Bisbee is a quaint little western town, and an unusual little town at that. And so is Above & Beyond Rentals. Its very colorful, filled with the owner's original art and personal collectables. It is a curious blend of comfort & unique decor, with all the needed amenities that bring our guests back time and time again.

You can close the front door and stroll for only 5 minutes to arrive at the 'High Desert Market' for fresh pastries and coffee or for pizza and delicious salad across the road at 'Screaming Banchee'. Another 5 minute's walk takes you to the heart of our unique, artsy historic town. There are many artisan shops along Main Street and neighboring alleys that feature nationally renown artists. You can dine at Arizona's finest restaurants or even at our elegantly restored historic hotels.

There are interesting tours available. You can start with a historic walking tour. Michael London, Bisbee archivist and historian extraordinaire, is now available for walking tours. Experience a journey into the past while touring the streets and avenues of historic Bisbee. Or what about the Old Bisbee Ghost Tour that is the only one of its kind? Your Ghost Host leads you on a walking tour through Old Bisbee's streets, stairways, and old alleys after dark on an adventure to discover and learn about the ghosts that haunt this hundred twenty five year old town. Learn their history and favorite haunts while seeing Old Bisbee when very few do, after sunset.

Take a Lavendar Jeep Tour. There are 7 tours options. One of the tours, Sky Island Adventure, takes two hours. You actually rise to 7,400 feet. Another featured tour, The Back Roads of Bisbee, is a 90 minute tour on the narrow, twisting back roads. The Mining Landscape Tour is a complete comprehensive tour of the Warren Mining District (Bisbee). You can also visit the Bisbee copper mine, once the largest in the U.S. And wherever you go, you're sure to encounter the colorful characters who call Bisbee their home.

Just recently a new Ghost Towns Tour became available. You experience the real neighboring town of Tombstone going beyond the 20 second gunfight. You visit quieter ghosts lying lonely in the desert. You’ll see the old hospital, general store, school and jail in the copper camp Gleeson where Native Americans mined turquoise in antiquity. You visit Rattlesnake, home to all things found in the desert and finally move on to Courtland and Pearce along the Ghost Town Trail.

Consider using Above & Beyond Rentals as your base while you explore the Southwest desert or hike to the tops of nearby mountains or even recoup from a long distance bike ride. There are state parks within 30 minutes of town. Take a tour of the spectacular Karchner caverns. Birders love to watch the sand hill cranes swoop down to feed in a local lagoon.

About Pamela

I emigrated from South Africa to the USA in 1978. I have lived in San Diego all this time. I am an acupuncturist and psychologist by profession. I come to Bisbee on a regular basis and volunteer my time at the free clinic offered by the Wellness Initiative in Bisbee as well as the Women's Shelter.

I conduct personal classes, seminars and retreats in Bisbee. I focus a lot educating groups about alternative approaches to medicine like acupuncture, homeopathy and nutrition as well as mini stress management workshops. Let me know if you have an interested group and we can tailor a workshop around your needs.

Pamela purchased this house in 2007

Why Pamela chose Arizona

I am truly grateful to my friend, Buckley, who pointed me in the direction of Bisbee just months before his untimely death in 2007. I was amazed to find how much I loved being in Bisbee every time I visited. Bisbee has a charm of its own. This historical mining town is a friendly and liberal community. It offers a wide variety of pleasures - everything from great hiking & fine dining to old-west saloons, mining history, Victorian architecture and world-class birding opportunities. There are a ton of trails both east and west of Bisbee maintained by the National Park Service

What makes this house unique

My home is spacious and so centrally situated! Its an easy walk to town, right on the main road, easily accessible with no stairs to climb. There is parking right outside and a fabulous, large deck tucked away behind the front house - ideal for quiet evenings at home, or private outdoor entertaining.

The home is also ideal to serve the needs of:

- 3-generation family get away, with outdoor privacy & room for everyone.

- Private venue for spiritual and special interest groups.

- Special family event venue - private living space in the heart of Old Bisbee that visitors just love to see.

- Recent addition - guest proposed to his fiancee. She was thrilled!

-Personal or Family get away - clean, easy to maintain environment with all the amenities you need to make your stay feel like 'home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! We had a wonderful and lovely time. We appreciate the house, it was cosy and made us feel at home. Bisbee is an amazing place. Thanks again and we look forward to coming back again.

Roomy for 4 people; not enough comfortable seating in living room for more than two people.

  • 3 of 5

Kitchen and bath were adequate. Everything was clean. Bedding was not comfortable. Not enough seating for television watching. What was called a BBQ was a small tabletop unit sitting on the ground. Outside porches and furniture were dusty and covered with cobwebs. Convenience to town was good; made up for some of the negatives. Overall, place was fair, but not a place we would recommend or stay in again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We appreciate you informing us about the cobwebs on the outside furniture so we can address this issue with our cleaners. We will also add additional description to our listing with regard to the size of the BBQ that is available. We spend a lot of time in our home and find the bedding extremely comfortable. We love being able to use just the duvet or just the blankets or both, as needed. The living room area has a couch that easily accommodates 3 people with additional comfortable chairs in the bedroom closet to use, as well as a very comfortable bean bag to lounge on. For those folks who prefer sitting on a chair with more support, there is a particularly comfortable rattan chair that I prefer to sit on. Accommodation at our home is extremely well priced considering many added advantages like the location in Old Bisbee, private lanai, double-pane windows to block out street noise and particularly of value... off street parking. We get compliments all the time as you can see from the other reviews that we receive.

Adorable and Quiet House in Bisbee

  • 5 of 5

This was even nicer and cuter than it appeared in the pictures. Everything was clean and the house is stocked with lots of supplies, literally anything you could think of needing for any length of stay here. I also felt that the house was the perfect distance away from downtown Bisbee; about 0.6 miles - close enough to walk there in 10-15 minutes, but far enough away to be feel a bit more quiet and isolated. Overall, both Bisbee and the this house exceeded my expectations!

Non responsive owner and too funky for us.

  • 1 of 5

This rental was very frustrating for us. While the owner responded in a reasonable time to initial inquiries, she did not respond to later requests for location and for information about how to gain access to the house. On the day of the rental, a few hours before we expected to arrive, we were sending multiple email messages, leaving phone messages, and even leaving posts on her Facebook. Finally, we called VRBO help desk and believe we received a call from the owner's substitute only after lodging a complaint. In the meantime, as far as we knew, we had no place to stay in Bisbee. We also found it strange that we'd been asked for one credit card to hold the reservation, plus PayPal to pay the rent....two separate transactions, which worried us. When we arrived, our parking place was filled with a tenant from another unit, and we were advised to park downtown instead. (Later, the owner's substitute asked the other tenant to move his car so we could park.) Finally, although we had reserved the house for three adults, there were only two sets of towels...and no extras to be found. Even putting these issues aside, we found the house a little funkier than we like...older linens, lumpy pillows, and a living room that seats only two. It was clean, though, and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware, plates, and glasses.

Owner's Response: It sounds like our guest may not have read the confirmation email that was sent on Oct 15. In this email we clearly explain that the credit card used to hold the space is NOT charged, it merely reserves the booking made on line. The email goes on to clatify that a paypal request for payment will follow. The email also explains that the access code to enter our home will be sent to them prior to check in time. In this case we had guests the day before. Check out time is 12 noon. The access code only got assigned at that time. In the laundry room there is a closet with spare linen which our guests may have missed. Apologies with regard to the parking challenge. We did not know that our other guests had used the space allocated to the front house until we were informed and we responded to resolve it as soon as we could. Pillows are new and get washed after each reservation. We have never had any complaints. Yes, the house is funky! Guests are able to see that from the photos. Very colorful, very Bisbee-like. In the living room there are 3 chairs, a bean bag and a couch. The dining area is adjacent as seen in the images. Extra chairs may be taken from therel. Excellent customer service is what we aspire to. All 4 snd 6 star reviews endorse our philosophy.

Just far enough away from downtown to "escape"

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my boyfriend and another couple during Pride 2015. There was plenty of space to spread out and relax. We enjoyed being able to be downtown for the events but be away from the action once we were ready to call it a night.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This home was a cute place, conveniently located and a an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants of Bisbee.

However, when we arrived, there was only one almost-gone roll of toilet paper and not any additional rolls for 4 adults staying overnight. We checked all drawers and cabinets in the bathroom and found nothing. We had to go to a store late at night to remedy this. This seems to be in issue in some of the other reviews, so it might be good to keep a stock of toilet paper for the house somewhere.

Owner's Response: I'm so so sorry to hear that. We have spoken to our cleaning crew about this several times now. We only learn that they don't respond to our requests by your honest feedback and we appreciate that immensely. You can be sure that we will follow up on this again. Thanks for letting us know.
