CABANA AT THE POND Sleeps 2 people + a dog or 2 cozily. This is AN OUT DOOR EXPERIENCE: cozy, screened, open air cabin on stilts w/bathroom below, bamboo blinds, heated queen bed, outrageous view, rope bridge access, + rock steps to private bath below. Seasonal April - Oct. Beautifully cool temps in the shade all summer. Swim and boating everyday. No lock on screen door. Common area: outdoor dining, beach, pond, tree house, lawn +more. Please honor quiet time 10pm to 8am.
The swinging rope bridge to the Cabana is a 2 handed athletic experience, and not for the 'unstable of foot'. We once had a wheel chair guest whose girlfriend carried him across the swinging rope bridge to the cabana, so I will NOT say its not handicap accessible...IF you bring a SHE-WOMAN with you!
Please honor quiet time 10pm-8am!
Guests will have access to all outdoor areas plus the surrounding forests and urban trails. A large outdoor dining area, swimming + boating pond, beach, island, huge lawn and treehouse. Common area may be shared if other guests booked at the 'Guesthouse at the Pond '. For complete guaranteed privacy book the Cabana and the Guesthouse together for your own intimate gathering.
Interaction with guests
The host/hostess live in a cabin about 300 feet away on the property.
Yoga mats and cushions, badmitten, croquet, and other games are available for those who want them.
Other things to note
Cabana is small with a huge 360 degree view! Evenings and mornings in April and October are chilly, and tremendously pleasant the rest of the summer.

This wonder land was inspired by fishing camps in Mexico, tropical islands in Asia, and youth hostels all over the world. I am a retired landscaper who loves plants. I especially like to share my property with those who like to cook and eat outside, play in the water and in boats. I enjoy hosting for local meditation groups, art and yoga retreats, musical events , reunions and occasional weddings. In between events I rent the cabana by the pond, the guesthouse, and occasionally an RV space.
I love seeing people of all ages become childlike as they relax into this little hidden gem of a tropical paradise in Flagstaff!
