About Christi and Paul

Christi & Paul live on Cape Cod year 'round, but enjoy the SW US a lot, because it's so different from home! Paul is a writer, and Christi a financial advisor.

Christi and Paul purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Christi and Paul chose Tucson

Tucson has it ALL year-round!!!

What makes this townhome unique

Peace and quiet is yours if you like! The views of the Santa Catalina Mtns was the best of all the houses we looked at! It's close to the 'great outdoors', as well as culture, shopping, dining, and everything else Tucson has to offer!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is equipped with everything, we didn't miss anything, and most important, it has been nicely furnished by the owners. Inside and outside you recognize that they put their hearts in furnishing, equipping and maintaining the house.Communication with the owners (very flexible) was very easy, friendly, prompt and reliable. (Very important for us!) Description and pictures let you expect a lot and you know what: We felt that we got very much more than we expected. The site of the house either lets you stay by yourself just to relax or communicate with the neighbors (whatever your mood is). Views of the surroundings (mountains, desert, cacti etc.) are spectacular and considering all the things you can do there, we only did a few. Why? Patio House has seating spots in nearly every corner of the garden allowing you to relax depending on position of the sun, what we enjoyed very much. Considering everything, it has been a Five-Star feeling for us.

Thank you Christi and Paul.

Lovely Tucson retreat feels like "Home"

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Patio House where we found a perfect setting. The small details are worth mentioning: the tasteful decor, the well stocked and up- to- date kitchen, and the beautiful patios surrounding the home. We enjoyed our meals out of doors keeping company with the humming birds. The beds were very comfortable and compare to a luxury hotel! Patio House is in an excellent location, very close to Sabino Canyon for hiking, golfing very close by, and shopping, restaurants and entertainment just minutes away. (If you love the Blues and Jazz, go to the nearby Hog Pit on Wednesday nights). The common grounds are beautifully maintained with many mature trees. We used the pool often and found friendly folks there who shared their knowledge of the area. We both recommend Patio House as a great vacation destination.

Perfect Patio House

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at the Patio Townhouse and had a wonderful time. The owner is very professional to work with. She had a Representative meet us at the home on arrival and showed us around, very helpful. I rushed to take photos inside and out as it was so pretty. Very clean, nicely furnished, comfortable townhouse. There was just the two of us, but also perfect for 2 couples, or a family. We played golf at Randolf North, Arizona National and Ventana Canyon Mountain course. My favorite was Arizona National because of the wildlife, and fantastic landscaping. We saw loads of rabbits, roadrunners and a bobcat. Also got fantastic photo of sunset turning the mountains pink when we came off the course, all reflected in the pond outside the clubhouse. Ventana was also beautiful with a spectacular target shot Par 3 across wild canyon. A great hole typical of Fazio. We got good prices through We also spent half a day driving up Mt. Lemmon and taking a short hike with a picnic. Beautiful rock formations and views. Well worth the trip.

We ate excellent salads at The Eclectic Cafe, close by. We enjoyed two afternoons sunning by the heated pool. Plenty of chaises around, and a hot tub. Pool could have done with a vacuuming, but it didn't spoil our swim. Friendly neighbors at the pool.

We didn't want to leave. Really lovely time. Home was as described. Would return in a heartbeat. Totally recommend to others.

Perfect Patio House

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased when we arrived at the Patio House. The Owners Representative was there to meet us and show us around and as soon as he left I found myself taking photos, inside and out. The house was very clean, and listed accurately, nicely furnished. Comfortable sofa for TV watching. Fully equipped kitchen. I didn't cook the entire week we were there, but had breakfast and tea/coffee, wine etc. There certainly looked like there was all the pots and pans one would need. We walked around the housing estate the first evening, and during the week we were able to enjoy the heated pool. Plenty of comfortable chaises at the pool. The pool could have done with a vacuum, some sand on the floor, but otherwise perfect. Small shaded room with books to exchange. Also hot tub.

We played golf at Randolf North; Arizona National and Ventana Canyon Mountain Course. Got good rates thru

Specially enjoyed all the rabbits, roadrunners and even a bobcat on the Arizona National Course and got wonderful sunset photo when finishing our round across the pond by the clubhouse. Ate appetizers there and drinks. Good. Also had lunch at Ventana, very good also. Had lovely salad lunches at Eclectic Cafe, closeby. We also spent half a day taking a picnic up Mt. Lemmon, and doing a short hike. Well worth the time. I was almost sad to leave. Will try and get back again. Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Katherine, We are so glad you enjoyed - no, thoroughly enjoyed your Tucson stay! I can't believe how much golf and touring you got in during your stay! We thank you for everything - especially the link to! If you have some photos you'd like to share, please email them, and I might put them up on the site - ours are a bit outdated! ;-)

Fabulous vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and never felt like we wanted to leave. We had friends come for a few days and they felt the same. This home doesnt feel like a rental, it feels like home. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen amazingly well stocked. We lacked for nothing. Ere was a family of quail that visited. We had a pair of small lizard that were on the patio every day.

Just bring your food and everything else you need will be there.

We will definately be coming back.

Patio House memories!

  • 5 of 5

I found "Patio House" on my second look on VRBO. I was hoping for something close to my father so it would be convenient for all. I was so happy when I found Patio House and even more happy that it ended up being only 2 miles from my dad! The pictures don't do it justice, it simply is wonderful! A great "at-home" feeling the minute you walk in, great homey touches all around and the patio's are the best part, in my opinion! I had coffee every morning outside..just so peaceful. It was me and my 2 children, ages 22 and 19. They were impressed as well, and the pools were great! We headed down there a couple of times...they were a little dirty, but my daughter just grabbed the skimmer and cleaned it quickly! I highly recommend resting your bones at Patio House. Truly an amazing say the least. Thanks to Christine and Paul for having such a great place to call "home...away from home"

Owner's Response: So glad you found us! And that it worked out for your whole family. I will be contacting the HOA about the pool as well! Thank you so much for choosing "Patio House".

Perfect Patio House

Your patio house was perfect for our much too short visit to Tuscon. Your home is wonderfully decorated, clean, and has all the furnishings necessary to make us feel very relaxed and at home. We did find time to enjoy lounging both inside and out and made several trips to the heated pool. The house location is idea for doing all the tourist things no matter which direction you head. Your basket of brochures and menus was a great help. We found a German/Polish restaurant that was wonderful so we added their menu. We would highly recommend your patio house and sure hope to be able to return again someday.

This Patio Town home is located in one of the older, established areas of NE Tucson and is considered one of the most desirable in the city. This neighborhood, lined with lots of shady trees and palms is close to TANQUE VERDE Wash and only 4 miles from the entrance to SABINO CANYON, a popular hiking and picnicking destination. Not too far is the road to the summit of MT. LEMMON; and within a short driving distance are hiking trails throughout SAGUARO NAT'L MON. About 45 mins west is the wonderful and ever-changing ARIZONA-SONORA DESERT MUSEUM, & the movie town of OLD TUCSON- lots of fun for kids of all ages! An hour away to the SE is the newly-discovered & fascinating KARTCHNER CAVERNS, and if you want to travel further, you can visit TOMBSTONE - home of the infamous OK CORRAL! The town of TUBAC, known for its artisans and craftsmen is only a little over 1 hr south, toward NOGALES, MEX. All these make great day trips! DOWNTOWN theatres & art galleries are only 20 mins away!
