About Karine Maillard

My name is Karine and we own this property since 2006.

Our family had moved from California, and we fell in love with this beautiful Santa Fe house! We remodeled it with a great excitement, and enjoyed it everyday we lived there...

We decided to buy another property as our daughter needed a farm to raise animals (she is studying to become a Vet!) but we did not want to sell this place...we'll be back for retirement!

Now it is all yours, and we will be happy to provide you with a wonderful experience in the Desert.

Welcome to La Hacienda del Mayar!

Karine Maillard purchased this house in 2006

Hacienda del Mayar

tom (franklin, ny, usa)

Review submitted: October 17, 2012 Date of arrival: October 3, 2012

Hacienda Del Mayar was perfect for my my three children, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren accompanied my wife and I to Tucson. Spacious and well appointed, this ranch on the edge of the desert captured the essence of what a vacation should be in the southwest. Everything was well thought out and our stay required little guesswork as we settled into our accommodations. The children loved the pool and the setup was such that we were able to entertain our Tuscon friends in the area in reciprocation for their hospitality.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Relaxing time in a lovely setting!

  • 5 of 5

The Hacienda is a comfortable home in a lovely setting of native Sonoran Desert Habitat, and includes all of the amenities a visiting family, whether large or small, could possibly need.

We came to chase birds around the SE Arizona desert and various "Sky Islands," and for some quiet relaxation. This location fit the bill and then some. The Hacienda is located across from Saguaro National Park (East), and allows easy access for early morning day trips to the Rincon Mts., and the Santa Catalina Mts.

After an early day of hiking, birding, and general exploring, the pool and cabana provided the necessary space for relaxation and relief from the afternoon heat well into the evening.

We highly recommend this property for a large or small family, and plan on a return trip someday to this lovely home and area.

Our Amazing week at La Hacienda del Mayar!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this beautiful home in Tucson for the week of our youngest son's wedding after they both graduated from U. of A. I can say with the ultimate sincerity that it was absolutely PERFECT for our large family and the many guests we had there throughout the week for all the wedding "festivities". Working with the owner Karine on the details of our visit was a breeze from the start, and I can't tell you how gracious and accommodating she and her husband were to make sure we would be comfortable and ready for our celebration!

When my husband and I walked through the door the first time, we were so happy that the house and the amenities were actually even better than the pictures and the description. The house was very clean, well-maintained and had a wonderful Southwestern flare which was what we were looking for to share with all our Northern and Eastern family and friends. I can't tell you how many people commented on how wonderful the house was and "where did you find this amazing rental?" It was private, peaceful, and perfect! The bedrooms were fantastic, enough bathrooms for everyone and the casita right next to the house was a great place for our one daughter and her husband who have two little boys age 4 and 5 and a new baby.

The actual wedding venue was the Saguaro Buttes Community Church which was beautiful setting and only an 8 minute drive from the house. Also, even though you seem to be out in the middle of nowhere in the picturesque mountains, you have shopping, gas, pharmacy, pizza, and a Starbucks only minutes away from the house. Couldn't have been a better location for everyone. There is always some last minute running for this and that on vacation and especially for a wedding so that was wonderful.

Would we recommend this property? ABSOLUTELY! To anyone and everyone! And thank you again to owners Karine and Jean-Michel for making our stay wonderful and stressless. We will always have great memories of the wedding week and the fabulous house we stayed in!

We had a great time at Hacienda del Mayar. We rented both the big house and the casita for our daughter's graduation from U of A. We ALL had a fabulous time. The house was very spacious with many bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and showers great. It was so peaceful in the area, and we all relaxed. My sister and I walked from the house to the entrance to Saguaro National Park off Broadway, and walked in the park. It was great, but glad we did it early in the AM because it got hot. Even in May. We had a party at the house, and EVERYTHING you could think of in a house was there. My sister and brother-in-law stayed in the casita and enjoyed their quiet time too. Each morning my sister sat on her front area with her coffee. Her last day she did not, and that was luck. A family of javelinas walked by. The dad at the rear was a big guy. We were able to appreciate lots of the wildlife in the area. We saw 2 snakes in the park, heard the coyote at night, saw many jack rabbits and prairie dogs (we think) and then the javelinas. I location was a little far from the campus though, but we were lucky we did not have to go to campus but twice. And our daughter had many parties to go to so was not coming back to the house after the parties. I would definitely recommend this beautiful, relaxing, well stocked house in a peaceful setting. And Karin was wonderful to deal with. :) Thank you Karin for the great time.

perfect desert getaway

  • 5 of 5

The 6 of us traveling from Oregon appreciated the pool and surrounding seating to enjoy relaxation, the views and the sounds of desert animals and birds. While the temperatures were much hotter than we were used to, the house remained comfortable and the pool was a welcome area to cool off in.

The location was perfect in relation to our areas of interest: downtown, Mt. Lemon, golf courses, and the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. We got tired of the crawling traffic on Speedway, but that was the only downside.

The kitchen supplies were more than adequate & the beds comfortable. Everyone was very happy wiith the house.

Wonderful place for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at Hacienda del Mayar. The house was quite comfortable, and provided great space for our entire family gathering (5 adults and 4 children). We really appreciated having four full bathrooms with that many people. The house was very clean and was well equipped even for our large group. Our grandkids enjoyed the spa and pool. One day they spent six hours in the pool - we had to drag them out.

The location is terrific. Felt like we were out in the country, but a new Safeway grocery store, Walgreens, and restaurants were less than 10 minutes away. BTW, we liked Saguaro Corners for bar food (burgers, etc., and a great beer selection). The views from the house are spectacular; one morning there was a gorgeous red sky at sunrise. We took photos that could be mistaken for sales brochure material. Hiking trails and an entrance to the park (Saguaro National Park East) are within a couple miles so it was easy for us to get out and explore.

Last but not least, we were so impressed with Karine’s responsiveness and helpfulness. An example; the microwave died on the day before Easter. Even though we told Karine not to worry about it until after the holiday, her husband came over to check it out and Karine followed up to buy a new one on Easter and have it installed on Monday. She is fantastic!

We would definitely come back. In fact, we tried to reserve for next year, but our dates were already taken.

A Sunny Delightful Place to Escape the Seattle Rai

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and spacious. The master bedroom was the largest bedroom I've ever slept in. My husband and I stayed there with another couple friend. There was more than enough space for all of us and it was close enough to town to go exploring. There were amazing hikes within a couple minutes drive. The hot tub was very relaxing. The owner was extremely kind and responsive. I highly recommend this property!
