About the property

Two-story, spacious, 2800 sf, 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath & loft. Mountain view, pool.

Short video tour of inside of home:

Escape the heat in our refreshing pool or sit pool-side in the shade and enjoy a cold drink. The outdoor patio table seats 6 and is perfect for an outdoor bbq or family dinner while you enjoy the fantastic views of Sombrero Mountain. Enjoy an after-dinner gathering around the portable fire pit while you enjoy gazing at the stars or views of the other surrounding mountains.

Walk around the back of the house for another stunning view of the mountains and enjoy the shady tree and open spaces of our spacious lot.

The inside of our home is a spacious 2-story 2,800 square feet with high vaulted ceilings for a roomy feeling of quiet and relaxation, yet perfect for classy indoor/outdoor socializing. The room layout and flow lend themselves to a natural flow of simultaneous indoor/outdoor/poolside entertainment! How fun!

Relax on our cozy sectional leather couch (you’ll never know the nightmare story we have about this local furniture store!) and enjoy cuddling up with a good book. The fireplace is a perfect spot on cold nights and adds to the atmosphere on any other day.

The formal sitting room (we call it our ‘Egyptian Room’) is perfect for family and friends socializing (tea kettle and coffee maker both available for your taste preference and your mood). The formal dining room is a modern, all glass table that accommodates 6 and extends to accommodate 8.

You might need to play rock-paper-scissors to see who gets the master bedroom because it’s well worth it! This spacious, ground-floor bedroom offers a King bed with plenty of room to move around. As you wake up, you get a view of the back patio and peaceful cooing of birds and pigeons who have become part of the family. The sliding door takes you straight out to the backyard. The Master bath is spacious and includes both shower and jetted tub for a relaxing bath while you enjoy an unobstructed view of the mountains. Wait till you see the walk-in closet! You will never have to worry about over packing ever again with the ample space it provides.

The kitchen is a master chef’s dream come true. With abundant space for two cooks to feel perfectly content producing their own masterpieces while eager guests observe, seated at the bar, snacking and drinking, and entertaining.

The (gated, toddler-safe) upstairs is perfect for privacy from downstairs activities. There are 2 private bedrooms with queen beds, and a shared bathroom with his and hers sinks, shower/tub. There is also a large open den for TV watching, games, and play area. Can accommodate an additional 2 people or 2+ children on a hide-a-bed, or: slumber parties!

Also available, the open, organized, spacious 3-car garage with space for 2 cars you can store your golf clubs.

Amenities include a high capacity washer and dryer, all kitchen appliances and needs, towels, and toiletries.

New upstairs AC. Both upstairs and downstairs AC have smartphone enabled programmable controllers.

About Nick and Sandra Lockard

We are originally from Portland, Oregon. We moved to Tucson in 2013 and bought the house in 2014. We love Tucson and love the outdoors, mountain views and hiking and this area lends itself to all those things.

Nick and Sandra Lockard purchased this house in 2014

Why Nick and Sandra Lockard chose Tucson

While looking for the perfect home, we searched in all parts of Tucson and settled on this house because of its spacious and airy feel and brightness. You feel relaxed as soon as you come in through the front door. It also stays cool for most of the day. We were looking for a big kitchen and open space, views of the mountains and a beautiful backyard with a pool. And we found the perfect place!

We have made several updates to the home to make it more cozy and homey and we hope you find your experience relaxing and comfortable.

We selected our furniture with care and much thought to give each room a special feel and theme. The formal living room is called the Egyptian Room because the furniture is from Egypt, where Sandra's family is from. Several of our wall decor are also heirlooms from our grandparents so throughout the house you will see some modern and some antic furniture, which adds to the atmosphere of the home.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home in a great location- well equipped and close to local shopping and dining facilities, yet quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Very spacious and tastefully decorated and furnished. We had a wonderful time in Nick's home. He is a great host, communicates well and there was even a nice cold beer, wine and popcorn awaiting our arrival! I will definitely recommend this rental to friends, family and colleagues in USA, Germany, Switzerland and UK. Hoping to be able to visit again later this year!

Wonderful holidays await!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a nice, quiet neighborhood, yet in easy reach of local dining, and shopping locations. Spacious and well equipped, tastefully decorated and furnished. Nick and Sandra are very welcoming and a pleasure to rent from, they even left cold beer, wine and popcorn to welcome us! Absolutely plan on renting their beautiful home again, hopefully in November and would always recommend them to friends everywhere.

spacious and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this house for almost a month in December to celebrate the holidays somewhere warm. My son was only 18 months and I felt the house was well equipped for children. They have a baby gate upstairs and the pool area is fenced off.

All around I thought the house was very spacious with a downstairs and an upstairs family room. We had a large group and plenty of space for all of us. I love the master bedroom with a small jaccuzi tub and walk-in closet.

The house it's a short front to downtown and had easy access to freeway, so it was nice to bypass all that traffic.

An excellent home

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of going to a party at their

home. Despite the number of people, it was very

comfortable; there was a lot of things going on in

different areas, which made for a very interesting and

happy evening.

The home, placed in a nice community in the

Northwest part of Tucson, is remarkably large when

viewed from the inside. There are two stories, arrived

at by a dramatic staircase. A well-appointed kitchen

has a view to the outdoor pool and patio and is

adjacent to a nice-sized family area, complete with


The first floor includes a formal living area and dining


This is a home planned for entertaining as well as a

quiet evening.

I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a

spot in Tucson.

Great stay in Marana!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Nick and Sandra's place for a week of R & R this spring. Their house was more than we expected. The living/dining area was so open and inviting! The pool area was nice as well with nice views of the Tucson Mountains to the west. We will certainly book their house on our next trip to Tucson!
