My husband and I stayed the weekend here with our 5-year-old. Because it was one room, I was concerned that we might be cramped, but the space was roomy enough and the bed and futon were plenty of room. Free rein of the pool just 5 steps away from the casita door made it feel even more open.
Todd & Annette had everything set up perfectly, from plenty of pool towels, to a list of recommended spots to eat (which we tried and enjoyed), to lots of other little details. The space was cozy, comfortable, and quiet. If we take another weekend getaway to Tucson, we'd definitely love to return here.
The casita was very comfortable and cool, given the temperature
around 105 Fahrenheit in Tucson. Annette and Todd have thought of everything for guest's comfort. We enjoyed the beautiful pool also.
From the window of the casita we saw the desert landscape, an assortment of birds and even 2 bunnies. Very nice!
Todd and Annette were wonderful hosts! The casita was exactly as described, extremely comfortable, and my two daughters, one year old grandson and I were very happy with the space. The bed was very comfortable, and the convertible futon was extremely comfortable as well. There were bottles of water waiting in the refrigerator, coffee and creamer available, and a beautiful flat screen tv with a dvd player as well! The pool was gorgeous and taking a morning dip with the birds singing in the beautiful surrounding landscape was spiritually refreshing. This area is not close to downtown, which was exactly what we wanted. Only about a 15 minute drive to downtown with wonderful restaurants and coffee shops. This Casita is an incredible bargain! I would definitely stay there again.
Private, peaceful, beautiful. Listing was very accurate. Everything you could want. My husband and I appreciated how clean it was and all the extra touches Annette and Todd made to make our honeymoon stay special. This included a wedding card, red flowers in a vase, champagne with flutes, cheese and crackers. They had snacks for us like cookies and almonds and coffee and tea, and water. We felt like we got 'the honeymoon suite'! :) They were very welcoming, and available to us, but we barely saw them. Which was exactly what we wanted. This visit was in late April- pool was very clean, but quite chilly. Weather was in high 80's. We heard coyotes howling our first night and experienced a rain storm. Both of which we really enjoyed. We took advantage of Saguaro National Park and learned of desert creatures at the Desert Museum. All in all, a great stay!
Our stay at Todd & Annette's private desert guesthome was perfect. The casita was clean and perfectly maintained, the neighborhood was serene, and the pool was a wonderful place to unwind after long days hiking many of Tucson's scenic trails. Also, the Sam Adams waiting for us in the fridge was a fantastic touch for this Boston traveler. 10/10, would recommend and would definitely stay again.
This place is fantastic and a real bargain, it was one of our favourite places we stayed in America and also the cheapest!
Todd and Annette were really friendly and helpful and came for a chat the evening we arrived. Everything in the casita worked perfectly and it was a really comfortable place to stay. The pool was great, our 10 year old son particularly liked the springboard for diving, though the night time drop in dessert night temperatures meant it was alarmingly cold in the morning! As Tucson is so warm and sunny a cold pool was a really good thing.
