“Great home”

Reviewed 17 May 2014

We used the house for a mini family get together. My son, daughter in law, granddaughter (from Chicago) my son from Az all met here to visit my father who is in a retirement home close by. Vince and Lori, his onsite helper, made sure that everythubg was perfect. Vince even upgraded the cable so we could watch the NBA playoffs instantly. The beds were comfortable the kitchen great. Anyone staying her doesnt need to worry about cooking condiments as it is the best stock kitchen I have ever seen. The pool is fantastic and we loved the four burner BBQ grill. A great place to stay.

Owner's reply: Terry, So glad you enjoyed your stay. I try to make the house meet everyones needs. Glad your boys were able to watch the games. You are welcome back anytime. Thanks again, Vince

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!

Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, girls getaway, families with teenagers.

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.

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!

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.....:>)

.This house is great for a family get together of all ages. With everything on one floor and the walk-in shower it was it easy for my 90-year-old mom to get around. And the house is kid friendly (we had two toddlers visit). The pool table, pool, and ping-pong provide plenty of activities for teens (and adults). Single, large open space, inside and out, made for comfortable get-togethers. What really impressed us was how well the house is maintained and supplied for guests. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, tissues, soap, and plenty of fuel for the gas grill - little touches like that made it very nice. Vince and Lori run a great operation. Very smooth process giving us everything we needed with no hassles. Do note that this house is in the northern suburbs. This worked for us, but it's 30-45 minutes to downtown destinations so you will spend a lot of time in the car if your activities are in the city.

.This property was EXACTLY as advertised and beyond! It was comfortable and everything you could possibly need was available! The home is well maintained and clean. The pool is great, especially being covered, keeps it clean for use. There was no need to have it heated at this time of year. But above everything, this home owner was so responsive! I did contact him about a few things, a minor bathroom issue which has been rectified. He responds IMMEDIATELY! I was with other family members who were renting another property and they could not get in touch with their landlord. This guy is GREAT!
I will find a reason to return to Tucson and rent this home! I highly recommend it! I was in town for my son's wedding and we used this house for the bridal party "beauty prep", it was perfect! the master bath is great for that, and the master bedroom allowed for all the girls to stay within viewing of the other girls getting ready, resting, and just generally having fun "the morning of"!
I really can't say enough about this home!

.This was our fourth stay in this lovely villa. The property is spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. We had a great time in the swimming pool, and our children also enjoyed the pool table and table tennis - much fun for all! This vacation home continues to match and exceed our expectations, and the photographs on the site do not really do it justice.
The property is clean and well-maintained, and the owner most helpful in all communication. The villa is on a quiet street in a great neighbourhood, with great mountain views to the front. Excellent stores and restaurants can be found a very short drive away.
We will make the (long and tiring!) journey from England to visit this home again soon...

.What a perfect place to spend a week. The property was immaculate when we arrived. Nice welcome with wine and chocolates. We did plenty of cooking while there and enjoyed the fully stocked spice cabinet (we added a couple) and the host of other kitchen amenities. The bedrooms were spacious and came in handy for our out of town guests. We slept between 3 and 10 folks druring the week. Everyone loved the house. It was so warm and welcoming. We spent a lot of our time on the huge patio and just relaxed. The bikes got some good use while we were there as well. This place has been well maintained, has great Wi-Fi, HD televisions everywhere, and plenty of things to do if you are bored. One of the great things I appreciated was that the house is stocked with almost everything you might need, including dish soaps, laundry detergent, coffee, paper towels, napkins, condiments, etc. We were there for my daughter's wedding and the home was located near all kinds of shopping and retail stores. Great neighbors and a friendly neighborhood. No issues with anything not working or broken. This place is a good value if you are lucky enough to be able to book it for the time you will be there. The owner is very accomodating. Thanks for a great stay at this Home Away from Home.

.This home was more than we could have imagined. Not only is it true to the description on line, but the owner decorated it so tastefully for Christmas, we only needed to add gifts under the tree. Our group included one pre-teen, one teen, their parents, and a couple of grown men: one son and one grandson. Another son, his wife and daughter stayed elsewhere but joined us for all the activities and festivities. The swimming pool, the pool table and ping-pong got lots of action, as did the basketball court. The hardier members of the group found many great hiking trails. Everyone had a turn in the well-supplied kitchen, cooking holiday feasts. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our family reunion and Christmas.

.We had a great time at the house! We were in town for a wedding and the house provided everything we could possibly need for a week away from home. We were able to cook for a large crowd and entertain ourselves with billiards, swimming, ping pong and just relaxing in the beautiful living room. Everything was as advertised. The house was extremely clean and well ordered. All questions were answered in a timely manner. The house is close to a super market and other shopping as well as Catalina State Park and Seguaro National Park. I hope for a return visit some day. It was fabulous.

Your beautiful home in Oro Valley, AZ was everything and more. It was perfect for our family of 17 coming from India, Guam and Massachusetts. The festive environment when we entered, with the house decorated for Christmas and the tree lights, was so welcoming. The pool table, table tennis and the heated swimming pool were enjoyed by everyone each day. The house was beautiful with a well stocked kitchen and loads of towel. It was large and spacious for us to really enjoy all sitting around in the evening visiting and the large patio was wonderful for the BBQs we had with family swimming, playing table tennis and some of the grandsons shooting baskets. The location is so close to shopping, restaurants, theater, malls, hiking and biking. The walking trail near the house was great too. Thank you Vince for making our reunion one we will never forget. It was unamimous that we have our next reunion at your home in Oro Valley.

We had 7 adults and 3 children staying at the house. It was very comfortable and very clean. The pool was great for the adults as well as the kids. The pool has a large step for the really little ones and some areas of shade during the day. There were stores and restaurants that were within a 10-15 minute drive and a very nice walking trail nearby. Our family has our reunion once a year and we will definitely rent this house again.

This Oro Valley estate is everything described/pictured and more. The "more" being exceptionally clean, welcoming home-like feel, plenty of room to gather without feeling crowded and a very well stocked kitchen with all kinds of equipment and necessities. We had as many as 4 adult children and 3 "teen" grandchildren at one time with us and it was more than anticipated. The heated pool is very comfortable during the winter months and was a luxury for those of us coming from Michigan. Highly recommended.

Three couple rented this property in January to escape the winter in Denver, hoping for some sunshine and warmth. The house provided the warmth, but unfortunately the weather was a wee bit brisk (no fault of the owner!). We were all thankful for the great amenities the home had to offer since we spent so much time indoors. It is a wonderful place to entertain. Open spaces throughout the main living area that are conducive to mingling without feeling crowded. Our guests enjoyed the use of the pool table and we all commented on how good of condition it was kept and how level it was. We cooked full breakfasts for at least 8 daily and the kitchen easily supported any needs we had.

Vince's house was the most fully loaded vacation rental we have ever stayed at. Everything from a kitchen Aide mixer to serving platters for turkey and a great barbecue was there. Plus all of the family entertainment options one could ever want. Clean, well managed, easy and inviting. Since we came during Christmas, this included two Christmas trees and Christmas stockings already set up! The one problem with the house, which for me as a music buff was limiting, was the stereo. There was one, and it looked like it was going to be more than adequate, but either I just couldn't figure it out, or it had poor sound quality, a problem with not being able to turn off the outside speakers and no way I could see to get my computer to play through. This house is so well maintained I bet Vince is on it and gets it fixed, but if music is important to you be sure to check that out.

My Response
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay over the Christmas Holiday. I have made arrangements to have the stereo system looked at. I also ordered a new Bluetooth Wireless Speaker System for the house, It will be installed next week. I am always looking to add whatever will make the guests stay more enjoyable. Thanks again, Vince R.

We had our family from Ohio and Northern California all convene at this beautiful home. It was absolutely perfect on every level. Many of our family members stayed at the surrounding hotels and the home is where we gathered to celebrate this momentous occasion. The amenities were so family centric which we loved. The pool, the family ping pong tournament, the multiple seating areas where the grandparents could relax while the grandkids played pool...sensational. While we brought most of our own pots, pans, knives (because I'm a persnickety cook!) the kitchen was incredibly well stocked and was perfect for our purposes. We can't wait to come back to Oro Valley and will absolutely stay here. Thank you Vince and neighbor Debbie for all of your hospitality.

During the rental process Vince was MORE than helpful and very patient. My family and I spent three nights here and when we walked into the house it was gorgeous. The kitchen is stocked to the brim and then some. We had the pool heated and my grandsons were in it as long as we were here. I forgot names but there are so many to choose from, don't waste luggage space. The neighbor who takes charge of the property came by to say hello. The next morning she dropped off donuts. Very sweet touch to an already amazing vacation in this beautiful house. On the negative...nothing. I will love to stay here again when I come to visit family in Tucson. Thank you Vince.

What could have been a very high stress week as many family members were congregating in Tucson for son's out-of-state wedding was instead a wonderful, peaceful and beautiful family and friend reunion thank's to this God-send property. In fact it was not until after commercial resort began baiting and switching and making last minute rate increases on blocked rooms did I search out and find this home. We entertained up to 13 people at a time and never once felt crowded. Fantastic property!

The home was fully equipped with anything and everything and had more than enough space to accommodate the 10 of us.

Our family had a wonderful 6-day stay at Vince's large, beautiful home. We cooked a lot of meals for up to 11 people while we were there, and the kitchen had every single dish, appliance, and utensil that we would have ever needed. The beds were very comfortable, and the linens were high quality. We weren't looking for a place with a pool, but we definitely enjoyed it and the beautiful back yard and patio. Vince was extremely helpful and responsive and his manager was just as good. I'd highly recommend this house to anyone who is looking for an alternative to a hotel.

If you give customers good value and courteous treatment they're yours forever...they'll come back time and time again. If my travels for next year have me in the area I will definitely look into a return visit. No need for me to repeat all the fantastic reviews posted here. Every positive comment below is true. Like many travelers before us we leave behind non-perishables and the wife feels obligated to restock consumables for the dishwasher, laundry room and bathrooms. Upon arrival you get the feeling that you could stay here with just the cloths on your back not needing to bring anything else. We were not all able to be there for the entire week together at the same time so the 2 family members who only had 3 nights there did not want to come home to our rainy weather.

A great, quiet, neigborhood with a little park near by giving a feel of privacy yet close to all the amenities anyone might need. We hosted a dinner for family who live in the area and the evening will go down in the family history books as a favorite memory because of the calm, refreshing nature of this fabulous home.

We were in town for our daughter's wedding at Tohono Chul. We couldn't have picked a better location. We loved the house; it was immaculate, decorated beautifully, and very comfortable. The pictures don't do it justice. It had everything we could have wanted. The kitchen was well-stocked and we enjoyed cooking some of our meals. We enjoyed the pool and the nice patio area. The area surrounding the home was great for some early morning walks. We were close to the grocery store which was a plus. Finally, Vince, the owner was terrific. He was very responsive, always getting back to me in a timely manner. When we had a minor issue with the jacuzzi, he sent a repair person out to fix it right away. I highly recommend this property. If we have another opportunity to visit Tucson, I would love to stay here again.

This house was absolutely perfect for our golf trip in Tucson! With 4 rooms (including a TV in each one) and 2 fully equipped bathrooms, it was as good as it gets to rest after 18 (or 36) holes of Golf. The house is also equipped with everything you want to have some more playing time after the golf : Basketball hoop, nice heated pool, ping pong table outside with a pool table, electronic dart game and any table game you wish to play. The Kitchen was also perfectly equipped to prepare great Breakfasts and Dinners. Very nice neighborhood as well. I would recommend this place to anyone with no hesitation! The owner is also very friendly and responsive. Nothing negative to say... a perfect experience all around!
