Our stay at Robert and Jennifer's adventure cabin was fabulous and exactly what we were looking for on our honeymoon . It was very private as the cabin was tucked away on a corner of of the property and the views of the stars on the upper deck were something a fairytale could only describe. My wife and I would most definitely recommend this place to any other active couples to stay at as the only neg of the place was climbing the stairs to and from the bed but other than that five stars!
The Cabin was just what I needed to escape the snow from this winter. Jennifer and Robert did a great job of working with my travel arrangements and making sure that the cabin was welcoming. The proximity to the Saguaro National Park offers up easy access to numerous hiking trails.
The upper deck was so welcoming after a long days hike and the perfect way to both start and end the day.
If you're looking for a great place to relax, look no further than this listing.
Beautiful property and great location. We loved the stargazing deck, and all the wildlife. We saw quail, jackrabbit, coyote, and many songbirds from the porch and deck. We also loved our visits from Annie the dog. :) Rob and Jenn were flexible about check-in because of our late arrival time, they left lights on for us & told us where to find the key. They stopped by the following morning for a quick "welcome." Mattress in loft was comfortable. Shower could have been a bit cleaner, but there were more than enough positives to outweigh that. Overall great value, nice hosts who were friendly but unobtrusive, and absolutely breathtaking views of the desert, mountains, and city. We also appreciated the secure feeling of being on a gated property. Thanks, Rob and Jenn!
Jennifer and Robert's property is purely magical! The grounds are gorgeous, and the cabin is cozy and comfortable. Also close to amenities like grocery, coffee shops, etc. and a stone's throw to Saguaro Nat'l Park. It was hard to pull myself away from the deck, soaking up the sun and listening to the many different birds doing their thing and singing their songs. Hope to make it back for a longer stay. Thanks, R and J!
This worked out perfectly. The cabin is quiet and very cozy. I was in town for a couple of days of meetings. I needed an iron and Robert and Jenn left me a much nicer than "hotel" iron and ironing board to use. Also, I arrived very late at night and everything was lit and laid out for me. Perfect experience.
I had a couple of questions during my stay - and they were very fast to respond to a text. Great experience.
An actual address would have been helpful to use with Siri when returning back to the place especially after dark. Robert & Jenn welcoming when we arrived although did not respond to my phone call or text. The grounds are a dream of serenity & beauty. Lots of birdsong & the indigenous and understated landscaping of Arizona. The photos of the place were true to life except for the color - which I wish had really been the gorgeous red in the picture! We would stay on that property again but in one of the other less basic units.

We are entrepreneurs by nature and enjoy the freedom and flexibility that a self directed path can provide. We love to travel and return annually to both Hawaii & Colorado. We had our first date on the island of Kauai and wanted to name our special property to honor our connection to the islands, hence the name Paniolo which means Cowboy in Hawaiian. We also love to landscape, meditate and lend a helping hand. You will see me working on the property tending to the mesquite trees, palo verde and native iron woods or assisting our guests. Robert enjoys cooking on the grill when at home and fly fishing when he is in Colorado. We like social events so a few times a year we will host a fund raiser or have friends over to cook in our authentic Hawaiian imu pit. So grab a Hawaiian shirt and some slippers and come experience the casual elegance of the Paniolo Ranch.
