Owner purchased this House in 2002
Why Owner chose Vail
This was our first home purchased in AZ. We bought it as a very basic custom Santa Fe. When we purchased it there was nothing but flat desert surrounding it. We installed a pool, spa, flagstone patio in back yard and customized the house with beautiful cedar doors throughout, as well as custom iron security doors a front courtyard and a lot of palm trees to go wit the backyard BBQ and spa. We also upgraded the kitchen and bathrooms a bit and faux painted the interior. We love this house but our family outgrew it. I didnt want to sell or long term rent it, so the vacation rental seemed like the best option. We hope you and your family will enjoy the southwest style of the home and the clean fresh air as well as beautiful star filled nights. My favorite thing to do in the winter months was to take a glass of wine and sit in the jacuzzi and lay back to star gaze.

Jacuzzi, BBQ, quiet peaceful starry desert nights, ease of travel to many activities. Cozy southwest decor.

A perfect family get-a-way.
After a long winter in the northeast and the northwest, our family met up at the Rincon Retreat for some warm sunshine and fun. The house lived up to it's name. It is perfectly situated in a quiet neighborhood (with friendly neighbors) and incredible desert walking trails just behind the house. Our granddaughter loved seeing the cotton-tail and jack rabbits romping along our morning and evening walks and as an added bonus, the desert was just beginning to bloom- gorgeous sights and smells. The house was very clean, well appointed and comfortable. The living space was open and spacious and the outdoor space was amazing. Easy to find sunshine or shade at all times of day. The outdoor fireplace charmed and warmed us at night. The various wind chimes gave a spa-like ambiance as we relaxed in the hot tub. Close to Tucson, the Reid Park Zoo and the Butterfly exhibit at the Botanical Gardens are not to be missed.
Thanks Karen! We are so happy you found the Retreat to your liking! You guys were wonderful guests and the house was left exactly as you found it....even better as apparently your husband fixed a minor leak at one of the master bath sinks! You folks are always welcome here and would be fantastic guests for anyone you choose to rent with! Thanks again!
we had a great week. wish the weather was warmer for pool use but the hot tube under the stars was sooo nice.
Great having you Gerry! Thanks for being a great client!
Rincon Resort did not disappoint.
We loved our time at this beautiful home in Vail. It was roomy, but cozy and immaculate and tastefully decorated. The welcome card and bottle of wine were an unexpected treat. Although the snow kept us out of the pool and hot tub, there was a lot to do in the area that kept us busy. This is a property we would return to with no hesitation.
It was great having faye and pam at our "Retreat". I am very happy they found it enjoyable and would always be happy to rent to them, wonderful guests!
Good choice for longer term stay.
Quite, private, spacious and comfortable, Sean’s house was a great base of operation for our month of business and R&R in the Tucson area. Easy access to the interstate made downtown closer than expected, and the hot tub and fireplace added comforts much appreciated! We were very satisfied with our recent stay!
Thanks Doug! You and your wife were wonderful guests and my only regret is I did not get to meet you in person. It was a pleasure having you stay at the Retreat!
A beautiful house in a quiet but conveniently located neighborhood
We are a family of four and wanted to have a clean and spacious house to spend Christmas break in while we enjoyed southern Arizona. This house is well cared for and has many modern conveniences (Sonos whole-house music system, satellite service with big-screen TVs in living room and master bedroom, wifi, Jacuzzi tub next to swimming pool, etc) that made our stay very pleasant. It was convenient after a long day to have Safeway, Starbucks, and a couple restaurants close by. The homeowner was great to work with and answered all of our questions very promptly. The beds were very comfortable and we were able to get better rest than when we are at home. Overall, I would recommend this property for families who like privacy in a beautiful, secure neighborhood.
Thanks Joel, it was a pleasure having you and your family!
Wonderfully comfortable home in East Tucson
I was traveling with my siblings and their spouses to visit family in Tucson and we spent 8 wonderful days at this beautiful and comfortable home in Vail. The open concept kitchen, dining, living room made it great from morning breakfast to evening happy hour. The sleeping quarters and bathrooms were well set up and very comfortable for all of us. The house has a great backyard that, regretfully, we didn’t get to use enough.
Sean was a great host, checking in when we first arrived to be sure we had everything we needed. He answered any questions we had very quickly.
The location at first may seem far away from Tucson, but in reality, it was not far at all and the drive along the edge of Saguaro Park East was very pretty and interesting. There is a good, challenging golf course very close to the house that the guys really enjoyed. It’s only about 4 miles to Colossal Caves. On Saturdays, there is a farmers market on Old Spanish Trail that was great fun to explore.
Thanks so much for staying at our home Julie (And siblings/family)! Julie was a fantastic client and took care of our home like her own. I would highly recommend them to anyone renting their home!
