The space

Casa del Sol is a custom tri-level solar home that integrates solar, water conservation and artistic architectural design to highlight the openness of the great American Southwest.

The center of activities is an 800 sq. ft. great room with 14 foot ceilings for group gatherings. Dining and kitchen areas overlook this room and extend into an outdoor covered deck. This area is elevated for stunning mountain views and the saguaro cactus of the national park area. Warm Mexican Southwest furniture contrasts walls of modern art to create a intriguing visual environment.

There is additional space available for rent on the same property if they need more or less space. There is ample parking for several cars.

Interaction with guests

We live in the art studio (a separate building on the property) when renting and like meeting new people and making acquaintances. We like to give suggestions for things to do, especially in the local area where all the main attractions are located, most only minutes away. As travelers ourselves, we are interested in other cultures and places. In general, we are sensitive to the needs of the renting party, including respecting their privacy. Everyone is uniquely different in this regard.

Other things to note

The home is available daily with no reservations if there is vacancy. There is a minimum 2 day stay for low season non-reserved rentals. All reservations made in high season, from Sept. 1 to May 31, require a minimum 4 day stay.

The master bedroom suite is available for 1 day rental with it's own kitchen and master bath if the home is vacant. Please visit our other AIRbnb listings for Studio de Sonora details.

If additional space is required for added privacy and additional bedrooms, the Studio de Saguaro rental is available on the same property, 100 feet from the home. You must rent this as a separate rental on AIRbnb:

This was an absolutely lovely place to stay and had plenty of room for all 16 people in our party. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Hope to stay there again sometime.

We stayed here for a retreat for our small non-profit and had an incredible time! The house is even more gorgeous in person than in the photos and Marshall was kind and accomodating.

Marshall was an absolutely incredible host. Prior to our arrival, his communication was incredibly clear and present. He answered all of my questions promptly and accurately. Once there, he helped to orient us to the house. The house was spotless and filled with fresh towels. The kitchen is very easy to use and has all the appliances you would need. The landscape around the house is amazing. We were able to build a small bonfire as well with our student group. There's great hiking close by to the house. If you like to run, there roads are safe and great for running near by the house.

The Host was at the house to greet us, he was welcoming and encouraged us to let him know if we needed anything. The house was lovely and well appointed. It certainly out did the photographs. This was a family gathering, there was plenty of room especially in the "great room" which was comfortable and provided us with the opportunity to talk together and watch movies. The desert surrounded the property and was beautiful. We had good places to walk and bike.. Our only proble was the hot tub which didn't work well although Marshall worked hard on fixing it which he did. We would definitely come back.

Casa del Sol is a beautiful property. The perfect place for expat desert rats to return for a family reunion. Plenty of room for all ages.

Eleven other writers and I spent four nights and five days at Casa del Sol for a writing retreat. We had a great time. The place was listed accurately. At some point the wi-fi connection did not work, but Marshall came to fix it. We cooked twice a day with the fully-stocked kitchen. It was an incredible stay! Thank you!
