This is an amazing place to stay! Beautiful location, a little remote (and therefore nice and relaxing) but still easy to get to everywhere you might want to go in the area. Nancy and Bill were perfect hosts. All kinds of goodies awaited us upon arrival and both Nancy and Bill were full of tips on things to do in the area. The ranch has everything one might need. Loved my morning coffee on the porch watching the many birds. And the sunsets are amazing!

The house is nicely decorated and has everything you will need. Large bedroom with comfortable bed. Visiting in July, so very hot, but AC worked great and the patio always has shady areas. Just wonderful to sit outside in the morning, evening or at night. Lots of birds and tranquiltiy. Great place overall.

Where to begin…I can’t say enough about how wonderful our host Nancy was. Nancy was personable and inviting from the moment we first connected over text. She and her husband were willing to allow us to have our 5 dogs stay here as well which was an incredible accommodation. We were in a pinch because our RV is being repaired and we had nowhere else to stay. The ranchito is adorable inside and out with SW decor and everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay on 5 acres of beautiful desert. I especially loved relaxing on the patio in the shade of the trees listening to the birds. There are many birds that spend their time in the trees and on the cactus around the patio. If you are looking for solitude, nature and a stay in a charming adobe casita, this is where you want to book your stay. Nancy has been the best hostess I’ve ever had and I will be back next year. If I could give it more stars, I would.

Where to begin? This property exceeded our expectations. From the moment we pulled up at sunset and met with Nancy, we knew we had made the right choice. The pictures you see don't even depict the true beauty of this property. We could feel the love and joy put into this property by Bill and Nancy. Nancy had some arrival treats as well as a special flashlight for our son. She walked us through the home and made us feel comfortable. All of the recommendations she gave us were perfect for our short stay. From the food, hikes and the Desert Museum, everything was such an amazing experience. And to top it off, the AZ sunset from this property was out of this world. Our son enjoyed walking the paths on the property looking at cacti and wildlife. The home was super clean and cozy for the three of us. We look forward to reconnecting with Bill and Nancy and staying at the property again.

From the get go, it was really easy to communicate with Nancy who had prepped us for our arrival and was waiting for us when we arrived. She kindly explained everything about the property and the house and gave us some locals advice for places to eat etc.. She was easily accessible via text during our whole stay and you could just tell she loved sharing her place with others! Thank you Nancy! The property itself is stunning. It’s relatively secluded and is off the beaten path. It does take about 10 min to get to the major road but that’s also what made this place so nice. Really enjoyed waking up each morning to the singing birds and sunshine. Nancy and Bill thought of everything in the house. The kitchen is well stocked and there’s a nice basket full of basic hygiene products just in case someone forgot something. She told us all the door knobs were sanitized right before we arrived do it was refreshing she has our safety in mind. We definitely wouldn’t hesitate booking again!

Loved our stay at the Martini Ranch. We are avid bird watchers and found the best place to watch was just out the back door on the patio. Nancy thought of everything, what a wonderful hostess. So much to do within a 40 minute drive we were busy most days but chose to spend an abundance of time just relaxing and enjoying the Arizona weather from the back yard.

This property will live in us a for a while; it is that impactful. From the adventurous drive in (where we spotted wildlife regularly) to the heavenly morning routine we adopted, Nancy's and Bill's Casita surpassed our expectations. Everything was comfortable, the kitchen was well outfitted and we felt extremely welcomed. The patio included great firepit that we used one night, new Adirondack chairs, bird-feeding blocks, bird watering trays and plenty of seating and eating spaces. I just don't know what else to say about this property except there wasn't anything to complain about. Well, there was one thing, and when we brought it up to the owners it was corrected immediately. Now that's service!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Martini Ranch. We have not felt the kind of peace we found there in a couple of years Closing the gate behind us after a day trip felt like coming home. The pantry was well stocked with coffee spices and condiments. The kitchen had just about anything you needed for preparing and cooking a meal, even baking. It was very well lit with night lights for safety in each room. The bathroom had plenty of linens and a few toiletries along with a very nice shower and shower gel. Nancy gave us a great introduction to the surrounding area and places that suited our interests. We loved the mornings and late afternoons for walking the property, photography, and the beautiful Sonoran Desert. We ate breakfast outdoors everyday and saw a great variety of birds, even a few new to our list. The ground squirrels had little ones that entertained us with their antics. All and all, an excellent get away.

We had a great trip visiting Arizona this past weekend! Nancy was very hospitable and had lots of goodies waiting for us at the Ranchito upon arrival. She was very accommodating during the check-in process and waited for us to arrive after our late flight. The property is even more beautiful in person. It was our own little dessert oasis. I would highly recommend this Ranchito to everyone!!
