It´s like Paradise

We were in the Hacienda in May 2015 for four nights - it was definitly a Highlight of our trip - from the first moment we feel very welcome, like "coming home" and Rosemary and David (and Shanna) are perfect hosts - the breakfast was delicious (homemade Granola!) - whenever we have the opportunity we will come back!

Peace in the Desert!

Or wife of the year! Either way it's a win/win. This inn offers everything you need for romance, or just relaxation. But don't tell anyone -- I want our room to be available when we go back!

I'd go back in a heartbeat

We spent four nights using Hacienda del Desirto as our base to explore the Tuscon area. It was such a splendid place to land each night after driving (you gotta drive in Tucson) and exploring Saguoro NP, the Desert Museum and all the other treasures Tuscon has to offer. It is quiet and in the desert. There is a great nature trail that gets you out into the Saguoros right off the property. And the breakfast is served within a range, 8 to 9,when we were there rather than a set time. This allowed for a much more enjoyable morning as there wasn't a deadline to meet. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Tucson's Desert Jewel

Between Christmas and New Year's Day, my wife and I visited Tucson and stayed two nights in the ultra-spacious Patio Suite at the Hacienda del Desierto Bed and Breakfast. The Patio Suite contains a bedroom area with queen-size bed, a living room area with fully equipped kitchenette, and a bathroom with Mexican talavera sink. It incorporates an eclectic and creative use of regional styles (Native American, Mexican, Southwest Pioneer) and has everything you will need. We learned to operate the ornate, antique heating stove, and it kept the suite very cozy at night. The Hacienda is on the far eastern end of Tucson not far from the Saguaro National Park (eastern entrance). It is difficult to find the first time until you become accustomed to the location. The Hacienda has plenty of birds and a group of javelinas that will entertain you. The Browns are nice people and will assist you with your trip planning and any requests. Breakfasts are quite nice, too (the poached pear is a treat).

Amazing for Romance--Or Just R&R!!

Now our favorite B&B! The inn is an amazing blend of serenity, gorgeous desert & mountain surroundings, and wonderful rooms, anchored by a fabulously decorated and maintained home. Your gracious hosts, David, Mary, and Shanna, go above and beyond to help you feel welcome and pampered, almost like family. You'll have trouble choosing which outdoor patio to be lazy on--each is special and inviting. Indulge in the huge outdoor hot tub. Breakfasts are excellent and beautifully presented. Super comfy beds, nice linens, choice of pillows, and each of the 4 rooms is truly lovely. Don't miss the local Saturday Farmer's Market offering produce, a variety of foods and baked goods, local arts & crafts, and very friendly people. Excellent hiking and cycling all around, plus Saguaro National Park is a must see. If peace, quiet, comfort and privacy are what you seek, you will be extremely happy here.

Serene and scenic

Hacienda Getaway

This place was beautiful from the gorgeous patios to the inside of our patio suite. The food was delish, and the hospitality of the owners... they were delightful people. I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a desert B&B getaway. We loved it!

Best of Both Worlds

4.6 on October 05, 2012

Wonderful B&B managed professionally by David & Romsemary. Family property that demonstrates love & caring from multiple generations -- both in the sturdy & well-appointed accommodations to the obvious land ethic of the surroundings. Excellent location for outdoor breakfast.
