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 (greater that 21 days). My prices are very competitive and my home exceptionally clean, roomy, and perfect location.

What makes this house unique

Caretaker/manager lives close to make sure your stay is worry free. Central to many attractions and close access to main streets and interstate.

A verycomfortable Tucson home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time inTucson and found Karen's home to be perfect for a family vacation. It was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen well well-equipt. Karen was great and texted us to see if we needed anything. The location made it a good home base for day trips in southern Arizona. I would rent this property again, however, it should be noted that the pool is not heated. (Only a problem for the winter.) Also, although the house is on one level, there is a "step-down" from the front door and another step leading to the kitchen and bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Stephanie and family thank-you so much for your visit in my home! It is important to me to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The pool is an added amenity and very easily heated. Would welcome your family back anytime and I do give a 10% loyalty discount. Wish you happy holidays!

Very nice, quiet location near lots of activities and having everything you could need

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Karen's home in July and thoroughly enjoyed Arizona. The home was in a great neighborhood that was wonderful for nature walks...lots of native wildlife close by. The home contained more entertainment options than we had time for. Nice pool, a pool table in the recreation area, toys and games, books, DVDs, etc. If we had been there in cooler weather we would have really enjoyed using the bicycles she provided. The area is very bike friendly. Grocery stores and restaurants were a very short drive away.

We look forward to returning at a time of the year that we can enjoy the outdoors all day. All you need is your clothing and personal effects. Karen has stocked the home with pretty much anything else you could need and a washer and dryer to take care of the clothes, so not much is needed!

We loved the Oro Valley area and are very glad that we chose Karen's rental.

Relaxing home with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful July 4th week at Karen's home. The home is spotless. We found every kitchen item we needed to host a party while staying at the home. There are so many things to do here you feel like you are in a resort. Wonderful place to watch fireworks from the carport. Shopping at Premium Outlets, Whole Foods, Dickmans and Foothills Mall are just minutes away. There are state parks all around. Karen did everything perfectly.

Being close to so many amenities yet in a quiet neighborhood does make my home a great place to stay and return to in the future. Come back anytime, Annette and Randy, and don't forget that 10% loyalty discount is yours. Such a pleasure meeting you all!

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!
