  • This was by far the most exceptional, over-the-top, gorgeous villa. Nancy was so warm and welcoming to us as she showed us all around her beautiful place. She made us feel so at home and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed walks through the sacred garden, sitting by the pool, eating on the veranda, and looking at the stars from the roof-top deck. In the morning Nancy made a delicious, gourmet breakfast. Our only disappointment was that we hadn't planned to stay more days. I highly recommend this place, and hope to come back some day!

  • Listen to this!
    Staying with Nancy on this incredible piece of land, in her amazing home is an experience of a lifetime. Not only is it indescribably beautiful there, it is inspiring to be around all of the creativity and art in the way her home is decorated and shared.
    Nancy is incredibly warm, has a huge heart, and is full of delight about life in general.
    I would recommend staying here for as long as you can, as it sent me home with new ideas, a relaxed sense of being, and feeling that I have a new friend.
    Enjoy it!

    Dear Rose..
    How beautiful!.. You have touched my heart! Thank you for sharing in such a sincere way... I am so happy you enjoyed your time with us, my new friend.
    May we meet again soon and that life unfolds many treasures for you.
    Warm regards,

  • We had a wonderful 3 night stay with Nancy at her amazing location next to the cactus and wildlife outside Tuscon. Only about a 20 minute drive to be in the city, and was great to be in a country setting. We ate fresh fruit and eggs from her chickens, walked her paths, listened to the owl and lots of other birds and sat by the pool (was a little cool to swim). Nancy's place is one of our top picks for our Air BnB experiences!

  • Nancy's ranch is the perfect way to visit the great Sonora Desert awhile visiting Tucson. Nancy was a gracious and considerate host! I will definitely stay there the next time I visit Tucson.

  • We were so grateful to the space in Tucson with Nancy.
    Both my sister and I felt very at home.
    We loved the surroundings and the use of the amenities of the kitchen and outdoor patios.
    Our stay was incredible. We plan on staying with Nancy the next time we are in Tucson.
    Thank you Nancy for creating such a wonderful warm and loving space.

  • Friendly, welcoming and attentive, Nancy is a wonderful host. Breakfasts were very tasty with generous portions. The room was as advertised, a smaller but very comfortable room. The facility overall is lovely, a large rambling house with large common areas, a full kitchen, common deck upstairs and down and a swimming pool. All well tended. 10 acres of desert ranch in an area with unusually populous cactus. Lots of paths on the property and easy to take a mile walk around the neighborhood in several directions and Saguaro National Park is practically next door.

    Nancy and her ranch were a perfect getaway.

  • This haven is a treasure: ten acres of Sonoran desert at the base of the Tucson mountains, end of the road privacy, and a unique rambling house with many places to relax in privacy. Nancy's breakfasts are gourmet, plus the portions were so generous, we skipped lunch 2 of our 3 days. We could stay a week just to look over her many collectibles, photos, and paintings from her travels. Nancy and Deb are busy with their horses and ranch projects, so we often had the roam of the place all to ourselves. And Deb is a massage therapist for any needing back or neck work. We also enjoyed watching them wash their 4 horses. Then there are the birds they feed, cute dogs, baby chicks in a rolling tub--even a Gila monster out in the prickly pear. Overall, our favorite memories of our Tucson visit were mornings and afternoons lazing about her wonderful ranch. Thank you, Nancy and Deb. We hope to see you again next year.

  • What a wonderful place Nancy has! It was so peaceful and relaxing. I just wish we had more time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Nancy is such a great hostess. And the breakfasts are THE BEST. I especially loved the maple flavored sausages. Thank you, Nancy.

  • The views were stunning, room & grounds extremely comfortable, the company always interesting, and Nancy went out of her way to accommodate our preferences while making us feel very at home. It is the only place I'd want to stay around Tucson! Thank you so much, Nancy, for sharing your corner of paradise with us.

  • Nancy is fabulous! Love her... Grounds of ranch are sooo gorgeous. She has put her heart & soul into this beautiful place. It was so restful & soul fulfilling. Nancy & her friends go to great lengths to make sure you have a wonderful breakfast, shared with loads of coffee on the veranda. I am still missing it!
