We greatly enjoyed our 9-night stay in this ‘casita’, a ‘mother in law’ unit attached to the main house of our congenial and helpful hosts, Michael and Lauri. Due to a delayed flight, we arrived several hrs later than scheduled on Xmas Eve, but our hosts had not only rearranged their holiday plans, but assisted in finding a grocery store that was still open. The casita’s fridge and pantry were well stocked with everything we would need for a week’s worth of breakfasts – cereal, milk, bread, eggs, sausage, coffee, etc. – and many other useful items such as sugar, spices, salt & pepper, cooking oil. All the counter top appliances we needed for making meals were present, even an electric coffee grinder! Michael assisted in getting our netbook connected to their WiFi, and we surfed the net flawlessly. The location of the rental – in an unincorporated area between E. Mesa and Apache Junction – was perfect for us. We spent most of our days hiking, in the nearby Superstition Mtns., McDowell Mtns., or in the adjacent Usery Mtn. Park. Having our post-hike refreshments on the rooftop deck, while watching the sunset and the desert wildlife became part of our evening ritual, usually followed by preparing our supper on the gas BBQ on the patio. We look forward to staying at this peaceful, economical casita on our next trip to Phoenix.!
