  • Tucson casita A Horse Thief Ranch


    Location and access to local stores and restaurants was good. Quiet neighborhood, easy access to walking trail. Outside sitting furniture needs cleaning and repair/replacement, hot tubs dirty and in need of updating. Kitchen, living room and bedroom lights flickered constantly, kitchen lighting dim, hard to see. Used toaster and lights dimmed. Carpet was very worn, couch dirty, sagging, needs to be replaced. Bathroom floor dirty, smelled like animal feces, the whole place had a strong animal odor. Removed mattress pad, too dirty to sleep on. Quilt was torn. WiFi and dish tv were spotty at best, worse during rain showers. No instructions on how to use tv remotes, had to call host and have her talk us through resetting system. Would not recommend for the price.

    What a charming location! In town for the shows and this was a perfect place for us to relax! The courtyards, walking trails and hot tub, perfect! Right next to Sabino Canyon, don’t miss this adventure! The communication with Kendra was excellent and we will definitely be back!

    Loved Horse Thief Ranch and the casitas. Had our own space and enjoyed coming together in main house. Everything was provided and walking trail nearby was appreciated. Enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit, use of bicycles. Close to stores. Would come back again!

  • Amazing amenities


    Enjoyed our stay very much. Wishing it would have had a floor sweeper to clean up some crumbs.

  • Awesome property


    The setting and grounds are very peaceful, perfect for getting away from a loud, crowded city even though stores and restaurants are a short drive away. We hope to go back someday.
