SECLUDED WITH GREAT MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Tucson House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom + den, 2 bathrooms

Our rental is a very clean (nonsmoking) home. It sits on 1.5 acres that have been cleared, fenced and gated. We have some of the best unobstructed views of the Catalina mountains in Tucson.

Everything is furnished, bed linens, towels and anything you would need in a kitchen. We also have a full size washer and dryer. All the rooms have been tastefully decorated. The rental is split floor plan, the master is on one side with bath. The other two bedrooms and bath are on the opposite side of the home. It is a perfect floor plan.

Located 20 miles north of Tucson, Catalina began in the 1870's as the Rail N Ranch, a working cattle ranch. In 1959, Lloyd W. Golder III purchased the ranch and renamed it the Golder Ranch. In 1949, E. B. Garner and his wife bought 112 acres of the land and a year later began selling parcels which later grew into the town of Catalina, named for the surrounding Catalina Mountains. Today, this quiet hamlet is experiencing mild growth with a steady influx of families and retirees, along with the addition of new strip malls. The Catalina area is largely rural but evolving toward a more suburban setting as new developments move into the area. Local retail trade and services support the large numbers of winter residents attracted to Catalina from November through April.

The 1.5 acres are cleared ( BONUS: Plenty of room to park your RV.)

About Linda

We moved to the Oro Valley, north of Tucson, from Pittsburgh, PA. When it was retirement time we knew we wanted to leave the snow shovels behind. We have been here full time for 10 years. I feel I'm on vacation everyday.

Our current home is only 8 miles from the our rental home.

Linda purchased this house in 2011

Why Linda chose Tucson

The views, location, weather and did I mention the views.

What makes this house unique

The views from this home are spectacular. You can sit on the deck in the afternoon and watch the mountains turn pink. What they say here in Tucson is, when the mountains turn pink it's time for a drink.

During the winter you will have days the mountains have snow.

The sky and stars are beautiful there are no lights to obstruct your star gazing.

Superbly comfortable in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This worked out perfectly for our 2-month stay in Arizona. The house itself was extremely relaxing, comfortable, and well-equipped and we never tired of the view of the Santa Catalina mountains. Most of the time it was just two of us, but we had friends to stay from time to time and the house is very well laid out so that you're not on top of each other and everyone can enjoy their own space.

As we like to hike, one of the big pluses for us was being so close to Catalina State Park. Movie theatres, a range of restaurants, food and other types of shopping were all easily accessible. And whenever we wanted to do something in downtown Tucson, it was no more than a 30 to 40 minute drive. The house was also a good base for exploring other parts of southern Arizona.

Linda and Tom were terrific, going out of their way to help us or to respond promptly to any request. We would absolutely recommend this property to others, and indeed plan to return.

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
It is really great to be able to walk into a Spotless clean home after traveling. The house is very well equipped and has a well stocked kitchen with plenty of appliances and utensils to prepare home cooked meals.
Linda and Tom were very responsive and friendly.
The pictures and description of the property were spot on .
We would certainly recommend this property and are looking forward to staying here again in 2015.

Fabulous Hosts and Home!

  • 5 of 5
Our very first experience using HomeAway was fabulous with our wonderful hosts Linda and Tom and their immaculate and very well furnished rental property. From their hospitality over the phone to our initial inquiry, to the special touches they put in the rental property to make our stay over Christmas that much more special, hosts Linda and Tom helped make our visit to Tucson absolutely splendid. The extra touches such as lights being turned on for our evening arrival, Christmas decorations complete with a tree and nativity set, books and newspapers about local events, and even an address with directions for emergency care when needed, made our family Christmas vacation away from home a wonderful week we will never forget. The view of the mountains at sunrise out the front window was spectacular along with the beautiful pink mountain view as the sun set. We loved the peace and quiet of this secluded setting along with the fact that we had easy access to many sights in the Tucson area. A family favorite was Sabino Canyon which was a short drive allowing us to hike and enjoy the scenery before most people arrived. University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 was only twenty minutes away. All of the activities we wanted to do were within an easy hour drive. When our week was over, everyone was disappointed to leave. We’d highly recommend this rental to any family visiting the Tucson area!

Lovely mountain views!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this home for a month during our travels around the southwest. Upon arrival we were pleased to find the rental be be one of the best appointed and cleanest in our many vacation rental stays. Not only basics were supplied but nice little extras as well. When searching for a rental we typically look for one with an outdoor area with some privacy. This property provided that and the home is cozy but spacious even during the couple of weeks when there were 5 of us there. We spent many hours on the large front deck relaxing and watching the clouds moving over the mountains. Even though the home is in a rural area it is just a few miles from all shopping conveniences, the closest super market only a half a mile away. The nearby little village of Catalina has a great restaurant, Bubb's Grub, which has some of the best BBQ we've experienced. Catalina State Park is about 5 miles from the house. If you like to hike this is a great park close by to get out into the desert. Saguaro National Park east or west and the Desert Museum (must sees) are about an hour away. We would highly recommend this property to those looking for a rural retreat in the Oro Valley, north Tucson area!

It Just Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

It Just Doesn't Get Any Better Than This
  • 5 of 5
There are not enough superlatives to describe this fantastic location. The owners went so far above and beyond to ensure our visit was spectacular, it truly boggles the mind. I cannot imagine staying ANYWHERE else when we come to Tucson. It is that fantastic.

The location is beautiful, quiet, secluded, and everything but food is provided. The owners spared no expense to make this house a pristine, beautiful place to stay. There were six of us (three generations) and we all were thrilled a place like this was even available to rent.

We had never met the owners before we stayed here or had even seen the property before, so this is an unbiased review. We came here expecting a lot, and received more than we could hope for.

Live in the north Tucson area and have a bunch of family coming in? This is the place to put up those special guests. They will love you for it. Just coming to Tucson for a visit? It doesn't get any better than this.

We were truly treated like royalty and Linda's attention to detail and decorating skills will blow you away.

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at your lovely home made our vacation even more enjoyable. You can see the love and care that the owners give this home in every detail. At first we were concerned about the distance of the house to the mall, and other activities, but it is not bad at all, so don't judge because of that! The house had room for everyone, it was beautiful and comfortable, and the owner, Linda, was so accomodating to all our needs, THANK YOU, you are amazing!!! One more thing to confess, when we saw the price, we weren't expecting too much, but we were surprised at the affordability and awesomeness of the place. Thank you very much for keeping your prices reasonable and caring of you home as great as you do. We will definitely stay there again, everyone loved the house!
