About the property

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

First, if you do want to make enquiries please send to me at as well as through this site which isn't always reliable and pricier. My phone number is 510 381 2900

This is a modern house in center of Historical landmark town. . 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, No cleaning charge, No damage deposit, no pet fee, Cancellation fee very low at anytime after booking($60).

Pay no attention to the VRBO "Response rate" of 50% and response time several days. I always respond to everyone within a few hours. Those low figures are because I have often replied to personal email addresses rather than through the site. In future I'll always do through site to get my numbers up.

Also, you may see a VRBO "warning" at the top of my listing, warning you that I don't take online bookings so you are not covered for problems. "This owner doesn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout. You won't be eligible for our Book with Confidence Guarantee. Learn more"

The reality is that I refund money up to the full amount for problems, my reviews are witness to my honest dealing. I've tried to stop them from putting up this notice, but to no effect.

I am a medical research scientist originally from UK. I work at Children's Hospital Oakland on rare genetic disorders in children and live most of the time in Berkeley California.

cedric shackleton purchased this house in 2008

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.

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!

Perfect House for Bisbee Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is that, a home. Very close to the main streets of Bisbee and perfect base for adventures near and far in southeast AZ. While the home is modern it does have some "old world" charm with the views of Bisbee and using a little imagination of what the original house might have been like. It was fairly chilly during our stay, but the fireplace was easy to use and kept us warm in the evenings.

My husband and I, with our Boston Terrier in tow, came to Bisbee to retrace his grandfather's stories from his childhood. I never really heard of Bisbee (besides from my husband mentioning it here and there) until I looked into taking a trip there. I was blown away by the town and really enjoyed our brief stay to explore. We cannot wait to return.

Yo and Car

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Cedric's home. There is nothing better than 2 great bedrooms with very comfortable beds! This home is perfect for one or two couples, plenty of privacy. Great kitchen and Fireplace. We are coming again when it is cool outside so we can take advantage of the great real wood fireplace.

We will be back🤗?
