Beautiful home, clean and well kept. Traveled with family (11yr. and 2-13yrs). Very relaxing,backyard was breath taking. If you have the time would recommend going to Mesa and do the salt river, bring water proof camera for pictures. It was amazing! Went horse back riding at Houston's not far from home they were great!

Wonderful desert retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six adults and six children gathered to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary at the Hacienda del Mayar. This lovely home and the adjoining casita provided plenty of room for all of us. The pool and hot tub were most refreshing after a day of sight-seeing. The mountain views and the birds and wildlife were wonderful. There was every amenity provided and we were most comfortable. Karine is a joy to work with. She answers questions promptly and is always helpful. A very nice person. I would recommend the Hacienda del Mayar to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, quiet place to enjoy some time in the Tucson area.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
This was our first vacation rental experience, and it couldn't have been better. The owner Karine was very organized and took care of all the details perfectly. The house was so beautiful, we loved it. It had everything we could need, including pantry items, a cooler for our use for day trips, pool towels and toys for the kids. She even had a crock pot! The house was very clean, the beds and the linens soft and comfy. Karine left us flowers upon our arrival and notes explaining how things worked in the house. There are 4 bedrooms (well 3 plus an office we used as a bedroom for our baby crib) and every room had it's own bathroom. The house was so big I kept losing my kids in it, ha, ha! It was also soundproof, so the rooms were very quiet. No disturbed sleep with kids talking in their sleep or even hearing the TV from the living room. I slept the best there than I had in awhile. Also, the master bedroom is super nice in the morning with the sun coming in all the windows and the terrace. If I lived there, I would turn into a morning person for sure! We were there at the end of April, and it was 85-90 outside but I don't think the air conditioning even came on. Maybe once or twice. This is a VERY comfortable house. It is also 5 min down the street from Saguaro National Park, which is a great place to visit. We took a walk with a ranger, and it was most educational about the desert. One note: Our first day there, we did find a rattlesnake in the backyard despite the snake fence. It snuck in somehow. My husband came within 2 feet of stepping on it. If you have kids, don't trust the snake fence to keep them out. We expected it, this is the desert after all. Karine has since taken care of it. She was very helpful and responsive when we called about it. If we come back to Tucson, this is my first choice place to stay. Thanks Karine for a great stay!

Trilogy Training Camp

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect spot for a group of triathletes! Rented both the Hacienda and the Casita but used the casita mainly as sleeping quarters because there was enough room in the main house for all of us to eat together. Beautiful quiet trails right off the house for an early morning short run before heading out on our bikes on the east side of Tuscon. We were very happy with the garage because it gave us a great and safe home for our nice bikes. It also kept the bike grease and stinky bike shoes away from the house!! The mandatory naps and recoveries after long bikes were perfect by the swimming pool! The kitchen had everything starving triathletes needed to make some hearty meals. The house was clean, main area very large, the beds were comfy and we had plenty of washrooms. Had a bit of a problem with the shower at the Casita but got a quick reply from Karine when we let her know. Our evenings sitting by the pool after supper were perfect! So quiet, other than for the wildlife which was awesome (cause there were no snakes...) and of course, a few laughter from us! none of us wanted to leave, we wanted to move there permanently! Thanks Karine and Jean-Michel for offering this opportunity to rent such a beautiful place.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
The location of the rental was perfect for me, near Saguaro National Park and many miles of hiking trails. The Casita' was clean and very well mantained. The directions provided by the owners were very easy to follow. The owners were very accommodating and helpful with all our neads. I would highly recomend this rental for anyone who wants to experience what it is like to live in or around the beautiful Sonoran Desert.

slice of heaven away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was our second return trip to the casita del mayar. Because of the quietness, beautiful sunsets,entertainment from various wildlife(our favorite is always the quails)and closeness to many interesting museums, parks,hiking trails, etc. we just had to come back again. We are already planning on our third trip back in two years!!!! Karine, the owner/hostess, is a most informative, accommodating person who makes one feel right at home immediately. The casita itself is not=wanting of anything. What a blessing it is to have access to a washer/dryer! The back patio was our refuge for early morning coffee as we viewed the sunrise while the front patio was out mainstay for enjoying breakfast and the cottontails, quails,cactus wren and woodpeckers. The property is well-cared for and offers complete relaxation. It definitely is a slice of home when not at home!!!!

wildlife/scenery heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the casita del mayar in Tucson. WE returned to this property because of the beautiful sunsets, entertaining wildlife (quails,coyotes, cottontails and many species of birds, comfortable accommodations complete with everything one would need, and a most gracious hostess, Karine. The casita is close enough to town to indulge in various styles of restaurants and close to many interesting, informative places for field trips. Because we are beyond age for extensive hiking, we love this place for complete rest and relaxation. For our morning coffee and sunrise, we enjoyed the back patio while the front patio was our mainstay for breakfast and wildlife entertainment. Yes, we plan to return again in two years. Can't wait!
