About the property

The two cats in the yard might be bobcats!

This 900 SF casita was custom built in 2010 on a one acre lot. The casita is attached to the main house by an open courtyard with fountain, a high tower foyer, and covered patio. Come enjoy this beautiful one bedroom guest home located in the scenic Northeast area. You will have your own direct access to the casita.

The spacious LR/Kitchen has exposed beams, granite counter tops, and SW design details evident in the numerous arches and fully tiled floors. A full dresser and closet complete the bedroom. Bathroom has custom tiled shower, and a washer and dryer. 9' ceilings, and mountain views throughout the property. The beautiful courtyard and covered patio lie just off the living room door. Privacy walls surround our entire 1 acre lot. Three outside sitting areas allow you to fully enjoy the beautiful, sunny, Tucson weather, cozy up around the fire pit, or sit peacefully under the mesquite trees overlooking a meadow,

About David or RoseMarie Gramling

My wife and I retired here from upstate New York. I was a residential re-modeler and new home builder for 30 years. My wife was a teacher. We love Tucson so much, we retired here.

David or RoseMarie Gramling purchased this house in 2010

Why David or RoseMarie Gramling chose Bear Canyon Hills

Have you ever rented a place that looked great on the web site only to find it lacking in person? The non-stick cookware is shot, or the shower drains so slowly you stand in dirty water, or there is a bucket in the living room catching a 'small' leak from the unit above? Well, as a traveler all three of these things have happened to me. I can assure you that this will never happen to you at our Casita. We live right next door. The premises are thoroughly inspected between each stay. Any issue that pops up while you are here can be taken care of immediately, or held off until you leave, if that's what you prefer. When you arrive, the home will be ready for you to enjoy every minute of your vacation.

What makes this house unique

As a builder, I am proud of this home. From its unique architectural lines to its elegant southwestern decor, I believe the home is truly a special place. But the truth is, I could build this home anywhere. What really makes this home a complete joy to live in is the location. The home sits on one acre in a quiet, residential neighborhood. There is a solid 6' high privacy wall enclosing the entire backyard. This is about 1/2 acre. While it is very peaceful sitting in the home, the backyard offers a large covered patio with a gas grill, a water fountain with a bench, plus two other sitting areas with a mesquite tree canopy. To top it all off, the 'Tucson Table' area is tranquility at it's finest. Sit back, or lie back on the zero gravity chairs, and listen to the wind tickle the mesquite trees, hummingbirds proclaiming their territory, and the coyotes announcing the sunset - or sunrise - if you are up that early. We have spent many an evening watching the sunset across the majestic Catalina Mountains. With all the nooks and crannies, it never grows old.

THE place to stay in Tucson!

  • 5 of 5

A very, very, very fine house is an apt and honest title for this listing. The casita is comfortable, well stocked, tastefully decorated and a true oasis in the desert. What a luxury to come back here after a day of hiking or a long day of business meetings. Conveniently located close to the Rincon Mountains and shopping, this place has it all. Dave and Ro are such kind, friendly and gracious hosts. I wish I could find as wonderful a place in each city we travel.

Lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! All prior reviews are true! House and amenities are great, Dave and Ro were friendly and helpful. The view from the rooftop deck is spectacular. We have family in the area and will definitely be back to rent this property again, if available!

Thank you Ro and Dave for sharing your corner of heaven - such a beautiful view of the mountains, quiet, and tranquil! The casita is very comfortable, clean, and just lovely. Everything from shops to outdoor recreation is close by. We so enjoyed our stay and will return.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property, well maintained, and such a peaceful setting; quiet & serene. Kitchen well appointed, top of the line appliances, comfy bed and everything one needs while away from home. Hosts were so very accommodating, gracious and attentive when it called for it. It is indeed a very, very, very fine house. I loved my stay. Highly recommend this for one or two people. I especially liked the keyless entry and exit. No worries about "where did I put those keys!" Dave and Ro you were fabulous hosts.

Wish we were still there!

  • 5 of 5

What a great holiday we had in the Tucson area recently and with such superb accommodation it was hard to leave. Dave and Rosemarie are wondeful hosts and the casita is just lovely. Make sure you visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and get there early in the day, there is so much to see. Also lots of hiking trails in Sabino and Bear Canyons and Houston's Horeseback Riding is well worth it and close by as well. Tucson Botanical Garden is fascinating with a great cafe for lunch. Altogether, so many good memories and we would love to come back some day, Andrew & Caralyn
