4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
This remarkable 4 bedroom 3.5 bath 3500 square foot home is truly unique and magnificent and is located in a quiet, prestigious neighborhood in the Catalina Foothills. This breathtaking custom home is set at the base of the Catalina Mountains and built into a ridge to take full advantage of panoramic mountain and city views. Its octagonal design with floor to ceiling windows fashions an open and bright living space.
You drive down a long brick driveway with ample parking and pull into an oversize two car garage with a full workshop.
If you enter the home through the secure garage entrance you walk into a foyer with the laundry room on one side and large coat room and pantry on the other. You then enter a gracious modern kitchen with high vaulted ceilings and a distinctive, one of a kind painted glass breakfast island with bar stools. There is another eat-in kitchen table overlooking the north mountains. You then enter a spectacular living/dining room space with leather couch and chairs that face a lovely gas fireplace. A large marble dining table with lazy Susan and a T.V. den with a flat screen T.V. , large leather recliner couch and two leather recliner chairs complete the great room. Through the many sliding glass doors you have access to the first level wrap around deck where you can enjoy the outside seating areas, views, and a gas grill. You have a powder room off the hallway that leads to your oversize master bedroom complete with a very comfortable king size bed, overlooking city lights at night and mountain vistas by day. There is a large walk-in closet, two desks (so there is no competing for computer space!), a flat screen T.V. and a complete separate shower and bath in the en-suite bathroom.
If you enter the home from the front door you can visualize this grand living /dining space with a stairway leading downstairs where your guests can enjoy their own separate level, which includes three large bedrooms (one bedroom with a Tempur-Pedic king size mattress and the other two with comfortable queen size mattress in each) and two full baths. The two larger rooms open onto another private wrap around deck on the bottom level with unmatchable views of the city and mountains. The third bedroom has a large vista window with views of the north mountains. This custom home is truly a work of art, it is a WOW! We wish to share this incredible property with you.

A house we love to return to!
My wife and I just spent two months in this spectacular house. We first rented here in 2016 and enjoyed the house so much that we couldn't wait to return. So we did! (In 2017, we rented another of Margery's properties and it was fabulous, too -- see our review of VRBO # 761390 .) This Catalina Foothills house exceeded our expectations in every way: tastefully, comfortably furnished and decorated; fully equipped; and magical location with breath-taking views and close to an array of outdoor experiences, including The Loop Bike Path. Margery, Carrie, and Bryan were so pleasant and accommodating. If you're renting in Tucson, you have to rent from Margery--she, her colleagues, and properties are first class in every way.

Excellent house. Love it. Highly recommended.
We moved from NY to Tucson (my wife, two kids, my parents and I). We stayed at this house for 5 months, while we were looking for a house to buy. Everything was great about this house. we loved it so much and love the views. We had an excellent communication with Margery (the owner). She was a very pleasant and reliable. She responded to our questions and concerns (not many) in a timely manner. The house is big and has an intimacy feeling. If the house was for sell, we would have bought it. Highly recommended. Thank you Margery and it was a pleasure meeting you.
Excellent Accomodations, Outstanding Management!
I can't say enough about the house, the management, and the setting. The house was clean, organized, and very well decorated. Margery and Carrie went beyond my expectations with their responsiveness, friendliness, and concern for our well-being. The setting was great with sightings of deer and the desert birds besides the views of the colorful Tucson sunrises and sunsets.. I had 10 guests at various intervals and all had positive things to say about the rental.
Thank you so much for your kind words. My property manager and I work hard to make sure your vacation stay is lovely and it is very rewarding to receive such a positive review! We look forward to seeing you in the future.
Beautiful setting and great location
Four long time friends spent the month here and enjoyed it very much. The home is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you need. Margery and Carrie were just a text away if we needed anything.
We are so glad we could help make your time in Tucson enjoyable. We hope to see you in the future.
Stylish and comfortable showplace in an excellent location
We have been staying at VRBO properties for over 15 years. This house is among the best, a showplace really. We stayed here a few years ago and we jumped at the opportunity to return for a month this year. The architecture of the house is unique. The open design provides plenty of room and superb views of the hills, the city, and the sunrise. The furnishings are stylish and comfortable, and attractive art is on display throughout the house. The kitchen is large, well laid out, and was unmistakably equipped by someone who loved to cook (and eat). Overall the house is well appointed, and equipped with everything we needed. Margery and her assistant, Carrie, were quick to provide local information, a pass to nearby Sabino Canyon, and to respond swiftly to our (few) questions. They certainly made our visit enjoyable.
The house is conveniently located. There are supermarkets and good restaurants a short drive away, as is Sabino Canyon, our favorite spot for a short walk in the afternoon or a full day’s hike.
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Catalina Foothills Treasure
We spent the month of November in this fabulous home. We expected a nice place from the description and reviews on VRBO, but this mountain villa in the Catalina Foothills exceeded our expectations in every way. The physical layout of the house is really unique. First, the home's floor plan and the floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outdoors inside each room. Second, the great room on the main floor provided plenty of space for socializing, dining, and viewing the big screen TV. The three guest bedrooms and baths are on their own floor and have plenty of privacy for guests. The furnishings throughout are tasteful and very comfortable, and the walls feature intriguing art. The wraparound deck provides gorgeous views in three directions. The kitchen is well-stocked with dinner ware, cook ware, placemats/linens, and utensils. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there.
Owner Margery always responded quickly to our questions even though we didn't have very many. Margery and Carrie have definitely thought of everything that helps make a stay at this house such an outstanding pleasure! Do yourself a huge favor and stay at this villa.
We as owners love to hear your lovely words. Thank you for enjoying our home and also for taking such lovely care of it during your stay. We hope all visitors enjoy the home, like it was their own , and you did!!
