About Karine Maillard

My name is Karine and we own this property since 2006.

Our family had moved from California, and we fell in love with this beautiful Santa Fe house! We remodeled it with a great excitement, and enjoyed it everyday we lived there...

We decided to buy another property as our daughter needed a farm to raise animals (she is studying to become a Vet!) but we did not want to sell this place...we'll be back for retirement!

Now it is all yours, and we will be happy to provide you with a wonderful experience in the Desert.

Welcome to La Hacienda del Mayar!

Karine Maillard purchased this house in 2006

Why Karine Maillard chose Tucson

Saguaro East National Park is located accross the road...and we simply fell in love with the Desert!

We are close to town, though secluded, and the views from our property are incomparable.

With sun guaranted!!

What makes this house unique

A typical Southwesten ambience,'nothing like home'

A Santa Fe property absolutely well maintained,

Views views views!

A sparkling pool,

Wildlife and desert environment...

Hacienda del Mayar

tom (franklin, ny, usa)

Review submitted: October 17, 2012 Date of arrival: October 3, 2012

Hacienda Del Mayar was perfect for my family...as my three children, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren accompanied my wife and I to Tucson. Spacious and well appointed, this ranch on the edge of the desert captured the essence of what a vacation should be in the southwest. Everything was well thought out and our stay required little guesswork as we settled into our accommodations. The children loved the pool and the setup was such that we were able to entertain our Tuscon friends in the area in reciprocation for their hospitality.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Incredible home with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our stay at Hacienda Del Mayar. The home was incredible and they offered all the amenities we needed. We've stayed at several VRBO properties in the last 10 years, and my entire family agrees - we definitely received the BEST value for our money. We can't say enough about the owner Karine - she is a true gem! We were so impressed with her kindness, generosity and attention to detail - that it will be hard to find another VRBO owner/property as impressive as this. The Saguaro National Park offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and the most sensational views. Tucson is a great city with easy access, and we definitely were able to get the full experience of shopping, restaurants and local sight-seeing. Our family doesn't get enough opportunities to travel together, but when we do, we want a home that is a "home-away-from-home". Hacienda Del Mayar gave us a wonderful family memory which we will cherish. Thank you Karine!

Wonderful Family Vacation Hacienda

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house. We came with 3 couples and a 19 month old child in January 2018, escaping the snow up north. We loved virtually everything about the house. It is definitely worthy of a return visit.

The big family room opening up into the kitchen caught our attention first. We like to have several nights where we prepare our own eat-in dinners. The kitchen was roomy enough for 3 or 4 of us to move around without crowding. The kitchen was well equipped. The coffee / beverage counter is on the wall a few steps away, giving us lots of room. Good large dining table, and another table that became our game table. Comfortable couches for a conversation pit, and a big screen TV that we rarely used. It allowed us to be together and still have space. (And there were some toys on site for the baby to play with, high chair, and porta-crib, a great bonus.)

We loved the size of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of space and privacy if you want it. We liked the deck and porch. In January, only a couple of days were warm enough to really enjoy them properly. We did not swim due to the temperature, but we did enjoy the hot tub. The grounds were clean and well maintained.

Hiking in the National Forest was just a couple of minutes drive away. There are some easy trails, and some more challenging trails. We also enjoyed just walking down some of the nearby gravel roads. The scenery is so different from the mid-west.

We had intended to rent some bicycles for the week, but decided not to. It is a good area for a serious biker, less so for casual bikers.

When we had questions, the owner replied quickly. (A nice change from some other places we have rented.) And of course, the house was wonderfully clean when we showed up.

We were further out from downtown Tucson than I originally thought, but still went into town a couple of times. We would especially recommend the Tucson Desert Museum, west of town, as being worth a day trip (especially with kids).

Finally, we enjoyed how the hacienda was decorated. Southwest, with a touch of whimsy. There were nice touches everywhere we looked, and each of the bedrooms was unique.

So many wonderful things to say about this VRBO! Karine - the owner - was FABULOUS! So communicative and on top of everything. My only complaint is I didn't get to meet her in person to say thank you. :)

The house fit our needs perfectly - lots of room for a group to spread out. We rented the guest house as well and it was wonderful, too. The house had everything we needed and more. Kitchen well stocked, beautiful pool area, gorgeous views and lots of privacy. We will be back!

October Family Wedding Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Almost at the east end of Broadway and just off Freeman this Hacienda is simply spectacular, Having lived in the south east side of Tucson many years ago, I knew what to expect of actually being tucked away in the middle of the desert. This Hacienda does not disappoint. With spectacular views of the Catalina and Rincon Mountains I was transformed to the memories of my youth. Swimming outdoors with the open sky during the day or gazing at the multitude of stars by night.

The home is well laid out with 2 master suites and 2 additional bedrooms all with their own bathrooms. Great dining areas both in and outdoors allowed for family to reconnect and not feel crowded.

Each morning I found myself transfixed waiting for the sun to rise over the Rincon's watching the birds fly by and hummingbirds feed. In the evenings we were treated to spectacular sunsets as the clouds were painted with bright oranges and crimson.

This was a perfect home for our family reunion/wedding.

Quiet Desert Sanctuary Ideal For Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location and property features to assure a wonderful visit to Tucson to attend our daughter's wedding. Karine was wonderful to work with and we found the home in great condition when we arrived.

We rented out both the main house and the neighboring smaller cottage. Lots of space for gathering together and ample bedroom sizes and bathrooms. Kitchen was nicely stocked and we enjoyed grilling outside and dipping in the pool and sauna.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay at La Hacienda del Mayar and we would recommend the vacation rental to anyone looking for a desert oasis in Tucson!
