GORGEOUS ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
Our tennis group enjoyed our stay at Desert Winds, name of this house, very much. The views of the city lights and the stars at night were spectacular! The home is very spacious. The house was tastefully decorated and provided everything you could need or want. We especially enjoyed the pool and the spa. Great place to sit on a patio or in the spa to contemplate life! Very quiet neighborhood and the cacti outside each house made the neighborhood looks artistic. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again if I ever go back to Tucson.

GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
The view is fabulous, mountains by day and city lights by night! Lots of dimmer switches throughout property for great evening effect. Home is much bigger than the pictures depict. We had 3 families stay for 10 days and never got in each others way. Owner is also very available for questions.

GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
The home is much larger than depicted in the photos, we had 3 families staying for 10 days and never got in each others way. The view from the back pool area is fabulous, mountains by day and city lights by night. Andy is very accommodating, we needed more towels and he was right over to help. The pool was a little chilly but March is still winter in Tucson, so the nights cool it down. I was still able to swim laps everyday and it was refreshing when it got hot. My only suggestion would be, that the cleaning service use a scented sanitizer, there was a strong smell of amonia when we checked in, but was gone after we opened up the house, wasnt a problem for us but other people might complain. We had a great time!

FAMILY TRIP

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 12 stayed here, we enjoyed our stay however was slightly disappointed that pool was not warmer and the spa leaked...we booked this early in the summer so I had not read the October post regarding the pool and spa. we were able to use the spa but had to fill daily due to the leak from Oct not being fixed yet. We too had to call for towels, we did find some but there was a limited supply. the house was clean and smelled freshly cleaned when we arrived, Andy was very friendly to work with and offer quick replies each time I contacted him. I would say that overall the price and house are fair, we needed room for 12... this worked very well, but I would agree that house is in need of a update...the setting is wonderful, very easy access to area attractions, quiet neighborhood. I would consider staying again because of size, price and location .

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Dixie....the pool maintenance folks have been contacted regarding the valve issue with the spa - I am glad we found a workaround so you were able to enjoy it during your visit. For future reference - we have an overstock supply of extra towels and linens available if ever needed - just ask! Happy 2014!
