Raised in Tucson. Now living in Bisbee, AZ. I still enjoy Tucson and have my vacation home there.

The house was very clean. We like to cook and there was a good kitchen with all the utensils we could possibly need. The house was centrally located and it was nice to be able to walk to down town to check it out.
This was our second stay at the casita. It is charming and authentic and comfortable. We will be back.
The house is very nice . We love it and we will go back .
My friend and I loved our stay at Mary Lynne's casita. The place is small yet charming and very homey. It has virtually everything you might need during your stay (washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV, CD player plus some old 60s/70s CDs, extra pillows, landline phone), plus the kitchen is well equipped with high quality items (pots/pans, cooking utensils, knives--much better knives than I have at home). The neighborhood is old and historic with a variety of good restaurants all within easy walking distance. Our favorite was Casa Vincente with yummy tapas plus other Spanish dishes and there's also a coffee shop/café nearby that's really jammed and hopping on Sunday morning (right next to an Ethiopian restaurant that was quite tasty). In addition, there are some interesting places within easy walking to visit and learn about the community, like a small Jewish museum (Tucson's first synagogue & tiny Holocaust museum) with exhibits and the small Pilita Museum where you can learn about the history of Barrio Viejo neighborhood. Although the Barrio where the casita is located is old and looks run down by conventional standards, we found it safe and friendly plus it's so convenient for exploring the broader downtown area. (Another restaurant recommendation is Caruso's for Italian food.) We had a bit of a problem initially getting on to the Casita's wifi, but both Mary Lynne and a friend of hers responded promptly and the problem was quickly solved (tho the speed of the connection was slower than we were used to). We also loved the little patio in the back of the casita that has ample seating under an umbrellaed table, lounge chairs, plants, etc. It was heavenly hanging out there in the morning while we took in some warmth and sun as we drank our coffee, ate breakfast, and read. All in all, we loved Mary Lynne's place and would stay there again.
I never did have a chance to meet Mary Lynne, but the house was exactly as described and was in the perfect neighborhood, walking distance from downtown. We really enjoyed being in the house and felt warm and cozy inside even though it was an unusually cold weekend outside. Since I live part-time in Santa Fe, I have to say Mary Lynne's wonderful tile, tin and artwork made me feel right at home.
Thanks Jamie. You are welcome back anytime. You probably recognized several pieces (Santos and crosses) are from Chimayo, NM - not far from Santa Fe.
Very comfortable and in a great location. The house is decorated beautifully and has a really cute back yard. I would highly recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to Tucson.
The bungalow was a nice place. Well stocked and comfortable for the 4 people in our group! Great covered outdoor space in the backyard for casual dining or relaxing. Close enough to downtown Tucson to walk (maybe 20 minutes). Main street can be a bit loud at times with city buses, but not a major inconvenience. Would recommend to others.

The house is fun and beautiful. We had a great stay!
The Casita is perfect! We felt at home: warm and comfortable. Mary could not have done more to make us welcome. The kitchen was well appointed, certainly had all we needed for our Christmas. The neighborhood was new to us, and charming and well situated for all the places we needed to go. We would stay here on another trip to Tucson: this house has a soul.
Our stay was delightful and extremely comfortable. The casita is very nicely decorated with local/Mexican art, the beds very comfortable, plenty of towels for four people, the kitchen stocked with virtually every type of cooking utensil, pots and pans, and baking implements that you might require; there is also an abundant supply of plates, glasses, cups and eating utensils. The property was in excellent condition and spotlessly clean.
The Barrio Viejo/Barrio Libre section of Tucson in which the house is located is very charming; our frequent walks throughout the almost exclusively residential area led to new discoveries of different decorative and landscaping styles.
