Had a great time at the casita.
Nice, quite, and functional.
The place is very private and close enough to shops, restaurants, etc.
Perfect spot to get away, rest, enjoy the beautiful views... Not to mention the clear night sky full of starts. Will be back for sure.
What a great experience we had at the Sugar Shack!!!! Robert and Jennifer were excellent hosts and we loved their dog Annie! The cabin was exactly as described, except for the star-dazing deck....That was beyond words!!! It was an excellent base for our Tucson adventures and we will definitely return if ever in the area again! Aloha Robert and Jenn!!!

A quaint, cozy cabin just as described.
Private and a generally quiet area.
Robert and Jennifer were both gracious and accomodating to myself and my brother.
A very nice refuge from all day activity in the big city.
Able to read, write, play a musical instrument ,converse or pray-meditate without distraction.
Night time sky was beautiful.
Hope to come back as there was a lot to explore and do in the area.
It was my first time using AirBNB and the Sugar Shack was a resounding success. Rob and Jenn were attentive and accessible, but gave us privacy in their beautiful cabin which sits on their gorgeous Paniolo Ranch. Great location just outside Tucson giving spectacular nighttime views of the stars (the stargazing platform is just wonderful) and around the corner from Saguaro National Park. If you want to take in other nearby sites, consider Tombstone (with the O.K. Corral and Boot Hill) or Bisbee (an abandoned Victorian Copper Mine inhabited by a hippee community for almost 40 years).
A relaxing weekend was had by all, and we can't wait to return.
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!

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.
