Vacation Rental Description
Imagine yourself in this spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright-style home, nestled in the open desert in the Central Catalina Foothills. Breath-taking views of the mountains are available from virtually every room. A sunken living room with huge windows offers comfortable furnishings for groups, and the brand-new dining room easily accommodates 12 people. The separate guest house/casita offers extra privacy for the occupants.
The entire house is constructed of burnt adobe brick, which offers a rustic warmth and charm blended with all the modern conveniences. The adobe maintains a comfortable interior temperature in all seasons.
Surrounded by palm trees, this "Sanctuary in the Desert" has the feeling of staying in your very own private resort.
The Kitchen has been renovated in 2010, with brand new stainless steel appliances and a large island that provides seating. It is fully stocked for gourmet cooking: All-Clad pots and pans, food processor, blender, waffle iron, pasta pot, spices and seasonings, all utensils, etc.
Extensive covered ramadas and patios--all executed in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright--surround the house and Casita, offering opportunity for outside entertaining, viewing the gorgeous desert sunsets, watching the birds, and communing with the desert.
