Kathy Ryan fivetwozerofoureighteightsevenninetwosix

This desert beauty is nestled in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains on a quiet cul-de-sac. The home is beautifully appointed and offers elegance and comfort to make for a very memorable experience. Stunning mountain views, gorgeous star filled skies and desert serenity make this home a true delight.

The property is managed by me ... the owner ... and not a management company. So if you're looking for that personal touch .... this is it! I live only minutes away, so if you have any issues, I will take care of them immediately. I will personally greet you upon your arrival and help you become familiar with the home. I want to make sure your vacation experience is perfect.

The home is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city but only minutes away from Saguaro National Park, hiking, biking, horseback riding, golf and an outdoor farmers market. Easy access to I-10 allows for convenience to the airport, downtown, Davis Monthan AFB, U of A, Museums, the Convention Center and so much more. Your days will be delightful with the many activities nearby. Shopping, grocery stores, restaurants and medical facilities are all nearby.

The property features a serene backyard with a large patio and sweeping views of the mountains and desert arroyos. Sip your morning coffee or evening cocktail while you watch for wild-life sightings of hawks, hummingbirds, roadrunners, coyotes and more. After a busy day of sightseeing, throw a couple of steaks on the grill and enjoy an evening of star gazing.

We have made every effort to accommodate your needs to ensure your enjoyment and convenience. The home is immaculate and offers premium bedding and linens, hair dryers, flat screen HD TVs, DVD blue ray player and WI-FI. The kitchen is a cook's paradise equipped with spices, bake ware and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal or a light snack. Laundry facilities include a washer, dryer, iron/board and laundry supplies. For the fitness enthusiast, we offer weights and mountain bikes for your outdoor adventure. We have an assortment of novels for your reading pleasure, darts and various family games to help pass the time.

Come and experience Tucson at its best ..... peace and privacy with breathtaking views and personal service you will not get elsewhere!

About Kathy Ryan

I'm originally from Chicago but grew tired of the harsh winters and brutal summers. So, in 1993, I said adios to Chicago and began my quest to start a new life out West. I visited Tucson and it was love at first sight. The natural beauty is magnificent and the weather is glorious. The people of Tucson are very friendly, helpful and pleasant. There are so many things to enjoy in Tucson ..... there is something for everyone!

Kathy Ryan purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

I am a licensed real estate broker in the state of Arizona so I am familiar with the many areas of Tucson. I especially love this area of town because it is not overpopulated and there are no traffic jams to deal with. The area is surrounded by natural beauty and enhanced by wide open spaces and gorgeous scenery. The area is home to many species of wild-life and other eye-candy like rainbows that stretch across the sky, sweeping mountain views, desert flora, clean, fresh air and star-studded skies at night. The area certainly has a rural feeling to it, but is conveniently located to all sorts of amenities and necessities.

I live only minutes away from the rental home, so my guests have the extra peace of mind that any unexpected issues will be resolved immediately. My goal is to provide you with a memorable vacation experience that leaves you wanting to return again and again and again!

It's a lovely house with a beautiful view of the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My first VRBO experience and it couldn't have been any better. The house was immaculate and well equipped with nice linens and bedding. Very accessible to Saguaro NP East, in fact just a couple of miles down the main road into this neighborhood are trails into the park, beautiful at sunset! Although a distance from central Tucson, it is easy to get to via Route 10. Fun in February, though cool at times, was very fun in Tucson as the Gem and Mineral show is there in the beginning and the Rodeo at the end of the month. Kathy was so helpful, quickly responded to questions and was very hospitable. Mountain views out the kitchen window were so beautiful at different times of the day. I hope to return in the next couple of years!

Clean and spacious, and EASY!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely property. We were looking for a warm weather getaway at the last minute. ..a place near the mountains, with pretty views, and space for two families. This house was perfect! Kathy was great to work with and communication was quick and clear. The house is fully stocked, beds were comfortable, nice back yard. Highly recommended ;)

Clean, well maintained home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything as described in listing and more. Well decorated with attention to detail. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen for cooking or baking if that is your desire. Plenty of linens and towels. The house is pet friendly with a fenced yard. Our dogs loved it! There are two binders. One with all the information regarding the house, all appliances, dish t.v., electronics, utilities ,anything you can imagine concerning the house. The second one was filled with information regarding tourist attractions in and around Tucson. This made our planning very easy and we saw and did so much more because of this. Kathy is a gracious host. Very easy to deal with. Was at the house when we arrived to show us around and answer any questions we had. If you encounter any problems during your stay she is available to help. Thank you for making our first trip to Tucson so enjoyable!
