The space
The Spectacular Suite is one of six AirBnB accommodations at Heaven on Earth Retreat.

Inside a hidden Shangri la, enjoy magical, national park-like views from every window in this exquisite suite located inside a labyrinth of canyons known as the gorgeous Granite Dells. Miles of hiking and bicycling trails with plenty of wildlife. Located in a serene, end-of-the-road private canyon oasis, this masterpiece eco-suite was designed to soothe, warm, awe and relax. Privately situated with views of the pool, seasonal pond, island, and surrounding cliffs, hugged in amidst a jungle-like wildlife sanctuary that borders extensive parklands on three sides with trails, trees and sweeping views of the surrounding cliffs.

Imagine a marbled whirlpool tub in the spacious corner of your bedroom with private, breath-taking views of the rugged verdant canyon cliffs through over-sized windows as you soak with optional jets, the experience enhanced by skylights, a romantic wood stove, cathedral ceilings, marble and hardwood floors not only in your bedroom, but also through this sumptuous suite. In the winter, enjoy the flickering flames of the real wood stove which can be seen from in bed as well as from the oversized bedroom jacuzzi and from the bedroom's solid oak desk. An additional executive desk is in the Great Room.

The awe-inspiring cathedral Great Room features a hardwood loft, built in alcoves for floral bouquets, a full-sized cherry hardwood kitchen with beautiful views framed from every window, plus genuine swirled marble counter tops and elegant marble dining peninsula as well as an additional window side dining table. The Great Room features a 16 foot cathedral ceiling with walls of windows that not only enhance the wilderness views; these windows seem to bring nature's beauty indoors.

Two enchanting and spacious decks with surreal views are enhanced by a comfy double oval lounge for for sunbathing and relaxation, plus lounge chairs, wooden dining tables and several cheery white cast iron dining table & chair sets reminiscent of French cafes. These delightful decks are made exclusively of real wood. The decks are surrounded by flagstone patios and whimsical stone walkways between a beautiful melange of fruit trees, nut trees, and ancient native trees amidst both domestic flower and wild flower gardens.

In the summertime, fruit trees are prolific in this garden of Eden with several varieties of figs, apples, almonds, apricots, blackberries, blueberries, grapes, mulberries, pears, plums, raspberries and walnuts. We welcome you to help yourself. In addition, lilacs, jasmine, penstemon and many other fragrant trees and vines attract hummingbirds and butterflies who are frequent visitors.

The in-ground swimming pool is artfully surrounded by flagstone patios on all sides, plus inspiring views of the pond and verdant canyon lands even from inside the pool. Rather than any unsightly fences, the pool is "enclosed" by magnificent canyon walls. Adjacent to the pool are a seasonal 1/2 acre pond and island. The pond is home to many cattails, birds, nesting ducks and frogs. This elegant home is surrounded by an overstory of giant cottonwoods, plus ponderosa pines, pinyon pines, oaks, willows, ash trees, elders, trees of heaven and elms in addition to the prolific fruit and nut trees.

Enjoy taking a nap or "walking the moon" on the full size trampoline beside the lawn at your own risk. Bicycles, paddle boards and kayaks are available for your enjoyment. Prescott's most celebrated bicycle trail network, the Peavine Trail, is a national scenic trail and just a short hike or bike ride away. It features some of the finest views of this unusual landscape.

This Spectacular Suite is in eco-oriented Heaven on Earth Retreat which is powered by a full solar roof top array that provides most of the electricity. A 2,500 gallon water storage tank supplements the irrigation, passive solar south walls keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter as do the deciduous trees, a greenhouse with a raised bed vegetable garden also serves as an elegant sun room, skylights, sky tubes, soft yellow walls for minimizing a need for lighting, low flow plumbing and LED soft glow lighting throughout enhance the eco-wise ambiance.

Being international travelers, we enjoy welcoming new friends from all around the world. We look forward to offering you the finest service and accommodations!

We, Happy and Free (otherwise known as The Love Troubadours), love to host guests from around the world! As an Adventure Anthropologist, Happy lived abroad for more than a decade thus far, mostly out of a backpack, volunteering wherever she roamed. When not hosting interesting guests, Happy and Free love to travel together in recent years, often in our creational vehicle (our humble RV) both nationally and internationally. Baja California, The Yucatan, Maui, Oregon and Florida are our most common second homes in the winter. We have traveled to about 25 countries, and feel we are just getting started! Free (otherwise known as Johnny Liberty) is the author of several books including the Global Sovereign's Handbook while Happy is the author of Uncivilized Ecstasies, New Zealand's best-selling adventure poetry book and Bliss Conscious Communication, the first in it's field. Both Happy and Free (otherwise known as Johnny Light) enjoy writing songs, playing music and engaging in creative art projects. We are the only guides in Prescott (to our knowledge), calling ourselves the "Granite Dells Guides", specializing in short, fun, easy, affordable excursions in the spectacular wilderness surrounding Heaven on Earth Retreat & Wildlife Sanctuary. Feel free to ask us about guided hiking, bicycling, sailing and windsurfing on 1 - 3 hour custom-tailored adventures for individuals or small groups after you arrive. We finished building our new Cliff Chalet with the Majestic Suite, Sunrise Studio and Sunroom Suite in the summer of 2015 and the spectacular Cave Castle in the winter of 2018. What an adventure! Happy was the General Contractor, designed, painted, and shopped for all the materials and subcontractors while Free was the Project Manager, lead carpenter, mason and electrician. We are wishing to continuously ameliorate the ambiance and quality of experience for our guests; thus, we are always open to constructive suggestions. Most of all, we are at your service, deeply grateful for your future friendship, for your visit and for your consideration! ​ ~ Happy & Free (Forever)

It’s a beautiful place! ~ Brian

A great place to be (in the Dells) and easy to get to surrounding sites. ~ Joseph

This accommodations were really comfortable and inviting. The surrounding is a natural paradise! We spent evenings on the porches looking at the stars. John and Happy were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home before we even arrived. We will come back again. ~ Stephanie

My family and I had a fantastic weekend. The house is one of a kind. It’s so quiet and relaxing there. We absolutely loved it. I would absolutely recommend this place and wouldn’t hesitate to book it again. ~ Matthew

Beautiful and unusual house, quiet secluded area. My AT&T cell did not get reception there. Excellent WI-FI though. Very clean, fresh and comfortable. The spiral staircase inside takes a little getting used to. Can opt to go up regular stairs outside. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, Happy and Free made my family feel welcome when they stopped by too. ~ Dawn

One of the nicest places I have ever visited. Happy & Free have truly created an exceptional environment for a peaceful retreat. ~ Laura Dragon

If you want a quiet, serene escape with excellent views and hiking that’s just a short distance from Prescott, this is an excellent choice. ~ Melia

This is the perfect place. Happy and Free and wonderful, the suite is perfect, the pool is inviting, and the location is A+. Hiking trails out the back. Lakes, beautiful landscape, close to everything you'll need. ~ Jon

Happy and Free are amazing people.The property was better than expected and I felt right at home. Beautiful home, beautiful yard, wonderful hosts.Perfect place to stay and rejuvenate. I will definitely be back. Thanks guys! ~ William

Very nice retreat location. ~ Dan & Julie

Pictures do not do it justice... easily one of my most unique Airbnb experiences!! The house is built into the Dells, with rock outcroppings lining the entire back and side wall. It stays nice and comfortable during the day and the perfect temperature at night! All of the side and rooftop decks were amazing! The pool was a dream:)) can’t wait to return! ~ Ellen

Quite scenic. Lovely hike to the Watson Lake "waterfall". It was actually the damn releasing water, but very picturesque. Comfortable bed, responsive wifi, the pool & hottub were especially nice. ~ Lisa

Beautiful and serene. had an amazing time! ~ Nevena Mia

What an absolutely gorgeous space- both inside and out:). Enjoyed meeting and talking with Happy and Free. They are very knowledgeable about Prescott and places to explore in the area. ~ Terry

This is a Shangra La. I was welcomed upon arrival and shown the elegant space. The garden area is the perfect morning coffee, afternoon respite, evening download spot among the Dells. Fantastic walking hiking area. I would highly recommend Happy and Free. ~ Hilarie

We were lucky enough to stay at this awesome peaceful house for two nights. It left us wanting more! The surrounding nature is very serene and peaceful, we explored the granite rocks literally right outside the door, as well as the many trails surrounding the property. At night we spent our time on the roof stargazing and listening to the night sounds. We took a couple relaxing dips in the hot tub too which was great after our hikes! Downtown Prescott is a short drive away for dinner, shopping, and breweries. We also played disc golf at a brand new course at stunning Watson Lake which is about a 5 minute drive. Happy and John were great hosts that were very easy to get ahold of by email or by phone. They greeted us at checkin and were great with recommendations. This place is very unique and right in the middle of nature! ~ Don

Close to downtown Prescott, a short drive to Jerome, and a day adventure to Sedona. A Shangri-la nestled in against wonderful rock formations. ~ Deborah

With lots of space to spread out and breathtaking surroundings, this is a place to spoil yourself! Easy access to many trails. Quiet and serene. ~ Leisha

Our stay at Happy and John's was too short! Imagine paradise in 3 days! Yoga on the sun drenched deck surrounded by nature.s majestic boulders. Hiking trails and lake right there. Our own green house porch with living plants! Large rooms....many windows, privacy and quiet. Immaculate! We could literally (Website hidden by Airbnb) TV/cell phone. We were met with fresh fruit and vegan treats. Not for city slickers, here, in this natural, pure and quiet sanctuary. ~ Kathleen

If you want a unique living experience try this one among the rocks of Granite Gardens in Prescott. The setting is outdoorsy but very comfortable. We appreciated heaters in every room as the nights were cool. Happy is very accommodating and kind. The breakfast was sparse: bananas and apples, but she gave good recommendations for eating out. Hiking trails began right on their property. It is truly an eco friendly place - very quiet and relaxing. The stars were magnificent! Highly recommend. ~ Mary

This is a beautiful home in a great location. John and Happy were incredibly kind and welcoming. A unique and wonderful getaway. We will definitely come again and would recommend this place to anyone! ~ Kelly

Great find! Would absolutely stay again! ~ Kasey

“The location for this AirBnB is a hidden sanctuary and called Happy And Free Oasis. The tranquility oozes everywhere and allows one to relax. I have been to hotels just before arrival to this place, and am writing this message after spending a night at a hotel right after Happy and Free's house. I slept better in their house than anywhere else in a long time. Upon arrival, the house was spotless (and we thought we left it that way, too), the beds were very comfortable, towels were thick clean white and there was plenty of them. The internet worked great and I did not miss the TV a single bit. Thank you for your hospitality.” ~ Kari from Finland

We originally fell in love with the Granite Dells last spring when visiting for 3 days. Finding your place to stay right in them couldn’t have been any better for us. Thank you so very much for the information re: Prescott and area, the homes and weather, all invaluable for our retirement home search. And of course for all the delicious smoothies! I do regret not swimming the first day we were here, the pool is so inviting. Best wishes to you and John for a wonderfully fulfilling trip in the RV this year.
