About Deanie Burris

Hello, I am a Tucson native. My grandparents moved here in 1946 to escape the cold weather back East. My parents, my husband and our children all graduated from a school in the Amphitheater district. My husband and I have raised 3 amazing children in the NW area of Tucson. We are proud grandparents of 5 and spend much of our time outdoors with them. We love Tucson and the wonderful climate that allows us to spend time outdoors nearly year around. One of our favorite hikes as kids was to seven falls located in the Sabino Canyon area and one of our favorite places to visit is the Tucson Desert Museum. You will find that we have a lot of hiking and biking trails, tons of golf courses private and public and many outdoor activities. All though Tucson and its surrounding area have approximately 1 million people, we still have the small town feel.

Deanie Burris purchased this villa in 2000

Why Deanie Burris chose Arizona

We love this location! My grandparents purchased the main home in 1962 and lived here for 30 years. We have been here 25 and raised all of our children. Now our kids and grandkids are just blocks away. We love the area and how convienient it is to shopping, dining and more. We can't imagine living anywhere else so we built this private casita in 2010 with its own driveway and entrance for our out of town guests. It is tastefully decorated and well equipped. We have had guests stay as long as 5 months and raved about how much they love it.

What makes this villa unique

This casita is located in a very quiet area and sits among homes on large lots. It has the most amazing mountain views from the sofa inside to the covered patio. The mesmerizing sunsets hit the mountain and turn it pink in the evening. You will see wildlife if you keep your eyes open. We have lots of bunny's, quail, lizzards and even an occasional bobcat or Javelina (but don't let them see you or they will disappear). You will get the true desert experience and just be a few blocks from anything you need. Trader Joes, Walmart, Carrabba's Italian, and more are less than a mile away.

Ideal Temporary Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but fine things to say about this accommodation and the wonderful landlady. The place is fully stocked with everything one would need for a pleasant short-term [or even long-term] stay [including hairdryer!], and it is well-situated for the places we needed to visit. It is clean, quiet, roomy, and well-appointed. And Ms Burris is available by cellphone/text for any stupid or sensible questions [none of which she deems stupid!]. I recommend any place Ms Burris handles without a second thought, and my family will be going to her places on our next visits to Tucson.

We really enjoyed our stay here.

  • 4 of 5

What we liked best about this property was how quiet it was. Even though it was in town it felt very private yet all the conveniences we we nearby. Everything we needed was there just as advertised and it was neat and clean. I am a cyclist and one of the main reasons we come to Tucson is to get some winter riding time. This property is within a short low traffic bike ride to one of the main trail heads. This was our first experience with this type of vacation so I had several conversations with the owner and she made me feel very comfortable. We will be coming back.

Comfortable and close to shopping, bike trails and freeway.

  • 3 of 5

This is a good place to stay with a pet. The backyard is very spacious. Our first impressions were a little disappointing when driving up. The driveway needs paving and the garage door looked like someone hit it. The windows were dirty as were the floors. The pool and hot tub down the street that are part of the complex were clean but not heated. The tennis court was cracked with huge holes. There was a nice children's playground that my grandson enjoyed near by. Our friends who rented in a large community with very nice facilities and a larger home paid the same as us. The owner was friendly and easy to work with but this definitely was no bargain for what we got!

Owner's Response: It is hard to please everyone all the time, but we try our best. The garage door that had been damaged by a previous guests was already scheduled to be replaced but we make an effort to not disturb our guests during their stay. The unit was built in the early 80's so the windows were clean but water stained (we are considering replacing those as well). I am not sure why they felt the floor was dirty as it is swept and mopped between every checkout. Perhaps it was tracked in by their undisclosed pet or during their move in process. The pool and spa are operated by the HOA and only heated from April to June at which time they are warm enough to use without the heater. The road is maintained by Pima county and nearly all of our roads need work especially in the neighborhoods. Road maintenance is one of Tucson's biggest issues. We are truly sorry they felt the did not get what they paid for. We make every effort to provide a safe, secure and pleasant experience for our guests.

Located in NW area of Tucson. Not far from Oro valley. Please call for actual address. Map shown is a little off. This casita is just a few blocks from major shopping, dining, movie theater, starbucks and just about anything you need. Easy access to Interstate 10 from Ina Road or Cortaro Rd.

There are a lot of hiking trails, golf courses and outdoor activities in Tucson and the surrounding areas. This location is close to many of them. A must see would be Sabino Canyon and Desert Museum. Downtown Tucson is a great place for nightlife and dining. You can catch the Tram at many areas down their and tour the downtown area, 4th ave and University Blvd. A one day pass is $4 and you can get off and on for the entire day.
