About the property

Town home, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 4

Relax and unwind at this cozy patio home nestled in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains. Located on the 2nd hole of the Pusch Ridge Golf Course, this 2 bedroom home has spectacular mountain views offering stunning sunrises and sunsets. Enjoy your coffee or nestle close to the fire pit during chilly nights while relaxing on the private patio. This home is only steps away from the many amenities of the El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Shop, which is now operated by the city of Oro Valley. This location is also ideal for nature lovers of all kinds. Take a walk in the neighborhood or hike in the nearby Catalina State Park. Visit the beautiful Tohono Chul Botanical Gardens or take a drive further north to the University of Arizona Biosphere 2, or south to the Arizona Desert Museum.

The new Oro Valley Aquatic Center is less than five minutes away, and provides fun for the entire family during those hot summer months. The newly opened Camp Bow Wow provides pet daycare for those traveling with pets who may take a short trip or excursion where pets are not permitted. Tucson has something to offer everyone.

This El Conquistador town home offers you the opportunity to experience Tucson in a neighborhood environment while being only steps away from RESORT amenities. The southwestern decor of this lovely home adds to its charm. We look forward to sharing our home with you soon! If you have any questions email or call 504 487-9468.

About Karen Balamane

My husband and I met at the University of Arizona where I was studying education and he was studying chemical engineering. We have since moved to New Orleans, but have never gotten Arizona out of our blood. We have many family members who remain in the Tucson area, and we visit often. It's nice to have a place of our own to entertain family and friends when we have a chance to come out this way.

Why Karen Balamane chose El Conquistador

We stayed at the El Conquistador one year, and thought this would be the perfect home away from home for us. We chose to keep the Arizona decor because it is so different from our New Orleans decor....and when we travel to Tucson, we want to experience the 'feel' of Tucson. The rich, vibrant colors and southwestern art capture this for us. We hope you appreciate the charm of this home as much as we do. We look forward to sharing it with you and hearing about your stay in Tucson.

What makes this townhome unique

When we walked into this property, we were drawn to the back where three sets of sliding glass doors and large windows give you a breathtaking view of Pusch Ridge and the golf course fairway. My jaw must have dropped. I was sold immediately. The fact that this property is located inside the El Conquistador resort was icing on the cake.

A virtually perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but praise for this fabulous home away from the nor'easters that we would have experienced otherwise. The space was great, including a large 2nd bedroom. All of the appliances worked well (we have heard from friends renting elsewhere that this is not always the case). The serenity of sitting on the patio and looking at golf course + mountains + hummingbirds could not be beat. Plus, the house is decorated with amazing wall hangings. All the shopping one could want is within a mile or so, and it is only a short bicycle ride to access to The Loop -- a nicely paved path that encircles the city of Tucson. We will most definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: We are SO happy that you were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and take advantage of the shopping and amazing bike path! There is so much to do in Tucson and the area explodes with color and blossoms in spring. We can't wait to have you back!

Wonderful home! Spacious, comfortable, and decorated to be more like home than rental.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! The views, the comfort, and the location made it a PRIME experience for us. We were close to our favorite restaurants, shipping, and golf. The amenities in this home were outstanding, and we felt very comfortable here. Hated to leave! Highly recommend this beautiful property! Also a stargazer's delight. Hope to return to this gorgeous home away from home.

Great vacation home in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This Oro Valley gem was a terrific place to spend time in the Catalina Mtns. The home is attractive, clean, comfortable, nicely laid out, and well stocked with everything (kitchen goods, bar ware, linens and sheets, as well as games and books). There is a shaded, spacious patio, which makes a great addition to the living space. We had meals outdoors and enjoyed the many birds, and grapefruit and oranges from the trees.

The neighborhood is friendly and good for walking. The southern Oro Valley location is ideal. El Conquistador is close to shopping (Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Safeway) and many restaurants. There's also easy access to the bike path and numerous hiking trails. A great plus is the Oro Valley Community Center, which makes its facilities available to all -- so if golf, swimming and tennis interest you, it's close by and the rates are very reasonable. We also took advantage of the Oro Valley Library.

The hosts, Karen and Cherif, were a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful and thoughtful. We will be back!

Our Favorite!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve been renting many vacation rentals recently because we are relocating. We are a bit fussy and particular, and this was definitely our favorite rental. This is the first review we’ve written about a rental and it deserves one. Karen, the owner, is extremely easy to work with, very nice and responsive. Her place is clean, comfortable, and we didn’t want to leave. We were hoping her tenants after us had to cancel so we could extend our stay. My husband is quite the cook and said this was the best equipped kitchen he’s ever seen in a rental. That’s quite a compliment! We made a full Christmas dinner here. We really liked that everything was labeled so it was easy to find things. This owner realizes that you may not be familiar with her place. This rental is the perfect mix of feeling as if everything is there just for you, but knowing the owner comes frequently to check in and make sure everything is ok. It’s hard to find that balance in a rental and this one does it. It was great to have the desk to use as a workspace in the second bedroom. As a tennis fan, I was overjoyed to be able to watch the Tennis Channel! When we arrived there new high-quality towels. There are plenty of kitchen, bathroom and cleaning supplies. There are some books and games which is nice to have. It’s the little extras that make this rental stand out. This rental does not cut corners and really does feel like a home. The location is fantastic. I’m sure I’m leaving out other positives about this place because there are so many. We only wish we could have stayed until we relocate permanently! Thanks to the owners for everything.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, it's guests like you and Jeff that make the VRBO experience a PLUS for us. Our home felt your "love" and care during your stay. My husband is a soccer fan, so we do keep the sports channels available to our guests. The winter months are full of playoff and championship games in a variety of sports, so we do feel having a premium cable package is a must. So glad you got to use the kitchen! I love to cook , so I do try to keep the necessary items available for preparing meals for family and friends. There are MANY of amazing restaurants in the area, but sometimes you just want a home cooked meal! I am wishing you the best in your relocation, and hoping that one day we might be neighbors! Welcome to Tucson! May you have many happy years here!

Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience and we loved it. The home is filled with everything you need. The location is fantastic, close to many great stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Sprouts. This area does not feel congested at all. We were there to look for a second home and to feel the vibe in Oro Valley. This home was a wonderful retreat after many long days of house hunting. I especially loved the shower in the master bath and the towels they supply are not thin and junky!!! Bravo Karen!!!

Beautiful Views and Exceptionally Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this comfortable Oro Valley home. The location was convenient to shopping, bike paths and hotel accommodations for out of town guests. (Note: the El Conquistador Hotel is undergoing renovation at this time, but remains open.) The home itself is very comfortable as the rooms are large. The master bed is soft and relaxing and the queen mattress in the guest room was rated quite highly by our guest of a week. The kitchen, though small, was easy to use with several cooks and it was exceptionally well stocked with cookware and dishes. The patio was comfortable with beautiful views of the mountains and the orange and grapefruit trees were amazing in their bountiful fruits with their just-off-the-tree freshness. The home is an older one and the owners have worked hard to continue to update and improve the contents (brand new dishwasher, for example!). The bathrooms still need updating and I considered taking off a star, but the owners are so helpful, everything works well, and we were very comfortable there, so I gave it a 5.
