Welcome to Cactus Wren Casita
a true Arizona Desert experience!

Welcome to Cactus Wren Casita, enjoy a true Arizonan experience!  Our fully detached 1,100 square foot home is located on 1¼ scenic acres at the base of Superstition Mountain.  With and elevation of 2,015 ft. we’re nearly 1,000 feet higher than Phoenix.  Enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee on your private front patio with expansive views of the Goldfield Mountains and the City lights at night to the west.  The patio area features a Kiva fireplace (first night’s wood supplied) with table and chairs to enjoy an alfresco lunch or to toast your S’mores.  Cactus Wren Casita has everything you’ll need and more! However if you don’t see it, just ask us.  The fully stocked kitchen, with all new stainless steel appliances has all your modern conveniences.

The dining and living area is open plan with plenty of large windows for natural light and to take advantage of the views!  In fact there are amazing views from every window and sliding glass doors! The spacious, bright and airy bedroom has a NEW luxury “King Size” bed and mattress with premium linen as well as a 32 inch Flat Screen TV; plus there is additional sleeping for 2 more guests on the new Sleeper Sofa with a thick, comfortable Queen-size Cool-Gel mattress.  Both beds are extremely comfortable and come with quality linens and pillows.

A short drive to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping, plus our beautiful local lakes including Theodore Roosevelt Lake which feeds Saguaro Lake, Canyon Lake, and Apache Lake, plus direct private access from the property into the Tonto National Forest (5th largest forest in the US) and many nearby hiking trails including Superstition Mountains and Flatiron (a popular hiking destination).

All meals are the responsibility of guests, however we provide a welcome basket of “goodies” to help with your first breakfast. We also provide many staple items such butter, jam, condiments, coffee, tea, sugar, dry coffee creamer, basic herbs and spices etc.

Pet Policy: While the owners have 3 small dogs we do not allow guest pets. The Casita is kept free of any pet dander for those with sensitivities or allergies.

No Smoking Policy: We do apologize in advance to those that do smoke as this is strictly a “Non-Smoking” vacation property, inside and outside.
