About Sharon Jacobs

Hello to my fellow travelers:

I thought, I would share a little about my self... I originally came from Portland, Oregon born and lived there until my move here to Green Valley, AZ in 2007.

I do enjoy the desert living and all the things this retirement community offers, hope you will come and visit us and discover the wonders of the desert, as I have done.

Wishing you Happy Trails in all your travels!

Sharon Jacobs... Green Valley, AZ

Sharon Jacobs purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Sharon Jacobs chose Green Valley

The Great Views of the Santa Rita Mountains in the back ground; the Desert Hills Golf Range in the fore ground... which makes it a very Serene Location, and the greens draws the animals... which makes for a lot of animal action!

Enjoyed the sunny casita and mountain view

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed stay Sharon's casita. The bed was very comfortable, and kitchen well equipped. It met all of our needs. We really enjoyed the use of the GVR, there were so many things to do. I wish we had more time there.

We especially enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio with a stunning view of the mountains.

A very good place to stay in Green Valley.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Sharon's casita in Green Valley. The casita is located close to recreation centers, shops, golf courses. There is a beautiful view of the mountains from the living room and patio. The layout is very good. The skylights provide a lot of light. The property was clean and well maintained. There was no phone or internet access, we got these services on our own.

We enjoyed playing tennis, hiking the numerous trails around Green Valley and Tucson area and visiting museums and other tourist attractions.

We would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Be aware of potential costs

  • 3 of 5

As advertised this casita has good views of the Santa Rita Mountains from the rear patio. It is also comfortably appointed with a good array of kitchen and dining items. The king bed was a plus. While I enjoyed my Dec. and Jan. stay at this casita, I feel renters may not get a complete picture of potential costs from the listing. Final tenant charges may be more than what is listed as rent on the website. Currently, internet/wifi is “available” and will be an additional charge per month (I was quoted $80 per month). For TV, Cox basic cable is provided, which gets you NBC, ABC, CBS, and public TV. If you want expanded basic with cable channels such as CNN, MSNBC, ESPN & ESPN2 which I did, it cost me an additional $40 per month. And, what is not mentioned on the website nor in my advance conversations with the owner, is that the lease contract indicated that tenants will be charged for gas and electric when either totals over $35 a month. It makes sense to have tenants pay for exceptional gas and electric and to make this clear upfront. However, charges the owner includes when calculating the $35 amount are not just “usage” charges, but also the monthly “basic service charge” of $10 that has nothing to do with excessive use. So, to avoid the extra gas fee for example, one really must use less than $25 worth of gas to avoid kicking in the extra cost. Ask the questions, get all the details before you rent.

Owner's Response: Dean: I really feel I to need clear up some very untrue statements you made on your review. 1- I never stated the Cox charged $80 per month for internet service; I did however; tell you it would be $43 at the time of your booking; (a year ago) and to be perfectly clear, there has been a price increase,(from Cox) and it is now $48; but where you got $80 I do not know! 2- You called me requesting the additional channels and already knew the extra change.. Since, it is very clear basic cable is provided. So, why are bringing it up now..? 3- Yes, I did put a cap on gas, and electric usage as it was getting way out there; this is often what happens when someone else is paying the bills. However, for your 2 months stay $16.55 over for the month of December as you know was a colder month this year; then January which you were only over by $6.31. 4- I did however; notice you never gave mention to the $200 discount I gave you on your rental rate for the colder month of December! 4- I was happy to read you did enjoy the accommodations this Casita had to offer and I thank you for that.

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

This casita is well furnished and comfortable. The view of the Santa Rita Mountains is superb. Both of my sisters were living in the area while we were there (March 2012) and they had views but we agreed ours won first prize!

We definitely would stay in this casita again. It is off the main road and peaceful and private yet with ready access to all that the area offers.

Yes, the view is wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Casita in Desert Hills very much. Each day we had a wildlife experience down on the golf course below in the canyon..or right outside our patio door.. Havelina Mom with baby came to visit, put the noses right up the closed patiodoor..(stay away, they can be nasty if provoked). We were glad to take a close up look and that the door was closed..Havelinas are also called "Skunkpigs" for a reason,lthough, they are not pigs but peccary.Bobcat with kitten one night and Coyotes several times..The birdlife is very intense and the rabbit population increasing. A lot of sightseeing available around the area if you are not spending the time on one of the many Golf courses or recreational center. Found several nice restaurants in the different golf clubs..and other local restaurants. Our two months came and went too fast. Thank you Sharon !
