About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath, Sleeps 4

This 2 Bedroom/2 Bath Sola Saddlebrooke home was built in 2011, but was so well cared for that this beautiful home looks like new. There are mountain views from all sides. There is absolutely nothing that you will need to bring with you...we have provided everything. We have another Saddlebrooke home with VRBO #189395, that we have rented out since 2006, so you can check out visitors reactions to that home and know that we out do ourselves. The home is located directly behind the tennis courts by the Desert View Theater/ Fitness Center, but we have a lot of bushes and trees in the yard so you hardly know that it is there.

About Sue Sorensen

My husband taught Physical Education for 32 years. He coached Men's Volleyball and won 7 Wisconsin State Titles. He is now retired. I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade science for 33 years, retiring in the spring of 2016. I have coached Volleyball (1 State Championship) and Golf (1 State Championship) for 33 years. I am loving retirement!!

Sue Sorensen purchased this house in 2011

Why Sue Sorensen chose Tucson & Southern Arizona

We have another home in the Saddlebrooke community, and thought that perhaps my parents would someday need our help with day to day living, so we built this home for them.

What makes this house unique

We have almost a third on an acre, which is fully enclosed by block (making it safe for pups!). There is a gate in the back that you can walk though and be right at the pool and fitness center. Everyone who has stayed here love it!!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful two bedroom home with an open floor plan located in the Saddlebrooke 55+ community.

Even though we did not cook while staying at this house, the large kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The spacious master bedroom and bathroom are located at the opposite end of the second bedroom and bathroom. The washer/dryer is a plus to have. Especially nice is the large covered patio with a table that seats 6. There is a gas grill for your use under the covered patio. Not far from the covered patio is a gas fireplace that has its own patio area. You will have a view of the mountains from the outdoor seating.

The house sits on a large lot so neighbors are not close to each other. The landscaping is beautiful.

We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, which is close to the house.

Sue was great to work with. She was quick to email/text responses.

We would stay here again if we came back to the Saddlebrooke area.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a wedding in Saddlebrooke and were so lucky to find this house to stay in. It was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Sitting on the patio in the morning with my coffee and the view started each day perfectly. Arrangements were easily made and Sue was wonderful to work with. Thank you very much for making our stay in Tucson so enjoyable.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We visited for 10 day in May, we wished we could of stayed longer. This home is warm and welcoming, and beautifully landscaped.

The views are unbeatable and the location within Saddlebrooke very convenient to both Desert View pool and clubhouse.

The owners Gary and Sue are wonderful and easy to work with. We would love to stay again.

Totally, Fabulous!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sue and Gary where a blast to meet. The townhouse is exceptionally clean and comfortable. I felt like we were sleeping in our own bed at home, so comfy. The home was equipped with everything you needed and more. Tasteful and upscale furnishings. The views were exceptional. We stayed month of December and owner decorated the outside for Xmas and most neighbors also too. Everyone we met was extremely friendly. Loved the neighborhood, golf courses are beautiful and club house had great food.

We would also consider buying at Saddlebrook and love to have Sue and Gary as neighbors. Thanks for a fun time. To our new friends love to come back and we will definitely stay in touch.

Comfortable private home

  • 5 of 5

Newer rental home with a super location for the Desert View Theater, pool, exercise room, ect. that is a walk behind your back door. If you have quests it is great to have split bedrooms in your home. A very private setting. You have super views from the side of your backyard and gorgeous views out front while you enjoy a cup a coffee and newspaper in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The yard is landscape professionally and very neat and clean.

The owners are awesome to work with and will get back to you immediately thru texting. They sure made it easy for us to work with them last year and this year. We had the pleasure of meeting them also.

Thank-you so much for sharing your home.. We do recommend this property very highly.

Excellent Rental - Spotless, Comfortable, Tasteful, Well Located and Owners Easy to Work With

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house which is very well located within the Saddlebrooke community. It is an open floor plan with a large kitchen and patio, big screen tv in the main room and dining areas inside and outside. It is spotless and has all the amenities you will need (with the minor exception that we couldn't find a corkscrew, which we had to borrow from my parents). The kitchen has plenty of plates, pots, pans, utensils and tupperware. The bathrooms were well stocked with plenty of towels, shampoo and body wash. There is a large master on one end and another fairly large bedroom at the other end of the house so the bedrooms offer privacy from one another. Everything in the house looks and feels new and well cared for. There are tvs in both bedrooms and cable tv as well as high speed internet. Everything was as pictured in the photos, though I am not sure they do the house justice as it feels very large and open when you are there and the photos don't convey the open airy feel.

The outdoor patio is very large and has seating for six. We heard people playing tennis just once during our stay and it was just a faint far off sound, nothing that would disturb your enjoyment of the property. We had no trouble using the pool and faciliites and liked the pool at the preserve the best.

The owners handled everything efficiently and are experienced at renting vacation homes. They are easy to work with by email and very responsive to questions. I would rent this property again in a heartbeat to visit my parents. But, I suspect it may be difficult to book in the future as it really is a wonderful property and I am sure that it will be occupied, especially in the busy season. It is a bit more expensive than the closest hotel nearby and less expensive than some of the other hotels nearby like the Hilton property, but it is vastly nicer and far closer to Saddlebrooke. Truly perfect for visiting family in this area or for a few weeks/months in the sun.

TIP: The property is within walking distance to one of the clubhouses with a pool and other amenities, but other than that, you will enjoy the Saddlebrooke area more if you have a car to get around as shopping and restaurants require a short drive.

Nearest Golf

Especially if you are a tennis player, or fitness buff...this property is one of the closest to the Desert View Community Center. But don't let it deter you if not, as the tennis courts are not often used and the beautiful views will make you love this home. Hot tub and pool is also just a short walk from the back yard.
