Our place is close to golf courses, I-10, good access to downtown Tucson (20 min drive), but with Sonoran desert privacy-- very quiet ranch lands, shopping 10 min away, views of Tucson Mtn sunsets and Catalina Mtn sunrises . You’ll love our place because of the coziness, location, solitude, security, lush desert vegetation, flowers, hummingbirds and minerals. The South wing is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Karen is available in north wing of house for questions.
- No open fires or fires in fireplace. Grill is available adjacent to veranda. For weekly rentals, there is a $50 cleaning fee for each additional week after the first week.
