Overview

About the property

Charming casita is spacious 800 sq ft on a very private, quiet 1.4 acres.

******* Certified WILDLIFE HABITAT *******

The Retreat on Cloud Nine just received certification from the National Wildlife Federation and Arizona Wildlife Federation as a Wildlife Habitat!

The Casita at the Resort on Cloud Nine has all of the same beautiful natural resource amenities of the nearby exclusive Miraval Resort without the resort pricing! Within Sutherland Heights, it sits high on a bluff, off a private road with easy access to unlimited hiking, biking and horseback trails. Enjoy unsurpassed dramatic mountain views during the day and at night, view spectacular Milky Way and constellation formations from your own private observation deck, floating in the pool or gathered around a camp fire.

This charming casita sleeps 2 and is comfortably furnished with a spacious living room, dining area, full kitchen, bedroom with a queen bed and sitting area plus an oversized bathroom and walk-in closet space. Also includes a private observation deck, cozy evening seating around a fire pit and use of the pool and laundry facilities. Wi-Fi /Internet access plus TV satellite with premium channels is also provided at no additional cost.

If a peaceful, private environment with a plethora of wild life surprises is what you are looking for this is the place for you! Bunnies and quail can be seen from every window along with visits from cardinals, hawks, roadrunners, lizards and owls (a great horned owl rules the area at night). And you haven’t even left the back yard!

There is unlimited hiking in the area with access to the Coronado State forest land only a quarter of a mile away. The Fifty Year Trail, one of the area’s premier mountain biking paths is right down the road.

Another big plus, although you are in an amazing private environment, civilization is close by. You are within 5 minutes to a grocery store, 20 minutes to a shopping cinema complex with not only good Mexican cuisine but some of the best Indian, Chinese and steakhouse eateries in the Tucson / Oro Valley area. Travel another 15 minutes and you will find yourself in the upscale foothills area with La Encantada shopping and more restaurants. Or head in the other direction to experience the newly renovated Tucson downtown area providing a thriving music and night time scene complete with a new streetcar line.

Enjoy the resort atmosphere and a little slice of heaven when you stay at the Casita on Cloud Nine. We are looking forward to your visit!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Took my bride here for our 20-year anniversary and could not be more happy. Quiet, secluded and able to just enjoy being together. Inside the casita looks like a model home and has everything a couple could need for a weekend stay.

Beyond compare

  • 5 of 5

Property is quiet, private, secluded, has outstanding views, and borders an extensive trail network near and into the Catalina Mountains. Carol could not have been more accommodating. Both the casita, and the outside grounds, were obviously appointed by a competent professional designer. All of the many decorative pieces were perfect. The affect of the property in general, together with the active rabbits, quail, and numerous other birds, is to make a guest feel in paradise.

Great quiet place for a few days of vacation in nature

  • 5 of 5

This was a great comfortable place with all necessary amenities available, in a peaceful secluded area out of city and traffic. We enjoyed being in the middle of nature with a lot of birds and close to good hiking trails.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Casita far and away exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for us in every way. The interior was perfectly decorated and very clean and comfortable. It was also larger than the photos made it appear. We enjoyed relaxing after breakfast and again after dinner in the comfortable Casita. The grounds were amazing. Lots of spaces to sit and read or just relax and look at the mountains. Beautiful views from the yard and from the Casita roof. With all of this the best part for us was the closeness of access to the hiking trails. About a 10 minute walk put us out into the desert trails running north, south and east from Sutherland plateau. The trails were great and that's where we spent much of our time. We don't mountain bike but if we did it would be a great place to bike. And all of the cyclists were met were very friendly and gave us ideas for various trails to hike on.

The location made us feel like we were away from civilization but we were still only a 15-20 minute drive from lots of shopping and good restaurants. We also joined a Planet Fitness Club for the month we were there that was only about 15 minutes away and often combined our trips there with any shopping we had to do.

Finally, Carol and Joe were great hosts and really take care of the place. We enjoyed talking with them very much. We could not rate our month there any higher. It was perfect!
