About Karen Graham

I am a native Tucsonian. Have always loved its rich historical heritage of the rugged west flavored with indian and Spanish influence.

Why Karen Graham chose Oro Valley

Perfect view of Catalina Mountains. Neighborhood has that rural quiet & relaxed feeling with city conveniences minutes away. Additional savings for persons interested in long term rental (grater that 21 days). My prices are very competitive and my home exceptionally roomy and clean.

What makes this house unique

Caretaker/manager lives close to make sure your stay is worry free. Central to many attractions and close access to main streets and interstate.

Welcoming and Comfortable for ALL!

  • 5 of 5

We found Karen's home home to be exactly what we needed for our multi-generational family vacation. The location, layout, mountain view and pool made for a great week. This home is very clean and well-supplied with absolutely everything imaginable for a convenient stay. Our 9 month old grandson found lots of wonderful books and toys to play with and Karen was thoughtful enough to even supply a highchair for him. We fed the birds every day and felt like we were staying at a dear friend's home rather than a stranger's rental property! Karen obviously loves her home and enjoys sharing it with others. She was great to communicate with and made sure we knew how to contact her with any questions. The weather was lovely and we had great hiking in the Catalina Mountains and Sabino Canyon. One evening, we hosted a dinner and invited other family members who live in Oro Valley. Karen's home, patio and back yard with Chiminia were perfect for entertaining a group comfortably. We had 3 generations of family staying together for the week and this home was the perfect fit for us.

Very Relaxing Family Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a very relaxing family vacation in the Tucson area. Our party consisted of my wife and I plus our 21+ year old kids.

The property is older but spotless and everything is in perfect working order. Karen has provided every thing you need for a great relaxing family vacation, swimming pool, rec room with table tennis and pool table, nice barbeque, loads of board games and large library of classic movies on VHS. (Had to remind ourselves how to use those but got the hang of it very quickly)

We used it as a base to go see the sights and places of interest around Tucson by day and had a really comfortable home to come back to in the evening for a family meal on the covered deck watching.

Excellent value for money, Karen is a fabulous host and I throughly recommend this property. When we return to see the things we did not have time to do this trip we will be try to book this property again.

Fabulous Oro Valley

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Karen’s house in Oro Valley, AZ was from February – April 2014. We found it to be clean, well-stocked with toys for the kids, books and board games for the family, two living rooms, new flat screen TV, and a covered patio with seating for 8 and entertaining. We especially liked the recreation room, the huge backyard and swimming pool. We found everything we needed to live long term and soon found whatever was missing was soon supplied to us with a smile. Karen is very attentive and lives nearby so you don’t feel lost when you need to ask questions about this area or just to chat. The yard and trees are well maintained including hummingbirds to watch at the feeder. It is a short drive to 3 different shopping areas and the entire local area which is upscale, seemed very safe and peaceful. The occasional sound of horses neighing at the stables nearby was pleasant. We took many walks in the neighborhood taking in the variety of cactus and flowers, small rabbits, quail, doves, and other interesting small animals of the desert. Best of the entire home was comfortable and cool inside when it was hot outside.

Fantastic and Convenient Tucson Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for members of my birding group and me for a birding trip to Tucson. The house was very well-equipped and extremely comfortable. It is located a few blocks from Oracle, a major N/S arterial, so it was convenient for getting around Tucson. The house was very well-equipped. I hosted a dinner for 10 birders, and there was plenty of room both inside and out. The beds were comfortable. The area was quiet, and the house was spotless! Karen, the owner, was welcoming and helpful. The master suite was very nice. The fenced area was very large. Although we did not have children with us, there were many things in the house to amuse children. I would happily stay here again.

Owner's Response: Linda, thank-you for your kind review! I would welcome you and the birding group back anytime. May and June are great months for birders to watch the migration of birds from Mexico back to their homes up north and to Canada. Hope to see you all again. Best wishes. K.

Spacious and Comforting Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Karen provides a truly quiet, comfortable and large home in which to relax! The listing is accurate as are the photos. It was really great to be able to walk into a spotlessly clean home after traveling a long distance. The kitchen had plenty of appliances and utensils to able to prepare home cooked meals for my family. And did I mention the house and property are large? We were able to enjoy time visiting with family from Tucson, while the kids played. I would certainly recommend this property to others. We hope to be able to rent it again this coming spring. Lastly, it was really great to work with Karen. I have had other experiences here on VRBO where other owners or property managers were not as accurate as what one would hope. Karen was (is) as good as her word! Thank you again.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Karen was fantastic to work with. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very spacious and comfortable. Also, after a long trip there is nothing quite like walking into a house for the first time and having it really clean and organized. It has a well stocked kitchen and did I say, lots of space. We adults could enjoy a conversation while the kids played and neither interrupted the other!

Again, great house - hope we find it available next time we visit Tucson! Thank you again Karen.
