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!

Mike Alameda purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike Alameda chose Sahuaros Grandes

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.

A well named property

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, our host Mike Alemeda was as gracious the name of the casa implies. He greeted us warmly, fixed the washing machine post haste, stopped by just to make sure we were having fun and made several recommendations as to sites and dining. The home is spacious and clean and well located to the Desert Museum and Tucson downtown. Because the back yard is not fenced or walled we were treated to almost every type of local wild life--no rattlers or bobcats. Our three weeks flew by and we hope the Casa Graciosa embraces many more families.

Very nice, clean house in a convenient location with great views and a friendly host.

  • 5 of 5

The Casa was fun. The owner, Mike, lives next door, and he was very friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. He put out a cake a bird seed for us since he knew we liked to watch birds. He made sure that the ice-maker was working when we could not figure it out. He came over and visited and offered suggestions for places to eat, etc..

The area is so convenient to downtown Tucson and other locations such as hiking trails, restaurants and so forth that we really had fun. We loved watching the birds in the yard and the coyotes in the street!

The house was clean and comfy and plenty large for two people. We really liked the covered patio with a great view of the mountains.

This is a delightful place in a great part of town. Easy to get downtown. The grounds are well tended and wildlife abounds. The living areas are spotless, spacious and uncluttered. We'd come back without hesitation. Thanks, Mike!

Desert Plus

  • 4 of 5

The setting for the home is just what I wanted. It is quiet, lovely yard, complete with Javelinas occasionally and even 4 acres to hike around in the gulch behind the home. The easy access to I-10 and all major attractions was really great. We felt so at peace in this lovely place. It was well-stocked with more than I could have anticipated. Thanks for your hospitality, Mike. Bettye P.
