My husband and I are Minnesotans. We never really thought about vacationing in Arizona until our two daughters moved to Tucson and Phoenix. We love Tucson! It has mountain ranges in all directions. We love to hike Catalina State Park or other closeby hiking trails. As real estate investors, we realized Tucson was a smart investment area. Our home is peaceful with gorgeous views- very private, yet centrally located. We look forward to your visit to our home. We love it here and we know you will too. We love the views from the sun room and the back yard while sitting in the sauna, hot tub, or just sitting at the patio table. There are also city lights and gorgeous sunsets to be seen! A very private setting. We hope you decide to stay with us, because you will want to come back on your next vacation!
Sue purchased this House in 2008
Why Sue chose Rancho Catalina
All of Tucson has mountain views but this home looks like it's tucked in to the mountain. If you are looking for a vacation near Tucson sites, this home is just a few blocks over the Oro Valley line, which makes it central to everything. We love the mountain views from the living room or the sun room or office and Master bedroom. It feels as though we are in the country up here. It is extremely tranquil- hear the coyotes at night -
What makes this House unique
We love the views from the back yard or the front yard - three mountain ranges can be seen. The house is extremely comfortable- complete with an Arizona room, plus a private den/office. Inside- modern bamboo floors. Comfortable Furnishings- love the master bed- better than the one in my own home! Fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need. You will love staying here... If tranquility, nature, and mountains are what you are looking for in a place for your next vacation, then look no further. The backyard oasis is completely fenced and has two flagstone patios, a ramada complete with hot tub and infrared sauna. Grill away on the portable gas grill located just off the main patio with dining table and two chaise lounge chairs. For those evening campfires, there's a portable fire pit for your use- horseshoes for some competitive play, along with a ladderball game for more outdoor activity. If you want to see birds, merely hang a seed bell from the last Palo Verde tree by the cedar rail fence, or hang another one between the rails, and in a day or two you will be amazed at all variety of birds, including Quail, you will have attracted. Rancho is truly a wonderfully comfortable home- quiet surroundings, breathtaking mountain views with nature abounding- plus, convenient to all activities, shopping, the back way to Phoenix. Our hope is that once you stay at 'Rancho' you will want to come back again and again- whether for a family gathering for a holiday week, or great for cycling enthusiasts, or snow birds looking for a longer stay... you'll love 'Rancho' for your retreat. We do accept well behaved dogs, so you may bring your pet friend/children with you!(some restrictions may apply.) Beauty, peaceful surroundings, comfort, and location are key components to 'Rancho's' appeal. Book early so as not to be disappointed.

Excellent accomodations, great back yard and everything clean and neat!!
My guests and I really enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed in the way of bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens was available....even birdseed. Which was necessary because of the many birds that visited during our stay Even had an elusive roadrunner go through the yard. And the backyard was a great pleasure to be in and view every morning and evening, even though we did not use the sauna or hot tub.
We had a wonderful month in Tucson staying at Rancho. The beautiful view of the mountains from the backyard was my favorite part of this home. We enjoyed the sunrises with coffee, and the sunsets with a glass of wine every day! The home is convenient to many Tuscon attractions including Catalina State Park and the bike path, and also to grocery stores and restaurants. Sue was wonderful to work with. We would most certainly recommend this property.
Thank you for the great comments about your stay at Rancho and we do hope you stay with us again, as you discovered Rancho is a great, private home, centrally located to all shopping, hiking, biking and restaurants - not to mention the drop-dead gorgeous view of Pusch Ridge and the sunsets over the Tucson Mountains and the night twinkle of city lights.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Thank you to Sue and Terry for sharing their wonderful 'Rancho' with us. The house is nicely updated with a comfortable decor, wonderful beds and a kitchen filled with everything you need to make your own meals. The landscaped backyard is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee, enjoy the view of Pusch Ridge and watch birds eating at the feeders. The hot tub was a big hit and what fun to roast marshmallows in the fire pit. We were lucky to see a bobcat walk through the front yard as we were watching the beautiful sun set from the front porch.
The location is great; close to shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed eating at the Harvest and don't forget Jerry Bob's for breakfast. This is a great starting place to see all of the sights of Tucson.
A special thank you for renting to people with dogs. Our dog loved exploring the backyard and we took numerous walks around the neighborhood meeting other dog walkers on our route. We every saw a coyote.
Sue was very helpful and just a phone call away if we needed anything. We would definitely stay at 'Rancho' again.
Pat, We are so glad you and your Husband loved 'Rancho', and hope you stay with us again next time your visit Tucson. Thank you for being such great guests.
We enjoyed our stay. The house is nicely decorated with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. It was fun using the hot tub, sauna, & fire pit. Lots of wildlife & a beautiful view of the mountains. Nice quiet neighborhood with trails & shopping close by. The owner was wonderful to deal with. Thanks again.
So glad you both enjoyed our home we call "Rancho." We really appreciate all the kind words, Barbara and Richard. Please stay with us again, your next trip to Tucson/Oro Valley!

Great Location and Great Facilities
My wife and I visited Rancho for the second time this year. The house is comfortable and well stocked and looked after. We continue to find the property exactly as advertised and the landlords, Sue and Terry, went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our visit. The house is located on a fenced lot which is a great size and while there are neighbour's about, they are far enough away to ensure privacy. We were particularly grateful that we were able to bring our small dog with us. I have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone interested in visiting the Tucson area and we expect to return again very soon.
So glad you are returning guests to our home we call "Rancho", Bryan and Lee, and that you find our home comfortable and welcoming, as well as safe for your dog, Connor. We are honored that you continue to choose our home for your vacation! See you in the near future !
Sue and Terry
Love this place!
We really enjoyed spending the month of March 2015 in this house. It's located in a development where most homes have some open land. It's about 3 blocks from a major north-south roadway which makes for easy access to most Tuscon destinations but has minimal neighborhood traffic (and not much traffic noise). It is a great place to walk around the neighborhood when you want to get out and you're just too exhausted to do another one of the nearby hiking trails. The house is very nicely furnished and was spotless when we arrived. Unlike other VRBO's we've rented the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our own meals. The beds were very comfortable and the owners were very attentive without being intrusive. This is the best VRBO we've stayed in, period.
