This house is a fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home, located on a hill-top with spectacular panoramic views of the city of Tucson and surrounding mountains. This Southwest ranch style home, located on a three acre site, is surrounded by the lush Arizona desert with many towering Saguaros. Wildlife is abundant, with daily visits from quail, cotton tails, ground squirrels, woodpeckers, and hawks. Coyotes, javalinas, deer and roadrunners can also be observed but not as often.
This is a private home on 3 acres bordering the Santa Catalina Natural Area. This 2,387 sq.ft. Southwest ranch designed home is beautifully built in the northeast Catalina Foothills near Mt. Lemmon with scenic views of sunsets and Tucson. Mt. Lemmon juts up 9,000 feet above sea level in the Santa Catalina Mountains north of our house. The journey to Mt. Lemmon begins with travels first through a saguaro desert , then into oak and pine covered mountains with spectacular rock formations. Soon you will reach Rose Canyon Lake, a trout fisherman's delight. Ski lifts are located in a small village, Summerhaven, at the top of Mt. Lemmon.
The open floor plan makes this home ideal for entertaining. The large covered patio area, pool, and hot tub are great for relaxing and enjoying the scenic views. There are two king beds and one queen size bed, and one of the king beds can be converted to two twins if needed. The home is ideal for golfers, bicyclists, hikers, runners, skiers and individuals who enjoy privacy with a spectacular view. It is also great for those wishing to escape cold winters. The Tucson climate is traditionally warm throughout the year and you will find that you can enjoy golf, tennis, hiking, and other outdoor activities year round
There are lots of great activities within 15 miles of the property. The area's best golf, bike paths, parks, restaurants, movie theaters, library, shopping, and various Farmer's markets are all nearby, as well as the Art & Music Festival held at various times of the year. The Accenture Match Play Golf Tournament is about a 34 minute drive, and the gem show is in January and February. Horseback riding rental in Catalina State Park, as well as nature viewing and hiking is right outside your door. There are many churches close by, the University of Arizona UMC hospital is 13 miles away, and Saguaro National Park is 9 miles. Other area attractions include the Pima Air & Space Museum, Reid Park Zoo, and Tuscon Botanical Gardens.

Fantastic views and outdoor living space
We loved our stay here---the house was as neat and clean as you could hope for and well equipped. We sat outside any spare moment we had and enjoyed the pool, hot tub, numerous birds and the spectacular sunsets and sunrises. We would definitely rent again.

Had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and very homey. We loved it and are already signed up for next year and plan to come as many years as possible. The pool and deck are beautiful, hot tub great, views AMAZING! Kevin and Jim were very nice to work with and the communications were excellent.
This was our second stay here and it was even better than the first one. It's just a terrific place and what you get for the price is incredible. We'll be back and the sooner the better.

Stunning sunsets above Tucson
Wonderful home with all the amenities one could hope for.
Perfect for us!
We chose this house because of the views and were not disappointed! The pictures that you see are true to the home. The owner, Jim, and Kevin, the contact person were very good to communicate with! Thank you so much for everything! We loved it!
Thanks for your review Jodi. Glad your family enjoyed the property. Would you believe we have to heat the pool in the summer time to keep the water above 85 degrees. Again, glad you had a good time. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Kindest Regards, Jim
AMAZING location but the property needs attention
The house has amazing mountain and desert views - absolutely perfect. The house needs attention however. Only one patio lounge chair, too many cobwebs and the master bedroom bed is in poor shape. With some TLC and a refresh, this could be much better.
