About the Property
Sleeps 6. 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 2000 square feet.
Your vacation starts with a very well appointed, fully furnished home. I have taken the time to provide you the things that make a house a home. Luxurious beds and linens, Direct TVs, hi-speed wireless Internet, washer, dryer, and a well equipped kitchen await you. As you move to the outside, the beautiful panoramic view of the Catalina Mountains serve as a backdrop for your private, saltwater pool & spa, outdoor dining, BBQ grill, covered patio, and elevated sun deck. Inside or out - life is but a dream.
As the owner of this home, I wanted to create a haven for myself and my family. Coming from Alaska, I find that Tucson not only warms my body, but my heart and soul. I come to rejuvenate, relax, and shed the burdens of daily life; and, let the calmness of the desert embrace me. It truly is my Desert Dream.
Things to Do: Enjoy hiking and biking the numerous mountain and city trails, or experience world class golf at one of the numerous golf clubs sprinkled throughout Tucson. Maybe you'd like to watch the desert bloom in the Spring! Or see the Arizona Diamondbacks during their Major League Spring Baseball Training. Come on down for the famous Tucson Gem & Mineral show, or visit the local wildlife and gardens at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (my personal favorite!). Need more ideas: Tombstone, The Copper Creek Mine, Reid Park Zoo, Aircraft Boneyard, Biosphere II, and the beautiful 1700 Spanish Mission: San Xavier del Bac (another personal favorite of mine!). Want to cool off? See Tucson underground via Kartchner Caverns State Park or Colossal Cave Mountain Park. Or just stay home and plunge into the salt water pool, or enjoy a relaxing massage from the spa. Afterall, it is your 'Desert Dream.'
Where to eat.: Ahhhh...where to eat? How do I begin? Do you head down to the University area and taste all of the sandwich shops and exotic fare? Or go downtown for Cafe Poco Cosa - imaginative Mexican cuisine? Or hit the nearby Thunder Canyon Brewery or World Sports Grill? The J Bar Lounge or La Pasada for happy hour with a view. Hit La Encantada Mall for Ra (sushi), NoRTH (modern Italian cuisine), Blancos (tacos & tequila), Blue Fin (seafood) and you can always pop into AJ's (excellent fine foods grocer). For the best pancakes in town, you've got to drive down to BoBo's - the all American greasy spoon. Try Frank's for breakfast with an attitude. Viavace is always a top dining choice. Number #1 choice for the ladies - choose from Sauce or Wildflower. And don't forget your own backyard. Fire up the BBQ and have some steaks on the grill.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Living in Alaska for 30 years, it was time for me to find a place to warm up and feel the sun in my face. Currently travel and teach classes & workshops for meditation, crystals, essential oils, and more!
Why the Owner Chose Bluffs, Casas Adobes, Arizona, United States of America:
When I visited Tucson, I fell instantly in love! With an abundant amount of sunshine almost daily, the beauty of the surrounding mountains, the desert plant life, and the amazing wildlife - it was easy to choose Tucson as my vacation destination, and then as my home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has been crystal gridded for easy releasing of stress, family harmony, relaxation, and joy! Time and again I received emails sharing that the families had plans to tour the city, and fell so much in love with the property they decided to stay and enjoy the pool and the view!
