ReviewsWrite a review
I have stayed in many VRBO homes over the past several years, this is the nicest by a long shot. The owners have a keen eye for every little detail. It is very hard to put into words how cool, relaxing, entertaining and nice this home is to spend our vacation. We will definitely be back in the future.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We built this house in 2008 just prior to our son Aiden being born. We have since relocated to northern Arizona for Kara's work (medical field), while I still work for the government as an aviator. We love the Elwood (yup, we named our home) and visit regularly - thus the warm feeling you get when you are staying here. This is simply not a 'Hotel House' but a place we visit regularly and still call home. We really have grown fond of this area, the people, and enjoy spending time at the Elwood whenever possible. When we moved to northern Arizona we didn't want to sell our home because we would love to retire here. Instead, we felt it best to rent the property to good people who appreciate a home with nice things, and looking for a relaxing getaway. We feel there are people just like us who want to stay at a beautiful home with personality, and not a home with the personality of a Holiday Inn. We sincerely hope we have succeeded in this endeavor, and look forward to you staying here, discovering how wonderful and warm this house is, and hopefully making this your Arizona getaway home of choice!
Why the Owner Chose Sahuarita:
While we live in northern Arizona, we still regularly visit our home and ensure it remains a place with a warm decor & welcoming vibe which lends the comfort of being 'home' upon arriving. We have used VBRO and HomeAway in our travels and too often the homes are nice but lack personality and that welcoming. Instead these homes felt more like an over-sized hotel room. With those experiences in mind, we have hopefully succeeded in making the Elwood feel welcoming, comfortable, and like a home away from home during your stay. We take great pride in our home, and we want to ensure your stay with us is one where you will want to return again.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property has everything. It is a beautifully furnished home in a gated community within Rancho Sahuarita, the 10th ranked master community in the country. The Elwood has keyless entry, enclosed garage parking, premium satellite cable/media (Directv, NFL Sunday Ticket, Netflix, Digital Media Drive with over 500 movies & television shows), hot tub, outdoor front/back professionally landscaped patios with fireplaces, custom barbecue, exterior automatic lighting, private den, loft, WiFi, and a kitchen with all the food prep items you need. Landscaper and weekly hot tub maintenance included in rate as well. Best of all this house is just outside of Tucson (20 minutes) and away from the traffic congestion of the city. It is centrally located near the I-19 for easy access in all directions versus the hampered Tucson road system.
