About Joyce Anderson

Life's an adventure! We have been visiting Tucson for over 20 years and are fortunate now to have a wonderful home to share with you! The views from our home are incredible and we know you will love it too!

Joyce Anderson purchased this house in 2011

Why Joyce Anderson chose Monte Del Oro

Location & 360 views of the mountains around Oro Valley! This custom home sits above it all on a private acre lot. We enjoy the year round climate of the desert sun and love the outdoors!

What makes this house unique

The views from our home sold us, dining on the patio facing the sunrise over Pusch Ridge. The patio has a covered area shaded from the afternoon sun. The Swimming Pool & Ramada are very private and are a perfect place to relax with a book and enjoy the unobstructed view to the south. Front entry brick patio has fabulous western desert sunsets. You will enjoy the quiet and private location of our home but still be close to golf courses, parks, shopping and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comfortable and lovely

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay during February 2018. The kitchen was well-equipped so we were able to prepare most of our meals. The rooms were very comfortable. The master bedroom was roomy, with a large closet where we could store easily our clothes and gear. The laundry room was convenient. The house is well maintained and clean. The views from the patio and house were gorgeous. We would definitely recommend this house to others and would stay there again.

Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

Casa del Sol is a warmly decorated in southwestern colours and theme home, high up in a very quiet neighbourhood with lovely views in all directions and fabulous sunsets over Pusch Ridge to the east and the Tucson Mtns to the south. Natural desert green area surrounds the home with all kinds of wildlife to observe. We appreciated the attention to many details including a fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms. The large extended living area of patio, outdoor furniture and pool/gazebo with many seating/lounging areas added to the overall relaxation we felt while staying here for the month. We did a lot of road biking right from the house. We are looking forward to returning in the very near future. Thanks so much Joyce and Scott! Casa del Sol, best of the best of all our stays in Oro Valley.

A Lot of Sunshine

  • 5 of 5

We spend 4 months every year escaping the midwest winter in favor of sunshine. This is our fourth year and this property is definitely our favorite and we will be back next year. We called it the "Hawk's nest" because you are up high and have a 360 degree view of mountains all around. It feels like you are in your own nest. Also we would see the hawk on many days perching on the iron fence looking for his next meal. We also saw and heard the owls who visited periodically,

The pictures were a very representation of the property. It is not a large house but it was perfect for two people and when we had friends visit is was also very comfortable. The listing details were also accurate and we found no surprises. The property was clean and there was welcoming wine and snacks laid out for us. My favorite place was the window seat in the den area. A few naps were taken in that window. On the other hand we also spent many hours at the table in the kitchen with its great views of the wash and the mountains. I also found the deck outside the master bedroom was a great place to do yoga. All to say the house had many great spots. The house was well furnished both inside and out and had many interesting touches throughout..

The location in Oro Valley is perfect. It is close to all kinds of shopping, yet the neighborhood feels very private. Also convenient to many restaurrants. The house is situated so that it is very quiet. The owner was very responsive and we didn't need to do a thing. The handy man, the gardener and the pool person took good care of the property. When we had a issue with the house, it was addressed immediately.

We would definitely recommend the property to anyone looking for a quiet but convenient location.

An Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

The listing accurately describes the property. The house is fully equipped with everything a family would need. The appearance and condition were impecable and exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect and the unobstructed views are incredible. We would highly recommend this property and are already planning a return trip. The owners were extremely helpful and easy to work with.
