Where To Put The Winter Visitors? Think CASITA!
Tucson Real Estate Blog Post – January 5, 2018
And a question we are asked by many of our clients is “Where are we going to put all out guests?”.
The Holiday Inn is always an answer. But for those wanting to be a bit more friendly, a home with a casita OR guest house may be the answer.
In the early days, Casitas were for the servants of the house. But today, they function as guest quarters. Some are free standing structures. Others have an entrance from the home to the guest house. Casitas can be simple or luxurious. It all depends on your budget.
But remember! The more luxurous, the longer your guests are likely to stay.
