Interaction with Guests
We are available by text and telephone as necessary. We respect the privacy of our guests and want to insure your comfort.
We are in a dramatic box canyon in the Sonoran Desert, on multiple acres at the edge of the Tucson Mountain Park and Sahuaro National Park West. Sounds of nature in the natural desert where birds, deer, javelina, jackrabbits, coyotes, and bobcats may show up at any time. Our sunsets are wondrous and the quiet welcomes you upon leaving the traffic and city sounds only fifteen minutes away. You will find the night sky extraordinary because there is very minimal light pollution and millions of stars with planets in clear view. Come during the full moon if you can. Unforgettable!
It is necessary to have your own vehicle to get to our place. We are very close to the route for El Tour de Tucson, great mountain biking, hiking, and world-class championship golf courses.
Tucson is a world-class spa city with some of the best body workers on the planet. You can arrange a session at the guest house or their place. We have referrals or you can explore and choose your own.
No smoking in the guest house. Will consider well-behaved pet. Please ask first. Quiet atmosphere and privacy prevail. We appreciate your treating our home the way you would like yours to be treated. We ask that you take all trash and recycling down to the trash cans at the bottom of the drive (ours are in the cubicle at the west end) when you check out. To avoid attracting ants, etc., please empty food trash daily. Thank you kindly.

We love traveling and meeting lively, fascinating people, in addition to experiencing the oceans, islands, great cities, art galleries, wine country, museums, architecture, jazz, and indigenous cultures around the world. Great food, especially Northern Italian, and fine wines are high on our list. We love quiet and privacy where we stay and if it is possible we like to bring our Australian shepherds, Socrates, a 4 year old male, and Lena, 1 year old. Uncluttered, clean, modern, light-filled facilities in a natural setting are our favorites with great views, books, music, and culture near by are our favorite. We love nature, hiking, scuba diving, exploring the wilderness, discovering culture, experiencing beauty, and celebrating life.
It is a joy for us to meet people who love life, art, music, nature, lifelong learning, engaging conversation, preserving the environment, human rights, and traveling also.
We have a beautiful 700 sq.ft. private guesthouse with fireplace, kitchenette, free WIFI, with great biking, hiking, and golf near by. We live in a box canyon in the lush Sonoran Desert with all kinds of wildlife.
