Overview

About the property

Charming casita is spacious 800 sq ft on a very private, quiet 1.4 acres.

******* Certified WILDLIFE HABITAT *******

The Retreat on Cloud Nine just received certification from the National Wildlife Federation and Arizona Wildlife Federation as a Wildlife Habitat!

The Casita at the Resort on Cloud Nine has all of the same beautiful natural resource amenities of the nearby exclusive Miraval Resort without the resort pricing! Within Sutherland Heights, it sits high on a bluff, off a private road with easy access to unlimited hiking, biking and horseback trails. Enjoy unsurpassed dramatic mountain views during the day and at night, view spectacular Milky Way and constellation formations from your own private observation deck, floating in the pool or gathered around a camp fire.

This charming casita sleeps 2 and is comfortably furnished with a spacious living room, dining area, full kitchen, bedroom with a queen bed and sitting area plus an oversized bathroom and walk-in closet space. Also includes a private observation deck, cozy evening seating around a fire pit and use of the pool and laundry facilities. Wi-Fi /Internet access plus TV satellite with premium channels is also provided at no additional cost.

If a peaceful, private environment with a plethora of wild life surprises is what you are looking for this is the place for you! Bunnies and quail can be seen from every window along with visits from cardinals, hawks, roadrunners, lizards and owls (a great horned owl rules the area at night). And you haven’t even left the back yard!

There is unlimited hiking in the area with access to the Coronado State forest land only a quarter of a mile away. The Fifty Year Trail, one of the area’s premier mountain biking paths is right down the road.

Another big plus, although you are in an amazing private environment, civilization is close by. You are within 5 minutes to a grocery store, 20 minutes to a shopping cinema complex with not only good Mexican cuisine but some of the best Indian, Chinese and steakhouse eateries in the Tucson / Oro Valley area. Travel another 15 minutes and you will find yourself in the upscale foothills area with La Encantada shopping and more restaurants. Or head in the other direction to experience the newly renovated Tucson downtown area providing a thriving music and night time scene complete with a new streetcar line.

Enjoy the resort atmosphere and a little slice of heaven when you stay at the Casita on Cloud Nine. We are looking forward to your visit!

Ideal property to get away from the congestion of Tucson ! Beautiful/open views of mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time trip to the Tucson area of Arizona. Wanted to experience all that Tucson had to offer....but also get away from it all - especially since we come from a busy life style in Chicago. This Casita and it's location were about a perfect as could be. Enjoyed the lovely views and being able to take desert walks right from the property. One night we had friends over and had a camp fire in the yard as the sun went down.The only negative for some people might be that driving to and from the Casita at night is not easy because the property is located up in the foothills on a windy/hilly gravel based road. However, for us , the remoteness was a positive! Would definitely stay here again on a future visit.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Took my bride here for our 20-year anniversary and could not be more happy. Quiet, secluded and able to just enjoy being together. Inside the casita looks like a model home and has everything a couple could need for a weekend stay.

Beyond compare

  • 5 of 5

Property is quiet, private, secluded, has outstanding views, and borders an extensive trail network near and into the Catalina Mountains. Carol could not have been more accommodating. Both the casita, and the outside grounds, were obviously appointed by a competent professional designer. All of the many decorative pieces were perfect. The affect of the property in general, together with the active rabbits, quail, and numerous other birds, is to make a guest feel in paradise.
