This unique House was built in 1977. Inspired by Arcosanti and the vision of Paolo Soleri. It is carved into the earth and built of natural materials and objects found in the area. There is a walkway that leads to the home, a kiva, and patio for outdoor living. Use good judgement and situational awareness at all times due to the uneven surfaces and the rock ledges. Inside the House are many small doorways with low overhangs that you must step over to access the rooms.

The space
This place is probably not for you...   If you are looking for a true hotel experience - keep looking, if the thought of climbing through small doorways inside the home sounds like a challenge - or if you are opposed to living close to nature look elsewhere.   If life on the edge of the mountain with an uneven landscape gives you vertigo stay home.   However if you are looking for a truly unique experience and a chance to stay in a home designed by a brilliant architect ( Paul Nonnast) sounds like a dream come true  - then this is your place and it is for You that I have gone through the effort to make this available to host new friends who share my sense of wanderlust.  

The house is undergoing renovations to further improve your experience. I recently added air conditioning to the bedroom!  The shower is the original and  is currently located in the living room area. To access the restroom you have to leave the main living areas of the house.  The home is not built ADA compliant, pet, or kid friendly. It is dusty in the desert I live off a dirt road a mile from town and the home is entirely made of rock! I have 2 very sweet dogs that will be fenced off from the studio area.
