Owners, Russ and Vicki Butler welcome you to 'Desert Dream'.

Your vacation starts with a very well appointed, fully furnished home. We have taken the time to provide you the things that make a house a home. Luxurious beds and linens, cable TVs, wireless Internet, house phone, washer, dryer, and a well equipped kitchen await you. As you move to the outside, the beautiful panoramic view of the Catalina Mountains serve as a backdrop for your private, pebble tec, saltwater pool & spa, outdoor dining, BBQ grill, covered patio, and elevated sun deck. Inside or out - life is but a dream.

Managers, Todd and Stacey Wolff, live nearby to answer any questions you may have. Things to do, dining, outdoor activities, golf, tourist attractions - give us a call. We are here to help. New pool and spa, remodeled interior, and all the comforts of home.

Welcome to 'Desert Dream': Vicki -

As the owner of this home, I wanted to create a haven for myself and my family. Coming from Alaska, I find that Tucson not only warms my body, but my heart and soul. I come to rejuvenate, relax, and shed the burdens of daily life; and, let the calmness of the desert embrace me. It truly is my Desert Dream.

Todd & Stacey -

We want your visit to Desert Dream to be a memorable vacation for you and your family. Enjoy all that Tucson and its surrounding attractions have to offer. The home is well appointed and should have everything you need for a very enjoyable visit. As always, simply call if you need suggestions for things to do, restaurants, or places to see.

Things to Do: Enjoy hiking and biking the numerous mountain and city trails, or experience world class golf at one of the numerous golf clubs sprinkled throughout Tucson. Maybe you'd like to watch the desert bloom in the Spring! Or see the Arizona Diamondbacks during their Major League Spring Baseball Training. Come on down for the famous Tucson Gem & Mineral show, or visit the local wildlife and gardens at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (my personal favorite!). Need more ideas: Tombstone, The Copper Creek Mine, Reid Park Zoo, Aircraft Boneyard, Biosphere II, and the beautiful 1700 Spanish Mission: San Xavier del Bac. Want to cool off? See Tucson underground via Kartchner Caverns State Park or Colossal Cave Mountain Park. Or just stay home and plunge into the salt water pool, or enjoy a relaxing massage from the spa. Afterall, it is your 'Desert Dream.'

Where to eat.: Ahhhh...where to eat? How do I begin? Do you head down to the University area and taste all of the sandwich shops and exotic fare? Or go downtown for Cafe Poco Cosa - imaginative Mexican cuisine? Or hit the nearby Thunder Canyon Brewery or World Sports Grill? The J Bar Lounge or La Pasada for happy hour with a view. Hit La Encantada Mall for Ra (sushi), NoRTH (modern Italian cuisine), Blancos (tacos & tequila), Blue Fin (seafood) and you can always pop into AJ's (excellent fine foods grocer). For the best pancakes in town, you've got to drive down to BoBo's - the all American greasy spoon. Try Frank's for breakfast with an attitude. Viavace is always a top dining choice. Number #1 choice for the ladies - choose from Sauce or Wildflower. And don't forget your own backyard. Fire up the BBQ and have some steaks on the grill.

A gem in desert

  • 5 of 5
Amazing views, with a sunset depicting a whole palette of colors over the Santa Catalina mountains; a clean, well maintained, fully stocked house ready to welcome you; a safe and quiet neighborhood, completely immune to traffic noise and the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close to a vaste range of shopping and dining options. And let's not forget the unique commitment of the managers, Todd and Stacey, always happy to go the extra mile to accommodate the guests. Highly recommended for a restful vacation.

Desert dreaming

  • 5 of 5
We've rented many vacation homes in the US over a long period of time, and this was definitely one of the very best. The home is in a beautiful setting, the desert just beyond the back fence allowed us to spent countless hours watching wildlife (round-tailed squirrels, quails, hummingbirds, rabbits), the peacefulness let us just listen to the breeze. The pool was delightful (we paid for it to be heated, I'd recommend that) and we were in it every single day.

The property was very clean and well-maintained and oh, the internet worked first time and was fast and reliable! That meant a whole lot to us, as my mum was seriously ill while we were away, and it enabled us to be in constant touch with things at home.

It was a pleasure to deal with Vicki, the owner, she responded to our queries very quickly. Todd manages the property locally, and was very helpful before our stay, again quickly answering any questions we had and letting us know that he was available during our stay for help or advice. We didn't need to contact him!

Would definitely recommend the property and area. Thanks Vicki and Todd!

A comfortable and wonderful home!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family so enjoyed this comfortable home during our stay in Tucson for our granddaughter's gymnastic competition at AU. The weather was very cool, but sunny and bright. Family members flew in from WA, CA, and NM. We would recommend this Desert Dream vacation home.

Desert Dream is just that

We loved everything about Desert Dream. The location is right where you want to be in Tucson - close to great restaurants, shopping and golf - and the views are terrific. We are already making plans to come again next year.

Just as Described

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, along with another couple, found everything as advertised. We appreciated the clear communication with the owner who promised and delivered all that we expected.

Desert Dream was very clean and spacious. We appreciated being able to sit by the pool and hot tub each morning and later in the day (following our day trips). The hot tub was very relaxing.

We were also fortunate to see a mountain lion stroll along the desert wash behind the backyard fence. It is something you rarely get a chance to experience.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Desert Dream was the perfect place for our family to gather. The home was beautiful and the views from the backyard were breathtaking both day and night. We enjoyed the pool and the deck as well as the spacious living area and recreation room with pool table. The beds were very comfy and we had everything that we needed. Vicki, the owner, and Todd, the manager, were incredibly kind and hospitable. Todd helped us make sure that we were well-equipped for our stay and had information about the area. He even helped us find a portable crib for our baby. We hope to be able to come again. Thank you Vicki for sharing your lovely home.

Our home is your home. Very relaxing, very accommodating. Desert Dream puts you at ease the minute you walk in the door. You will spend as much time outdoors as you do indoors.

Stop by our two grocery stores (Albertson's is within a mile, Safeway is only 2.3 miles away) and you are set. Or take advantage of our variety of nearby restaurants.
