Guestbook comments from the owner

We needed a comfortable place to stay after long days in the field. The house is amazing with respect to the detail. Everything is perfect. It is well stocked with everything you need for an extended stay and Carella will assist you if there is anything you need. The comfortable beds! Brilliant after a long days work in the desert. We also enjoyed the backyard where we saw families of quail, javelina (marking their territory on the bird feeder), jackrabbits, scorpions, and families of cactus wrens! In summary Carella makes this an easy place to have a vacation, or in our case, a research trip. The best field “Station” ever!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for family who were visiting from out of town. It is a fantastic place beautifully decorated in southwestern decor. The house was super clean and had everything they needed, including rafts and items for the kids to use in the pool! The beds were comfortable and although advertised as a casita it is a spacious 3 bedroom house.

Although it is very close to shopping, the house is tucked off the road and surrounded by desert plants on a quiet road. They had the pool to themselves and although the owner lives next door, and checked in with us to make sure all was well, there was plenty of privacy.

This place is pretty much perfect and we would definitely rent it in future.

Perfect home base for the week

  • 5 of 5

We picked this home based on the prior reviews and they were all very spot on. The home is wonderful and extremely well appointed.

Carella is so nice and really has thought of everything. The backyard was a small paradise and our 2yr old was overjoyed by all the wildlife we saw even just sitting out for breakfast.

We felt comfortable and at home here and it was the perfect place to come home to and relax after a busy day of adventures.

You won't be disappointed staying here.

The casita is the ideal holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 30 days at the Caseta. It is the perfect location for travelling the area and there is much to see. Do your homework first! Caralla is a first class lady and unbelievably helpful when needed. I would love her for a neighbour back home. The Casita is most comfortable and has all the amenities you need. Shops and town are minutes away. If you want to site see, perfect. If you just want to chill out, perfect for that too. Would we go again? Definitely yes, if we are able

Great , well-stocked and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was, hands down, the best vacation rental I have ever had. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Carella's home. It was incredibly well-stocked with books, DVD's, area pamphlets, etc. The house was large, comfortable, and relaxing. The pool was so nice and peaceful after a day of hiking and sightseeing. And the yard was beautiful and filled with birds. We even had a javelina visit us.

I highly recommend Carella's casita if you are looking for a great, relaxing place to stay.

our Tucson vacation

  • 5 of 5

First we want to thank Carella for the help during our vacation, you made everything so easy. It was nice talking with you. we have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is one of the best. The home is very well kept well stocked and very comfortable, there wasn't anything we needed that we didn't find. we didn't want to leave. We started every morning on the patio with coffee watching the wildlife esp. mom and dad quail with the babies, and finished every day sitting out there til after dark. ( very relaxing ) My husband even gave up the TV to sit out here. Hope to make it back again and I don't have to look anywhere else for a place to stay, it will be right here.

This northwest, Tucson home is tastefully appointed to make a comfortable and cozy vacation home. With a short drive down an unpaved road (100 yards) the casita is encompassed in an oasis surrounded by nature. See sightings of cottontail rabbits, Gambel’s quails and an assortment of lizards, hummingbirds, and squirrels. Catch glimpses of javelina, coyotes or jackrabbits that might visit the neighborhood. Surrounded by fabulous mountain views which add to stunning sunsets and sunrises.
