  • Our 3 nights were quiet and private.....enjoyed watching the stars from the upper deck, and the company of the two horses in the coral in front....Owner was very respectful of our privacy, and willing to help in any way....:)

  • We had a splendid time staying at the Adventure Cabin in Tucson. The views from the deck were amazing the cabin itself is very cosy.

    Jenn & Robert were very welcoming.

  • A really enjoyable stay just outside Tucson but in the country and on a ranch! 10 steps from our veranda were 2 very friendly horses. Our hosts were most accommodating and we would recommend their place most vocally. Robert and Jennifer..thank you.

  • Jennifer and Robert are very gracious hosts. They invited us to their Super Bowl party and made us feel welcome on their ranch. We especially enjoyed the two horses that stay nearby. It was fun to be greeted by them first thing in the morning. Great view from the top deck of Tucson. Feels like you're way out in the country, but restaurants, stores, etc. are a short drive away. Thanks for a pleasant stay!

  • Great hosts and a great place! Robert and Jenn are really nice and easy-going, the place itself is wonderful and clean. I enjoyed the days I spent there and would definitely come back if I want to go to Tucson again.

  • Jennifer and Robert are very lovely hosts, with a lovely ranch and the great Sugar Shack! Staying at the ranch was a great experience that gave us the feeling of being out in the country, but still close to everything that we might want in the city. The Sugar Shack is furnished comfortably, with a great balance of rustic and luxurious. The roof deck is a wonderful place to spend hours watching the sunset and experiencing the desert scenery that you would never get in a hotel. We really enjoyed our stay, thanks so much Jennifer and Robert!

  • What a delightful place!. The location is very private and the grounds around the cabin are like being in a park. It is also very close to Saguaro National Park and the wonderful Tucson/Senora desert museum. The observation deck is a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening while looking at the mountains one direction and and the lights of Tucson in the other. The cabin itself is small but very nicely decorated and has cable tv and wi-fi available for your laptop. I would absolutely stay here again if I revisited Tucson.

  • Yes, take another look at that picture. That's it. Where you want to land and drink in the Milky Way, keep yer feet up on the railing, tilt the chair back and sigh. No need to go anywhere; it's time to relax. This is what you came for - views, amiable hosts & other guests, super friendly farm dog and horses to watch. Talk a walk in the mornings out the back gate into Saguro Nat'l Park, leave your evenings for stargazing. Head into town [20 minutes to the center of], see some sights, stock up on eats and a nice bottle or two of wine, head back out to Ranch, be inspired to write as I was, to sketch and simply soak up some quiet. Robert & Jenn are now friends and my landing in Tucson was absolutely perfect thanks to the welcome home vibe at the Adventure Cabin [or Sugar Shack!]. Cozy, Excellent wifi [streaming no problem], nap on the leather sofa... everything as it should be. They do it right here. I'd definitely return and y'all should come stay!

  • Robert and Jennifer really made us feel cared for while respecting our privacy at all times.
    The observation deck was so great that I didn't even leave the ranch much.
    Five stars to you, guys!

The Paniolo Ranch
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.
