“The place to be in Arizona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This place is clean and quiet. The place to be on vacation in Arizona. Close to nice golfs as Vistoso itself, Dove Mountain, The Gallery, The Highland, Ventana Canyon, Tucson National, etc. 520-544-0909 is the number to rent those condos. 246 and 162 are the best units.

Room Tip: 520-544-0909 is the number to rent those condos. 246 and 162 are the best units

We had a wonderful experience in Vistosos Resort Casitas. We stayed in the 655 units and they are quiet with beautiful views of the golf course and the Catalina's. We were able to enjoy morning coffee on the deck for sunrise over the Catalina views, and a glass of wine to enjoy the breathtaking sunset views. WOW! Simply stunning. It was close to many many amazing restaurants, yet secluded enough for the getaway we were looking for. The condo was beautiful decorated, gorgeous furniture and perfectly stocked with every amenity we could need or ask for. Being from the North I spent as much time as possible at the pool. Perfectly maintained, water temp was just right and the hot tub is great when wanting to soak away the stress. This is a "must" do for us every year and we will always be staying at Vistoso Golf Casitas.

Stayed here for a week and golfed at Vistoso twcie. Beautiful 3 bedroom condo with all the amenities you need. Very nice pool area with a hot tub.

Vistoso golf club was beautiful. Also golfed a Dove Mountain(an 11 out of 10) and golf at Arizona National. Arizona National was terrible. They stopped watering their fairways and it was like hitting off concrete. A big waste of money on what I'm sure would be a great course if it was watered.

We had a wonderful experience. The condo was updated with ample furniture inside and on the patio. Great views of the #17 hole at Vistoso and it faces west for spectacular sunsets....used Golfnow. com for tee times and got great rates.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a view of the sunsets....

Our unit was quiet, comfortable, clean and well-maintained. All units are independently owned and it'd probably best to view photos of the units in advance as well as ask any questions if you have particular needs. The pool and hot tub were heated just right and not too crowded. All three times I met some nice people at the pool. Close to everything. Felt very safe there. Look forward to going back soon.

If you are only looking for a place with a view, somewhere to sleep, take a shower, have a cold beer, a toilet available, a light breakfast and eat at restaurants all the time, then you won't be disappointed.

However, if you are looking for a 'home' environment in a well maintained and modern dwelling, where you can enjoy a well-appointed kitchen and comfortable 'live-in' condominium, then this is not the place for you. Understand of course, that these units are privately owned with a property manager, where the owner is responsible for the interior furnishings, appointments, quality and condition, while the property manager is the client liaison and renter.

Although the setting is pleasant, we were clearly disappointed in the condo we had. We have rented condos, cottages and houses all over North America and Europe, including another house in Tucson on this trip. This condo is at or near the bottom of our ranking of all places we have stayed. A few observations:
- although the kitchen is large and filled with cupboards, the cupboards are bare of many essential kitchen tools and resources necessary to prepare basic meals, eg. no cooking bowls, no mixing bowls, not even a salad bowl. It looks nice in the picture, but it is basically an empty shell
- two of the electric elements on the stove did not function
- beds are comfortable, that is good; but they are covered with blankets and bedspreads that could have been in my grandmother's house
- does anyone remember shag carpets from the 70's and 80's? Well then you'll enjoy the white shag carpet throughout the condo, including the master bathroom. Makes for a dusty environment everywhere
- some of the blinds across the front of the condo were missing vanes or could not be adjusted; ie they were open or closed in a 'stuck' position
- several burned out light bulbs
- the place is in need of a good cleaning and repainting; numerous places where there is accumulated dirt, cracks and general dirt and grime around the place. Dust accumulation is evident in several places.
- furnishings and decorations are out-of-date; clearly well-worn and shabby
- a condo that sleeps 6-8 people, but only has a table for 4 persons; that is a problem when one wants to have a nice dinner for 6! The table is too small and there are no other chairs available even if one wanted to attempt to crowd a group around the table.
- there is no DVD player available in the primary living space...!
- insufficient cutlery in the kitchen drawers - probably setting for 5 people of the least expensive, low quality, imported stainless steel cutlery that is available on the planet is in the drawers
- tiny balcony - standing room only for 3 people...no chairs, cannot see over the 4 foot wall...that was disappointing.
- property manager is somewhat casual in dealings with clients, 'laissez-faire' as the French would say. Hard to get hold of, doesn't respond to messages and communications; doesn't seem to follow through and lets things hang or does not provide important information for the renter. Not the kind of interaction one is accustomed to having in a business relationship.

Overall, we are very disappointed in this property; it is shabby, poorly equipped and poorly maintained, perhaps where the owner is more interested in the one-time rental revenue from renters such as ourselves. We will not return to this property. We do not recommend this property.

We were totally surprised at the amenities, size of Condo, and cleanliness.

This was our first time staying at the Vistoso Casitas and we're looking forward to coming back. Unit provided 2 very large master suites. Nice location overlooking the pool/spa. The unit was squeeky clean and the kitchen had all the necessary utensils and lots of coffee.

The location is nicely hidden from the main stream, but within a couple of minutes of all major shopping and convience.

Bobby, the service Mgr. was always friendly, and professional. The cost was way more affordable then staying at a Hotel. We felt at home. It was a very pleasant stay. We're looking forward to coming back.
