Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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:)

  • We were able to stay with Todd and Annette for 3 nights while in Tucson visiting friends before their wedding. It was our first experience with AirBNB and it could not have been more perfect. We arrived very late at night, but Annette made sure that everything was set up for us and although we never had a chance to meet them during our stay, they made sure we had all the information needed to enjoy our stay. The room was pristinely clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The views outside the private casita were amazing and the small kitchenette and refrigerator were large enough to store leftovers and food for breakfast. We would stay again in a heartbeat! (And the coffee they provide is Starbucks, a pleasant surprise!)

  • I had an absolutely wonderful & rejuvenating experience at Todd & Annette's Casita! The peace & quiet and stunning desert scenery everywhere you look is incredible! The Casita is the perfect size, had all the amenities and the bed was very comfy! I so much enjoyed meeting Todd & Annette who were very gracious hosts! If you need to get away to a warm quiet desert oasis - this is the place for you! Highly recommended!

  • Had a wonderful time. The place is ideal for a quite place to regroup or get away from the cold for awhile. Our host were great and the location was central to a number of attractions we wanted to see.
