About Donna Kalinske

I was raised in Tucson, but following college I left for NYC and LA, returning here in 2005 to care for my mother. It was then that I rediscovered my love for the Sonoran Desert and for Tucson. Having studied design at UCLA and having worked in design for many years I thoroughly enjoyed both renovating and furnishing the home in Viewpoint II. I live in the same community and a day does not go by that I am not grateful for having discovered this beautiful spot.

Donna Kalinske purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Donna Kalinske chose Tucson

I want you to fall in love with the the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains and to have a quintessential desert experience.

I chose this home the moment I saw it and take great pleasure in sharing it and its breathtaking views with others.

What makes this townhome unique

The home has spectacular views. It is calming and restful and surrounded by nature. It is a haven and a retreat yet within minutes of shops, restaurants and galleries and only 20 minutes to the University of Arizona, a Tucson jewel not to be missed. It is also only 2.6 miles to Sabino Canyon, a spectacular desert oasis for walking and hiking.

Pure Tranquility with Perfect Views

  • 5 of 5
What can I add to the reviews already written? Donna was a charming host and from the booking process to our arrival was helpful and easy going. The amenities she provides are over and above what other home owners do, we rent across the world and have never had so much provided for guests. The house is beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfortable after some we had used on this trip. We spent many hours in the garden watching the birds, quails and squirrels squabbling over the food and the hummingbird was a regular visitor to the water feature for his drink. The garden area is beautifully laid out with several different areas to sit, eat and relax, complete bliss. On top of all this the house is close to several shopping and dining area's making everything very accessible. It was very hard to drag ourselves away after 10 days, I could easily have stayed on for another 10 if not more it is so tranquil. Thank you Donna for allowing us the use of your lovely home, I will definitely be recommending you to friends.

Idyllic spot, every comfort

  • 5 of 5
This house in the Catalina foothills is perfectly situated in a quiet cul-de-sac. The huge rear patio with 3-4 different seating areas is graced with a bird feeder (quail, doves) and a water feature, both of which add to the tranquility. The well-landscaped front patio is a more intimate spot where you can catch some sun with a glass of wine, or just rest your eyes on from the kitchen. Other notable comforts, in addition to the ones well-documented in the listing description and other reviews, include a large walk-in closet in the master bedroom, lots of lamps and lighting on dimmers, skylights in the bathrooms and kitchen, a large variety of well-chosen appliances and accessories--clean, in good repair, and organized, and thoughtful touches, like kleenex in every room. There is a great set of books, brochures, listings and notes about things to do, places to go, etc. We walked/hiked almost every day of our 2-week stay, the majority of times in Sabino Canyon, but also Saguaro NP East (Rincon), Catalina State Park, and the Pima Canyon trail. We discovered the attractive U of Arizona campus and its many excellent museums, notably the Arizona State Museum. A trip north to the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument was worth it. (On other trips we have gone to the night sky program at Kitt Peak, which is really worth it.) Since the house and its kitchen were so comfortable, we ate in most nights, doing a combo of simple cooking and takeout, which the wonderful new Whole Foods (not to mention Trader Joe) makes easy. A short walk (down busy Swan Rd) to Bruegger's Bagel is a nice alternative for breakfast. As others have said, Donna was always available by email or phone if we had any questions. We already have plans to return to her lovely townhouse.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
We make frequent trips to Tucson, finding great places to stay through Home Away. Donna's wonderful property is definitely one of the best. Donna met us and showed us around, clearly having thought of everything to make our stay perfect. We were fascinated by the renovations she had done to create this amazing space. The unit is actually not very large but gives the feeling of spaciousness and yet the bedrooms feel very private. Donna is an interior designer and it shows in the care she has put into decorating. Her choices are excellent and are only outdone by the spectacular view. Waking up every morning to the ever-changing light on the mountains was a wonderful way to start the day. We would take our coffee on the lovely patio which is even nicer than in the photos. Most mornings we would take a walk around the complex - at the end of the street is a bench with a very nice view - or explore one of the washes. We would have to tear ourselves away to take care of business. Most days we would take the short walk to the pool and always had it to ourselves. The location is very convenient to many groceries - There is a new Whole Foods on Craycroft and River that sells beer and wine - and restaurants and shops. The hiking in the Catalinas is excellent: we recommend Sabino Canyon and Pima Canyon. A place this good is bound to be popular once word gets out, but we hope to be able to return soon.

Beautiful Place and View

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every minute in her home. It's beautifully decorated and furnished. Donna was very helpful with everything. We were quite pleased how quiet her home is. We enjoyed the Air and Space Museum, Desert Museum, Reid Park Zoo and the shopping. We will be back, hopefully someday soon. Schaefer Family, Washington State

such a lovely property

  • 5 of 5
The reality of staying here exceeded our expectations.The mountains were even closer than in the photographs and were an amazing backdrop to our visit making it gorgeous to relax in the garden. We loved the bobcat who visited and Donna had provided a bird feeder and we really enjoyed watching them at the waterfall too.
We spent our time in Tucson hiking and visiting eg. San Xavier and mariachi mass.
The house layout was perfect for us and the large patio doors and windows meant you could always enjoy the view. Donna had carefully considered the decor which related well to the location and this contributed to our happy stay. There was lovely artwork throughout and plenty of dvds and books to access.
Donna gave us a friendly welcome and was unobtrusively available whenever we wanted to ask her anything.
We would certainly recommend this property to anyone.
