About Christine Austin

I enjoy traveling and designing homes. As you will see, the home has a sophisticated, elegant look. It is comfortable all year round and patios on both sides give you choice to enjoy sun or shade. Screened porch also provides for outdoor sleeping. Sunset views are wonderful.

Christine Austin purchased this house in 2006

Why Christine Austin chose Catalina Foothills

This foothills home is located in a neighborhood with great mountain and city views, biking and walking areas and close to Rillito bike and walking trail. It is quiet, safe and convenient to shopping and many good restaurants. It is 6 minutes from Catalina mountain hiking trails, Sabino Canyon, theaters and the Encantada Mall and 3 minutes from Whole Foods and other shopping.

What makes this house unique

The grape arbor is special as morning sun fills it and the adjacent sleeping porch. It's a favorite breakfast spot. The southern porch has mountain and city views and very comfortable furniture. It is perfect for entertaining and comfortable afternoons in the sun. The family areas surrounding the open kitchen have views on one side and dining and fireplace on the other. An atrium off this room adds light and beauty. The master bedroom has large windows looking out to the garden and the mountains.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent! We stayed for two months while we were moving to Tucson and waiting to move in to our home. The home was not only beautiful but is stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. House cleaning was much appreciated and was provided every other week. Christine was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone!

Elegance and Conveniece

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for more than two months in this elegant, quiet, beautiful, and comfortable home in the Catalina foothills. Christine has tastefully decorated the interior with exotic artifacts and comfortable furniture. The open kitchen is spacious and very well equipped. The outside is arranged to allow for intimate conversations, reading, and beautiful views. We found the landscaping lovely. We hiked several miles every day along the very quiet neighborhood streets, especially to the north. We saw lots of wildlife and birds. The location is great: close to Whole Foods, Sabino Canyon, splendid restaurants, and shopping. Christine, the owner, is very attentive and helpful. In every respect we loved our stay.

Older Couple from Minneapolis

  • 5 of 5

This is a really beautiful home on a quiet street in an older neighborhood in a desirable part of town (lower NE foothills). The interior decor has a unique aesthetic which we really loved. The owner has been very creative in providing places to sit outside of the house in every direction - north, south, east, west -- so no matter what the weather, one can be outside. We stayed there for two months and really loved it. It was quiet and very relaxing. The interior and exterior gardens, the screened in sleeping porch, and the patios with fountains were all lovely. The view from the front part of the kitchen through the courtyard was especially wonderful -- you can see the downtown city lights and the sunset. We found it spacious for two adults, and comfortable with four, but 6 people would be a stretch unless two were small children. No cable when we were there (but the owner might have gotten it since we left); direct TV is available if you bring a computer. Tucson is a car-centric city, so walking and biking in the immediate vicinity are limited unless one feels very comfortable mingling with 4-8 lane traffic. Wonderful hiking 15-30 minutes away by car, horseback riding about 40 minutes away.
