About the property

2 BR 2 full baths, Mountain View with King and 2 Twin Beds, sleeps 4. Smart TV.

This is a great holiday rental to come back to each year for a couple!

The Santa Fe designed villa is furnished in a soft southwestern style and located in a park-like guard-gated community in the midst of giant Saguaro Cacti. The villa sits up against the Catalina Mountains in Tucson giving year round contact with desert fauna and flora. Designed for a quality experience, tenants feel pampered enjoying the heated community pool and exercise rooms and walking over 6 miles of winding roads within the community of Sin Vacas.

April & May for peak desert flowers blooming; June & July for monsoons and greening of desert; October to December for extending your summer activities.

We have two furnished villas for Snowbirds! The other villa is 2 BR 1 1/2 baths, King Bed with Queen Sofa Bed in other bedroom. Sleeps 4, Smart TV and Direct TV Channels.


Living in the Sin Vacas Gated Community: Sin Vacas is a large guard-gated community situated right up against the Santa Catalina Mountains. The community includes about 100 single unit homes, a premiere assisted living facility and 72 condo-style villas. Approximately 50% of the villa members are owners while the rest are long-term or three month tenants. Rentals under three months are discouraged by the Villa Home Owners Association and as a result, members of the community know and feel comfortable with neighbors whether exercising in the club house, swimming in the pool or walking along the roadways. There is a gentle way of life at Sin Vacas. You will get to know community members quickly. Expect them to extend a hand of welcome and be prepared to reciprocate. You will find neighbors friendly and actively involved in area pursuits of golfing, walking, hiking and just enjoying the amenities of Tucson. Choose Sin Vacas and find out what makes it so special.

Enjoying the High Desert: Life in a desert can be hot and dusty, but in Tucson, where the elevation is over 3000 feet and mountain ranges surround the city, the desert is anything but hot and dusty. The days and nights in Tucson are cooler than Phoenix and plant and animal life abound. Since the community of Sin Vacas is located in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, you will be see a large variety of flowering bushes and cacti. You will see an abundance of birds, including cardinals doves, quail, woodpeckers and road runners. You may even spot small families of javelina foraging with their young among the prickly pear cacti. Since Pima County bylaws prohibit the use of street lights at night to accommodate the Kitt Peak observatories located just to the west, you will enjoy the night stars like you have never seen them before from the comfort of the back patio as the air cools off. The Tucson area supported humans for thousands of years. Come to the High Desert and understand why!

Finding a Pattern to Suit your Needs: When you first come to the Villa, it takes a week or so to explore the neighborhood, the city and the region. Then, once familiar with the area, you may discover the amenities that Sin Vacas itself offers. You might have friends or family nearby and enjoy their company around the clubhouse and pool. Or you might explore the mountain ranges that ring the city, or golf at nearby 18 hole par 3 courses as an amateur or 18 hole PGA courses for more challenge. In the evenings, you can enjoy relaxing outside at the back Sedona slate patio and light some luminarios to create a cone of candle light around you. Luminarios are little paper bags, a candle and some sand with the top of the bag turned down about a third. You will find that candles in pottery with designs cut into them available at the villa are excellent luminarios. Whatever your preferences, whatever activities you choose, you will find the Villas at Rancho Sin Vacas to support your needs. Find a healthy lifestyle at Sin Vacas.

About Tom or Susan

Susan and I are retired University Professors. We bought our first Villa at Rancho Sin Vacas in 2000, the second one in 2003 and the third one in 2014. We live in one of them and offer the other two Villas to guests. Our goal is to offer guests modern, clean and comfortable accommodations at an affordable rate.

Why Tom or Susan chose Arizona

Susan and I love the high desert landscape that is Rancho Sin Vacas. It is located right up against the National Saguaro Forest in the Catalina Mountains. Guests are treated to a beautifully untouched saguaro forest that will create indelible memories that will last the rest of their lives.

What makes this villa unique

The back patios are East facing and perfect for sitting out with friends in the evenings. The views of the Catalina Mountains, less than half a mile away, are astounding. The community is a mixture of permanent residents and guests who return year after year, and this mixture creates a sense of 'home.'
