vacation rental description

Imagine yourself in this spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright-style home,
nestled in the open desert in the Central Catalina Foothills.
Breath-taking views of the mountains are available from virtually
every room. A sunken living room with huge windows offers comfortable
furnishings for groups, and the brand-new dining room easily
accommodates 12 people. The separate guest house/casita offers
extra privacy for the occupants.

The entire house is constructed of burnt adobe brick, which offers a
rustic warmth and charm blended with all the modern conveniences. The
adobe maintains a comfortable interior temperature in all seasons.

Surrounded by palm trees, this "Sanctuary in the Desert" has the
feeling of staying in your very own private resort.

The Kitchen has been renovated in 2010, with brand new stainless steel appliances and a large island that provides seating.  It is fully stocked for gourmet cooking: All-Clad pots and pans, food processor, blender, waffle iron, pasta pot, spices and seasonings, all utensils, etc.

Extensive covered ramadas and patios--all executed in the style of
Frank Lloyd Wright--surround the house and Casita, offering
opportunity for outside entertaining, viewing the gorgeous desert
sunsets, watching the birds, and communing with the desert. The ramadas have been newly furnished with modern all-weather wicker for comfort and versatility.

The backyard features a pathway through private cactus and succulent specimen garden located on over an acre of open desert.

The pool and spa face the mountain, and the walled-in sun deck offers
ultimate privacy.

Four spacious bedrooms sleep 8 comfortably:

Master BR #1 in the main house has a King size bed, but the mattresses
can be pulled apart to sleep 2 separately.

Master BR #2 in the main house features a Queen size bed.

Guest Room/Den in the main house has a Single size sleeper sofa with a
foam mattress topper.

The separate Guest House/Casita has a King size Tempur-pedic mattress.

All 4 open and spacious Bathrooms offer showers, 2 with tubs.

The central location of the house, near Campbell Avenue and Skyline
Drive, makes access to upscale La Encantada Shopping Center and all of
the City of Tucson very convenient. Quality restaurants are literally
minutes away in every direction. AJ's supermarket, Trader Joes, and
Safeway are within minutes, also. Hiking trails can be reached in
minutes by car. The Tucson International Airport is 30 minutes away
by car. Phoenix and Sky Harbor Airport are 100 miles/90 minutes by car.

Amazing Tucson Vacation Rental

Review submitted: September 10, 2012   Date of arrival: April 15, 2012

We experienced 9 nights in this fabulous family home tucked in the foothills. The home sits in a community of other homes, but has total privacy and we felt very comfortable and relaxed the entire time. We had our adult children and grandchild join us for part of this vacation and the home was the perfect setting for all of us to chill by the pool, barbeque out on the grill, or just sit in the shade and read. Every appliance was top of the line, worked just fine...there really wasn't anything that we felt we needed that wasn't already there in the home.
Our favorite part of the house were all the intimate outdoor sitting spaces, many shaded. The blooming succulent garden in the back was a special treat to see. If I'd change anything for the next time we visit, it would be to pack less clothes; there are 2 washers and dryers on the property! Also, there's a fabulous specialty grocery store walking distance that makes life very easy!!
ps: I love being in my own home, but this house was immaculate (very important to me) and easier than being home!

Desert Luxury and Drama

Review submitted: September 10, 2012   Date of arrival: January 3, 2012

This exquisite, artistic home maximizes the beauty and drama of the Sonoran desert. From the large windows inside or the lovely outside living spaces, exquisite sunsets and fascinating wildlife can be observed. The amenities, such as private bedrooms and casita, swimming pool, and large dining and living rooms for entertaining afford guests the ultimate in luxury while feeling relaxed and at home. The location on the north side of Tucson is perfect for the cycling and golf my husband and I enjoy. Hiking trails are close by in Pima and Sabino Canyons. We hope to return to this home regularly.
