  • Beautiful and clean house

    5 of 5

    We stayed in this house for 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience. The view in the backyard was wonderful and beautiful. We loved seeing different animals in the back every morning. The house was very clean and had everything you would need at the house. I would highly recommend staying at this house. Mike was happy to help with anything that we needed. We look forward to staying here again.

  • Lovely Home, Beautiful Desert, Quiet Location

    5 of 5

    This was our first experience with VRBO, and since we were traveling for a bittersweet family gathering, I wanted to choose a well-reviewed property to reduce anxiety. Not only does Mike's house have rave reviews, there are many, many of them, not just a couple. We wanted to be on the west side of Tucson, and not too far from the Desert House of Prayer, and Mike's location was perfect. As a plus, the property is very quiet, away from big housing tracks, and has the wild desert as its backyard. We enjoyed watching hummingbirds and quail enjoy the bird baths/watering holes. Everything was clean when we arrived; we were greeted by Mike's son and introduced to the property, while also being assured that he was right next door to help us if we needed it. He also offered to help us with any restaurant or other recommendations we might need, but as we used to visit Tucson quite often in the 1990s, we had a list of old favorites we wanted to return to. The house is lovely and has plenty of common space; indeed, other members of our family stayed at a rental home in an expensive looking tract of townhomes, and our house had much more common space than theirs did (a fact we kept to ourselves). The bedrooms are also nicely sized. I loved the flooring, and the overall clean and peaceful atmosphere of the home. The kitchen had everything we needed, even an electric kettle in addition to the coffee makers and toaster, and some appliances that we didn't use but would be great to have, such as a slow cooker and blender. I'm not sure when we'll be back to Tucson, but Casa Graciosa will be our first choice to return to when we do!

    Mike has a good rental and it was in an excellent neighborhood. Not that far from the interstate, and was close to a grocery store and several restaurants. We are putting this home on our list of places to stay again.

  • Another great stay at this fine home

    5 of 5

    This was our second time spending a few days at Casa Graciosa, and it was just as pleasant as the first time. Clean, comfortable home in a good location for a Tucson visit. Love the back patio and yard, and the access to the arroyo. Owners are wonderful people -- quick to respond and help with the slightest question. This accommodation is priced right, too. I expect we'll be back again some time!

  • Desert Perfection

    5 of 5

    Of the many properties we have stayed in, this ranks among the best. First, is the property itself. Accurately described. Clean. Adequately equipped kitchen. Beautiful patio overlooking acres of desert with oodles of birds at the bird feeders. We ate many meals on the patio and watched the sun set. The location is perfect for taking advantage of all that the Tucson area has to offer. Safeway grocery store is minutes away. Within twenty minutes is wonderful hiking at the Sweetwater Preserve, the U. of Arizona campus, downtown Tucson, the airport, Tucson Mall, El La EnContada Mall, and scores of wonderful restaurants. Our host, Mike, had many suggestions for where to eat and directions to hiking. I could not recommend a property any more highly. A very comfortable place for two retired couples who enjoy getting out and seeing the sights.

  • clean and beautiful great location.

    5 of 5

    We enjoyed our stay here very much. You felt like you were away from the world but were very close to restaurants and stores. Very close to activities like Saguaro National Park and the Desert Museum. The house was at the edge of the desert and the wildlife was incredible. Mike was a terrific host and had lots of ideas about places to see and restaurants. We would return to see more of Tucson.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Graciosa in Tucson. Everything was clean and the house was well furnished. Our favorite part was the wildlife....hummingbirds, quail, coyotes, peccaries, etc... Would stay again without hesitation.

  • Fabulous desert experience

    5 of 5

    Another fabulous desert experience at Casa Graciosa. Convenient location to a number of tourist destinations, close proximity to stores and major highway. Couldn't believe the wildlife show in the backyard; quail, javelina, coyote, mule deer, and many birds. Mike, the owner, shares his insights and knowledge of the area to enhance the desert experience even more. Looking forward to visiting the area again with a stay at a truly remarkable desert home.

  • Casa Graciosa

    5 of 5

    We got to experience the magical desert landscapes both at the casa graciosa and the Saguaro National Forest (West and East). The house is comfortable and well equipped, the setting is wonderful with beautiful views and surprise visits by javelinas, coyotes (passing through and chatting at night), and humming birds, quails, gorgeous cardinals, and more. The walk up and down the wash is wonderful, especially in the company of Mike Alameda. Now we are back in the wintery landscape - only partially magical - and regret having had to cut our stay short by a day. Heidi and Jack

    This is a great location to view the desert while at home. Mike even called us to let us know that javalina were there. We were out but fortunately we had already seen them. The birds were amazing.

  • A well named property

    5 of 5

    First and foremost, our host Mike Alemeda was as gracious the name of the casa implies. He greeted us warmly, fixed the washing machine post haste, stopped by just to make sure we were having fun and made several recommendations as to sites and dining. The home is spacious and clean and well located to the Desert Museum and Tucson downtown. Because the back yard is not fenced or walled we were treated to almost every type of local wild life--no rattlers or bobcats. Our three weeks flew by and we hope the Casa Graciosa embraces many more families.

  • Very nice, clean house in a convenient location with great views and a friendly host.

    5 of 5

    The Casa was fun. The owner, Mike, lives next door, and he was very friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. He put out a cake a bird seed for us since he knew we liked to watch birds. He made sure that the ice-maker was working when we could not figure it out. He came over and visited and offered suggestions for places to eat, etc.. The area is so convenient to downtown Tucson and other locations such as hiking trails, restaurants and so forth that we really had fun. We loved watching the birds in the yard and the coyotes in the street! The house was clean and comfy and plenty large for two people. We really liked the covered patio with a great view of the mountains.

    The setting for the home is just what I wanted. It is quiet, lovely yard, complete with Javelinas occasionally and even 4 acres to hike around in the gulch behind the home. The easy access to I-10 and all major attractions was really great. We felt so at peace in this lovely place. It was well-stocked with more than I could have anticipated. Thanks for your hospitality, Mike. Bettye P.

  • Great Home/Location Nestled in the Tucson Foothills

    5 of 5

    My girlfriend and I just stayed for 8 days - the location is perfect if you like outdoor activities like Saguaro Nat'l Park, Sonora Desert Museum, Tohono Chul Park = easy access. The home is spacious and clean and we loved it! We particularly enjoyed watching birds/wildlife right out in the beautiful backyard. Mike, the owner, lives next door, and is very helpful. We really liked the quiet location - out of the city - above a wash in the foothills, with very easy access and convenient to any places you want to visit, eat or get groceries. Lovely patio to sit outside and enjoy sunsets, watching birds/wildlife, eat, and relax. Wish I could stay all winter! Mike also mentioned watching desert storms from there is pretty fabulous too. Great for two like us as each had our own bedroom/bath. Makes you fall in love with the desert - it is such a vibrant, interesting ecosystem.
