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 space

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!

Guest access

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 is such an oasis. If you like the idea of camping but hate the idea of actually camping..lol,then this is a perfect spot to feel at one with nature and have some great privacy. It gave me the chance to recharge and renew my spirits. Thank you for a great weekend. I will be back and bringing friends

Joan's place is truly magical! The accommodations were very clean and comfy, would have liked to stay another night, but already had reservations in Sedona. If you are looking for an experience not just a room Joan's place is PERFECT!

Such a beautiful and unique place to stay. We loved getting to explore the property, kayak around the pond, and relax in the hammock. The property is off of a dirt road, so we were a little worried about an uber being able to find us. It ended up being no problem at all. We had them pick us up at the front of the property with no trouble. We hope to stay here again sometime soon!

This pond in the woods is amazing! So peaceful and beautiful. The outdoor kitchen feels like you're not even in the city anymore. We stayed at the Cabana but would have preferred the guest house. Note that the cabana does not have windows you can shut and noise carries at night. It was a full moon and we could hear everything from screeching owls, trains, helicopters, to freeway traffic. If you are fine sleeping in the city with the windows open you will LOVE the Cabana.

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!
