About Mary and Ray Visco

We are a retired professional couple. We moved here from northern California. We love the lifestyle in this ranching community and the beauty of the surroundings. There is so much to do and see. We are still discovering so much. We ride our horses often. Ray loves to play pool and I play the fiddle. We have a blessed life here.

Mary and Ray Visco purchased this house in 2005

Why Mary and Ray Visco chose Arizona

We bought this property because it is actually in the Coronado National Forest. It has easy access to trails for hiking and riding.

What makes this house unique

It is in the National Forest so we won't have new neighbors. It will stay pristine foothills and grasslands if we manage it correctly. We have immediate access to miles of trails and it is centrally located in the Arizona wine country.

Wonderful rental, location and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The rental was clean, wonderfully appointed and had everything you could possibly need. The location was gorgeous and walking trails were out your back door. Mary was a gracious host and welcomed us with breakfast essentials and a treat basket. This was definitely one of the best vrbo rentals we have stayed in. Thanks Mary and we will see you again soon!!

Ideal Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What's not to like? Gorgeous setting, beautiful and well appointed lodging and super nice people! Enjoy the views from your patio which includes a fire pit and grill. Watch horses in the pasture and deer in the National Forest that is adjacent to the property. Scaled quail visit the bird feeders providing entertainment. Hike the hills in your back yard! I guarantee you won't be disappointed with your stay.
