Welcome to San Ignacio Vistas II on the Web

A Short History of San Ignacio Vistas II (SIV II) and Green Valley

Fairfield Homes began development of the Home Owners Association (HOA) known as San Ignacio Vistas II in the mid-1990ʼs. It is located to the northwest of the intersection of Camino del Sol and Calle Tres in Green Valley, Arizona. All 221 lots are developed, and with few exceptions, all homes are free standing with backyard wall enclosures.

The HOA maintains over 8 acres of common area that is rocked and landscaped with about 150 mesquite trees and several other types. The Sonoran Desert is the model for most of the natural plants that can be found in the common areas.

Green Valley, Arizona has been described by Arizona Highways as the “town too good to die... populated by people who have learned how to live.” It is located on I-19 south of Tucson (seat of Pima County) and north of Nogales (seat of Santa Cruz County). It is part of the original San Ignacio de la Canoa Land Grant from the king of Spain. The community is unincorporated and began in the early 1960ʼs as a retirement destination for East Coast residents. Currently much of Green Valley is age-restricted and is a well respected retirement community.

Green Valley is in the midst of the Sonoran Desert, considered to have the most diverse animal and plant life of any North American desert. The Santa Cruz River runs parallel to I-19 on its east side and further east are the Santa Rita Mountains. It also has had a long history of copper mining and ranching and is home to the largest irrigated pecan grove in the world.
