About Chris Brodrick
We love the desert southwest of America and Tucson. The wildlife, the desert landscapes, and the rich cultural history of the area are what drew us here.
Chris Brodrick purchased this House in 2009
Why Chris Brodrick chose Tucson
We purchased the home years ago. It needed a little attention at the time, so we gave the home the TLC it deserved. After building the pool and outdoor terraced landscaping, we wanted to share the beauty of the place.

Thanks Chris. This was the first experience renting a property for an extended stay, met all of our expectations. It was quite private and quiet but still close to everything we needed. Hiking opportunities were very close. Owner had lots of information in their welcome booklet and on their book shelf of things to do (including maps) and places to eat. We ate most of our meals at the house, kitchen was set up for that. Hot tub was nice to have, my only wish was that the pool would have been heated. We are hoping to make a return visit. It shows 4 stars only because I didn't know how to get the rate to accept a 4 and a half
A wonderful stay
We enjoyed everything about this lovely home (except the steep driveway). We appreciated the location, the design of the house, tasteful furnishing, comfortable beds, well equipped and provisioned kitchen and best of all the view from the hot tub.
My only regret is that we found so much to do around Tucson including an incredible food scene that we did not spend nearly enough time at the house. You could easily be happy just staying there all day enjoying the views. Sunrise is breathtaking ... Nearby hiking trails .. easy trip to anywhere in or around town. The house is spotless. The master bedroom immense. We found the garage door opener invaluable. We only used the front door the first day on arrival and the last to leave (with tears in our eyes). Chris, the owner is responsive via email. I had questions prior to booking and after arriving and the responses were thorough and prompt.
Excellent place to spend a few peaceful days in Tucson
Especially enjoyed sitting on the patio in the morning and at night. Great view! Peaceful!
House was well equipped and had plenty of room for two couples. Hot tub was nice.
Peaceful and Relaxing Retreat
We loved our stay at Desert Escape. Everything was just as advertised in VRBO. The kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed. the view of Tucson was wonderful. We loved sitting by the pool first thing in the morning and last thing at night, such a great way to start and end our day. We would definitely stay at this home again.
AHHHH-MAZING!!!! You're picking the right home for your stay in the Tucson area.
We were hoping to find a quiet, peaceful, private desert escape and wow - did we find it here. This beautiful home is perfection. Nestled in the foothills, the views are expansive and utterly calming. The mountains shape the horizon with the Tucson lights sparkling at their feet. We wanted spaciousness for body mind and spirit and we got it! The home itself is utterly comfortable, well-stocked, and clean, the surrounding property sprinkled with the magical Saguaros and a host of other desert spirits. For being "close" to town, we felt set down in our own private oasis! The loudest sound we heard all week was the buzzing of bees in the palo verde trees. True medicine for the soul.
Chris was easy to work with, kind and communicative. I cannot imagine a more perfect place we could have stayed. This home is as advertised - 100% perfection. With deep thanks to Chris for sharing this magical place with us, S & K
