Villa Saguaro
Tucson Arizona

In the Lap Of Luxury

  • 5 of 5
We have spent many weeks in Arizona over the years, and this is undoubtedly one of the most elegant homes we have ever stayed in. And truly it is a home rather than just a house, and on arriving one immediately feels part of a family who has spared no expense or labor refurbishing and caring for this historic, gorgeous home and grounds. The landscape, decor and furnishings in general were beyond compare. We are a three generation family and there was plenty to see and do for all of us, indoors and out. With weather in the mid-80's all week, what's not to like?! This was a vacation for the records!

We stayed at Villa Saguaro from December 27, 2013 to January 3, 2014 and loved it. We have 7 people in our family: my husband and I, 3 college-age kids, 1 high school-age kid, and 1 middle-school-age kid. We often travel to Tucson from Ohio to visit our daughter who attends the University of Arizona. We were first attracted to Villa Saguaro because it has enough beds for everyone. The house is very comfortable and is also nicely decorated and very well maintained. The house is every bit as beautiful as in the photos. We particularly loved the many balconies and the 2-story feature of the house, which seems to be rare in Tucson. The hot tub and the pool table were a big hit with the kids. We really appreciated the large flat-screen and Direct TV so that the guys in the family could watch all of the New Year's football bowl games. The location of the house is in the foothills, and we were a little concerned at first that it was too far from the University of Arizona, but we found that the 30-min drive was well worth it and very easy. The views of the mountains & foothills around the house are simply amazing. The house is in a very nice neighborhood, but you don't really see any neighbors because each property has 3 acres. The weather was sunny and 72 degrees every day, but take jackets/sweaters because it gets chilly at night. There is also a small lake and nature preserve 1 block from the house, which makes for a very nice walk. Villa Saguaro is our new favorite place to stay in Tucson and we would love to stay there for a month or two if we could. We had hoped to rent the house again in May when my daughter graduates but found that it was already booked. Hopefully we can find another time when it is available. We highly recommend this house. You'll never want to leave.

A Treasure in the Desert

  • 5 of 5
We are a retired couple and our kids and grandchildren come and visit. It is a perfect family home where everyone can get together and not feel cramped. Saguaro is a real treasure. This was our second year staying at the villa. Last year we were there for a month. This year we stayed for two months and have already booked it for next year. I can not say enough good things about the owner Wolfgang and Martina. We have stayed in many vacation rental houses. It is easy to separate a rental house from a home that the owner uses. This is truly a home that the owners have taken a great deal of pride in owning and renovating. Everything is immaculate and the furnishings fit the southwest feel. The house manager Karine is a delightful lady and makes sure the littlest detail is taken care of. Both Karine and Wolfgang are extremely quick to respond to emails. We did notice that one of the guest posted a UTube video of the house. It is listed under Villa Saguaro. I can't imagine that anyone would not enjoy Villa Saguaro.

Simply fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
In spite of a long journey from Germany I would recommend to live in Villa Saguaro to everyone.
The house offers a lot what invites you to relax: swimming pool, spa, pool billard, many terraces and balconies for enjoying the fantastic views, and - the silence as the villa is out of town and near to the national park. The main background noise was due to the large variety of animals living around ...
The furnishings of the house do not leave any of your wishes open and because of the excellent arranged kitchen and further instructions you get used to there very well.
In the 'kingsizebeds' you can feel yourself like a princess for one week.
Just try it yourself, and you will find you are still thinking of the brilliant Villa Saguaro with its great landlord Wolfgang and landlady Tina even weeks after you left.

First i want to say: Thank you for offering your wonderful house in this quiet and beautiful area.
We enjoyed our stay and feeled like beeing home. Often we used the pool billiard or were outside in the garden and looked in the desert with this amazing animals.

Next year we want to come back, because the last time in this area was one of the best trips we ever did !!!

Best regards, Katharina

Activity and Interests

The Neighborhood

Villa Saguaro is located in the quiet east of Tuscon, where the desert begins. In this part of the town properties have 3 acres or more, giving privacy to the people living here.

The house is close to the Saguaro Park East, the Agua Caliente Park and the Catalina Highway (which leads up to Mt. Lemon).

The desert

Living in Villa Saguaro means to be part of the desert - it is not an empty sand desert, but one with lots of plants and all kinds of animals. On top of all are the large cacti called Saguaros.


Visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum if you want to know everything about the desert and all its creatures.

The university and its neighorhood is also quite interesting, as well as the Pima Air & Space museum.

Shopping is great in Tucson with large malls and smaller shops around the university. Often you'll notice that you are close to Mexico.


A drive of 2 hours brings you to Phoenix and Scottsdale, with even higher shopping highlights. The majestic Grand Canyon in the north of Arizona can be reached in 5-6 hours.
