Located high above Tucson in the exclusive Starr Pass Resort community, this newly decorated deluxe Casita offers access to this spectacular desert and mountain playground. You will be steps away from the renowned Arnold Palmer course at Starr Pass. You will enjoy the Olympic sized pool and Fitness Club located 200 feet from the Casita. Two on-site restaurants give you the choice of whether to cook or dine out.
This casita is an attached home on one level. It is not in an apartment/condo multi-story building as most units in Starr Pass are.
Free shuttles are available (or you can walk) to the 5-Star J.W. Mariott Resort where you may take advantage of their Spa, shops, and Restaurants. The Signature Grill provides a daily breakfast buffet that is the best in Arizona. Foods from Italy, Spain, and France can be sampled at the renowned Primo restaurant.
The Casita features two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, living/dining room, and a patio. Views are of the Catalina Mountains and Mt. Lemmon. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, flat panel TV, large master bath with separate shower/tub and his/her sinks. The guest bedroom has two queen sized beds, TV, DVD, Mini-Fridge, Microwave, sink, desk, and separate entrance. All new beds and bedding were installed at the beginning of 2016.
The fully equipped kitchen will delight even serious chefs with gas stove, ample food prep area, microwave, and a larger-than-average supply of cooking utensils and dishware. Extras include a deluxe juicer and coffee grinder. You may even choose to eat at the counter while seated in the Mexican style bar chairs.
The living/dining room area features leather chairs, fireplace, high beamed ceiling, 33in flat panel TV, DVD, phone, sofa bed, and Dining table for 6. Cable TV with HBO. While there is no wifi in the casitas, it is available at the coffee shop. Unlike most casitas with original decor, this casita has been totally redecorated and renovated.
The Casita complex borders scenic Tucson Mountain Park. You are only a couple miles from Suguaro National Park West and it's Desert Museum. Short drives will take you to Mt. Kitt Observatory, Tubac's art and furniture shops, Tucson's Historic 4th Street, the University of Arizona, Kirchner and Colossal Caves. You can easily make day trips to Tombstone, Sonoita, Bisbee, and Nogales on the Mexican border.
Starr Pass is truly a treasure that you should experience. It is a serene setting but offers active persons a wealth of opportunities. You can enjoy the City Lights by night and the great outdoors during the day.

About Dave McElwaine
As Boston natives we love to escape to Arizona year round. We love cycling, Southwestern food, and the endless sunshine. In the summer the mornings are cool and you better bring a sweater to dinner once the sun goes down!
Dave McElwaine purchased this Townhome in 2005
Why Dave McElwaine chose Starr Pass
We bought this property because of it's incredible location in the Tucson Mountains, with access to amazing trails for hiking and biking. The proximity of the JW Mariott sealed the deal with it's restaurants and Starbucks.

Great host, great location.
Starr Pass is a pleasant and quiet location. The pool and other facilities are very good, and the addition of wifi is a plus for the property. Dave is a wonderful host.
Just as advertised!
Casita 5 was perfect for our stay! Perfect quiet spot, steps within the pool and hiking trails! Cute casita that met all of our needs!!!
We hope you come back again soon. With all the blizzards back east, Tucson was a great place to be in March.
The casita was comfortable, a great location, beautiful view from patio. It could use some spiffing
We enjoyed our month in the casita. It is a terrific location with access to pool and clubhouse, has a great view of the desert from the patio, and is comfortably designed and furnished. The price was right, but It could use some all around spiffing up to be first rate.
Thank you! We just got our internet required throughout the property. Come back soon.
excellent location to golfing, biking, hiking
This unit totally fit all our needs! Beautiful scenery out the back door! Wildlife galore!
Enjoyed the easy access to golfing, biking and hiking--and the pool!
Everything we needed to make ourselves at home there!
Grocery stores and eating places close by!
Can't wait to go back next year!
We have two little dogs, who enjoyed the sidewalks for their walks, and they also found themselves at home!
Thanks to the Owner for all he did for us during our stay!
Thank you. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and are pleased to see that you will be back with us in 2019!
Our stay exceeded expectations
We stayed a week at the casita and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The casita is spacious and comfortably furnished (including plenty of towels and hangers.)
As others have mentioned, the location is perfect. I also appreciated how private and quiet it was.
Thank you. I am glad the weather was magnificent as well. Please come back next year. --Dave
I love Star Pass but the casita is very tired and needs redecorating
The location is awesome but the casita itself needs some work. The carpet has many spots. The TV in the double room doesn't work. The screen door in the front has holes in it. The view is wonderful. It could be a show place with some new furniture and carpet. They also need more glassses
Thank you for the suggestions. We are committed to keeping this property in tip top shape, including all new beds this year. We hope you come back again.
