This is our second vacation rental home which we market exclusively on VRBO. We have met so many nice people from all over the world who have stayed at our other home, and are hoping this new one will be equally popular. My husband and I have lived in the Sonoita/Elgin area for 20 & 30 years respectively and are brokers in a local real estate firm. We enjoy boating, fishing & camping with our three dogs so are happy to create properties which are dog-friendly. My husband is a team roper who participates in local events as well as having been on the Senior Pro Rodeo circuit. We hope you will come out to this wonderful part of the southwest and experience what we have found here.

Karen Howard purchased this house in 2011

The Sonoita/Elgin Valley has remained unspoiled & undeveloped & it's beauty is unsurpassed. With this home's location on 20 acres at the base of the Mustang Mountains & the peak which is locally called 'The Biscuit', the views are amazing. With easy access to the paved Elgin Road & Highway 82, the location is perfect for exploring all that this region has to offer.

This property is a nature-lover's dream with unlimited hiking, biking & riding opportunities just through the private gate. Photographers & birders will absolutely love it. The privacy & mountain & valley views are sure to 're-boot' your soul. When you feel the need for community you can dash into Sonoita or Patagonia for a bottle of wine, groceries, or to visit the restaurants & art galleries. Tucson & Sierra Vista are close at hand as well as Tombstone & Bisbee to round out your southwest adventure.

Wonderful Spring Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to SE Arizona. The weather was beautiful, the stars were amazing and the home was perfect! It had everything we needed and more. There is so much to explore in this part of the state and we didn't have time to see it all. We're already looking forward to returning and will bring friends or family with us. If you want peace and quiet or a home base to explore, this is the perfect VRBO for you!

Incredible views from front and back

  • 5 of 5
Lovely,convenient location for exploring all of Southern Arizona. Great hiking not far from the house. Great kitchen. The best view of spectacular sunrises and sunsets. We had a great time taking photographs right from the property, but there was many more places to explore and photograph not far away.

Sunrise, Sunset and Seclusion

  • 5 of 5
In addition to choosing this rental based on it's location to prime birding areas, I highly rely on reviews. I agree with previous reviewers that it is a lovely place to stay. The amenities are top notch and we could not ask for more. Karen is a pleasure to deal with, she cheerfully and promptly will answer any questions one has.
We enjoyed birding some of our favorite hot spots all of which were within an easy drive. We also visited Paton's house in Patagonia which I highly recommend for you bird lovers.
During our stay we visited a couple of the wineries, which turned out to be quite a treat. We purchased local wine and sipped it as we enjoyed the sunsets at the house.
Star gazing and watching for satellites was fun too. One night we were lucky enough to see the ISS orbiting (a great little app on my phone directed us).
We tried the pizza at Velvet Elvis but found the crust not to our liking, it wasn't crunchy. They did make some delicious potato soup though. Tipped off by one of the winery owners we decided to try Pizzeria Mimosa in Hereford. It was a bit of a trek just for pizza but it was very good. Mostly, we cooked in at the house. Grilling didn't turn out to well for us because of the high winds.
In fact, one night into the morning was extremely windy and cold. Thank goodness for the working fireplace.
It was a wonderful vacation filled with sunrises, sunsets, rest and relaxation. I definitely would return here and rent again given the opportunity.

Owner's Response: We're so happy that you found the stay to be a birding success. It is sort of a "baring of the soul" to put our properties up for rental, so it's especially nice when people are truly pleased. It's great that you were able to enjoy some of the local attractions as well as the prime birding areas. Our region really does have much to see and do if you look below the surface and enjoy the natural beauty, as you seem to have discovered quite nicely. Hope to see you again soon!

Elgin Trip

  • 4 of 5
Nice location. Road is rough. Need patio chairs in front to enjoy evening sun. Good shopping and dining in Sierra Vista 20 miles away. Cold and windy but that's not your fault. Owners are friendly and helpful.

A Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We've been spending at least a couple of weeks in SE Arizona every January for the past 14 years. Over that time we've lodged at a half dozen different places. This place is by far our favorite for many reasons.
The location can't be beat as this is not only a great launching pad to head in every direction but it also comes with great views. We travel with dogs and this is the perfect set up with fenced in rear yard but also private acreage and adjoining BLM for hiking to stretch everybody's legs.

We didn't spend much time there during the day but did have over a dozen species of birds visit the back yard.

The place is well appointed, tidy inside and out and super clean. Bedding and linens top shelf. Everything you need is here, just pick up some food and move in. The bedrooms are large as is the living space. Plenty of room for two couples as you can always find getaway space. We have our reservation for next year! Karen made sure our stay was first class.

Absolute top notch accommodation in a wonderful part of Arizona

  • 5 of 5
We are birding enthusiasts and this is a wonderful location at the nexus of some of the best birding locals in Southeast Arizona. Even though the mercury was dipping well below zero most nights, we were able to attract some local residents right to our litte hideaway with a bit of bird seed.

The actual accommodations are excellent, well maintained, well-appointed and exactly as we expected from the listing.

Birding wise, we had a brilliant visit to the local preserve (Patagonia-Sonoita) and actually say a male Elegant Trogon who sat around for about 15 minutes while we snapped about 50 photographs from every angle. We also caught a slumbering Western Screech Owl there. We were blown away by Whitewater Draw and the cranes and all of the other winter residents. We didn't manage to get the Harris's Hawk that we hoped to see on our hawk trek through Sulphur Valley and neighbouring locales but we sure saw many, many others.

We will definitely visit again. We needed at least 3 or 4 weeks to do the area justice.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing one of our properties for your Arizona getaway - so sorry about the cold snap during your stay. I'm glad you were still able to spot so many great birds.

Come back soon!
