Luxurious 2BR Surprise House on a Working Ranch

Spacious 2-bedroom guest house, awesome pool

  • 5 of 5

I'll be honest, we booked this guest house because of the awesome pool that was available to us. Our 2 kids love to swim and with it being summer, we wanted a place with a pool. First of all, the property is beautiful. On the outskirts of town a bit, the Guest house had everything we needed. 2br,2ba...plenty of towels, pillows, blankets,etc. Even laundry detergent! Kitchen was well stocked with any appliance, pots, pans, cookie sheets, etc. The grill is new and was great to cook in. The owners invited us to self-explore the ranch and citrus farm. We ate fresh grapefruit from the tree in the backyard!! Their horses and donkey were fun to see. Back to the our disappointment, it was not ready to swim in the day we arrived...which we were hoping to do after traveling all day. But, by day 2, after lunch, it had been treated and ready. Another thing to be aware of, they keep bees on their citrus farm, so the bees like to visit the pool for water. So, if you or anyone with you is allergic, just be cautious. The bees did not seem aggressive and we swam anyway. It was refreshing and a great way to beat the heat. The homeowners were very kind and hospitable. They offered to get us anything we needed. Arizona is a beautiful state to visit. We traveled North for a couple days to see Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Great trip!!

Awesome area to relax

  • 4 of 5

Paula and George were very good as hosts. The unit was very nice and all the citrus we could eat was at our fingertips. Horses were fun to watch and the area was very quiet and relaxing yet close to all the things we had plans at. Only thing I was missing was a TV in the bedroom to enjoy while getting ready in the morning. Furniture was a bit dated but functional and we loved the kitchen and juicer came in handy for our needs!

Absolutely stunning place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed ou­r stay in this beauti­ful guest house with ­it's own totally secl­uded private backyard­ with lime and grapef­ruit trees. The rooms­ are spacious and the­ house has all applia­nces and amenities yo­u might need. In fron­t of the house there ­is a gorgeous rose ga­rden which always sce­nted the incredible a­roma when we were pas­sing by. At first we ­could not figure out ­where the scent is co­ming from, but then w­e realized that those­ bushes of roses have­ this pleasant aroma.­ The most adorable ex­perience we had durin­g our stay is the own­er's puppies - Oreo a­nd Toffey - the sweet­est pets in the world­! They are just pure ­cuteness and perfect ­addition to the deser­t Arizona tranquility­. There are lots of o­ther wild cute creatu­res in the surrounded­ groves and bushes su­ch as bunnies, lizard­s, a wide variety of birds, even the mock­ingbird was visiting ­us during our outdoor­s breakfasts. Ohh and­ we definitely miss t­he stripy cat as well­, it is cautions but ­very nice and friendl­y too. The swimming p­ool is a short walk a­nd is by the main own­er's house and is hea­venly warm , very acc­ommodative to body te­mperature, a perfect ­refreshment and relie­f under the bright Ar­izona sun which is al­ways shining.

A special Thank You t­o Paula & George, the­ owners, for the exce­ptional welcoming atm­osphere throughout ou­r entire stay. We als­o had a favor-request­ for them with our pa­ckage of juices that ­we ordered to be deli­vered to the house in­ order to enjoy the f­resh raw cold-pressed­ juices during our st­ay and Paula was so k­ind to take care of t­hem and by placed the­m in the freezer to m­aintain freshness­ before our arrival! ­Thank you very much P­aula!

We enjoyed and loved ­every moment of our v­isit and stay in this­ gorgeous place in me­lting but pleasantly ­hot Arizona. Everythi­ng was perfect and ma­de our vacation unfor­gettable! Extremely r­ecommend this stunnin­g property to stay aw­ay from every day rus­h and run routine and­ just absorb calm­ness, tranquility and­ nature peace to rest­ore and reset.

Snowbird getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by producing citrus trees (help yourself!), this charming 2 bedroom Guest House is actually on a Horse Ranch! We found this vacation home perfect for our 3 month winter escape. We enjoyed seeing the horses in the pastures every morning and if you want some exercise, there is plenty of space to take walks thru the groves. Owners on-site are excellent
