“Great stay at The Modern Desert.”
Reviewed March 16, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The Modern Desert was a very nice, clean, and well kept property located in a very quiet and safe area. We enjoyed our time playing pool and arcade games and my only disappointment was that I was unable to beat the previous high score on my favorite game; maybe next time. We did not use the pool, but it looked very nice and was right across from our driveway. The part of this rental which I appreciated the most was the owner, Randy. From our initial rental request up until the time that our stay was complete, he was always extremely prompt in answering any questions we had and was very personable. He made every attempt to make our stay pleasurable. Thanks Randy!

“interesting and enjoyable place”
Reviewed February 26, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

well, it was as described "the modern desert" and enjoyable. comfortable house, quiet neighborhood, and Randy stayed in touch from afar on a regular basis, quickly resolving a minor plumbing issue. would stay here again. if I had to make any complaint I think someone who cooks a lot would find that the utensils are a bit lacking but we managed and the good more than made up for that. Based on what I know about Randy if I had said something he would have had Williams Sonoma out with a truckload of utensils the next day.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Modern Desert!! Quiet and secluded, allowed my family a peaceful place to enjoy a weekend holiday celebration. Set up felt like home. Close enough to Tucson attractions. I will look to stay here again.
