This property is unique offering you privacy and solace yet quick access to I10 - minutes to downtown and U of A - approx. 20 minutes to Tucson airport and approx. 1.5 hours to Phoenix Sky Harbor This 10 acre property is located in the uplands of the Sonoran Desert. It is surrounded with majestic saguaros, ironwood trees and cactus abound. The property is in a pocket of natural desert yet just 5 minutes to I10 (Twin Peaks interchange). The guesthouse sits on its own private area and can barely see the main house. You may watch Harris and Redtail Hawks flying overhead, catch a glimpse of a great western owl or a bobcat and see the roadrunner and coyotes scampering the grounds. The hummingbirds winter here as well and if you supply the nectar in the feeders they will grace your presence. The roads are dirt however we are only approx. 1/4 mile to the nearest paved road. The area has horse ranches and you are likely to see the equestrians and cowboys strolling the roads along with a mule drawn cart on occasion. It is excellent for hiking and mountain biking. There are numerous golf courses nearby from the Ritz Carlton at Dove Mtn (along with the Gallery and Heritage Highlands) - to the local county course at Arthur Pack. We are minutes to the U of A, downtown (Trolley) and less than 1.5 hrs to Sky Harbor airport in Phoenix. The Tucson airport is approx. 20 minutes away. Come relax and enjoy the dry warmth of the desert. Summers offer spectacular lightning events and wonderful sunsets. The heat is dry and the temps can drop 25 degrees in 15 minutes after a shower - which rarely lasts over 20 minutes. Of course our winters are the 'high' season and what better place to escape the cold, damp weather. Late January - February will bring us the Tucson Gem Show (world's largest) as well as several golf tournaments Also in February you can enjoy the Tucson Rodeo Parade- the world's largest non motorized parade before the rodeo. El Tour de Tucson - Bicycle race in November is a world class event. My husband and I live on the property and have been in Tucson for almost 40 years and enjoying the southwest deserts. We are avid hikers and when not in Tucson you will find us escaping to the cool rivers of the western states or perhaps to the beaches of Mexico. We enjoy cooking, sharing recipes, tales of travels over a glass of wine. We can be quietly friendly or here to help you enjoy and plan your stay in the Tucson Desert. Tucson is a great place to enjoy the out of doors and the multicultural heritage of the area.

A Perfect Desert Experience
I had a fabulous time exploring the natural desert setting at the guesthouse, situated on 10 acres. It was far enough off the beaten path that I could sit and watch the birds and animals, but close enough to town to enjoy the city amenities, too. When I wasn't marveling at a 300-year-old saguaro cactus while enjoying the perfume of the gardenia by the patio, I was watching roadrunners and jackrabbits race through the yard. The guesthouse is so comfortable and wonderfully appointed, and the owners so gracious and hospitable, I really didn't want to leave. The gated access off a dirt road might not suit everyone, but for me, this was the perfect desert experience.
