Our experience at the Desert Madre was very nice. The house was perfect for what we were looking for - spacious and quiet. We had a true feeling of privacy because of how the house is positioned next to the neighbors, which was great. Overall condition of the house was great, and the pool and jacuzzi were maintained nicely.
At first, we had trouble finding the place with the directions given, but were helped right away by the host, which we really appreciated.
I also love that the place was pet friendly, which made this the perfect place for our whole family to enjoy.
The house was great! A perfect place to stay on the outskirts of Tucson and enjoy the desert and the mountains. I had friends over each evening and was able to cook, entertain and enjoy the pool. The host made it very easy to get in and get settled and explained the pool and spa mechanics.
Desert Sun Sport is a lovely, very well located house with beautiful landscaping. The house was nicely appointed and very clean. Carla is delightful and made us feel very welcome. We were hoping to do a lot of hiking, and the house is perfectly located for access to Mt. Lemmon and to Saguaro National Park. We would definitely come back to this house and really appreciate Carla's efforts.
The photos and listing are accurate and represent features of the house well. The location is great for quick access to Mount Lemmon. The "property management" contact was very accommodating to meet us on arrival to review the location.
The rental price does NOT include the cost to heat the pool or hot tub, which was not previously mentioned in the rental details. The cost was $40 per day above the already negotiated and paid rate for the house, making the rental more expensive than staying in hotel.
House is spacious with nice pool and spa. We had a nice time at he house.
I would rent this location again.
