The Casita with the upstairs bedroom perfectly met our needs. Some of the extra niceties were a basket of fruit, great robes and half and half in the frig. 2 very friendly dogs and close proximity to the Tumacacori National Historic site with its hiking trails all added to our experience. This was out first Airbnb outing and based on this one won't be the last.

we had an excellent experience in renting this place. It was extremely clean and comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. We had the convenience of a flexible check in time and we enjoyed a fresh fruit basket left for us. The location is suitable for those that want to get Away from it all and enjoy nature. I've seen lots of butterflies, fireflies and other animals I don't regularly see in Tucson. I highly recommend this place. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay with Christine and Richard. They were so accomodating at fullfilling our needs when requested things and we arrived to find a basket of fresh fruit, coffee, cream, wine, and two fluffy white bathrobes awaiting us. We loved the location which allowed us to easily travel to things we wanted to see and do, but we could return to this peaceful, rural setting in Tumacacori every evening. The apartment was the perfect size for two people and we enjoyed the tasteful decor. The nine peacocks that visited us everyday were an added bonus! Thank you for sharing your place with us, Linda and Richard. It truly was a home away from home.

I booked the smaller casita the day before I arrived as a place to retreat for some quiet and reflection after I had to put my beloved 10-year-old dog to sleep. For 3 days I read, napped, took long baths and made myself healthy meals. The super-comfortable bed and rocking recliner were perfect. The surroundings were lush and green and, while there was noise all day from the wood shop across the way where Christine and her family have their business, I was able to block it out with the help of the swamp cooler. Christine is a kind and welcoming host. She took me on a little tour when I arrived and introduced me to members of her family. She left me a bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of wine, brought a bike over for me to ride and invited me to cool off in the large pool and pick peaches from the neighboring orchard. Other than a few morning walks and a visit to Tumacacori Mission next door, I stayed in - very uncharacteristic of my travels, but it worked its magic. Although I was still sad when I left, I was closer to feeling like me again. Thank you!

I am a Woodworker who does Fine Art and Contemporary Craft Shows around the country. When I am not traveling, I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my husband, son, and two grandchildren. Here on the property we have lots of animals, such as chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and goats. So come enjoy a wonderful time with fresh eggs, cheese and milk.
