About the Property

3 bedroom 2 bath with Mountain and Tucson Valley views. Watch the city sparkle.

Great recreational property with views in all directions that will amaze. New appliances, new heated pool, new bathrooms with custom made cabinets, outdoor shower, outdoor grill area, with very large deck over looking the Tucson valley. Property has 3 outdoor spaces surrounded by 3.5 acres of Mountain desert scenery. It has 2 large indoor sitting areas, the other overlooking the valley and desert. Master has private custom designed bath room which includes a large shower with water surround system. Other bedrooms have queen size beds with private closets. Hardwood floors thru-out the home with Mexican tile accents.

Owner has 2 separate listings with VRBO. If you find a conflict with dates, please review listing number 865621 as another option.

It turns out that many of our guests have used the property to visit a child attending College in Tucson. Since it is so convenient to the campus of the University of Arizona, this property is a great place to visit and provide a relaxing few days away from campus spending time with family.

The property was purchased from the original owner who was in a wheel chair, so most of the house is handicap accessible. Wide hallway to bedroom, 36' doors into bedrooms and bathroom.

Since we bring our dogs to this property every time we come out, we put a small pet dropping area in the isolated area in the back. This makes this area as easy as opening one of three patio doors to let the dogs out without concern of desert creatures.

If quick access to great food is your calling, then your a short drive down into the valley and less then 5 minutes to The Mosaic Mexican Restaurant. An Iconic Mexican establishment. In addition as you get closer to Down Town, Just 10 minutes away, you can find many great options. If the Gem Show is your draw to Tucson, this property is 10 minutes to some of the largest and most popular events.

The house is stocked with basic food supplies, ready to feel like your home in an instant,

What's really nice is that this home is 2 minutes away from great hiking trails, and also a desert walking park. You can check the western Tucson trail system on-line. The Yetman Trail is only 1.5 miles to the trail head, just straight south on Camino de Oeste. Your 15 minuted to the Sonora Desert Museum. All this, while surrounded by Saguaro Cactus, and a private feel you can rarely find while being so close to all that Tucson offers.

To summarize, this property is centrally located to quick access to Tucson, yet located up against the Tucson Mountains with Views that will amaze, and outdoor activities with-in minutes, with great biking, and hiking out the front door.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are life long Minnesota residents who, with a suggestion from my wife decided to leave the Minnesota winters, and enjoy the Desert during the winter months. We live on our Family Farm with our Horses and dogs. As soon as we can't take the cold anymore, we pack-up our animals and come back to the Desert. The Desert has filled our hearts and we enjoy the contrast between our Farm and the Desert. We feel Blessed. We own Long term rental property in Rochester Minnesota, and two properties in Tucson. My wife has been an Interior Designer for many of the Doctors at The Mayo Clinic, and we started to purchase properties to utilize her talent to renovate those properties. We Fell in Love with the architectural look of the older traditional Tucson Homes, and rehabilitated 2 of them with modern amenities while maintaining their original feel. This is a totally renovated home and a unique property.

Why the Owner Chose Ranchos Del Oeste, AZ, USA:
We decided this property is a perfect vacation rental. It's a world away from Tucson, yet minutes away from all the fun of Tucson. Sitting out on the deck at night is amazing, and time can fly away while you watch the towns lights twinkle, and the stars shine. As we lived in this property last winter during the renovation period of this property, we decided right away that the combination of how easy it was to get around Tucson, yet feel like you are on vacation away from things, including the fantastic views makes this a unique property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Views, Views, Views. Easy access to Tucson, yet feels like your a world away.
