Welcome to Tucson with all of the flavor of the Southwest! It's a great place to stay for outdoor enthusiasts and nature-lovers, an excellent location for cyclists and is called a 'hiker's heaven.' NE Tucson is the perfect location to vacation! There are many places to hike, bike and sightsee. (*This is a non-smoking property*).

Perfect for cyclists! Excellent location with easy access to miles of paved bicycle paths and main streets that all have designated bike lanes. Tucson is a bike-friendly city! Less than a half mile from the "Loop", a paved 50+ mile river park bike trail circling Tucson. Also located near the base of Mt. Lemmon, in 20 minutes you can be huffing your way up one of the iconic rides in American cycling.

The Casa Bonita is located on the exclusive Northeast side of Tucson near Mt. Lemmon. The 30-mile route to Mt. Lemmon's small community of Summerhaven (8,200 ft) and/or the summit (9,159 ft), begins at the T-intersection of E Tanque Verde Rd & E Catalina Hwy, only 2 miles from The Casa Bonita, and winds its way up to the top of the mountain past stunning rock formations and gorgeous views of the sprawling desert valley floor below. Catalina Hwy isn't actually a "highway"; it's also called 'Sky Island Scenic Biway', as it is a 2-lane road and the Santa Catalina Mountains are one of southern Arizona's 'sky islands'.
Mt. Lemmon offers cooler temperatures, beautiful pine trees, a lake and recreational opportunities including numerous campgrounds, picnic sites, hiking trails and incredible scenic views. At the peak is an operating ski slope in the winter months (normally providing skiing & snowboarding from late December into March or April) and 'sky rides' on the ski lift in the summer months. There are also restaurants, gift shops, etc.
At the Casa Bonita you will have the perfect balance of a charming residential neighborhood home--full of modern conveniences, while being nestled in the middle of the Sonoran Desert--just minutes away from vastly rich surroundings of a wide variety of the southwest's vegetation and wildlife. Our saguaro cactuses are unique to our desert and are not found anywhere else in the world!
The house is listed at an extremely reasonable and competitive monthly rate, especially during Tucson's gorgeous winter peak season for visitors and vacationers.
