Catalina Desert Retreat is a relaxing and luxurious desert getaway with spectacular views and easy access to the outdoors. The retreat is a beautifully appointed and environmentally-friendly home on two private acres. It has something for everyone! Mountain bikers and hikers can access world class hiking and biking trails from the house, including the 50 Year Trail and the Chutes. Golfers can drive 5 minutes to SaddleBrooke’s premiere public golf courses. Near-by Pusch Ridge Stables offers scenic horseback riding excursions through acres of beautiful desert and mountain trials for riders of all skill levels. Birdwatchers don’t need to leave the property to glimpse a variety of local and migratory species. Sit down with a cup of tea and view hummingbirds, roadrunners, cactus wrens, woodpeckers, hawks, quail, cardinals, an occasional oriole and numerous other birds from the back patio! After enjoying the outdoors, kick back and relax in the salt-water pool or spa. End the day by throwing some dinner on the grill and taking pleasure in the spectacular display of colors at sunset. The house is newly remodeled with solar power and a private well. The property is entirely fenced with a solar-powered gate for entry and a two-car garage. It is tastefully furnished with fabulous views, and adorned with original artwork from local artists. In addition to the spacious great room and entertainment area, there are three bedrooms, and an office with Wi-Fi available throughout. Two bedrooms have king sized beds and the third bedroom has a queen sized bed, sleeping six in total. Luxurious mattresses and bedding are all brand new. There are two large TVs with DIRECTV connection, as well as a PlayStation 3 and a small movie/video game collection. It is an easy 15-minute drive to the internationally renowned Biosphere 2, Catalina State Park, local restaurants, shopping, farmer’s markets and movies. Only a forty-minute drive to other area attractions, e.g. Arizona - Sonora Desert Museum (a must see), Old Tucson Movie Studio, Saguaro National Park, Sabino Canyon, and downtown Tucson. Enjoy a day of spa treatments at the famous Miraval Resort & Spa just down the road. If you are here in February, don’t miss Tucson’s world famous Gem and Mineral Show. Check out our visitors’ guide for information on restaurants, shopping, and local events. It includes suggested day trips to other Southern Arizona attractions such as Mt. Lemmon, Tombstone, Bisbee, Sonoita Vineyards, and Chiricahua National Monument. Your local hosts, Dan and Wendy, are always available to provide you with more details about hikes and other hidden treasures. More

This beautiful home has incredible mountain views. The area is great and close enough to attractions but gives you the experience of desert living. The yard is full of birds that sing songs each morning as you drink coffee admiring the views. The beds are...More
