As usual, our stay was a favorite home away from home. We love the ambience, the pool, (I love the kitchen), the location is perfect for us to enjoy all our Wisconsin friends who own close by....the golf courses are challenging AND beautiful. "The Pines, The Preserves, the View, Pusch Ridge, and Vistoso golf course are incredible with mountains visable all around them. I am sure my husband will join Vistoso some day when we buy out here. Tucscon/Oro Valley is easy to navigate -we prefer not to drive around Phoenix but find Tucson/Oro Valley just fine. Our grandchildren loved the pool. We did some sightseeing with gchldren, but it takes a while to get somewhere and children are not really keen on sitting in a car, so back to the pool we went, and all is well again. Happy Days and Hot Dogs on the "great grill" provided by the owner. Granchildren already want to come back next year when we are there. The restaurants feature various ethics menus and are yummy and we love happy hour prices and appetizers. I suggest "The Guadaljara on Prince for the best Mexican" and the Keg at Oracle Market, great steaks The Farmer's Market on Saturdays in Oro Valley is fabulous and entertaining. Get Grammy's canning goods to take home to loved ones. The Post Office and Library close by...library card easy to obtain...the art fairs are all over the area and we love them. Sunset City Vistoso has a large very fun yard sale every March...75 vendors and lots of great deals. The Two Sisters have super estate sales and a Consignment Store on Grant and Swan and when at the estate sales you get to tour some really impressive homes in the Tucson area. Oracle Market, off Tangerine, close by for shopping and groceries and movies and we found a nice Mexican Grill there for breakfast and a Chinese restaurant for appetizers and drinks after a movie at the Oro Valley theatre next door. Tubac is close and has fabulous shopping - while there, try the "Old Presidio" for Navahjo reservation jewelry. Tubac is only an hour away and so charming....lots of shops for the ladies. The "owner" of this rental is most accomodating - just text him with any questions and he will respond immediately. He owner employs wonderful pool cleaners and landscappers to take care of yard/pool issues, whom are most polite and nice to work with it you encounter them during your stay. I would most definitely recommend this home to rent, but, of coursen, not during the months we rent it.....:>)

The photos do not do the property justice! It was a lovely home, quiet, very clean and we wanted for nothing. The kitchen is well stocked and the cold beer/pop in the frig hit the spot after a ten hour drive! We have shared with friends and they want to plan their family get-away at this property. We definately will return and for longer than two weeks!

Staying at Vince's place made our stay in Tucson sooooooo comfortable. The house is very roomy and well stocked with every need taken care of as though we were at home, not to mention clean. If for some reason you wanted to just hang around rather than go experience everything Tucson has to offer you would not be bored - swimming pool, ping pong, basket ball, pool table, darts, board games, big screen TV, did I leave anything out? The kitchen is ready to cook including pots, pans, spices, olive oil, etc., etc. The property manager, Lori is very handy and very helpful too!

This home is absolutely beautiful! The description of the house was good but it was soooo much more! Everything we could need was in the home. It was very inviting, well stocked, and was so spacious. The outdoor space was also wonderful with a pool, basketball court, picnic table, other tables and chairs, and grills. Our only regret is that we had to leave!!!!! Lori, the neighbor, was also there if we ever needed her but we didn't. Everything was in good working order. Vince, the owner, was always prompt to answer any emails I sent. It was truly a pleasure doing business with Vince and we love, love, loved the home!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed this property 10 nights from 10/29/10 as a base of golf tour. We played golf at several good courses including Starr Pass, Tucson National, Ventana Canyon, Arizona National, Pines Quary, Ritz Dove Mountain and Vistoso. This house is ideally located to visit them and so convinient for good restaurants and shopping center. Amenities are wonderful. We enjoyed billiard, ping pong, basket ball and dirt. I regret not to have a time for swimming with this nice pool. We had more than one hundred cute vistors on Halloween night. We thanked for this house's close location to Safeway on the night. This house is located in very good neighbor. Anyway this was a wonderful stay!

Family Dream Vacation

Date of Stay: 10/15/10 Review Submitted: 10/19/10
Vince - Thank you so much for the wonderful family vacation at your home. We had such a great time. The views out of the front door are amazing. We saw one of the most beautiful sunsets one night. The trails across the street were great to walk the little ones around. And the house - we couldn't have been more pleased. The place was stocked with everything we needed (towels, cleaning supplies, kitchen utensils...everything!) And the backyard was such a fun place to hang out with family and friends. Basketball, ping pong, swimming, large dining area, gas grill and outdoor speakers for music or to hear the football game -we enjoyed it all! Sheesh, it's amazing! The pool cover was such a bonus too! With toddlers around we didn't have to worry about them wandering in the wrong place while we weren't using the pool. Thanks again for a great time and thanks to Lori for all she did as well! Looking forward to coming again next year!

My extended family and I were in AZ for a wedding and we decided to make a vacation of it. After spending the week at Vince's place I can honestly say that we couldn't have asked for anything better. There is plenty to do here that no one should get bored. We swam, played pool, darts, ping pong, basketball and cards. Would highly recommend staying here for anyone looking for a great house in the Tucson area. House was just as described, very clean and had all the amenities you could want. Will definitely be back next time we are in the area.
Fabulous house for our family reunion
Guest: Jane and John(Traverse City, Michigan)
Date of Stay: 10/02/10 Review Submitted: 10/13/10
This wonderful, immaculate home far exceeded our expectations! Upon our arrival, we were greeted with fresh flowers, chocolates and wine. We were five adults and five children ages six and under in Tucson for a family reunion. The house is very spacious with large common areas and soaring ceilings, and we had plenty of room for everyone. Vince graciously provided two baby cribs for us. We enjoyed all the amenities..the pool table, dart board, ping pong table, basketball court and lovely, large heated pool. The pool cover, which worked beautifully with the turn of a key, was especially important to us with all of the children. There was ample outdoor table seating on the full length covered lanai, and when our entire family gathered, we easily accommodated everyone. Vince has anticipated every need, from pool toys and floats to plenty of large, fluffy beach towels, to extra bathroom toiletries, to a kitchen fully stocked with basic food items and paper products. I would say that you only need to bring your toothbrush, but that's been provided as well! If we have need of a large home in Tucson again, we will definitely stay here; it was a wonderful relaxing vacation for our family.

We rented the home for a fun getaway and were not disappointed in the least. The home is large & spacious. It was also very clean and was extremely well-stocked with everything a traveler would need. The backyard was lovely and private. There are many walking trails & a park with a tot lot & playground equipment just a few blocks away. I can highly recommend this property and will definitely be back very soon--I have already made the reservations!

We were just 1/2 mile from her Sister's home but we spent every day at this house. It has absolutely EVERYTHING you could ever want, all the amentities that five star hotels offer. Spotlessly clean, well furnished and a neighbor just a phone call away ready to help in anyway she can. Our trip was PERFECT and Vince I could never Thank You enough for offering your home at such a reasonable price!! I have told several people about it and we will definately be back!!

Beautful house, is bigger than you would expect from the photo's. Well-maintained, we liked the pool, the pool-table, the table-tennis and the basketball-court. Neighbours are really close by, but hardly at home, so no lack of privacy.
