About Tracy

Jolene and Tracy are both native Tucsonans. Tracy grew up on a small horse ranch in the Tucson Mountains about a mile from the Saguaro Ranch Hideaway. We both love the outdoors especially the Sonoran Desert

Tracy started working construction right out of high school, using the hands on skills and common knowledge he learned as a kid working around the ranch to move up thorough the ranks. In 1996 he started his own contracting and development company. He has an intimate knowledge of Tucson and sounding areas.

Jolene grew up on the eastside of Tucson and is a graduate of the University of Arizona. She loved spending her youth hiking and camping around southern Arizona with her family.

Let us show you around and introduce you to Tucson!

Tracy purchased this villa in 2005

Why Tracy chose Tucson

The Tucson Mountains were developed with low density in mind. There are very few properties smaller than 3 acres therefore the traffic is considerably less and the wildlife more abundant due to the low impact.

All the comforts of home in a stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is gorgeous and in an amazing setting that made you feel as if you were in a very rural area, yet it was an easy drive to nice restaurants and other activities. We highly recommend this rental. Owners are very responsive to questions. House had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay.

I absolutely loved the place

  • 5 of 5

We were in Tucson for a graduation but didn’t want to overwhelm my sister so decide to rent a place. This place was perfect for us. The scenery was unbelievable, the sounds and sights were great. My only regret was that I wasn’t able to spend enough time at the place, since we had events to be at and participate.

The one thing I would mention is that the description on the home away website description of the place as having 2 bedroom and sleeps four. In talking to Tracy he mentioned that there was a air mattress available if needed.

Awesome place to enjoy the Sonoran desert

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at this lovely guest house in April. The house is lovely and sits on a quiet piece of property near Tucson Mountain Park and Saguaro National Park. We enjoyed mountain biking and hiking at the nearby Sweetwater Preserve as well as Tucson Mountain Park, and the birds were great. Both around the property and nearby. It's a short drive in to town, but also far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.

Great casita with awesome desert view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our time in this lovely casita surrounded by saguaros.......and relaxing in the hot tub under the starry sky added a pleasant romantic touch! The owners of this guesthouse that is located adjacent to their home are available to assist you but definitely respect your privacy during your stay. The views of the foothills from the patio that surrounds much of the property are incredible! Albertson's grocery store is a ten minute drive away to conveniently stock the kitchen and DVD rental is offered there too. Sabino Canyon and Mt. Lemmon are a short drive away, too. We were looking for a peaceful, private getaway for relaxation that was also a convenient drive to some of Tucson's nature attractions and this casita was a great find for us!

Saguaro Casita visit, Sept 25-30, 2015

  • 5 of 5

Not your average desert cabin, this house is a first class desert getaway with very comfortable home-style furnishings. The casita was designed to open out to the surrounding desert landscape with numerous large windows and doors to enjoy different aspects to the sun (or shade) and views of the desert scenery from inside or on the surrounding patios. We found the house to be beautiful, well-maintained, and secure in its location at the end of the road and adjacent to the owners house. We also immensely enjoyed the quiet, undisturbed setting, and the short drive to stunning desert hiking and the amazing Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum.

Owner's Response: Thanks you very much, we are blessed to live in such a great place and love to share our knowledge of the desert and the surrounding desert with out friends and guests. Tracy and Jolene Hardy

Relaxing in the Casita

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 18 month old son stayed at the Casita for a week this past December and enjoyed it immensely. The Casita was spacious and private, with gorgeous desert views, visiting wildlife, a comfortable hot tub and hiking near by. We spent the days hiking, enjoyed the desert museum and several local restaurants. Often we would cook and eat at home, enjoying the sunsets over a glass of wine. I can confirm that the charcoal grill works fine as we spent an afternoon smoking ribs and watching college football. The owners graciously provided a pack-and-play for our son--they live next door and were readily available by phone. It was a peaceful and private place to relax for our family, we can recommend it without reservation.

Owner's Response: I must admit I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with a "pack and plat" I had no idea what that was and had never heard of if, now I hear about them all the time. We are very happy that all worked out. Thanks for staying with us!
