Tennis Ladies

  • 5 of 5

The location of Karen's house was great (about 2 miles) from where we played in the masters tennis tournament. It was very roomy, everyone had no problems getting ready with the 3 baths and the jacuzzi. The late night swims and drinks added to the nice atmosphere. We look forward to coming back next year.

Delightful Doggies and Donnie

  • 5 of 5

I train service dogs for the wounded warriors and several well known hospitals and organizations. We had plenty of room to have our weekend service dog training event and had a huge house to relax in afterwards. The access to the 2 acres in the back allowed us to put up all of our training aids and keep dogs separate through those events. Thanks for serving and allowing us the opportunity to share this special event in Tucson.

Golfing, Swimmming and Fun

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank the owner for opening up her home to us during the fourth. It was golfing, coming back to a huge pool, fireworks and fun. Karen was a great host and shared a lot of her war stories with us. Thanks for serving our country ad becoming our friend.

My wife and I loved the convenience of the Resort's location and to all the places nearby. We played rounds of golf at two nearby courses and enjoyed the fine dining near by. Checking in was very easy and the owner was quite gracious with her tour and answering any questions we had. I really hope we can schedule another visit in the fall before we go visit the grand kids. Thank you again for a really enjoyable stay.

Nogales, AZ


  • 5 of 5

We rated Horsepitality (10 out of 10) for Location, Ammenities and Accomodations. We absolutely loved this house and will make sure to make another reservation on our way home from California. The house was exactly how it looked and was described in the picture. My wife and I watched the sun go down beside the pool each night and enjoyed the beautiful view. All the appliances in the Kitchen worked perfectly, it had all the flatware and utensils available. It was very easy to book and had confirmation within 15 minutes after we booked it on line. We played pool while sipping on beer and then enjoyed the jacuzzi in the Master bedroom. The place was spotless and all rooms had Queen Size beds, internet, WIFI, and hookups for your XBOX and Play Stations. There is a studio bedroom with a private entry directly to pool area which made for some romantic nights and great atmosphere. . Recommended for: Parties, Weddings, Romantic getaway's, Pet and Horse lovers, and Seniors.

We provide a Luxurious Get-A-Way with Horse Facilities for everyone (old and young alike) We have military discounts and plan on expanding our venture to New Mexico and Texas. These expansions include cabins near White Sands, NM and Ft. Bliss, TX. They are to be used for 'Wounded Warriors' just returning from overseas or those that need a little rest and relaxation to assist in their transition back to society. FUTURE PLANS: One Quarter of every dollar will go to the purchase of land plus building cabins, lodges and houses for the purpose of helping our veterans. If you would like to donate, please contact us directly. As an investor, you will see how and where each dollar is applied. Our current expansion will be in New Mexico. Eventually we will have places for as many veterans as we can we help and support from private investors, VA and Federal Government.
