The space
The house has three bedrooms, one of which is equipped and used as a study. The others are a master bedroom with a queen size bed and an en suite bathroom with shower and large corner bath. The second bedroom also has a queen size bed and is adjacent to the family bathroom with a bath and shower over it. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house making it highly suitable for two couples.

The lounge and dining room are combined to form a 'Great Room'. This leads to the well-equipped kitchen and breakfast area.

The whole house is air-conditioned by a heat pump which doubles as a heater in cold weather.

Where you’ll be

Portal, Arizona, United States

Let us introduce you to one of the world's best destinations for lovers of nature and the great outdoors. The Arizona Sky Village was set up to provide astronomers with access to clear, dark skies where they can enjoy and share their hobby with like-minded people. Its location was chosen carefully by Jack Newton, the leading astrophotographer, with astronomy in mind but it also happens to be one of the premiere bird-watching locations in North America and is at the mouth of Cave Creek Canyon in the beautiful Chiricahua Mountains.

The village itself is a low-impact development designed to preserve the unspoilt beauty of the area. Single-storey homes on large plots are dotted about in the desert at the foot of the mountains giving access to lovely scenery and a wealth of wildlife. Strict planning rules ensure the night sky remains dark to reveal its natural beauty.

Once the stamping grounds of Apache chiefs such as Cochise and Geronimo the area is rich in game. Abundant pottery shards show the sites of former indian camps. Monuments mark the locations of significant events in the history of the area which involved many conflicts between white settlers, Native Americans and Mexicans.

Desert birds, mountain birds and migratory species travelling between Mexico and the north make up a rich diet for the bird watcher, whether novice or dedicated twitcher.

Javelinas, Coati, Jack Rabbits, Cottontails and many other animals are seen regularly. More rarely mountain lions and black bears may be glimpsed.

During your stay

The house is completely self-contained and offers a good deal of privacy. It is looked after by a local couple (Rob and Debbie) who do an excellent job. You are unlikely to see them unless you call them with a problem. Their contact details are in the Green Witch Guide to the Arizona Sky Village which gives lots of useful information about the house and how to make the most of your visit. I can email a copy if you let me know.
