TRIP ADVISOR “5 star Diamond Birding Casita!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

A birder's paradise-- Cardinals, thrashers, warblers,
doves and sparrows living among the Cottonwoods,
Italian Cypresses and the Juniper Pines on site.
You will find feathered friends fluttering and
chirping the whole day through!! It was a great
experience and I look forward to our next visit. A
Clean, spacious, 2 bedroom home accommodated
my husband and two teenagers for two nights
while we enjoyed the enchanted Chiricahua
Mountains on the Arizona/ New Mexico border. Full
kitchen amenities and spacious living room with TV
and free movies on loan from the management.
The property is well maintained and the
management is top notch!!
Room Tip: La Paloma Casita faces the Chiricahua
Mountains as the sun rises in the East!!

I would never in a million years have imagined this place could possibly be
as good as it was. It's in a teeny tiny town very close to Portal AZ and the
Cave Creek recreational area. The Cowboy Room, in which I stayed, is
huge, with a king bed, a small kitchen area (complete with microwave
fridge, small table AND a kitchen sink), and a nice-size bathroom (no tub
but since I prefer showers, that was excellent). The space was very clean
and comfortable.

I loved the furnishings. They were simple and it's possible an interior
designer could've thought they were mismatched -- but I personally
thought they were perfect. There were some cool posters on the walls, a
few cowboy photos (one of which I thought was incredibly sweet), and a
plaque showing different kinds of barbed wire and their histories (who

The Cowboy Room has a small porch as well and one of the highlights of
my stay was sitting out on it, reading and listening to the birds. Dan, the
owner, has put in a small koi pond in the back and there were a LOT of
birds to hear. He's also built a small hydroponic greenhouse which
exchanges water with the pond -- ask him to show it to you if you stay

Dan also has chickens and sells eggs; the place has a small laundromat
as well. He was friendly and helpful without ever being intrusive -- an ideal
host. He'd warned me that no restaurants would be open the night I stayed
there, but that was no problem -- not the least because of the microwave
and kitchen table.

I highly recommend staying here. It's definitely off the beaten path and
incredibly peaceful. It would be an excellent choice for a retreat and/or
recharging you internal batteries.
Room Tip: I LOVED the Cowboy Room.

We loved this place - very reasonably
priced and nicely appointed room - We
try to avoid chains when we are on the
road and this stay confirmed that it is the
right way to travel. A great base to
explore the Chiricahua Mountains.
