Traveler's Review



Submitted: May 4, 2016 Stayed: April 2016

We came here for our honeymoon and after weeks of wedding madness, this home was exactly the refuge we needed. The house has everything you could possibly need. It is so well-appointed that it is easy to forget that you are not at home! We spent the first two days of our honeymoon in the pool and hot tub. Sanctuary! It was the perfect place to catch our breath and reflect on the previous week.

I am normally a person who likes to go-go-go on vacation, but this house made it hard to leave. When we did venture out, it wasn't a far drive to get to anything. From groceries to restaurants and even souvenirs, nothing is very far away, yet you don't even realize you are so close to civilization! The animals love this backyard. Bunnies, lizards and many bird species visited each morning.

We had such a wonderful honeymoon that I can say with certainty that we will be back to this house to vacation again. This time we plan to bring family with us, since the house will accommodate six people! This house was a dream. And we had a perfect honeymoon.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend while visiting our daughter who attends UofA and stayed for summer school. The home is lovely - super clean and well appointed with almost everything you need.

The backyard is GORGEOUS - the trees, flowering plants, and setting is absolutely wonderful. You can lay on a float (provided) in the pool and watch butterflies, hummingbirds, lizards come and go throughout the day. The lighting against the mountains is forever changing throughout the day and it's simply beautiful. We've rented several homes in Arizona while visiting her and this was our favorite.

Owner's Response: Emily, Thank you for that wonderful Review. This truly is a great home. Those views, and that backyard! Stacey and I love when the sun is setting and the Catalina Mountains turn pink. We've been here 14 years and I never tire of that sight. I hope you'll come back soon to visit your daughter. Feel free to call me directly and we can "hold" some dates for you. Sincerely, Todd Wolff

Beautiful home with amazing backyard view!

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st stay in Arizona was amazing due to the comforts of this home. Beautiful decor, super clean, extremely comfortable beds with cozy linens. The backyard was our relaxation zone! You will not be disappointed, from the fruit trees, pool, quail visits, to sunsets on that beautiful mountain view! The hot tub is a plus especially coming back from hiking. Thanks to Todd for being so attentive and quick to respond to any of our questions. If you are looking for a true serene oasis this is it! Highly recommend this home =)

Beautiful home in the desert!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family down to Tucson for a few days while I had business in town and we had such a great time staying this home in The Bluffs! The house is new, very clean, and well appointed (which was great as we love to cook!). The backyard was beautiful and the pool was just what we needed to beat the summer heat. My daughters especially liked the family of quail living along the back fence! We have stayed in many VRBO houses and this was definitely top tier!

Unexpected Desert Oasis.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Catalina Dream. It has everything you could ever need. We enjoyed spending time in the pool after hiking. The house is very charming and is super clean. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We will be back to enjoy the property again.
