Last month we stayed at the Desert View and found it to be just to our liking -- a down-home vibe in a peaceful setting just a few minutes from the amenities of Tucson. Joyce was very diligent in making us feel comfortable, and addressed any of our questions or concerns quickly and efficiently. The views were spectacular, and we came away with some great photos taken right from the veranda. I must mention too...

Thanks Shari, I has been wonderful to have you here and to see you enjoy this place. -Joyce

We rented the Desert View Casita January 2016. We spent a nice month in this unit. If looking for a place to stay in Tucson area but away from all the noise and hustle of the city itself this is a perfect location. Quiet, wonderful sunsets and close to National Park for walks, hikes, bike riding. The unit itself was comfortable. A one-bedroom unit on the second floor. Fully equipped kitchen with nice views from...

The sunsets were amazing and oh my land, the stars are UNBELIEVABLE at night because you're far enough away from the city lights....

Went to see both my grandkids graduate...selected this place as it was close to everyone... mistake... Unit was NOT as advertised... no stove... basically no kitchen... pool filter noise, right outside door, was over bearing... other reviews talk of desert views...
