Overview

Photos and Description of the Tucson vacation house rental

Spacious property with plenty of space to accomodate a horse trailer or a RV.

This 10 acre property is located in the uplands of the Sonoran Desert. It is surrounded with majestic saguaros, ironwood trees and cactus abound. The property is in a pocket of natural desert yet just 5 minutes to I10 (Twin Peaks interchange). The guesthouse sits on its own private area and can barely see the main house. You may watch Harris and Redtail Hawks flying overhead, catch a glimpse of a great western owl or a bobcat and see the roadrunner and coyotes scampering the grounds. The hummingbirds winter here as well and if you supply the nectar in the feeders they will grace your presence. The roads are dirt however we are only approx. 1/4 mile to the nearest paved road. The area has horse ranches and you are likely to see the equestrians and cowboys strolling the roads along with a mule drawn cart on occasion. It is excellent for hiking and mountain biking. There are numerous golf courses nearby from the Ritz Carlton at Dove Mtn (along with the Gallery and Heritage Highlands) - to the local county course at Arthur Pack.

The guesthouse has a master bedroom with a queen bed as well as a television. The second bedroom has a convertible sofa ( double size) or I can furnish it with a pop up trundle for those needing more sleeping accommodations. All luxury linens are included. The greatroom/kitchen offers comfort to watch 42 inch television. The house has Dish service as well as broadband internet offering speeds of 7 Mbps. There is a fireplace in the greatroom. The living room and dining room are in the Arizona Room - a room that is glass on all three sides. This room is wonderful for reading and for watching the hummingbirds and desert wildlife coming and going. The main area of the guest house has new bamboo flooring and the Arizona room is all Mexican Saltillo tile. Outside you will find 2 large covered porches, a flagstone patio and lighted ramada along with a BBQ grill. This house also has an oversized carport with a large laundry and outdoor storage room attached.

We are minutes to the U of A, downtown (Trolley) and less than 1.5 hrs to Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix. The Tucson airport is approx. 20 minutes away. Come relax and enjoy the dry warmth of the desert. Summers offer spectacular lightning events and wonderful sunsets. The heat is dry and the temps can drop 25 degrees in 15 minutes after a shower - which rarely lasts over 20 minutes.

Of course our winters are the 'high' season and what better place to escape the cold, damp weather. Late January - February will bring us the Tucson Gem Show (world’s largest) as well as the Superbowl 2015 in Phoenix. We have the Accenture Matchplay golf tournament in February as well as the Tucson Rodeo Parade- the world's largest non motorized parade before the rodeo. El Tour de Tucson - Bicycle race in November is a world class event.

My husband and I live on the property and have been in Tucson for almost 40 years raising our two (grown) sons and enjoying the southwest deserts. We are avid hikers and when not in Tucson you will find us escaping to the cool rivers of the western states or perhaps to the beaches of Mexico. We enjoy cooking, sharing recipes, tales of travels over a glass of wine. We can be quietly friendly or here to help you enjoy and plan your stay in the Tucson Desert.

Tucson is a great place to enjoy the out of doors and the multicultural heritage of the area.
