Property description

* Perfect for Tucson Winter Snowbirds * Excellent location for hikers & cyclists! Lots of privacy on 8.5 acres with a wide variety of cacti, mature desert vegetation and Sonoran Desert wildlife. Yet close to main surface roads, stores, restaurants and anything else you need. Charming 1950's ranch-style adobe brick home with all modern amenities, furniture and furnishings. There is also a wonderful outdoor rock-lined nature path, which circles you back to the home. * This is a non-smoking property * (Rate: $1,000/wkly with 4 wk min stay. Half-price in the summer off-season.)

Conveniently located on the exclusive Northeast side of Tucson, near the foot of Mt. Lemmon. Easy access to the main surface streets of Tucson via E Tanque Verde Rd. Easy access to Mt. Lemmon via Catalina Hwy.

The Casa Soleada is just 10 minutes from Sabino Canyon & Bear Canyon, which are perfect for sightseeing via walking, hiking or a narrated tram ride. Tucson is a 'hiker's heaven!' There are hiking guide books and day hike suggestions in The Casa. Only 15 minutes from Saguaro National Park (with hiking, biking & horse trails, a paved 8 mile loop for a scenic drive or cycling, picnic areas and a free educational desert life video at the visitors center).

Excellent location for cyclists! Just down the road there's access to miles of newly paved bicycle paths and the main streets in the vicinity all have designated bike lanes. Also, only 2 miles from the "Loop", a paved 50+ mile river park bike trail circling Tucson. Quoting a previous guest review, "Located at the base of Mt. Lemmon, in 20 minutes you can be huffing your way up one of the iconic rides in American cycling."

Close to beautiful Agua Caliente Park, perfect for picnics. Near Udall Park with paved walking track, dog park & indoor recreation center. 15 minutes from the iconic Gaslight Theater, Trail Dust Town, Park Place Mall, cinemas and numerous restaurants. 25 minutes from Colossal Cave. Close to several horse boarding stables on the East/Northeast side of Tucson. 10 minutes from Pantano Stables which offers group & private horseback trail rides. For U of A parents--20 mins/11 miles from the University of Arizona.

The Casa has gorgeous views of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Thimble Peak (a Tucson landmark) and Mt. Lemmon. Mt. Lemmon offers cooler temperatures, beautiful pine trees, a lake and recreational opportunities including numerous campgrounds, picnic sites and hiking trails amongst stunning terrain, gorgeous rock formations and scenic views. At the summit is Summerhaven, which has restaurants, gift shops, etc. Also at the 9,157' peak is an operating ski slope in the winter months (normally providing skiing & snowboarding from late December into March or April) and 'sky rides' on the ski lift in the summer months.

Closest public Golf Courses: Arizona National (4 miles away), Forty Niners (4 miles), Dorado (5 miles), Ventana Canyon (8 miles), Randolph North & South & Driving Range (9 miles), Fred Enke (11 miles), La Paloma (12 miles), El Rio (13 miles), Quail Canyon (15 miles), Silverbell (15 miles), Del Lago (20 miles). Numerous other courses about 30 miles away: Starr Pass Country Club-Rattler (among Arizona's top 10 and the nation's top 100), Golf Club at Dove Mountain (designed by Jack Nicklaus & host of The World Golf Championships Accenture Match Play), The Gallery Golf Club at Dove Mountain (acknowledged as one of Golfweek's Best Modern Courses), Highlands at Dove Mountain (Arthur Hills design), Omni Tucson National (home of the PGA tour), Quarry Pines, Crooked Tee at Arthur Pack Park, The Views, SaddleBrooke Ranch.

20 minutes from central Tucson's famous 4th Avenue historic shopping district with eclectic boutiques, shops and cafes. 20 minutes from La Encantada Plaza with upscale retail shopping and fine-dining.

The location feels as though it is miles away from civilization...a perfect private retreat! But once you take the long driveway out, you have immediate access to everything metropolitan. Literally the perfect balance of Tucson's Old Pueblo rustic charm and the City of Tucson's modern conveniences in the Sonoran Desert!
