Perfect stay in Tucson
We stayed at Meg's ranch house for eight days and enjoyed it very much. The location was key to us, as we wanted to be near the Tanque Verde area, and not too far a drive from Vail, where a family member lives. The house has three comfortable bedrooms and two large family room areas, both with tons of seating, and one with a large dining table. There are probably one hundred or more movies to watch and a large screen TV with cable. There is a little Koi pond in one of the family rooms and a very large birdhouse with two adorable lovebirds. The kitchen is *very* well stocked, and Meg told us to help ourselves to anything in the fridge or pantry. You will also have access to an LG washer and dryer. Meg's house is like a museum, with so many wonderful things to look at. She has collected western and Asian artwork, textiles, and collectibles and you can spend hours looking at all the treasures. The outside of the property is spectacular. There are no neighbors within viewing distances, which affords you a lovely sense of privacy. There is a firepit (which was well stocked) and three outdoor seating areas, including a large, square picnic table. There is also a small manmade pond with a bridge and a stable with two horses which were very friendly and loved to be fed the carrots and hay waiting for them. The house is in the Saguaro National Monument, and the abundance of Saguaro, Ocotillo, Prickly Pear, Barrel, Cholla, and other cacti is really gorgeous. You will see quail, roadrunners, mourning doves, and cactus wren all day long. In fact, the birdsong throughout the day is really beautiful. There are three dogs and two cats on the property, all living outside. They are super friendly and my two children and niece and nephew had a blast spending a ton time with them. If you'd like a secluded, spacious, eclectic, natural, outdoorsy place to stay, this is the one for you!
