About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths & 2 Half Bath (Sleeps 8)

Bienvenidos to Pasos del Cielo! - a unique opportunity to experience hacienda living with breathtaking 360 degree views and resort style amenities in a true southwestern retreat. Situated on five acres with over 5,400 sq feet of living area, the hacienda provides spaciousness and privacy - yet is just minutes away from the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain, world-renowned Miraval Spa,

golf and shopping. The hacienda is the perfect choice for a family get together, romantic get away, golfing holiday or a relaxing spa retreat.

Stunning panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and desert make unforgettable sunsets and star-studded evening skies. Beautifully appointed with quality furnishings and luxury amenities, the home features 4 bedrooms each with an en suite bathroom, a huge chef's kitchen for entertaining, large great room, formal dining room, separate library, music gallery with piano, and office.

And whether you plan to play chef or have us hire one for you, you'll find the kitchen a pleasure. Fully stocked with every convenience and an island seating bar, it features a large prep area with two sinks, an indoor grill, six-burner gas stove, double ovens, and wine cabinet all surrounded by hand crafted custom mesquite cabinetry.

Outside, the main 3000 sf patio area is like having your own resort with a 50' swimming pool (see heating note below), built-in gas and charcoal barbecues with entertainment bar and outdoor sound system -- plus pool house with sauna, wet bar and outdoor shower. Guests enjoy evenings for s'mores and conversation around the fire pit, the sounds of the Spanish fountain, and the native flower gardens, orange, grapefruit and pomegranate trees. Two additional patios provide guests with quiet space for watching the birds and butterflies or just taking in the sun.

Upstairs, the 600+sf master suite is a private oasis with a balcony affording majestic views, a charming loft with wood burning fireplace and wet bar for toasting the sunset. The master bath also has its own balcony, walk in shower and jacuzzi.

Best of all, Pasos del Cielo offers the opportunity to relax and experience the beauty of the desert on your own five acres, hike and bike for miles outside your door, and play golf, shop and dine just minutes away. As one guest said recently in his review, "There aren't many guarantees in life, but this is one of them, I promise you." I'm happy to assist with any special arrangements you might need and look forward to the opportunity of having you!


- Minimum age of the contracting guest - 30 years. Because of the layout of the home and property, I regret that I can only accept children 10 years or older.

- Pool heating: If you would like to use the pool heating system, there is a charge of $100/day due to the size of the pool and the cost of propane. Please contact me for any questions: 520.437.9749

About Jan

I've been very lucky to live in some wonderful cities from Hollywood to NY, Washington, DC, San Francisco, and Chicago and have enjoyed them all, but always had a vision of one day having a hacienda in the Southwest. All those places were important influences in my life and in one way or another contributed to coming to Tucson and finding my dream home and the ambiance that it offers. I've been delighted to have wonderful, fascinating people find their way here and it's a joy to share this magical desert and home with you.

Oasis in the desert !

  • 5 of 5

I travel with a group of golfing friends to Tucson every fall. This year there were 4 couples. Finding a home with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths is difficult. This house checks all the boxes. Great bedrooms, kitchen, pool, nearby golf, grocery store and restaurants. The house is in great shape and well loved by its owner. Jan, the owner is a delight. We didn't feel like renters but rather her guests. She was very responsive to any of our needs beyond anything we have experienced elsewhere. We'll be back.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here in Arizona. Jan met us when we arrived and showed us around. She even left us some treats that were appreciated and enjoyed. My youngest son really enjoyed getting to feed carrots to her horses. Jan and her whole family were friendly and gracious hosts. We enjoyed spending time chatting with them all. If we ever get to Arizona again, we would definitely return there to stay.

You get exactly wat you pay for! Relax and Enjoy!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice home to stay 25 min. Out of Tucson. The hosts are exceptional and on site to deal with any problems or concerns that come up. Very few did and they were handled expeditiously! The well equipped kitchen, pantry etc. is a cooks dream. Think fully equipped then throw in any unexpected Equiptment , bam. The beds, pillows, sheets were excellent. The pool in 115• outdoor temp. Was perfect. A great comfortable stay overall!!

Our stay at Jan's house was nothing short of spectacular. Jan met us upon arrival with a very nice bottle of red wine and homemade cookies. She proceeded to give us a tour of the house which is off the charts beautiful. The downstairs is completely open space with the living area floating right into a gigantic kitchen. Beautifully decorated as well. Next she showed us the 3 BR's on the ground floor each with their own bath and a master suite upstairs that made my jaw drop. Outside is a huge pool, tremendous patio and grill area. We grilled each night we were there. Jan provides all you need when it comes to dishes, glassware, silverware, 20+ spices for name it. For all of your food and adult beverage needs there is an excellent supermarket a 5 minute drive away that has everything.

Jan also 2 beautiful horses that you get to see every day.

Such a gracious host, on our last night which happened to be Mother's Day she paid us a visit on the patio after our dinner and had some gifts for all of the Mom's. A very nice touch indeed.

This to me (and the others agreed) felt like we were staying at a resort but we had it all to ourselves. We loved every minute of it and I certainly intend to make a return trip sometime in the future.

A very spacious property in an excellent location. Stocked with everything needed to cook in and also easy access to restaurants.

You even get a bonus of a couple houses on the property.

Jan (the owner was quick with response to questions during the booking process & to a couple questions during our stay.

Spring Trip with Friends at a Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Over the past few years I have traveled with the same group of friends ro other VRBO properties around the USA and can say without a doubt that this property was by far the best, most fantastic we have stayed at. First off we found the property to be exceptionally clean. Jan the owner was a dream come true as she was very up front and helpful in the planning stages, during our stay and post trip communications. We found the property to be beautiful and exactly what we thought it would be. In other words no unpleasant surprises. There is a large pool with a good working heating system that we truly enjoyed. The kitchen was well appointed and in good working order. Jan had even left us a bowl of fruit which we discovered on arrival. (This act of kindness we have never experienced before.) The property is away from any other houses or businesses which made us feel that we were far away from the hustle and bustle. But in reality we were very close to all activities we had planned on doing. Each morning a bird, a road runner, entered the compound in search or food. It was fun to watch it. The property is beautifully landscaped and many of the shrubs were in full bloom during our week long stay. If we should revisit the Tucson area again we would diffidently consider staying here again.
