About the property

Territorial Style Ranch, 3 Bedroom, 2 BA, Just Minutes From The Best Shoppe

Located in the popular Foothills Clusters area is this classic territorial style home. Nestled in a quiet cul de sac surrounded by open space, mountain views, the west side elevated patio affords city views; abundant wildlife and spectacular sunsets set the scene for a fabulous get-away location. We have personally seen the following birds and animals in our yard: giant owl; giant hawk, bobcat, javelina, coyote, humming bird, rabbit and various other species. The daytime temperatures in the summer are about 4 degrees less than downtown because of our elevation and the nighttime temperatures in the winter run at least 5 degrees warmer because we are off of the valley floor.The neighborhood is well suited to walkers, hiking trail heads are just minutes away as well as world class golf courses. Five minutes to La Encantada mall offering upscale shopping and dining along with special events featuring music, wine tastings and art events throughout the year.

The house features awesome sunset views from the rear covered patio, a secluded pool, large gas grill and fully fenced yard. The two east side patios offer a view of the beautiful Catalina Mountains, numerous quail and hummingbirds. Master bedroom has queen bed, the two guest rooms have queen beds. The large living room includes a large wrap around leather couch for additional sleeping space for 2. WiFi and cable service is included in the rent. All linens, cooking and dishware are provided.

Lovely, well-located property and home

  • 5 of 5

Margo's house is located on the northern edge of Tuscon, very near the Santa Catalina mountains. (You can get to the finger rock trailhead in minutes.) The place is very comfortable, well-appointed, and spacious, but the highlight on this mid- to late-March week was surely the backyard that features lots of sitting areas, solar lights that twinkle in the evening, a nice grill and heaters, and a pool. Although it was unheated and quite cold, despite the 90-degree weather, our grandchildren adored it. We highly recommend this rental. Be sure to try Tucson Tamale company for takeout!

Great property inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Great experience and superb location set in the foothills. Perfect for access to the city, restaurants, hiking and cycling.

Designed for outdoor living and we dined outside most mornings and evenings.

The owner looks after her property and it looks like she is constantly upgrading it. Plus she is pleasant and very approachable.

We shall return to this property and would be happy to recommend it to family and friends.

Gorgeous Catalina Foothills

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to overstate just how beautiful and peaceful this location is, in the Catalina Foothills! It is gorgeous, with breathtaking views! We stayed here for Christmas and had a wonderful time with our family in this house. It is a very attractive and comfortable Southwestern style home with everything you need. The neighborhood is beautiful for walking, but it is also very conveniently located. It is only a few short miles from the glorious Sabino Canyon; as well as excellent shopping and sightseeing features. We have been visiting Tucson for many years, but this is the best place we have stayed so far. In addition, the owner was very conscientious and helpful in all our transactions. We hope to return soon!

Nice size for family!

It was the perfect location for a wedding at La Paloma Hotel. The owner was great, checking on us even though she was not in town. The home is very comfortable and filled with love.

Beautiful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to rent this beautiful home that was so close to fine dining and shopping. My husband and I wanted to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with our son who goes to the University of AZ. So we moved in and enjoyed ourselves for a week and a half.

We had everything we needed right there. Margo was such a wonderful host!

It was great to be able to treat the kitchen as my very own as I cooked the big meal. It was very well stocked with all of the cookware I required.

The three bedrooms were perfect for us since my son had a friend come over to stay a couple of nights. The view from the backyard of the mountains was stunning.

All and all it was a wonderful property and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a Tucson getaway!
