A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I spent four nights in this quiet neighborhood with my two little boys. The Casita was very neat and clean and had everything we needed for our vacation. We had a great time hiking nearby, and enjoyed the drive into Phoenix for many other activities. I definitely recommend this property!

Very nice getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Lucy and David are great hosts and have thought of all needs for a home away. Enjoyed waking each morning and seeing the sun coming up and watching the horses in the pasture. Had fresh eggs also from their own chickens. Location was what I wanted as I spent most time in Surprise. Easy access to loop and all the major streets. Quiet location, comfortable bed, warm shower with a small but convenient kitchen. Wanted to relax and get away from snow up north and this was ideal for my needs. Lucy was great letting me know when there would be people on the property servicing the yard or other outdoor routine maintenance. Highly recommend this location for a winter getaway.

This Casita is very private and welcoming. Lucy and Dave are awesome people and went out of thier way to make sure everything was taken care of. I feel like we've made new friends! Loved the fresh orange and grapefruit juice every morning, and seeing the chickens and horses first thing in the morning. We would definetly come back on our next trip to Arizona!

Clean, well kept, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week. The place was everything we imagined and more. The bed was vary comfortable. There was coffee and snacks in the kitchen. A dozen fresh eggs in the refrigerator. I went out each morning and picked an orange or tangerine, there was grapefruit also available. You can sit out on the patio and watch the sunrise and horses, while enjoying your coffee. Later in the day you watch the jets from the Airforce Base train. In the afternoon the horses come to the fence for water, pick up some carrots to feed them. Next time we go to Phoenix this will be my first choice to stay. Thank you Lucy for providing the best experience.

Beautiful property. I will miss sitting on the patio listening to the chickens and watching the horses. Everything was perfect! Felt totally at home at Casa Lucia. Will definitely return. The hosts thought of every detail! If you stay here, be sure to check out Dillon's KC Bar-b-que restaurant at the Wildlife Zoo at Northern/303. Great place!

There you will find various hiking trails, covered picnic areas and beautiful views of the entire valley. The Waterfall Trail is the most popular for hiking and is wheelchair accessible. An interesting feature of the White Tank Mountain Park is the ancient Native American petroglyphs. There is also a horse staging area within the park. Also, a beautiful new state of the art Public Library with amazing views of the mountains is a Park facility. The Library was built ecofriendly. Be sure to visit the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, just 2.8 miles away. There you can dine in a great restaurant or enjoy the many activities offered for all ages. 1 mi away is the Out West General Store, an old fashioned store with an ice cream counter, pizza and sandwiches.
