Pictures do not do it justice

We were met by caretaker upon our arrival and she showed us around and explained how to use audio, spa and etc. She was available for any questions during our stay--but we did not have many. The check in process was a lot better than most places we rented in the past. The audio, wireless and spa all worked well without a hitch.
The house was bigger in person and all the pictures and furnishings were very nice and comfortable. The Master bedroom and bath were large and very pleasant. The landscaping and views out the back patio were very nice. The lighting in the evening was a plus.
We really liked the area--very pleasant and upscale, although we would have liked to be closer to downtown Tucson because we attended many activities and have friends living in that area. We walked on the paths which are everywhere and really enjoyed our daily outings.
The owner was very accommodating and the rental process was easy. He even allowed us to bring our cat which made us happy!!

Better than advertised

There were features of this house we liked better than expected. One is while it backs onto a wild area (wash) there is a nice fence with a locked gate you can see through. This gave a measure of security with the nice view of the wild area. We were treated to a bobcat on the other side of the fence, able to see without fear. While the pool was not an option we chose to take advantage of in the cooler winter time, we enjoyed the hot tub use that comes with the rental immensely. It is nice, no chemical smells. Amber, the property manager, assisted when the pool had a glitch being responsive. The house is clean, well kept, and decorated nicely. Now for the master bed: better than expected. I have back issues and usually have to prepare to take Aleve just to sleep in a strange bed. Not an issue here, the bed was just right. Neighborhood is upscale, pleasant and one of the only ones we saw in Tucson with sidewalks. Garden is landscaped well. Just a nice residential neighborhood with a nice secure feeling. Recommend to mature travelers seeking quiet, peace and security. No nightlife to speak of in Marana. Buy groceries and use this as your base to explore the area. And don't miss Kartchner Caverns about 1 hour away, well worth the drive.

WONDERFUL WEDDING HOUSE

First time with a VRBO. Will definitely look for this type of accommodations in the future. Wedding guests stayed in a hotel, my immediate family (3 small grandchildren from out of state) were all together in this house. Wonderful times shared.

Very nice property in beautiful location

This is a lovely home in a newer housing development near the Dove Mountain golf course. The home is large with three bedrooms, a big living room, a nice spacious kitchen and eating area. The master bedroom is huge with a very large ensuite bathroom. It has all the amenities you would expect and is very well maintained. We enjoyed our stay - the views of the desert vegetation and the mountains from the backyard are wonderful. The backyard has a gate which leads directly to trails to explore the mountain. We didn't get a chance to do very much exploring but would definitely do some hiking if we were to come back! Amber, the property manager is helpful and pleasant. The only downside when visiting in the fall or winter is that the pool is not heated and the cool weather at night makes the water too cold for swimming (it was 67 degrees). You can pay extra to heat the pool but the cost is prohibitive. So it's a bit of a tease to see the lovely pool every morning and not be able to use it. We did use the jacuzzi however which at night is spectacular with the stars overhead and the sounds of the desert behind you. The area around the pool is also lovely for eating outside or sitting in the sun during the day. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay here again if we return to Marana.
Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that Arizona has some of the highest gas prices which makes it cost prohibitive to heat the pool. We make heating the pool an option, however, so that future renters have reasonable rental rates.

Amber and I strive to provide great memories.

Wonderful house, wonderful view.

The house was in excellent condition. The kitchen and bathrooms had many necessities already there for our use. The property was very clean and furnished with beautiful and comfortable furniture and accessories. We loved all the artwork. Amber checked on us and came by to help us understand how to adjust the temperature in the hot tub. We very much enjoyed the outside area. We had our family come for a cookout one evening and enjoy our home away from home. We really liked the wash area behind the house with the natural beauty of the west. We had a bobcat come by one afternoon and take a nap under a tree just outside the fenced in area. Three big-screen TV's were great. We found a great grocery just up the road on Tangerine. Went there about three times. It was a great store. Also a Walgreens was nearby for items we forgot. We also found a mall further up Tangerine in Oro Valley where we did some shopping. Very convenient area but out from big city feeling. We would definitely stay there again, and would recommend it to others.
Owner's Response: Happy vacation renters make Happy Owners.
