    Additional Location Information
    Ideally located, our retreat is tucked away in the Sonoran Desert foothills of the Tucson Mountains that flank Tucson's west side, yet it's only 10-minutes from Interstate 10. This provides easy access to the airport and a wealth of tourist attractions in southern Arizona. The house is only 4.3 miles from scenic Gates Pass Road, which quickly takes you to Old Tucson Movie Studios, the Desert Museum, and Saguaro National Park. Grocery stores, post offices, hospitals, theaters, museums, the University of Arizona, Pima Community College, downtown Tucson, Starr Pass Golf Course, the Tucson Mall, and much more lie within a 4-10 mile drive of our desert retreat. Whether your passion is birding or biking, golf or gaming; the arts or astronomy; museums or missions, this is the place to be.
