Description from owner


We welcome you to experience desert living in the Tucson Mountains. Located within the prestigious Starr Pass Community near the JW Marriott Resort, Casa Serenita is surrounded by gorgeous desert nature trails, the world class Arnold Palmer golf course and an abundance of wildlife. It's not uncommon to see javalinas, coyotes and quail meander through the grounds as you relax on the patio! Casa Serenita is located on the first floor, so there are no stairs to climb. It's perfect for guests who want easy access to parking and it's just a few steps from a sparkling pool, tennis courts and gym. Conveniently located just minutes from restaurants, shopping, Downtown, the University of Arizona, UMC, and 20 minutes away from the Tucson International Airport. For a truly magical morning hike nearby, head up to the Lorraine Lee nature trail at the mouth of the JW Marriott Resort, where we've spotted deer, javalinas and bobcats. In the evening, unwind with cocktails, music and breathtaking panoramic desert and city light views on the patio of the JW Marriott. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is comfortably furnished. The master has a romantic king sized iron canopy bed. The second room is furnished with a double bed. There are HD flat screen television's with premium cable in the Living Room and bedrooms and all the amenities to comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests. Dishes, Linens, Cable, all Utilities and a Full Size Washer and Dryer, and Hi Speed Wireless Internet for our Guests.
