“Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, Pat is so kind!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2010

We liked the convenient location (as long as you have a car), we couldn't wait for breakfast every morning, Pat is an amazing cook (she previously owned an award winning restaurant), and our stay was generally relaxing! We will be back!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2009

Imagine having your breakfasts prepared and served to you every day by a professional chef, who repeats none of the main breakfast dishes in six days, and includes fresh fruit, freshly made (and still warm) baked goods and her own blend of coffee with them. Imagine that every one of those main breakfast dishes are excellent and all involve fresh ingredients. Your chef-server-hostess is relaxed, organized, friendly, accommodating and doing all of this before heading off to another calling involving teaching nutrition and culinary arts to university students. But also know she is going to allot time to do a run-through of your overnight accommodations, to make sure you have clean sheets and towels and anything else you may need. She's going to leave you in a spacious and pretty backyard garden, which attracts all kinds of birds, has shaded seating and affords privacy if you want it, public space if you're mingling. That's a brief overview of our experience during our six-night stay in the petite cottage, which, by the way, is large enough to suit three related adults (mom, dad and 21-year-old son). We like a place where the owner clearly thinks about how people use space -- where there are enough towel racks and hooks in the bathroom, enough closet and dresser space for clothes, enough surfaces to unload stuff on, enough lighting, enough seating. Pat has all these things "down pat" and we liked her design sense as well. We lacked for nothing here, and rate our experience a 10 out of 10. Folks going later in the year will get to use a beautiful lap pool. And take your laptop, too, to take advantage of the free wi-fi!

From the moment we arrived at Mon Ami B&B we knew it would be a wonderful experience. Pat, our host, was warm and welcoming, and immediately made us feel like we were right at home. The garden and pool areas are absolutely beautiful, an oasis where you can forget you're in the middle of a not-always-so-scenic city and nearby strip malls and busy streets (sorry Tucson!). We stayed in the La Vie En Rose Suite and took full advantage of the fireplace in the room and adjacent hot tub just outside our room! My hubby still says the bed was so comfortable that it was the best sleep he's had in years. Breakfasts were delicious, and being such a "foodie," Pat was able to direct us to some great restaurants in the area. We started and ended our AZ trip in Tucson (did a week of travels closer to the Mexican border in between) but stayed in another B&B the final weekend since we were trying to see as many different areas and neighborhoods as possible - even though the other B&B was in a more scenic location in a mountain range (typically our preference), we ended up wishing we had gone back to Pat and Mon Ami! If and when we go back to Tucson we will stay with Pat at Mon Ami again, no need for us to ever do research on where to stay in Tucson again!

  • Liked — Total comfort - bed, fireplace, hot tub, yard, food, and the host. All GREAT!
  • Disliked — The area and neighborhood are fine, nice, safe, we just had an image of it being more natural and scenic area (Tuscan as a city was not what we had expected).

Hi Jennifer,

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful review you left on Trip Advisor. Wow,.
that was incredibly generous. I have been kind of busy, and just recently
revisited that site. I tried again to upload a photo, so hopefully this one
will actually make it onto the site. I hope you both enjoyed the rest of your
stay in Arizona and wonder how the job interview turned out.

Anyway, hope you are having a great summer and have the opportunity to frequent
the Jersey shore as often as you like or need.

Take care, and again, many thanks for selecting Mon Ami for your visit and for
the fabulous review.
Pat
