We stayed at The Sun catcher for a week. The owners were very friendly and breakfast was unbelievable! Healthy, imaginative, delicious breakfasts! Relaxing environment, beautiful landscaping, comfortable rooms! Also, while missing our dogs, we were able to play with their pugs and labs. Lots of tummy rubs and fun!

This place has its own botanical garden outside our bedroom. The scenery and surrounding landscape was delightful. Janos is a gem to talk to and makes the most fabulous breakfast - portions are over the top - and such healthy eating. The presentation was outstanding as well. We were so close to the Nat'l Park. One of the very best bed and breakfast - and we have been to several.

The innkeeper Janos is wonderful. The french toast was the best we ever have had. The view from the inn of the mountain is fantastic. We can't wait to go back next year. Donna and Rich

We spend two wonderful nights in this wonderful place. To call it Bed & Breakfast doesn't give it proper credit, it is so much more than it. From the very beginning we were welcomed by Jonas like friends. His house is amazing: beautiful architecture filled with amazing artwork and books about everything you ever wanted to read. His breakfast is also a work of art! It was extremely delicious and nutritious (perfect if one is about to take a hike in the very nearby National Park; actually some of the trails start one minute away from the house). The room we stayed in was spacious with many fine features (fireplace) as was the bathroom. The other guests we meet during our stay were also very interesting so we ended up every evening with long and good talks. All in all: Perfect!

This is an excellent place to stay for the whole family, and more! We had 2 families, total 10, which we all had our own incredibly comfortable beds, private bathrooms, full access to the kitchen & grill. But the best part was the private pool & hot tub with access from just about every room! No need to worry about who is taking the kids to the pool, because you are all right there! Hope to come back again. Because of our week stay we did not use the food service provided but we had everything we needed for comfort and pleasure! Highly recommend this Inn and take full advantage of being within walking distance of Saguaro National Park.

Wonderful place for our 5 day stay. Janos is a kind and considerate host that makes an incredible breakfast. The room was comfortable including the bed! Very relaxing place to stay. The home and grounds are beautiful. The location is only a short walk to the Saguaro National Park with miles of hiking trails. I would stay there again and recommend it to my friends and family.
