Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
Vail, Arizona
The home is located next to Colossal Cave Park and sits high up looking over the Sonoran Desert Valley. It is perfect for either the adventurist or the book reader. Bike trails head off from the property and the 600 square foot deck gives anyone optimum quiet time. On the deck you have BBQ, comfortable furniture, and a wonderful jacuzzi. The home is complete with everything needed for home away from home comfort. We have had the property long enough to know what makes one most comfortable, we have left out... nothing.

Craig is very open about the mile long dirt road that's rough at the end but taking it slow was not a problem for us in our crappy Jeep Compass rental even during a rain storm. However, I must admit that we were a bit underwhelmed when we first arrived. This is a manufactured home that was not as clean as we keep our home but all the important areas were clean (floor, counters, bathroom, etc) However, I think we were just being a bit snobby at first since the place grew on us. It is in the middle of the desert after all.

First off, the location is remote but really close to Colossal Cave. We even saw a Gila Monster driving in one day. The property is decorated eclectically with lots of fun stuff to look at and it is STOCKED. Everything you could want is there even the little stuff like mayo, butter and other condiments that you wouldn't think to buy. Craig even left beer for us in the fridge and emailed once to check in with to see if everything was OK. That's above...

About the neighbourhood
Far enough away from Tucson and yet close enough for needs (20 minutes). Next door to Colossal Cave Park, Saguaro National Park, golf, Arizona Trail, Vail AZ and plenty more to do. 30 minutes from Tucson Airport. The 1 mile of dirt road to the home is traveled daily by residents in the area so it is in fine shape.
