Chapala Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Chapala neighborhood of Tucson sits at the foot of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Next to the Skyline Country Club, but safely away from the errant drives from its greens, this neighborhood is spacious, well designed, and neighborly. Although listed as town homes, the residences do not represent the typical cramped-together living complex associated with attached units.
Regarding neighborhood boundaries, the main road into the area, East Mission Hill Drive, is the northern border. North Val Dosta Drive is the eastern line, and the southern edge cuts through the desert to meet the end of Skyline Drive. The western edge is the jagged footprint of the rear of the properties.
The scenery of the Chapala neighborhood has the timeless majesty of the Santa Catalina Mountains, as well as the lush vegetation of the Skyline Country Club immediately to the north. The Coronado National Forest and campgrounds are to the east. For shopping, residents can visit the historic Trail Dust Town to the south and the La Encantada Shopping Plaza to the west.
Placed perfectly between the city and the mountains, the Chapala neighborhood is a desert oasis abundant with a combination of green grass, deciduous plants, and indigenous palm trees. The large homes disguise close quarters. They change the perception of a town home community, with back yards large enough for personal pools, private décor, or relaxation and enjoyment.
Set against the mountain backdrop, the absence of public transportation to this gated community creates a feeling of distance from the nearby city of Tucson. The neighborhood’s narrow roads are free of bike lanes but do have sidewalks for residents’ use. The center dividers along the main roadway are dedicated to the natural desert surroundings.
