About the property

Our Property Is Approximately 3200 Square Feet.

View Sombrero Peak as you lounge by the pool/hot tub/fire pit, cook on the gourmet grill or relax under the covered patio. This peaceful, newly decorated 4 bedroom home is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, with open desert views, beautiful sunsets and excellent bird watching from your back yard.

A spacious master suite with king bed, full bath and large walk in-closet is on the lower level. The upstairs includes 3 bedrooms, (one with full/twin bunk-bed, 2 with queen beds), and a large loft which includes a sectional/ottoman and a 55 inch LED TV with DVD player. There is also a full size futon in the living room.

As you enter, to the left is a den/sitting area with a queen size futon, many games and books. To the right, a championship pool table adorns the family room, with a high top table for games. There is also a foosball table to enjoy.

The fully equipped kitchen has granite counter-tops with service for 12. The dining area seats 8 comfortably and the kitchen bar seats 3. There is a Universal Speaker system to plug in an I Phone, droid or MP 3 player which can be used outside. Wireless internet is also available.

A challenging hiking trail on Sombrero Peak is within walking distance. You will be near 2 major grocery stores, many restaurants, pizza places with children's play areas, horseback riding stables and close on/off to Interstate 10. Just 25 minutes north of the Tucson airport and 20 minutes to the University of Arizona campus. A new outlet mall just opened in 2017 and it is less than 5 miles away!!

You will also be just a short drive to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson Studios through the scenic Saguaro National Park, 3 miles to the Pines golf course, and within 5 - 15 miles of many other courses – including Dove Mountain. The entire downstairs carpet was replaced in October 2017 with wood look porcelain tile!

Fantastic House / Host!

  • 5 of 5

The house and pool / back yard is fantastic! Everything was well maintained and clean. A group of 5 of us traveled from MN for a cycling trip and this house worked great for us to ride through Saguaro National Park, Tucson / Oro Valley, and mountain bike trails at Sweetwater Preserve. The check in and check out went very smoothly. The instructions in the binder for items in the house were very clear and helpful. The owner even had a basket of snacks for us, which was appreciated after traveling all day. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Tucson.

Spectacular home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this home. Was everything as described. Pool and hot tub were incredible. Game room and fire pit incredible. TV room upstairs allowed us to spread out. Great location. Close to golf courses, local restaurants and shopping. We hope to rent again next year! Owners responded quickly!

Great place for a golf foursome

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, was perfect for four “senior” golfers, close to shopping, restaurants and golf. Would use this home again in the future.

We had a wonderful time at this property. We would recommend it to all traveling to this area, especially to families with children. We had a large diverse party with diverse needs, and this property met all of them. Lots of places to sleep, toys and pool toys for the kiddos, safety gates, a toddler chair for meals, gates around the pool for safety, lots of adult games and a great fire pit, pool table, foosball table, and hot tub...what more could you want! The kitchen was more stocked than a usual VRBO. We found this hope full of convenience and amenities. Kathy was great to work with and very flexible. We had a great time!

A must for enjoying Tucson

  • 5 of 5

My group of faculty from our college in Texas enjoyed this property while in Tucson to attend the Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Showcase. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the rooms are wonderful. We enjoyed our time sitting outside in the evenings with the spacious outdoor areas. Plenty of entertainment inside as well. Would recommend our group getting this place next year again.

A perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

A large contingent of my family came down for my sister's wedding, and Kathy's home was a wonderful fit for us! The place was spotless (with new carpet added right before we got in!), and had excellent separation of space for the 4 separate couples that were staying there. The house came prepared with every amenity amenity - a crib and carseat for my new nephew; a roomy master bedroom and ensuite; heated hot tub and pool. And the view from the pool and deck area was wonderful! Finally, and just as importantly as the home itself, Kathy was responsive to our family's requests and questions.

I would entirely recommend the place for anyone coming down, and especially for a larger group!

Thank you, Kathy!
