Sonoran Oasis - Custom Southwest Home Exudes Arizona Indoor/Outdoor Living
Mark & Susan
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 Tucson
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!

The property and the owner are both amazing. As soon as we arrived we felt as if we were at a private resort. the backyard has many different sitting areas and we often thought.... where will be hang out today.
We loved out time in Tucson as well. There were many different things to do.
Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home!!

We love having so many outdoor seating areas to choose from. We designed them so that there would always be some shade to be found, and without the need to wake up at the crack of dawn to reserve a spot. It's also nice to be able to take a break and find a quiet place to read when there's a larger group. Thank you for choosing Casa Campana for your Tucson vacation. We hope to have you back again.
Review for Casa Campana
We just spent 10 days at this beautiful property and didn’t want to leave. The home and surroundings are gorgeous. Mark and Susan have done an incredible job in providing everything you could want and enjoy during your stay. We spent every afternoon around the fabulous pool. There is plenty of covered seating for those that want to be in the shade. If you are looking for a peaceful stay in the desert .. you cannot find another perfect place.
Yes, we know exactly what you mean. It’s definitely hard to leave the property - even for us. We’re pleased everything you needed was provided, including the shade. We’ve made sure there are spaces for everyone to be comfortable, whether seeking sun, shade, conversation, solitude, or even an afternoon nap.
Thanks for your wonderful review. Hope we have the opportunity to host you again in the future.
Everything we hoped for:) beautiful desert evironment and perfectly appointed loving home..
Perfect in every way.. thank you!!!!
We are pleased that you found our home perfectly appointed. We stay their frequently ourselves and as such we strive to make sure it has everything that we need when we gather with our own family and friends. Casa Campana has been a true labor of love for us and it is very rewarding that our house continues to please our guests. We hope that you can stay with us again.
Stunning in all ways
Believe everything you read about this property and the owners are the best. It is the most amazing rental property we have ever stayed in and we have rented quite a few !
As a super bonus for us foodie types the kitchen was very, very well equipped and fun to cook in in every way. If you ever can bring yourself to leave the gorgeous compound grocery and fabulous hiking are only minutes away. This is the place for a special family get together with lots of communal and private spaces along with the peace and tranquility of the beautiful Sonoran desert, You can look and look but you won't find better than the Casa Campana.
A very special place!
Our family wanted to return to Casa Campana because it was such a wonderful experience last year. We felt like we were returning to a second home and enjoyed the comfortable home, beautiful outdoor living areas and surroundings as much as the first visit. Mark and Susan go above and beyond to make your stay as memorable and pleasing as possible. Communication is prompt and thorough which was much appreciated. Hands down, this was again one of the best rental experiences that any of us have had. Thanks so much Mark and Susan and, did I mention that we would like to buy shares in the place?!
Thanks so much for your glowing feedback and joining our beloved group of returning guests. We’re happy the Casa consistently delivers a wonderful, relaxing experience for your family, and you all feel at home. That’s our goal for each and every group, so it’s nice to hear. We look forward to welcoming you back next time.
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.
