Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is a private home near the Coronado National Forest Wilderness Area. This 4,000 square foot contemporary Santa Fe style home is beautifully situated on the one of the highest and most scenic improved parcels in the northwest Catalina Foothills at the base of Mount Lemmon. 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, with multiple porches and decks with some of the best views of the Tucson valley.

This home is nestled into a saguaro studded hillside at an elevation of 3,200’ (Downtown Tucson is about 2,350’). It is one of the highest estates in the northwest foothills of Tucson and the view must be seen to be believed. During the day, you can see the mountains on the Mexican border (68 miles away) and at night, the sea of lights of metro Tucson are below you. Behind the home is designated wilderness area filled with wildlife and improved hiking trails off of Pima Canyon. We have personally seen the following birds and animals in our yard: giant owl; giant hawk, bobcat, deer, javelina, coyote, humming bird, rabit and various other species. The daytime temperatures in the summer are about 4 degrees less than downtown because of our elevation and the nighttime temperatures in the winter run at least 5 degrees warmer because we are off of the valley floor.

It is only minutes away from many activities:

-Golf at Arizona National (formerly the Raven) in 10 minutes, Ventana Canyon in 25 minutes, and many more great golf courses within 30 minutes.

-Grocery shopping, restaurants, drug stores, and virtually everything you might need to purchase on a day to day basis are within 8 minutes.

-La Encantada, Tucson's premier dining and shopping venue, is 5 minutes away.

-St Phillips Plaza, another exclusive shopping and dining location, is about 10 minutes away.

-Tucson Mall is about 10 minutes away.

-University of Arizona is about 20 minutes

-Downtown Tucson is about 25 minutes

About Strom

I am a computer engineer who has traveled and lived around the world but have chosen to settle in Tucson due to its temperate climates, spectacular scenery, and abundant wildlife.

Strom purchased this house in 2010

Why Strom chose Sin Vacas

This property simply has one of the most spectacular views in Southern Arizona. You can see mountains in Mexico over 80 miles away!

What makes this house unique

I like sitting on the porch or in the hot tub in the evenings enjoying the spectacular sunsets and the amazing city lights.

Great place with beautiful views and plenty of comfortable space to spread out

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a gathering place for our family to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from U of A and this was perfect. The pool and hot tub were beautiful and the kitchen was well equipped for meals. Comfy beds and nice and clean!

Tucson highlands getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Very lovely property, though not quite as private as it appears in the photos. The pool is actually right next to the house next door, however no one was there when we were, fortunately. The home was well appointed, and the kitchen had everything you could possibly want, with very nice flatware and dishes. Good views from front and side, and not very far from places we wanted to visit. The hot tub doesn't fill completely, leaving half our bodies out of the water. It needs fixing. On the whole, we had a great time.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far one of the best properties we have ever stayed in. The owner is very responsive both in the planning/reservation and during the stay. The kitchen is extremely well supplied with a great variety of pans, utensils and tableware. The bedrooms are giant with smart tvs in each one. The pool area is wonderful. The house is situated up in the foothills of Tucson on a corner lot. A spectacular view down into the valley can be seen from the full wall of windows in the living room, from the wrap around porch and from sitting by the pool. The house is close to shopping and restaurants and lots of great hikes.

Great house and views overseeing Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay in Strom's house. He was very pleasant and accommodating to our needs with two young children. Pool and spa were terrific. We would definitely return and enjoy all that the greater Tucson area has to offer.

Peaceful, Private, Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

Strom's Eagle's Nest has a fabulous view of the Tucson Valley, without a lot of noise. We were here in January and could keep the bedroom patio door open at night to hear crickets and the occasional coyote--but the city of Tucson is far enough away that there is almost no city noise. The pool and spa were great, and Strom's policy to simply charge you for whatever gas you use to heat them is straightforward and fair. It was roomy, furnished nicely and equipped with plenty of kitchen stuff--as well as many spices and ingredients that you'd likely forget to bring with you. Beds comfy, bathrooms clean, very relaxing all around!

One person appeared next door to water plants daily, otherwise we didn't notice the proximity of the adjoining house. We would definitely recommend staying here and would ourselves again, except that on walking around the neighborhood we found a home for sale and we SO LOVE this location that we are beginning the process to buy it and become Strom's neighbor!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $200
Pool/Spe Heating Deposit $200

The natural gas deposit covers the actual cost of natural gas used primarily for heating the pool and the hot tub as measured by the gas meter. I take a photo of it when you arrive and when you depart, then charge the exact rate that I am charged. If your deposit doesn't cover the charge then you owe me the difference. If the deposit was more than the charge then I will refund the difference.
