Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We loved this house and property. Character, enjoying the desert, and the full experience. It was very clean, and everything was as advertised. Many amentiities provided (unlike some condo rentsls). We did have a mix up with the address when we got there (we were sent the address for the wrong rental) and had to call the manager to get the right one, but this was easily remedied.. The Internet was pretty slow as it was sati little..very hard to face time or do anything like that. there are not a lot of restraurants in the area. It's located to a nUmber of attractions, a bit of a drive into Tucson, if you want to be in the desert and not in town, this is a great place to experience it. Deposit was quickly returned afterwards.if we were in the area again, we would definitely rent this property again.
