About Tony Marotta
I have lived in Tucson since 1982. Originally from southern New Jersey. I am a handy guy, so the home is very well kept up inside and outside. I am very available if needed with a simple text or call. I want groups to have a great time and enjoy your stay!
Tony Marotta purchased this House in 1985
Why Tony Marotta chose Tucson
Me and my parents bought this property in 1985 as it had such a great feel, land, pool and views. The main house was completely remodeled and 900 sq ft was added in 2006. The main house is the rental home, the guest house is used for storage and houses the wifi. There is a helpful "cheat sheet" to help with many of the features and instructions for pool, hot tub, switches, close restaurants, etc. As of 2015, there is a 40 inch HD TV outside with viewing from just about all of the pool yard and Jacuzzi.
What makes this House unique
Very private yet close to downtown and University area. It has many of the original "Charming Burnt Adobe" walls, where they could be left during remodeling. Everything is modern and tiled throughout! Views are great and the Koi pond attracts all types of wildlife particularly birds and some hawks and eagles! Hummingbird feeders in the front attract them year round!

Perfect for our family visit.
I liked the fact that I could have full use of the area. The owner stopped by, gave us a quick tour of the home and showed us all that we needed to enjoy our stay.
Seclusion in urban Tucson
Though close to everything, Tony's home in Tucson gives the impression of seclusion. It is peaceful with multiple outdoor seating locations to enjoy the local flora and fauna. Tony himself is an attentive owner with a charming personality. This was a great retreat for our entire family and we would recommend it to anyone visiting the Tucson area in March.
when we arrived at property Tony was ther to greet us an go over the logistics of property such as remotes for lights and tv ect. the home was everything we expected, quiet secluded and wonderful view of the city. The home has a spacious back patio which includes a hot tube and pool. with three different sitting areas its easy to have that private time you might be looking for. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. I would definitely stay at this property again. Thanks Tony.
You and the family are very welcome Thomas.
It was my pleasure having you here in Tucson and nice that you were able to visit family and have them over to the home for a BBQ.
Thanks so much and I do hope to see you next year.
Cockroaches and zero privacy!
This is a “Luxury home” for cockroaches! As soon as we checked in we noticed cockroaches all throughout the kitchen, in the drawers with the utensils and pots and pans, dishwasher, anywhere you looked! A couple days later he came and sprayed after displacing us from the home. The next day we were still seeing roaches, the spray did absolutely nothing and he offered to spray again. We told him his original spray did nothing and he needs a professional. He reluctantly agreed and wanted us to be out of the house again. We asked for compensation for one night so we could get a hotel room because we have a 7 month old crawling throughout the house. He would not allow any compensation for us to be out of the house for the second time. We weren’t staying there for a night or two, we were staying for a month! Tony had zero empathy for our situation and the well being of our child. What a nice way to treat your renters.
Zero privacy what so ever. The owners of the home have a separate apartment attached to the same back patio as ours, which looks out on to the pool and jacuzzi. How can you feel comfortable outside under the stars while you can hear their tv in the backround? Also, they will come right out while you’re sunbathing or having time with your family/ guests and have a 20-30 minute conversation about themselves.
The area in general is not a safe area. At the end of the street we saw 7 cop cars due to an assault and bullet casings on the end of the driveway.
This property is the definition of false advertisement. You can stay in a lot of different places in and around Tucson so do your self a favor and find something other than this!
First let me state that there was no mention of an infant in the initial inquiry just adults! This made me curious about this group and my suspicions were right!
A group prior to this one must have brought some roaches in with cases of water, firewood or luggage so I immediately treated the home on a changeover. Once spotted again I did everything needed to eradicate them and they were gone in 24-36 hours. There have been 4 more groups in the house since then and have seen none! THERE ARE NO ROACHES IN THIS HOME! There could not be to achieve all of these great 5 star reviews. This young man is just very mad because he could not get any money out of me as I offered everything to fix the problem, he refused all efforts.
I have owned this home for 32 years and know all of my neighbors and this talk of a police action is totally delusional, absurd and placed on here just to hurt me.
This young man is lying and extremely exaggerating here so please beware of him.
Please do not let this very skewed review deter you from renting this beautiful home!!
3 sisters, two spouses and a niece and nephew. Very roomy, had everything we needed. Used hot tub but too chilly to use pool. Great proximity to U of A, groceries, restaurants, etc. Not fancy but comfortable. Would stay again.
Our best vacation rental to date!
We had such a wonderful time at Tony's place! Everything was perfect. Three of the bedrooms have sliding glass door that go right out onto the covered patio. The view is spectacular and the property is very private. The kitchen was well stocked and because we cooked so much food for Thanksgiving, we didn't eat out once during our week there. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and because of the record-breaking November temperatures, several people in our party even swam in the pool. There were plenty of towels for the three bathrooms, pool and hot tub. We were able to do our laundry throughout our stay which enabled us to pack light and save on checked bag fees. Tony was available any time we had a question or a need and could not have been a friendlier host. We will definitely stay here again in the future!
