3+ Acre Sonoran Oasis - Complete with SW Custom Home w/Resort-like Amenities

Welcome to Casa Campana, consistently among Southern Arizona's highest rated vacation rental properties.

AREA

This stunning 3,000 sq ft custom southwest traditional home (with an additional 1,000+ sq feet of covered patios) is situated on 3.3 private acres in the Tortolita Mountains foothills of the northern Tucson area, adjacent to the Dove Mountain resort community.

The majestic Sonoran Desert is breathtaking and perfect for biking, hiking or just relaxing and taking in the surrounding beauty. Enjoy the private setting with incredible views while maintaining a close proximity to shopping, great restaurants and some of the best golf Tucson has to offer.

COURTYARD

Open the gate to the serenity of the front courtyard, perfect for enjoying your morning tea, curling up with a book, or sharing intimate dinners. The soothing fountain, whimsical hummingbirds, comfortable furnishings, and magical evening lighting offer unique solitude and a calm hideaway.

INTERIOR SPACES

Once inside the villa, you will be enthralled by the spacious great room with polished concrete floors, high beamed ceilings and impressive custom woodwork throughout. With its championship billiard table, 60-inch flat screen, Bose surround sound and the latest media choices, this great room offers countless entertainment options.

Discerning cooks will feel inspired in the fully equipped kitchen, outfitted on par with a primary residence complete with stocked spice cabinet, and a full compliment of gadgetry, small appliances and even china place settings. No detail has been spared.

The striking king master suite is beautifully appointed and includes a small office work space, views of the Catalina Mountains and direct access to the covered patio, hot tub and swimming pool. The master bath provides a large walk-in shower with dual heads and separate soaking tub perfect for indoor relaxation.

The master suite and three equally charming guest rooms all include flat screen TVs with DishTV/Hopper DVR access and Blu-ray DVD players.

Bed arrangement includes: Master Bedroom - King, 'Tahoe Bedroom' - King, 'Southwest Bedroom' - Queen, and 'Route 66 Bedroom' - Two Full beds.

OUTDOOR SPACES

While the home's interior is very comfortably furnished and equipped, Arizona life is all about the outdoors. Enjoy the exquisite weather year-round from the expansive outdoor living spaces including fully furnished covered patios, spa and heated swimming pool with natural boulder water feature just steps away.

Lose yourself in the surrounding beauty, sunning in the lagoon or napping on the covered pool-side Bali Bed by day; or gazing at the city lights while gathered around the gas fire feature by night. This Sonoran outdoor oasis is sure to captivate with its surrounding desert wildlife and beauty.

Transportation Notes: the route to Casa Campana includes a very short (1/8th mile) segment of flat, compacted gravel road between our lane and the city street. This is not unusual for the area. If arriving by recreational vehicle, an RV space with electric hook-up is provided.

It is our sincere pleasure to welcome you to Casa Campana.

About Mark & Susan

We purchased this property after falling in love with Southern Arizona, its desert beauty, and the wonderful year-round weather. Being long-time Seattle area residents, it has been a welcome respite from the damp northwest winters. The weather here cannot be beat!

We enjoy all that Arizona has to offer - abundant golf, tennis, hiking, wildlife, cuisine, and most of all, Sunshine!!

We enjoy visiting as often as possible, for both needed R&R as a couple, as well as with extended family to reconnect. It is our hope that our guests come to love the property, amenities, and ambiance as much as we do.

Mark & Susan purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark & Susan chose Arizona

This property was chosen due to its uniqueness, privacy, and tranquil setting in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Unlike many vacation rental homes situated in dense neighborhoods, our guests enjoy significant privacy in a quiet peaceful suburban ranch environment (3+ acre and larger properties).

After an extensive on-line and in-person search, this home (later named Casa Campana – or ‘Bell House’) was the clear choice for these and many other factors that hopefully guests will experience and come to love for themselves.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of this property include the pristine desert setting, abundant privacy and open space, many custom details inside and out, and the overall peacefulness it exudes.

Although the existing custom home provided a good starting point, we spent over a year developing the overall property into a premier vacation destination drawing on our experiences traveling to small boutique resorts in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Those reference points contributed to adding just the right furnishings, amusements, relaxation options, and luxury amenities to make Casa Campana an exceptional experience. This applies equally for those vacationing as families, as we do with our own young adult children, or as couples seeking rest and tranquility.

Many guests have commented that their time at Casa Campana was like a retreat at their own personal, private resort. We couldn't agree more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our three weeks at Casa de Campana. The pool and spa are lovely - no need to leave the villa. The welcome package was delightful and a very nice touch - made us feel very welcome. Thank you.

Unbelievably relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible. The owners easy to work with. They have thought of everything you could possibly need and is put together perfectly. The kitchen is amazing. The rooms perfect. If you need it. They have it. I am always skeptical about renting a house but I wish these people had more homes all over the place cause we would go.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased our home worked so well for you family. Thank you for your review. The Tucson area has so much to offer, but after settling in, we always have a hard time leaving the property as well. When we do, it's always nice to come back to our own private little oasis.

Awesome home!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Campana is your Tucson dream vacation home. The home is perfect for large families or groups. When we walked into the home it far exceeded any expectations we had. The inside of the house was perfect. The kitchen has everything you need and was right next to the TV room with a great sectional couch that so comfortable. the pool table is an added bonus! The pool and patio area was great to enjoy the warm Arizona weather. We loved gathering around the fire pit at night. I would highly recommend this home for anyone!! We will be back!

Fantastic, well-appointed home in outstanding location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 10 days at this wonderful home in September. The property is even better than the online pictures portray. On arrival, we were greeted by a welcome bag packed with Arizona goodies! The inside is lovely with a fantastic great room with large TV, beautiful kitchen with all appliances and there is even a pool table! Mark and Susan were very helpful both prior to our travels and during our stay - they were happy to answer any questions regarding the property and local recommendations. The home was clean, well-maintained and the outside areas were wonderful to pass the day, watching and listening to wildlife...hummingbirds were a particular favourite! The pool is fantastic and many hours were spent swimming and relaxing in our beautiful, private surroundings. The stars were incredible to see at night-time! The house is located in a desert setting but you are also close to amenities including the Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain which is a lovely place for an evening drink! We would highly recommend this home - we created some fantastic memories and were lucky to be able to catch up with our American side of the family who we invited over one evening to share our experience at this villa. Big thanks to Mark and Susan - everything was thought of and we can't wait to return to Arizona!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The Ritz Carlton is a lovely setting for drinks and dinner, and their sunset flute ceremony is a must, especially when we have guests of our own. We love our location too, for many of the same reasons that you mentioned. We have so much privacy and space in the beautiful Sonoran desert, but we are very close to many conveniences. We look forward to your next visit to Casa Campana.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

"Casa Campana, Tucson, proved to be a wonderful place to spend our vacation. It was perfectly situated for a relaxing and peaceful holiday with everything you could want at hand. Early mornings were our favourite as we sat drinking our coffee watching the sun rise. We will always have special memories of our time spent here with our family, Every need was catered for and every part of the day was perfect, there were so many places to sit and relax. We enjoyed visiting the interesting Titan Missile Centre, the fun at Tombstone and our dinners at the Carlton Ritz Hotel Restaurant at Dove Mountain. The property was exceptionally clean and well maintained and a pleasure to take care of. Meeting Susan and Mark, the owners, was especially good and they could not have been more kind and helpful. Anyone spending their vacation at Casa Campana would be very fortunate and we are delighted to recommend this property." Wales, UK.

Case Campana is located in the Tortolita Mountains foothills at the northern part of the greater Tucson area and adjacent to the Dove Mountain resort community including the Dove Mountain, Gallery and Heritage golf clubs and Ritz Carlton resort.

Only a short drive away are major Tucson area attractions including Mount Lemmon, Biosphere2, The Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, University of Arizona, and many great area golf clubs. Other nearby popular pursuits include hot air ballooning, off-road excursions, and mountain and desert hiking. Dove Mountain, the former site of the Accenture Match Play World Golf Tournament is only minutes away.

Close enough for day trips from Casa Campana, historic Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, Tubac arts community, Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory, and the Arizona Wine Country are all popular visitor destinations.

Situated on a private lane of 3+ acre properties, Casa Campana itself affords a great Sonoran Desert experience including an abundance of desert plants/trees, cactus, birds (including mourning doves, night hawks, hummingbirds, ...) and desert animals such as javelinas, coyotes, and deer. The property's natural setting and privacy will be appreciated by all, but convenience is not sacrificed with restaurants, shopping and other services less than 5 minutes away.
