The bedroom has a very comfortable and sturdy queen sized bed with closet space and clothing storage. The bath room has shower and bath tub with fluffy fresh towels and a hair dryer (so you don't have to pack one). Most importantly, this place is very, very clean and comfortable.

These accommodations are very private, located on the main property but 150 feet from the main house with a workshop and small garden/orchard in between. This is a pet friendly place and has a fenced yard if you have a canine(s)/ feline who is coming along. We have lots of trees and wildlife that frequent our yard. Hummingbirds are normal every day of the week in our flower gardens and around our trees.
The neighbor hood consists of single family homes on 1 - 2 acre lots with a view of the Huachucas to the west, the Mule mountains of Bisbee to the south and the Dragoons and Tombstone Hills to the east. There are no street lights here which makes star gazing at night fabulous.
Ramsey Canyon and Huachuca Mountains are within biking and hiking distance. The Ramsey Canyon Preserve (Hummingbird Capital of the World) is located 3 miles from this location. The Huachuca Mountains are unique in being one of the Sky Islands of Southern Arizona that host the 2nd highest diversity of mammals in the world! It is common to see bears, deer, racoons, skunks, coti-mundi, ring-tailed cats and of course more than 14 species of hummingbirds! The Ramsey Canyon Preserve says "The native plant gardens and feeders at this Nature Conservancy sanctuary have attracted 14 species of hummingbirds, including the Magnificent, Berylline, and White-eared. Most birders can double or triple their hummer life list without ever moving from one of the preserve’s benches!" We see much the same in and around our own yard. Last spring a set of Red Tailed hawks nested in our Pine Trees. Tombstone, Bisbee, Douglas, The Coronado National Monument and The Chiricahua National Monument are within scant drives. Easy day trips to Sonoita and Patagonia vineyards are also in reach.
We will provide cold breakfast items, coffee, tea, cereal and small breakfast foods. You will have a full sized refrigerator (with ice maker), and completely utensil stocked kitchen with dishes, and anything else you may need to prepare your own meals.
This place is very quiet and a great place to be alone, in fact a great place for privacy and intimacy. This is a great place to stay a month, week or a night as it has all the comforts of home away from home. We are flexible about check in and check out and anything else you might need.
Smoking on the Patio and Porch is perfectly acceptable, ash trays provided on both. Wash your own dishes if preparing your own meals. Extra sheets and towels in the bathroom linen closet, if needed, Place used towels and sheets in laundry basket in bathroom. If you cannot light the stove, come get one of us for help.

We will give you the wireless code when you arrive.
There is a cleaning fee for those staying more than 3 nights or guests with pets. Don't forget that airbnb will charge both host fees and guest fees, so your total will be more than what is listed. The security deposit is refundable to you by airbnb after your stay if there was no damages.

I've had a wonderful stay at Arizona Sky! My hosts made me feel so welcome, it's been like visiting good friends. The accommodation is very private, and the neighborhood is quiet, although everyone I met took the time to say hello. There is a beautiful mountain range to the west, and I've had some lovely walks in the area.
Joann and Stuart were great hosts. They were there to greet us just as we arrived and gave us a tour of their guest house. Both were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Even in the days prior to our stay, our communication with them always made us feel that they would be as helpful as they could be and as much as we wanted them to be.
We really enjoyed our stay at Joann & Stuart's vacation home, we enjoyed it so much that we booked it for our vacation next year. Our hosts were great, close by to answer any questions we may have & we enjoyed getting information about the area. We really enjoyed our privacy & sitting on the the back patio & listening to the birds. Joann & Stuart have a beautiful friendly dog & cats that would stop by for a little visit & treat. The house was full of everything we needed & so nicely decorated. We can't wait to return next year, it was definitely our home away from home.....Ruth & Lenny...2015
Our hosts were friendly and available to meet our needs. We were given a thorough tour of the property when we arrived. The listing description was accurate as far as the space was concerned. Of note, was the spectactular mountain views which had to be seen to be believed. The neighborhood was very nice. We will definitely be back. Karon and Stan Rzad (phone number hidden).
Joan and Stewart were excellent hosts they were very accommodating to our timeframe and allowed us the freedom to relax and enjoy the beautiful accommodations they had provided this air B&B goes the extra mile and what is available when you stay there the Quaint one room apartment had all the amenities anyone would need and more. Location is peaceful quiet and stunning with two porches to relax on a very soft and comfy bed top-quality linens but even left food for us and sundries in the kitchen I hope I will have the opportunityto stay there in the future I highly recommend this accommodation for the area
The house we stayed in was very comfortable and very clean, had all accessories that one has at his/her own house, all the little things. Very quiet, peaceful and totally safe.
Canyons were right behind the area, within a couple of miles. It's just like having mountains in your own backyard. For flat-landers like us, it was REALLY great!
Short drives to local restaurants and super market.
It was a great base for us to see local sights: Bisbee, Tombstone, Fort Huachuca, etc.
For us serious cyclists, it was a wonderful place to visit. The whole trip was wonderful.
Thank you, Joann & Stu!
