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.

I had a wonderful time at this unique, artistic getaway on the outskirts of Tucson. The guesthouse was comfortable and the views to the landscape close and far were beautiful. I would definitely come back.

You can't beat the pool and hot tub surrounded by the desert. We saw mule deer, a bobcat, plenty of birds,bunnys and lizards. The property is quiet and th guest house top notch.
