We are members of Raintree Resorts which owns this property. Our trip was primarily to attend the Rock, Gem and Mineral shows in Tucson (yes it's over 100 mile drive!), but we also wanted to see the Grand Canyon and enjoy the Phoenix area.
Our unit was in the bldg closest to check in, main level, no garage - but a dedicated parking space. The unit was spacious, spotless and well appointed with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Our patio faced the pool area and every evening there were quail and rabbits that came to feed on the grass. The units are at the end of a business/light industrial area which really has no retail offerings so you will need a car. We loved the fact that there are hiking trails you can access from the property and take advantage of the great park/trail system (and we did some geocaches there too).
Lots of restaurants and shopping just a few minutes drive. No planned activities at this resort, but a nice pool/ hot tub area and the office area had computers to use.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is nearly impossible for anyone who is in any way sensitive to the beauty and grandeur of nature to stand in this special place and not feel the power that the Pimas refer to as the strong medicine of the South Mountain Preserve. Here, we have rediscovered a special place to share with our owners and guests. This is truly a place of deep relaxation and natural beauty. A place gently cradled in the largest regional wilderness park preserve in the country which covers over 50 square miles of pristine Sonoran desert. Surrounded by unspoiled panoramas and teeming with a stunning variety of wildlife that belongs to this desert community, it is seemingly a remote retreat, minutes from downtown Phoenix. ... more less
