The Desert Moon Retreat Guest House, on the same property as the Desert Moon Retreat, reveals spectacular mountain and desert views, abundant with ancient saguaros. The walled in landscape has been carefully planted with unique desert botanicals. A detached quest house, it faces the pool and contains many amenities, including internet access, flat screen TV with satellite dish, kitchen, full bath and a very comfortable queen size bed. The sitting area has a futon sofa that pulls out to a full size bed and lounge chair with ottoman. A charming outdoor sitting area faces the pool and is great for dining al fresco-a perfect place for morning coffee and wildlife viewing. An outdoor grill is there also. Other sitting areas on the property allow for outdoor enjoyment of the various areas of the property. A citrus grove was planted for guests who might like some fresh orange juice, grapefruit, or perhaps a squeeze of lemon in their tea. Parking is available within close proximity to the guest house and is off street. This is a great place to stay for those interested in hiking the nearby Santa Catalina Mountains, or winter skiing at Mount Lemmon. Bicycle enthusiasts will enjoy the long stretch of nearby Brad Goreman Bike-way or riding up Catalina Highway. It is also perfect for those merely wanting a relaxing getaway. This is a unique desert experience!
Guests share pool and spa area. We do not allow parties of any kind on the property. If you host a party we will ask you to leave immediately and your rental is terminated with no refunds.
