Welcome to Casa Campana, consistently among Southern Arizona's highest rated vacation rental properties.

AREA

This stunning 3,000 sq ft custom southwest traditional home (with an additional 1,000+ sq feet of covered patios) is situated on 3.3 private acres in the Tortolita Mountains foothills of the northern Tucson area, adjacent to the Dove Mountain resort community.

The majestic Sonoran Desert is breathtaking and perfect for biking, hiking or just relaxing and taking in the surrounding beauty. Enjoy the private setting with incredible views while maintaining a close proximity to shopping, great restaurants and some of the best golf Tucson has to offer.

COURTYARD

Open the gate to the serenity of the front courtyard, perfect for enjoying your morning tea, curling up with a book, or sharing intimate dinners. The soothing fountain, whimsical hummingbirds, comfortable furnishings, and magical evening lighting offer unique solitude and a calm hideaway.

INTERIOR SPACES

Once inside the villa, you will be enthralled by the spacious great room with polished concrete floors, high beamed ceilings and impressive custom woodwork throughout. With its championship billiard table, 60-inch flat screen, Bose surround sound and the latest media choices, this great room offers countless entertainment options.

The master bath provides a large walk-in shower with dual heads and separate soaking tub perfect for indoor relaxation.

Bed arrangement includes: Master Bedroom - King, 'Tahoe Bedroom' - King, 'Southwest Bedroom' - Queen, and 'Route 66 Bedroom' - Two Full beds.

OUTDOOR SPACES

While the home's interior is very comfortably furnished and equipped, Arizona life is all about the outdoors. Enjoy the exquisite weather year-round from the expansive outdoor living spaces including fully furnished covered patios, spa and heated swimming pool with natural boulder water feature just steps away.

Lose yourself in the surrounding beauty, sunning in the lagoon or napping on the covered pool-side Bali Bed by day; or gazing at the city lights while gathered around the gas fire feature by night. This Sonoran outdoor oasis is sure to captivate with its surrounding desert wildlife and beauty.

It is our sincere pleasure to welcome you to Casa Campana.

About Mark & Susan

We purchased this property after falling in love with Southern Arizona, its desert beauty, and the wonderful year-round weather. Being long-time Seattle area residents, it has been a welcome respite from the damp northwest winters. The weather here cannot be beat!

We enjoy all that Arizona has to offer - abundant golf, tennis, hiking, wildlife, cuisine, and most of all, Sunshine!!

We enjoy visiting as often as possible, for both needed R&R as a couple, as well as with extended family to reconnect. It is our hope that our guests come to love the property, amenities, and ambiance as much as we do.

Mark & Susan purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark & Susan chose Arizona

This property was chosen due to its uniqueness, privacy, and tranquil setting in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Unlike many vacation rental homes situated in dense neighborhoods, our guests enjoy significant privacy in a quiet peaceful suburban ranch environment (3+ acre and larger properties).

After an extensive on-line and in-person search, this home (later named Casa Campana – or ‘Bell House’) was the clear choice for these and many other factors that hopefully guests will experience and come to love for themselves.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this property include the pristine desert setting, abundant privacy and open space, many custom details inside and out, and the overall peacefulness it exudes.

Although the existing custom home provided a good starting point, we spent over a year developing the overall property into a premier vacation destination drawing on our experiences traveling to small boutique resorts in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Those reference points contributed to adding just the right furnishings, amusements, relaxation options, and luxury amenities to make Casa Campana an exceptional experience. This applies equally for those vacationing as families, as we do with our own young adult children, or as couples seeking rest and tranquility.

Many guests have commented that their time at Casa Campana was like a retreat at their own personal, private resort. We couldn't agree more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our three weeks at Casa de Campana. The pool and spa are lovely - no need to leave the villa. The welcome package was delightful and a very nice touch - made us feel very welcome. Thank you.

Immaculate, luxurious Private desert villa!

  • 5 of 5

Triple A+++, would give this rental 1000 stars if possible! Usually, after two weeks of vacation , I'm ready to go home. This time, was seriously considering staying longer! The pictures do this place no justice, it's spectacular! The level of care, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail is unparallelled in any other property I've ever stay at.

The outdoor area is hevenly, with loads of cozy seating, beautiful plants , and an amazing pool. We paid for the gas to heat up the pool, and we spent many happy hours playing in there! The hot tub, and over sized fire pit made the perfect location to watch the stars come out.

The house itself has everything you could need! We really enjoyed all the board games, and even completed a 1000 piece puzzle! The beds are comfortable, rooms spacious, and everything decorated so beautifully. You can see a lot of care went into making it a special home.

We love this rental so much, we've already booked it again for next year. It's private setting, in the lovely Marana area made it the perfect base to explore all the Tucson area has to offer.

But truly.. It's the fact that sweetest people ever own this home that make it truly special : Mark and Susan were helpful, and attentive, even taking time out of their own vacation to make sure things were going smoothly for ours. From lovely welcome baskets, to helpful guides, to a smooth check out, they are amazing to work with.

Book this property today- before someone snaps up your dates (like me, haha).

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post such a kind and thoughtful review. We are thrilled when our guests love the Casa as much as we do and your words spoke directly to our hearts. The property was a true labor of love for us, combining aspects that we have enjoyed from our travels. We wanted to make sure that there were a variety of places to gather no matter the time or day, or the season. The best part is that you don't even have to wake up early in the morning to secure a good spot. We are thrilled that you will be returning next year and we look forward to catching up with you then. Warmest Regards, Susan and Mark

LUXURY AND RELAXATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe this fantastic home. When we arrived we were overwhelmed with the beauty and the detail to every room and the backyard oasis is incredible. The owners Mark and Susan had a special tote bag filled with so many fantastic Arizona keepsakes, wine, glasses variety of goodies and home made cookies plus a birthday present. If you are looking for the home of your dreams don't pass this one up it has everything you can dream of. The serenity of the location and so many areas to relax are incredible. You won't believe the trees on the property at night..

Incredible Property for our Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

We began visiting Tucson 4 years ago when our son started the University of Arizona. For his graduation we needed a place that could accommodate our entire family with multiple generations that were coming in from all over for the ceremony. What a wonderful find Casa Campana was. The property is gorgeous inside and out. The back yard is better then a 5 star resort and the house itself was the perfect place to relax and celebrate with our family. Mark and Susan truly have the gift of hospitality. From the moment we entered their home to find a gift tote stocked to get our vacation started and a Happy Mother's Day bouquet we knew we had found a special place. The kitchen is stocked better then my own home, and there is a huge grocery store just a few minutes away. We have never stayed at a house that was as nice or set up as well for guests. If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in the Tucson area this is the property. We will be returning. Thank your Mark and Susan for a magical vacation.

Owner's Response: We are glad that the Casa worked so well for your graduation celebration. When we created the backyard we tried to bring together things that we enjoy when we travel. The best part is that you don't have to wake up early to get the Bali bed or a good spot in the shade. We look forward to your return.

Outstanding! Attention to detail made our stay a "no-brainer" ... exactly what you want when away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights with extended family visiting our U of A daughter. We choose the house bc it could host all plus have room for any of our daughter's friends for the Easter holiday weekend. Every detail was beautifully thought out starting with the welcome basket with "treats" for all to instructions for everything from restaurants to appliances!

The house was beautifully decorated and supplied with games (board games as well as pool and ping pong) and movies hitting all tastes. Where we spent all of our time though was in the yard, by the pool, hot tub or taking shade in any number of seating areas. The landscaping was stunning and at night the solar lanterns in the surrounding trees were spectacular! Thanks Mark and Susan for a lovely couple of days!

Spring Breaks

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay and nicer people deal with. The house was well set up, clean, and prepared perfectly for us. The pool and hot tub were just as pictured and clean. Mark was great to deal with and easy to get a hold of. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for some fun Tucson. You will not be disappointed.

Case Campana is located in the Tortolita Mountains foothills at the northern part of the greater Tucson area and adjacent to the Dove Mountain resort community including the Dove Mountain, Gallery and Heritage golf clubs and Ritz Carlton resort.

Only a short drive away are major Tucson area attractions including Mount Lemmon, Biosphere2, The Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, University of Arizona, and many great area golf clubs. Other nearby popular pursuits include hot air ballooning, off-road excursions, and mountain and desert hiking. Dove Mountain, the former site of the Accenture Match Play World Golf Tournament is only minutes away.

Close enough for day trips from Casa Campana, historic Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, Tubac arts community, Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory, and the Arizona Wine Country are all popular visitor destinations.

Situated on a private lane of 3+ acre properties, Casa Campana itself affords a great Sonoran Desert experience including an abundance of desert plants/trees, cactus, birds (including mourning doves, night hawks, hummingbirds, ...) and desert animals such as javelinas, coyotes, and deer. The property's natural setting and privacy will be appreciated by all, but convenience is not sacrificed with restaurants, shopping and other services less than 5 minutes away.
