This home was designed with its roofline to mimic a special part of the Catalina Mountains. With floor to ceiling windows, the views of the mountains are spectacular! The interiors are interesting with many angles and gorgeous slate walls.

The house has two bedrooms each with a king size bed and full bathroom and private sitting areas open to the outdoors. Off of Sabino Canyon Road, the residence is close to popular hiking area Sabino Canyon, golf courses and great restaurants. House can accommodate five people. Rates are based on double occupancy.

We met Carla on arrival and she told the history of the house. This house is amazing and we fell in love with it. The views of the Catalina Mountains are fantastic. The desert landscape is captivating and we were lucky enough to see some of the wildlife. To wake up in the morning with the sun streaming into the house, the birds singing and the mountains looking majestic was a joy.
The house is unique and the architecture means that you are continually delighted by the design.
The house was spotless and well equipped. The location is great with shops, restaurants and Sabino Canyon all within easy reach.
