    This is a fantastic property, perfectly located in the Tucson area providing great access to both sections of Saguaro National Park. We received great communication during our reservation process, met or talked with both owners during our stay, and check out was very easy.Why 4 stars? My wife and I are national park hikers. We screen our lodging choices by a king size bed & a hot tub. This property has both, but we were unable to use the hot tub either evening. The owners made every effort to fix their hot tub, even taking on a priority fee on getting a technician there on short notice. But the unit had simply gotten too cold, to warm up in time for us to use it. So, we essentially booked a property with a listed feature that was not available.We rely on VRBO reviews to make our reservation choices, so felt obligated to be honest with ours. I would reserve with these owners again, or even book this property again.

  • Fantastic place to stay in Tucson


    Great house. Great yard for dogs. Beautifully furnished. Everything you need. We will definitely rent the Guest House again when in Tucson. Kendra & Keith were wonderful. Always just a phone call away for questions. Nice, safe neighborhood. Near shopping & Restaurants.

  • Lovely location right on a walking trail. Beautiful common areas.


    Kendra is wonderful and so welcoming. The property is right on a nice, flat, gravel, trail you can walk on. It's a short bike ride to the Loop where you can ride for miles. The common areas were lovely for relaxing with a nice glass of wine at the end of the day. Sadly we never saw Myrtle the Turtle, but we'll just have to come back. Plenty of towels and a comfy bed, but bring TP and tissues. The kitchen wasn't super well stocked, but for 2 we did ok. Mainly we should have brought some spoons! There are only 4. Just know you'll have to do dishes often even if you're just 2 people. The laundry was really convenient so it's no problem not having it in the unit. All in all we were really delighted and plan to return.
