Women's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Five of us came out for 7 days of the Tucson Gem show in early February. The house was located far enough away from downtown that we could get away from the frenzy and relax but was close enough we did not miss a thing! Melissa was a great host and the house had everything we needed. The location was very convenient to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping!

Great Property and Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this property to attend a my mother's memorial services. Our expectations were exceeded. Judy and Melissa were very responsive and helpful through out the entire process. There was a quick response time to our many questions and messages. They also left us a nice welcome gift and expressed sympathy for our loss. The house was perfect for the 7 of us. It was very spacious, clean and convenient. It's a great property with lots of amenities. My nieces and nephews enjoyed the fire pit and jacuzzi. This was the first time I ever rented a house and it will not be my last because this was such a great experience. Thanks again to Judy & Melissa - you are fabulous. We are grateful! I highly recommend staying at this home!!!!! :-)

A Great Place For Our Group!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for our group. We had everything we needed and I mean everything! We loved the jacuzzi at night under the stars and the fire pit with seating. We grilled, sat under the string lights at night and just had fun. The beds were all very comfortable and we enjoyed hanging out on the big sectional in the living room watching TV. I never made it down to the community pool but the kids said it was great, just a one block over. The location was great for golfing, close to some good restaurants (we loved Harvest in Oro Valley, 10 minutes away). We had trouble with heating the jacuzzi and we called Melissa, the property manager, and she came and showed us what we were doing wrong in like 20 minutes! Definitely a great value and a quality place. We will be back.

Great roomy home in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and decorated nicely. The photos represent the property well. This is a great choice for a group when you are attending an event at Tucson National Resorts as it is only a few minutes drive. We really enjoyed the back yard area. Plenty of seats and shaded area with trees.

Melissa was a great host. Very nice to work with. We will stay again on our next visit

Great stay in Tucson

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time and experience staying in Tucson and the house we rented was exactly what we needed. We had a large group, 7 adults and late in our stay added 2 mature children. The house was clean, comfortable, and had a very homey feeling. If we go to Tucson again we will definitely look up Melissa as she was very nice. so easy to work with, and welcoming to us. The price was right and we made a super choice!
