About the property


Located in Viewpoint II, a small group of town homes hidden on a no outlet street at the foot of the Catalina Mountains (elevation 2575 feet). A very safe, quiet, serene and beautiful location. Conveniently located only 7 minutes from shopping and restaurants and 20 minutes to downtown. The town home is very comfortable and warmly furnished. Spacious outdoor living areas with

bbq grill, a landscaped area with a fountain and breathtaking views.

About Donna Kalinske

I was raised in Tucson, but following college I left for NYC and LA, returning here in 2005 to care for my mother. It was then that I rediscovered my love for the Sonoran Desert and for Tucson. Having studied design at UCLA and having worked in design for many years I thoroughly enjoyed both renovating and furnishing the home in Viewpoint II. I live in the same community and a day does not go by that I am not grateful for having discovered this beautiful spot.

Donna Kalinske purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Donna Kalinske chose Arizona

I want you to fall in love with the the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains and to have a quintessential desert experience.

I chose this home the moment I saw it and take great pleasure in sharing it and its breathtaking views with others.

What makes this townhome unique

The home has spectacular views. It is calming and restful and surrounded by nature. It is a haven and a retreat yet within minutes of shops, restaurants and galleries and only 20 minutes to the University of Arizona, a Tucson jewel not to be missed. It is also only 2.6 miles to Sabino Canyon, a spectacular desert oasis for walking and hiking.

We've rented numerous HomeAway properties and this one was superb. The location was perfect for hitting many of the Tucson highlights. My husband and I enjoyed our daily walks thru the Sabino Canyon which is a short drive away by car. If you enjoy cooking, this town house is fully stocked.

We loved Donna's Home

  • 5 of 5

The home is very nice, everything was in really good shape, with a new modern kitchen. We enjoyed the back wall of glass, with a great view of the mountains. We also spent a lot of time out on the patio, enjoying the view and the gas grill. The home was well stocked with towels, paper products and kitchen

items. It was clean and well maintained.

We would stay there again!!!

Ever changing views of the Catalina Mountain Range

  • 5 of 5

As a graduate of the University of Arizona, I was very interested

in exploring the physical and cultural landscape of Tucson

after being away for 40+ years. My wife and I were not disappointed. Tucson has a great climate in January-March

that affords a great opportunity to explore the many cultural

offerings and the numerous mountain ranges that envelope the


This townhome was a great place from which to experience

all that Tucson has to offer. Shopping and amenites are close

by; numerous hiking trails and walking opportunites are easy

drives from the townhome. This rental has a wonderful patio

that squarely faces the Catalina Mountains on Tucson's

northern edge. The wonderful view can be enjoyed at all hours

of the day with clouds, sunrises, and sunsets changing the

view minute by minute. A short walk out the front

door leads you to a viewing area looking west over the Tucson

Mountains with glorious sunsets almost on a nightly basis

The interior of the rental is very comfortable and Donna's

decorating touch made for a clean, warm and cozy place to hang out during the evenigs we were there. The rental is amply stocked with many items that, frankly, we didn't expect to find

there and meant we did not need to go shopping for anything

that we might need.

I really don't want to recommend this rental because it may

mean that it will be more difficult to rent in coming years, but

I do recommend it highly.

Pure Tranquility with Perfect Views

  • 5 of 5

What can I add to the reviews already written? Donna was a charming host and from the booking process to our arrival was helpful and easy going. The amenities she provides are over and above what other home owners do, we rent across the world and have never had so much provided for guests. The house is beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfortable after some we had used on this trip. We spent many hours in the garden watching the birds, quails and squirrels squabbling over the food and the hummingbird was a regular visitor to the water feature for his drink. The garden area is beautifully laid out with several different areas to sit, eat and relax, complete bliss. On top of all this the house is close to several shopping and dining area's making everything very accessible. It was very hard to drag ourselves away after 10 days, I could easily have stayed on for another 10 if not more it is so tranquil. Thank you Donna for allowing us the use of your lovely home, I will definitely be recommending you to friends.
