About Cynthia Lester
We moved to the desert from Santa Cruz CA when my husband retired in 2000. I call it exchanging ocean for sky! We built a casita in 2007 to be able to share the magic with friends and guests! That rental is vrbo #125370. This year we created this lovely suite integral with our home but gives guests complete privacy. It is 300+feet designed for maximum efficiency and use of space. Think Euro style use of smaller spaces.Guests have all of nature and the xeriscaped pool to enjoy at your leisure.
Cynthia Lester purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Cynthia Lester chose Tucson
Because it is surrounded by the Mountain Parks and the reservation of the Tohono O Odham tribe. 5 minutes to the Desert Museum! 30 minutes to all the activity downtown. Opportunities for day trips abound: Bisbee, Tombstone, Tubac, San Xavier del Bac, Cochise Stronghold and much more...then back to peace and quiet and life on the Nature Channel!And all our neighbors feel exactly the same. Such a special place!

Chic digs in remote desert setting
Cynthia's suite is beautifully appointed with modern, comfortable furniture and striking folk art. The essentials are there: great bed, fast wifi, good tv options. There are wonderful sunset views from the little patio, and the pool setting is beautiful, but the pool--like all we've encountered in Tucson-- isn't warm enough for swimming until mid April or so. Bunnies and birds visit regularly. And Cynthia is a friendly and accommodating host.
As others have mentioned, the Sonoran Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park are an easy 15 minute drive away, and we hiked in both often during our two week stay.
We decided that the suite is probably most appropriate for a short stay, for folks who don't plan to do a lot of touring outside of hiking in the parks. First, it is a long way to town and the freeways. Another is that it is small, and the kitchenette serves only for very simple meals. The fridge is the mini version, which holds about 2 days worth of food, and the nearest supermarket is 15 miles away. There are no restaurants nearby except for a pizza/ BBQ house about 5 miles away. But for a short stay by folks who want to be out in nature and away from traffic and towns, it could be the ideal choice.
Lovely quiet suite near beautiful scenery.
My Sweetheart and I enjoyed a lovely stay in Saguaro Suite. Peaceful and quiet with the beautiful desert right outside our door. Cynthia was a wonderful host and the suite contained everything we needed for a relaxing visit. The suite is extremely close to the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park which was ideal for us.
Such a nice stay in a beautiful quiet area
We love it here in the desert. The apartment is nicely equipped and comfortable. It’s close to hiking and mountain biking and not close to the city and that is just what we’re looking for.
Great little one bedroom apartment attached to the main house. Private entry.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this cute little place. The bedroom is separated from the tv room/kitchenette area by a well appointed bathroom thus keeping the noise level down in the bedroom if one of us wanted to stay up. It is quite isolated where the house is located but convenient to Saguaro National Park (west side) and to Tucson Mountain Park. Cynthia was very helpful with suggestions for places to go when we arrived too.
The apartment was great, beautiful views.
Cynthia was a great host. The apartment had everything we needed and relaxing on the porch in the afternoons was very nice. Great location for going to Saguaro NP.
Peace among the saguaros
Great getaway. Out of Tucson but within 15 min of the city.......if that's what you like. Nestled next to the Saguaro National Park West, this quiet little suite offers everything that you could want. Privacy and the beauty of the desert out your front door. Next to miles of hiking in the National Park as well as the Tucson Park the suit is the perfect situation for those looking for a relaxing time in the desert. Cynthia is a great host. The suite is perfectly charming and very comfortable. We spent a week here in February and loved every minute of it. Of course the weather is great almost all of the time. Minutes from down town and the desert museum. Just a wonderful spot to relax.
There are an abundance of cultural and recreational activities. You can be as quiet, contemplative and creative as you like. Choreograph your Southwest experience!
