The 2-person hammock can be wheeled onto the covered patio if you prefer shade or out onto the deck if you if you want to see the sun or the spectacular nighttime sky.

This is an incredible property! Tasteful, upscale furnishings and decor. The layout is amazing. 3 of us easily moved about the kitchen cooking. The outdoor area was literally an oasis! Putting green, bocce ball, pool and spa...so nice. The outdoor music system was wonderful! The bicycle in the garage a nice addition! The only problem is this sets the bar so high, it will be hard to find anything this nice to stay at! We are spoiled. The owners were really accomodating and went out of their way to make us comfortable....Sending the gardener back through to clear a few weeds that had come through the cement! ( we barely noticed!) A 10!
This home was well beyond our expectations!! The home was extremely comfortable as well as very clean and cozy. We spent 90% of the trip outside on the beautiful patio. The other 10% in the enormously wonderful kitchen!! Beautiful pool, spa, putting green, bocce court and fire pit made us never want to leave the house! The home is about 8 minutes from a very good grocery store and multiple restaurants and yummy coffee joints! The house is perfectly located as it is "rural" but 30-40 min from multiple state and national parks, the Pima Air and Space Museum, just over an hour from Mt. Lemmon and the various wineries south of Tucson. If your a birdwatcher you will love this house!! We saw a lot of variety and the beautiful acreage behind the house lent itself to seeing all sorts of animals and birds. The sunsets viewed from the house were spectacular!!!! This house is HIGHLY recommended!! After having stayed in "Homeaway rentals" all over the world, the 8 of us that stayed here for just over a week decided that this house was by far the most beautiful and comfortable!!!
We absolutely loved our week long stay here. We had 2 families, a total of 3 kids under age 12. This is a beautiful spot and I'm thinking of returning with a group for my dad's 80th birthday. We love the shaded outdoor spots. We ate every meal outside and enjoyed the couch/seating area. It's hard to judge the pool size in the photos but it was comfortable for our party size. There was only once that all 7 of us got in the pool at the same time but even then it was still space. The property was well stocked with paper towel, soaps, TP, etc which was very handy and helpful. There were also spices left, oils, paper goods, etc. We appreciated this very much. The master was enormous and the other room sizes were fine, not huge but plenty large enough to walk around.
This spot is pretty far north of the airport and main Tucson area. But Tucson is sprawling so anywhere you want to go is going to take about 20-30 minutes. The grocery is very close. We enjoyed the spa at the Ritz which is only 5-10 minutes away. WE took two short hikes close by as well.
The only (very minor) report we have is that the main TV is way to hard to operate. There are 5 remotes to get it going. And two of our adults who work in tech and have complicated TV set ups at home had trouble getting it to work. But again, minor, and we didn't watch much TV anyway. I would highly recommend this spot! Thank you so much!
We have taken many family vacations in Tucson but this is the first time in this area. We loved it and are planning to return next year. The property was outstanding. The home itself is spacious and well appointed. The kitchen, dining area and great room were very open which was a must for our family. The outdoor space was fantastic: large enough hot tub for our family, very nice pool with a waterfall, and the added features of a putting green and bocce ball court were a daily highlight. Being a techie I really appreciated the video and sound setup, especially the Pyle driver and 2 zone outdoor sound system - we spent a lot of hours in the pool and hot tub while streaming our favorite music. Of all the places we've stayed in Tucson my family liked this the best overall.
This is my family's second year that we vacationed at this property. In my review last year I commented about the immaculate condition of the home and yard, particularly the pool and spa which is fenced in so children can safely play in the yard without being tempted by the pool. This year I will concentrate on the setting of the home. The views of the mountains on three sides are spectacular. Sunsets in particular are stunning. I just wish this website permitted photos that I took from the property. The location is convenient for just about everything, shopping and grocery stores five minutes away, but yet very private. Highly recommended
Our two families were able to have a great stay, each having private quiet bedrooms and open welcoming common spaces with all the amenities. We listened to coyotes howl while watching the full moon rise as we soaked in the perfectly heated spa. The pool was just the right temperature for a refreshing dip. The stove and outdoor grill were easy to use and high end. We love to stay again in the future.
