The Friendly Village of the Catalinas Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located north of the Tucson Mall, The Friendly Village of the Catalinas is situated off East River Road and North Shore Avenue in Tucson. Designed for residents who are 55-plus years of age, the retirement community is a neighborhood of small, well-maintained, modular and mobile homes that sit on diminutive yet nicely manicured lots.
Homes are affordable for seniors, and run, on average, from $40,000 to $70,000 in price. The community is close to fine dining restaurants, Wal-Mart, and upscale shopping at the Tucson Mall. Although modular-styled, homes boast such amenities as shingle roofs, skylights, ceiling fans, Arizona rooms, and nice views of the palm trees that dot the area.
Residents are close to Rillito River Park, where active seniors can enjoy such activities as biking, walking, hiking and bird watching. On super hot days, Village residents can cool off by walking and shopping at the Tucson Mall. Home to such stores as J.C. Penney and Macy’s, locals also can take a break for a bite to eat at restaurants such as Mimi’s Café and the Cheesecake Factory, whose cheesecakes complement a wide array of American cuisine.
In addition, residents of the community are not too far away from the ski area of Mount Lemmon, where they can take the ski lift and enjoy the magnificent landscape any time of year. Residents of the community are never at a loss for finding things to do, as the surrounding stores and sites make it easy for those living in the neighborhood to stay occupied. It’s nice little place for seniors to call home in the foothills of the beautiful Catalinas in the city of Tucson.
