Interaction with Guests
We try to be present at check in and at check out. We usually are around in evenings for recommendations.

Secure garaged parking on site. Car is essential as the closest public transportation stop is 1/2 a mile away.
Other Things to Note
The Home Owners Association rules state that cars must be in the garage overnight. If you are uncomfortable pulling in and out of a garage you should probably look elsewhere. We can make exceptions for a short stay of a few nights. I can also get an exception approval from the HOA for a trailer for a short stay.
Please note the bathroom has a step in clawfoot bathtub with a shower. No walk in shower is available.

The setting was lovely, and Carl was a great host. the casita was just like the photos
Carl was great, welcomed me and showed me around the cottage when I arrived and was available when I needed him. I had a busy schedule while in town so I was in and out a lot and appreciated having my own entrance and garage. The cottage had everything I needed and I wish I had had more time to enjoy their beautiful pool and hot tub!
Okay I was a very gracious and accommodating hose. wonderfully attentive to us as guests.The property is in a very nice neighborhood, has a wonderful desert garden, private garage parking, and a great hot tub which Col. he did for us nights we wanted to use it. in the Tucson mountains come out yet still convenient to Central Tucson.
Had a wonderful time at Carl's. Peace, quiet, beauty, and friendliness. Great proximity to both wilderness and town. Carl was welcoming and generous with use of the hot tub, pool, and lovely garden space. Will definitely be back!
The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet, especially in the early evening, which is a good time to take a walk. We especially enjoyed hearing the coyotes at night. Carl was very accommodating and helpful, and left us to our own schedule.
This was our first visit to Tucson, and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Carl was very welcoming, then gave us our 'space.' The cottage is very comfortable with all the extras. We highly recommend staying here when you're in Tucson.
Carl's place in the foothills of the Tucson Mountains is wonderful. It's close to town and close to the mountains and desert. The casita is comfy and Carl is a great host. I'll stay again and I recommend it all!
