Downtown townhome description

Casa De Las Montanas is a truly charming & glamorous townhome w/ vintage appeal in a quiet location. It is a very special place with all kinds of character and great views. The home has just been renovated, is 5 minutes from downtown and convenient to the University of Arizona, but is quiet and private and boasts amazing mountain and desert views. This is a secure and light filled home, with a delightful courtyard with a covered patio. It is not a cookie-cutter, beige box. It has been furnished with a welcoming mix of antiques and art to create a beautiful atmosphere. You are right near downtown, but are on the edge of the Tucson Mountains. Located in a charming neighborhood and a piece of tucson history, it is just west of the downtown area and only a matter of minutes to the Saguaro National Park West. A wide range of great restaurants and shops are on your doorstep, but there is still a sense of space.

The casa has 3 bedrooms & 2 full baths. The open plan kitchen is fully equipped with high standard cooking equipment, granite counters and stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. The open plan kitchen looks out to the dining area that can seat 8 or more, and the charming, working kiva fireplace. Sliding glass doors lead from the dining area out to the covered patio and enclosed courtyard, encouraging indoor/outdoor living. A unique gated bell tower leads you into the courtyard from the street. You will find the courtyard with its 100 year old saguaro cacti and prickly pear cacti and original mexican saulsolito tiles, is a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee, evening margarita or gaze at the star filled night skies.

The bedrooms boast brand new memory foam topped mattresses, fine 100% cotton sheets and lovely furnishings. The master contains a queen and has an en suite bathroom with travertine tiles and plush towels. The guest bedroom has a queen bed and a sweet view of the courtyard, and a travertine tiled bathroom, with a washer/dryer across the hall. The third bedroom has an iron cottage bed with a pull out, pop-up trundle that can be used as two twins or combined together for a king. A writing desk with an absolutely beautiful view to the west of open desert and mountains is a great place to admire the stunning sunsets.

Imagination, style and flare have been used throughout to make our home stand out from the run of the mill, hotel-like settings you find in so much of the Tucson vacation rental market. We independently own and manage the casa, you will not be dealing with an impersonal management company. We have travelled widely and work hard to make sure that all the little details we appreciate in a rental, are available for our guests. We take pride in the place and have many repeat guests, so we must be doing something right! Broadband wireless and a flat screen HDTV with local and network channels and live streaming Netflix is included. Central air conditioning and tile floors in the main living spaces, will keep you cool and comfy in summer and central heat and the working fireplace will keep you toasty in winter, during our few months when a little heat may be needed. A garage with garage door opener is available and of course there is a gas grill, so you can barbeque in the courtyard. The house is all on one level and has no steps so it is suitable for all.

There are so many activities on your doorstep. Great golfing, hiking, cultural activities, shopping and dining are all right nearby. There are walking trails through the desert, right across the street. We may be biased, but we think our location is amongst the best in tucson!

Ideally located to enjoy all that downtown Tucson has to offer, yet across from open desert and mountain views, is this charming, elegant vintage townhouse with a delightful courtyard. Only five minutes to the epicenter of downtown, with all its wonderful restaurants,clubs, thriving arts scene and the University of Arizona, this very special 3 bed/ 2 bath home, sits in a quiet, adorable development of southwest style homes on the west side of Tucson. You will not believe the views out over the desert and to the mountains, in all directions. The vintage community was built by one of Tucson's most creative builders, and character abounds in this wonderful neighborhood. You can drive 5 minutes in one direction and be in the heart of the city, and ten minutes in the other direction and be in the National Saguaro Park, with its stunning vistas and millions of cacti.

We love Tucson and think you will too. Its diverse history blends the Wild West, with colonial Spanish influence, Native American heritage, and Mexican culture with all the amenities of a small thriving American city and college town. You will never run out of the things to see and do in our corner of the Southwest. Whether your idea of heaven is hiking, biking, golfing, enjoying great diverse restaurants, and world class shopping, bird watching, museum hopping, taking in live music, sky gazing or navel gazing, you will be happy in Tucson. And with the nearly always sunny skies and wonderful year round climate, how could you go wrong? Come find out why we think Tucson is one of the neatest cities in the world. The unique bio-diversity will blow you away, and amenities in this funky old pueblo will keep you coming back. Tucson is an ideal base from which to explore the American Southwest. The Grand Canyon, Sedona, San Diego, Santa Fe,and Mexico are all within a day's drive. Come see for yourself why Tucson is one of the nation's most popular small cities to relocate to!
