Recent Gates Pass property reviews

  • Great location, house and host

    "My wife and I stayed in Phil's guest house during February 2012. It is a wonderfully bright and charming small house that gives the feeling of living in the desert. You don't hear the neighbors and the property is so large that you seem to be alone. The owner, Phil, is a marvelous host: a very friendly, helpful and unintrusive gentleman (in the true sense of the word) who spends a lot of time with is art. His ceramic art and uplifting paintings decorate the guest house. When we arrived, he had the fridge stocked with orange juice, cheeses, bread etc to get us through the next day and then some. There was coffee ready for brewing and he invited us to dinner at his house so that we would not have to cook on the first day there. Phil became a friend over that month and we would stay there without hesitation again. Whether we do or not, I know that the next time we are in Tucson we will at the very least drop by for a visit. I recommed this property without any hesitation whatsoever."

  • Casita Luminosa

    "All the positive reviews helped us decide to spend our vacation at the Luminosa, and it more than lived up to expectations. The casita is lovingly and tastefully decorated with great attention to comfort. The setting is spectacular, surrounded by majestic saguaros with the mountains in the distance. My husband and I especially enjoyed watching the sun set from the back patio. Cynthia is the perfect hostess. She provided the orientation to the area that we requested, let us know that she was available as needed, and allowed us to relax in privacy. Casita Luminosa is perfect for couples who want to get away from the rush and routine of day-to-day life."

Gates Pass Travel Tips

Gates Pass Vacation Rental Homes Give You an Amazing Experience

At Gates Pass, Tucson, all that's best about a wilderness vacation can be enjoyed. Desert landscapes festooned with Arizona's prolific cactus, the saguaro, provide visitors with a unique backyard. Nightfall over the spectacular Tucson Mountains is just one of the things giving these Gates Pass condos truly breathtaking appeal.

An Abundance of Private Rental Homes

Casitas with a Spanish flavor, tree-shaded patios, Mexican-style adobe houses and green, environmentally-friendly homes, full of character, offer real getaway retreats. These privately owned properties have been lovingly tended, decorated and furnished by proud proprietors who have then chosen the VRBO (Vacation Rentals by Owner) website to list their rental homes on.

Owners supply quantities of detailed information to prospective renters via the VRBO website, and can be contacted direct, ensuring that your queries are answered personally with the aim of giving you the dream vacation you long for.

Great Advantages to Staying in Gates Pass Condos

Although sited off the beaten track in the Sonoran Desert, each amid its own unspoiled terrain, Gates Pass vacation rental homes are not far from amenities like the pool and gym at Starr Pass Resort, available to non-residents on short-term memberships. This means you can be on a self-catering vacation with Tucson vacation rentals, savoring all the privacy and freedom that it entails.

There is a wealth of places to visit, each one enhancing your Southern Arizona experience. Don't miss the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum or Old Tucson, former movie location, full of hauntingly nostalgic saloon bars and livery stables. Gates Pass provides marvelous photo opportunities whether you are visiting Tucson Mountain Park, known for its hiking trails, or Saguaro Wilderness Area in the Rincon Mountains.

Dining out in Tucson offers a stunning amount of choice, from Italian restaurants such as Caruso's, North 4th Ave to Daisy Mae's Steakhouse on West Anklam Road.
