Great stay for graduation week

  • 5 of 5

Everything was beautiful and so relaxing. We had plenty of room to move and the pool and hot tub were perfect for the hot days. The outdoor grilling area made family dinners a breeze. This property was perfect for our large family and my grandson.

Lovely house, amazing surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. The interior was beautifully spacious and comfortable and decorated in great original southwestern style. The outside spaces made you truly feel you were in the middle of the desert, it was wonderfully rural and peaceful. The pool was probably one of the biggest we have had on a vacation rental , and we certainly made the most of it! The view from the upper terrace was truly breathtaking , looking over the saguaro and mesquite towards the mountains. Sitting up there on the day bed with a glass of wine is something I will always remember. The owners were very accommodating to our requests, and we are planning to return next year.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was more than my family and I could ask for. First of all, the owners are incredibly easy to work with and get back to you very quickly, which makes everything very easy. The home is amazing. My mother-in-law described it best when she said, "It's like we are staying in the middle of a Botanical Garden!" The home is beautifully decorated, the pool is wonderful and the grounds were immaculately kept up. I highly recommend this property and encourage you to stay here! We used the outdoor kitchen almost every night and my husband was very appreciative of the very nice set up and grill out there. The kitchen indoors was very well stocked with plenty of pots and pans and utensils and even a few necessities left in the pantry. The beds were very firm which was great for me as I cannot sleep on a soft bed, but they were a little too firm for my husband, but overall he slept just fine. Our 7 year old daughter was never bored with all there was to see and do in the area (the little pond is just a few steps up the road and we saw frogs, fish, dragonflies and all kinds of creatures.) We also drove to the top of Mt. Lemmon which was amazing and we spent a morning at Agua Caliente which was absolutely gorgeous. Do yourself a favor and rent this home with your family and you won't regret it! We have never stayed at such a beautiful home in all of our VRBO rentals, nor have we had such a great experience with the owners of the property. They really do everything that they can to make you feel at home and if you have any questions or concerns then they respond right away. I hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we did!

Southwest at its Best!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a true Southwest home, fantastically decorated in a beautiful location Villa Saguaro is a perfect choice. Our family of four (two adults and two young children) stayed there for eight days and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Tucson was having a bit of a heat wave while we were there so our kids spent hours and hours enjoying the pool while I fired up the BBQ in the outdoor kitchen. We then ate outdoors on the covered porch enjoying the peaceful and private setting and local wildlife.

The house was huge for the four of us and the owners provided everything we needed. Every room in the house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was also great having a three-car garage to park our rental car in with the temperatures above 112 degrees.

We spent our days going to all the interesting sights in the Tucson area and then came back to the house in the afternoons to cool off in the pool. Overall, we all had a great time and totally enjoyed Villa Saguaro. The owner did a great job with the pictures of the house but this is the first rental house we've stayed in where the house actually looks better than the pictures.

Our family gives this home and the owners are highest recommendation!

In the Lap Of Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We have spent many weeks in Arizona over the years, and this is undoubtedly one of the most elegant homes we have ever stayed in. And truly it is a home rather than just a house, and on arriving one immediately feels part of a family who has spared no expense or labor refurbishing and caring for this historic, gorgeous home and grounds. The landscape, decor and furnishings in general were beyond compare. We are a three generation family and there was plenty to see and do for all of us, indoors and out. With weather in the mid-80's all week, what's not to like?! This was a vacation for the records!

The Neighborhood

Villa Saguaro is located in the quiet east of Tuscon, where the desert begins. In this part of the town properties have 3 acres or more, giving privacy to the people living here.

The house is close to the Saguaro Park East, the Agua Caliente Park and the Catalina Highway (which leads up to Mt. Lemmon).

The desert

Living in Villa Saguaro means to be part of the desert - it is not an empty sand desert, but one with lots of plants and all kinds of animals. On top of all are the large cacti called Saguaros.


Visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum if you want to know everything about the desert and all its creatures.

The university and its neighorhood is also quite interesting, as well as the Pima Air & Space museum.

Shopping is great in Tucson with large malls and smaller shops around the university. Often you'll notice that you are close to Mexico.


A drive of 2 hours brings you to Phoenix and Scottsdale, with even higher shopping highlights. The majestic Grand Canyon in the north of Arizona can be reached in 5-6 hours.
