The moment you arrive, you’ll immediately become enchanted by this breathtaking property, which greets you with a beautiful courtyard with flowering shrubs and a stone fountain that attracts the local songbirds.

Magnificent views of the Tortolita Mountains can be admired from the entire back of the house, while the front of the home offers excellent views of the towering Catalina Mountains.
Inside Villa Montagne, you’ll find this 3,800-square foot residence to be impeccably decorated throughout with tasteful furnishings, travertine flooring, and numerous windows that let in plenty of sunshine. You’ll love preparing your favorite meals in the expansive kitchen, fully equipped with a gourmet Bertazzoni range and ovens, together with high-end small appliances and cookware. You may choose to enjoy your family dinners around the large kitchen table or at the bar area, situated between the kitchen and family room. On more formal occasions, gather in the gorgeous dining room area with seating for 8. If you prefer dining al fresco, 8 people can sit around the table on the covered patio and 4 people can sit at the outdoor bar, which includes a large built-in gas grill.
Boasting 12-foot ceilings, a stone fireplace, plenty of comfortable seating, and a 60-inch flat screen TV with Bose sound system, the spacious family room will serve as the ideal place to spend your downtime. In addition, the house comes equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple TV, wireless internet access and a wireless printer, as well as Netflix and DirecTV (with DVR) subscriptions to satisfy all your entertainment needs.
If you’d prefer to unwind in the fresh air, step outside to the back and enjoy the best of outdoor living. You’ll find a deep covered patio with ample space for you and your companions to spread out and relax on the sofa, club chairs, and ottomans, perfectly arranged to admire the spectacular scenery. The 2-person hammock can be wheeled onto the covered patio if you prefer shade or out onto the deck if you if you want to see the sun or the spectacular nighttime sky. Across the travertine deck, you will find the pool and 6-person spa. On cooler nights, you may enjoy gathering around the gas-fed fire pit, with seating for 8. The yard also includes a, regulation bocce court and a 3-hole putting green. You will find bocce balls, golf balls, putters, pool floats and beach towels for your use in the deck box.
Once the evening has come to a close, retreat to one of the inviting bedrooms to rest up for another wonderful day. The master bedroom serves as a luxurious escape, featuring a separate sitting area, fireplace, 50-inch flat screen TV, Blu-ray player, DirecTV, Netflix, and surround sound. An ensuite bathroom completes the master bedroom and comes with his and her counters, a walk-in shower with river stone flooring, deep soaking tub, and double doors that open to the huge master closet. The master bedroom also has its own door out to the back yard for a late night dip in the pool or hot tub.
The house is well-suited for 2 couples, with a second large bedroom, offering a California king-sized bed. In addition, all of the beds have new, top-of-the-line Sealy mattresses and high-end linens. This house leaves absolutely nothing to be desired!
When you’re not enjoying the house and its amazing amenities, you certainly won’t have to venture far to experience everything Tucson has to offer! The home’s desert surroundings and close proximity to state parks offers prime bird and wildlife watching opportunities. You’ll love taking leisurely walks around the 4-acre property or exploring the pristine hiking trails throughout Catalina State Park, located right down the road.

This beautiful house is only a few years old and has been well maintained. It is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It's a large house with plenty of room to spread out and has a large garage with an automatic door opener. The laundry room is very functional and has enough space to get your laundry done and folded. It has a very functional kitchen. We like to cook, and the gourmet gas stove welcomed us to that. It had a spacious and well stocked pantry, a nice block of knives, 2 sinks, and was open to the dining and family area with a large TV above a beautiful stone fireplace. The outdoor area had lots of seating and a large easy to use gas grill. The pool and hot tub was easy to heat and we enjoyed the use of it daily. The landscaping was so pretty, and there are rosemary bushes out there along with the flowers and cactus. The views of the mountains and sunsets were so relaxing in the evening. It's a bit far to the North of the city, but worth the peace and solitude at the end of a day sightseeing and galavanting to nearby areas. There is a book that explains how to use all the appliances, pool heater, outdoor speakers, TVs, etc. The owner did a good job with that, but we were told if anything needed further explanation, that we were welcomed to call. We had no issues, everything ran well, the pool man came and did his thing, and the gardener came and did his thing too. We came out West with friends for 3 weeks starting in Utah and rented a total of 3 Home Away homes during that time with this one being our last one and our favorite. We had a wonderful stay. Thanks, Shirlene.
Way beyond expectations!! Everything we needed was at the house. Everything we needed was close by. We had no plans to leave the house, didn't ever need to. A couple grocery runs that's it. The pool is great, house clean and comfortable. Plenty of activities at the house or away that were close by. Hiking was extremely close. There were no neighbors to worry about. We can't wait to return. We were only in the house to cook, sleep, and make drinks. Outside living. Owners were very informative and helpful! I Highly Recommend this house for a getaway. Hopefully it's available for the next time. Thank you so much for the use of your home.
Well designed house
Clean and with nice quality amenities
You will not be disappointed
We had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at Villa Montagne in June, and didn't leave except to go to the grocery store for more food and drink! Ok, one girlfriend went to Sabino Canyon for a hike... but, we cancelled our dinner reservations at night and opted to grill and enjoy their patio. The outside living area is great! The pool and jacuzzi are perfect. We watched the sunset, had dinner and played Bocce ball every night. Their outside sound system is great as well!
The beds are very comfortable, the sheets and towels are soft and smell good. Jeff and Shirlene (the owners) are very kind and very easy to work with. I would love to come back to their beautiful home again and would highly recommend to others!
We experienced great family joy together in this home! Very clean, amazing views, beautiful home with great amenities. Everything we needed at our fingertips. Already talking about spending our next family vacation together at this home!
Our hiking group of 5 women from various states rented the villa for 4 nights...It was fabulous!!!! Everything worked perfectly and Shirlene wax a delight to work with! You will not be disappointed!!
