Spacious, new casita provides guests spectacular mountain views from a full living room and two large bedrooms(each has queen beds, full bathrooms, walk-in closets, laundry) and full kitchen. Private entries from each room. Hot tub, heated pool
Our newly constructed hacienda was completed in October of 2015. We are located on a very quiet, secluded street nestled at the base of Mummy Mountain. We have 360 degree views of mountains from our property, almost certain to provide you great wildlife sightings (everything from peach-faced love birds to bobcats.) But relax, our antique wrought iron fencing and 300 year old carved teak entry gates keeps all the critters on the outside of the beautiful brick courtyard where you can enjoy the pool, the hot tub, the comfortable chaises, and the outdoor fireplace.
The casita has three sets of French doors leading out to the pool, so all guests will have their own private entrance, and each queen bedroom has its own private full bath, complete with luxury linens and soft, thick towels for pool and bath areas. The kitchen is complete with dishes, glassware, cookware, a full-sized refrigerator, toaster oven, cooktop, and microwave. There is seating at the kitchen counter or at the drop leaf table in the family room. Two walk-in closets and a laundry room make living easy. The space includes an outdoor charcoal grill.
Paradise Valley is a conveniently located community between Phoenix and Scottsdale, ten minutes from Fashion Square, five minutes from the Camelback Inn, fifteen minutes from the TPC (home of the Phoenix Open), twenty-five minutes from ASU, and twenty minutes from downtown Phoenix.
If you are fond of Mexican antiquities, or just think vintage junk is cool, you will love our home and how we have salvaged iron, wood and stone and incorporated it into our hacienda. We call it "our new old house."
Accès des voyageurs
The casita sits in the west courtyard, where you can enjoy the warm afternoon sun, view breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, and watch Mummy Mountain turn orange as the sun goes down. Our all-tile pool can be heated during the colder months, but we need 24 hours notice to get it warm, and will need to charge an additional $30 per day. The hot tub takes only a couple hours to heat up, no extra charge, but lead time is necessary.
The pool is available only to people who know how to swim, and there is no barrier between the casita and the pool, so I cannot rent to families with young children.
We have a citrus orchard behind the east courtyard, and you are welcome to pick your own grapefruit, oranges, and lemons.
There is ample parking space in our driveway for cars. Wifi is free, of course.

I am always available to offer suggestions for restaurants, hikes, local activities, and directions, but I will certainly respect your preference for privacy. Our home is a retreat for those preferring peace and quiet.
Our limit is four people at a time. No pets. No smoking anywhere on the premises. No parties.
NO SMOKING inside the casita or anywhere where smoke can drift into the casita or the main house.
Please respect our lovely new home, and treat it as if all the furnishings and artwork were your own precious possessions. If you damage or break anything please alert me immediately. I would rather repair than replace.
Please be sure to turn off the fireplace when you are through with it.
I prefer you not prepare any foods with strong odors the kitchen, or leave trash with strong odors in the casita over night. If you put the tied trash bag outside the side door, I will collect it and dispose of it.
There are pool towels in the dressers of each bedroom (turquoise velour), and outdoor hooks where you can hang them to dry. I will launder all the towels.
Beds will be changed once per week, on Thursdays, if you stay longer than a week.
You may come and go as you please, but if you arrive back at the casita after midnight, please be quiet.
