About Karine Maillard

My name is Karine and we own this property since 2006.

Our family had moved from California, and we fell in love with this beautiful Santa Fe house! We remodeled it with a great excitement, and enjoyed it everyday we lived there...

We decided to buy another property as our daughter needed a farm to raise animals (she is studying to become a Vet!) but we did not want to sell this place...we'll be back for retirement!

Now it is all yours, and we will be happy to provide you with a wonderful experience in the Desert.

Welcome to La Hacienda del Mayar!

Karine Maillard purchased this house in 2006

Why Karine Maillard chose Tucson

Saguaro East National Park is located accross the road...and we simply fell in love with the Desert!

We are close to town, though secluded, and the views from our property are incomparable.

With sun guaranted!!

A typical Southwesten ambience,'nothing like home'

Hacienda del Mayar

tom (franklin, ny, usa)

Review submitted: October 17, 2012 Date of arrival: October 3, 2012

Hacienda Del Mayar was perfect for my my three children, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren accompanied my wife and I to Tucson. Spacious and well appointed, this ranch on the edge of the desert captured the essence of what a vacation should be in the southwest. Everything was well thought out and our stay required little guesswork as we settled into our accommodations. The children loved the pool and the setup was such that we were able to entertain our Tuscon friends in the area in reciprocation for their hospitality.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Wonderful place for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at Hacienda del Mayar. The house was quite comfortable, and provided great space for our entire family gathering (5 adults and 4 children). We really appreciated having four full bathrooms with that many people. The house was very clean and was well equipped even for our large group. Our grandkids enjoyed the spa and pool. One day they spent six hours in the pool - we had to drag them out.

The location is terrific. Felt like we were out in the country, but a new Safeway grocery store, Walgreens, and restaurants were less than 10 minutes away. BTW, we liked Saguaro Corners for bar food (burgers, etc., and a great beer selection). The views from the house are spectacular; one morning there was a gorgeous red sky at sunrise. We took photos that could be mistaken for sales brochure material. Hiking trails and an entrance to the park (Saguaro National Park East) are within a couple miles so it was easy for us to get out and explore.

Last but not least, we were so impressed with Karine’s responsiveness and helpfulness. An example; the microwave died on the day before Easter. Even though we told Karine not to worry about it until after the holiday, her husband came over to check it out and Karine followed up to buy a new one on Easter and have it installed on Monday. She is fantastic!

We would definitely come back. In fact, we tried to reserve for next year, but our dates were already taken.

A Sunny Delightful Place to Escape the Seattle Rai

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and spacious. The master bedroom was the largest bedroom I've ever slept in. My husband and I stayed there with another couple friend. There was more than enough space for all of us and it was close enough to town to go exploring. There were amazing hikes within a couple minutes drive. The hot tub was very relaxing. The owner was extremely kind and responsive. I highly recommend this property!

Incredible home with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed our stay at Hacienda Del Mayar. The home was incredible and they offered all the amenities we needed. We've stayed at several VRBO properties in the last 10 years, and my entire family agrees - we definitely received the BEST value for our money. We can't say enough about the owner Karine - she is a true gem! We were so impressed with her kindness, generosity and attention to detail - that it will be hard to find another VRBO owner/property as impressive as this. The Saguaro National Park offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and the most sensational views. Tucson is a great city with easy access, and we definitely were able to get the full experience of shopping, restaurants and local sight-seeing. Our family doesn't get enough opportunities to travel together, but when we do, we want a home that is a "home-away-from-home". Hacienda Del Mayar gave us a wonderful family memory which we will cherish. Thank you Karine!

Wonderful Family Vacation Hacienda

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house. We came with 3 couples and a 19 month old child in January 2018, escaping the snow up north. We loved virtually everything about the house. It is definitely worthy of a return visit.

The big family room opening up into the kitchen caught our attention first. We like to have several nights where we prepare our own eat-in dinners. The kitchen was roomy enough for 3 or 4 of us to move around without crowding. The kitchen was well equipped. The coffee / beverage counter is on the wall a few steps away, giving us lots of room. Good large dining table, and another table that became our game table. Comfortable couches for a conversation pit, and a big screen TV that we rarely used. It allowed us to be together and still have space. (And there were some toys on site for the baby to play with, high chair, and porta-crib, a great bonus.)

We loved the size of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of space and privacy if you want it. We liked the deck and porch. In January, only a couple of days were warm enough to really enjoy them properly. We did not swim due to the temperature, but we did enjoy the hot tub. The grounds were clean and well maintained.

Hiking in the National Forest was just a couple of minutes drive away. There are some easy trails, and some more challenging trails. We also enjoyed just walking down some of the nearby gravel roads. The scenery is so different from the mid-west.

We had intended to rent some bicycles for the week, but decided not to. It is a good area for a serious biker, less so for casual bikers.

When we had questions, the owner replied quickly. (A nice change from some other places we have rented.) And of course, the house was wonderfully clean when we showed up.

We were further out from downtown Tucson than I originally thought, but still went into town a couple of times. We would especially recommend the Tucson Desert Museum, west of town, as being worth a day trip (especially with kids).

Finally, we enjoyed how the hacienda was decorated. Southwest, with a touch of whimsy. There were nice touches everywhere we looked, and each of the bedrooms was unique.
