We booked Desert Sun Sport for 6 weeks last Feb/March. The photos were far lovelier than the reality.
The outdoor pool/patio was beautiful! We spent many many hours sitting outside and enjoying the looks of the pool and the creative landscaping. It was too cool to swim ---and not worth the cost to heat the pool. But we did use the hot tub each day. It would have been helpful to have the intricate instructions to run the HT available or posted. After 2 grill-nights the propane tank was empty and we had to wait for a refill.
The location was a bit farther north and east than we realized, but that was our error. It took a while to get downtown or crosstown. There was an air of wilderness that was appealing in the neighborhood.
The house was a rehab of a foreclosure. I think it could use a second to bring it up to a higher quality. It was clean but minimally furnished with Goodwill and Dollar General items. It was spartan. Even the towels and linens were spartan, with ominous...

Management response:

First of all, thank you for the review. Please know that much of this is not correct--NONE of the furnishings were from the Goodwill-we don't shop there! The beds, dining table/chairs, lounge chairs, outdoor furniture and billiards table were purchased BRAND NEW. The sofa was purchased from a second party, but was in good condition or we wouldn't have bought...

The house was as advertised, with a nice floor plan and not too big. We didn't use the pool, this time as we were out most of the time. The beds were comfortable and the chairs/sofa were deep and comfortable as well. We didn't cook, but did use the kitchen for making lunches and it was great for that. The setting is on the far north-east side of Tucson, so it takes some time to get anywhere, not a problem for my sister and myself as we were back in the area to see if we could still take the summer heat and the humidity after the monsoon rains. I would recommend this place to others that want a quiet place to stay in the Tucson area.
