Milagrosa Hills House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

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.

Beautiful location and the home was gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience with this house. The house was clean and the property was well maintained. The house was exactly what we needed. We spent the days either on the golf course, the zoo, museums or at the mall and the able to come back to the house to swim was priceless. Also the ability to use the hot tub late at night or early in the morning was a great benefit. The house itself had everything we needed, from towels, to cooking materials as well as being able to wash our clothes. We literally felt like we were at home. We plan to rent this house again the next time we come to Tucson.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. We spent most of our time outside by the pool and loved the views. This is a very quiet neighborhood and the house had the right amount of space we wanted and was very clean. Although we live in Tucson, this short getaway felt like a nice vacation!

outside is beautiful, inside is large and roomy

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home perfectly situated on the side of a mountain that offers breathtaking views of the city. But you are far enough away from the city lights to see the milky way galaxy in the night sky. Talk about a blanket of stars!

The inside of the house is much larger than it appears in the pictures which was a very nice surprise. It's neat and has been updated in some ways, but would benefit from a professional interior designer to clean up some of the mistakes from the do it yourself renovations and improve the overall interior to match the exterior which is exceptional.

I would also recommend all white bedding and linens to give it that crisp, clean appearance like an upscale hotel. The colored linens leave something to be desired as you can't really sanitize them. I would also have the cleaning group iron the linens as wrinkled sheets are not inviting.

I am not nitpicking, as again it is a lovely home, but just think that if you followed the suggestions your home would truly be a statement both inside and out and you could charge considerably more than you do now.

FYI - I left a 26" flat screen as my son graduated and I did not want to ship it home.

wonderful visit! hope to come back again

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our 2 kids (ages 5 and 9) for a week and everyone loved it. Very comfortable, had all the things we needed in the kitchen and household (even provided laundry detergent and dishwasher soap). Pool and hot tub were very nice and the view is spectacular. Kevin was very responsive to a couple questions we had. We hope to come back again soon!

Wonderful, relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our week in this comfortable welcoming home. The privacy and view are amazing and the location fit right into our plans - from driving up Mount Lemmon, to horseback riding and hiking in Saguaro National Park, to visiting the Air and Space Museum, and laughing until it hurt at the Gaslight Theater. The location was convenient for our day trips to Bisbee and Tombstone, to be awed at the Titan Missile Museum, and to explore Katchner Caverns. Keith and Terry were great to work with. Our only problem was that the pool never really warmed up. There had been a problem with the electrical connection so we weren't really sure if that was the problem or just the cold nights that made it hard to keep it warm. It wasn't a big issue for us as the hot tub was always perfect! We would definitely rent this house again if we are in the Tucson area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. Yes cold nights and heated outdoor pools have a problem staying warm. We feel that our location is the best in the area. We continue to make improvements every summer. Our plans for next summer is a new concrete driveway and a nice entrance to the property. Thanks again for your review and thank you for your business. Looking forward to your return. Terry
