Excellent and great family home!
Excellent and great family home!
We visited in April with two young active boys and this house is solid, safe and fun! Loved the pool with the gate access as well as the perfect patio with sufficiently shady pergola. We would definitely rent again when in the area. Owner was available and amenable to any request. Home is well stocked, open and most comfortable king bed! Thanks for a great vacation!

Owner response: Thanks so much for staying with us for your vacation and taking excellent care of our home. It's a real pleasure having responsible, caring renters such as you and your family! When you are ready for another get away, please call us. PS...We too love our outdoor living area, which has been greatly enhanced in the backyard, by our recent addition of a huge shade ramada..patio. See you soon!
We just stayed in this beautiful house for about a week. The homeowners couldn't have been more gracious and willing to accomodate our needs. The house is spacious and landscaping is beautiful! We were only disappointed that we weren't able to enjoy the pool as the weather was just a little too cool for us. The master bed is a memory foam mattress (nice!) and the 2 queens were very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice home about 45 minutes outside of Tucson. Drive was very easy and the view from the front yard was beautiful! Thanks again for sharing your home with us and for all the little extras you left for us!

Owner response: It was our pleasure meeting you and your family and having you stay with us. Sorry the weather wasn't warmer so you could have enjoyed swimming in the deep end, lounging in the lagoon area or just cooling off in the pool. We like doing little extras for our guests so it really feels like a home yet like a vacation too where guests can relax and "get away from it all". Love to have you return......for business or pleasure.
My wife and I stayed at this very nice three bedroom home in March of 2012. The home is very spacious and well maintained. We enjoyed the covered patio and the beautiful pool and private grounds. The kitchen is completely stocked with all the dishes and utensils we needed. It is close to restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and churches. We enjoyed our stay and the weather was perfect

Owner response: We take pride in ownership and strive to place the customer first. Since you and your wife returned home we have continued to improve our former residence by installing a new combination built-in microwave/oven and a new dishwasher. We have also added window coverings for the arches in the MBR and the dining room. John and I, too, are very happy with the new covered ramada and glad we had the turf installed in the pool area last winter. Both of these additions have added to the ambiance and coziness in the backyard "retreat". We welcome your return......miss seeing you at church.
We had a couple of 'musts" for our AZ vacation. One was location, and this was perfect, close to golf, Oro Valley pool, stores, the works. The other was a fenced in yard for our dog. Done! An added plus, the pool. John and Barb were excellent hosts. And yes, we would recommend it.

Owner response: We "must" tell you, our Canadian neighbors, allies and renters that we are honored that you chose our location in Oro Valley as your AZ. vacation home and that it meet your satisfaction in a number of ways. The nearby Oro Valley Aquatic Center is well on its way to completion. As avid lap swimmers, we know you really enjoyed the Center. We hope you can return to our home, with your Airedale, to enjoy your leisurely "dunking" in our backyard oasis, as well.
We stayed here the week between Christmas Eve and New Years and had a great time. The property is spacious, well appointed, quiet, very private, and offers a great backyard area for relaxing, star gazing, and javalina-watching. (We saw a javalina amble along the area just outside the back fence—checking out fruit that had fallen from one of the miniature orange trees.) If you like golf, this property is convenient to Oro Valley courses and not far from main arteries that take you to those farther away. The owners live nearby and were available for questions or help as needed. They went out of their way to provide guidance on nearby restaurants and attractions and had collected brochures, maps, and a wealth of other information pieces to help us discover all that Tucson has to offer. We very much appreciated the extra touches like a box of homemade cookies and tasteful holiday decorations that made this vacation property feel like a home.
