The majestic Sonoran Desert is breathtaking and perfect for biking, hiking or just relaxing and taking in the surrounding beauty. Enjoy the private setting with incredible views while maintaining a close proximity to shopping, great restaurants and some of the best golf Tucson has to offer.

COURTYARD

Open the gate to the serenity of the front courtyard, perfect for enjoying your morning tea, curling up with a book, or sharing intimate dinners. The soothing fountain, whimsical hummingbirds, comfortable furnishings, and magical evening lighting offer unique solitude and a calm hideaway.

INTERIOR SPACES

Once inside the villa, you will be enthralled by the spacious great room with polished concrete floors, high beamed ceilings and impressive custom woodwork throughout. With its championship billiard table, 60-inch flat screen, Bose surround sound and the latest media choices, this great room offers countless entertainment options.

Discerning cooks will feel inspired in the fully equipped kitchen, outfitted on par with a primary residence complete with stocked spice cabinet, and a full compliment of gadgetry, small appliances and even china place settings. No detail has been spared.

The striking king master suite is beautifully appointed and includes a small office work space, views of the Catalina Mountains and direct access to the covered patio, hot tub and swimming pool. The master bath provides a large walk-in shower with dual heads and separate soaking tub perfect for indoor relaxation.

The master suite and three equally charming guest rooms all include flat screen TVs with DishTV/Hopper DVR access and Blu-ray DVD players.

Bed arrangement includes: Master Bedroom - King, 'Tahoe Bedroom' - King, 'Southwest Bedroom' - Queen, and 'Route 66 Bedroom' - 1 Queen & 1 Full.

OUTDOOR SPACES

While the home's interior is very comfortably furnished and equipped, Arizona life is all about the outdoors. Enjoy the exquisite weather year-round from the expansive outdoor living spaces including fully furnished covered patios, spa and heated swimming pool with natural boulder water feature just steps away.

Lose yourself in the surrounding beauty, sunning in the lagoon or napping on the covered pool-side Bali Bed by day; or gazing at the city lights while gathered around the gas fire feature by night. This Sonoran outdoor oasis is sure to captivate with its surrounding desert wildlife and beauty.

Transportation Notes: the route to Casa Campana includes a very short (1/8th mile) segment of flat, compacted gravel road between our lane and the city street. This is not unusual for the area. If arriving by recreational vehicle, an RV space with electric hook-up is provided.

It is our sincere pleasure to welcome you to Casa Campana.

About Mark & Susan

We purchased this property after falling in love with Southern Arizona, its desert beauty, and the wonderful year-round weather. Being long-time Seattle area residents, it has been a welcome respite from the damp northwest winters. The weather here cannot be beat!

We enjoy all that Arizona has to offer - abundant golf, tennis, hiking, wildlife, cuisine, and most of all, Sunshine!!

We enjoy visiting as often as possible, for both needed R&R as a couple, as well as with extended family to reconnect. It is our hope that our guests come to love the property, amenities, and ambiance as much as we do.

Mark & Susan purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark & Susan chose Tucson

This property was chosen due to its uniqueness, privacy, and tranquil setting in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Unlike many vacation rental homes situated in dense neighborhoods, our guests enjoy significant privacy in a quiet peaceful suburban ranch environment (3+ acre and larger properties).

After an extensive on-line and in-person search, this home (later named Casa Campana – or ‘Bell House’) was the clear choice for these and many other factors that hopefully guests will experience and come to love for themselves.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this property include the pristine desert setting, abundant privacy and open space, many custom details inside and out, and the overall peacefulness it exudes.

Although the existing custom home provided a good starting point, we spent over a year developing the overall property into a premier vacation destination drawing on our experiences traveling to small boutique resorts in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Those reference points contributed to adding just the right furnishings, amusements, relaxation options, and luxury amenities to make Casa Campana an exceptional experience. This applies equally for those vacationing as families, as we do with our own young adult children, or as couples seeking rest and tranquility.

Many guests have commented that their time at Casa Campana was like a retreat at their own personal, private resort. We couldn't agree more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our three weeks at Casa de Campana. The pool and spa are lovely - no need to leave the villa. The welcome package was delightful and a very nice touch - made us feel very welcome. Thank you.

best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented dozens of VRBOs and AirBnbs over the years and this place was far and away the nicest, best cared for, most completely appointed home we have ever seen. It is every bit as lovely as the pictures, and the sunsets are amazing. The kitchen was fantastic, with very high-end appliances, knives, and table settings. The beds were fantastic, the linens were brand new, the pool toys were new, the outside sitting areas had new furniture....everything was amazing. Thanks so much!

Fabulous Tucson property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just booked our 4th straight year at Casa Campana, and I can honestly say it is my most favorite place to visit. First, the house itself is absolutely gorgeous and sits on ~3.5 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac, which means the surroundings are reliably quiet and serene. There are lovely covered patios both at the back and the front of the house with the mountains in the background, and each is very tastefully decorated in beautiful, comfortable furnishings. Beyond the covered area in the back is a magnificent pool, surrounded by lovely cacti and flowering plants that attract lots of butterflies—all immaculately maintained. Everything inside and outside the home is absolutely first quality, and there is not one thing I would not love to own myself. In addition to the comfortable surroundings, there are many unexpected surprises that enhance the environment and truly make it magical. There are gorgeous fountains all around, and at night there are colorful lights hanging from the tress all around the property, in addition to the professional lighting around the pool, fountains, and plantings—it is truly enchanting. We have rented many houses through Home Away and other sites, and often the photographs of the properties do not live up to expectations once you arrive. In the case of Case Campana, the actual home and property are even more beautiful than portrayed in the photos. We also find that the location in Marana is extremely convenient—we love that the whole area is very uncongested, but it has a wonderful supermarket very close-by in addition to the amenities at the Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain. It is also quick and easy to get into downtown Tucson or to Highway 10. Finally, I would like to say a word about the owners, Mark and Susan. Each guest receives an extremely generous “goody bag,” which has included tasty treats and snacks, a very nice bottle of wine, monogramed hot/cold cups, the bag itself, and various other goodies. Mark is extremely helpful in explaining the impressive electronics and how everything works. And, he is always available via email or text during your stay if you have any questions at all. Mark and Susan could not be more generous and accommodating hosts, who will do everything possible to ensure you enjoy your stay. It is truly rare to find a home with such quality items throughout that is available to rent—I could not recommend this property more highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. The beauty, peace and solitude you mentioned are among the many reasons we also love the property and why it is so hard to leave when our time is up. Along with our wonderful crew, we work hard to ensure all our guests have a wonderful experience at 'the Casa' and leave wanting more. Your return for a fourth time speaks volumes and we couldn't be happier to continue hosting you. Thank you.

50th Birthday in Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Alexa: how do you find the perfect place to stay with friends and family for a group vacation? Stay at Casa Campagna! Mark ( the owner) was great and he was easy to reach and communicate with. Incredible time this year. The house was perfect for our group! This is our second stay at CC. Luv the Alexa addition, the sound system in and out, and so many areas to relax and enjoy the Tucson weather. Thank you Mark.

The kitchen and great room layout are perfect for us. Well thought out. We prepared dinner each night together as a group, laughing and cooking. The new outdoor grilling station was perfect. The house is extremely clean and stocked for all of your needs- from the kitchen to the pool area to the bathroom and shower area with outdoor pool access to the patio bed for a nap. The owner really pays attention to the details. Incredible afternoon and evenings poolside. Night time gathering around the firepit. Hot tub to relax and re-charge for more golf and exploring Tucson. I would recommend Casa Campagna to anyone needing an Oasis to get away to. Coffee on the front patio in the morning, then the landscaped and beautiful seating areas and pool areas in the back. Dinner table inside looking out if too hot, dinner outside on the patio under cover, even sun screens if needed. So many seating areas to talk and laugh and enjoy the group. We spent time sitting on the ledges in the pool and the umbrella near the shallow shelf as well. We can't wait to come back again. Thanks again for the second year of unforgettable memories of our visit to Tucson. Alexa, tell Mark we will be back!

Owner's Response: Dan, We're always so pleased when our guests enjoy Casa Campana as much as we do. Thanks for your comments and we couldn't agree with you more that the property allows families to spread out comfortably and enjoy being together. We're especially glad our newest additions with the outdoor grill island and Amazon Echo ("Alexa") devices around the house were a hit. We look forward to your family's future visits to Casa Campana!

Peaceful luxury

  • 5 of 5

The week we spent at Casa Campana was delightful. The home is large but not overwhelming, very well appointed, totally clean, and on a lovely piece of land with neighbors far in the distance. If you stay here, you won't want to leave other than to take a trip to the store for provisions. We cooked every day in a luxury kitchen, spent evenings watching the monsoon storms from the shelter of the outdoor patio and swam hours each day. Enjoy this place - it is very special.

Case Campana is located in the Tortolita Mountains foothills at the northern part of the greater Tucson area and adjacent to the Dove Mountain resort community including the Dove Mountain, Gallery and Heritage golf clubs and Ritz Carlton resort.

Only a short drive away are major Tucson area attractions including Mount Lemmon, Biosphere2, The Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, University of Arizona, and many great area golf clubs. Other nearby popular pursuits include hot air ballooning, off-road excursions, and mountain and desert hiking. Dove Mountain, the former site of the Accenture Match Play World Golf Tournament is only minutes away.

Close enough for day trips from Casa Campana, historic Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, Tubac arts community, Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory, and the Arizona Wine Country are all popular visitor destinations.

Situated on a private lane of 3+ acre properties, Casa Campana itself affords a great Sonoran Desert experience including an abundance of desert plants/trees, cactus, birds (including mourning doves, night hawks, hummingbirds, ...) and desert animals such as javelinas, coyotes, and deer. The property's natural setting and privacy will be appreciated by all, but convenience is not sacrificed with restaurants, shopping and other services less than 5 minutes away.
