We love the peace and quiet of the desert. This is a wonderful B&B to kick off your boots and settle in to be pampered. Dave Malmquist has everything you need for an exceptional vacation. Wake to the smell of coffee and muffins and corn bread. Sit down to a gourmet breakfast. Have all your questions answered about the surrounding... More

This was a beautiful, peaceful spot close to the Desert Museum. The rooms were nicely decorated and came complete with everything you need. We especially enjoyed our evenings on our patio with the chiminea. The interior courtyard with comfortable seating and fountain provided another spot to relax. Dave went out of his way the provide his guests with a warm... More

The desert is a surprising place. There's a lot more going on here than you may imagine. Down here in Arizona some people live pretty much in the desert, right on the border of the Saguaro national Park. If you know where to stay, you can try a desert stopover too. Casa Tierra is a lovely adobe (hand made Mexican... More

I stayed here 19 years ago and wanted to come back. It is a perfect location. Dave gives you the feeling of not only being a guest but staying there as a friend. The breakfast in his personal dining room is absolutely great. There are those little things which makes the stay perfect - a microwave and a small kitchen... More

I guess I’ll just pile on here with another five star review for Dave’s little gem in the desert, Casa Tierra. He says he’s been at it for 15 years . . . and he’s really good at it by now. He’s a retired mining engineer who’s worked all over the world, so I guess it’s no surprise that the... More

Peaceful setting, quaint rooms with unlimited snacks (yogurt, fruit, granola bar) and a gourmet breakfast- this place is perfect! I spend two nights here with my family in two rooms and was very happy. This B&B is off the beaten path and feels a million miles away from the rest of the world.

My husband and I enjoyed two wonderful days and nights at this lovely B&B. It's located in a beautiful setting, just outside Tucson--down the road from the Saguaro National Park and the Desert Museum (both excellent places to check out). It's an adobe-style, hacienda building with lots of nooks and crannies (with beautiful architectural elements and lush greenery) for relaxing.... More

What a wonderful relaxing place to stay. Anyone wanting to be right in the desert, amidst the cactus, the stunning landscape, the night sky and wild life, but still have comfort, look no further. Plus its right on the edge of Saguaro West and by the Desert Museum. Dave has done a great job in creating a peaceful haven. The... More

As many other reviews have stated, this place is just perfect for a relaxing stay in the desert. Right next to te national park and the desert museum, the location is just right for getting out and exploring the area.

The location which is close to the park is outstanding for the setting which makes you feel you already int he park. Since it is on the unpaved road the views are outstanding. The attention to detail of his decorations and the inner courtyard offers a really quiet place to relax. What makes this bed and breakfast even more unique... More
