We built this house in 2008 just prior to our son Aiden being born. We have since relocated to northern Arizona for Kara's work (medical field), while I still work for the government as an aviator. We love the Elwood (yup, we named our home) and visit regularly - thus the warm feeling you get when you are staying here. This is simply not a 'Hotel House' but a place we visit regularly and still call home. We really have grown fond of this area, the people, and enjoy spending time at the Elwood whenever possible. When we moved to northern Arizona we didn't want to sell our home because we would love to retire here. Instead, we felt it best to rent the property to good people who appreciate a home with nice things, and looking for a relaxing getaway. We feel there are people just like us who want to stay at a beautiful home with personality, and not a home with the personality of a Holiday Inn. We sincerely hope we have succeeded in this endeavor, and look forward to you staying here, discovering how wonderful and warm this house is, and hopefully making this your Arizona getaway home of choice!

Mike & Kara Larson purchased this house in 2008

While we live in northern Arizona, we still regularly visit our home and ensure it remains a place with a warm decor & welcoming vibe which lends the comfort of being 'home' upon arriving. We have used VBRO and HomeAway in our travels and too often the homes are nice but lack personality and that welcoming. Instead these homes felt more like an over-sized hotel room. With those experiences in mind, we have hopefully succeeded in making the Elwood feel welcoming, comfortable, and like a home away from home during your stay. We take great pride in our home, and we want to ensure your stay with us is one where you will want to return again.

This property has everything. It is a beautifully furnished home in a gated community within Rancho Sahuarita, the 10th ranked master community in the country. The Elwood has keyless entry, enclosed garage parking, premium satellite cable/media (Directv, NFL Sunday Ticket, Netflix, Digital Media Drive with over 500 movies & television shows), hot tub, outdoor front/back professionally landscaped patios with fireplaces, custom barbecue, exterior automatic lighting, private den, loft, WiFi, and a kitchen with all the food prep items you need. Landscaper and weekly hot tub maintenance included in rate as well. Best of all this house is just outside of Tucson (20 minutes) and away from the traffic congestion of the city. It is centrally located near the I-19 for easy access in all directions versus the hampered Tucson road system.

Wonderful Home and Owners

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the Elwood house for spring break this year (my family of 4 and the in-laws). The home was large enough to easily accommodate all of us staying in the home plus our visitors (my parents) who live in the same neighborhood - we had dinner with 9 of us a couple of nights. The home is very nicely furnished, was very clean, and has all the amenities of home - my mother-in-law remarked how "beautiful" the home was. You can even park your vehicle in the garage out of the hot sun....

Mike (the owner) was also very hospitable, alerted us to activities in the area, and was attentive to any questions we had before and during our stay.

When visiting the Tucson area, we will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

We had a great time at the Elwood House. It is a very comfortable home, well equiped for our stay. Enjoyed the hot tub. Very nice gated area. Grocery store very convienent to the house. We did a lot of sight seeing from the house. Including a trip up to the Grand Canyon with an overnight stay in Flagstaff. Our nephew and his wife drove over from Borrego Springs CA for a couple of days and were also impressed with our digs! House was as good as the photos and listing information. Owner was always available to answer any and all questions. Thanks Mike and Kara (and Jerry the caretaker).

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
The Elwood was truly a "home away from home." The fully stocked kitchen offered all the necessary conveniences one could need. The living room, den, bedrooms, and upstairs area featured state of the art entertainment capabilities on large, clear, flat screen T.V.s. The house was clean and tastefully furnished, with comfortable furniture and beds. The backyard had a great play area for our two year old grandson. We would definitely recommend the Elwood as a great family get-away! While there was plenty of common space to congregate, there were also ample areas where one could enjoy in private. The owner was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Our deposit was also refunded promptly.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in many VRBO homes over the past several years, this is the nicest by a long shot. The owners have a keen eye for every little detail. It is very hard to put into words how cool, relaxing, entertaining and nice this home is to spend our vacation. We will definitely be back in the future.
