Stayed here in March 21 with a group of 7. We have traveled to Tucson 20+ times, and were looking for a house with a floorplan that was open to the outside, had views of the surrounding hills and cactus, great outdoor living spaces, and a relaxed comfortable feel. This property checks all of those boxes and then some. The floorplan has very spacious living areas, and the oversize windows bring the outside in. The outdoor deck areas and furniture allow you to be outside in the sun or in the shade whichever you prefer. The “spool” is perfect size for sipping an evening beverage, and there is an outdoor grill if you want to cook on your own. The wood-burning fireplace inside was a treat. The location is great for golf, hiking and biking, and Diane was great about helping with local arrangements. There are places that you can stay that are closer to restaurant selections, but we were very interested in having a desert experience, and this property is situated in a beautiful canyon area where every view reminds you that you are in the desert. Plus, the Ritz offers several interesting and varied restaurant options 5 minutes away, and there are still a host of restaurants about 15-20 minutes toward town. There is a local property manager as well, and he was very responsive in regards to a small plumbing issue during our stay. The house is amazingly well stocked with provisions.
The owner clearly is focused on offering a house and experience that will make for a memorable vacation, and it shows. Strongly recommend this property.
