About Mike Alameda

My name is Mike, I am the house manager and a Tucson native. If I were to choose a 2nd career I would be a Tucson tour guide "I love the Old Pueblo" and enjoy sharing Tucson's history with my guest.

Mike Alameda purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike Alameda chose Sahuaros Grandes

Location! Location! Location! This scenic property is beautiful. We have rented it to individuals who are looking to for a quiet and relaxing place while enjoying the Sonoran Desert and still be within 10 minutes from downtown Tucson and many other attractions.

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 such as the Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson Movie Studio, Pima Air and Space Museum and the Cultural Centers at the University of Arizona and more!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay here

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location to view the desert while at home. Mike even called us to let us know that javalina were there. We were out but fortunately we had already seen them. The birds were amazing.

Desert Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Of the many properties we have stayed in, this ranks among the best. First, is the property itself. Accurately described. Clean. Adequately equipped kitchen. Beautiful patio overlooking acres of desert with oodles of birds at the bird feeders. We ate many meals on the patio and watched the sun set. The location is perfect for taking advantage of all that the Tucson area has to offer. Safeway grocery store is minutes away. Within twenty minutes is wonderful hiking at the Sweetwater Preserve, the U. of Arizona campus, downtown Tucson, the airport, Tucson Mall, El La EnContada Mall, and scores of wonderful restaurants. Our host, Mike, had many suggestions for where to eat and directions to hiking. I could not recommend a property any more highly. A very comfortable place for two retired couples who enjoy getting out and seeing the sights.

clean and beautiful great location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. You felt like you were away from the world but were very close to restaurants and stores. Very close to activities like Saguaro National Park and the Desert Museum. The house was at the edge of the desert and the wildlife was incredible. Mike was a terrific host and had lots of ideas about places to see and restaurants. We would return to see more of Tucson.

"Gracious Home" lived up to its name

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Graciosa in Tucson. Everything was clean and the house was well furnished. Our favorite part was the wildlife....hummingbirds, quail, coyotes, peccaries, etc... Would stay again without hesitation.
