So Close Yet So Far Away!

Private home nestled in the foothills of the Tucson Mountains.
Charming Ranch House in the midst of Sonoran Desert vegetation and mountain views yet only minutes from I-10, Saguaro National Park West, Golfing, Shopping and other service venues.
Our Great Uncle Ed purchased the property in the 1950’s, built the home and lovingly maintained and manicured the surrounding desert. His refuge looks very much the same now as it did then. We have his same passion for the natural beauty of the property and have worked to preserve it in his honor to share with you.
The Casita was recently renovated: bath, fixtures, paint, tile and updated with central air/heat. A perfect blend of Retro Ranch Style and Classic Mexican Craft work.

Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is just as described; clean, well decorated and outfitted. Perfect for short or extended stay. The owner was fantastic - friendly, helpful, and responsive; explained everything I needed before I arrived and showed me everything when I got there; and while close if needed, stayed out of the way.

The view and location are perfect for experiencing an AZ desert vacation. Close to everything you need; far enough to be private when you want it - in a very safe environment. I would recommend to friends and family and would love to go back.

Management response:

Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

As advertised, there was easy access to the area, yet was very private and quiet. The owner was pleasure to deal with and the home had everything we needed for our 2 week stay.

Management response:

Thank you so much for the great review and for choosing to stay in our beautiful desert home. We hope to see you again. Regards, Robert
