This property is beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is very comfortable and lovely. Lori has maintained it very well. The surroundings are beautiful and every thing function as it should. The bathrooms were clean with cozy towels and there was a view of the Tucson area from every window. I would recommend this property to anyone without ADA needs. It is not conducive for someone who has trouble with stairs. I would and did give it 5 *****!

Perfect Tucson Getaway

The house is just fabulous, and the location perfect for us, as we were on a buying trip to the Gem Show. Definately would stay here again.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Pictures are awesome, but the property is pretty dated without proper upkeep. Stairs are very awkward, not even close to code, and well, just dangerous. One of my guests fell twice. Water in downstairs bathroom has a fowl smell and I hasn’t been updated sine the 70s.

Views match the pictures, very pretty.

Owner's Response: Sorry your friend had trouble with the stairs. We haven't had that problem before. The home was built in 1980 and remodeled completely in 2002 in traditional Mexican style and passed code inspections. We have never had any comments about the water or the stairs being dangerous. I'm sorry the rustic style did not meet your expectations.

The perfect serene getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very comfortable in this beautiful home. It is spacious and has art galore! The views were breathtaking from the balconies and we spent a lot of time in the pool and bbqing. We all slept well in the comfy beds and enjoyed the open layout in the family room. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We would love to stay here again.

Our family stay a weekend for our sons Graduation ceremony for the university of Arizona this May.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed to have a small party for our son! The pool and Jacussi made it extra nice for everyone to have a good time! I would stay at that home next year for our middle son who will also be graduating from the U of A. The owner was very helpful and quickly answer all of my questions! Excellent home!

About Lori Lippman

We are long-time Tucson residents who love Tucson and love our home in the Catalina Foothills.

Lori Lippman purchased this house in 1997

Why Lori Lippman chose La Buena Vida Estates

We adore privacy. It's the Southwest, land of the infamous outlaws. What we have here is space. We have beauty and privacy. Our home brings us a personal kind of Peace. It's what we love about it.

What makes this house unique

Privacy above all. You are surrounded by the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert when you're at the Pueblo house. You can have the entire 3000+ sq. ft. space to yourself or share travel time with friends. The split-level, open-spaced, high-ceiling design gives beauty and privacy even within the interior of the home. Art is abundant throughout the home. There are also multiple levels of outdoor living. Pool (unheated in winter) and BBQ area has stunning views as do the 2 balconies off of Master Bedroom Suite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love the quiet, serene privacy and the continuous views of the Catalina Mountains and the city below. We were within 20 minutes of everything we wanted to do while we were here. The beds are really comfortable. We went to DeGrazia's Gallery in the Sun which was a big surprise. Then we went to the theater down by the university. Our last Sunday we went up to Finger Rock on Mr. Lemon and took amazing pictures. Just loved the house. Felt like home.
