We arrived to 100F heat and as advertised the door to our unit Rain Catcher was open and the unit was very clean and well equipped. We didn't see the owner Beth until day 2 when she dropped by and fortunately she loaned us an umbrella to cope with the aforementioned rain. Our plan for the week was to see... More

This year we stayed in Storm Catcher for a week at the start of our holiday. It was the first week in May & we had hoped to find the cacti in full bloom, Unfortunately we missed it by a week or so. What a place to relax & watch the wild life & birds in your back garden. I... More

We stayed in the smaller casita which was just lovely, clean, comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen. Staying here saves you the trip to the Desert Museum. At breakfast it is a pleasure to watch all the wildlife around you, playing between the numerous saguaro cacti, mesquite trees and bushes. Many nice touches, such as the firewood for the outdoor...

We stayed at the Casitas again this year; we have been coming for a number of years and accommodate our travel schedule to the availability of our favorite casita. This year we stayed in March for a warm week with beautiful sunsets. The casitas are arranged on this ranch site with lots of privacy, set in the beautiful natural setting... More

If your idea of a Tucson vacation includes a beautiful, private dwelling in the desert, with all the comforts of home...an outstanding view...location near restaurants and shops yet complete privacy...then you must visit the Casitas. Beth and Bob have lavished loving care on these casitas (Spanish for "little houses"). We stayed in the Desert Sun casita. Great care had been... More

Stayed in the Rain Dancer for 2 nights. The Casitas at Smokey Springs Ranch is really a special place. It is located on the far East side of Tucson. The Casitas are scattered over an area of the ranch that is landscaped and very well kept. The Rain Dancer had all the comforts of home. It was very well equipped... More

What a wonderful way to stay in Tucson! Beth is such a kind and helpful host. Email communication was easy and casual. You can tell she truly cares about the comfort of her guests. We stayed in Harvest Wind, and it felt like home. The small decorative touches were adorable! I loved the antique hitching post out front. House is... More

We visited in January - so this review is very late but the memories are still going strong! We were upgraded on arrival and stayed in the Storm Catcher lodge. So beautiful including an open fireplace-perfect for the winter evenings! Stunning grounds, we especially loved the morning views over the Catalinas. This is a really special place, we hope to...

A calm and comfortable place with everything you need to feel at home. The hot tube surrounded by a cactys garden was awesome. Helpful innkeepers. We would stay there again no doubt. Highly recommended.

I've stayed at this property three times over the past two or three years, and each time has been absolute perfection. The owners have gone out of their way to make all of the casitas pleasant, homey, relaxing, quiet, private...the list goes on and on. I've stayed in Harvest Wind (one bedroom) and Desert Sun (two bedrooms) - both casitas... More
