About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The Shackleton home is a modern house in the center of Old Bisbee .The living room has high ceiling and real wood-burning fireplace. Beautiful patio accessed from living room through 12' opening bi-fold doors.The two bedrooms have French doors opening to the patio so when everything is open, outside and inside seem to merge. Bedrooms and bathrooms are in two separate wings of house that affords extra privacy when two couples are staying. The view from the patio is towards downtown and looks directly at the mountains, particularly the iconic 'B' mountain which is straight ahead. Downtown is a 5min walk, max. There are about 12 gentle wide steps to the property. There is off street parking for two compact cars.

The house is built of Rastra and the walls are 11' thick which offers good insulation; AC in one bedroom only. Each bedroom has its own bathroom close by.

The town has good restaurants and bars in short walking distance from house in both directions, about 200 yards, 5 min walk. Two food stores, Mimosa's and High Desert Market just a few minutes walk away.

House particularly affordable because only extra charge is State Tax, no Homeaway booking fee if you book through me (search for me), No cleaning charge, No damage deposit, no pet fee, Cancellation fee very low at anytime after booking($60).

Why cedric shackleton chose Tucson & Southern Arizona

I've had vacation homes in this town for 35 years and love it because of it history, weather and physical beauty. The town is nestled in a valley of the Mule mountains. It's a liberal oasis in a generally conservative area

What makes this house unique

Biking, hiking, birding. Hanging out in local restaurants and bars. Enjoy the artist galleries. Bisbee is the friendliest of towns with active social scene.

Wonderful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Very close to downtown, but far enuff away so the music doesn't disturb sleep. Having the bedrooms at either end of the house was great and the bathrooms are so close to each, they are nearly en suites. The patio offered a nice view of the town and mine further out. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Cedric!

Location and Home Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house has by far the best location in Bisbee. Short walk to Brewery Gulch one way and a short walk to Screaming Banshee Pizza and High Desert Market the other direction. You can even go straight out the door and down the Bisbee stairs to hit main street shops. The house was clean, well stocked and had a parking spot (pretty rare in Bisbee). House was perfect and will definitely rent it again for our next Bisbee trip.

Old Bisbee Modern Home is a Gem

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home and location. We appreciate that this is newer home with the flavor and the charm Old Bisbee. The indoor - outdoor arrangement was perfect. Also appreciated the designated parking for this house, a luxury in this town. Thank you Cedric for sharing!
