                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: Gary is a counselor/psychotherapist in private practice. Carole was a Special Ed teacher for many years. Together, we have been landlords for nearly ten years, very much enjoying the tenants we serve and enjoying providing folks with beautiful, peaceful places for them to call home! We have been grateful that our tenants have found us to be as fair, honest, responsive and caring as we try to be. And we feel blessed with so many wonderful tenants! And now this is a new adventure, to share Casa Serena with a bunch of new wonderful people, excited to be able to give them, as well, a beautiful peaceful place for them to call home, while they are visiting Tucson! ( And we have several other beautiful peaceful getaways in central Tucson for you to consider as well! )

                      Why the Owner Chose Sam Hughes:
                      In the over 20 years we've lived in Tucson, Sam Hughes, the charming Historic neighborhood just to the east of the University of Arizona campus, has always been our favorite neighborhood. With Sam Hughes Village ( where much loved Rincon Market is like a community center of sorts )at the center of its square mile, Sam Hughes has always felt to us like a warm, friendly, charming, laid-back village (right in the heart of Tucson)!Over these last 5 1/2 years we have loved living here! And it felt like a natural extension - of the joy we have been having in being landlords over these last 10 years - to open Casa Serena, that folks might get to experience both this beautiful home and this wonderful neighborhood which we find to be such a treasure!
