Privacy and good hiking north of Tucson

  • 4 of 5

We shared The Pool House with friends; it is perfect for two couples or families giving each some privacy in separate accommodations. Oracle is at an altitude of 5500 feet and is colder than Tucson as well as about 30 miles north of it. Shopping for food has to be done in Catalina, Oro Valley or further south; there is virtually no shopping in Oracle. However, the hiking in Oracle is very good: The Arizona Trail goes right through and the Oracle State Park offers good hikes.

The Pool House has recently been sold and as a consequence there were no hiking maps, local guides, books or games etc, around. It took us a while to figure out how to use the i-pad to turn on the spa. In fact, I am not sure that the pad is not a placebo and the spa might have come on at some pre-scheduled time had I not used it. There is no radio in the house and the volume control on the computer (thoughtfully left for guests) did not work so we could not use it for internet audio.

Overall, we enjoyed staying at The Pool House where we could enjoy lots of sunshine in March and good hiking in the area.

Beautiful house in Oracle!

  • 5 of 5

The house decor is charming and inviting - everything we needed including a well outfitted kitchen. We enjoyed the pool, outside deck with grille and fire pit, and the beautiful yard which provided a great place to drink coffee while watching the sun rise. It was a little further from Tucson than I anticipated, but then again I’m from Texas and accustomed to 75mph speed limits... not 50mph 😊?. We loved hiking the Oracle Ridge trail which starts right down the road on Cody Loop. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Pool House.

Lovely secluded home with mountain view and pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property which is exactly as the pictures show. It is well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, linens, games and direct TV. We especially enjoyed the privacy, views and pool. The local restaurants and pubs were a treat. Everyone is so friendly. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest properties we have every stayed at. Secluded, yet close enough to the area attractions. Helen and her caretaker were warm and very responsive. The property would be perfect for families or people liking some privacy due to the two buildings (connected by the pool area). Beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. Beautiful views wth two patio areas to watch the sunrise from. The pool and spa were welcome relaxation after spending the day hiking. If you go, dining at the Patio Cafe is a must (breakfast and lunch only). Their ‘take and bake’ pizzas were excellent and convenient dinners a few times! You won’t be disappointed with this property !!
