RANCHITA: PRIVATE ROOM WITH BALCONY, HOT TUB, TICKETS TO TOHONO CHUL PARK

Tucson Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, with kitchen amenities, Large bath & walkin closet, Sleeps 2

Private Room in Ranchita. QUIET DESERT OASIS. Secluded, very private on three acres, fenced and gated, surrounded by mature desert trees and majestic saguaros. Private room in main house, with walk-in closet, double bed, bath and kitchenette. Front door parking, with private entrance and balcony. COME RELAX IN HOT TUB just outside the door, fully enclosed in gazebo that opens onto patio with waterfall and pond. The VIEW FROM THE BALCONY IS SPECTACULAR. Spacious patios, fire pit, exceptional barbecue area and fountains. YOU WILL LOVE IT.

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.

HORSE ACCOMMODATIONS: Triangle 5 Ranchita has horse accommodations and access to many riding venues. Arrangements can be made for you and your horse.

Guestbook comments from the owner
An amazing weekend getaway

thecampuslegend (tempe, az)

Review submitted: February 14, 2011 Date of arrival: February 11, 2011



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

The room is clean, well appointed and conveniently located. The properity owner is friendly and helpful with questions about the area. Next year, when I return to Tucson, the Ranchita will be my destination, not a hotel.

Great place to relax after the gem show

  • 4 of 5
My girlfriend and I booked the room last minute and were pleased when we arrived at the location. Greer, the owner of the property was very nice and personable. The property was really lovely and a nice change from the scenery in downtown Tucson. Quiet, lovely cactus gardens, nice clean room and bathroom. Great find for a great price during the crazy Tucson gem show.

Nice

The room was as advertised: clean. bright and well decorated. The location is convenient to just about everything. A stay here is much more enjoyable than any hotel I have visited, thanks to the owner's hospitality.

Everything You Need is Here

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience staying at this property The room, which was very clean, had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The bathroom was nice but only had a shower for those who care about that sort of thing (didn't matter to us). The owner couldn't be nicer and her dog, Gemini, was so sweet. Especially enjoyed the private balcony which was great for watching sunsets, bird watching, star gazing and just lounging around (morning coffee/evening glass of wine/reading). Also liked the hot tub which was very clean and well maintained. The property has a large brick patio with several BBQ grills and a fire pit for evening campfires. It was private and comfortable so in a way, it felt like home to my wife and me. When we go back, we'll be staying here. You can't go wrong with this choice!

Ranchita review

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the "Ranchita". Our room was comfortable, clean & well-maintained. The owner was welcoming and provided little extras such as coffee, tea, raisin bread, reading material & DVDs. The property is spacious & nicely landscaped with a large hottub in a gazebo outside which we enjoyed. Had the weather been warmer, we would have enjoyed the balcony outside our room.

A car is certainly necessary to enjoy Tucson & surrounding area (we found everything very spread out) since the property is to the north west of the city. We would recommend the "Ranchita" for up to a week's stay. We enjoyed hiking in the State & National Parks & visits to the historical town centre & museums, San Xavier du Bac Mission, Sonora Desert Museum, Amerind Foundation & Tombstone.

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.
