Casa Del Rio Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Casa Del Rio neighborhood in Tucson is located in the northwest section of town in the Santa Catalina foothills. It is bordered by North La Canada Drive on the west and West Roller Coaster Road on the north, and is adjacent to North Oracle Road on the east and West River Road to the south. The houses are faced in tan stucco and boast Southwest-style red-tiled roofs. The private neighborhood, tucked away from major Tucson interstates and thoroughfares, is close to both shopping and dining.
In the spring and summer, the blooms of lantana flowers, poppies, buttercups and desert marigolds paint the neighborhood in splashes of orange and gold, accompanied by the soft purple flowers of ironwood. The hues and shades brighten up the subdued, yet orderly, landscape of the small enclave.
The community is near the Foothills Outlet Mall and the Tucson Mall, and also a short distance from Tohono Chul Park. The almost-50 acre park is made up of nature trails and features a medley of desert flora. It’s a comfortable place to get some exercise and appreciate the environment of the Saguaro Desert.
The neighborhood contains a mix of families, empty-nesters and single people of various ages. Priced from $160,000 to $200,000, the homes in the neatly arranged community are affordable and pleasant retreats close to the best of Tucson.
