Enjoy a newer home (Built in 2008) with farmhouse character! HOA with community park, playground, 40+ hiking trails and family-friendly neighborhood 10-12 min from Interstate-10 exit #275. Community pool & hot tub with park.
Fresh eggs are included with your stay from our backyard chickens!
We love our resident chickens! We have six great backyard chickens that lay fresh eggs everyday and they are a delight to just watch in the backyard. All guests are welcome to interact, pet and hold the chickens. Two small dogs reside here and mingle with the chickens in the backyard so they are very friendly!
We are dog-friendly and baby friendly! You will have the entire guest wing to yourselves in an 1800 sq. ft. home in quiet but large HOA. Come through the front door & the great room of the main home will greet you with views of the sonoran desert in the backyard! To the left of the great room is the guest wing which is gated-off & you can have all to yourself!
Two guest bedrooms, a private bathroom & a private open den/yoga room are included with your stay down the private guest wing of the house which is gated-off from the common area of the home. The open room/den/yoga room/play area is great for a pack n'play (which we have available) or just for doing some peaceful yoga!
We have recently changed one of the guest rooms so that it has a large 8' sofa in it & can sleep someone comfortably if needed. Both guest rooms have a queen size bed in each, so we can accommodate up to 5 adults!
The open den is now available for extra sleeping bags or storing extra suitcases & belongings as well.
HOA has a community park which has a large outdoor pool (not heated in the winter) and a hot tub. The pool & hot tub are closed on Mondays for maintenance. The pool area has some covered areas and lounge chairs. According to recent guests, the hot tub is WARM but not HOT in the winter and is large enough to fit 10+ people comfortably.
The home has a covered outdoor patio with fire pit and large bench in the backyard- great for toasting marshmallows! Hiking trails just off the backyard. The home has private driveway parking for 2-4 vehicles & there is garage parking available for one vehicle, upon request & for short-term stays (less than 3 days).
Kitchen, living room, and eating area make up a large center of the home with large picture windows overlooking the Santa Rita foothills and natural desert!
Fresh eggs available daily by the backyard chicken coop & are complimentary for all guests.
Fresh rosemary shrubs and prickly pears (when in season) are also available!

The CHICKENS: We have 4 chickens who we love dearly. They all are laying currently one egg per day.
Pooches are welcome. Cats might be better left at home- as we have chickens in the backyard & we've had some damage done by previous cats we have hosted. We welcome some other pets as well, just ask! (We've had some canaries, parrots & snakes hosted here!)
Firebowl is in the backyard and everything you need for s'mores will be included in your stay if you just put in a request with the host prior to arrival!

FAQs & Guidelines:
When is Check In?
Check-in is anytime after 2pm. Check-out is noon, but we can be flexible- just ask!
What about those chickens?
Backyard chickens are in a contained area and cannot be let out of the run, due to the many wildlife in the area! The chicken EGGS are edible... the CHICKENS themselves are NOT for consumption!
Fresh chicken eggs are available and up for grabs for guests. You may enter the chicken run at your own discretion but please be aware that "George," our rooster, can be quite assertive towards new visitors and may peck at your ankles when you're not looking- just pick him up- he loves to be held! :)
What are those weird noises we hear in the backyard?
We do have a few Javelinas, Bobcats, coyotes, mountain lions other critters in the area, all are very skittish around humans and do not pose a threat, but must be treated with respect and distance if you're hiking on the trails. They will not bother you if you're in the backyard, which is completely fenced-in & safe. Although, if you suspect some odd creature is coming in the backyard - come back inside! Lol.
What about linens & towels?
All linens and towels must be left at the residence except for towels which may be brought to the community pool & returned when you're done using them.
Don't worry about cleaning any linens- we are happy to do the cleaning after you leave, it does help if we know which ones you DO use so you can leave them on the floor (towels, hand towels, etc)
Community Pool & Hot Tub:
Community HOA pool and hot tub are a 2-3 minute drive down the hill and are accessible for all Air BNB guests except on Mondays (pool is closed for weekly cleaning). There is a map at the front entrance of the home to navigate you to the pool and hot tub.
(The hot tub has jets which can be turned on by cranking the dial-timer counter clockwise - it is just a few feet away from the hot tub and about a foot off the ground- sometimes hard to spot, which is why instructions are here!)
Animals On Property:
Our resident Bichon Frises are VERY non-harmful and do not bite. They may bark when you first arrive because they are sooo excited you're here! They like to jump up to be pat on their tiny heads- but will not knock you over. Their favorite treats are baby carrots. They are both non-shedding dogs & live at the residence most of the time (when they aren't traveling) and may be contained to the main part of home if you wish. This way the pooches won't disturb the guest wing or any of your belongings.
