About the Owner

We are John and Jeanne, a couple just entering retirement and transitioning from our current home in Portland, Oregon to Tucson. We purchased "Saguaro House" to be our eventual full time home. For now we are eager to share the beauty and serenity of this lovely home with others who also find Tucson attractive. Beware, you might fall in love as we did.

John is retiring from a career in environmental science. Jeanne had a career in journalism, advertising and the hospitality industry. We have lived in the Midwest, the Northwest and now the Southwest and worked in the Northeast and Southeast. They all have their charm, but none can match the beauty of the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.

Saguaro House was Lovely

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed having breakfast, looking at the striking mountain view from both the kitchen and the outside patio area. All of the quails with their babies, bunnies, birds, and other "critters" entertained us! The cooking amenities/utilities were plentiful & the bedrooms/bathrooms were clean & comfortable. We were in town to look at retirement property, and had many appointments, so this was an excellent location to get everywhere quickly. The grocery stores and restaurants were also close by. Thank you John & Jean!

Comfortable home with spectacular mountain views

  • 5 of 5

Saquero House filled all our needs for a relaxing month in Tucson. The location is near many attractions, shopping, cultural activities and hiking venues. The wash behind the property is a handy place for daily walks. We enjoyed the fireplace on cold January evenings and the private patio on warm afternoons. We appreciated access to the golf course and pool. The kitchen is well equipped so we cooked most meals in. The owners offer many CDs, DVDs and tapes that we enjoyed during our stay. Communication with John was easy and access to the property convenient.

Location

From the Owner

"Saguaro House" is unique with its native Saguaro wood and open timber ceilings. It feels like a Northwest Lodge with Southwest charm. The abundant wildlife and native vegetation was the second thing that grabbed us. And the breathtaking views of the Catalina Mountains from the main living, dining and covered patio areas. Finally, it is really quiet. You can hear the doves, quail and coyotes undisturbed by city noise. Just meandering around Omni Tucson's 650 acres lowers your blood pressure. Tucson is a cycling city and miles of bike paths are connected directly behind Saguaro House. As a former golfer, John appreciates the beauty, open space and challenge of the adjoining golf links. As an artistic gardener, Jeanne loves the special qualities of southwest architecture and native landscapes. We both love hiking and birdwatching and there are fine restaurants, museums, shopping and cultural events less than 20 minutes away.

BIRDS and WILDLIFE: Tucson is an international destination for birdwatchers. 212 species of birds have been recorded on the Tucson Annual Bird Count. Arizona has recorded 577 bird species which represents 70% of the North American bird fauna. 15 species of hummingbirds migrate here in the spring and mid-simmer. Three nearby gardens: Tohono Chul Park, Tucson Botanical Gardens and the Arizona Desert Museum provide guided bird, plant and wildlife tours. Saguaro National Park is also a mecca for hikers and wildlife enthusiasts and is 25 minutes away.

SAGUARO HOUSE is located in a green belt of trees, ponds and the Santa Cruz Wash trail creating an oasis to watch birds and wildlife. Quail, dove, hawks and hummingbirds are visible most days from the patio. Coyotes sing you to sleep some nights. Native Sonoran Desert habitat begins at the edge of the patio.

ASTRONOMY: 300 days of sunshine and clear skies are not only pleasant, but create the best night sky viewing in the continental US. There are three stargazing destinations here: University of Arizona Planetarium and Telescope; Mt. Lemon Observatory, and the Kitt Peak Observatory.

HISTORY: This region was settled in the 15th Century by the Spanish who established a series of Mission. The most famous, San Xavier del Bac is in Tucson. Others are less than one hour drive. These settlements were initially welcomed by native Tohono O’ Odham tribes. The historic remnants are now National Historic monuments run by the National Park Service and other agencies. The final battle of the Civil War was fought at Picacho Peak which is visible from Tucson and is a destination for hiking and wildflowers as well.

MUSEUMS: Three major museums in Tucson are “must sees” for both Art and History. The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is a living museum with hundreds of live animal and plant exhibits, lectures, walking trails, docent-led tours. It is a protected natural area that abuts Saguaro National Park. The National Park is also a must see place!

TRIBAL LANDS: Finally if time permits, a trip to Sells, Arizona and the nearby Tohono O’ Odham Museum is worth the 50 minute drive, especially if combined with a visit to the Desert Oasis Cafe and Native Gift Shop. There you can sample many native foods tastefully prepared at a very reasonable price and browse true native art in the adjacent gift shop. On the drive out there are great views of Kitt Peak and unique desert habitat, home to Cara Cara, an eagle size bird with black and white wings native to Mexico.

Amenities

From the Owner

We know of no other place that offers natural peace and tranquility with all the benefits of city living minutes away. We hope to share our place with folks who might be attracted here for similar reasons including: BIRDS and WILDLIFE: Tucson is an international destination for birdwatchers: 212 species of birds have been recorded on the Tucson Annual Bird Count. Arizona has recorded 541 bird species. Native Sonoran Desert habitat begins at the edge of the patio. Hundreds of birds are visible most days from the patio. Coyotes sing you to sleep some nights. PARKS: Tohono Chul Park, Tucson Botanical Gardens and the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum provide guided bird, plant and wildlife tours. Saguaro National Park, also a mecca for hikers, bikers and wildlife enthusiasts is 25 minutes away. HIKING AND BIKING: Omni-Tucson is a green belt of paved hiking and biking trails among trees, ponds and the Santa Cruz Wash. Trails begin immediately behind Saguaro House and extend for miles inside and outside the resort. A hike up A-Mountain provides a beautiful view of Tucson and views of protected University of Arizona Desert research habitats. Talks in the historic library feature research projects open to the public. ASTRONOMY: 300 days of sunshine and clear skies are not only pleasant, but create the best night sky viewing in the continental US. There are three stargazing destinations here: University of Arizona Planetarium and Telescope; Mt. Lemon Observatory, and the Kitt Peak Observatory. Kitt Peak with 24 optical and two radio telescopes has special programs which require advance reservations. HISTORY: This region was settled in the 15th Century by the Spanish who established a series of Missions. The most famous, San Xavier del Bac is in Tucson. The final battle of the Civil War was fought at nearby Picacho Peak State Park which is also a great hiking destination. The Arizona State Museum, Old Tucson and Tombstone are other popular day-trips.

Notes:

  • Enjoy the luxury and serenity of Sonoran Desert sunsets from the dining, patio and great rooms at "Saguaro House" The Great Room is unique with with its native Saguaro wood and back-lit 14-foot open timber ceilings. The rooms are decorated with native American and western art. The ambiance is solitude, and quiet natural beauty. The native plant garden and common space provide truly unique indoor/outdoor living at Omni Tucson. Yet all of excitement of Tucson is a short drive away.
