Beautiful Retreat!

June 26, 2014

My family (of 8) visited Tucson as part of our vacation. Rancho Privado is absolutely beautiful and offered all the amenities and many unexpected luxuries that will indeed make our stay there a very special memory for us all.

great time in Tucson

April 7, 2014

We rented this for a family vacation. The house provided lots of space to spread out - which was great. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds comfortable (except the twin beds - a little squeaky). The donkeys were a HUGE hit with the kids! Loved the pool/hot tub and used it alot. We did choose to heat the pool - or it would have been quite chilly, but once heated and the with the cover on at night, warmed up nicely. Would definitely return. This is not a luxury property, not in perfect condition (some weeds, some dust, some burned out lightbulbs in bathrooms), but was perfect for us! The owners were around and responsive as well.

A perfect oasis, and close to everything

February 26, 2013

Two friends and I spent a week in Tucson, to explore the area and visit the Gem and Mineral show. All exceeded expectations, but the highlight was our stay at Rancho Privado. The pictures do not do it justice - a sprawling bungalow on exquisite land; fully appointed with lovely art - and very welcoming and comfortable. We began and ended our busy days in this peaceful, beautiful oasis, and feeding the miniature donkeys! Our hosts Lisa and Ray were welcoming and helpful, providing lots of information. The Gem and Mineral Show was worth the visit and we loved Tubac, an artists' enclave just an hour south. A drive to the top of Mount Lemmon was harrowing, but the views spectacular. A perfect vacation for 3 hard working women! We came back recharged and with great memories -- all anchored in our stay at the lovely Rancho Privado. It was simply perfect. Thanks Lisa and Ray!

Wonderful oasis

February 7, 2013

We stayed at La Finca for a sister's reunion and had an amazing time. The home is beautiful and the decor was exceptional. We spent many mornings drinking coffee on the patio and enjoyed the lush landscape. It truly is an oasis in the desert. I wish we had more time to enjoy all the amenities. and plan to return the next time we are in Tucson. I would highly recommend staying here.

A Wonderful Winter Break with Friends

March 4, 2012

Our group of 8 friends really covered the ground in Tucson. The location of this house was perfect for access to the Tucson Gem and Mineral show, hiking and birdwatching (saw the rare Phenopepla in a tree outside the house) in the nearby mountains and parks, even driving to Patagonia and Tubac for one day. But we really enjoying morning coffee in the spacious kitchen area and that evening glass of local and/or South American, Italian, French wine purchased at nearby stores. Several meals were enjoyed at the huge dinning table where we all fit comfortably. The men cooked perfect steaks and ahi one night on the barby while the women relaxed and chatted. Everything was supplied for our kitchen needs from a large assortment of pots and pans to spices. The bathrooms were very clean and just right for our needs. Now we need to come back in the spring to see the trees and flowers bloom.

We rented this property for a Thanksgiving family get together and were more than pleasantly surprised. The home is beautiful, the property is clean and quiet and the miniature donkeys were so much entertainment. The owners where very helpful. Even though it was near midnight when we arrived we were met at the home and given the grand tour complete with margaritas. The owners were always available for our many questions and requests. So many times we rent from online only to find the pictures not true to the home. This was not the case here. We would deffinately return and recommend it to anyone considering a grand stay in Tucson.

Our USTA tennis team qualified for the Sectional Championship in Tucson. We wanted a reward for a good league season. We rented Rancho Privado and were certainly rewarded. It was everything we could hope for. The house was huge, well furnished and maintained and the owners were very attentive to detail. We will certainly return in the future.

A Great Family Getaway

March 3, 2011

We just returned from a wonderful week at Rancho Privado. We were six adults, a two-year-old and a baby. The house was fantastic - lots of space and well equipped. The kids enjoyed the heated pool and feeding carrots to the donkeys. The grounds were lovely - lots of seating areas and an outdoor fireplace (which, regrettably, we didn't use). Safeway, restaurants and shops are a quick drive from the house. Ray and Lisa were fantastic hosts. We will definitely return.

Privacy and Peace

The property, the house and the owners couldn't be better. Everything we expected and so much more! The 3 donkeys in residence added to the experience. The house and grounds would be perfect for a family reunion. Highly recommended and Ray and Lisa went out of there way to ensure our stay was pleasant.

Magical Place!

October 28, 2010

We just got back from a trip to Tucson for our wedding. We rented Rancho Privado for our wedding weekend and I am so happy we did! It was absolutely amazing, the pictures really do not do it justice. The house and grounds are unbelievable! We had such a good time relaxing and saying hi to the donkeys who walk up to you like a dog would. They are the cutest ever! I know that our wedding weekend would not have been as wonderful had we not stayed at the ranch. We are already counting down the days when we can stay again for an anniversary!

Heavenly Hacienda

February 21, 2010

Our week at Rancho Privado was ideal. There were 12 of us counting our 2 grandchildren who slept on an air mattress in the master bedroom. We were in Tucson visiting family and celebrating a family reunion. Because of the layout of the home (actually two houses joined by an enclosed large breezeway,) my sister-in-law and her husband and adult son were able to enjoy quiet and privacy away from the "main" house. Lisa and Ray could not have been more accommodating. While respecting our privacy, they made certain someone was always available in case there was anything we needed. The home is gorgeous. The property beautifully maintained and spacious. Heated swimming pool and hot tub. Jacuzzi in the master bedroom. Everything we needed was provided. There are outside cats, horses,and three adorable miniature donkeys which our grandchildren loved petting and feeding. Rancho Privado exceeded our expectations. We could not have been more pleased.

Good Times at Rancho Privado

June 8, 2009

Our stay at Rancho Privado was very relaxing and enjoyable. The Rancho made you feel like you were out in the middle of the country but yet Tucson was a very short drive. We wish we would of explored more of the Tucson area but we just couldn't leave the Ranch.

Wonderful Place

May 12, 2009

Was remarkable, the whole place. We enjoyed the house, the grounds, the donkeys. Our hosts, Lisa and Ray, went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The house is beautiful, the grounds are full of flowers and water features. Very relaxing, but fun. The donkeys could not help but make you smile. We will come back.
