RELAX: Private Room on Ranchita. The main house is surrounded by beautiful patios, waterfall, pond, and fountain. The hot tub is fully enclosed in a gazebo that opens onto the patios. The room is upstairs, with a private balcony overlooking the patios and surrounding three acres of natural desert. To the east are the majestic Catalina Mountains and to the North the Totolita Mountains. There is no better view of the sunset from any other spot in the whole of Tucson or better place to barbecue than on the patio. The Ranchita feels like you are out in the wide open desert, but you are in town and just minutes from shopping and fine dining. COME ENJOY YOUR STAY.
GOLF AND HIKING: Tucson is known for its great weather, which accommodates every outdoor activity imaginable. FOR THE GOLFER: Golf on one of the many public or private golf courses, such as Arthur Pack Golf Courts, which is less than 10 minutes away. Tucson is home to the World Golf Accenture Match Play, which is held at Dove Mountain in February and is only 15 minutes away from the Ranchita. FOR THE HIKER: Tucson has an incredible county, state, and national parks hiking trail system, which can be reviewed on the web pages for PIma County, Arizona State Parks, and the National Parks. Call for webpages and other information.

I rented the property for two nights (for a valentine's day weekend getaway). I decided to go a different route than the traditional hotel. First of, the location of the property was ideal. It wasn't in the city, you could look over the balcony and see the mountains and get fresh air. Getting to downtown was about a 20 minute drive and to Mount Lemmon it was 90 minutes. The location allowed for a very romantic weekend. Additionally, the property itself is breathtaking. Everything that you would need in a room is provided...microwave, dvd/tv, wine glasses, plates/utensils, etc. The room was the perfect size. It was on the second floor, behind the main house and had a great bedroom and bathroom. The hot tub was the perfect temperature and we honestly felt secluded from the all hustle and bustle of the city. And lastly, Greer (property owner) is one of the friendliest people you will meet. Though she lives in the house, you will only see her if you try to find her. She does a great job of welcoming you and then making you feel like the place is yours. A perfect property for the perfect romantic getaway.
Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway
Owners response: Thank you Moe for the great review. I try very hard to welcome my guests, but not be intrusive so they feel like the place is theirs. It is a balancing act and good to know that for you, I struck the perfect balance. Thank you. Greer
NW Tucson on the border of Oro Valley and Marana. In town - so shopping malls, theaters, other entertainment, and fine dining are minutes away. Easy access to freeway: 20 minutes to downtown (gem and mineral show) and University of Arizona; minutes from shopping, golf courses (public and private), fine dining and entertainment; 30 minutes to Tucson International Airport and 1.5 hours to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport; 1 or 2 hrs by freeway to surrounding rural communities of Rio Rico, Green Valley, Benson, Sonoita, Tombstone, Bisbee, Douglas, and Nogales, Arizona, and Mexico. Great hiking and horse venues nearby at Catalina State Park and Saguaro National Monument. Horse accommodations available on the Ranchita.
