Pros: So glad to have discovered Casa Tierra Adobe and the solitude and beauty of the Sonoran desert. Our stay was quite lovely as our host has given such great attention to the details that make travelers comfortable and welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Tucson area (all within reasonable driving distance: Mt. Lemmon, Tucson Botanical Gardens, Pima Air Museum, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Tucson Fossil, Gem, and Mineral Show), but loved coming back to Casa Tierra at the end of the day, to converse with the other guests and enjoy this little piece of desert heaven. You will want to add an additional day to your trip to just chill and spend time at Casa Tierra, something we did not do this time, but will certainly plan for when we return!
Pros: It's nice to stay just outside the city and enjoy the beautiful desert. Very comfortable and the host Dave is a super nice guy. You might think you made a mistake as you drive out of the city, but it really doesn't take long to get there! Worth it!
Quintessential Desert Experience!
Pros: I loved our personal patio with the clay,chimera stove, which was vented up and over the top of the patio covering. Also, there was a large hot tube for guests to use. My husband and I jumped into the hot tube just after sunset and watched the stars come out at night. Also, Casa Tierra Adobe is built in true hacienda style, which I love. There is a courtyard in the center with a fountain and some lovely flowering plants. This courtyard is surrounded on 3 (or 2 1/2 sides) by a covered walkway, which is very wide(8 - 10 feet) and has room for comfy chairs, tables and book shelves full of interesting books and magazines and lovely southwestern decorations. There were 2 doors to our room. One door entered onto the inner hacienda courtyard and the other onto the outside, personal, patio. There is a common room which has a couches, computer, tv and two sides of the room are glassed in and overlook the desert--just beautiful. Dave is an excellent host.
Cons: I would have planned our trip to have fewer excursions. My husband and I both agreed that we should have planned to stay another night. We only stayed 2 nights.
Awesome place to celebrate a...
Pros: The breakfast we had was outstanding. We were served by Dave the Owner. He made Polenta with a wonderful red sauce. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Dave made it very special with a nice bottle of sparkling wine and a chocolate rose on our bed. It was a cozy and comfortable place to stay.
This little B&B was so quaint. It was located in the Sonoran Desert, so there were many birds and magnificent cactus everywhere.
