Our rental is a very clean (nonsmoking) home. It sits on 1.5 acres that have been cleared, fenced and gated. We have some of the best unobstructed views of the Catalina mountains in Tucson.
Everything is furnished, bed linens, towels and anything you would need in a kitchen. We also have a full size washer and dryer. All the rooms have been tastefully decorated. The rental is split floor plan, the master is on one side with bath. The other two bedrooms and bath are on the opposite side of the home. It is a perfect floor plan.
Located 20 miles north of Tucson, Catalina began in the 1870's as the Rail N Ranch, a working cattle ranch. In 1959, Lloyd W. Golder III purchased the ranch and renamed it the Golder Ranch. In 1949, E. B. Garner and his wife bought 112 acres of the land and a year later began selling parcels which later grew into the town of Catalina, named for the surrounding Catalina Mountains. Today, this quiet hamlet is experiencing mild growth with a steady influx of families and retirees, along with the addition of new strip malls. The Catalina area is largely rural but evolving toward a more suburban setting as new developments move into the area. Local retail trade and services support the large numbers of winter residents attracted to Catalina from November through April.
The 1.5 acres are cleared ( BONUS: Plenty of room to park your RV.)
We moved to the Oro Valley, north of Tucson, from Pittsburgh, PA. When it was retirement time we knew we wanted to leave the snow shovels behind. We have been here full time for 12 years. I feel I'm on vacation everyday.
Our home is only 8 miles from the our rental home.
Linda purchased this house in 2011
The views, location, weather and did I mention the views.
The views from this home are spectacular. You can sit on the deck in the afternoon and watch the mountains turn pink. What they say here in Tucson is, when the mountains turn pink it's time for a drink.
During the winter you will have days the mountains have snow.
The sky and stars are beautiful there are no lights to obstruct your star gazing.
We love spending our vacation here, it really is a home away from home - although with rather more spectacular views than our usual ones!
It's quiet, semi rural location is a nice change from typical urban settings and the place is extremely well appointed with housewares, furniture etc. Lots of room for 2 or 3 couples.
When we arrived it was apparent that cleaning standards are very high and important to the owner as it was spotless.
The location is good with short drives to some fairly major shopping areas, movie theaters, golf courses and other local attractions.
If internet connectivity is something you want/need, set up your mobile carrier for roaming while you're here.
My wife and I ( 60 something couple from Minnesota) had 15 days at the house in February 2017. We looked at the Santa Catalina Mountains from our living room or deck every chance we could get. Linda and Tom were easy to talk to, gracious hosts and answered all our questions. We used the place as a jumping off point for all there is to see/do in the Greater Tucson Area. Good break for us.
This was our second stay here and we already booked for next year. Linda and Tom are friendly and excellent hosts. They go to great lengths to make sure your stay is as perfect as can be. The house is exquisitely clean, spacious, and well equipped. The property is set in a peaceful rural location with views of the Catalina mountains and is near to everything offered in Oro Valley.
This was our third visit, so obviously it's a winner for us. It's supremely comfortable, and Linda and Tom are terrific, making every effort to see that their guests are happy.
We really enjoyed our one month stay here. In every way, it met or exceeded our expectations. The house is spacious, clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The location provides scenic views of the Catalina Mountains and is nearby to all the offerings and conveniences of Oro Valley. The owners are very responsive and easy to deal with. We're already looking forward to returning next year.
We are about 4 mile from the Oro Valley Market Place. The Market Place is home to Best Buy, Multiplex theaters, Olive Garden, Red Lobster,The Keg, Walmart Supercenter, and many other stores.
Oro Valley Hospital and Medical Center is 4 miles from our home.
Catalina is home to the world-renowned Miraval Life in Balance spa and to the Univeristy of Arizona's Biosphere 2 Center, one of the largest living Earth eco-replica laboratories in the world, located north of town. Outdoor recreation is outstanding in nearby Catalina State Park and Coronado National Forest, with camping, hiking and equestrian trails. Trails around Catalina provide easy access to the Sutherland Wash, Romero Creek and the Canada del Oro Wash.
Tucson is a wonderful historic city,so many things to do visit Historic Tucson studios, Sabino Canyon, and Pima Air Museum, just to name a few.
