Nice location

  • 2 of 5

Stayed at this property nice location conda is roomy. The owner needs to do some upkeep. The mattresses are old and worn out. The couch is patio furniture with sunbrella cushions and the one chair is also worn out. Best of all the owner controls your heat and air conditioning from his phone. The only reviews I could find were from three years ago

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Positive and negative reviews are a good way for us to receive feedback. We have already ordered a new mattress and sofa which should be installed in April. I was puzzled by the thermostat comment. Perhaps just a misunderstanding? The guest requested that I turn on the air conditioner for combined heating and cooling during February. I was able to log on to the NEST thermostat remotely to make the change as requested.

Quiet cosy condo!

  • 5 of 5

This second floor condo overlooks the bed of the Rillito River and the walking/biking paths along its banks. Its windows and large balcony are facing south making for a light and sunny apartment.The balcony is a great asset allowing observation not only of birds and raptors, but also of beautiful sunsets in the great western sky. The condo is very quiet since the parking area and garbage containers are on the opposite side of the building.

The condo is well-equipped and maintained. You do not need to bring your laptop since an office with computer and laser printer is available.

The owners have their office within walking distance.They respond rapidly to requests and are very helpful.

As described in previous reviews, the location is excellent, on the boundary between the city of Tucson and the foothills of the Catalina mountains and close to attractive shopping and dining areas.

We have rented various apartments in Tucson every year since 1993 and can highly recommend this one.

Wonderful Place and People

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our five-week stay in this condo. The location on the Rillito River walk is excellent -- shopping, dining, and athletic clubs are all within walking distance. The condo has plenty of space, is well equipped, and nicely decorated. The folks who own and manage the place couldn't be more helpful. When we asked questions or needed something, they responded immediately.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at Rio Del Sol. We were so happy with this condo. It is beautifully decorated and has everything we wanted and more. The kitchen was well equipped for the meals we had there. The refrigerator was stocked with water for our stay. We loved being able to walk to St. Phillips Square for dining, the farmers market, and an art show, We like to bike and enjoyed having several bikes to chose from in the garage. We used the trail outside the condo for both biking and walking. During our stay we visited the Biosphere 2, Sabino Canyon, Mt. Lemon and the Sonora

Desert Museum. We also went to a Cactus League game. This was a perfect home base for our travels.

Top Condo in Tucson!

  • 5 of 5

We (two retired couples) recently spent the month of March in this wonderful condo on the Riverwalk in Tucson. What a great experience! The condo was beautifully furnished, beds were very comfortable, lots of extra linens and towels were available - top quality! The kitchen was great - equipped with everything we needed to cook with - knives (sharp ones too!), coffee grinder, blender, spices, etc. The den had a computer and internet available and we used it alot to book tickets, check out new restaurants, and just keep in touch via email - very nice to have this available for our use.

The real bonus was being right on the Riverwalk! The men would walk the half mile to St. Phillips plaza every morning for their coffee. The women would walk later in the day to the Trader Joe's to shop. On the weekends there was a terrific (Sunday was best day) farmers market in the plaza where we bought fresh produce, home made breads and tortillias, cheeses and other treats.

The condo compex had very nice amenities - we used the heated pool (short walk from the condo) almost every day - such a treat! There was a very nice fitness center there also (which we did NOT use!). But the best feature was being right on the Riverwalk!

It was a real pleasure dealing with the owner, John. When we first arrived I noticed that the advertised DVD player and blender were not in the condo. I emailed John and within several hours we had a new blender and DVD player delivered and installed by his son! Great service!

I would highly recommend this condo - it was so comfortable and we just hated to leave at the end of the month - would be back next March if it weren't for conflicts in schedules next year. We really loved staying at the condo, and exploring Tucson - a great time was had by all!!

The Tucson River Walk is a wonderful place for walking or biking. The best local farmer's market is held on Saturday and Sunday morning and is a short stroll along the River Walk. The Tucson Racquet and Swim Club is a short distance the opposite direction. Great dining is within half a mile.
