I arrived with 3 friends, one a couple who slept in a large, well appointed master suite with sliding doors to a patio. We were met by the outgoing and bird-loving owner and his equally friendly golden lab, a treat for animal lovers as we all were. The apartment we rented was quiet and equipped with a small refrigerator, toaster,... More

My uncle and I have each birded SE Arizona multiple times - this was his third time staying at Battiste's and my second. As always, Tony and Julie's hospitality is second to none. Fresh fruit and baked goods were always waiting for us no matter how early we woke to go birding. Tony's expertise and knowledge of the area is... More

We had only one night in Sierra Vista area, and didn't have an opportunity to stay here, but I called and asked about seeing their Elf Owl that evening. On the phone, Julie was wonderful about inviting us over to see it. Not really knowing what to expect, we found a group of birders already there - some we had... More

What a comfortable place to stay. We stayed three nights in April to see the Elf owl and all the yard birds. The Owl's Roost room was very comfortable. We enjoyed Julie's fresh baked breads every morning. Tony is great at identiflying birds by sight and sound. Also very good at helping us to get pictures of the Elf Owl.... More

Thank you, Tony and Julie, for the most excellent stay. The accommodations are very comfortable and made us feel at home. The home baked goods were delicious and the hospitality is phenomenal. It feels like you're visiting family, family that you like. The yard set up is so good it makes it hard to go elsewhere for birding, but the... More

Tony and Julie were wonderful hosts and the accomodations were comfortable and homey. We easily settled in to our rooms and took full advantage of the fantastic backyard birding. Tony was very helpful with bird identification, tips on where to go to see birds, and we really enjoyed our Elf Owl evenings! We were fortunate to find Battiste's BBB and... More

As I come to the end of my stay with Tony and Julie (Battiste's B & B) I reflect how fortunate I was to find this gem of a place. Tony has been more than accommodating with his extensive bird knowledge and general advise about the area - he, at no cost to me, took me to a friends place... More

If you're going to the Sierra Vista area in southeast Arizona, I can think of no better place to stay than at Tony and Julie Battiste's Bed and Breakfast. Not only is it centrally located to wonderful birding sites in the area, it is clean, comfortable, with an array of breakfast foods, and internet access, as well as great bird... More

We spent four nights here and greatly enjoyed the (non-intrusive) friendly, educational and accommodating company of our hosts, Tony and Julie, as well as several other guests. No sense in repeating what has been already said in other reviews, but as with others, recommend this B&B highly. Our hosts ID'd the birds by sound and sight, and called us out... More

My husband and I spent 5 very enjoyable nights at the Battiste's. I can't say enough about how we enjoyed our stay. Tony and Julie are outstanding hosts. The rooms (we were in both The Casita and The Owl's Roost) are very clean and well stocked with food, supplies, and local information. Julie's homemade baked goods are outstanding. Best of... More
