Oro Valley house description
Out the front door Rancho Vistoso Boulevard beckons with its walking trails and ready access to hiking in special canyons populated with sajuaros. Bicycle paths line the boulevard and several local restaurants are an easy 3 mile bike ride from the house. The garage includes room for parking one car and private access to an elliptical machine, special Total Gym weight system and a TV.
Enjoy a tranquil oasis in the desert while sitting poolside watching the mountain backdrop at sunset as the colors turn from pink to purple and the stars brighten the sky!
This home is cozy enough for two but offers room and amenities for family and friends. The three bedrooms are separated from each other and have their own bathroom. Two have private access to the yard separate TVs. The master suite includes a roomy bedroom and sitting area with a queen tempurpedic mattress with massage options and elevation for head and legs. The master bathroom is newly remodeled with a walk in shower and therapeutic tub adjacent to a double walk in closet.
For those who like to cook, there is a new kitchen with double ovens, gas cooktop, microwave, fridge and dishwasher as well as an array of small appliances. Two can dine at the elevated granite countertop near the sliding glass doors to the yard or use the dining room which has comfortable seating for eight. The living room is furnished with a leather sofa and loveseat offering comfortable recliner seating. A stacked stone gas fireplace warms the room on chilly evenings. The sound system supports a 37 inch TV with blue ray DVD and a carousel CD system.
The large backyard faces north onto a wash and offers a panoramic view of the Catalina mountains. A ramada with special lighting and outdoor speakers to allow music to fill the air includes a private spa that can seat up to six people with specially designed jets for necks and backs. A propane fire pit warms brisk evenings adjacent to the 14 x 32 foot pool with an electric cover that offers the gentle sound of running water with six fountains. The pool can be heated for an additional fee. A special outdoor kitchen area includes a propane gas grill with plenty of serving space and ready access to several citrus trees laden with lemons and limes.
The home is an easy ride to area attractions and only 45 minutes from the Tucson airport and less than two hours from the Phoenix airport.
Pool has a gas heater and an electric cover to preserve heating. Cost of heat varies based on air temps and desired warmth of the pool.
Grocery stores are 3.3 miles from the house and specialty groceries with great produce, fish, chicken and healthy items are just over 5 miles away.
Restaurants are fantastic; we frequent locally owned and operated restaurants that include Italian, greek/seafood, Japanese, Mexican and more traditional food options. There is also an abundance of chain restaurants. We frequent Rubio Baja Grill about 4 miles from the house for their fresh Mexican and excellent fish tacos and great salads with great outdoor seating at the base of Pusch Ridge.

Home Away From Home
Home Away From Home
Our stay for the month of January was wonderful. We have rented from VRBO for 3 winters now, and this is right up at the top of our list. The owners were excellent in communicating with us and checking in to ensure our stay was comfortable and amenities were satisfactory. Very personable before and during our rental from them. The house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for our stay with our little dog and two year old. We are in the accommodations industry ourselves and are very particular about what we rent. This home passed the test! It was a home away from home! Thank you very much for helping to make our holiday fabulous.

Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners, age 55+, families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway.
Owner response: We were pleased to share our home with a family that included a young child and small dog. It is our preference to rent for a month or more so the renters can fully explore the many parks and trails in the area and accomplish day trips to local attractions and return to a comfortable, resort like setting at our home.
Our family really enjoyed staying here. The owner, Honey, was very accommodating and made sure that nothing was left out during our stay. This home has so much to offer. Great for entertaining, lounging or just simply enjoying the beautifully landscaped back yard. We would recommend this home to everyone and would definitely stay here again next time we visit Arizona! Thank you Honey!

Owner response: We really enjoyed having a family of five enjoy our home over the holidays. The holiday season in Tucson is one of our favorite times of year; the weather is perfect for outside activities of all types during the day. The evenings are perfect for sitting by the fire pit while the sun glows on the mountains. It was great knowing the family renting could relax at our home and use it to entertain their relatives in the area. We hope to host them again!
