About the property

Three bedroom Santa Fe home on four acres with pool. Three days minimum.

Hale Bonita in Northwest Tucson is a soothing retreat on four acres, with privacy and expansive desert and mountain views. The home is appointed with art, comfort and technology to delight.

This vacation rental welcomes a gentle occupancy and does not allow parties or events.

Hale Bonita – so named in the Hawaiian-Spanish translation of “Beautiful House” is a Santa Fe contemporary, with a solar heated pool and 3 bedrooms. Entry to the property is by way of a private paved road, leading to the brick circular drive. As you enter the home, you are welcomed by the warmth and style of a private resort.

The Living Room is appointed with art, comfortable contemporary furniture in a conversational grouping with a 60 inch HD TV hidden behind doors. An audiophile B&W speaker system, Blu-Ray + CD player and premier television programming leave little to desire in home entertainment. There is a gas fireplace for those winter nights.

The kitchen is perfect for enjoying meal preparations while being a part of the living/dining room and the desert and mountain view. The kitchen is appointed with granite surfaces, a Viking range, a modern microwave + convection oven and a generous refrigerator. There is a washer and dryer in a utility room.

The Master suite is a warm and cozy retreat from the day. Wake up in the California King bed, looking out the French Doors, beyond the lawn and pool, to the view of desert and mountains. A generous walk-in closet will set you right at home with its custom built-ins. The Master Bath is large and airy with a Jacuzzi tub and an artistically designed pebble-stone shower.

The middle bedroom has a Queen Bed and a private vanity that enters into a full bath. The small bedroom has a Double Bed, with lots of light and art and shares the full bath through a Jack-’n-Jill doorway. A travel-photography gallery of prints adorn these two rooms. There are two full baths and one guest half-bath.

The landscaping was designed to incorporate the best of the Sonoran Desert with a touch of Sonoran tropical. The solar heated (mid-March - mid-November) swimming pool is surrounded by a garden of lush plants and trees. A heated Spa overlooks the pool deck and garden. Swim, Spa, relax, barbecue on the gas grill or head out from the back gate onto the dirt roads for biking or hiking in this ranch style horse community.

Cathy and I enjoy the house seasonally, together with Oliver the cat.

The home is 7 minutes from the I-10 freeway ramp – 15 minutes to downtown Tucson and 30 minutes to mid-town.
