Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is a private home near the Coronado National Forest Wilderness Area. This 4,000 square foot contemporary Santa Fe style home is beautifully situated on the one of the highest and most scenic improved parcels in the northwest Catalina Foothills at the base of Mount Lemmon. 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, with multiple porches and decks with some of the best views of the Tucson valley.

This home is nestled into a saguaro studded hillside at an elevation of 3,200’ (Downtown Tucson is about 2,350’). It is one of the highest estates in the northwest foothills of Tucson and the view must be seen to be believed. During the day, you can see the mountains on the Mexican border (68 miles away) and at night, the sea of lights of metro Tucson are below you. Behind the home is designated wilderness area filled with wildlife and improved hiking trails off of Pima Canyon. We have personally seen the following birds and animals in our yard: giant owl; giant hawk, bobcat, deer, javelina, coyote, humming bird, rabit and various other species. The daytime temperatures in the summer are about 4 degrees less than downtown because of our elevation and the nighttime temperatures in the winter run at least 5 degrees warmer because we are off of the valley floor.

It is only minutes away from many activities:

-Golf at Arizona National (formerly the Raven) in 10 minutes, Ventana Canyon in 25 minutes, and many more great golf courses within 30 minutes.

-Grocery shopping, restaurants, drug stores, and virtually everything you might need to purchase on a day to day basis are within 8 minutes.

-La Encantada, Tucson's premier dining and shopping venue, is 5 minutes away.

-St Phillips Plaza, another exclusive shopping and dining location, is about 10 minutes away.

-Tucson Mall is about 10 minutes away.

-University of Arizona is about 20 minutes

-Downtown Tucson is about 25 minutes

Peaceful, Private, Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

Strom's Eagle's Nest has a fabulous view of the Tucson Valley, without a lot of noise. We were here in January and could keep the bedroom patio door open at night to hear crickets and the occasional coyote--but the city of Tucson is far enough away that there is almost no city noise. The pool and spa were great, and Strom's policy to simply charge you for whatever gas you use to heat them is straightforward and fair. It was roomy, furnished nicely and equipped with plenty of kitchen stuff--as well as many spices and ingredients that you'd likely forget to bring with you. Beds comfy, bathrooms clean, very relaxing all around!

One person appeared next door to water plants daily, otherwise we didn't notice the proximity of the adjoining house. We would definitely recommend staying here and would ourselves again, except that on walking around the neighborhood we found a home for sale and we SO LOVE this location that we are beginning the process to buy it and become Strom's neighbor!

Luxury retreat in quiet and secluded setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as three couples on a golfing vacation and respite from the cold back home. The Sin Vacas House was nearly ideal for our needs and as importantly our desires for living and socializing together. The location was like a secluded mountain cabin but with the amenities of a luxury home. We prepared meals easily in the well stocked kitchen when not sampling the fares locally. Strom was helpful when we had an isssue and a joy to work with. All in all a great experience!

Absolutely beautiful home and neighborhood and excellent host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time at Strom's house. Three fabulously large master bedrooms, incredible views, and impeccably furnished/decorated home (I'd like to know who the decorator was - LOVED this house). Strom was a perfect host, gave us a grand tour, house was fully stocked, and he was accessible for any questions. Great jogging and biking in the area - just gorgeous. Private gated community, very safe. Best part of our trip to Tucson was this house. Thank you Strom!

This is a beautiful and comfortable home with views for every mood!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation home! There are three completely separate, very large master suites. One has its own seating area and two have fireplaces. Three couples could very comfortably share this home and still have their privacy. The open concept living area and kitchen have incredible views. The wall to wall windows in the living room overlook the city of Tuscon..... how it twinkles at night! From the dining room and kitchen the full flavor of desert living is yours. The outdoor space takes in the full spectrum of your desert environment... unbelievable mountain views, the cactus and scrub and the city lights... all so different yet so beautiful! We had a hard time deciding which of the three patio areas to sit on or there is the wrap around porch to consider as well. The pool is wonderful for floating or cooling off. The sunsets are beyond belief.....the sun reflecting the pinks and purples on to the mountains, the thunder heads that gather and light up the sky and from the front yard the brilliant red and orange sky.

The owner, Strom is so welcoming. He was there to greet us and show us around. We were much more relaxed knowing that he was available if needed. As an added bonus he was able to recommend a massage therapist that came to the house and gave my husband and I the best massages of our lives!

Meeting Strom, the gorgeous, spacious home and the incredible views make this one of our more memorable vacations!!! Thank you Strom for giving us this unforgettable experience!!!!

About Strom

I am a computer engineer who has traveled and lived around the world but have chosen to settle in Tucson due to its temperate climates, spectacular scenery, and abundant wildlife.

Strom purchased this house in 2010

Why Strom chose Sin Vacas

This property simply has one of the most spectacular views in Southern Arizona. You can see mountains in Mexico over 80 miles away!

What makes this house unique

I like sitting on the porch or in the hot tub in the evenings enjoying the spectacular sunsets and the amazing city lights.
