Great house

  • 4 of 5

I hate to give this lovely property 4 stars, but you'll understand why here shortly.

This was an excellent setup for our group. We rented this property for a wedding in Tucson. Overall, it was great and we would definitely stay again.

However, this receives 4 stars due to the lack of curtains or blinds. I understand the views are what make the house, but not having an option to sleep in was awful. I stayed in the master bedroom and the sun was beaming in bright as can be before 6 am. So if you're planning on getting some reprieve from your day to day, this may not be for you. I live in a central time zone and I'm not used to bright sun before 8 am. This made my stay very exhausting especially with wedding activities and late nights.

It was a great location, though. Close proximity to everything we needed. I would definitely stay again, but would be bringing a sleeping mask this time around.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry you had this experience, Mical. I'm a bit of a loss to as to how to respond. The Master suite has outside exposure from 2 directions. On the south side there are internal shutters which are almost always kept shut. These are made of wood and provide almost blackout protection. On the west side there is a covered balcony with double wooden doors with glass panels and two large windows on either side. They all have full coverage of all the glass space with good quality cellular shades that can be raised up or lowered down. They don't provide blackout coverage but between them and the coverage of the roof over the balcony there is significant protection. You were charming guests to have and although I was not informed beforehand that there would be wedding events at the house you left it in very good condition. I might look into putting in floor to ceiling blackout curtains.

Nice Home and beautiful setting

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the home is nice and we enjoyed our time there. However, the home is somewhat outdated. The home advertises it sleeps up to 8 people, however with only 2 full baths, 4 adults is about the maximum unless couples wish to share a bathroom.

The landscaping, patio , hottub and pool area are beautiful and added much to our time there.

Overall, the home is very nice, but it is overpriced compared to others in the area due to only 2 full bathrooms and the outdated furnishings in the home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, Scott. we do make a great effort to keep the house in very good condition. I am making improvements all the time. I also try to make the pricing fair. $371 per day for a 3,000 sq ft. 4 bedroom house with your own swimming pool, spa, privacy, 3 car garage and a magnificent 2 story living room, dining area and large open kitchen in tasteful Southwestern style seems to me to be a good value during the month of the Gem show. At a good hotel in that time I think one can get a 180 sq ft room for 2 for around that price. I'm very sorry that you were disappointed that there were not enough bathrooms for the 4 of you. In my description of the house on this site, and on my website which I provided to you I make every attempt to clearly describe each bedroom, walk in closet and bathroom. The most important thing is that you said you enjoyed staying at the house. Thank you for treating it so well. Regards Jeff

We won't stay in hotels anymore!

  • 5 of 5

From the meeting of the owners rep to locking the door on the way out, our stay was enjoyable. We had four couples and a baby and the spaciousness of the home gave such freedom of movement. We offered to prepare food (old family recipe) for the wedding reception, and the kitchen items were readily available. Would rent this home again if we travel to Tucson.

Spacious, beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

11 of us enjoyed a weeks stay in this spacious, comfortable, even luxurious home. We enjoyed the pool, which is warm and exquisitely landscaped. We were a little far from town, so the frequent trips to the supermarket were a bit inconvenient, but the beauty of our surroundings made up for that inconvenience.
