"We had a lovely relaxing time in this luxurious, super-sized, 5-star, one-of-a kind vacation home. The mountain views from every room were gorgeous and the inside and outside amenities were plentiful. It was still close to grocery stores, restaurants and the I-10. Ron, the owner was helpful and easy to work with. The close-by Sonoro Desert Museum has a wonderful live raptor show that is a definite must-see!"

"My husband and I came to Tucson for a short stay. We were looking for a place that was close to a golf course. We found this gem in the desert. The home is beautiful. Views are spectacular of the city at night. The owner even met us at the home to give us a tour, and answer any questions that we had. Privacy was not an issue, the backyard is enclosed by a wall with lots of trees. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch and even used the fire pit (which was nice to have on a cool winter night) It was nice to listen to the rock water fall. Overall we enjoyed our stay. When we decide again to take a quick getaway we would diffidently return to this property."

"Only one word can define our stay here: PERFECT. Cynthia provided a beautiful location to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in sheer beauty and tranquility. The colors displayed by the natural setting of the desert are not exaggerated and are visible daily, with amazing sun rises and sets, thunderstorms with rainbows and glowing stars at night. The charming luminosa house has every detail guests need to feel beyond comfortable. Exceptionally clean and furnished with everything to make our stay complete and carefree (e.g. fantastic reading material on the Saguaro desert, pool towels, wonderfully homemade bath soap, and spices for cooking). Guests can easily unwind and enjoy birdwatching, water color painting, reading, meditation and eating with family/friends on the porch of the casita (which we loved doing everyday). Our young daughter enjoyed looking at the wildlife and drew multiple pictures of cacti, while identifying different kinds of animals she saw with books provided in the house.
Without any hesitation, we would return again and hope to do so again in the near future. Thank you Cynthia for your kindness, hospitality and making our anniversary a truly magical experience."

"What an amazing stay! I brought Chinese colleagues here to experience my 'old home'. I came from Tucson 35 years ago. The beautiful desert has not changed, so timeless. The Sunset house, unobtrusively nestled into that desert. The feel of the home leaves you at one with the desert. The floor plan allowed each person to have their own room and private bath. Loved the courtyard in the middle. My room had a private outside entrance so I could go out unnoticed to enjoy the hot tub..yes, in the early mornings, sun rise, quail calling, beautiful sky! The kitchen, fully outfitted. I would return to find my colleagues had prepared traditional Chinese breakfast. They too felt the peacefulness of home, the connection to simpler times and the happy family eating around the big dining table. We had full moon, night walks, constant picture taking. Constant amazement over how beautiful, how pristine, magically quiet. So thorough was this stay for filling my need for home, and my guests' need for quiet beauty, that we all, for all our own reasons, were reluctant to leave. Many thank you's, Karen, for sharing your home with us. Yes, I will return."
