About Chip Augello

Northeast transplants for 16 years. Love the desert and can assist you in enjoying all that Tucson area has to offer.

Chip Augello purchased this house in 1998

Why Chip Augello chose Tucson

Leave the snow and cold weather behind and enjoy the enchantment of the most lush desert in the world, the Sonoran desert. Our property is a mixture of natural desert landscape and groomed low water use plants. There are walking trails around our lot, with connections to acres of desert and a 'wash'. The area is abundant with native animals. A great bird watching area. Gorgeous sunsets right out the front door.

What makes this house unique

Breath taking views of the Catalina, Tucson and Tortolita mountains. Very private.

A wonderfully secluded place with beautiful views.

The casita was well equipped, spacious, had a covered patio area with views of the mountains. It was private & yet close to all areas of Tucson. Chip & Cheryl were gracious & helpful hosts.

The owners were VERY flexible. We were in town to visit family. A bedroom at our marana house became available and some of our other family members were able to take our place at the casita so that I could be closer to help my father at his home in marana. Thanks you for being so amenable.

Nice place to stay; beautiful view from Patio

  • 5 of 5

Excellent landlords - very helpful and knowledgeable; great place for older adults wishing a quiet place away from city and with a desert for back yard. Maybe one of the best views of Catalina mountains including Mt Lemmon you can find in a rental. Sitting on patio, watching sun change the colors on mountain range in late afternoon was my favorite time there. I could go on and on but I don't want it to get booked up too fast for next year(: }
