A very rare unique experience. 'Space is the ultimate luxury.'
About Jonathan Campabello
Hello and welcome to our desert retreat. My husband, John and I having been coming here each winter since 1996 and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We thought that we would like to share this unique retreat with fellow nature lovers and people in need of rejuvenation.
Jonathan Campabello purchased this Cabin in 1996
Why Jonathan Campabello chose Tucson
We fell in love with the privacy of the desert. We had always intended to build a larger home on the property, but, we just couldn't bear the thought of having to tear up any of the natural beauty just to build, so we simply enjoyed the small casita during our winters here.
What makes this Cabin unique
The peace and quiet is amazing. You truly can hear yourself think. The night skies are breathtaking. The air is fresh and clean. The nature touches the deepest part of your heart. The love is here, and it rejuvenates.

It was a experience of a lifetime!
We visited the Casita after the sudden death of my sister. It was the perfect spot for us , amazing sunrises and sunsets, bobcats and coyotes.. Curved billled thrashers ran between my legs and Costa’s Hummingbirds buzzed my ears. Solitude and peace and quiet no tv for thirty days ! Can’t wait to return to the Sagauro and cholla!
It was pleasure sharing the desert with you! Thank you for caring for the desert--The hummingbirds miss you. Take care--Blessings, C&J
A real botanical garden
This property is on a great piece of land with amazing desert vegetation and lots of outdoor seating to enjoy it -- it had a real country feel. Our hosts met us to familiarize us with the property, and left wine and flowers in the casita for us. We are younger, active retirees, so we walked a lot, passing many nearby equestrian properties.
We would definitely come back another time for another visit in the midst of a beautifully designed and kept desert garden.
John and I are so happy you enjoyed your time on the property. Thank you for your kind words and we hope your memories of the desert sustain you till Spring in your homeland.
Chris & John
What a great little hideaway! We live complicated lives with a lot of stress. This place gave us the space to decompress and breathe. Chris and John made it so easy to feel welcome and at home even though we were delayed on our arrival. John, we loved the hand-drawn map to everywhere we needed - it was spot on.
Truly a great hide away, but yet so close to shopping, movies and mountain hiking. Beautiful, peaceful solitude, just what we were looking for. The casita is very clean and comfy. Lots of indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Great little kitchen--they even had organic morning coffee for us. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and felt comfortable immediately with our hosts, Chris and John. The desert was amazing, it did feel like a National Park, but there wasn't any other people about. We heard coyotes and saw rabbits and a deer walked by the front window one morning--it was magical. Thank you for this nature retreat. Looking forward to our next get-away there! Yoshi & Antonio
