Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Located at Arcosanti, an urban design experiment started in 1970 by Italian-American architect Paolo Soleri, this beautiful and open accommodation is perfect for a weekend get-away or a peaceful stop-over roadtrippers, couples, solo adventurers, and families. Take in the high desert views while enjoying the architecture and mid-century modern decor. This open concept rental is furnished with a queen bed, sofa, and kitchenette.

The space
The Sun Suite is the custom built studio for founder and Arcosanti visionary, Paolo Soleri. It still has the original 16 foot drafting table used by the Italian architect. Gorgeous views all around and modest in size, this studio is a wonderful example of how Soleri believed we should live.

Guest access
Overnight guests at Arcosanti have full access to all public spaces on site. The seasonal pool, cafe (check seasonal hours), community room and kitchen, library, gym, hiking trails, wifi, music room, and architectural features are available for your exploration. You are only restricted from private areas such as residents' homes and construction areas.

CAFÉ HOURS:
The Arcosanti Cafe' is closed for the Summer. Please plan to use the kitchenette accordingly, or visit The 50's Diner, Bar, and Grill in nearby Cordes Lakes.



Summer note: There is a small AC unit in the room but expect temperatures to be about 15 degrees cooler than outside. Fans help to move the air around. Open all doors and windows at night (with AC off) then close it all up in the morning

Other things to note
Check out our website/visit/events for Event calendar. Special events usually require an additional ticket purchased through the website or gallery onsite. Event dinners are typically $20. Ask your host for details if there is a scheduled event during your stay. There are many of opportunities for fun and relaxation at Arcosanti. We highly recommend taking a guided tour early in your visit. Tours start in the gallery, which opens at 9am. Take a hike, a dip in the pool (open seasonally), play one of our pianos, participate in community events, eat and drink in the Cafe, explore the interesting architecture, or simply socialize with our residents at the ArcoMart pub while watching the sunset from the Vaults.

Mayer, Arizona, United States

Arcosanti is a one of a kind community built on the principles of Arcology...multi-use spaces, frugality, and architecture interacting in harmony with the natural landscape. Framed by incredible canyon views, the "city" (as we like the call it) is a network of apses, vaults, performance spaces, and residences. We have a bronze casting foundry, a ceramics production area, a cafe on site, a 500-person amphitheater, a pool, and myriad other functional structures. We are home to approximately 70 residents who live and work here. Most of us have interests in urban planning, sustainability, and architecture, but Arcosanti attracts a huge diversity of expertise and skill sets. Be advised that Arcosanti is an active construction site.
Sedona and Prescott, Phoenix and Flagstaff are about an hour away. We are about 2 and a half hours to the Grand Canyon.

I am a resident at Arcosanti, an urban laboratory and community in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. We rent a variety of different accommodations and have recently started listing some of our spaces on AirBnB! I love living here because I have access to all of the collective resources we share (beautiful natural surroundings, pool, interesting architecture, easy access to my work, and an engaged community). It is a very innovative community and being here allows me the freedom to explore projects and skills I wouldn't have access to elsewhere. We have a team to support your stay so it is enjoyable! If you want to learn more about Arcosanti, or see our rentable spaces not listed here, please visit us online.
