Tell me a little about you and who would be renting thanks

Press the contact owner button first

This town home feels more like a private home. It is built into a hillside with properties stacked so that you do not see your adjacent neighbor. You will experience 180 degree views with the nearby Santa Catalina Mountains to the North, a distant ridge to the East and undeveloped desert to the South. The South view also offers evening views of the distant lights of the city of Tucson.

The home has been recently painted and renovated with natural stone countertops, new carpeting in the bedrooms and travertine floors throughout.

You can enjoy breakfast and bird watching on the east covered patio "ramada" and dinner and star gazing on the second ramada on the south.

The open one level floor plan is light filled . There are seven skylights. The kitchen is fully equipped and has counter seating. Newer refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher. Water filter system at the sink. The teak dining table can seat six plus. The living room has new comfortable couches from Room and Board, and a new internet connected Sony 4K 54" flat screen TV.

There are two desks and high speed internet with Wifi. The two separated sleeping areas each have their own bathrooms and walk-in closets. The beds were recently purchased. There is a King bed in the Master bedroom and a Queen bed in the second bedroom. There is a newer washer and dryer and an attached two car garage No parking on the street. The driveway is short but steep.

You can enjoy a large community pool and hot tub about a five minute walk down the road or you can drive and park by the pool area.

This is a quiet residential community that has maintained significant open space to capture the beauty of the Sonoran desert.

It is a peaceful retreat that is still very convenient to several grocery stores, small malls and good restaurants and outdoor activities.

There is excellent hiking in Sabino Canyon(10 minute drive) or just out your door on the hills and washes in the neighborhood. Golf at nearby Ventana Canyon. The University of Arizona and the Tucson Museum of Art, just a 25 minute drive.

The gardens include bougainvillea, a cactus garden and many flowering shrubs and trees. Sadly our saguaro has come down, put is still in several pictures posted.

We have included a floor plan and site plan so you can see the house and the yard.

This is a non smoking property, no smoking allowed anywhere on the premises. No parties please.

This is also a no pets property. If you are looking for a quiet home with good light and views I think you will be happy here and we will be happy to share our home with you.

About Joanne

We live in Minnesota and are recently retired. We value privacy, beauty and the pleasures of our natural world as well as our created environment. We hike, bike,walk, swim and hope to learn pickle ball. Other hobbies include gardening, bird watching, reading, cooking, painting and visiting museums, oh and going to estate sales and happy hour at El Charro and watching the Vikings, Game of Thrones and eating meals outdoors.

Joanne purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Joanne chose Sunrise Presidio Townhomes

We love the variety of the views. The mountains feel so present . This is condo development was very well planned with mature plantings. All the buildings are one story and there is more open natural space than we ever expected to find. Standing on this property we have unobstructed views and a real connection to nature The area has interesting landscaping and our yard is filled with a wide variety of blooming plants, cacti and palms. We love the two outdoor covered patios . Such a pleasure to eat outside. In the evening nice to see the distant lights of Tucson.

The floor plan works really well to provide privacy when our daughters come to visit. We like the size of the pool and how well the community recreation areas are maintained. We are close to wonderful hiking in Sabino Canyon. We also can just walk out our door and get a nice walk up and down the hills in our neighborhood. If we decide to take up golfing there are so many wonderful courses near by. We enjoy concerts and lectures offered at the university and the art museums. There is always so much to discover in this interesting city. Finally there are restaurants, pharmacies, grocery stores and other goods and services available just a few minutes drive down the road

What makes this townhome unique

Tucson was just recognized as the first city in the country to be designated a UNESCO World City of Gastronomy.

There are night sky programs at Kitt Peak and near by Mt. Lemmon.

Second stay...still awesome

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, for 3 weeks. House was just as clean as our first trip; they do a great job in preparing for your stay. We didn’t want to leave. Highly recommended! Total relaxation for sure!

Great place, central for golfing and hiking

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 9 nights and really enjoyed it. It is close to great golf and hiking. The house is extremely well maintained, cleaned, and nicely decorated.

The kitchen is very well equiped if you wish to eat at home. We preferred to do this as the outdoor setting was so pleasant that we had dinner at home almost every night.

Many birds are around the house and you will probably wake up to their songs!

The garage was an added bonus allowing us to prepare inside daily for golf or hiking.

The entire process with the owner was easy and efficient.

Thanks again for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.

p.s. Do not miss hiking in Sabino Canyon and the driving up Mount Lemmon

Beautiful Place - Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Having rented for several years in Southern Arizona this was the first time we rented in Tucson - this home was very special and most welcoming. It offers location, comfort, ambiance and proximity to shopping, restaurants, Arizona University and places of local interest. What made it special were the privacy - the owners' gardens and her art - and of course the views of the city at night. We did not want for anything while there and while we had plenty of opportunity for golf, hiking, at Sabino Canyon - biking and swimming in the complex we had a week so spent time with local friends and relaxing close to home . We look forward to returning..

Five-Star Property in Catalina Foothills

  • 5 of 5

We agree totally with all of the positive reviews. The property is spotless, bright, comfortable, private, and very conveniently located. Beautiful artwork throughout. Hummingbirds visit. Views of the mountains and city are magnificent, especially the colors at sunrise and sunset. Sunrise (the road) is nearby but the master bedroom is very quiet. Electronics work perfectly. Joanne is a very responsive hostess. We give this townhome our highest recommendation!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host you both. Hope that you will be able to return again. After hosting for a couple of years now I am realizing that one regret is not getting a chance to meet all of the" kindred spirits" who have enjoyed our home.

Truly a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this lovely home was spot on. The foothills location is beautiful and provides everything from wonderful wildlife sightings to good grocery stores and conveniences to great exercise walks around the neighborhood and world class hiking nearby. The house is very clean and is full of natural light from skylights and windows with excellent views. Plus, it is tastefully decorated with special pieces of art and upgrades throughout. The kitchen is well stocked. The beds are comfortable. The size is spacious and everyone in our group of 3 adults had plenty of room to spread out. Joanne is a responsive, kind and professional host. We all felt so appreciative that she rents out this special home. It is a gem in the HomeAway community.
