We had a great time. The place was exactly as we thought. The pool was clean and beautiful. The area was quiet, fun and close to he hiking we wanted. It was perfect for a
Spring break vacation.
We had a wonderful stay! Todd & Annette were very accommodating and friendly. The casita is perfect for two, and the setting couldn't be better. There were refreshments and munchies when we arrived, and we felt very much at home during the stay. We recommend their casita to all looking to visit Tucson. We plan on staying again in the future...Jeff & Autumn
The casita is everything you would expect from the description and more. Quiet, clean and comfortable best describe the experience. The casita is close enough to all the great experiences of Tucson but far enough away to fill your stay with the desert tranquility.
Annette met us when we arrived with a warm welcome. There was fresh fruit and juice waiting for us. She explained what we needed to know and told us to let her know if there was ever anything else we needed, to let her know immediately. She and Todd went out of their ways to make sure everything was perfect. And it WAS!!! With lots of bike trails and no bikes of our own, they offered us their bikes!! The privacy was outstanding! The room was perfect! The surroundings were beautiful. I can't think of a more perfect stay!! We will certainly look at staying at this private casita in the future!
Todd was by the casita/pool when we arrived. He welcomed us, introduced himself and made us feel at home immediately. He went over the stuff that was important and walked us around the casita which had all the little extras ...coffee, raspberry Danish etc. we chatted about where he he and Annette had come from and where we had come from. We got an immediate sense that this was the right fit for us. The listing couldn't have been more accurate. We especially loved siting round the pool. The casita was just right with bed, bathroom, kitchenette, TV, table and chairs in front of a beautiful desert area. The neighborhood was great. You know how busy Tucson is but then you pull into their driveway and pull up to the casita in back with all the palm trees, cactus, and all of the little bushes and flowers. It was gorgeous!!! Every day we went on a walk with ou dog, Charley. the was a nice path across the road that went down to Houghton and the other way to the entrance of Saguaro East. We visited Saguaro Corners which is a little grill with an outside patio and Gary's BBQ which is a little further down Old Spanish Trail. A neat BBQ place in an Adobe building. It's a neat area where there aren't row after row of buildings and townhouses and businesses. That is why we loved staying at the casita. I almost forgot we were going to use the grill but we never got around to it.
I will rent from Todd & Annette again. They were lovely and always available. They were so thoughtful. They had supplies for us so that we could relax the moment we got there. The casita is adorable and the views are incredible.
La casita es bonita! We had a very warm welcome from Annette & Todd & were made to feel 'Mi casa su Casa' for our 4 day stay. We enjoyed their proximity in a strange place but also the complete privacy they afforded us. The casita is very well appointed & we loved drinking our morning coffee beside the pool in Mid January. The situation is perfect if you are there for the mountains & the saguaros, yet only a 20 minute drive into lovely Tucson. We will recommend this stay to any family & friends travelling in that part of the USA & intend to return as soon as we can, thanks again, Annette & Todd! xxx
