If you are looking for a quiet out of the way place with activities to do, this is it. Close to the Colorado River for fishing, floating and just hanging by the water for the day. Yuma is about an hours drive to jump across the border, which has wonderful Mexican souvenirs and a great restaurant with outdoor seating. If you want to pamper yourself there's a great spa in the downtown section of Yuma, A Healing Touch Day Spa, run by a mother and her daughter which I went to and had an amazing message and facial. Just remember that Yuma is an hour ahead of Cibola when you make your booking.
The wildlife refuge is close by and driving through to see all the birds was great fun. I walked in the desert every morning with my dog and after a rain the flowers began to bloom. It's a beautiful sight to see all the different colours.
The house is amazing. More than what we expected. It has everything in it that you require to have a comfortable stay. The outdoor seating is great in the morning to listen to all the birds singing their individual songs, watch the quails scurry around and occasionally you may see a rabbit.
The beds are extremely comfortable, and the house is very tastefully decorated. We never had a problem with anything during our visit and reaching Laurie was easy with a quick response back.
The yard is fenced in so there's never a worry leaving your dog if you decide to go somewhere. Blythe is close for groceries there is an Albertson's with everything you need, including a fresh meat counter to buy a couple of steak to BBQ when you get back which of course we did.
We highly recommend this great place. We had a wonderful time and will come back again.
Thank you Laurie.
