The desert is at your doorstep on Calle Acuarela. You can enjoy the wonderful view from the living room or get up close and personal as you sit on the back patio. And the name says it all. Calle Acuarela means Watercolor Way. From the pink and gold sunsets to the teeming verdant desert, it's no wonder that our street is called Watercolor Way in Spanish. This remodeled townhome has tile floors throughout (except in bedrooms). Even the covered patio is tiled. The fully equipped kitchen includes a breakfast area for two and upgraded appliances. Small appliances include toaster, coffee pot, mixer, crock pot, and blender, etc.The dining area is set up for four but the table is expandable for larger parties. There is a new 46'HDTV with DVD in the living room as well as a micro fiber sofa and rocker recliner Each of the spacious bedrooms has ample closet space and a personal HDTV with cable hookup. The bathrooms have skylights, new ADA highboy toilets and grab bars in the tub/showers. WIFI high speed wireless internet included. If you can pry yourself away from these wonderful accommodations there is a rec center with pool, hot tub & shuffleboard just around the corner

Green Valley Recreation: Green Valley Recreation membership is available for long term guests at a nominal fee and includes 13 recreational facilities located throughout Green Valley. Activities include swimming pools, fitness centers, arts and crafts rooms, jacuzzi, tennis courts, billiards, shuffleboard, dancing, ceramic and clay studios, woodworking, and computer club and more. Special interest classes are available and a catalog is printed twice a year with listings. The offerings include calligraphy, geneaology, yoga, etc. It's no wonder many retirees say they are busier now than they were during their working life.

Our townhouse is centrally located in Green Valley. Close to it all!

Golf: Green Valley is a golfer's paradise. There are nine course available for a nominal fee and three private courses. And, if that's not enough there are at least a dozen other courses within an hour's drive. Golf is a way of life in Green Valley, so much so that golf carts are considered a second car. And, golf cart lanes are featured on many streets. It's no surprise though, because the sunshine allows for play literally 365 days per year!

Explore Madera Canyon!: The Santa Rita Mountains and Madera Canyon are just 15 miles from Green Valley. The canyon, carved out by Madera Creek, is home to a vast assortment of wildlife. In the spring and summer the bird watching experience is unrivaled. This lush riparian habitat offers several hiking trails, picnic areas and overnight cabins where you can enjoy the the great outdoors.

'Southeast Arizona is like no other place. A collection of high mountains surrounded by desert seas, the 'Sky Islands' are islands of rock, islands of vegetation, and islands of wildlife. It is an area that hosts the most eclectic collection of natural and American history anywhere.' - from 'The Sky Islands of Southeast Arizona' by K. Crowley & M. Link.

About Rich

We are a retired couple who moved to Green Valley from the Phoenix area. I know - why leave Phoenix? Well, we wanted to be away from the maddening crowds. Green Valley has a small town feel and when you need everything a big city has to offer you can go to Tucson. It's only 20 minutes away on I-19. So we have the best of both worlds. And as a bonus the weather is better, the views are spectacular, the amenities are great and the people are friendly. What more could we ask?

Rich purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Rich chose Green Valley

We live in and LOVE Green Valley! We bought this house with an eye to the future. It is not as big and requires less maintenance than the house we are currently in. When the time comes and we are not able to take care of this big house we will still be able to enjoy everything the area has to offer.

What makes this townhome unique

The floor plan is perfect. - very little wasted space. And the guest bedroom can be set up as a suite with it's own bath. It is a quiet end unit with the desert at the back door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Due to medical reasons we had to return to Green Valley for a month. This townhouse was a delight. I dreaded making the trip but after a month here I almost didn't want to go home! Everything you could ever need was here. The evenings on the patio were so enjoyable. Who says don't go to Arizona in the summertime?

Wonderful desert home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home; clean, convenient, and beautiful view looking out at the desert. We hope to return and have already recommended it to other family members. The owner called after our arrival to see if we were comfortable or needed anything.

This place was truly awesome. It has all the comforts of home. There were 2 bedroom suites, for privacy, with TVs in both as well as in the living room. It has a great patio, with shade where we ate breakfast most mornings, bird watching: humming birds, doves, cardinals, quail, road runners and more. It was a private sanctuary, yet had friendly neighbors. The home was tastefully done, making it pleasing to the eye and comfortable. It is equipped with a full kitchen, for those that want to eat at home and yet it has a convenient list and map for all of the local restaurants for those that like to dine out. The closets were filled with pool towels, bath towels,sheets, spare pillows, blankets and more and left us with more than adequate space for our clothing. The WIFI was quick and the Direct TV was convenient to use. The owner was very attentive if there was a question and quick with a response.

The pool was very well maintained and within walking distance. It's convenient to a multitude of other activities, from golf to casinos, museums, shopping and much much more.

My 95 year old mother stayed with us and she uses a walker. The layout of the house was extremely convenient for her. She sat out front and back and moved about the house with no problems at all. The house even had a shower chair for her convenience.

We have been snowbirds here for a few years, but this year we came out for the summer months. I would highly recommend this place to any one, anytime of the year. A+ Rating! Thank you!!! Scott, Gerri and Alice :)

A great place for retirees with an active lifestyle. Join in year round pastimes like golf, tennis, swimming, birding, hiking, bridge, astronomy, shopping and various events at the many rec centers. Tucson is just minutes away on I-19. Area attractions include: Madera Canyon, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, University of Arizona, Old Tucson Studios, International Wildlife Museum, Desert Diamond Casino, Mission San Xavier del Bac, Pima Air & Space Museum, Tubac, Tumacacori Mission, Titan Missile Museum, Tucson Museum of Art, Kartchner Caverns, Tombstone (the town too tough to die), Bisbee Copper Queen Mine, Mount Lemmon and Saguaro National Park. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in early February draws exhibitors from around the world - a must if you are a rock hound or into beading. Annual temperatures average 80 degrees during the daytime and 50 degrees at night. Our sunsets are fabulous, our neighbors welcoming and our starry nights beyond compare. You deserve to spend some time here

Other Activities: bingo, cards, sauna, billiards, crafts, concerts, bird watching......
