About Jill brooker

I am an avid traveler and am a hiker, bicycler, scuba diver, and skiier. I also love meeting people from all over the globe which I get to do in my travels but would love to do in Tucson as well. I am a former high school teacher and teen therapist. My daughters are both in graduate school.

Jill brooker purchased this house in 1987

Why Jill brooker chose Marana

It is a quiet peaceful desert environment but is close to all amenities. It is a 15 minute drive to downtown, 3 minutes to the Sahuaro Monument West, and within 30 minutes of all attractions in the Tucson area.

What makes this house unique

This is a quiet setting, very peaceful. You will sleep well and can have coffee out on your private patio.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her husband met me in Tucson for a family wedding and we wanted some place place close to the venue. We found it and a lot more! This house is spacious and included 2 bedrooms( master and another bedroom), full size kitchen, large living room,wet bar, big screen T.V., two bathrooms and nice furnishings.This was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. There is so much this location has to offer such as javalina, rabbits and birds. Did I mention stars? The desert sky was fantastic while listening to a chorus of coyotes. I highky recommend staying here and it is close to several attractions.

The owner, Jill, was gracious and welcoming.

I am looking forward to my next stay here.

Owner's Response: Keith and his family were wonderful guests. They arrived exactly when they said they would, and when they checked out, the place was absolutely spotless. Although I didn't get to meet Keith, I did get to meet his daughter and son-in-law who were very nice, friendly people. I highly recommend these guests and am looking forward to meeting Keith on his next visit to Tucson. These guests are welcome back at any time!

Lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

This basement apartment was roomy and very clean. The kitchen is well equipped with all you will need to prepare meals. It is situated on a lovely property outside of Tucson, but is very accessible to the freeway for Tucson activities.

Peaceful Desert Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a home in the midst of the action of Tucson, this is the wrong home for you, but if you want a peaceful home, netled in the midst of a beautiful desert setting then this is the home for you. Four of us spent a week in this Marana home set on two acres. This two bedroom, two bath home was the perfect fit for the four of us. It was clean with a fully furnished kitchen and a washer ad dryer. While the decor is less than special, the furniture and beds were very comfortable. The outdoor patio was peaceful.

I especially appreciated the fact that Jill, the owner, quickly responded to any questins or needs.

Owner's Response: Jo, Howard, and their friends were wonderful guests. They were respectful and very nice people who took care of the home like it was their own. They even gave me some helpful suggestions for some improvements which I immediately implemented. It seems as if they had a very busy week here taking in the "natural beauty" of the desert and the local attractions. I highly recommend Jo and her travel companions as guests.Also, thank you for the wonderful guest sign-in book! I never thought of it and it was a perfect idea - so appreciate it. :) Jill
