Why Madeleine chose Tucson & Southern Arizona

This house is nested at the foothills of the beautiful Catalina Mountains, dominated by the famous Mt Lemmon. The 300+ days of sunshine per year along with the luxurious Saddlebrooke lifestyle make it an ideal vacation spot and retirement area. The dry and warm weather is highly appreciated by snowbirds!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have totally enjoyed our first few days at Casa MaLou. We particularly appreciate the ease with which we can cook (all the right tools), the cleanliness of the home and the thoughtful and complete instructions left for us.

Casa Malou

  • 5 of 5

Our stay has been excellent. As experienced (and fussy) long term renters, we have never encountered a property more ready for occupancy. The house was immaculate, instructions for operation were provided, and everything was in perfect working order. We appreciated the attention to detail. The owners are both communicative and responsive. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Great January

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with a longer-term home rental and it was fantastic! We enjoyed the month of January 2016, even with record-breaking snow on one day. This Saddlebrooke home is gorgeous with an amazing mountain view to greet you every morning. The home is well stocked with essential items (cookware, laundry, linens, outdoor grill, etc.) to make your stay not only pleasant but easy. The owners were thoughtful and available. We enjoyed the amenities of a fitness center, exercise classes, library, interesting speakers and restaurants at the Saddlebrooke club, which is within walking distance. The location is great to enjoy outings in the Tucson area, from Biosphere 2 and the Oracle Patio Cafe to the Desert Museum, Jazz Festival and hiking in Catalina State Park (only a few miles away). Access to shopping is also very close to the house. It was very peaceful to hang around the house or to get away and enjoy all that the area has to offer. We would highly recommend this as a wonderful place to enjoy Tucson and Saddlebrooke.

Casa Malou

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time during January and February 2015 staying in your lovely Saddlebrooke home. We enjoyed the ammenities of fitness center, exercise classes, bicycles, restaurants, library, etc. and the fabulous Catalina views. We also liked the proximity to many of the activities in Tucson. This is a great location! Hiking in Catalina State Park and Honey Bee Canyon is really close.

The house itself is a very relaxing and comfortable place with everything to make you feel at home. We alternated 'sight-seeing' days with lazy days just hanging around and enjoyed both.

I would certainly recommend this as a quality rental property.

Casa Malou

  • 5 of 5

We spent February and March, 2014 at Casa Malou. We would definitely rent this home again next year but had already made other plans. The home is quite lovely and well-appointed, the yard is nicely landscaped, and the mountain view is mesmerizing. The house was very clean and comfortable. In addition, the owners were very helpful and always available to us. We especially enjoy hiking, and there are many beautiful trails nearby.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in your beautiful home at Saddlebrooke. We took advantage of your bicycles almost daily and made good use of the fitness center and pool nearby.

The backyard has a gorgeous view of Mount Lemon and the Catalina Mountains, and was the perfect spot to relax and do some reading. Good hiking trails and excellent golf courses kept us busy, and the great weather really helped.

We followed up on some of your suggestions, with a nice lunch at The Preserve and a great show at the Desert View Performing Arts Center.

Thanks very much, and we hope to be able to return in the future.

Wonderful Southwestern Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa MaLou was exactly what we had hoped for. The home is beautifully decorated, well-equipped, and comfortable. We particularly appreciated the kitchen, with absolutely everything we needed to cook our meals, and also the patio where we were able to sit, relax, and enjoy the amazing view. The beds were comfortable and we were walking distance to the Desert View pool and fitness center. The owners were very easy to work with, and they provided excellent information about the home as well as nearby restaurants and activities. To top it off, the weather was perfect for our stay. All in all, Casa MaLou was a great home away from home for us, and we are looking forward to our upcoming stay.
