Tucson National Estates house description

Owners, Russ and Vicki Butler welcome you to 'Desert Dream'.
Your vacation starts with a very well appointed, fully furnished home. We have taken the time to provide you the things that make a house a home. Luxurious beds and linens, cable TVs, wireless Internet, house phone, washer, dryer, and a well equipped kitchen await you. As you move to the outside, the beautiful panoramic view of the Catalina Mountains serve as a backdrop for your private, pebble tec, saltwater pool & spa, outdoor dining, BBQ grill, covered patio, and elevated sun deck. Inside or out - life is but a dream.
Managers, Todd and Stacey Wolff, live nearby to answer any questions you may have. Things to do, dining, outdoor activities, golf, tourist attractions - give us a call. We are here to help. New pool and spa, remodeled interior, and all the comforts of home.


Welcome to 'Desert Dream': Vicki -
As the owner of this home, I wanted to create a haven for myself and my family. Coming from Alaska, I find that Tucson not only warms my body, but my heart and soul. I come to rejuvenate, relax, and shed the burdens of daily life; and, let the calmness of the desert embrace me. It truly is my Desert Dream.

Todd & Stacey -
We want your visit to Desert Dream to be a memorable vacation for you and your family. Enjoy all that Tucson and its surrounding attractions have to offer. The home is well appointed and should have everything you need for a very enjoyable visit. As always, simply call if you need suggestions for things to do, restaurants, or places to see.

Things to Do: Enjoy hiking and biking the numerous mountain and city trails, or experience world class golf at one of the numerous golf clubs sprinkled throughout Tucson. Maybe you'd like to watch the desert bloom in the Spring! Or see the Arizona Diamondbacks during their Major League Spring Baseball Training. Come on down for the famous Tucson Gem & Mineral show, or visit the local wildlife and gardens at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (my personal favorite!). Need more ideas: Tombstone, The Copper Creek Mine, Reid Park Zoo, Aircraft Boneyard, Biosphere II, and the beautiful 1700 Spanish Mission: San Xavier del Bac. Want to cool off? See Tucson underground via Kartchner Caverns State Park or Colossal Cave Mountain Park. Or just stay home and plunge into the salt water pool, or enjoy a relaxing massage from the spa. Afterall, it is your 'Desert Dream.'

Where to eat.: Ahhhh...where to eat? How do I begin? Do you head down to the University area and taste all of the sandwich shops and exotic fare? Or go downtown for Cafe Poco Cosa - imaginative Mexican cuisine? Or hit the nearby Thunder Canyon Brewery or World Sports Grill? The J Bar Lounge or La Pasada for happy hour with a view. Hit La Encantada Mall for Ra (sushi), NoRTH (modern Italian cuisine), Blancos (tacos & tequila), Blue Fin (seafood) and you can always pop into AJ's (excellent fine foods grocer). For the best pancakes in town, you've got to drive down to BoBo's - the all American greasy spoon. Try Frank's for breakfast with an attitude. Viavace is always a top dining choice. Number #1 choice for the ladies - choose from Sauce or Wildflower. And don't forget your own backyard. Fire up the BBQ and have some steaks on the grill.
