Our Second Holiday at Casa Campana

We were so impressed with Casa Campana last year, we had to come for a second visit. It is the perfect place to relax, reconnect with family and nature, and explore the great state of Arizona. The house is very roomy and well equipped and the decor is beautiful. The pool and patio area draws you outdoors to the beautiful landscaping and comfortable conversation areas. An afternoon nap on the Bali bed is pure bliss! I love that you can walk out the door and into the desert, which is so fascinating. We saw quail, jackrabbits, roadrunners, coyotes, and, of course, the nighthawks. My father was fortunate to see a bobcat, which totally made his holiday! We also enjoyed an amazing evening on the pool deck viewing the moon, stars and planets with Ben Loker of Arizona StarTours – definitely a highlight of our stay. We love the location, north Tucson but close to everything, including I-10. The nearby outlet mall is fantastic for those of us who like to shop. Some of the other places visited were Tombstone, Pima Air & Space Museum, and the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. For some of us, though, it was hard to tear ourselves away from the tranquility of Casa Campana. The Welcome gift bag was/is delightful along with the loaded fruit bowl (everything we needed for guacamole and fruit salad)! Also much appreciated were the tourist brochures and maps, and the books, movies, and music. We felt so spoiled and everyone in our party was thrilled to be in such a wonderful setting. Thank you, Mark and Susan for sharing your home and for your exceptional care and hospitality!

Beautiful House in a Beautiful Location

This was our second visit and the property was as immaculate as before. In addition, the owners spared no efforts to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Desert Oasis!!

We were so ready to get away from our Michigan winter and this was our first visit to Arizona. What a treat to stay in your fabulous desert oasis! The location is so peaceful and beautiful with the natural desert scape surrounding your home. The views of the mountains can be seen from nearly every spot in and around your home. So many choices in sitting/lounging areas around your home allow for quiet time and enjoyable eye catching views! Loved the front courtyard with the relaxing fountain and the back area with fabulous pool, hot tub, fire pit and bali bed!! Also loved all of the lanterns in the trees at night. Your home is spotless and absolutely gorgeous with the rustic southwestern decor. So many fun details to make it feel extra comfortable and special. Absolutely everything we needed, and more, was provided. So very kind of you to leave us with a gift bag filled with goodies...yummy foods and wine!! We had 2 teenage boys that loved the pool table and choice of movies. They hiked everyday and came home with interesting desert finds such as a deer antler and at night we had a special flashlight that allowed them to search for the glow of scorpions! The excursion highlight of our week was Arizona Adventures ATV's thru Box Canyon. About an hours drive from the house but well worth it! Spent that afternoon exploring the canyon on ATV's with tour guides...an absolute blast for both the teens and adults! We would absolutely recommend your property to anyone! We've rented many homes in different states but this, by far, was the best! Thank you again....we look forward to coming back at Christmas!!

The house is SPECTACULAR!

We are a family of four with two teenage boys. My mother had come along and my in-laws live in Tucson and visited regularly. We had the best time! The house is spotless and has room for everyone to enjoy. The backyard is a place you can stay all-day with the various places to relax. The swimming pool and jacuzzi are awesome and we enjoyed these daily. I would highly recommend this property!

Great place to stay in Tucson

This house is as advertised. It is very clean and well maintained. The kitchen had everything that we needed. The backyard with the pool and outside patio is a great place to reflect on your day's activities. There were 7 adults staying at the house for the week and there was plenty of space for all of us. We could not have asked for anything more from the property. Mark and Susan are the perfects hosts. Mark checked in to be sure that things were going OK. Thanks for a great stay.

Another Perfect Stay at the Casa...

I`ve been meaning to write this review for a while, so Mark and Susan, my apologies! This was my family's second stay at the Casa...we so loved our stay in 2014 that we returned for an longer stay in 2015. The home is absolute perfection right down to the smallest detail, making for a carefree stress relieving stay. I'd put this home up against the finest resort properties in Tucson, or anywhere else in Arizona for that matter! The owners are a joy to work with and are committed to providing an unforgettable stay. Anything else I would have said has already been covered in previous reviews (including my own from 2014). Don`t hesitate to rent this property, you'll be glad you did! Sincerely, Nancy B. & Family

Beautiful Home in the Desert

This is a gorgeous home, spacious, beautifully furnished and architecturally stunning. The house is well designed to allow great views of the desert from inside, and outside. The outside spaces are so perfectly developed, it draws you out to either the front or the backyard with pool, lounge, covered patio. The hosts were gracious, accommodating, and helpful in every way. I recommend this property as a wonderful place to stay while visiting Tucson. Dr. James I.

Absolutely Awesome Home!

Our time spent at Casa Campana was incredible. We cooked in and found everything we needed in the way of spices and cooking oils. Didn't have to bother with any type of cleaning supplies either. This home was just beautiful inside and out. We really enjoyed the outdoor area with the pool, hot tub, bali bed. It was like living in paradise for 10 days. Our girls had a great week away from work and they can't stop talking about how great everything was. The view of the mountains from the house is awesome. We enjoyed many nights sitting around the gas fire pit listening to the coyotes howl. Had a fantastic time in the desert and will definitely be back:) Thanks again, Tim and Nancy

A Wonderful Week

What a wonderful week we had at this home. The house is well appointed. They have thought of everything. It is a quiet setting and our group had a great time. The home owner is very attentive and checked in throughout the week. We had a multi-generation group from age 28 to 85, and everyone enjoyed themselves. It is a beautiful place to watch those great Tucson sunsets and the patio is a great place to relax in the evening. Oh those lanterns in the trees! So lovely. If you are looking for a home where all your needs have been thought of, this is the place to go. Mark and Susan, we will be back. And thank you for all those little touches that make this the BEST vacation rental ever!

Exceptional Home, Excellent Location

Spectacular home. Stocked with absolutely everything you would need from a variety of dishes, excellent cookware, furnishings - more than all the comforts of home. We stay in many VRBO's and have never enjoyed one that had as much thoughtfulness put into the preparation of the home for renting. Additionally, Mark & Susan are wonderful people and were genuinely concerned that our time there was enjoyable! Rent this home in Marana!!

Jewel of the Tortolitas

Do not hesitate to rent this spectacular property! We have 20 years (15 in Tucson) of vacation rental experience and this is our favorite Arizona home. The open floor plan of the living space is very comfortable and welcoming. The outdoor living areas are amazing, both the front courtyard and the expansive back patio/pool are unsurpassed - the photos, although great quality, cannot capture the real beauty and charm. The home is generously appointed (we especially enjoyed the game cabinet), and meal prep did not leave us wanting for any gadgets. We dined most evenings on the patio and enjoyed the gas fire pit afterwards as the starry expanse appeared overhead along with the night hawks catching their evening meal. This backyard sanctuary was topped off by views of the city lights and serenity of the quiet, still desert. The owners are extremely responsive, helpful, and yet not obtrusive. We wholeheartedly endorse this true resort oasis.

Ultimate Desert Oasis

Casa de Campana is a stunning home set in a pristine desert environment. The indoor living areas are spacious and comfortable. With 8 adults during our stay, we never lacked for "personal space". The kitchen accommodates 3 or more for cooking, and the open living design allows everyone to gather during meal preparation. The kitchen is also well-stocked with any tools a cook might need. The owners did not hover but were available by text or phone if we needed anything. Our last minute request to heat the pool was conveyed and accomplished with ease. This home was immaculate and well stocked with all essentials. Indoor recreation included pool and ping pong tables, satellite tv, and a generous assortment of reading materials, board games and the most comfortable couch that held all 8 of us for an evening of games. The outdoor living space is really something to behold. At least 5 different lounging alcoves including dining area, comfy couches and seating areas and my personal favorite the bali bed. Mornings and evenings are magical, with birds and coyotes providing the soundtrack. The swimming pool, jacuzzi tub and fire pit were a hit with all of our party. Beautiful landscaping fills out the scene, all showcasing the best of desert botanicals. Casa Campana truly is the ultimate vacation rental. Mark and Susan have captured the essence of vacation hospitality. Their beautiful property showcases all things Arizona. I can't wait to return.

Paradise

We've rented houses all over the world but this is the best equipped and most beautiful! The house is incredibly spacious and has everything one could want (except for a laundry rack which Mark immediately said he would provide - yes, I'm one of those crazy people who actually likes doing laundry on vacation). We went to the Desert Museum and Saguaro National Parks but found our favorite walks were just around the house where we found many cactus spines to take home. We also loved the San Xavier del Bac Mission - make sure to watch the video and you may then see the same restorers working on the church. My favorite activities were just relaxing at the house, going from pool to hot tub and drinking a glass of wine in the evening, watching the night hawks wheeling overhead. Thanks, Mark for creating such a magical experience for us all (and for the wonderful basket of fruit and wine...)

A Beautiful Place to Stay

Grab this house if you can! It is beautiful and comfortable with wonderful views of the desert and mountains. A large patio area with flowers, cactus, a pool, hot tub, fire pit and many comfortable seating areas. You can eat outside at the large dining table and when it gets dark you can sit and watch the lesser nighthawks swooping overhead as they catch insects to eat. A great kitchen and living room and large comfortable bedrooms with large bathrooms make this house a pleasure to be in. All are super clean. Near some restaurants and not too far from downtown Tucson. I loved it here and wished I didn't have to leave. You will be very happy here as we all were. The owners are friendly and available if you need anything. To me this house is perfection! Lucky you!!!

Couldn't Have Been Better

Having traveled lots and used VRBO many times, we could not have been more pleased with this gorgeous property. What a perfect desert vacation for our family! My husband and I traveled to Tucson from Colorado with our two young children, and my parents and my husband's mother also joined us. After a week at this lovely home, we all wished we could have stayed for longer! If you have young children, this is absolutely the perfect rental home for you... Everything you could possibly need is already there for you: sippy-cups, plastic kid plates/bowls/silverware, highchair, Pack n' Play, kid-size life jackets, pool noodles/rafts, games and puzzles, jogging stroller, and a play yard (perfect for use on the shaded patio). The pool has a shallow end that is perfect for little ones, including a built-in umbrella that nicely shades part of the shallow side... ideal for kids who sunburn easily but still want to be in the pool. The large house easily accommodated our party. The four bedrooms were perfect for our group. The large master suite felt luxurious, and we enjoyed the easy access to the huge back patio... perfect for drinking a quiet cup of coffee outside before the rest of the group stirred. We found the Tahoe bedroom and the Route 66 bedroom ideal for our family of four, with easy access to our little ones through the jack-and-jill bathroom. The queen bedroom does not have an ensuite bathroom, but there's easy access to a full bath just across the hall. The open kitchen/dining area/living room made it easy to socialize and keep everyone together, even while cooking meals. Not only was there plenty of room for the entire group, the house was incredibly well equipped and wonderfully clean. We really enjoy cooking together, and every time we prepared a meal, everything we could have possibly needed was in the well-stocked kitchen and ready for our use. The whole group loved the pool and hot tub, and the patio is perfect for lounging and dining al fresco. We so enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings around the fire pit and watching the nighthawks dip and dive around the pool and patio area. What a perfect spot to drink a glass of wine, enjoy the sunset, and revel in the desert splendor. We so enjoyed meeting Mark and Susan and found them to be lovely, gracious, and helpful hosts. The great welcome bag, fruit basket, and pillow pets for our kids were very appreciated. All in all, highly recommended. We'll definitely return!

Lovely Family Holiday

This was the perfect place for our family to meet and enjoy a week together. We did some touring and eating out but the best times were at the house swimming, playing games, and just being together. Such a well planned and well equipped home!

This is truly an amazing property! We loved every minute of our vacation here. The owners were so friendly and helpful.

We will definitely be back.

Amazing Property and Wonderful Owners

The property is stunning, with mountain views all around. The pictures don't do it justice, as it's even more beautiful in person. Upon arrival, the owners had went above and beyond to make our family feel welcome. The house was spotless, and we didn't have to do a thing...we just unpacked and were ready to go! The house is far enough out of the city to get some nice quiet time, yet close enough to enjoy the amenities like a local grocery store, and Starbucks. Mt. Lemmon is a short drive, and we ended up going up there two days in a row because we loved it so much the first time! There is a state park about 10 minute's drive from the house with the best "golden hour" on the mountains of anywhere I have ever seen. If you like sunsets, there is a wonderful, gentle hike that allows for breathtaking views at sunset. I have already referred two people since we've been back home (2 days!). I would recommend this rental to anyone who is looking to relax, yet have hiking trails and mountain climbing a short drive away. The pool is wonderful, and it is an amazing thing to be floating in the pool at night, looking up at the night sky, and see the twinkling lights of Tucson below. Best rental we have ever had, and we have traveled all around the world. Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home! We will definitely be back.

THIS HOME WAS A BLESSING FOR OUR FAMILY TO EXPERIENCE

THE OWNERS GREETED US WITH SOFT MUSIC, A LOVING ATMOSPHERE OF SPARKLING CLEAN EVERYTHING....AND A HARMONIOUSLY QUIET AND SERENE WALLED DESERT RETREAT...of sparkling pool, hot tub, and after dark, a gas fire ring to sit around like a campfire...to sip a glass of wine. We visited during monsoon season....and it rained...but, we hiked Tohono Chul...and the Desert Sonora Museum...anyway...both great learning experiences. This was our second visit here...this time, the baby learning to walk loved it, we retired elders loved it as did the mom and dad still working. With over 60 movies from which to choose and a terrific pool table..(we all laughed a lot there too!)..we were never bored. Bird lovers, desert lovers, hikers ( scenic Mt. Lemmon invites, maybe next time!) and the charm of this remarkably appointed home gives one memories for a lifetime. Thank you Mark and Susan for your kindness to us and all your guests. And the heavens for their starry, starry nights and truly awesome sunsets.

Amazing Casa Campana

This property is beautiful. The home, the landscape, the scenery... Just amazing. We had eight people in our party and we were all very comfortable during our entire seven night stay. The owners thought of just about every small detail you could want, when on vacation. Mark was quick to answer any questions we had and even provided us with a welcome gift bag upon arrival with lots of local goodies. Watching the frequent thunderstorms around us in the night sky while having dinner in the beautiful outdoor patio was an experience we will not soon forget. We will definitely be back if the opportunity to return to Tucson presents itself!

Truly Exceptional....

Casa Campana is lovely! Located close to everything yet tucked away in a serene desert setting, the Casa was a perfect reunion retreat for my five friends and me. There is not an item or detail overlooked -- leading each of us to wish we could transport at least the kitchen to our own homes! We enjoyed the terrace and pool daily, specifically at night when the the lantern lighting turned the beautifully landscaped surroundings into a fairyland. The owners were more than wonderful -- answering every question, responding immediately and always attentive to every detail. There was even a lovely welcome gift bag waiting for us when we arrived. We are hoping some day to return to Casa de Campana whether together or with our own families -- it is definitely a home to return to!

So Close To Everything!!!!

The photo's online do only half justice to this amazing property just outside of Tucson. When we arrived, we were taken aback from how beautiful the exterior grounds and look of the home were. Upon entering the home, we all had to stop once inside and catch our breath. The interior layout and attention to detail were absolutely gorgeous. The cleanliness of the entire property blew us away.... Mark and Susan are two amazing hosts and they have a treasure near the mountains. We wish we had time to stay an additional week. There are grocery stores, restaurants (Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain), golf courses, hikes all within a few minutes of this property. As a custom home builder, I am taking this floor plan and some great ideas of the interior and implementing them in my own builds. Thanks again Mark and Susan for such an amazing getaway.

Simply a Great Place to Stay

Casa Campana is a beautiful house - close to local amenities, yet in a true desert location. Being weary travellers from the UK arriving at the house (in a storm) having been awake 22 hours, it was great to find that Mark and Susan had thoughtfully provided coffee for us and also left a gift bag. This is just one example of their attention to detail and commitment to making sure their guests are comfortable - we have rented a number of properties in the US and Casa Campana is without a doubt the best of them. It's all too easy to laze by the pool watching the birds and the butterflies, but there's a lot to do in south eastern Arizona and another advantage of the house is that it's so easy to get places from there. In summary, we enjoyed our time at Casa Campana immensely and would definitely recommend it to anyone planning a stay in the Tucson area.

Peaceful Desert Oasis

It is hard to find the words to express the perfection of Casa Campana. First, we can say it is just as beautiful as the pictures, if not more so. The house itself is extremely well appointed with very nice furnishings and high-quality kitchen/cooking items. Everything one could possibly need is there and neatly organized and labeled. The house was scrupulously clean and the grounds meticulously manicured. It is quite obvious that the owners take great pride in this home and care very much about maintaining everything in pristine condition. The outdoor spaces, both in front and in back, are very inviting with comfortable seating arrangements and gorgeous flowers and plantings. The area in back even has solar shades that can be lowered to protect the seating area from the intense sun when it is low in the sky in the afternoons. There is always a comfortable place to hang out and read or socialize during the day or at night. The location also turned out to be quite convenient, as there is a large supermarket very nearby, as well as some restaurants. It's also an easy drive into town to sample the vast array of possibilities there. While we normally enjoy eating out, we found our surroundings so peaceful and pleasant we rarely left the property. At night the outdoor space is somehow even more appealing with gorgeous lighting and mesmerizing solar lights in the trees that actually change colors! Most nights we simply stayed home to enjoy the atmosphere-and of course the hot tub and the fire pit-as well as the night sounds from the animals. We have rented many homes over the years through HomeAway and other sites, but we can honestly say Casa Campana was the absolute best - we are already making plans to return next year.

Each year we plan a trip somewhere in the US to gather the family. After much research on VRBO we chose Casa Campana, we were not disappointed. The home is beautiful, spacious with everything you need. The outside with its fountains, pools, and fire pit is landscaped beautifully. Our hosts Mark and Sue were wonderful to work with from the beginning to the end. Our Thanksgiving was truly amazing. John

Everything was perfect at the Casa. We loved the location. Privacy but close to all the things you need. We rent high-end homes all over the world. It has become our preferred way to travel. I always end up buying things that I invariably leave behind. This was the best equipped home we have ever been in. Cooking was a delight. We had a couple of rainy days and the comfy living room with big screen TV for movie watching was a big treat. Mark and Susan were wonderful hosts. It was clear that making our stay at the Casa was a top priority. Thanks to both of them for opening up their beautiful home to us.

5 STAR VACATIONING IN THE DESERT

Casa Campana is the Ritz Carlton of vacation homes. From the time you enter till the time you leave you will enjoy all the fine amenities that Mark and Susan have built and created in this very special home surrounded by pure nature in the Arizona desert. We were wowed by the pictures before arriving but even more wowed after staying there for nearly a week. From the sunrises thru the picture window in the master bedroom to the sunsets from the pool and surrounding patio everyday was truly a masterpiece and enjoyed thoroughly by our family.

Incredible Vacation - Incredible Home!

Our family stayed over Spring Break 2014. The home is absoultely beautiful! We've chosen vacation rentals many times in the past, and this was our best experience to date. The home is very large, beautifully decorated, spotless, and has a fully-equipped kitchen. Everyone in the family mentioned how comfy their beds and pillows were! We arrived late in the evening and came in to find a goodie-bag filled with local treats to munch on and water bottles to take on our outings. What a lovely surprise after our long day of travels! The outdoor living area and pool is where we spent the majority of our time. Sitting around the firepit watching the Arizona sunset will be in our memories forever! Tucson is filled with activities and we tried to squeeze in as many as possible - visit to Old Tucson, riding the tram in Sabino Canyon and hiking back down, the ASARCO mine tour, a sunset trail ride at Tanque Verde Dude Ranch, and more! As much fun as we had during the day - we always looked forward to coming "home" and relaxing at Casa Campana! WHEN we go back, we're planning to take a hot air balloon ride, rent bikes to explore the trails, and my husband and I would like to rent a harley for a day. Mark and Susan were wonderful to work with! It was the perfect family vacation!

Elegant Home With All The Amenities Included

This is not so much a rental property as it is a beautiful home! The owners of this house have really put a lot of thought, time and effort into providing a lovely home that has all of the features one needs to enjoy the Tucson desert. A nice flat screen TV, indoor and outdoor sound system, pool table, table tennis (not Ping-Pong folks), games, movies...one really needs to stay several weeks to use everything. Beautifully decorated, both inside and out - there are so many nice touches, such as solar powered lights on the trees and water fountains, I cannot remember them all. The owners have even thought of the small things, like a generous supply of paper products and a full spice rack for cooking. Nice location as well...hiking in the Totolita mountains nearby is great - try to time it so you can hear the outdoor American indian flute music at the Ritz-Carlton. Our favorite restaurants were the nearby Vero Amore Italian place and El Charro's Mexican (not nearby). The gas fire pit outside was great - I will make that a needed feature on other properties. Did I mention the great gift basket?

An amazing & tranquil location

Mark & Susan more than provided with this home! Everything we needed, or even wanted, was there for us. The home is beautiful and spacious and feels like you are alone in a desert, yet it's still close enough to stores so you can run out when needed - not that you'd want to! We were thouroughly delighted with all the little touches; the front porch at night is magical! Susan was so kind to leave a welcome gift and Mark was so helpful when we had a small issue with the pool. I've rented many homes before and have never felt so taken care of. Thanks for a fabulous time! I really hope to have another stay at Casa Campana.

Beautiful oasis near Dove Mountain

If you want to experience southern Arizona beauty in a peaceful setting, this is the place. The house is lovely and meticulously maintained. There has been a lot of attention paid to details that make the experience comfortable -- lights in the trees, umbrellas and several patio seating areas for all sun locations, modern kitchen equipment, comfortable furnishings, a pool table, remote controlled lights and fans, indoor/outdoor sound system, and the list goes on... The welcome basket consisting of fresh fruit, k-cups, snacks and best-of-all wine was appreciated. It reduced the hecticness of arrival and let us have a break before hitting the (surprisingly) nearby grocery store. There are instructions for everything! It was a relief not to have to spend a lot of time figuring out how to, for example, turn on the TV. It was evident that a great deal of effort had been put into making sure we had a great stay. And we did!

Casa de Campana is a Perfect Vacation Spot

Wow, what a beautiful home this is! It was the perfect house for our vacation. The desert scenery was breathtaking, the pool in the back yard was refreshing and the house provided so much room for everyone. The detail and amenities in the house were amazing. The owners anticipated our every need and then some. The house was clean and extremely well maintained. It was perfectly located near the highways, many of the Tucson area attractions, and shopping. We loved our time at Case Campana so much we engaged a realtor while there to assist us in looking for a piece of property for ourselves! We definitely recommend this home and hope to visit again. Thanks for making us feel so welcome.

Peacful and relaxing...

I`m not sure there`s much more to be said than has been in previous reviews! As a ten year vacation home renter in Tucson this is by far the nicest property I and my family have stayed in. The listing and photos are spot on and the owners have obviously put a lot of time and effort into their home as it shows down to the smallest detail. The welcome gift bag and fruit basket were such a treat after having traveled all day from the east coast. If you`re looking for peace and quiet while being close to all that Tucson has to offer this is it....though with the big screen TV, outdoor sound system and amazing backyard retreat you may not want to leave! It`s the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and escape from the everyday. Thank you Mark and Susan for sharing your lovely home!

Amazing experience

This was an incredible rental! In fact, I'm not sure how any other rental we may do could ever compare. The property was spotless, even better than the description, and we felt like the owner really cared about our experience. It was the perfect home for several couples or a big family. The kitchen was perfect for cooking away from home, and the outside living area was beyond all expectations. If you're in the Tucson area - this is definitely the place to stay! If we are ever fortunate enough to be in Tucson again, we won't even look for anything else - we know exactly where we'll stay - HERE!

Great Place!

We have stayed at a number of VRBO homes in the past. Sometimes pictures make a property out to be better than it is. Not in this case! The home is even nicer than the pictures show. We had a great, relaxing time. The property is very private and first class. Great pool, hot tub and propane fire pit. Beds vare very comfortable. It felt like we were at a 5 star resort which is why we rate it 5 stars. Hope to get there again soon.
