The Guest house is furnished in comfortable western style, with a full kitchen, down to the last detail for fixing your holiday dinner. All you bring are the groceries. Front porch, with swing to sit and watch the sun set or read a Louis L’Amour western novel or book on Arizona and the old west from the Guest house library. Outside you will find wonderful views of the Catalina and Tortolita mountains, spacious patios with hot tub, fire pit, exceptional barbecue area and fountains. Hot tub, fully enclosed for privacy in gazebo that opens onto patio with waterfall and trickling stream flowing down to the pond. By special arrangement, the Ranchita may be reserved for large gatherings or reserve a private room in the Ranchita's main house, see add # 265954.

For the golfer: Golf on one of the many public or private golf courses. Arthur Pack Public Golf Course is 10 minutes from the Bunkhouse. Tucson is home to the World Golf Accenture Match Play, which is held at Dove Mountain in February only 10 minutes away from the Bunkhouse.

For the hiker: Tucson has an incredible county, state, and national parks hiking trail system which can be reviewed on web pages for Pima County, Arizona State Parks, and the National Parks. Call for webpages and other information.

NW Tucson on the border of Oro Valley and Marana. In town - so shopping malls, theaters, other entertainment, and fine dining are minutes away. Easy access to freeway: 20 minutes to downtown (gem and mineral show) and University of Arizona; minutes from shopping, golf courses (public and private), fine dining and entertainment; 30 minutes to Tucson International Airport and 1.5 hours to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport; 1 or 2 hrs by freeway to surrounding rural communities of Rio Rico, Green Valley, Benson, Sonoita, Tombstone, Bisbee, Douglas, and Nogales, Arizona, and Mexico. Great hiking and horse venues nearby at Catalina State Park and Saguaro National Monument. Horse accommodations available on the Ranchita.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My little Ranchita suits me just fine. It seems like I am out in the big wide open desert, but I am really in town, with all the big-city conveniences at my fingertips.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Three years ago, we built the guest house. Last year, Mom lived there for two months while she nursed a sick horse back to health. She enjoyed the simplicity and thought what a great place to vacation. Now, I rent the bunkhouse to a few well-chosen guests, who seem to enjoy it as much as Mom did when she stayed there.
