About Eric and Christy Gieser
Our family lives in Alaska but loves to spend time with our extended family in Tucson.
Eric and Christy Gieser purchased this Mobile Home in 2013
Why Eric and Christy Gieser chose Tucson
We bought this property as a way to have easy access to one of our favorite vacation spots and to thaw out from the cold Alaska winters. Did we mention the view?!

Beautiful and secluded with many amenities
This rental is an exceptional value. We loved every part of staying here. It's remote without feeling completely isolated (although the brass sign at the entrance down below is easy to miss.) Everything was comfortable and high end without making me feel like I had to tip toe around. The house is incredibly well-stocked, from kitchen and bar equipment, to linens, to sundries to games and books. The internet is so-so and the Direct TV was great for down time. The master bedroom mattress wasn't the greatest and I didn't like that the master bedroom skylight didn't have blinds or some sort of curtains...sunrise in summer is early and there were a couple of mornings I didn't want to be up with the sun. I read other reviews about the unheated pool being too cold but in June is it was absolutely perfect. The hot tub and the mini putting green were really fun, too. There was a learning curve for me on the A/C so make sure you read the directions in the book on the table as soon as you come through the door. Lots of room for family fun, lots of really well done outdoor space. We will be back to this one.
We visited nearby Catalina State Park and Biosphere2. This was a three-day pitstop on a three week road trip and this house is a great place to relax and have some downtime. Oh, and NONE of the pictures of the view do it justice. These mountains are stunning.
P.S. I didn't see the Coyotes but I could sure hear them!
Thank you very much for the detailed review. We take comments and suggestions to heart and modify accordingly. So glad you found some R & R at our place. Please come again!
Very Nice House
Great house that has a very private setting. It was very well stocked and furnished. All we needed to buy was our own food. The owners were very helpful and we had zero problems. Great pool and view of the mountains.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We strive to make things as hassle free as possible for our guests. Love to have you back!
Truly an Oasis!
Gorgeous views! Definitely enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub. Close enough to go to several interesting sites. Home was very comfortable and owner provided games and many items for our comfort! Would definitely book again
Thank you for your review. So happy you enjoyed the property. Please come back!
Great place, great views!
We were really happy with the house and amenities. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked, there were lots of games and pool toys, the views are great, and everything was very clean! It was a bit of a drive to get to the places we wanted to see (for example: Sabino Canyon and the Desert Museum), but we knew the location wasn't central and the house/pool/views made up for it. And it was quiet, although we did hear coyotes one night! The only things that would make the stay perfect would be a heated pool and not having to take the garbage and recycling somewhere.
A CLEAN, RELAXING VACATION WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEWS
This was a great VRBO experience. Eric and Christy's place was wonderfully spaced, nicely decorated, and very peaceful. The views were amazing and we loved the variety of birds that we woke to each morning having coffee on the patio. Everything was clean and we were shocked by the amenities that were provided if needed. The only cons were the bed was too bouncy soft in the master (We are memory foam sleepers) and wished it was a king. The pool was too cold for me, but my son braved the water and was happy. Be aware that you are responsible for your own trash...$20, so try to go only once. The transfer station is a short drive. For the price of this rental we didn't mind the extra cost, but it was a surprise on arrival. Maybe it's the way they do it in Arizona? Overall the pros outweighed any cons. We got to meet David Levy (amateur astronomer)....😊�, heard a pack of coyotes feet from the hot tub, and had spectacular clear skies!
Would recommend this home!!!
Thank you for your review. So happy you enjoyed the stay overall. Regarding the trash fee, we had to decide between having guests take a large garbage receptacle up and down the long driveway hill, or just pay a small fee and transport garbage a short drive away. It is a small trade off for having a secluded location and amazing view. Please come again!
Perfect getaway home!!!
The house was absolutely amazing. It was very well stocked. The outside patio is nice and big with the most amazing view of the Catalina Mountains. The kids enjoyed the pool and the mini golf area. The pool was a bit cold, but the jacuzzi is nice and warms you up quickly. Eric and Christy were super nice and whenever we had any questions their response time was very quick. We will definitely be staying here again. It is the perfect getaway for the family.
Thank you for the great review! So glad your family enjoyed your stay. We are looking into heating the pool. Please come back anytime...you were wonderful guests.
