This was a great deal on a very comfortable place with fabulous views. For two people it was very roomy. Norm was very accommodating and always pleasant to interact with. All the neighbors I passed when walking my dog were very friendly. We stayed a week and only had one hot day in the low 90's when we needed the fan--which worked so effectively I plan to buy one like it for my home. There's a Gila Woodpecker living in the saguaro cactus on the patio and you can watch it from the kitchen window. I will miss the woodpecker and the charm of sitting on the patio in the evenings. I hope to stay here again the next time I'm in Tucson.
Norm was great! Communication was excellent; answered all of our questions in a promptly manner. We felt very confident to make the reservation with him. Once we arrived the place was just as described or even better. Clean, nice and very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is equipped with virtually anything you might need for your stay; extra blankets, pillows and LOTS of space. We could not be happier with the place and with Norm. We definitely look forward to staying here again. Thanks Norm, you are your place are simply the BEST!
Norm was a very nice host. Very easy to reach by phone and communicate with overall. My family, 2 adults and 2 children, arrived late in the evening to the most amazing night view of Tucson. In the morning we were serenaded by a nearby rooster who got us up in time to watch the sunrise. It was gorgeous and we took lots of pictures. A property with these views in Tucson will be hard to beat. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had lots of room to spread out. We'd definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Tucson or the surrounding area.
Wir haben Norm zwar nicht kennengelernt, aber die Wohnung ist wirklich perfekt in Lage und Ausstattung... Alleine die Aussicht von Wohnzimmer und Terrasse entschädigte für die nicht ganz saubere Wohnung. Uns hat es sehr gefallen und wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen... Wir sind übrigens mit 4 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern gereist...
What a lovely stay at A Mountain Penthouse! Very comfortable with a magnificent view!
place was ok.

Great location for my conference which was at the Marriott Starr Pass. Quiet, view of downtown, close to hiking trails. Suggest you have a vehicle to access, conveniences are close by.
The condo really could use a cleaning before guests arrive. The floors have never been swept or cleaned, food in fridge, toiletries in bathroom. Fridge required a bowl for the leaking water. You need to lift the outside door upward to close and lock, the door know does work even though it is wobbly and dented. Could use a working outside light, with the many levels of uneven ground, might be conducive to falling on the stones and would be helpful to get the key in the lock on door at night. Shower is VERY small and really could use a new shower head but there was water.
Would be more attractive to stay again if the place was clean, kitchen dishes, cutlery, etc was clean and some decent cups, mugs, perhaps a microwave?
Never met Norm, talked once on the phone, quick responding both with e-mail and phone, appreciated this.
The studio was dirty and smelled. It obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while as the floors and surfaces were dirty. At least the sheets and towels were clean. There was still food in the fridge from previous occupants and my experience was highlighted by the Tucson Police Dept pounding on my door at 3am on my first night there asking if I had seen or heard anything related to a burglary across the street. This was my first and probably last experience with Airbnb.. Terrible...
Norm's place does the trick if you're looking for an affordable, basic place to stay in Tucson. He is available by cell if you need anything and is responsive to our requests. There is a Murphy Bed in the dining room which is comfortable, making the place livable for 2 guests that don't want to sleep in the same bed. Thank you Norm for opening your place for us to stay.
We stayed here last year and again this year during our grandsons college baseball spring training at the Kino Complex. This is close to Kino and is comfortable and the price is right. Norm added a larger TV since last year. SO GLAD he did. Difficult watching the NCAA on a 13" tv. If we are visiting Tucson again we will hopefully stay here again.
Stayed at Norm's again and had a great time. Great views, ideal location close to downtown and a very fair price for what you get. Hope to stay here again.
Norm was a pleasure to finally meet! He was a quiet and respectful guest. We hardly knew he was even there. And I think we may even have turned him into a AirBnB host back home. We'd welcome him back !
