If you are a birder, you need to visit southern Arizona. And if you visit southern Arizona for birds, you need to stay with Tony and Julie. Tony is a professional birder and guide who can tell you where to go to see whatever bird you want. He has created a bird heaven in his back yard where you can... More

My family of five spent a week at Battiste's B B & B. The accommodations were very comfortable but it is the hosts and birds that truly make this place one of a kind. I felt like I was in an aviary when sitting in their back yard. So many species of birds! What a treat it was to see... More

Tony and Julie were extremely gracious hosts. The accommodations were more than adequate with two baths, kitchenette, two bedrooms, TV area and easy access to washer and dryer. My family of four spent three nights and two days there. I am an enthusiast bird photographer. I could not have been happier with the bird blind and surrounding area. Tony is... More

This was our first stay at BB&B (bed&breakfast&birds) and we hope to return someday. What a lovely set-up for birders. Tony welcomed us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of our accomodations and the beautiful water features and bird feeders that attract so many birds. I spent a fantastic day photographing the birds from different sitting areas using... More

Tony and Julie will both make you comfortable and share a beautiful yard that is full of some of Azs special birds. A friend and I only spent one night but it was one I will treasure. I am looking forward to a return trip as soon as possible!

This was our first stay at Batisste's B and B. We thoroughly enjoyed the hosts, Tony and Julie. What a lovely couple and so knowledgeable about the local wildlife. They have set up their yard as a haven for migratory and local birds. We even tried out the bird blind. The birds were so close. This was such a treat.... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Battiste's in early April and enjoyed it a lot. The environment is lovely and Tony and Julie are warm and welcoming. But what makes Battiste's really special is that it lives up to its name of Bed, Breakfast and Birds. Their backyard is great for any birder (the resident elf owl and... More

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
