About the Property

Desert Solitaire is a private retreat that sleeps 8 in luxurious surroundings

Desert Solitaire is a 3700 square foot home straight out of the pages of Architectural Digest. It's situated on a large private lot in an exclusive gated community, nestled in a quiet Tortolita canyon with breathtaking views.

The home sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms and has 4 bathrooms. There are 4 dining areas (dining room, breakfast nook, kitchen bar, covered patio). Breathtaking views of the Tortolita canyon can be seen from most of the rooms including the living room, kitchen, family room and master bedroom which all have 2 walls of windows. The two covered outdoor living areas and "spool" (small pool with spa features including jets and waterfall) enjoy the same overwhelmingly gorgeous view.

The chef's kitchen has everything you need to prepare fabulous meals, from a fully stocked spice pantry with spices, herbs, oils, condiments, flour, sugar, coffee/tea, etc. to all of the kitchen equipment you might want: from a six burner gas stove, 3 burner grill, Cuisinart, blender, microwave, side by side fridge, double sink, double oven, and dishwasher to pots and pans, serving dishes and utensils, paper wares, etc. Prestocking of perishables, other food items and alcohol can be arranged through our concierge service.


There is a wet bar in the adjacent living room that is equipped with a wine refrigerator, ice maker and sink. It is close to the large well-appointed seating area just outside the door, where you can enjoy conversations and a book or cocktails with family and friends while gazing out at the spectacular view.

Other outdoor areas besides this large covered seating area include a covered dining area seating 6-8, with a wood-burning fireplace (there are 3 fireplaces in all) and the "spool". A 4th outdoor area is outside of king ensuite and affords a private setting for a quiet cup of coffee while you listen to the desert wake-up.

Desert Solitaire has 2 bedroom wings and sleeps 8 people in 4 beautifully decorated bedrooms (2 king suites, 1 queen suite and 1 double twin bedroom with a bath outside the door), each with its own television.

The master suite is down a private hall and boasts a king bed that looks out at private canyon views through 2 walls of windows. Aside from a large walk-in closet, television and fireplace, you can enjoy music from the built in sound system. The master bath is a relaxing oasis with a large, deep tub and spa-like shower. A door from the master bedroom opens to an outdoor fireplace and and gives you immediate access to the "spool".

There's also a fully equipped laundry room and 3 car garage for which you'll receive remote controls. Grocery and additional shopping is located conveniently just down the road.

And if you're looking for more than just relaxation in the privacy of Desert Solitaire's luxurious environment, you are surrounded by an array of options from golf, hiking and biking, to birding and nature photography, museums and galleries, a historic mission, a sports club and spa less than a mile from the entrance gate, horseback riding, ballooning, shopping and restaurants galore. The house is situated between 2 championship golf resorts: The Gallery Golf Club and The Golf Club at Dove Mountain (formerly the Ritz Carlton). A list of golf courses and activities will be provided to you.

Desert Solitaire is everything you could want in a vacation home. Well-stocked and beautifully appointed, it has 12 foot ceilings and a sunny, airy floor plan. Light and canyon views flood the home.

Do come experience Desert Solitaire for yourself. We look forward to hosting you in our beautiful and luxurious Sonoran desert home.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: My husband and I live in Colorado and have loved the Tucson-area since the 1990's, especially the areas of Marana that are tucked up in the Tortolita Mountains. We finally decided it was time to own a home in Arizona and knew from the moment we walked into this house, that Desert Solitaire was the perfect home for our family and our guests.

Why Dove Mountain, Marana, AZ, USA:
Desert Solitaire is truly private and quiet with overwhelmingly dramatic views of the Tortolita canyon surrounding it. From the moment you walk through the front doors looking straight out through 2 walls of windows at the beautiful Sonoran desert ridge, you will know that you have found the rental home for you, your family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Desert Solitaire is'away from everything yet close to everything that the Tucson-area has to offer. Trails start right outside of your front door and golf at The Gallery Golf Club is 1.2 miles away. The Golf Club at Dove Mountain (formerly the Ritz Carlton) is just over 2 miles away. Fining dining is offered at The Gallery and Ritz Carlton with many more options 'off mountain' The grocery store and other shopping is minutes down the road. Concierge service and car service is available on request. Responsive, friendly and helpful local management.
