About Rex Cook

We currently live in California, and always look forward to spending time here in Oro Valley. We enjoy being active in such a beautiful environment; can't get enough of the warm evenings, monsoon lightning, birds, lizards, and quiet! We have loved Arizona since we met here 30 years ago (one Californian and one Missourian). Now, with family in Tucson, this is our home away from home.

Rex Cook purchased this house in 2013

Why Rex Cook chose Rancho Vistoso

We love the location here close to our family, close to the Catalinas (for her) and to golf (for him). Our neighbors here are so friendly!

What makes this house unique

The view from the back yard and the open space behind the house are what we love about it.

A Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. We agree with Rex that the chief selling points are the quiet and view of the mountains. It's amazingly quiet for being so close to the "main drag." We also enjoyed the multitude of birds and the nightly coyote calls. The low-light rules of the Sun City community really pay off for star gazing. As a lap swimmer being just a few miles from the amazing Oro Valley Aquatics Center was an added bonus. And do not miss the drive up Mt. Lemmon which is incredible. Thanks for sharing your great home!

Owner's Response: Happy you enjoyed your stay. And, yes, for the serious swimmer that Aquatics Center is fantastic. Hope you come back again.
