About Mike Alameda

My name is Mike, I am the property manager and a native of Tucson, If I would choose another career I would be a Tucson tour guide!

Why Mike Alameda chose Tucson

This property is beautiful, and we have rented it in the past to individuals who are looking to enjoy a quiet and relaxing time while enjoying the Sonoran Desert.

What makes this house unique

This home feels like you are living far from the city, but in just a few minutes you are in downtown Tucson. Great location to famous tourist attractions.

great place

  • 5 of 5

House roomy enough for two couples; bedrooms large, beds comfortable, clean! Landscaping, especially backyard was beautiful. We saw javelinas, quail, fat ground squirrel, birds of all sorts and 4 coyotes. The home is in the desert but with very easy access to the areas tourist attractions. We would recommend this site to friends. The house manager stopped in a couple of times to make sure that we had everything that we needed.

Great Home/Location Nestled in the Tucson Foothills

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I just stayed for 8 days - the location is perfect if you like outdoor activities like Saguaro Nat'l Park, Sonora Desert Museum, Tohono Chul Park = easy access. The home is spacious and clean and we loved it! We particularly enjoyed watching birds/wildlife right out in the beautiful backyard. Mike, the owner, lives next door, and is very helpful. We really liked the quiet location - out of the city - above a wash in the foothills, with very easy access and convenient to any places you want to visit, eat or get groceries. Lovely patio to sit outside and enjoy sunsets, watching birds/wildlife, eat, and relax. Wish I could stay all winter! Mike also mentioned watching desert storms from there is pretty fabulous too. Great for two like us as each had our own bedroom/bath. Makes you fall in love with the desert - it is such a vibrant, interesting ecosystem.

Wonderful stay in comfortable and scenic location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved the house.. and the view. (It didn't hurt that the Feb weather was above average and in the 80's every day!). The location on the east side of Tucson was conveniently located, less than 15 minutes to downtown. Loved the wildlife that we saw in the backyard and in the wash below the house (deer, javelina, coyote, quail and even a bobcat!).

The host was available for questions and suggestions. It is a quiet and special getaway.

Great location close to the city but still in the rural area for wildlife viewing

  • 4 of 5

Pretty clean house and property overall but upper reaches in the home needed some attention. Some appliances needed updating. Home was more than spacious for 4 people. Neighborhood is very quiet and conveniently located to great restaurants and amenities. And the wildlife watching could not be better the Bobcat and coyote we're a great treat.
