Super comfortable home a few steps from the wild desert!

  • 5 of 5

We were with a crowd of 12 people in May for 2 weeks. The location of this home is incredible. Having never been to the Tucson area and seen all the cacti the area has to offer, it was a wonderful adventure to be able to step out the front door, take 10 more steps and be standing in the middle of the Sonoran desert. We took lots of walks out there, particularly at sunrise and sunset. The setting is magnificent.

We also spotted wildlife, and at night the howl of the nearby coyotes sometimes sang us to sleep. The house is securely fenced and those who were less inclined to want a wildlife encounter felt entirely safe there.

The house itself is very spacious and has everything you need for a big group. The kitchen is fully equipped. There were plenty of towels (including pool towels) and linens. There are 2 1/2 baths, which was a bit tight for our crowd, but by sharing the master bath we all did fine. The pool and spa are wonderful and beautifully kept. Dinners were shared at the outdoor table just after sunset. We also enjoyed building an evening fire in the firepit. In short, we would go back in a heartbeat! Thanks Kathy for such a well-appointed home for us to use.

Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful location at the end of a cult de sac. It had all of the amenities to keep you entertained and relaxed without ever having to leave, i.e. pool, jacuzzi, fire pit, board games, pool table, etc. A definite re-visit!!

Beautiful Home with Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO and it was amazing! The home is very spacious yet still has the "homey" feeling. We had a range of ages (2-93) and everyone really enjoyed themselves. We came to Tucson for warm weather, sun and relaxation and we left having accomplished all three goals. We were fortunate enough to meet many of the people that keep the house as beautiful as it is. The house keepers were very friendly and polite (we arrived a little before check-in time and they allowed us to drop off some of groceries while they were finishing up). We met the caretaker of the pool, who tells great stories and is very kind. Mark came and assisted us when the heater to the pool was not working and was very friendly and patient to our 4yr old with all of his questions. I can't say enough for the homeowners fast response. Lots of memories were made and when we think of our time spent in Tucson we smile.

Great base for annual golf trip

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit & each time we have found the property to be comfortable, clean and in proper condition. We're 4 guys visiting for golf and this location provides a perfect base for the week - plenty of room for us and we could fit more if we had a larger group. There are nearby restaurants and grocery stores as well as convenient for navigating to other parts of the area. Kathy provides excellent customer service and the process for renting her property is easy. There is sufficient communications (before & after) as well as available folks locally who can come to our aid if needed. I really like the hot tub after long days of golf! I would recommend this location for anybody who prefers the comforts of home at a lower cost than what you'd spend at a hotel. JimH

Great property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing and was perfect for our family! We were in town for our daughters wedding in Tucson. The space is amazing, it is stocked with everything and anything you might need during your stay. The only negative thing I can say is that with helping my daughter get ready for her wedding weekend, I didn't have enough time to really enjoy the house:) I want to return to when I can lay out at the pool and relax. I cannot write enough good things about our stay!!! It is close to grocery stores, restaurants, Walmart, I-10, down town, scenic drives, anything you want or need is close by. I will be rebooking this property! Owners were very accommodating, we were expecting a flower delivery on our check in date and they let us into the house several hours earlier than we had expected.
