Casas Esplendora Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Casas Esplendora means “houses of splendor” in the Spanish language, and the homes tucked in the Catalina Foothills, Casa Esplendora Neighborhood have a glorious view of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The mountains seem close enough to touch as the neighborhood rests on one of the many rises of the foothills, giving it a view, unique to the other homes the area.
The Casas Esplendora Neighborhood borders are North Cam Esplendora to the west, with the remaining sides closed by walls. The distant cross streets of North Swan Road and East Sunset Drive gradually sink to the south leaving their hustle and bustle out of the winding neighborhood streets, yet still close enough for easy access.
This neighborhood is a stealthy hub of activities in the area, at the south end of North Cam Esplendora is the Bel Air Shopping Plaza, with the Oracle Shopping Plaza and the Tucson Mall further to the west. The Skyline Country Club is just north along North Swan Road, right before the Catalina State Park boundary begins and wraps around to the east.
The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet thanks to the smartly placed, wide strips of natural desert that provide privacy for the residents. While the community is listed as townhouses, the homes are hardly typical. The well-maintained Territorial Style homes built in the mid 1970s share a community pool. Pedestrians and cyclists safely share the road with vehicles through the neighborhood, until the major roadways.
The Casas Esplendora Neighborhood is in the 87518 zip code in the heart of the Catalina Foothills. While hardly a rural area, the desert landscaping can be deceiving, yet the shops are less then a half mile away, although there is scant public transportation with the Sun Tran Bus Line only hosting the 105-X route along East Sunrise Drive.
