About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths & 2 Half Bath (Sleeps 8)

Bienvenidos to Pasos del Cielo! - a unique opportunity to experience hacienda living with breathtaking 360 degree views and resort style amenities in a true southwestern retreat. Situated on five acres with over 5,400 sq feet of living area, the hacienda provides spaciousness and privacy - yet is just minutes away from the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain, world-renowned Miraval Spa,

golf and shopping. The hacienda is the perfect choice for a family get together, romantic get away, golfing holiday or a relaxing spa retreat.

Stunning panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and desert make unforgettable sunsets and star-studded evening skies. Beautifully appointed with quality furnishings and luxury amenities, the home features 4 bedrooms each with an en suite bathroom, a huge chef's kitchen for entertaining, large great room, formal dining room, separate library, music gallery with piano, and office.

And whether you plan to play chef or have us hire one for you, you'll find the kitchen a pleasure. Fully stocked with every convenience and an island seating bar, it features a large prep area with two sinks, an indoor grill, six-burner gas stove, double ovens, and wine cabinet all surrounded by hand crafted custom mesquite cabinetry.

Outside, the main 3000 sf patio area is like having your own resort with a 50' swimming pool (see heating note below), built-in gas and charcoal barbecues with entertainment bar and outdoor sound system -- plus pool house with sauna, wet bar and outdoor shower. Guests enjoy evenings for s'mores and conversation around the fire pit, the sounds of the Spanish fountain, and the native flower gardens, orange, grapefruit and pomegranate trees. Two additional patios provide guests with quiet space for watching the birds and butterflies or just taking in the sun.

Upstairs, the 600+sf master suite is a private oasis with a balcony affording majestic views, a charming loft with wood burning fireplace and wet bar for toasting the sunset. The master bath also has its own balcony, walk in shower and jacuzzi.

Best of all, Pasos del Cielo offers the opportunity to relax and experience the beauty of the desert on your own five acres, hike and bike for miles outside your door, and play golf, shop and dine just minutes away. As one guest said recently in his review, "There aren't many guarantees in life, but this is one of them, I promise you." I'm happy to assist with any special arrangements you might need and look forward to the opportunity of having you!


- Minimum age of the contracting guest - 30 years. Because of the layout of the home and property, I regret that I can only accept children 10 years or older.

- Pool heating: If you would like to use the pool heating system, there is a charge of $100/day due to the size of the pool and the cost of propane. Please contact me for any questions: 520.437.9749

About Jan

I've been very lucky to live in some wonderful cities from Hollywood to NY, Washington, DC, San Francisco, and Chicago and have enjoyed them all, but always had a vision of one day having a hacienda in the Southwest. All those places were important influences in my life and in one way or another contributed to coming to Tucson and finding my dream home and the ambiance that it offers. I've been delighted to have wonderful, fascinating people find their way here and it's a joy to share this magical desert and home with you.

Amazing Trip to Tucson

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Trip to Tucson. Jan greeted us with a Fresh Fruit Basket, Cookies, and a Bottle of Wine. She provided us with a tour of the home making sure we knew where everything was that we would need for a great vacation. Our group of three couples who have been traveling together for years had a super time hanging out at the pool, cooking breakfast in the awesome kitchen, and grilling outside on the patio watching the sunset in the evening. Jan provided us with several tour ideas which were all spot on for great day tours. We even caught a couple March Madness games on the big screen. We highly recommend spending a week by the pool enjoying the fabulous sunrises and sunsets.

Significant fun and relaxation in Saguaro Country!!

  • 5 of 5

Next time you want to be treated to a marvelous time in a superb property, visit Jan and Craig's fantastic hacienda in Marana, just north of Phoenix! From the homemade chocolate chip cookies to the super-comfortable beds, it was a delight. We had our annual group of retired U.S. Navy Captains (and one Commander) with wives and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Jan's recommendations for things to see and places to eat were right on! If you want to get away from your hustle and bustle and have some serious laid-back time, don't miss it! Pool, sauna and golf nearby.....5*****

If you don't stay here, you're missing the best part of Tucson !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Totally a fantastic place to unwind. Great large home with room for everyone to find there own spot! Jan the owner is a great host. She popped in only once to see if everything was good and if we needed anything else. Nothing was needed because everything is there. The trip to Tucson Gem and Mineral show was only a short 25 minute ride and it was great to come back and unwind with no close neighbors or noises. The 5 acre estate is great to roam around and relax. Trails nearby allow for a great jog early in the mornings. An added perk was the orange tree !!! Nothing beats a fresh Mimosa every morning !!!!!! Next years trip will most definitely include the stay there !! Thank you Jan !!!!

Slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Jan met us at the door with a lovely smile, freshly baked chocolate cookies, fruit and a bottle of wine!

My sister and I along with our spouses and nephew spent five glorious and relaxing days in this beautiful home! Jan's attention to the tiniest of details was evident throughout the home. The beds were very comfortable, the towels and linen, luxurious. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked with A - Z spices.

CONVIENTLY located near shopping and freeway, yet you feel removed from the hustle and bustle.

Lush orange and grapefruit trees provided freshly squeezed juice every morning. Beautifully landscaped and a haven for birds.

There is a beautiful oversized pool which we hope to use on our next visit.

Our evenings were spent in front of fireplace with my nephew playing the piano, conversation and connecting with each other.

The views of the mountains and the peaceful tranquil setting made it very difficult to leave.

Jan was a text away and very responsive.

A shout out to Jan as the Hostest with the Mostest!

Thanks Jan!

Grace, Patti, Dick, Keith and Sean

PS. Dog friendly.

Lovely Arizona desert getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, meticulously kept home with lots of room to spread out, a great outdoor patio and pool area and an amazingly well-equipped kitchen. The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain is just 10 minutes away, as is trail access for fantastic hiking. Jan is a wonderful host.
