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.

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.

"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.

Fabulous desert experience

  • 5 of 5

Another fabulous desert experience at Casa Graciosa. Convenient location to a number of tourist destinations, close proximity to stores and major highway. Couldn't believe the wildlife show in the backyard; quail, javelina, coyote, mule deer, and many birds.

Mike, the owner, shares his insights and knowledge of the area to enhance the desert experience even more. Looking forward to visiting the area again with a stay at a truly remarkable desert home.

Casa Graciosa

  • 5 of 5

We got to experience the magical desert landscapes both at the casa graciosa and the Saguaro National Forest (West and East). The house is comfortable and well equipped, the setting is wonderful with beautiful views and surprise visits by javelinas, coyotes (passing through and chatting at night), and humming birds, quails, gorgeous cardinals, and more. The walk up and down the wash is wonderful, especially in the company of Mike Alameda.

Now we are back in the wintery landscape - only partially magical - and regret having had to cut our stay short by a day.
