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 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.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. Very clean and a lot of room inside and outside.

The owners put up bird feeders so we could enjoy bird life while we ate breakfast. The neighborhood is very quiet. I would stay here again.

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.
