"Great condo in the Omni Tucson National golf resort in North Tucson--Shannon/Magee area. It was the perfect size and layout for two couples, which afforded lots of privacy. Nobody was ever stepping over anyone! Situated right on the Tucson National Golf course, you can watch golfers go by and check out their technique. Outside patio table with BBQ (propane) some Saguaros and Chollas to make it a real Arizona experience. Everything was VERY clean. Two bathrooms- one for the master, which had really cool decor with copper sinks and finishes. Lots of big fluffy towels for baths or to use at the pool--which is located a few steps away. Guest bathroom was spacious and had the same tasteful decor--everything you needed. Master bed room has a huge king sized bed that is very comfortable. The only drawback, is that the master bed room did not have a TV. Cords and boxes were there--but no TV. Guest bedroom was wonderful. Super comfy lodge pole style bed and big closet, lamps, blinds for sleeping in etc., Wish there would have been a TV, but we used our ipads for watching movies. The living room was tastefullly decorated with very comfortable furniture and plenty of room.The television was older and very small, probably 27"--and hard to see, so it would have been nice to have a bigger flat screen style. Nontheless, the WiFi throughout the unit was perfect! No difficulty hooking up to the internet. The kitchen had everything you could need! Grocery stores (Basha's) is the closest to you, and while you are there you will want to buy several water jugs as Tucson/Arizona water is not great tasting. We spent two days at the beautiful and sparkling clean pool, located just around the corner. The water was perfect and the sun was out every day. The last thing I have to express about this condo, was how quiet it was. It was not noisy at all and it made sitting out on the patio very relaxing. Other plus: the full sized garage for parking your car, etc., AND the full size washer and dryer. Very convenient! The owner of this condo, Karen was wonderful to deal with! I give it a big thumbs up, and would love to stay again!"Guest: tucker3621 Date of Stay: February 2013 Review Submitted: March 6, 2013View listing
"We had a great time. Condo was clean, and well taken care of. The location is great. Any questions we had were answered right away, we didn't have any problems. The pool is great. We will be back for sure, and we would recommend this property to all friends and family. We went to dinner at the Talking stick Casino, The Italian Grotto in Scottsdale. We hiked Squaw Peak Mountains. There is definately alot to do including just relaxing by pool."Guest: mazzones Date of Stay: March 2012 Review Submitted: April 1, 2012View listing

Arizona Travel Tips
Major Attractions near Arizona Vacation Rentals
Perhaps the most well known of Arizona’s attractions is the Grand Canyon which runs through the northwestern corner of the state. This vast national park has numerous viewing points along the canyon rim. There are several hiking trails that can be explored on foot; however, visitors are cautioned to be adequately equipped with sun protection, maps and sufficient water before setting off on the trails. Aerial flights in helicopters and small fixed wing aircraft can be booked from either Flagstaff or Las Vegas.
There are many historical centers in Arizona. Old pioneer towns and ghost towns tell stories of their own. Museums record the culture and history of the Old West and the early pioneering days. There are many historical landmarks including Spanish Missions and art deco court houses. The Air and Space Museum is a great place to visit if you have an interest in aircraft. There are also relics of old forts dating back to the days of the Indian Wars.
Arizona is home to many top-quality golf courses. The warm year-round climate and wide open spaces make it an ideal golfing vacation destination. There are more than 300 gold courses where you can challenge your skills. Most are located in and around the major cities of Phoenix, Flagstaff, Lake Havasu and Tucson. If traveling in the hot summer months, you can often benefit from reduced green fees.
Arizona is a destination that has many outdoor activities available. In the cold winter months, the mountain regions become a snow skiing paradise. Top-class ski resorts have ski runs for all levels of skiing ability and many are equipped with snowboarding terrain parks. One of the best ways to explore the countryside is the traditional way -- in the saddle. Horseback excursions are offered by a number of local outfitters. Mountain biking is another popular pastime, especially in the mountain areas. In the western parts of Arizona, the lakes and rivers provide lots of opportunities to enjoy a wide range of water sports.
Visitors to Arizona Cabins
Arizona attracts visitors with a wide range of interests. Some come merely to enjoy the starkly contrasting landscapes and warmer climate. Golf is a big attraction, especially considering the best time to play in Arizona is during the cooler winter months. There are many historic sites and museums for people who have an interest in pioneer and western culture and history.
Getting to Arizona Vacation Homes
The primary airport in Arizona is located in Phoenix. The Sky Harbor International Airport hosts flights from all over North America as well as from Central America and the Caribbean. There are regular commercial flights from most major cities in the United States. Tucson serves as a secondary airport and hosts a wide range of domestic and regional carriers.
Best Time of Year to Travel to Arizona
Most people think that Arizona’s climate is typically hot and dry. It does, however, vary quite distinctly between the different regions in Arizona. The state has two different climatic areas -- the south and central desert plains and the northern mountainous areas. The mountain areas are typically colder and enjoy good snowfalls in the winter months. Summers are milder and more temperate which make it easier to enjoy some of the outdoor activities on offer. The central and southern regions experience very hot summers which is where Arizona as a whole probably got its reputation from for having a hot and dry climate. Tucson and Phoenix are both located in this region. In the winter months, visitors can still enjoy warm daytime temperatures as it only gets colder as the sun sets.
