About Dino Sakellar
I am a Tucson native and second generation architect. My father designed and built the house in 1961 and this is were my siblings and I grew up. Now that my children are grown and moved out I live and have an architectural studio in the west half of the house with a separate entrance.
Dino Sakellar purchased this Guest House in 1993
Why Dino Sakellar chose Tucson
The home has historic significance to Tucson as a classic example of mid-century modern architecture and the family of architects that has designed many distinguished buildings in the Southwest. The neighborhood has changed little over the last 55 years maintaining its natural Sonoran Desert vegetation and beautiful Westward Look Resort grounds.
What makes this Guest House unique
The home was orientated to take full advantage of the view up Pima Canyon in the Catalina Mountains. The open floor plan and abundant sliding glass doors give the home a light and relaxing atmosphere. The screened porch and covered patios extend living spaces out doors.

We have often seen this house when staying at Westward Look Resort and were thrilled to find out it was being offered through VRBO. We are an architect and interior designer, so we really appreciated the beautiful mid-century design, by Nicholas Sakellar. The view of the Catalina mountains was spectacular. The house is not far from UA and close to restaurants and Whole Foods. The occupant in the other half of the house was quiet and we didn't even know they were there.
Wonderful home a la Frank Lloyd Wright
Fantastic views. Glass walls in DR and LR. Very modern kitchen with 14 foot butcher top island. Dino is a great landlord.
We loved our stay at the property and would definitely return.
The home was beautiful and well-equipped. The views of the mountains were spectacular. Dino was a wonderful host.
Amazing host, amazing house!
A gorgeous property with stunning views of the mountains. The house is a wealth of interesting detail for someone like me who is interested in architecture. It is very spacious with comfortable furniture, lots of books, and a large and workable kitchen. One cannot describe what it's like to sit with your morning coffee or tea and gaze on the mountains. Not only is the host very personable and charming, he is a lot of fun but never intrusive, even though he lives on the property. We have traveled a lot, and this host and this house are the best we've ever encountered.
Mid Century Modern
Beautiful home in a great Tucson location. The home was very clean and comfortable. Very modern kitchen. Outside grounds very well maintained with beautiful mountain views. The owner in on site in this divided house and available if needed.
Great spacious home, beautiful view and wonderful location
We have rented many VRBO's and this is by far at the very top of our list. We stayed here during graduation and it was nice to be out of the busy downtown (due to graduation) and find respite in this home, so we loved the location.
The kitchen is large and extremely well stocked. The home is very comfortable and spacious. The owner was extremely responsive to any issues or concerns. We immediately felt at home due to the owner's welcome, the beautiful setting and comfort in every room.
Windows abound to bring in the light and allow for beautiful views of the mountains. The patio was a favorite hang out space in the late afternoon and evening to watch the colors on the mountains change hour to hour. We used the pool daily as it was warm enough at this time of year and a great size for all to enjoy.
Thank you Dino for making our week of celebration even more fabulous by the use of your incredible home! We would give a rating of 7 stars if it were an option.!
