a great place to have an afternoon drink, especially after a dip in the pool. By the way, this is one of the few Home Away refrigerators that provided a freezer with ice cube trays--a really nice touch in the desert!
The room itself is spacious with a huge closet, a four-drawer dresser, and two spots to store luggage so it was out of the way. There was a small desk that suited my blogging/laptop needs perfectly. The bathroom, while compact, had everything we needed including a much appreciated walk-in shower.
The host, an expert on the area, welcomed us warmly and gave us lots of suggestions about things to see and do.
All in all, we felt this garden paradise offered the right mix of comfort, privacy, and convenience. We know you'll be thrilled to call it your temporary home while you explore the wonderful city of Tucson.
Dru and Dave,
Thank you for such a warm review!! You certainly seem to enjoy our environment, the accommodations, and the proximity of this quiet spot to Tucson, which always has something fun to do. We especially appreciate your naming the place "Casa Feliz." Please do visit us again!
