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.

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

Beautiful home and view!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and just as described. The house easily accommodated all of us - providing privacy along with a large kitchen, indoor living room and outdoor space to hang out. The pool, outdoor covered patio and view of the Catalina Mountains were amazing!! Mt. Lemmon and U of A are a short car ride from the house. We would definitely stay here again.

Better than imagined

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, we were awestruck when we first walked in. The fireplaces made the home so comfortable and inviting. The grounds and gardens were well maintained, the pool and spa area clean and relaxing. We brought our family from Connecticut out to enjoy Christmas with our son who is stationed there in the Air Force. The seven of us had so much fun and made a lot of new memories. We found the location of the house perfect for our daily excursions and site seeing. The owners are friendly and professional and easy to communicate with.

The house is wonderful and I would highly recommend it!

Fantastic house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Cycling trip with a bunch of guys to escape Chicago winter. The house is very well maintained and the owners were responsive to all our needs. Location is an ideal launch point for cycling Mt Lemmon, Saguaro East, etc. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review - actually we bought the house in this location to be on the road to Mt. Lemmon in 2 minutes. Consider to be here in November for the big El Tour de Tucson cycling event.

Beautiful home in peaceful, natural setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending Christmas with extended family in this comfortable, inviting, beautifully decorated home at the base of Mount Lemmon. The adorable gas fireplaces, lovely furnishings, spacious rooms, artistic touches throughout, and excellent hot tub added to our enjoyable stay. We enjoyed access to many points of interest in the Tucson area, while the neighborhood had many roads for walking with a country-like feel (lots of birds and birdsongs). I felt like I was living in "House Beautiful" magazine! We highly recommend this lovely home!
