A very comfortable house on the FAR edge of Tucson
A very comfortable house on the FAR edge of Tucson
This Continental Ranch house offers very comfortable beds, a quite nicely equipped kitchen, and electronics that should meet everyone's needs ( 2! TVs/DVD players). The hot tub becomes therapeutically warm almost instantaneously and was a wonderful spot to admire stars. (Didn't use the pool - too cold in Feb./Mar.) The back yard is even sufficiently private for sun-bathing au naturale. Having a washer and dryer available makes this an easy place in which to live. The proximity of one of Tucson's famous bike trails (just four houses away) makes recreational riding really easy. (We regularly rode the four miles to the nearby Library - itself on the trail - where we could connect easily to the Internet.) The yard is fully fenced so it can contain most families beasts. Having Wi-Fi at the house would be a nice addition. We found the best "neighborhood" grocery store, in our opinion, to be "Sprouts" at Orange Grove and Thornydale, about 5 miles away, not the Fry's (a Kroger unit) on Cortaro or the Safeway further out on Silverbell. Access to the west unit of Saguaro Nat'l Park is really easy - a 20 minute drive via No. Wade Rd., West Painted Rocks Rd. and No. Sandario Rd. On the other hand, getting to the Univ. of Arizona or to downtown Tucson takes 20-30 minutes at least, and to Sabino Canyon or other places on the east side of Tucson... 45-60 minutes if you're not held up by road construction, which seems to be almost everywhere in Spring, 2013.

Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing.
We recently stayed at this property for one week. We found the home to be very clean and comfortable. The backyard was lovely and made for a very relaxing week. It was nice to have the gas grill outside as well. The location is great for going to the Desert Museum, Old Tucson and Saguaro West. There is a very nice grocery store nearby as well as a Starbucks (no internet in the house). The neighborhood is quiet. Access to the freeway is good as well. It would have been nice to have some containers in the kitchen with lids. Otherwise the kitchen is fairly well stocked with the needed utensils, cookware and dishes. We would stay here again.

Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sightseeing, families with young children.
Home is as described and owner is easy to contact and work with. I would stay again when in the Tucson area. My only wish was for pool heat, I would pay a little extra if offered. We traveled every day and found the location perfect, thank you for a great vacation!!
