Nestled high in the foothills of the Sonoran Desert on the outskirts of Tucson, this is an award winning architecturally significant house by noted architect, Alex Riley. Desert Moon Retreat has 11 round rooms (inspired by the Hopi Kiva), that combined, make up the shape of a crescent moon. The house focuses on the pool area with its tranquil waterfall and in the distance, city lights and stunning mountain views.
With commanding views of three mountain ranges from the full height windows, it is the perfect getaway for the adventure seekers or for those wanting a peaceful desert experience. Accommodations include two bedrooms (king beds), a full kitchen, breakfast nook, two fireplaces, washer/dryer, two office areas and two uniquely appointed bathrooms. Minutes from downhill skiing or a round of golf, or simply basking in the desert sun by the pool, this property offers a unique vacation experience.
Recent improvements to the landscape include a new pebble tec pool and new landscaping in several areas. With several outdoor seating areas, there are abundant desert botanicals to enjoy surrounding this property. Our guests tell us the photographs don't do it justice!
There is a guest house on site and it shares the pool area and hot tub with this property. If you want privacy you can either rent both or ask us about one of our other houses that are private.
