We had a comfortable private room. Chuck is a fantastic host. He made us feel welcome at all times. He provided valuable information about the area's parks and helped us plan our daily adventures around tucson. He made us a wonderful breakfast each morning and was always a great conversationalist. If you're going to Saguaro West, why would you get a hotel when you could stay with Chuck?
We had an amazing time with Chuck. He has truly become a friend and we hope to connect with him again.
Our stay with Charles was very enjoyable. He keeps his home very clean and was very accomodating to our needs. He is a good conversationalist and we had very interesting discussions about a variety of topics.
We found him to be knowledgable about the area and was able to provide us with useful tips for our tour of the area.
We have no qualms in recommending his home for anyone interested in staying in the Tucson ara.
We had a wonderful time staying with Chuck during our recent visit to Tucson. His place is near the awesome Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the Saguaro West Nat'l Park. Chuck had great insight about the area and his tips definitely enhanced our time there. We hope to stay again sometime.
The house is a perfect location if you want to visit the National Parks and see the cactus. It wouldn't be an ideal location if you are doing things on the other side of the city because it's a little removed from the center. Charles was a great host and the space was clean, comfortable and cozy. We were so surprised to have a lovely breakfast before leaving the next morning - and he even let us print our boarding passes from his home printer!
Charles' place was great. The room was clean and comfy and I had a private bathroom. Perfectly located for me as I was interested in going to Saguaro National Park. As an ecologist I really appreciated that Charles was re-vegetating his land with native plant species and he graciously gave me a walk around. Charles was accommodating in every way, and offered lots of advice on local attractions. He was wealth of knowledge and helped me plan my travels. A great stay, Thanks Charles!
I enjoyed my stay with Chuck. He is a thoughtful host, ready to address any request you might have or engage in interesting conversation. The accommodations were very quiet, neat and comfortable. With Chuck one can feel as if staying with a friend as much as a host.
I am happy to highly recommend this listing.
Chuck was a delightful host. He offered and did prepare breakfast; coffee and teas were wonderful, fresh fruit available too. His home - the room - was as described. While I thought his home was located further out from downtown Tucson, it was a very short drive with many roads through great scenery. I would stay again!
We had a great time staying at Chuck's home. We loved having two bathrooms to use and a comfortable bedroom. Chuck was a very considerate host. We appreciated the breakfasts too. His home is spotless. The location is very convenient to Old Tucson, the Desert Arizona Sonoran Museum, Tucson Mountain Park, and Saguarro National Park.
Chuck was a warm and welcoming host, and I feel a lot of appreciation for that. I felt like I had an instant new friend. The experience went above and beyond my expectations. Like the other reviews say, his place is quiet and clean, and beautiful. Thank you my friend!!
"Chuck" is a good friend with lots of integrity and good will. Whenever he stays at my house, Chuck offers me help in the garden and around the house. I've visited him in Tucson. His house is clean and well cared for. I know for a fact that Chuck values the natural landscape and finds much beauty and art in the desert. One of his admirable qualities is that he pays close attention to both nature and culture and knows what's going on around him. And he shares generously what he knows. I think you'll like Chuck, his comfortable home, and the surrounding environs.
