About Shelly Carlson and Andy Slater
Andy and I have lived in Arizona for over 20 years. We raised two children in Phoenix and both kids have attended Arizona State University. We moved to Civano in 2010 to enjoy a quieter lifestyle. Andy is an Engineer for a local firm and I work remotely from home for a fresh Potato Grower & Shipper. We live in Civano and the neighborhood is our point of refuge each day where we take long walks with our dog, Sasha, enjoy the local wildlife and visit with the neighbors.
Shelly Carlson and Andy Slater purchased this House in 2009
Why Shelly Carlson and Andy Slater chose Civano
We use FRAGRANCE FREE products in our Rolytons Lane Home. All laundry detergents and dish washing cleaners are free from dyes and fragrances. Household cleaners are limited to white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, baking soda and bleach for the bathroom fixtures. Bathroom bath and hand soaps are 365 Free and Clear. Rolystons Lane was our first house we purchased in Civano. I searched out every consignment shop and antique store to find that right piece of furniture or art to blend each room into a comfortable space. Every room has it's own character and you will feel rested after spending a few days. The kitchen is well stocked with upgraded All -Clad, Calphalon, and Le Creuset pots and all appliances are stainless steel. There's a gas bar-b-que (new June 2016) located on the back porch. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and wireless hi-speed internet works throughout the house. We installed a new Master Walk-in Shower with grab bars in July, 2016. There's a bicycle in the garage for your convenience and the lemon tree in back is ripe for the picking! We will greet you upon arrival with complimentary snacks, wine, and breakfast fixn's. If you arrive late in the evening, I will have a frozen pizza in the freezer! We want you to feel at home the minute you walk through the door.

A desert home away from home!
This was my second winter get away at this property. Shelly and Andy are wonderful hosts! The house is immaculate and ultra comfy. I especially love that the house is near Saguaro Park East which is perfect for hiking and sunset viewing.
Great House and Neighborhood, even better hosts
If you are not lucky enough to book this house, check with the owner, they have others in the area. The little details and the big-picture-vision this owner has makes it one of the best houses we rent anywhere. This was the second year we rented this house and already booked with the owner for a third year.
Clean, comfy, cozy sums up the house. The neighborhood is very quiet and cute. And for the tri-fecta, the owner's details including nice mattresses and linens, comfy furniture, supplies for breakfast including eggs, bacon, OJ, muffins, creamer and coffee; a complementary bottle of wine and delicious snacks are a nice touch after a long day of travel to get there for us. Each bedroom has a TV and a good selection of channels. The BBQ is easy to use and heat consistently. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies and the basics (salt pepper and other seasonings).
Grocery store is close by for cooking at home. Airport and Downtown Tucson and easy drive. Looking forward to our next stay.
The gift of hospitality and they're going fragrance free!
Shelly and husband Andy are remarkable in that they, Shelly especially, really have the gift of hospitality. This is rare and we deeply appreciate it. After an earlier guest had introduced similar concepts, Shelly decided to take this property fragrance free when I also inquired about the topic (asthma and allergies). The property is not completely fragrance free yet, but is really close to it. Just remarkable to my husband and me that we were able to stay in this lovely home with such success. What a treat! And of course, it's also better for the environment, so that's an added bonus. The home is just as it appears in the photographs, and is delightfully clean. Our hosts even added a Christmas tree to the living room, which we really enjoyed! This is by far, BY FAR, the best vacation rental we have found.
Fantastic home away from home
This is our 2nd time here at this beautiful house. Shelley and Andy are the nicest and most hospitable hosts you could ever have. Very quiet neighbors, close to shopping and not far from town. Looking forward to our next visit to Tucson, we hate to leave.
Perfect Civano Charmer
Superb property, in safe and friendly neighbourhood with easy access to all that this part of Southern Arizona has to offer.
From the moment we arrived, the attention to detail was obvious.
It is clear that Shelly goes that extra mile in all aspects. Her styling, decoration, quality of linens etc are of the highest standard.
Shelly herself was warm and friendly from the moment we contacted her about the property and location, and nothing was too much to ask. Everything was as described or better (which in my experience is often not the case), and we were genuinely overwhelmed by the quality and nature of the "welcome basket" that greeted us on arrival. If only every vacation rental came with a Shelly, life would be a lot simpler.
Needless to say, this rental certainly merits "5 stars".
A big thank you to Shelly and Andy for all their hospitality during our stay in Civano.
Would not hesitate to recommend, or rent again ourselves, when next in Tucson. PERFECT.

A desert beauty
What a wonderful time we had in Tucson and at this fabulous home in such a wonderful community of Civano. Shelly could not have been more gracious. She has thought of everything in this home. We found it to be close to everything we wanted to do in Tucson including the Sabino Canyon, Colossal Caves, Bike tour of Tucson, Botanical Gardens and the campus of University of Arizona. The pool was nice and just a short walk from the home. We adored the Civano Coffee Shop and were delighted to find that they also serve ice cream! Don't miss visiting the Civano Nursery. Just overall a great, comfortable home with everything you would need for either a long or shorter stay. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to be back there again some day.
Short drive to the Fred Enke Golf Course, Saguaro National Park, Colossal Caves, Kartchner Caverns, and Pima Aviation Museum. Short hour drive to Mr. Lemmon for skiing and site-seeing.
