About Rhonda Berdan

Rhonda is from New England and Scott is from the Detroit area. We have 3 adult children: A son in the USCG stationed in SC; a son who is a chef in Salem, MA; and a daughter attending college in AZ. Rhonda's mom has retired in nearby Vail, AZ and is a huge part of our Tucson lives. Now we want to share our good fortune and offer our home to you! If you have any questions or concerns while visiting, we will be nearby to offer local advice or attend to your household's needs.

Rhonda Berdan purchased this house in 2011

Why Rhonda Berdan chose Tucson

After raising our children on a 1 acre property, we decided to downsize. We have many friends who live or have lived in this wonderfully planned community and fell in love with the spacious rooms and floor plan, 100 percent tile flooring, 40 foot long North facing covered patio to start and end the day, corner lot adding room for landscaping and additional guest parking, and a private 9 foot deep pool with diving board to cool off any time we feel like it. SOLD!

Groceries, restaurants, churches, pizza deliveries, hair and nail salons, and basically all of the shopping options you would expect in a planned community are blocks away. Our most recent addition is a Dunkin' Donuts and a brand new Walmart located just 2 miles from the house.

What makes this house unique

We look forward to you filling this space - this home is so comfortable!

Paradise in the City

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this home gorgeous but it had absolutely everything we could possibly need. Not only that, the owner was very attentive/ friendly and communication was fantastic. Even left cheese and crackers for us. Got my deposit back within 4 days! Backyard and pool we're gorgeous! Nothing bad to say about this gem! Only thing I might suggest is a set of steak knives! This house was perfection and all 8 of us that stayed there and my pooch highly recommend it and will be back next year!!

This is the most beautiful vacation home in Tucson.

  • 5 of 5

Three sisters shared a reunion in this incredible resort like home. We had everything we could need or want, and then some. The home owners added their personal touches throughout the spacious home and made us feel so welcomed. We look forward to more memories in Tucson and hope to call this vacation home our special place for many years to come. THANK YOU Rhonda and Scott for your generosity and sincerity in all you do. Kim, Terri and Julie

Relaxing Desert Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the spacious home. It was perfect for our large family. The backyard was beautiful and the pool was very relaxing. The diving board was much fun. We cooked often and had family over for dinner just about every day. The Rita Ranch area is quiet and is surrounded by beautiful desert plant life. We look forward to visiting again next year.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! It felt like home right away. The pool was a perfect way to end each day of sightseeing. We went to Mt Lemmon, Titan II museum, Prima Air and Space museum, Arizona- Sonoran museum, sabino canyon, Colossal Cave and did the Wild Tour!! What a great adventure!! Rhonda was the kindest and most welcoming host we've had in 15 years renting vacation homes. She is a true gem. The house had all the comforts of home and the bed was so comfortable. We didn't want to leave.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The environment of the yard was perfect for enjoying our morning coffee. The plants in the backyard are beautiful, and so many sitting areas so you can enjoy different views. The house has a great layout. The house is comfortable, roomy and perfectly decorated. The pool is awesome!

Lovely family home

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay! The pool was a definite win for the kids. Outside patio was nicely landscaped and made for wonderful early mornings. Comfortable beds, tasteful decoration and all the little extras. Great value!

Perhaps the best feature of our home is the proximity to I-10, Valencia and Houghton Roads. You will save a lot of time when you plan your daily activities and explorations. Whatever interest draws you to Tucson, rest assured you will be pleased with your start/ending home base - your comfortable home away from home to decide "what's next?". In SE Tucson, that is truly a loaded question! Day trips rarely have the appeal of easy planning - but you will be in the perfect spot to make your brief or extended visit a fond memory. As long term residents, we look forward to assisting you customize your plans and more importantly, provide you with a desirable accommodation.
