Great memories of both our visit and our wonderful hosts! Very good location for some beautiful hiking & riding trails. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with Jerry and Vonnie!
My husband & I stayed here for several days on Thanksgiving. It was perfect. Jerry & Vonnie were great and helpful. The place was clean, nice and very well decorated. We also enjoyed the peacefulness, relax environments surrounded by sounds of nature. Overall, we had a wonderful time here. We will definitely come again!
We had such a relaxing stay at Casa De Caballo, we didn't want to leave. Jerry and Vonnie are wonderful people and fantastic hosts who always go the extra mile to make their guests comfortable (Vonnie even literally went the extra mile as she walked us out to the beginning of a hiking trail to make sure we could find it ok). The casita was spotless and the fridge was well stocked. We loved how the casita was decorated and it has all the comforts of home, including wi-fi and DirectTV. It was so nice to wander out to visit the horses for a bit, then have breakfast on the patio watching and listening to the birds. We also enjoyed ending the day on the patio listening to the crickets and looking at the stars - it is so quiet and peaceful, yet still close enough to the city to be convenient. We usually like to try new places whenever we travel, but the next time we are in Arizona, we will be coming back here for sure.
Vonnie and Jerry like people and have a world of experience to share. They are the best hosts. Their love and care for animals is apparent. .The casita was spotless, the bed was huge and soooooo comfortable. They stocked the refrigerator with everything needed and more. The place was so relaxing, wonderful views, lots of wildlife and of course, hanging out with the horses was fabulous.. Both Jerry and Vonnie went the extra mile to make my stay special. I had a great vacation and hope to return for a visit in the future. This place is perfect for single travelers, but they just added a cute little room with bunk beds so now it is a wonderful place for families as well.
We stayed 1 night at the ranch with Jerry and Vonnie, but we could have stayed there for a week!
We loved the place and the room they provided is so comfortable, we especially loved the bed and the soft towels...
We went on a hike with the horses: Geronimo, Clutch and Cotton in the mountains, it was so unique... reminded us how beautiful life can be!
Thank you for a great stay and a special thanks to Vonnie, who really made us feel at home and was so kind to us!
If we come back to that States, we'll direct the route to Tuscon... ;-)
After a long drive from our holiday in San Diego we arrived at Casa de Cabello. The hosts welcomed us and escorted us to our casita, the horses curiously glanced our way, and the birds sang us a song.
The casita is a comfortable and well appointed large studio decorated in a ranch theme. We slept amazingly well there once we learnt to close the windows before dawn as the birds set up morning choir practice bright and early.
The hosts Vonnie and Jerry clearly have been in this business awhile as they efficiently created in a very short time an ease, a trust and a sense that we belonged.
We were fairly active while at the ranch and Vonnie and Jerry seemed to anticipate out next request and they would gently recommend an activity, a restaurant, or a hike. They never steered us wrong! And we greatly appreciated their assistance- although a word of caution, Vonnie's maps are not to scale!
Thank you Vonnie and Jerry. Like most of the other reviewers, we stayed only a short time and we regretted that. We without hesitation recommend this AIRBNB location and suggest a longer visit than a weekend. We definitely plan to return for a much longer visit.
We stayed at Casa De Caballo for two weeks in February. It was surprising to find a horse ranch located in the middle of a beautiful suburb! We were so comfortable in the casita and really loved seeing all the wildlife right there on the property -- loads of bunnies, quail and other birds, and of course the horses that live there. Jerry & Vonnie are delightful hosts and very accommodating! They made several good suggestions for activities in the area to match our interests (hiking, etc) and even drove us to one of the locations. There are some good walks and hikes available right from the ranch. We'd love to go back again next year!
Jerry & Vonnie are great hosts! Their place is charming & immaculate, and we loved being out in the quiet country, yet close enough to do things in Tucson. We wish we had more time there - we will be back! Thanks loads, Cynthia & Richard
