Arizona Desert Charm

5 on September 29, 2014

We had a delightful stay in a lovely setting. Our host was welcoming, knowledgeable about activities in the entire state, and prepared and served us delicious breakfasts. We loved having coffee on our terrace in the morning and looking up at the stars at night. I would highly recommend this B 'n B!


Wow! An outstanding experience!

I stayed here 19 years ago and wanted to come back. It is a perfect location. Dave gives you the feeling of not only being a guest but staying there as a friend. The breakfast in his personal dining room ist absolutely great. There are those little things which makes the stay perfect - a microwave and a small kitchen in the room (water, microwave popcorn and a lot of snacks provided in the room and in the public area) the tons of towels, the little private terrace with a mexican fireplace - and: the outstanding location in the middle of the desert. You can watch a lot of animals there (in the evening a coyote passed by at the hot tub area), see the beautiful sky with the stars at night, the sunsets are amazing - WONDERFUL! And thank you Dave!


A desert Idyll.

A lovely stay in the Sonoran desert. Our room was charming and we really enjoyed our private terrace complete with the kiva fireplace. The nightly candles around the portal were a romantic touch and Dave's breakfasts were delicious.


Outstanding Tucson Area B&B

5 on May 08, 2014

Our host Dave was excellent. We received a free upgrade to a 2-bedroom suite with living area and dining area. Our master bedroom had 2 bathrobes, a small microwave and refrigerator, plus there was a patio right outside with a small fireplace. The central layout of the hacienda-style accommodations was very comfortable and relaxing, with plenty of comfortable chairs and lounges, magazines, central garden and fountain. At night-time, this area is very pretty with lots of candles (or at least battery-lit candles). The gourmet breakfasts were amazing, delicious, and most elegantly presented. Dave also helped us plan our activities and provided directions too. A wonderful way to get away from the hustle and bustle of town and we would definitely return to Casa Tierra.


AZ at its Best

My wife and I stayed two nights in Uno. Everything was perfect. Real Southwest living. Decor was excellent in room and interior patios. Much attention to detail. Sunsets second to none. B/B owner Dave was great and cooks up beautiful Southwestern breakfasts. Really spoiled us. Excellent for all!!!!!

Desert solitude

Very nice hacienda home in the desert. A little cluttered and decor is dated, but the setting, the service and location were great.
