Todd & Annette's casita was amazing. It's right on the edge of the east side of town yet it's a perfect for seclusion from the city. It was incredibly comfortable with beautiful landscaping and expansive desert views. I would highly recommend this beautiful casita for anyone looking to stay in Tucson. Thank you both!

Todd and Annette's casita is a fantastic alternative to a hotel. They take great care and pride in the casita and pool. The location is a bit off the beaten path (Tucson is very spread out...a car is a must) but I see this as a positive, as you really feel you're away from the city and literally on the edge of the desert. Everything you would ever need is provided -- lots of towels, soaps/shampoos/conditioners, utensils, coffee, bottled water, etc. They even had a small bottle of Downey wrinkle removal spray!! Annette stopped by to say hello and made sure I had everything I needed. Great personal touches throughout the property. I'm definitely coming back!

Annette is attentive to your needs but does not impose. The charming casita and private pool is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and very private, yet close to everything. We will return!

Everything was perfect. This place has everything you need. Fantastic private pool for our dips after all our hiking in Saguaro NP.

This is an amazing place, even better than it looks in the photos. We arrived late, but everything was as described, they even left us food and drinks. We explored the area (by car) and spent time in the evening relaxing in the pool then having a BBQ. We didn't get to meet Todd and Annette, but this was fine by us as we came to get away from it all and relax. However communication was good both before and during our stay. The place was lovely and clean and they had thought of everything you could need including suncream.
