Sabino Sands Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Sabino Sands is an exclusive community in the Santa Catalina foothills. Homes are adobe-style and include, on average, 2,500 square feet of living area. Many homes in the neighborhood come with floor-to-wall windows with breathtaking views of the Santa Catalinas and the Tortolita mountain range.
The area is in close proximity to the Coronado National Forest and Sabino Canyon and provides a haven for desert plants and wildlife. Lots are landscaped with saguaro cacti and palo verde trees as well as floral displays of prickly poppy, mariposa lilies, sand verbena and desert marigold. In addition, birders can enjoy watching a number of bird species that make the area their home, including white-winged doves, hummingbirds, American kestrels, gambel’s quail, thrashers, great-horned owls, loggerhead shrikes, and vermillion flycatchers.
The birds roost on saguaro and cholla cacti or one of the many mesquite trees that populate the area. Area residents catch glimpses of coyotes, prairie dogs and rattlers. Lizards also decorate rock landscaping and jack rabbits are sometimes seen dashing across the sandy topography.
Residents of the neighborhood appreciate the natural landscape and the short drive from major conveniences, such as stores and restaurants. It’s one of the reasons this area of Tucson continues to thrive and grow.
