Ideal for couples or families and friends wanting to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this beautiful home can accommodate up to 10 people, but it is also very cozy for individuals or couples who want a quiet retreat. It has 3 double bedrooms (one king, one queen and one full) with ensuites + sofa beds for 4 people + a crib.
Oracle is a convenient location for people to stay if they need to be close to Biosphere 2 or the two SaddleBrooke active adult communities.
Tasteful interiors, sweeping desert and mountain vistas, memorable sunsets and the changing colors of the day, as well as starry night skies, make just being there a pleasure.
The many living areas and well distributed spaces make it cozy for small groups but also very suitable for large groups. It is great for family gatherings and reunions of friends because of the large expandable dining room table, which makes it also good for celebrating special occasions. Rates are for up to 4 people staying > for large groups inquire.
It is a real home away from home with a good selection of books, DVDs and internet access. There are two living rooms and two TVs which can be useful if children are part of your party. As far as TV channels go we use DIRECTV and, if you do not want to miss your favorite game, you might like to know that we subscribe to the Sports channel, too.
Artists, academics and nature lovers find it a beautiful and peaceful place to work in and relax.
The moderate elevation (4,800 feet) avoids extremes of temperature all year round: summers are never too hot and winters are never really cold.
You will be given clear directions on how to reach our home once you arrive in Oracle. A neighbor will meet you and give you the keys as well as be on call should you need help in any way. She will also be able to inform you of local events and give you any advice needed.
Interaction with guests
We tend to interact with our guests from the moment the booking is made simply because that way we can prepare the house for their particular needs. We always meet them at the start of their stay, and sometimes, at the end as well. During their stay guests can treat this beautiful home as their "home away from home" and will not be disturbed in any way. Our home is always carefully cleaned before and after guests arrive and we use professional services, like Truly Nolen, to ensure that everything is just right for our guests.
Other things to note
We find that the temperature here is moderate all year round but if you ever need to switch on the heating or ceiling fans you are, of course, welcome to do so. All bills are included, so we simply expect you to be sensible and not waste gas or electricity but especially water because, as you know, water is expensive and precious in Arizona.
We welcome children and pets, we accept careful smokers and don't really have any house rules but we do expect our guests to respect our property and appreciate the care that has been put into making it a perfect home for people of all ages and of all tastes, so please leave it as you found it and let us know if you think that anything could be improved.
