About Brian Hoskins
Owner is a retired Naval Officer with more than 35 years of service.
Brian Hoskins purchased this House in 2009
Why Brian Hoskins chose Patagonia
I built this home to retire to once my naval career is over. I've traveled the world and found the Patagonia area offers the people, the culture and the climate that best suit me and my family.
What makes this House unique
The beauty and solitude of this location cannot be overstated. The relaxing quiet, the great views and the gentle breezes that pass over the hillside home each day refresh and rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. A spirited walk across the property will provide you with the opportunity of seeing so much of what southern Arizona has to offer: perhaps a fox or Coos deer will join you at a distance. Finish the day with a relaxing steam bath in the custom-tiled sauna, then relax on the front porch to enjoy a warm sunset. If you linger a little longer, the full moon or some shooting stars will share the view.

An expertly crafted , superbly designed and well appointed house atop an incomparable sight.
We found this exceptional property perfect for any use. As birders we enjoyed the proximity to many species who frequented the feeders around the porch. It is accessible to the charming town of Patagonia yet remote enough to enjoy the sounds of birds and the surrounding views of the mountains along with a parade of stars you feel you reach up and touch. Inside house are all the amenities you could want and a rich display of superb craftsmanship and attention to detail. We would eagerly return to this spot .
Thank you Richard, hope you can return soon.
Beautiful home with great views
We loved every minute of our stay here in December 2016. The house is beautiful, very comfortable with top notch conveniences. Brian greeted us when we arrived and explained how everything worked, even welcomed us with a bottle of red wine. We especially enjoyed the peaceful setting, the gorgeous sunrises, the amazing view from the front porch and all the birds, including two humming birds who put on quite a show. We hope to have the opportunity to stay here again sometime. Thanks Brian.
Gorgeous home, warm & well designed inside with spectacular views outside
We enjoyed this home for a week in December, 2016 and I cannot find one flaw. It is beautiful, tasteful and comfortable. The granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and well stocked kitchen made our visit easy to cook in when we wished and eat out when we wanted. The bedroom separation makes it perfect for two couples. The large flat screen tv with Dish worked great the times we used it. Brian was warm, welcoming and helpful. I texted him with a few questions and he replied quickly. He even had red wine for us to kick off our holiday! The views from this hilltop home were dazzling. Watching the hills and mountains reveal themselves as the fog lifted was a treat. The night sky on clear nights likewise was spectacular. I have stayed in many VRBO's and this is my favorite. Thanks Brian, for warmly sharing this home you clearly had built with vision and love.
Thanks Judy. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you again next year.
Extraordinary views; beautiful home
The rental house is beautiful, and perfect for up to two couples, as the two bedrooms, each with a bathroom, are on opposite sides of the house. The fireplace is perfect for cool evenings and draws perfectly; there was no hint of smoke in the house. The owner, Brian, was very easy to contact and made sure we had everything we needed.
The best thing about the house, though, is the location. About a 10-minute easy drive north of Patagonia, the main porch of the house faces south, and the views are incredible. The house is perched on a hill and you can see for many miles east, south, and west. The sunrises, sunsets, stargazing, and birdwatching are all terrific right at the house. In addition to the resident Say's Phoebe and house finches, we had broad-billed hummingbirds, black-chinned hummingbirds, grey hawks, and vermillion flycatchers right at the house. Views from the bedrooms are great, too.
There are no near neighbors. You can hike right from the house, for birdwatching purposes, and it's less than a half-hour drive to sites for more serious birding and hiking. Madera Canyon is only about an hour away.
I cannot imagine any better place to stay in this part of Arizona. I feel very lucky that we found it, and I hope to return again someday.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon!
This place is amazing! So peaceful and quiet -- gorgeous desert views in every direction. The house is super comfortable, clean, and completely equipped. We enjoyed sunrise breakfasts on the porch. Perfect spot for birders visiting Patagonia-Sonoita Creek and other local attractions. Brian was very responsive and hospitable; he met us at the house and gave us a tour, and encouraged us to call if we needed anything at all (we didn't; he had thought of everything). Would definitely return and recommend to others.
Have posted review in previous write-up. Forgot to click on where we are from, etc. Also note that the property has a nice set up for just relaxing, reading, playing cards and just enjoying a glass of wine. Owner is friendly, helpful upon arrival. Also very understanding.
Our stay was enjoyable...
