Quiet retreat. Close to scenic attractions and golf. Owner very responsive and hospitable.
The small private house met our needs, well furnished and comfortable with quail, other birds and rabbits to watch. Loved the hot tub and BBQ area. Hospitality was great! Tucson exceeded our expectations. So much to do and see.

Tucson Treasure
The Bunkhouse is private, well appointed, and beautiful. There is access to laundry facilities too! While the surroundings make you feel as if you are in the heart of the desert, the Bunkhouse is close to entertainment, shopping, and tourist attractions. The owner is helpful and gives you all the privacy you need. This property is also gated, which makes you feel safe and secure. I wish I never had to leave!

Enjoyed desert solitude and beauty while visiting
We rented the Bunkhouse for the month of March. It was very clean and set up nicely; we used the kitchen and front porch daily. It had everything we needed. The main house is lovely as well and we had friends rent out the two rooms in the upper level for a portion of our time there. It was a wonderful area for a group of 6. The property is beautiful with mature trees, cactus, blooming flowers, water features, birds, rabbits & coyotes. A quiet, relaxing place after a day of hiking or biking. Several nice restaurants, grocery and shopping areas near as well. The owner was wonderful, checking to be sure we had everything we needed and giving us tips on places to check out. We would highly recommend it, especially to nature lovers and hope to stay there on our next trip to Tucson.

a secluded desert retreat
Greer provided a terrific stay for us. Having lived in Tucson a few decades ago, we wanted to reexperience the old flavor, when Tucson was a smaller, quieter, more rugged place. Staying out in the desert in Greer's bunkhouse was perfect. The bunkhouse was much larger than expected, rustic but well appointed, very comfortable, and surrounded by the beautiful desert we remembered. A great value! We felt secluded but Greer's home was right across the driveway and we had easy accessibility to grocery stores and civilization in general. The whole place felt welcoming and very secure. A perfect combination!! Wonderful desert walks and hiking in the Tortolitas (and all the other mountains surrounding Tucson) were welcome additions to our visit. Greer was an attentive yet never intrusive host. We will definitely call Greer again when we next visit Tucson.

Great out of the way spot, but close to everything
We rented the bunkhouse for 10 days, found it to be quite comfortable and homey. Kitchen was well stocked, good bed. Greer was friendly and welcoming, very accommodating of our dog.

Great rental, secure and quiet
We stayed in the bunkhouse at Greer's for 6 weeks. We especially liked the layout. It had a great room, with the bathroom off it. Through the bathroom was the bedroom. When we had guests sleeping in the great room, this gave us the privacy we needed. The bunkhouse was very clean when we arrived, and is well stocked with the cooking basics and towels. The seating was comfortable, which was important to us because we struggled with that at our rental in 2015. Last, but certainly not least are the people. Greer is very accommodating and helpful. The other people renting on her property was very nice to be around and quiet. Also we loved Tucson. There are so many quality places to visit. The great outdoors, art, music and dining are all covered here.

We didn't want to leave!
Top notch hospitality. Immaculate and roomy surroundings. All the comforts of home and more. Very convenient to the airport and centrally located to the attractions Tucson and vicinities have to offer. It goes without saying the weather was great.

Beautiful!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bunkhouse is beautiful and fully equipped. If you don't feel like going out to eat, there is a well supplied kitchen to use. We felt at home away from home. The setting is great. We would highly recommend it to everyone.

The bunk house was Home within minutes!
This was a fantastic vacation home away from home! It was clean and well equiped. From kitchen, washer/dryer, hot tub,and nice linens. The owner is very warm and welcoming, she was helpful with things in the area and provided a lot of information. You can be as laid back or as busy as you want to be. The home was cozy and quite, we listen to the coyote at night and many birds. The home was in a perfect location. We were minutes from stores and restaurants but you would never know they were that close. Also under thirty minutes to an hour to many State and National parks. We did some awesome hikes. Many outdoor opportunities in this area. The other Guests on the property were wonderful as well and we look forward to getting to know them all better in the future. We only had one question when we arrived home......and that was "why didn't we stay LONGER"!

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.
