  • The privacy in this private desert casita was wonderful for our 4 days of complete relaxation. The good AC and the gorgeous pool that you can use any time help with the extreme heat outside. Besides the equipment you see on the photos, there is one hotplate, a pan, some pots and fortunately a grill so you can prepare your own meals.
    Since our stay was during the week we only had some short chats with Todd & Annette and they seemed very nice.

  • My daughter and I stayed at Todd and Annette's casita for 5 nights and our experience was positive in every way. The place was immaculate, the bed and pillows were comfortable, the kitchenette served us well, and we could choose between air conditioning or a ceiling fan to cool the space. The pool was a bit cool at this time of year, but it was well maintained, and the landscaping was beautifully done. My favorite aspect of the casita was it's location on a large lot on the east edge of town, which provided a quiet retreat after being in the hub-bub of Tucson all day. We will definitely be back.

  • Todd and Annette were exceptional hosts! The pictures and description of their rental are exactly what you get. They even had a grill for us to use. When we got there they had some waters in the fridge, some snacks for us, and coupons for Kartchner Caverns since we mentioned we were going there. We had total access to the pool and we took advantage of it. I would recommend renting from Todd and Annette, we will again the next time we are in Tucson.

  • Thanks to Todd and Annette for making our first Airbnb experience such a positive one. Their lovely casita was perfect for us--immaculate, tastefully decorated, and with a beautiful pool on nicely landscaped grounds. The location was also ideal --very close to Saguaro National Park and a welcome refuge from the bustle of Tucson itself. They are gracious and extremely helpful hosts and we would highly recommend their casita.

  • We stayed for 10 nights in the desert casita which was fantastic. This was our first time to visit Tucson and Arizona and was an excellent base from which to visit other attractions. The location is only a mile away from Saguaro National Park East.
    The accommodation was immaculate, spacious and well equipped with kitchenette, microwave, coffee maker and fridge. Toiletries, linen’s, towels and pool towels were provided.
    On our arrival we were greeted by Todd and Annette who are terrific hosts and made our stay very enjoyable, they are very approachable and are not intrusive.
    The weather was warm and sunny and we had access to the pool which was great to relax by. Thanks to our hosts for the use of their mountain bikes as we enjoyed riding along the trails in SNP East.
    Our stay here exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend it. We would not hesitate in staying here again.

  • We just stayed for 5 nights in the desert casita and loved it. It really became our home away from home while we were visiting family in Tucson. The location is spectacular, set on the eastern edge of the city near the Saguaro National Park (we highly recommend a visit since you are less than 2 miles from it) and you really get a feeling for desert living. Beautifully landscaped outside and comfortably decorated inside, it's a great place to relax and recharge. The room has a kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker and mini-fridge, which Annette had thoughtfully stocked with water and snacks. Clean fresh linens and bath and pool towels were almost luxurious. The weather was a tad too cool to make use of the pool except we did lay out twice just to absorb some rays, and once to see the stars at night. Nice places to walk or bike are close by the house, and there is wild life all around. All went very smoothly in terms of logistics. We could not have been more pleased. Thank you again Annette and Todd.

  • My husband and I stayed 5 nights in this lovely casita. The grounds are beautiful. Annette and Todd are lovely. The room is very comfortable with lots of closet space. The kitchenette is stocked with plenty of dishes and utensils to get by. The bathroom had plenty of supplies, water pressure was great and there were nice, fluffy towels.

    Tucson is very spread out so it seems to take a while to get most places but this casita is located conveniently near the entrance to Saguaro National Park (East).

    This property is very nicely priced and I would highly recommend it to any single or couple visiting Tucson. There is so much to do and see in the area.

  • This was an excellent place to stay while in Tucson. We were there for outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hiking and climbing. Enjoyed the sound of the coyotes the first night! The casita was nicely furnished and had everything we needed.

  • We loved this place, it was perfect for what we needed. Annette and Todd are very gracious host and made are stay even better. The area is very quiet and we felt like we had it to ourselves. Perfect location close enough to everything yet far enough from city noise. Great quiet escape:)
