Our newest amenity and guest space is The Dog Dish Grotto. The Dog Dish is our new beautiful hot tub nestled in our aromatic desert garden. It has many wonderful and soothing features but its Clear Ray water purification system stands out above and beyond. Our hot tub water is virtually gas free, chemical free or any other by-product free. We just fill it with the dog dish water. JUST KIDDING.

We have had fun designing our grotto, Its secluded just enough to privately relax, revive and rejuvenate. We are excited to share the Dog Dish experience and hope all our guests get a chance to enjoy soaking and sipping surrounded by a mature collection of desert plants while taking in the beauty of our Arizona sky.

With easy access to all highways, this is a diamond in the rough nestled between the Loop 101, SR51 and I17. Thirty minutes from Sky Harbor Airport and downtown Phoenix. We are close to shopping, with easy access to all sporting events.

We recommend renting a car as public transportation is available but not so handy.

We offer nightly, weekly and monthly rates. Save 30% weekly and 50% monthly.

Other things to note
We have two rentals on the same property. This 900 sq ft casita and a 25 ft RV. You might have to coordinate your hot tub time with the other guests. Happy hour (bring your own) at the Shaggy Dog Patio Bar is always fun when all our guests mingle.

Steve and Terri Daugherty are retired professionals. Terri prides herself with a great sense of humor while Steve is the straight man. Steve retired from the computer industry and Terri is a retired accountant. Both being creative and artistic individuals, their home and property, over the past 19 years, has been a work in progress and continues to grow into "the resort" each passing day. Steve continues his computer work, video creation and technical support. He excels in woodworking and can fix just about anything. He has a complete shop "out in the way back" of the property which includes every tool man has ever made. (Terri speaking). On many occasion, Terri will draw something on a napkin, hand it to Steve and say "Here, will you build this?" They compliment each other with their ideas having become a great team. Terri has always had a passion for interior design, cooking and entertaining. She is an artist at heart, painting on just about everything. Her murals and paintings are scattered throughout the house, casita and patio area. Terri has also authored the book "Thanks for the Peas Aunt Node" Its a collection of family comedy stories. Not a novel by any means, just a funny little gift book. She had a dream as a young adult to run a bed and breakfast. Who knew thirty years later, her dream would come true.

During your stay
Steve and I enjoy meeting new people. In fact, we can't seem to get out of our backyard. We are very flexible and enjoy being with you as much as you want us around.

We typically go to bed with the chickens. But, enjoy friends, entertaining and hanging out at our Shaggy Dog patio bar.

Steve is an early riser, and I'm a lazy, ease into my morning (princess) kind of gal on my time off days.

We are retired, but work hard on our place. We have created an atmosphere that just needs to be shared. It's fun for us.
