Loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Rita and Dannie were really easy to get along with, they treated us like family. We enjoyed the pool and the laid back environment they offered. We are already planning our next trip and are looking forward to staying there again!

A home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Rita and Dannie's home. It's immaculately kept, comfortable and had everything we needed for a memorable stay.

We had a long drive from L.A. to Tucson to attend my nephews Graduation from UofA (Go Wildcats) and staying at this gem of a place was just what we needed to recharge our batteries.

We hope to be back soon for my same nephews wedding in the Spring.

Thanks Dannie and Rita (and your 2 doggies) for everything!

We loved staying here! We'd come back!

  • 5 of 5

This place is super close to Mt. Lemmon so it's perfect for hiking and biking. It's spacious, comfortable, private, and has an amazing view. Our hosts were very nice and responsive to any problems/questions that we had. For instance, the wifi a bit shaky initially and they replaced it with a new router. Problem easily solved.

Thanks, Rita!

Nice Quiet Rustic Property

  • 4 of 5

The owners were super nice and accommodating. Even though we arrived at 3am, Rita was there to show us the way, thank you! A bowl of fruit and a few boxes of snacks were there to welcome us which was a nice touch. We spent and cooked thanksgiving here and it was just a nice home away from home. Lots of pots, plates, etc. Sleeps more than 5 as there are 3 beds (1 king and 2 full) plus a pull out couch, however the 3rd bedroom with bath might not always be available as it was off the main rental area. If you are looking for horses on the property there were none to be seen but the views of the mountain are perfect from the kitchen window and outdoor seating area. WiFi was spotty at best but cell service was fine. A nice large TV to watch some shows on a very comfy leather sectional. Although there was a pool on the owner's side of the fence, it was not heated and there was no hot tub as specified on the HomeAway site. Bring your toiletries! There was shampoo and bar soap in the shower but I prefer my own as neither of these were new. Close to the grocery store, Sabino Canyon, and Mt. Lemmon.
