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