If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place, away from the main drag, we highly recommend staying here. Well-appointed spacious casita in very pleasant surroundings. Owner cares, and it shows!
( Please note that the final part of the drive is on a bumpy dirt road - so if you are looking for a place to stay where you come and go repeatedly throughout the day, this would not be ideal)
This was a perfect place to stay. It was quiet, beautiful and we had everything we needed. Carol and Ben were great hosts. We went on hikes right from the property and spent lots of time by the pool area. We had a very relaxing vacation, I only wish it was longer than 8 days.

Great hiking a short walk away
We spent 2 weeks at the casita and enjoyed it immensely. The furnishings and decorations are comfortable and well-suited to the environment. The yard is active with birds and rabbits. The night sky is full of stars. Send a text to Carol and the hot tub will be ready by the time you return from your day's activities.
Our interests were hiking, biking, and pickleball.
We drove to a number of places to hike, but it's most convenient to just walk down the road a block or two to the marvelous trail system between the casita and the mountains. We felt like we had it to ourselves. Towering saguaros. Beguiling boulders. Some of the trails are also used by mountain bikers, but we only encountered 2 during our 3 hikes back there.
We did some road biking. In one case, we took the bikes to the Basha's parking lot then rode the highway 77 shoulder up to Biosphere 2 about 13 miles away. Another time, we took the bikes to the Cañada del Oro bike trail. It's one of many paved trails in Oro Valley. We also took the bikes to The Loop around Tucson and spent a day on that ride.
The closest public pickleball place we found was at the Oro Valley Community Center. A good group plays most mornings 9-11:30 AM. A day pass grants access to the entire center, which includes weights, machines, and a swimming pool.
The closest supermarket is Basha's 2-3 miles away. There's also a gas station and some restaurants in the same location. The last 1.5 miles to the casita is a dirt road. We had a minivan but were able to traverse the road without a problem, although we were surprised by cattle, deer, and coyote on the road at times.
Carol and Ben are very accommodating hosts and took care of all of our requests cheerfully. We were very fortunate to find this hidden gem and hope your experience here matches ours.
My husband and I spent a few weeks at the casita in March and it was wonderful! The casita is so clean, cozy, comfortable, well decorated, well stocked. Perfect! Sitting in the yard is such a treat, beautiful mountain views, and visits from bunnies, and all sorts of birds, surrounded by native cacti and flowers. A short walk to the hiking trails at the base of the Catalinas, beautiful big boulders to climb on as you walk in the footsteps of the ancient Hohokam. Carol and Ben are the best! So nice, fun, accommodating! We miss you! Wonderful stay! Highly recommend!
Great three peat
This was our third February at Cloud Nine and we had a good time. Weather was not the greatest but we got to see the mountains and yard in a different way-clouds, rain and 5 inches of snow! The grounds were beautiful in the snow and Carol came over with some great home made soup to help us through the weather (the snow was gone by the next afternoon). Can see the wild life close up. Besides birds and rabbits and cattle, I saw a javelina and a bobcat. Wonderful getaway.
Comfortable and beautiful
I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful property and owners.
