We're so confident that you'll be enchanted by the magic of the 'Moonrise Casita' that we guarantee your satisfaction in writing within the rental agreement. A slow Tucson real estate market delays the sale of our existing home keeping us from moving into our brand new dream adobe casita. Until our existing home sells our dream casita is available for your dream vacation.

Sheltered inside a cactus studded canyon sprinkled with giant boulders, Moonrise is the perfect peaceful retreat possessing a commanding view of Tucson. With just under 4 acres to roam, the romance of the location will charm couples and thrill families. Possessing the rustic qualities of the classic Tucson adobe style, the massive 16 inch thick walls of Moonrise were forged from the earth with adobe blocks made on site. The casita appears as though it's always been there having grown out of the ground merging seamlessly with the surrounding desert.

Moonrise was built on a long since forgotten mining road leading to 2 abandoned gold mines hidden in the surrounding canyon conjuring images of the old west. You can easily imagine Apache scouts atop the stone towers guarding the entrance to their stronghold. Skip the zoo and curl up with a good book in the window seat if you can tear your eyes away from the dramatic scenery and the varied wildlife passing by. Wildlife viewing is best at twilight when the javelina families troop home past the window to their beds high up on a hill above the casita as the moon rises between the canyon walls. Upon waking from a deep slumber you can gaze up from bed at the hawk's nest in a craggy cliff face perhaps catching a glimpse of the Hawks caring for their young. If you're extremely lucky you might just see the most elusive of all, the tiny ring tail cat.
