CASITA DEL REY is a charming, private 2-room, 560-sq foot cowboy guesthouse on a stunning 5-acre estate, including a first-class equine therapy facility for horses and the rescue of donkeys in the SW U.S.

We have it all...charm, nature and comfort! A gorgeous pool, sunset patios & chance to get up-close to horses and donkeys! Amenities: kitchenette, refrig, stove top, steam shower, basketball court, picnic area, labyrinth, walking paths, high-speed WiFi/HDTV, shopping/dining w/in 5 minutes!

The space
Southwestern casita on 5 acres. A true oasis in the heart of Tucson! The interior is both charming and unique. Inside-cozy up by the gas stove fire or relax in the steam shower.

Outside, feel free to bask in the sun or shade, go for a swim, tour the grounds, play basketball, picnic or hammock and view the spectacular sunsets and wildlife.

To mark the end of each day and to honor the servicemen and women who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedoms, a 58-second Taps bugle call will sound on the Casita Del Rey grounds every night at Civil Dusk (approximately 25 minutes after official sunset) and at High Noon on both Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

Also on the Casita Del Rey estate resides the first-class El Dorado Stables for The Oracle Institute, the home to equine therapy horses and the rescue of donkeys from throughout the SW United States. Book now and be able to enjoy these beautiful animals!

Guest access
Guests have access to the estate property, but may only enter the corral areas with either Kiki or Patrick due to safety considerations.

Feel free to observe and watch our horses, Mediterranean miniature donkeys, Nigerian dwarf and Pygmy goats, and chickens from outside the fence line. Guests wanting to interact with the animals inside the fence line or corrals, can set up a time with Patrick or Kiki to see these wonderful creatures up close.

The pool (unheated) is located behind the fenced area around the main house. Do be sure to close and secure the gates at all times. This keeps unwanted wildlife from getting into the yard.

Thank you!

Other things to note
Careful: Desert wildlife is abundant! For safety, pets must be watched (a leash is best) while outside. Children should not be left unattended. Earlier this year a mountain lion was spotted on the property. Bobcats and javelina are also very common to the area.

Comfort: We aim to please! We have provided two Casita Del Rey robes (these can also be purchased), two sets of towels, pool/swim towels, clean sheets, and 4 pillows. No need to bring your sound machine or a clock radio! However, you might want to bring a camera or binoculars. We have "glamping" items too-a hammock and lantern, grill, charcoal and (hopefully) all the things you may need. Your comfort is important to us as you adventure about in your home away from home!

Patrick served 24 years in the United States Air Force, mostly as a C-130 pilot and presidential advance agent for Air Force One. After many moves, his career finally landed us in sunny Tucson. We love The Old Pueblo! Patrick now works as a government contract instructor pilot and I am a clinical therapist. When not working, we enjoy traveling or spending time with family and friends. We also love to entertain and work on projects around our 5 acre property. Come stay at Casita Del Rey- it would be our pleasure to show you around! Warmly, Kiki.
