About Brent Pichler

Owners have lived on this property for 14 years. There are 2 guest houses sitting on their own parcel which have been used for famlily and guests over the years. The property has been completely renovated, capturing the essence of Tucson foothills living. Owners are business owner and physician who love home and want to share their piece of heaven for those looking for a retreat from life.

Brent Pichler purchased this Bungalow in 1998

Why Brent Pichler chose Catalina Foothills

Our home was one of the original properties built in the Catalina Foothills. Stars such as Elizabeth Taylor looked at this home and considered it as one of her many possible locations. It is situated at the end of FingerRock wash, with the main house sitting on a 35' cliff. It was known as Owl Cliff because of the many owls that have taken up residency here over the years. The property was also equestrian property as is the surrounding area. There are hiking/mountain biking trails just outside of your front door.

What makes this Bungalow unique

While quietly secluded from the main day to day activities of city living, our residence is within 5 minutes from some of the most exclusive Tucson shopping plazas, restaurants and resorts. We loved having access to Sabino Canyon, Fingerrock trails to hike, venture and just enjoy a day outside in the beautiful Tucson climate. ***We have another bungalow for rent through VRBO #622166.

                                                              Thanks so much for your comments and review. I shared your story about your dog rescue nonprofit and look forward to hearing your NPR interview. Let me know when you will be featured. Thanks, Brent Pichler.

                                                              Quiet, private, good location and the bungalow had character. Beautiful landscaping.

                                                              robert n.

                                                              Would rent again. Pets are welcome and hiking nearby.

                                                              The Perfect Bungalow!

                                                              The bungalow was the perfect size for me and the pups. It was well appointed, updated and beautiful. The view was incredible...nothing like sitting next to the fire pit with a glass of wine overlooking the Catalina Mountains. Easy access and Brent was the perfect host...responsive and available, if needed, but respected our privacy. Would absolutely stay here again next time through Tucson!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks Liz for the kind review. You also were the perfect guest along with your sweet puppies!! Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you in the future!

                                                              Brent Pichler

                                                              Excellent accommodations, Excellent hospitality

                                                              The Casita is equipped with everything necessary for a couple to stay for weeks. Location is terrific - within 2 miles of shops, gyms or parks yet you feel totally unplugged once on the property. But here's the best part: Brent, the property owner & host, was super responsive and friendly even to the smallest request. The place and the owner are true gems.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you both for such a nice review! We look forward to your quick return to Tucson. You are welcome anytime! Brent and Fran.

                                                              Quiet, setting in the desert

                                                              Carter K.Bloomington, IL

                                                              We enjoyed our stay in the desert of Tucson. Beautiful views of mountains and the desert wash right outside our door and yet we were in the city limits. Very quiet area with everything we needed. Restaurants and grocery stores within an easy drive. Lovely patio.

                                                              Amazing little spot in the Foothills

                                                              Marla A.Texas

                                                              Felt very lucky to find this casita in Fleche Caida, our favorite foothills neighborhood. Besides a very large main house, there are two rentals on the 3-acre property, right next to one another, but we had total privacy, as they face opposite directions and have separate parking areas. The porch and gas fire pit are really the heart and soul of the casita, and the view of the arroyo below and the nearby Catalinas is absolutely lovely. Casita is small but has most everything you need, including a full and well equipped kitchen, and the owner could not have been easier to work with. We only saw him on the property once (they weren't currently staying in the main house), but he was always available by a quick text. There is only a shower (wonderful walk-in, pebble floored) and a small kitchen bar at which to eat, which were the only drawbacks for me, as I like a bathtub and would have enjoyed even an outdoor dining table option. But total peace and quiet, and ten minutes to shopping/groceries, etc.
