About Karen Graham

I am a native Tucsonian. Have always loved its rich historical heritage of the rugged west flavored with indian and Spanish influence.

Why Karen Graham chose Arizona

Perfect view of Catalina Mountains. Neighborhood has that rural quiet & relaxed feeling with city conveniences minutes away. Additional savings for persons interested in long term rental (grater that 21 days). My prices are very competitive and my home exceptionally roomy and clean.

What makes this house unique

Great house for almost any group in Oro Valley

  • 5 of 5

My first impression of the house as we drove up was a nice looking ranch in the middle of a nice neighborhood. As we drove in, we passed shopping, restaurants and a LA Fitness all within a few miles. I thought it was perfect for my wife and I and I was right. The inside was spacious and modern. The back yard has a large porch which we spent many hours reading and relaxing. It was fun to feed the birds in the back yard with seed provided. We cooked outside on the grill about half the nights. At the back of the yard was a built in swimming pool that we swam in all but 1 day, very refreshing. We also played pool a few nights in the game room. With all the amenities the house has, we could have stayed another week and not used them all. It was a great experience.

Karen Gram the owner was great. She helped us with suggestions and ideas of what to do. We did a couple of bike trips with her bikes on a near by rail to trail system and Karen mapped out the route for us.

Overall I would say the experience was top notch. Everything and more was provided in the house. Although this trip was just my wife and myself, I could see our entire clan being comfortable and happy here for a long vacation. We plan to return!

We came to the Tucson area to hike, and this house situated in Oro Valley was the perfect location. The house is very clean, spacious and fully equipped with everything you could need. Karen the owner was very welcoming and accommodating. If you like to hike seven falls, blacketts ridge, Romero pools and Pima canyon trails were a few of our favorites. A visit to the Pima air & space museum and the dessert museum are worth the drive. We also really enjoyed the food at La Hacienda, Harvest restaurant and great craft beer and a hamberger at Noble Hops.

We would very much recommend this house :)

Most relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned home from our 10 day stay at Karen’s home.We absolutely loved it! Karen was wonderful and helpful with everything.Beginning from the start of making reservations to the last day of our trip.She was available during our stay and we had a few nice visits with her.

The home was immaculate and very spacious.Pictures never do justice of a home. My husband & I stayed with two 11-year olds and had more than enough room for us all.The living room was absolutely huge! Our family took full advantage of that to have dance parties!

The kitchen was fully equipped with a large fridge and plenty of counter space.It was fully stocked with all the dishes and utensils we needed.

The master bedroom was beautiful, with one large closet & one walk-in.All three bedrooms had very comfortable beds.

We spent most of our time on the patio & in the pool.The game room is attached outside to the patio & we spent many nights playing pinball & pool. It was such a nice amenity for family fun! It is also filled with enough toys & games to keep any family entertained.

We also used the bikes for evening rides in the neighborhood!On the road to the north there are purple pancake cacti! The Tucson/Oro Valley area is spread out yet we were still close to everything!

We could not have been more pleased with our stay.We have been renting private homes for years and this one is added to our favorites! The amenities provided put this house to the top of our list! Pool towels, laundry soap, games, bikes, books, movies & the list goes on.Do not rent a home ‘inside’ of Tucson!Relax on the outskirts of town in this amazing home!

Thank you again Karen for sharing your home with our family! It was very nice to visit with you and our girls fell in love with you! It was the most relaxing vacation we’ve had in a long time.

RECOMONDATIONS:Catalina State Park, trails, mountain views, cacti & gift shop.Airplane Tail on Sidewalk.Franklin Car Museum.Golf N Stuff.Oro Valley Farmers Market, best salsa & chips, dried snacks, fresh vegetables.4th Ave Shopping, Creative Ventures (Indian made products, souvenirs, t-shirts), Chocolate Iguana.Restaurants, All the Buzz Café(atmosphere, food, service), Home Plate Sports Pub(atmosphere, food, service, draft beer, best patty melts), Hub Restaurant & Creamery(gelato, food, service), Kon Tiki Restaurant(atmosphere, food, drinks, service), Mama’s Pizza(great pizza & Stromboli, best calzones)

Welcoming and Comfortable for ALL!

  • 5 of 5

We found Karen's home home to be exactly what we needed for our multi-generational family vacation. The location, layout, mountain view and pool made for a great week. This home is very clean and well-supplied with absolutely everything imaginable for a convenient stay. Our 9 month old grandson found lots of wonderful books and toys to play with and Karen was thoughtful enough to even supply a highchair for him. We fed the birds every day and felt like we were staying at a dear friend's home rather than a stranger's rental property! Karen obviously loves her home and enjoys sharing it with others. She was great to communicate with and made sure we knew how to contact her with any questions. The weather was lovely and we had great hiking in the Catalina Mountains and Sabino Canyon. One evening, we hosted a dinner and invited other family members who live in Oro Valley. Karen's home, patio and back yard with Chiminia were perfect for entertaining a group comfortably. We had 3 generations of family staying together for the week and this home was the perfect fit for us.

Very Relaxing Family Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a very relaxing family vacation in the Tucson area. Our party consisted of my wife and I plus our 21+ year old kids.

The property is older but spotless and everything is in perfect working order. Karen has provided every thing you need for a great relaxing family vacation, swimming pool, rec room with table tennis and pool table, nice barbeque, loads of board games and large library of classic movies on VHS. (Had to remind ourselves how to use those but got the hang of it very quickly)

We used it as a base to go see the sights and places of interest around Tucson by day and had a really comfortable home to come back to in the evening for a family meal on the covered deck watching.

Excellent value for money, Karen is a fabulous host and I throughly recommend this property. When we return to see the things we did not have time to do this trip we will be try to book this property again.
