casita, noun

ca·​si·​ta | \ kə-ˈsē-tə

Definition of casita: a small house

First, a truth-in-advertising disclaimer. Though we call it “the casita,” it’s not a small house. It’s not a big house either; it’s just a normal house.

We hope you come and enjoy the Sonoran Desert, a place of fantastic biodiversity. On any given day right out the back yard you may see many birds, owls, javelina, bobcats, mule deer, coyotes, and snakes (summer only).

House rules:

  • No pets
  • No smoking (do we even know anyone who smokes?)
  • Stay up to a week
  • Keep in mind that we both are working so probably are not free to play with you during the day. There will be exceptions of course.

Under the Casita button in the main navigation, there are sub-pages of handy information and links, to get you up to speed on the good stuff to see and do and eat.
