About The Owner

We are Seattle natives, and now primarily live on Vashon Island in WA State. We also spend time in our Seattle condo, our desert home in Tucson, AZ and our condo in Hawaii, all of which are also available to rent through VRBO. Working in sports television has its perks, but after many days on the road our favorite things to do are spend relaxing days in the beautiful places we call home. Tucson is one of our favorite places on Earth and we hope you are able to enjoy it as well!


Nicole and Preben Martin

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Las Palomitas

We love Tucson and are there as often as possible. Unfortunately our jobs keep us away too often, so we share our property with friends, family and VRBO renters! We think the Catalina Foothills provide some of the most beautiful vistas in the world which is why we call it home from time to time. That, and the endless blue sky, sunshine and great food!

What makes this house unique

We built our home as a primary residence, so it has many custom features and upgrades that other rental properties may not have. We hand selected the lot and interior finishes, put lots of love and thought into the back yard amenities and added windows and positioned the house to perfectly take in the stunning views. We know you'll love it too!

The Best

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in this lovely home and we loved it just as much as the other times! Preben is so nice to work with, the home is spectacular, the location is perfect. I just can't say enough about how much our family has enjoyed this home!

Thanks Preben!

Everything went off without a hitch. The house was just beautiful. We loved the pool table and the hot tub. We had a family gathering of about 12 people and the house was more than large enough. We could have tripled that amount of guests! I would recommend anyone going to Tucson to consider this home. The location could not have been better for views and getting around! Thank you Preban and Nicole for letting us stay in your beautiful home!

Outstanding location - near to great shopping and dining.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the time we stayed at this place. It was located close to shopping and dining. We relocated to Tucson and stayed at this property while we searched for a home to buy. It has a home feel to it that makes the stay enjoyable. Lovely backyard, fenced in, so it worked well for our house-trained boxer. The outdoor barbecue, fire pit and hot tub are great features that just add to the enjoyment. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking to escape from colder winters to some nice sunny weather!

an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

this is an amazing place! it's located in the center of the foothills with easy access to nearby shopping and dining, yet tucked into a very private and quiet spot. we mainly spent our days there hiking and biking. nothing beats sitting in the hot tub, with blue skies, and a view of the catalinas after a full day outdoors.... unless it's sitting by the fire pit, under starry skies, looking at the silhouette of a saguaro, while enjoying a margarita. simply tremendous. the patio is a mini resort in and of itself!

the house is every bit as spacious and lovely as the pictures portray it. very clean. very easy to reach the owners. they were quite responsive, and a pleasure to deal with. this was my first vrbo experience, and it couldn't have gone any smoother. we fell in love with the area. it makes me happy just thinking about the time we spent there. we'll definitely be back again!
