“Jeri’s home is the sweet mountain getaway you’ve been looking for. While the main benefit of the home is being just a minute walk from the delicious Cookie Cabin - this home/cabin was perfect for a weekend getaway. If you are looking for lots of amenities, tech, or modern housing look elsewhere! This home however is perfect for taking time away from our busy day-to-day life. The interior is decorated incredibly cozy and warm, and from the moment we arrived we felt right at home. There is a tv and some dvds, however we spent most of our time playing with the countless puzzles, cards, and board games that the home is stocked with! There is a basic kitchen with a fridge, stove, microwave and coffee maker - so it’s perfect for making a simple dinner or breakfast. The porch sits facing the hills of Mt.Lemmon, and lots of birds and critters will entertain you sitting on the patio or porch swing. Jeri also provides helpful guides to flowers, bugs, birds, and plants - so definitely take time to walk around outside and familiarize yourself with nature! She also was kind enough to suggest a few hikes for us based on our skill level. The sleeping areas were very cozy, and there are a lot of blankets and quilts around to drape yourself in! We did find that a few bugs got inside the house, even with the doors closed, but that of course was to be expected staying up on Mt. Lemmon! One did scare me on a midnight bathroom break, but my Pacific Northwest self felt like I was back home! We definitely plan to make a return trip sometime and explore some more trails!”
This 900 sq. ft. Casita is nestled in the foothills of the Tortolita Mts. NW of Tucson, near the main house but with its own amenities, including solar panels on the roof, tasty well water from >1,000 ft. depth, speedy reliable wi-fi and internet-enabled large-screen TV. The views from huge picture windows are gorgeous, especially to the north and west. Native plantings are of >10 indigenous and exotic cactuses and >10 other native bushes and trees. We love it and think you will too.
“We were long term visitors of Casita Como and we can truly say this is a Diamond AAA stay. Everything you will need is pretty much here and if it isn't, your hosts can probably provide it. Beautiful natural and native plantings that Bernd has worked diligently on to establish is here. Wildlife is in abundance, all you have to do is wait for it to come into view. Comfortable accommodations. Excellent kitchen. Yes, it's a ways out so if you are looking for active night life and things to do around the corner, you might want to stay closer to Tucson. This is a quiet, relaxing and beautiful experience waiting to be had. It was hard for us to close the Casita's door one final time!”
Looking for a place to get away in the mountains? Looking to escape the heat. Or for a romantic get away some place you can see the stars? This is the ideal cabin for you.
“The location of this place is awesome! It’s off the beaten path so it’s very quiet, and there’s some cute hiking trails close by. It’s only about a 5-10 minute walk to town. Pretty much everything we needed was provided by the host. We went shortly after a snowfall, so we had to trek through some ice. The driveway is quite steep and hard to get up without 4wheel drive. There are these awesome skylights in the master bedroom that allowed us to see the Quadantrid Metor Shower. It was SO cool. The host is amazing at communicating with you to make sure you know everything leading up to your stay. I would 100% stay here again!”
