About Ross Bell

I am a successful screenwriter/film producer based in Hollywood. I was drawn to Arizona for the total change of pace and the calming effect the desert had on me. Originally from Australia, I missed the laid back attitude of my homeland and feel I have found it again in the open spaces and still, star-filled nights of the Sonoran Desert.

Ross Bell purchased this condo in 2006

Why Ross Bell chose Tucson

This is my second home, the perfect getaway from Los Angeles. Nestled in the foothills of Tucson's famous Santa Catalina Mountains and only a few miles from the desert wonders of the Saguaro National Park, recognised the world over for the groves of Saguaro cactus that we all know and love from countless Westerns, this is the perfect desert retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner


I am so grateful to you for giving me

such an incredibly low rental fee, given

be! All the comforts of home and so

serene. I'm very touched and appreciative.

You've created such a wonderful place

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Ross's place met our requirements perfectly, it is a well set up place, comfortable for 5 or 6 people, and has everything you need. The location is also nice, and Ross was a very responsive host. 5 stars.

Great location, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The proximity to Sabino Canyon (1/2 mile) was great as we love to go hiking. There was easy access to many grocery stores and restaurants within a 5 mile radius. On site there is a heated swimming pool and hot tub which we thoroughly enjoyed. As for the unit itself we were a bit disappointed. It is long past an update, the carpet is very old and coming unraveled in spots. The linens are quite used (we went out and bought a set of towels) and overall the place just needs some TLC. The owner was very accommodating when we had an issue with the tub not draining (plumber there next day). The furnishings were also quite old ( some of the wood veneers were coming off the dining table and dressers).

All in all if the unit were updated it would be a great place to spend time enjoying everything Tucson has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, Roger, and for enquiring about booking again next year. I have followed up on your comments. The unit has now been re-carpeted, new linen has been supplied and the dining room table has been replaced. The condo is back to its former glory.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 5 during our 6-week stay in Tucson. The location is beautiful, close to restaurants and recreation and the mountains, but a little off the beaten path and quiet. The pool and tennis courts kept us busy and are well kept. The condo itself is big, and the en suite master was very nice for time outs from the kiddos. We spent many nights enjoying a bottle of wine out on one of the 2 porches, and we cooked many delicious meals in the well stocked kitchen. The only minor issue we had was resolved immediately, and Ross was great to deal with. We loved our time in Tucson and hope to return next year!

Spacious condo close to Sabino Canyon.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the spaciousness and wonderful art work and phtographs throughout the codo.

The kitchen had every thing we needed. At night, being on the second floor, we coud open windows on three sides and let the cool desert air flow through.

Best of all, we were only one-half mile from Sabino Canyon, which we walked to several times. This condo is the one we will stay at when we come to Tucson in the future.
