Great home for a large family or group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property last week and over the weekend for four nights. Our mother passed away, and we found this house last minute to accommodate all the relatives and friends who came from out of town.

It was comfortable for everyone - the kids could run around and have fun, and there was enough room for everyone to have a little privacy as well. The kitchen was well equipped for just about any type of cooking or food prep that you could whip up. There were plenty of towels and linens. Lots to do with a pool, BBQ grills, pool table, bars, games, television, etc.

Karen was an amazing and generous host to all of us, and very kind with the passing of our mom.

If you have a large group to accommodate, I would certainly recommend this property.

Electric Man

  • 5 of 5

During this emotional time, the owner was courteous, set up extra tables, sent flowers, gave wiene for the 40th reunion of most of us and the funeral for our mother. Karen is a great person and supplied us with more than material items. We enjoyed staying there and would recommend this house for anyone.

Tennis Ladies

  • 5 of 5

The location of Karen's house was great (about 2 miles) from where we played in the masters tennis tournament. It was very roomy, everyone had no problems getting ready with the 3 baths and the jacuzzi. The late night swims and drinks added to the nice atmosphere. We look forward to coming back next year.

Delightful Doggies and Donnie

  • 5 of 5

I train service dogs for the wounded warriors and several well known hospitals and organizations. We had plenty of room to have our weekend service dog training event and had a huge house to relax in afterwards. The access to the 2 acres in the back allowed us to put up all of our training aids and keep dogs separate through those events. Thanks for serving and allowing us the opportunity to share this special event in Tucson.
