Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Our place is close to 7 golf courses, I-10, good access to downtown Tucson, 1.3 hr to Phoenix Airport, 25 min to Tucson Airport, but with Sonoran desert privacy-- very quiet ranch lands, 8 min to groceries, views of Tucson Mtn sunsets and Catalina Mtn sunrises . You’ll love our coziness, location, solitude, security, lush desert vegetation, flowers, hummingbirds and minerals. The S. wing is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Karen is available in N. wing for questions.

Karen and Lenny were very friendly and accommodating. They provided us with all we needed for breakfast. The place is ideal for all who want to be away from traffic.

Karen and Lenny proved to be very gracious hosts!! We had a great time at their place and would recommend their home to future Arizona visitors! Communication was great, everything went smooth, and their hospitality went beyond our expectations. Very nice to make new friends!!

We had a great time at Karen and Lenny’s home. We enjoyed watching the hummingbirds feeding on the flowers right outside the window, the patio with a lovely fireplace and a comfortable house! This is a great place for anyone that enjoys being outside of town but within 5 minutes…

Response from Karen & Lenny:
We are a bit puzzled as to why we only received 4 stars for location when Angie discussed in her review how wonderfully situated the home is with respect to downtown, groceries, hikes, parks, etc. Additionally, we received 5 stars from her on all the other categories, so how the overall could be only 4 also has us even more puzzled.

Great location to be close to nature. For us it was a work trip but well worth coming back to something more down to earth. Karen was a great host. Supplied us with breakfast foods especially since we're unfamiliar with the area. Saved us some time. Overall a pleasure!

Karen & Lenny's listing is, for me, what Airbnb is all about. The home was quiet and comfortable, it was convenient to where I wanted to be, and as affordable (or more so) than a hotel. But the true experience was in getting to meet them and make new friends. They are truly wa…
