About this listing
Private bedroom in home in East Mesa, Arizona. Private bath and kitchen access. Large back yard with covered patio, off-street parking. We have 4 small dogs that will be penned to the opposite end of the house but have access to the back yard.
Bedroom has two single beds, with a dresser and closet space. You will have your own private bath with tub/shower. There is also a small refrigerator in the room for guest use.
You may use the dining room and the living room and the large back yard (dogs have access to back yard also). There is a spacious ramada in the back for sitting and relaxing. There is a hammock.
Interaction with guests
Either Jerry or Margarita will be available most of the time (we're retired) to help with any questions you may have. We have lived here 25 years and know the area fairly well. We travel a bit ourselves and have used AirBnB in a number of cities around the world. We speak English and Spanish and Jerry can manage a bit of French and some other languages.
This is a quiet residential area with commercial areas at either end of the street. There are supermarkets, restaurants and shopping plazas within 1/2 mile (1 km) of the house in just about any direction. We are close by Apache Junction (Lost Dutchman Mine area). Nearby are Saguaro Lake, Tonto National Forest and the Superstition Mountains. There are lots of things happening here such as Baseball Spring Training, Arts and Craft fairs and gorgeous winter weather!
Best to have your own car or a rental car. The bus stop is about 10 min walk from our house and public transportation is spotty at this end of town. There is an express bus that leaves from about 2 mi (3 km) away and goes to Phoenix 4 x in the morning and returns 4x in the afternoon. The light rail is about 8 mi (13 km) away.
Other things to note
We have 4 chihuahua dogs we've rescued. They are penned at the far end of the house so they won't come near the guest room. They are allowed free run of the back yard, but we can pen them in if you prefer.
NO SMOKING! Please respect our property. No loud music. Please watch your language!

We're a couple that have been married 40 years. We live in Mesa, Arizona. Jerry is retired from BOEING Corp and Margarita is a retired teacher. She is originally from Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. Jerry, in his youth, was a real cowboy (not at ALL like the movies!). He is a hobby blacksmith and both he and Margarita love to travel but are not big on "tours".
Five things we can't live without? Each other, our family, our religion. Margarita cannot live without spicy food. Jerry can't live without fire and iron.
"Life is too important to be taken seriously." Oscar Wilde
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It
