Had a Terrific Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this condo. Great location & couldn't ask for greater amenities. Owner was so easy to work with. Golf Club House is an extra bonus since we were able to enjoy the Super Bowl with happy hour prices for many food & beverage items.

Thanks giving Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What great digs! Ella's the nicest host -- we usually hope for at least one glass of wine and a chat with Ella, if she's in town. You can definitely expect a spotless warm beautiful home in a special nature reserve. That's for sure. I've stayed at Ella's other locations, including the property in Oregon. So I base these comments on several visits; Ella has the highest cleaning standards of any place I've ever stayed, including 5 star Marriott's! The bathrooms are steamed cleaned in between guests -- true story. I saw her housekeeper steam cleaning when we dropped off luggage. Starr Pass and Tucson are my Home Away from home now, in large part due to Ella making our stay fun and relaxing.

We had excellent weather in November -- 90 degrees every day. We hiked, shopped and watched movies at the vacation home. Were greeted by the javelina and roadrunners, mule deer and bunnies. We love how the development in Starr Pass favors wildlife -- the houses are all spread out, no "river of rooftops" in Starr Pass. The wildlife is king, as it should be! But bring your flashlights, it's dark at night with a million stars. Thanks for making us welcomwe, Ella. See you again in December!

Owner's Response: Jacqueline, You're definitely one of our best guests and we always enjoy your compliments and loyalty in staying with us. Your wedding group was a pleasure to host, please pass the word along to others getting married at the Marriott -- we love their overflow guests and they'll love the value of a house rather than a small room. The nice thing about our Starr Pass properties is you can jump on the shuttle and enjoy the Marriott or take Uber into town and come back to quiet safe Starr Pass. We loved meeting your friend Sara -- what lovely friends and family. Thank you

We recently returned from a weeks stay at Pamela's Owl casita at Starr Pass. We had a wonderful time relaxing and pursuing a possible relocation to the Tucson area. We have stayed at Starr Pass several times in the past, either at the Marriott or at various casitas. We actually prefer the casitas due to having a well-stocked kitchen to prepare our morning coffee, and having the beautiful Sonoran desert right out the door. We love nature and many birds and animals can be seen right from the patio.

Pamela's Owl Casita was spotless open our arrival. Everything was top-notch from the charming mongrammed linens, the very comfy bed, and the brand-new sectional sofa. When we return we hope to stay at Owl casita again.

Hiking trails, golf, restaurants and swimming are a short stroll away.

After a long day of traveling we arrived to find my favorite wine waiting and we headed to the patio before unpacking.

Thank you Pamela! We hope to return to your lovely casita very soon. We highly recommend Owl Casita to anyone who wants a comfortable, clean, quiet and restful stay in a home away from home atmosphere.

Owner's Response: Thank you Bev and Dave, for choosing to stay with us and for your kind words about the casita and host. You two were lovely guests to have. Thank you for leaving the casita in wonderful condition. Recently we made some upgrades, so we can all enjoy the property even more. Thank you for appreciating our efforts to keep the casita we all share spotless. We too appreciate all the wildlife outside the door, hiking, mountain biking, golf. All the best to you in your plans to relocate to the Old Pueblo. We loved having you and look forward to your return.
