About

We call our home Gladden View…

…because we were so happy to discover the place on Easter Sunday several years ago. Every day we feel fortunate to live here, and recently we remodeled one section of our humble home to welcome others to enjoy our little slice of desert life.

We’re off the beaten path, just outside the city limits and down a dirt road. Part of the charm of the place, for us, is the untamed natural desert setting of our property, even though we are so close to stores and restaurants. Plus it’s so quiet!… except for the natural sounds of coyotes, quails, javalinas, and the occasional shout from a neighbor’s donkey.

Just 5 minutes drive from hiking trails in Saguaro National Park East. Your private patio and private entrance lead into a room decorated with Southwestern charm in tranquil, relaxing tones. Comfy queen bed, laptop-friendly writing desk, bistro dining table, lounge chairs, and dresser. Charming kitchenette equipped for your needs. Bathroom has walk-in shower, beautifully tiled. Coffee & tea. Complementary use of WiFi (but no TV – and the cable companies don’t service this street).
