This is my second visit to the Tucson area and my second stay at the Adventure Cabin hosted by Jenn and Robert. I was greeted like a family member when I arrived and once again enjoyed my stay. The Cabin is very comfortable and I will stay there again if I return to Tucson.
Thanks again Jenn and Robert..........Hope to see you again.
Jennifer made us feel very welcome for our 3 night stay at the Adventure Cabin. We especially enjoyed feeling part of the dessert setting from the roof-top porch. It was a good location for exploring Tucson.
Jenn was very welcoming. We chatted only briefly, but she was very thorough about making sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. The cabin was exactly as portrayed on airbnb, and we LOVED it. Jenn and Rob's Tucson property is located far from the center of Tucson proper (Northwest) and was exactly what we were looking for. The property itself is lovely and quiet with lots of beautiful local flora and fauna, and we could have easily stayed for a much longer stretch. The adorable Annie (canine greeter extraordinaire) was a fabulous bonus as well!
This was an amazing experience with coffee sunrises and wine sunsets and full days in between. Pictures are accurate and Jennifer was lovely. If suggest you pick a few food/drink items up en route as once you are there, you will want to settle in for a bit on the rooftop. Great experience and we are planning our return!
Thanks for hosting us at the Sugar Shack! This cozy little dessert cabin was the perfect getaway- peaceful, relaxing and private, yet close enough to the parks and city. We were greeted by their friendly dog, Annie, each morning as we sat outside and enjoyed breakfast. Our favorite part was being able to unwind on the roof deck with some guacamole, chips and cervesa after being out in the desert heat all day. Great place to stay!
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.

About the Host, Jennifer & Robert
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.
