Carl's casita gave us just the Tucson experience we were hoping for - a quiet retreat, a short distance away from the city bustle and close to our favorite hiking in the Tucson Mountains.
Check in was efficient and thorough and we immediately felt right at home. The bed was comfortable, the kitchenette serviceable, and the bathroom was spotless with decent water pressure in the shower.
We enjoyed spending time in the beautifully tended desert garden back yard, sipping our coffee out there as the sun rose and watching the palomas. We also made use of the hot tub at night to ease the sore muscles we worked up during our days of hiking.
Carl was a great host - just a text message away when we needed him, but otherwise, the separation from the main house made us feel quite private.
To be sure, the next time we're back in the Old Pueblo, we'll be staying here again.
We spent 18 days at Carl's Town House, and enjoyed the experience. Quiet safe community in NW Tucson, Well furnished with Comfortable beds. All the amenities of home. We even got to park in the garage. When in Tucson we would stay here again. Thanks Carl.
This was our second time to stay with Carl and Gregory. Their place is very comfortable with a simple but certainly adequate kitchenette facility, and very nice outdoor seating area. Also enjoyed hearing the coyotes yip at night!
Highly recommended, good value, we'll be back.
What was your experience with your host? Was the listing what you expected? What was their neighborhood like?
Carl's guest quarters were located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood near the heart of Tucson. We found everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay, and more. Carl was friendly and helpful while also being non-intrusive. His yard was tastefully landscaped with beautiful native vegetation. We would like to stay at his place again.
Great place, quiet and restful, just what we needed.
Carl is a discreet and gracious host.
Good walking in the Tucson Mountains nearby.
This was my first airbnb experience and it was a good one! Carl's place in the foothills of the Tucson Mountains was perfect as a base for some far flung explorations of southern Arizona. His home is located in a nice gated community that's very close to Gates Pass and the Tucson Mountains. It's a 15 minute drive to Tucson Mountain Park. You have your own garage and plenty of privacy if you want it. It was a lot of fun to return at dusk to javalinas wandering across the road and listening to the coyotes yip in the night. It's also very easy to head to town and experience the city. I didn't get a chance to hang out in his lovely courtyard or soak in the hot tub because I was up before the sun and gone but it's an option for folks that aren't headed for the desert and mountain regions early. I will definitely use airbnb again and can recommend Carl's Casita highly!
Carl was a very gracious host and the property he offers is quintessential Tucson. My wife and I stayed in his cottage for two nights while visiting family and friends in Tucson and could not have been happier with our visit. The bed was comfortable, the kitchenette offered a welcomed opportunity to drink some coffee and tea before heading out, and the surroundings were beautiful.
While the hot tub was out of service due to a parts failure when we arrived, he and his partner had it up and running the next day--very attentive service.
We would not hesitate to stay with Carl again on our next visit.
We had a lovely experience at Carl's casita. We arrived much later than we hoped after a very long drive, but Carl was welcoming and more than accommodating. The cottage is very private and charming, with a kitchenette and great claw foot tub. The backyard was wonderful, planted with lots of beautiful cacti and with a stunning view of the mountains. Just far enough outside of town to be quiet and peaceful, but close enough to see the sights in town, or head out for a hike. A great place and host I'd recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful oasis!
My family thoroughly enjoyed staying in Carl's townhome. Spacious, comfortable, conveniently located with community jacuzzi, pool and ping pong to appreciate daily. Linens fresh, space clean, it was easy to relax upon arrival. Host was thoughtful (pointsettia's on the table) flexible (specifically with check in) and responsive. Weather - well, not in the host's control but sunny, high 60s to mid 70s all week long.
Good guest, very good communication. Also notice us a leak from the above apartment. Hope to see you again.
This is not your ideal guests.
Carl and Gregory are super nice guys, they were with us briefly as they were in Costa Rica to get on a cruise ship. We arranged a driver to take them to Jaco Beach, where Carl had previously visited, and on to Puerto Caldera for their onward trip.
Great guests who come with a good sense of humour. Very easy going and clean. Carl has run his own bnb for many years and therefore treats the space with respect.
No hesitation having them back again!
