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

We had a lovely time at La Hacienda del Mayar. We especially had a blast seeing all of the birds and other wildlife around the property. As soon as we set foot in the backyard, we saw Gambel's quail and a pair of great horned owls. We saw coyotes and Harris's hawks in the neighborhood on a regular basis, and tons of other desert birds. The place was spacious and clean, the kitchen was well-stocked, and Karin was so cordial and helpful even before we arrived. You can walk one mile to a trailhead that leads into Saguaro National Park.
Wonderful home--for the holidays!
With use of the casita, this property fit 11 of us nicely. Beautiful views, with glorious sunrises and sunsets. The hot tub was relaxing at the end of the day. The fenced yard was great for the 3 yo to be outside, running around. The Children's Museum downtown was enjoyed by all--youngsters as well as oldsters. Spotted a phainopepla in the bushes on the property and a lesser nighthawk flew overhead! Was close to hiking trails as well. The kitchen is well appointed--making Thanksgiving dinner a breeze. Enjoyed our stay immensely.
Wonderful place to stay.
Myself and 5 friends stayed at Hacienda Del Mayar for a week while we were in town for a dog show. Karine was very easy to work with and very accommodating. The back yard was snake proof fenced and the dogs loved having a place to run and exercise after being cooped up from the long drive and the long days at the dog show. The house was exquisite and absolutely beautiful. All of the small touches of small hidden paintings and art work were lovely and great fun to find. The house is huge but is very comfortable and very welcoming. The vase of fresh flowers and chocolates on the table were a very pleasant surprise and enjoyed by all. If you're looking for a place to stay in Tucson area, You can't go wrong here. The pool was large and well kept. Unfortunately, we only had half a day to enjoy the pool. We never had a chance to try the hot tub. The grounds were very well kept, the yard was raked and clean. The inside of the house was spotless and dustless.
My only complaint, which is very, very minor, is that the "3" on the mail box needs to be repainted so it shows up better. I missed the turn the first time because the 3 was faded out. Other than that, the directions were easy to follow and everything worked great. Thank you for allowing us to share this lovely hacienda.
My wife and I decided to extend our stay in Tuscon after multiple days in a hotel. We found this VRBO property late afternoon and contacted Karine to check availability for a week stay beginning the following day. Karine responded promptly and arrangements were made even though she was currently traveling in Europe.
The entire process was quick and seemless. Karine provided tons of information about property and surrounding area which was extremely useful.
The property was lovely and the hacienda was very nice and well stocked with everything you would need to prepare meals or enjoy time in the pool or spa.
Property is private and was just what my wife and I were looking for to relax and enjoy another fantastic week in Tuscon. Bird watching during the day, and star gazing at night to the music of nature was just what we needed. Thank you!
8 Guys Golf Trip
Super hot the week we were there so the pool was much appreciated and well used. The hot tub also a big highlight. Managed to sleep 8 grown men, and we had a wonderful time at this nicely secluded property. Karine was very helpful with all questions answered promptly and even though she had an emergency to get to in Europe, she made sure someone filled in to look after us. Hope all turned out okay Karine and thanks for the use of your wonderful place.
