Thank you for your interest in our vacation home, Casa Tortolita. We would welcome you as a guest. However, I always like to be sure that people have read our advertisement closely. Let me point out a few of the adv's and disadv's of Casa Tortolita so that you have a clear vision of our little home.
The advantages include the budget price for a fully equipped and furnished home. It is on a private 3 acres and if you are bird watchers you will awake most mornings not to the sound of traffic but the sound of birds. The home is equipped with a jacuzzi which can warm up to 104, I find it especially nice to use at night. Because the setting is somewhat out in the country the night time stars are amazing. There is also a gas bbq and outdoor table and chairs as well as a small firepit. While the home is not fancy with all the bells and whistles it certainly is comfy and cozy and we have provided cable tv, a small library of over 100 dvd and vhs titles, a few boardgames, and a small book library as well.
The disadvantages of Casa Tortolita (some that I list many people will actually feel they are advantages - simply a matter of taste) the home is somewhat out in the country. Don't get me wrong it is minutes away from shopping, the public library, movie theater, multiple restaurants, etc. However, it is accessed up a private dirt driveway that dips down and then up a hill. The good part of that is better views the bad part is the car will get dirty on the dirt road and muddy during our monsoon season (July and August). Also, the zoning in this area is a little puzzling. There are million dollar custom homes built on a parcel of land and on the next could be people living in a RV. Country living can be like that. Casa Tortolita is within walking distance of several beautiful new custom homes as well as two difft parcels of land with people living in RV's. I think one is only here temporarily but the other is long term and they have created quite a collection of odd and eclectic items on their land (ie junk). Everyone is friendly but you do drive by a couple of pretty run down places, again just a couple houses away from the custom homes and our own Casa Tortolita. Even though you are on 3 acres, there are neighbors, however everyone is also on acreage as well, so its not like you are ontop of each other either. Really it is quite peaceful, and if anyone ever ends up in your driveway they must be lost because the driveway is only for Casa Tortolita. There is a gate at the end of the driveway that you can keep closed and locked if you wish as well. The home is on it's own well so the cold water pressure isn't fantastic, the hot water pressure is good - for example you do have to hold the handle down on the toilet a little longer to flush
Casa Tortolita is a manufactured home. It is a 2 bedrm home with a split floor plan which means one bedrm in front and one bedrm all the way at the back of the home. There is no internet at the home, however there is free internet at several locations within a minute or 2 drive (McDonalds, Starbucks, Public Library, Bashas) just to name a few places nearby. There is no washer or dryer - the laundry mat again is a minute or two away. I think I have covered it pretty well, overall it is a comfortable, cozy home on a private 3 acres of land. It has a hot tub, bbq grill, cable tv, and pretty good views. It is not fancy but it is clean, comfortable, budget priced, and equipped with everything you will need while you visit and enjoy the wonderful southwest part of our country. This is our link to our website that does have some of our other homes in Tucson - if Casa Tortolita is not a good fit, perhaps one of our others will interest you.
