The house was clean and well stocked. Beds were comfortable and linens were all appropriate and nice quality. The kids loved the pool table and dart board! Thank you for a lovely stay.

We really enjoyed the property and it's amenities. It was very private and located in a very quiet and relaxing part of Tucson. It was very close to the Mt Lemmon hwy which had some amazing views of Tucson.

October 21 through October 31, 2016. Above expectations, totally enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with Home Away.com. We reviewed properties in Tucson AZ, and applied to Desert Sun Sport. From the beginning, the property owners, Maria and Carla were very responsive and informative. We found the property to be as expected, and we were pleased to see that everything we would need was provided. The home as well as the pool and hot tub were clean and ready when we arrived. The check in and check out was entirely seamless. The location, and views were pleasing, I highly recommend this property, we plan to return in the future. That you so much Maria for a very enjoyable experience.

Perfect place in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Desert sun sport was the perfect spot for our week in Tucson. The house is located in a quiet secluded area away from the hustle and bustle of the city but convenient to local shopping, dining and area attractions. The owners included lots of extras such as trash bags, shower gel, shampoo, toilet paper, dishwashing soap and quite a few condiments for cooking. Check the cabinets before going to the grocery store. It is in a beautiful setting with lots of wildlife wandering thru the property. The home is well appointed - inside and out. We especially enjoyed afternoons and early evening around the pool. And couldn't wait to slip into the most comfortable beds and pillows. I really enjoyed the step down shower. We loved our week in Tucson and didn't realize there was so much to see and do in the area. This was our first visit but hope to come back at some future time.
