Enjoy the Moon Rising..Over the Santa Rita's Desert Casitas

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 30 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This casita is an upgraded vacation type rental with gorgeous views of the Santa Rita Mountains. Watch the sunrise in the morning as you drink your coffee on our expanded, tiled veranda. Follow the moon as it creates spectacular vistas at the end of a fun-filled day over the calm expanse of Green Valley. Find serenity in a glass of wine and a good book, welcome friends, or lose yourself in the sheer beauty of nature as the Santa Rita Mountains change colors at sunset.

The casita has been recently renovated with new furniture and appliances. Right in the heart of Green Valley, you will be close to shopping and all the amenities, yet able to enjoy the calm and peace of a small town feel. The Kitt Observatory sits at the top of the Santa Rita's watching over the valley and like the astronomers you will be amazed at the clarity of the Milky Way right from your own back door.

Madiera Canyon is a short 30 minutes away and boasts as the home of numerous species of hummingbirds and many hiking trails. The flourishing art center of Tubac is minutes south, while swimming, biking, golf - the list is endless - lays at your fingertips.

About Linda and Richard De Clerck

Richard and Linda De Clerck have traveled to many special areas of the world! But we chose Green Valley as our home away from home!! We live in West Linn, Oregon. We enjoy the peace and relaxation that the Casita lifestyle provides. We trust you will feel the same about Green Valley!!

Linda and Richard De Clerck purchased this condo in 2009

What makes this condo unique

In addition to the outside beautiful sun and moon rises, the antics of the hummingbirds, and the blooming of the desert landscaping, we have recently purchased a new 42' TV for your indoor entertainment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've been so busy since we got back, I haven't had a chance to tell you how much we enjoyed your place in Green Valley!!! It was EVERYTHING we could have expected and more!!!! We had to be torn away if the truth be told!! The birds got Steve and Jill both out of bed hours earlier than they planned, they didn't want to miss a second. We set up the hummingbird feeder and got some great video on the digital camera. We got some firelogs and burned one every night! Javalina came out about 8:45 to 9:15. We saw at least 12 at a time, and one had a little baby piglet! It was SO cute!!! I know from the damage they have done to my grandfathers yard that they can be a pain, but this was just like being in a Nat Geo special!!! Two of them came up the west side of your home and walked right by us only feet away. It was really great!

And you have the place decorated just beautifully. Mac was a real sweetheart as well!! We even had my mom and grandfather over for a steak dinner one night. Grampy loved it!

I can't thank you enough for the joy your place brought to all of us. It was just like being at home! And I think we are going to save up to buy a Vizio TV like yours, it was incredible!!!

Take care and have a great Christmas, God be with you and yours.

Great little casita just south of Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Spotless casita in southern Arizona perfect for a solo traveller or a couple. Communication with Linda was great. Has everything you need for a short or extended stay, including a very well stocked kitchen, A/C, and onsite washer and dryer. For a small fee you can access several local pools and fitness centres. Easy access to Madera Canyon for hikers/birders and plenty of wildlife on or near the property. Shopping and dining options within minutes' drive. Blissfully quiet!

I enjoyed my time at Linda's property. It was clean, and nicely furnished with all the necessary items, towels, soap, etc to make your stay like home. The view from the patio was great for morning coffee. It rained every afternoon I was there so didn't get to enjoy the evenings. I would stay there again and would refer the property any of my friends.
