About Steve & Susan

I have lived in this area many years and love the peaceful surroundings. This property was originally built for my father who pasted away before he had a chance to enjoy it. The many compliments we have received from friends and family members is what encouraged us to make it a vacation destination. We hope you feel the same way about Tucson as we do after a relaxing stay!

Steve & Susan purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

While spending time at this perfect retreat, watch for desert wildlife, take a relaxing stroll, grill at the outside kitchen and enjoy dinner by the patio fireplace, or play a few rounds of golf at nearby Starr Pass, El Rio or Silverbell Courses. Silverbell Golf Course is within walking distance!

Guestbook comments from the owner

January 17, 2014

The rental was beautifully decorated, spacious and well equipped, light filled and airy. Very clean, well maintained, and up-to-date. The views were superb from the enormous deck, inviting al fresco dining. From this location, one could choose from nearby trailheads for superb hikes. Far enough from the bustle to really appreciate the natural surroundings. Access to the downtown was easy on the lesser traveled roads. Very comfortable with a true southwestern feel, and all the amenities.

Great Location, Thoughtful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well-appointed guest unit. Spacious, attractively furnished and surrounded by nature. Watch for rabbits, road runners and horseback riders in the mornings and coyotes in the evenings. The kitchen and baths are roomy and exceptionally well-equipped. In-room laundry is a big plus. Because the unit sits above a four car garage there is plenty of privacy and no need to tiptoe. As a bonus, parking in the garage was offered, with remote. The pleasant hosts are on-site and very respectful of guest's privacy. Oh, and did I mention that big, comfy nest of a bed? Just what we needed after a long day at the Gem Shows. The deck affords privacy so that doors can be left open without feeling exposed. The only caveat that I would offer is that the stairs are steep and wouldn't be appropriate for those with mobility issues.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The home was in a really convenient neighborhood. It is close to downtown Tucson, Saguaro West National Park, the Desert Museum, the freeway and good eating spots. It was very spacious.vews from the big deck were great in several directions. The kitchen was well equipped and roomy. It was very nice of the owners to allow us to park our car in the garage under the rental. They were accommodating whenever we had issues. We thought that there were a couple of things that needed updating: the master bed was very soft, hard to get in and out of and high for 70+ year olds, the front door from the deck needed a new lock, the barbeque did not work very well even after the owner worked on it. Nevertheless, the home was a fun location for the 4 of us from Minnesota. It was fun watching the coyotes from the deck walk up and down the road!

Spacious, Convenient and Well-Maintained - a Wonderful Place to Stay in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a two-week stay at this property during the time of the Tucson Gem and Mineral show. We enjoyed our stay very much. We were immediately impressed by the spacious layout which includes two large bedrooms, each with it's own full bathroom. Although there were only two of us there we noticed that the bedroons are well-separated by an intervening hallway so that two couples could easily share the appartment and still have plenty of privacy.

The kitchen is large with plenty of cabinet space and was better equiped than other units we have rented in the past. My wife did a lot of cooking while we were there and all of the kitchen appliances worked well. The owners were able to provide any cooking utensils that were not initially available. The outdoor kitchen is actually attached to the owners house, not the appartment, but was available for our use and was reasonably convenient. I grilled some chicken on the large outdoor propane grill one night and the grill worked well.

In the evenings we enjoyed relaxing in the living room with its large TV or listening to CDs that we had brought with us. The satellite TV service had a good selection of channels and we had good WiFi reception for my laptop computer. The appartment was very well-maintained and really provided everything we wanted.

The appartment sits above a 4-car garage and it was nice to be able to put our car in the garage each night. The owner even provided an automatic garage door opener! The area around the garage is well lit as are the stairways. There are a lot of stairs to climb to get up to the appartment so someone with knee or hip problems might have difficulty with that. This was not a problem for us and the payoff was the fantastic view of the mountains that was provided by the extra elevation. We saw a number of fabulous sunrises during our stay.

The owner's house and the appartment are located on a gravel road and are well removed from other houses so there was never an issue with neighborhood noise. The gravel road is short and is easily traversable by a standard car.

The location was very convenient for us. A shopping area with a grocery store and drugstore was only about 2 miles away and it was very easy to get downtown to the convention center or to get on I-10 to go either east or west.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend this property to anyone who does not have difficulty climbing stairs.

Great place

We had a great time in this house in Tucson. The place was spotless and the rooms very spacious. It had everything we could wish for. Susan and Steve even arranged a baby bed for our one-year-old. We can really recommand staying here!

Great, secluded retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the guesthouse and had a wonderful time. The property is first-rate and well-appointed. The mountain and desert views are great. The location provides a nice combination of seclusion and easy access to the University area and downtown (~10 minute drive). Our daughter is already insisting that we rent the house again on our next trip to Tucson!
