This was the rental we chose for a sister's getaway to Tucson. It had everything we needed and we had a delightful time! Clean, nicely furnished, and comfortable beds! Couldn't ask for more! Thanks Jon and Sue!

We will go back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous VRBO. We will be back. Situated next to the Tucson Mountain Park, the hiking possibilities are endless. The house itself is very nice and clean, and lives up to its pictures. Beauty and wildlife are all around. We used this as a home base to do things on the west side of Tucson including going to the mission nearby, the Buenas Aires Wildlife Refuge (an hour south), to Tubac, and to the Sonoran Desert Museum. We also loved just spending time on the patio watching birds and bunnies. The owners and local manager are very nice and welcoming.

Birder's Delight

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful 2 weeks in this desert home. The house is lovely and the hosts were very accommodating. The location is great for relaxing, hiking, and sightseeing. I am an avid birder and the yard birds were a delight! We enjoyed walking out the door to hike in Tucson Mt. Park. We hope to come back next winter.

You won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a sunny Sunday afternoon to a wonderland of wildlife, a spectacular mountain view, and a spotless, cozy home, a perfect escape from the frozen north. We hiked every morning in the park, the trailhead just a 2-minute walk from our front door. We watched javalinas run through the yard, quail, dove, and bunnies graze on birdseed in the backyard, and any number of cactus and canyon wrens, woodpeckers, and flickers and hawks visit "our" saguaro and feeders. We loved having morning fires in the fireplace and evening sunsets on the patio. We were so close to the Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park (not to be missed) and felt the house met our every need. Golden Gate Mountain put on a show for us every sunrise, and we were even treated to a rainbow one morning. A truly perfect place to spend as much time as you can, and you'll leave wishing for more. Thank you, Sue and Jon and Jill!

wow - really incredible location and home

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular, quiet, exquisite location. Literally 50 feet from the front door, you can hike into raw desert that is loaded with beautiful hiking trails. Right near Saguaro National Park and the Desert Museum (a must see). I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The home has a slightly open floorplan with some openings near the ceiling between the living room and bedroom (probably for air flow), so sound carries easily. If you plan to travel just as a couple, will work out fine. With a larger group, you'll want to be sure everyone is on the same noise level agreement. :)

The photo showing the back yard is totally accurate. We spent lots of time watching birds right out the window. Saw an owl one night, loads of hummingbirds, and much more.

Home is very well-appointed and spacious. Couldn't recommend this more highly.
