Oro Valley Condo
April 9, 2013
My husband and I rented this condo for two months this winter. The location was excellent and we loved Oro Valley. It is a beautiful setting surrounded by the mountains. There were numerous National Parks for hiking. The golfing in the area was also excellent. The condo was well equipped for our needs. We liked the location in the complex as it was very quiet. We enjoyed our evenings on the outside patio. The pool and the clubhouse were a short walk away. The condo was very comfortable with the capacity to sleep six people. Our daughter and grandchildren came down to join us for the spring break and had a wonderful time. If there were any negatives it would be that the mattress on the king bed and the television could be updated. Other than that the condo was great.

This is a wonderful place - bright, clean, good furniture, just 1 minute walk to the swimming pool. It has mountain views from the patio and lots of walking and cycling paths within walking distance. We particularly liked Honeybee Park- it has cacti, a tunnel through the rock and a large canyon - beautiful. The whole area is really the Sonoran Desert with pockets of houses and one park goes over into the next and so on. There is sun (and shade) on the patio all day, very quite area, grounds are well maintained, beds are good, everything you need is there, lots of shopping close by. We had a great time and hope to be back there in the future.

Relaxing at Vistoso
March 16, 2009
We love to get away to Tucson in the winter. Our daughter, a senior in college wanted sunshine, a pool, and a place to relax during her spring break. We found just the place at Vistoso Resort Casitas! The condo was immaculate, right next to the pool/jacuzzi and the golf course! There were even a few movies, CD's & board games to enjoy in the evenings. We will definitely be back!

My parents and I enjoyed this condo immensely. We loved the views. The drive was a bit long but we wanted to away from the city lights and felt it was perfect. We took several day trips from the condo - the drive up Mt. Lemmon was our favorite.
a bit far, but worth it!!

As an attendee of the bead shows in Tucson, we really loved coming back in the evening to this very comfortable condo. It's a bit far out of town, but well worth it - I would definitely stay here again - many thanks - allene rose
