Private cozy casita nestled on secluded desert property; 5 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Casita opens onto private patio in a large walled pool oasis. Across the road is a desert lake park, Salt River Canal and Papago Park Trails for miles of walking, running, mountain biking or hiking. On Tempe/Scottsdale/Phoenix border; within 4 miles of A.S.U./Tempe Town Lake/Mill Ave, Phoenix Zoo, Sonoran Desert Botanical Gardens, Old Town Scottsdale. Walk to Starbuck’s in .6 miles.

The space
We are located in a quiet pocket of pristine Sonoran desert, but uniquely located in close proximity to all that Tempe, Scottsdale and Phoenix have to offer. The property borders the 1,500 acre Papago Park. You may be fortunate to encounter roadrunners, jackrabbits, cottontails, coyotes and the occasional javelina while being surrounded by saguaro, chaparral and many other native cacti and plants. From the property, during the evening you can view big horn sheep on top of the Phoenix Zoo Buttes. You won't want to miss the spectacular sunrise or sunset for which Arizona is so famous.

Guest access
You will have full access to the pool patio and BBQ courtyard and Fire pit. You are also welcome to enjoy breakfast, lunch or happy hour al fresco. We also have two bicycles with helmets and locks. You are welcome to use them anytime you like!
