About Mark Gibson

My wife and I live in Hereford AZ, about 2 hours away on the side of a mountain at 5,000 ft. in a beautiful Swiss style chalet. I am a retired NASA engineer and my wife is a retired business owner.

Mark Gibson purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Mark Gibson chose Green Valley Esperanza Estates

My wife and I bought this property from the estate of my wife's uncle and completely remodeled it for a place where we will eventually retire.

What makes this townhome unique

The front and back yards are delightful retreats in the morning or evening to enjoy a cup of coffee or an evening nightcap. Strolls down to the ramada for swimming are usually interrupted by pleasant folks sharing information about local activities. Its the nice people that make this place memorable.

Great place! Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for four months. We loved its spaciousness and the light filled character of the place as well as the privacy afforded by a.walled back yard. Esperanza Estates is, itself, a great, quiet community with multiple social events that we enjoyed throughout our stay. The home was delivered spotlessly clean and well maintained. The furnishings were nice and the beds comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. My wife temporarily converted the AZ room into a useful sewing room, filled with southern light and with a beautiful view of the back walled patio and it's greenery and flowers.

We had no problems with any part of the house, but were impressed with how the owner assured us of their willingness to stand behind their assurance that we would have a good stay. The owner called us twice to check.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

This was located in a great neighbourhood. It was close located in walking distance to recreational facilities. The street and neighbourhood were quiet and safe. The owners were very accommodating. We had some minor recommendations on commencing our rental and they were acted on very quickly and appreciatively.

The rich culture of Tucson for music, theater, art and education are very near and easy to reach via a short drive on Interstate 19. The mountains and high deserts of Arizona are in your back yard. Four major golf courses are within 2 miles of the Sky Island House.
