Not Of VRBO Quality
There is so much wrong with this offering that I am choosing to highlight only a few items. Please know that I have been in contact with the owner and shared everything that we felt was wrong with her. To begin, the owner is a very nice lady and very appreciative of our feedback. The couple that help her, Kevin and Leslie were wonderful and very helpful. However, this property is not ready for quests. Almost everything that is listed as amenities on her website is inaccurate. There are no amenities in Dragoon; in fact there is nothing in Dragoon. The Golden Rule Winery is a few miles from this property and offers great wine tastings but no food; the owners are super. They grow their own pistachios which are wonderful. The casitas are not ready and there are not two complete kitchens. In fact, the one casita with a kitchen needs to be gutted and redone. About the only thing on the webpage that is real is the picture of the main home and the pond with the waterful in front. Fortunately, my husband took our camping firering or we would not have been able to enjoy the meals we brought. Triangle T Ranch is a couple of miles from this property but it is not a public property. The amenities that she shows on her website are for their quests and their restaurant is only open to the public on Saturday but it is a fun place. There are no restaurants, shopping or grocery stores close to her property. You would have to go to Benson or Wilcox. Basically, this is an old property with a lot of run down structures and junk everywhere. And it is right next to the railroad track and a crossing, so the trains run all day and night and due to regulation, the engineers have to honk their horns 4 times when the make this crossing. We have stayed at several VRBO offerings that were wonderful but we feel that this offering needs to be removed from the VRBO offerings. The owner is refunding our money which we appreciate but if it had not been for the Willcox Wine Festival on Saturday and Sunday, when we arrived on Friday, we would have immediately left.
The property has 2 main buildings that are VRBO ready and has all the amenities.
There is one of the Casitas with the kitchen that we will make some updates & upgrades to so we will do the work needed to meet the standards.
While there are no restaurants in Dragoon there are restaurants in both Benson 14 miles away and Wilcox which is 20 minutes away.
The Triangle T Saloon a couple of miles away serve food for outside guests on Saturday.
The property is very rustic and will appeal to some folks looking for that decor.
While there is the train issue, we have guests who are not bothered by it and we have disclosed it in our description.
Additionally we are awaiting a Quiet Zone establishment in the next couple of months.
