An amazing experience at the Desert Moon Retreat

“ Excellent ”
June 11, 2012
Our 7 night stay at Desert Moon was absolute bliss. From dusk till dawn the landscape never ceased to amaze and the house was a dream in itself. I'll never forget my husbands face as we drove up to the house. He loves the desert and this for him was the vacation rental from heaven! Tucked away at the base of the Catalina Mountains and with giant saguaro cactus all around, we felt like we were the only people in the world. The property is close enough to feel like you are still part of the civilised world when you need to be, but far enough away to immerse yourself in the desert around. We enjoyed lazing by the pool & hot-tub, hiking, walking, star gazing, meeting the neighbours and the wildlife was incredible. Not to mention just enjoying all that the house had to offer. A short drive away took us to great food and shopping. If you are looking for a vacation rental with a difference, with owners who really care that you enjoy your stay, then this is the one for you.

Desert Moon Guest House

“ Excellent ”
March 10, 2012
This wonderful private desert location is well away from the city noise and lights. The grounds surrounding the place are full of so much flora and fauna. The landscaping reflects natural desert. The proprietors were a pleasure to deal with, and full of local knowledge and history. We so enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings under the stars.

One of the best !

“ Excellent ”
November 20, 2014
A very stylish, well equipped and comfortable place to stay. Superb views from the massive picture windows looking towards the mountains and from the terrace outside. Classy modern decor inside empathises with the desert setting. Quiet and peaceful but just a mile or so away from all the food stores etc that you need for self catering. A kitchen where everything works and the knives are sharp. Big beds and efficient showers. Excellent !
