To the east are the majestic Catalina Mountains and to the North the Totolita Mountains. There is no better view of the sunset from any other spot in the whole of Tucson or better place to barbecue than on the patio. The Ranchita feels like you are out in the wide open desert, but you are in town and just minutes from shopping and fine dining. COME ENJOY YOUR STAY.

GOLF AND HIKING: Tucson is known for its great weather, which accommodates every outdoor activity imaginable. FOR THE GOLFER: Golf on one of the many public or private golf courses, such as Arthur Pack Golf Courts, which is less than 10 minutes away.

Car: Recommended

NW Tucson on the border of Oro Valley and Marana. In town - so shopping malls, theaters, other entertainment, and fine dining are minutes away. Easy access to freeway: 20 minutes to downtown (gem and mineral show) and University of Arizona; minutes from shopping, golf courses (public and private), fine dining and entertainment; 30 minutes to Tucson International Airport and 1.5 hours to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport; 1 or 2 hrs by freeway to surrounding rural communities of Rio Rico, Green Valley, Benson, Sonoita, Tombstone, Bisbee, Douglas, and Nogales, Arizona, and Mexico. Great hiking and horse venues nearby at Catalina State Park and Saguaro National Monument. Horse accommodations available on the Ranchita.

Other Activities: Hiking


Owner info

About the owner: My little Ranchita suits me just fine. It seems like I am out in the big wide open desert, but I am really in town, with all the big-city conveniences at my fingertips.

Why the Owner Chose Ranchitos Palos Verdes, Tortolita, AZ, USA:
My children are grown and moved away. I can't imagine leaving this wonderful place. I have downsized downstairs so to speak, turning the upstairs into private rooms. Come share my little ranchita. You will love it as much as I do.
