Starr Pass Golf Suites Resort Tucson Condo Vacation Rentals

We are no longer offering condo vacation rental weeks at Starr Pass.  Please consider, as an alternative, renting  studio, 1BR, 2BR, or 3BR lodging accommodations at the Worldmark Rancho Vistoso Resort in Oro Valley (NE Tucson).  Worldmark is close to Dove Mountain for the Accenture Match Play Skins golf tournament.  We can often reserve less (or more) than one week at Rancho Vistoso, to customize your stay.

The Starr Pass Golf Suites Resort Tucson offers studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom condo vacation rentals. These are arranged as “lock-off” units, which means the studio and 1 bedroom are side-by-side, have a lockable door, and can either be used together or as separate condos.

If you need a 2BR unit, please rent a studio and a 1BR unit together (there is a lockable connecting door between the studio and 1BR).

We have made renting a week fast, easy, and most importantly, safe! You won’t be reading the numbers off your credit card to some stranger on the phone (who knows where those might end up?). Instead, your payment is handled discretely and securely by PayPal, which is an eBay company. If you are already a PayPal member, you are familiar with the benefits of using PayPal to buy on the Internet.

If you don’t have a PayPal account, that’s alright, you don’t need one! PayPal’s secure system allows you to use any major credit card to make your payment. There is no cost to you for using PayPal, and by using a credit card, your purchase is protected and your peace of mind assured.

So, go ahead, contact us and get your week! We can also get Tucson area lodging accommodations here — check availability or get more information on Worldmark Rancho Vistoso Tucson Oro Valley Arizona here.
