Superb place

  • 5 of 5

The house was superb. Beautiful home and accommodations. Great pool, and we all commented on nice the landscaping was - incredible trees and cacti. Would highly recommend this home. So close to Mt Lemmon that we would have to ride away from the mountain for our warmup.

Owner's Response: Hi Walter, good to hear that you like what we like. When we return from Mt Lemmon with our bicycles - usually pretty tired - we are happy that the house is so close ... Best wishes Wolfgang

From start to finish this was by far the best VRBO experience I have ever had. The owner was incredibly responsive. The pictures do not depict the clean, organized, well appointed and stylish southwest décor. Each room of the house offers an enchanting view and southwestern theme. The owner provided step by step directions for entering the home and operating the grill, pool and hot tub.

My family and I really enjoyed our time. The location was convenient to Mt. Lemon, Sabino Canyon, shopping and Tucson relatives.

If given the opportunity, I would stay here again!

Beautiful and private.

  • 5 of 5

This house was simply gorgeous inside and out. Very spacious. We had 7 people in our group and we had plenty of space. He only downside is that we didn’t get to use the living room because we spent all of our time out on the patio :)

Definitely a great place to stay to escape the cold Michigan weather. Very close to Mt. Lemon for hiking or biking.

Very quiet and private.

Loved it!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 couples) spent a week at Entrada Catalina. It is a very large and beautiful home in a very quiet neighborhood with great views of the mountains. The kitchen is well outfitted and we also made good use of the grill. The hot tub/pool area is great and we enjoyed having fires in the outdoor fireplace. Overall, it is one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed at. The only downside is that it's a bit of a drive to central Tucson, but the location is very convenient for trips to Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, or Saguaro Nation Park East.

The Neighborhood

Entrada Catalina is located in the quiet Northeast of Tucson, 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 Catalina Highway (which leads up to Mt. Lemmon), the Agua Caliente Park and Saguaro Park East.

The next Safeway supermarket is 5 miles (8 minutes) away.

The desert

Living in Entrada Catalina is 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 neighborhood 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.
