About Steve & Susan

I have lived in this area many years and love the peaceful surroundings. This property was originally built for my father who pasted away before he had a chance to enjoy it. The many compliments we have received from friends and family members is what encouraged us to make it a vacation destination. We hope you feel the same way about Tucson as we do after a relaxing stay!

Steve & Susan purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

While spending time at this perfect retreat, watch for desert wildlife, take a relaxing stroll, grill at the outside kitchen and enjoy dinner by the patio fireplace, or play a few rounds of golf at nearby Starr Pass, El Rio or Silverbell Courses. Silverbell Golf Course is within walking distance!

Guestbook comments from the owner

January 17, 2014

The rental was beautifully decorated, spacious and well equipped, light filled and airy. Very clean, well maintained, and up-to-date. The views were superb from the enormous deck, inviting al fresco dining. From this location, one could choose from nearby trailheads for superb hikes. Far enough from the bustle to really appreciate the natural surroundings. Access to the downtown was easy on the lesser traveled roads. Very comfortable with a true southwestern feel, and all the amenities.

A jewel of a location for seeing the greater Tucson area!

  • 4 of 5

Steve and Susan were wonderful hosts and they did everything within their control to make our stay a joy. Having access to a garage was an added benefit. One cannot overstate the value of the rental location in traveling to Oro Valley, Green Valley and even northeast Tucson (for golfers this was of immense value).

This unit is most comfortable and convenient. It's like being in your own home.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect property for our family of two grandparents, a daughter and son-in-law, and 18 month old grandson. The unit is beautiful and includes all the necessities. Steve and Susan were so kind as to provide both a high chair and crib for our grandson so we didn't have to lug one them along from Iowa. When I asked for a slow cooker, Susan was happy and most gracious to supply one. The unit provides beautiful evening views of the city, and the balcony is a pleasant place to wind down with drinks, appetizers and an outdoor meal after a full day of sight-seeing. The unit is conveniently located to the university and also to tourist attractions. The steps to the unit could be a problem for some people, especially in terms of moving in and moving out, but my 69 year-old artificial knees were able to negotiate the stairs on a daily basis with no trouble. I would highly recommend this unit to others and would not hesitate to go back. In fact, we hope to next year.

Great Location, Thoughtful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well-appointed guest unit. Spacious, attractively furnished and surrounded by nature. Watch for rabbits, road runners and horseback riders in the mornings and coyotes in the evenings. The kitchen and baths are roomy and exceptionally well-equipped. In-room laundry is a big plus. Because the unit sits above a four car garage there is plenty of privacy and no need to tiptoe. As a bonus, parking in the garage was offered, with remote. The pleasant hosts are on-site and very respectful of guest's privacy. Oh, and did I mention that big, comfy nest of a bed? Just what we needed after a long day at the Gem Shows. The deck affords privacy so that doors can be left open without feeling exposed. The only caveat that I would offer is that the stairs are steep and wouldn't be appropriate for those with mobility issues.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The home was in a really convenient neighborhood. It is close to downtown Tucson, Saguaro West National Park, the Desert Museum, the freeway and good eating spots. It was very spacious.vews from the big deck were great in several directions. The kitchen was well equipped and roomy. It was very nice of the owners to allow us to park our car in the garage under the rental. They were accommodating whenever we had issues. We thought that there were a couple of things that needed updating: the master bed was very soft, hard to get in and out of and high for 70+ year olds, the front door from the deck needed a new lock, the barbeque did not work very well even after the owner worked on it. Nevertheless, the home was a fun location for the 4 of us from Minnesota. It was fun watching the coyotes from the deck walk up and down the road!
