About Ian Wilson
Originally from Montreal, Canada and New Hampshire. Relocated to Tucson, AZ in 2007 for new work opportunity and for a different, healthier lifestyle. More time for our children and for recreating all year. We love our three horses and actively ride in Tucson and the many surrounding national parks and forests.
Ian Wilson purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Ian Wilson chose Catalina Foothills
We bought this condo in Skyline Villa in 2007 after extensive research in the area. Skyline Villa is perfectly located in the beautiful foothills of Tucson with incredible mountain views, and a two-minute walk to Tucson's high end mall, La Encantada. Most parts of Tucson you need a car, but not here with walking access to many restaurants, bars, grocery stores and excellent, high-end shopping. Skyline Villa is also secure, private and safe. The property is well maintained, clean and landscaped beautifully.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo in Skyline Villa is quiet, comfortable, private and perfectly located, with great mountain views on our private porch, outfitted with a ceiling fan and shades. We like the fact that our condo is on the 2nd floor; it is quiet and private. Our condo is outfitted with high-end features, including granite counter-tops, pull-out drawers in the kitchen (no bending), a water softening system, and high-efficiency washer and dryer.

A great spot in the foothills
We were relocating to Tucson so we decided to spend the first six weeks in a vacation rental while we looked for a permanent place. This townhome in Skyline Villas turned out to be perfect: a very comfortable two-bedroom with everything we needed, beautiful views of the Catalina Mountains from the balcony where we would have coffee every morning, right next to La Encantada Mall with lots of restaurants, and an easy drive into central Tucson. Ian was very helpful, making sure we had everything we needed and even providing tips on relocating in Tucson. It couldn’t have been a better introduction to our new city. Highly recommended for vacationing or long-term stays.
Awesome place, stay and experience

Condos very kept, resort style grounds, have come for 3 mo. For over 6 years, will return again.
Paradise , Home Away from Home
OMG! The owners of this beautiful,well furnished upscale condo have totally thought out how to make their guests comfortable. Everything from fine dish-ware, linens, bedding, furniture and decor has been taken care of. You are greeted with flowers on the table, spotless environment and a note asking if there is anything you need.
Skyline Villa's location and grounds are very desirable part of Tucson. The pool, spa, tennis court, and area are very well maintained . You feel especially safe in this complex. We found many of the same "Snowbirds" returning. In fact, this was our 4th. year at Skyline Villa and we are so pleased that Ian and Allison have extended our time next year. The location of this condo, across from the pool, and beautiful court yard with gorgeous views of the Catalina Mnts. make it the most desirable location in the complex besides having a well furnished balcony to enjoy the sunrise and sunset.
A very "special" thank you to the owners for providing this "Paradise" for us. See you next February.
Best area in Tucson
The owners of this condo take pride in their property. We arrived to a clean and well organized living area. Even fresh flowers in a vase! The pool is kept at 85 degrees making it and the hot tub very inviting. With amazing views and La Encantada next door, this is a great value.
Absolutely wonderful condo; very comfortable in a gorgeous setting
We had a fantastic month in this condo. The listing and the photos were accurate, although the rooms are nicer than the photos suggest. The condo complex was great--quiet, friendly, convenient. We walked to the mall next door very often to eat at the restaurants and shop at the grocery store. The pool, hot tub, and tennis courts are wonderful--well maintained, clean, attractive. Mostly, though, we were impressed with the very thoughtful way that the condo owners had furnished and equipped the condo. The kitchen has everything you could need to make nice meals, and the appliances and dishes/glasses etc are high quality and attractive, so you can really set a pretty table. There are nice placemats, napkins, towels, sheets, and so it feels very luxurious. Ditto for the furniture--the design is well-thought out, so it's very comfortable and makes you feel like you're in a stylish space. The outdoor terrace is heaven, and it has nice furnishings too. We spent a lot of time out there at sunrise and sunset. The mattress is the master bedroom is the most comfortable one I've ever slept in. Wifi, phone, Blue-Ray etc all work well.
The owners were very responsive, and were prompt, helpful, and fun to deal with as we were making our arrangements and signing the contract. They also checked in on us by email a few times during our stay to make sure things were going well. When I happened to mention that we couldn't figure out how to to work the blender, they brought us a new blender the very next morning!
I highly recommend this condo. We'll be back next year if we can!
