Wonderful Stay, Lots to do
We got lucky to rent this property when we did due to a last minute cancellation.
I first contacted Greer with some questions about the property via e-mail and she soon called me and we chatted for sometime. She happily answered all of my questions and everything she said was accurate.
When we arrived late on Saturday night, Greer greeted us and gave us a short tour of the house, and other helpful information about getting around. She also left us a breakfast in the refrigerator so we didn't have to go out that night shopping (wow).
After we unloaded our suitcases, we went over to Greer's wonderful patio and were introduced to some other guests who were enjoying the fireplace. They're a very nice couple who park their RV on the property and we enjoyed chatting with them (note that the property is quite large). They were also very helpful and gave us a folder containing a list of their favorite places to visit.
The house is exactly as described. It's a very nice guest house in the southwest style. All floors are tiled, the kitchen is large with a both a small table and a center island. The shower is all tiled and very nice. The bedroom has a king bed with several pillows.
Facing south, the guest house has a very nice covered porch. In the morning, the sun rises to your left and we enjoyed sitting out there and warming up.
At night, you'll often here coyotes yipping and howling (this only lasts a short time). I enjoyed hearing them as it's so different from where we live. That said, I never once woke up because of any noise outside.
We spent most of our days out sightseeing in Tucson and never ran out of things to go see. There's a great deal of hiking available for all fitness levels. I also rented a bicycle (Tucson is a cycling mecca) and did some riding. Tucson is really a great place to visit in the winter months, especially for two people from Minnesota.
We enjoyed our stay at the guest house and I would recommend it to anyone. And yes, I'd happily stay there again.
