Marana Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
A Golf “Cottage” with Two Luxury Master Suites for Two Couples And Room to Spare!
Poised above the championship Gallery Golf Course, with sweeping views of Tucson and Marana city lights, is an elegant “Cottage” with two Grand-Master bedroom suites and a separate 400+ sq. ft. Guest Casita with a full bath & walk-in closet.
Each of the two spacious, Grand-Master bedroom suites is a private retreat with a King bed, a seating area, a TV/entertainment console, and a personal computer work-station. Both suites are complemented with a luxurious travertine-tiled, spa bathroom that features his & hers walk-in closets, two sinks, a large soaking tub and a spacious shower.
A separate 400+ sq. ft. casita is located in the entry courtyard just steps away from the front door and is a welcoming guest suite outfitted with a queen bed, a full bathroom and a spacious closet.
With more than 2800 sq. ft. of interior living space and three separate outdoor patios, this cottage offers plenty of room for enjoying the dry, mild winter climate that Southern Arizona is famous for. And if cooler weather comes, high ceilings and large windows let the sun shine in on the rich-hued, Italian porcelain flooring throughout the house while two stone fireplaces, one inside and one outside, provide both warmth and ambience. There’s something for everyone -- books, movies, music, games, puzzles, and of course all your favorite TV channels on a 50” Sony HD TV.
If gourmet cooking and entertaining are on the menu, then the large, dine-in kitchen with all GE Monogram appliances is the place to start. The extra-large 48” refrigerator, gas stove, electric oven, microwave and warming drawer are what every home-chef needs. You'll want for nothing in this fully-equipped kitchen and pantry: pots & pans, a blender & food processor, a toaster, a coffee maker, a griddle/panini maker, a crockpot, cookware & bakeware, chef's knives and utensils, basic cooking ingredients and plenty of dishes, glasses, serving bowls & platters are all are within easy reach. Add to that a high-output, gas Bar-B-Q grill on the covered patio and you’ll have all the ingredients for first-class dining and entertaining!
And, when you want someone else to do the cooking, then Dove Mountain is just the place to be. The Gallery Golf Club dining room is just steps away (no need to drive), so you can enjoy a cocktail or two while the chef prepares his simple, elegant signature dishes for you -- No Worries! Just a short distance away are many more dining and entertaining options, including the elegant, new Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain with three, fine restaurants, a PGA-Championship golf course, luxury spa and pool.
Plan to fill your days with lots of fun activities, for at Dove Mountain you’re only minutes away from them all: world-class golf courses, tennis courts, hiking & biking trails, swimming pools, exercise & yoga classes, elegant spa treatments, movie theaters, restaurants, and shopping centers and more are convenient and plentiful. And of course, Tucson and the surrounding communities have many wonderful art, science, and natural museums, art galleries, botanical gardens and desert parks that will enrich your stay in Southern Arizona.

About The Owner
My husband and I are both pilots, so we love the endless blue skies and wide open spaces of Arizona. Flying around Arizona, we have discovered how diverse this state is -- the vertical drama and breath-taking beauty of the Grand Canyon and Sedona gives way to wondrous snow-capped mountains and pine-scented air near Flagstaff and Show Low; Phoenix and Scottsdale are modern, world-class cities, while Bisbee, Tombstone and other towns in southeastern Arizona remind us of a more rustic time when settlers made their way here to raise cattle and farm the land.
Before we moved to Tucson in 2006, we lived in several beautiful, resort communities in California. We were drawn to Tucson for its year-round weather . . . we have fallen in love with Tucson, because we have found a community in which we can pursue our life’s passions and discover new ones. My husband has enjoyed learning about the stars and the universe and he revels in the dark skies over Tucson which are perfect for astronomy. I, on the other hand, seek the special light that arrives at dawn and dusk each day, and am pursuing a new-found interest in landscape painting and desert photography. Both of us are also enjoying Tucson’s other, too-many-to-count, outdoor pastimes: golfing, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, gardening, and so on. Thanks to the nearness of the University of Arizona, we have found many local experts willing to teach & guide us in all these activities.

Why The Owner chose Marana
The Dove Mountain area is very special because of the natural beauty of the landscape. The Tortolita mountains provide an exquisite rugged, rocky backdrop to the surprisingly green desert flora. We fell in love with the unexpectedly lush beauty of the Sonoran desert landscaping at Dove Mountain; it is such a contrast from the ordinary grassy-green, palm tree-shaded landscaping of most resort areas.
We chose “The Cottages” at the Gallery Golf Club in particular, because of the proximity to the club and golf course. The clubhouse is literally just steps away -- an easy stroll and your there, ready to enjoy a round of golf, an refreshing lunch or afternoon cocktail, or an elegant dinner And now with the Ritz Carlton also just a short distance away, its easy to become spoiled by the variety of golf, dining, hiking, and just plain relaxing possibilities that await each day!
Among the great pleasures of life on Dove Mountain is lounging on the patio -- with a fire to warm your back -- and watching the sunset with a sweeping vista of the near and distant mountains, city lights, and farm lands which goes on for miles. After dark, when evening temperatures are warm, you can turn your gaze skyward and watch the myriad of stars wheeling above you and wonder at the vastness of the universe. The air is so clear in Tucson, that on a crisp, clear winter morning you can see the Kitt Peak observatories, more than sixty miles away!
What makes this cottage unique
Without a doubt, what sold us about this particular cottage is it’s floorplan. We love the twin Grand-Master bedroom suite plan. When guests come to visit, we can offer them a “Suite” that rivals some of the finest hotels in the world! Plus, with the courtyard casita we have extra room for additional guests, and we also use it as an office, a craft/project room, a poker-night game room, and so much more.
We also really enjoy our proximity to both the Gallery Golf Club, the Gallery Sports Club, and the NEW Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain. Whether we’re dining with friends at the Golf Club, taking a yoga class at the Sports Club, or enjoying a casual lunch and the water slide at the Ritz Carlton pool, we are never far from home.
