"Townhouses by the UA Farm"

I had zeroed in on this part of town years ago but had trouble finding a suitable rental property until the housing crisis flooded the rental market, and I moved in with my girlfriend to a townhouse here. Construction is 1980's and the interior varies somewhat between units because of individual ownership. One wall is shared, there is a very small, fenced backyard and a two-car carport out front. You share your sidewalk entryway with your attached neighbor. All units are the same size: 3br/2ba, roughly 1100sf. There's a large master bedroom, a step-down shower in the master bath, a wood burning fireplace in the living room and high ceilings in the living room and master bedroom.
The complex is quiet, mostly populated by older and single people or young, childless couples (like us). There is a complex pool, but we weren't given a key to it.
The neighborhood is great. You're across the road from the UA farm, which means that you can walk out to get great sunsets, great views of the mountains, and even feed the horses in the pastures carrots and apples. Trader Joe's is a 15 minute walk, Safeway the same. The weekly St. Phillip's Plaza farmers market is also a 15 minutes walk.
When we originally moved here, I was working near Foothills Mall while my girlfriend biked into UA for work. The UA shuttle doesn't come this far, but the new Mountain Avenue bike path is practically next to this place. The Rillito Path is also just down the street, and both Roger Road and nearby Limberlost are generally pretty low on traffic and are good to bike on.
Bus service is the #15 on Roger Road, which will take you to UA and the Tucson Mall. The #103, which is an express bus to UA and Downtown, picks up about 1/2 mile away at the corner of Campbell and Allen.
I've had mixed experiences with neighbor friendliness living in Tucson, and this isn't the friendliest place. People will smile and say hi, but no one came up to us when we moved in, and we have seriously never even talked to our direct neighbor, which has just made it awkward (after over 6 months). The HOA is a little nazi too. They have some very specific rules as to what you can put outside your house and how far apart the garbage cans on the road can be. We got a note about leaving our cans out pretty soon after moving in: they can't be out before dusk the night before and must be back in by dusk the day of pickup. The note claimed this was city code (which is BS) but we've since complied with it just to not upset things.
The neighborhood's also a little sketchy. There's a really trashy trailer park pretty much next door and some trashy rentals down Roger and on Campbell. It makes it so that you can't really trust the area to walk alone too far after dark, there have been a couple of tagging instances, and some of the units have bars on the windows. We've had no problems though. I've never seen the cops out and, before we moved in, I did do a crime stats search that didn't come up with much of anything.
Our particular unit has some maintenance issues (issues with leaks in the roof and skylights, a support beam broken in the carport, fence gate broken, loose tiles throughout the house), but it's a rental, so I don't really care, and it's really on a per unit basis.
All in all, I've really enjoyed living here and would recommend to anyone seeking a rental of that size.
