We spent two nights on a recent trip to Tucson (hoping to see the stars at Kitt Peak, but surprisingly were rained out); Caroline is an outstanding hostess and her B&B is a nicely designed adobe (straw bale) single family home in a neighborhood about 20 minutes outside of Tucson. She has landscaped the grounds to feel like the true... More

During a recent trip to Tucson I had a couple of days with no firm plans, so on a lark I booked the Paca de Paja--the straw-bale construction caught my eye and my fancy. Our stay there ended up being the highlight of the trip! On first arriving you may think you are in the middle of nowhere, but it... More

I lived in Tucson several years back and I wanted to make certain that I was able to show my fiancé the real Tucson (not the hotels and city). Caroline has a perfect place with all the perfect parts of Tucson living and the southwest built in. You will be the only guest and she will provide you the peace... More

We've enjoyed many B&B's in our travels, but Paca de Paja is second to none in our experience. The accommodations could not have been more lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was exceptional and thoughtfully prepared by Caroline. She immediately made us feel at home. Because of Caroline's vast knowledge of the area, she was the perfect day trip planner for us!... More

This little B&B is litterally tucked away in the desert and only has one suite. We spent 3 days with our wonderful host Caroline, who provided us with lots of information to explore the surrounding area. Along with our bedroom we had a great little library and a beautiful private courtyard for relaxing and wildlife viewing. We saw roadrunners and... More

The husband and I took some time to ride to Tucson's Kitt Peak Observatory and while there for the weekend we decided to stay at a local bed and breakfast called Paca de Paja and we left feeling spoiled. It was our first time staying at a B & B instead of a hotel so we were a bit nervous.... More

This charming B&B really is in the boonies - but is convenient for Kitt Peak and for hiking in the desert. It has only one room on offer so reservations are imperative. You get a bedroom and a living room and a private patio where you can relax and enjoy the desert birds and the stars. There is a small... More

Paca de Paja B&B feels more remote than it actually is. There is one guest suite set apart from the owner, Catherine Wilson's, own living quarters. Everywhere you look in the suite or in the main part of the house,where a delicious breakfast is served, there is beauty with a Southwestern motif. Those concerned with the health of the planet...

This is a wonderful B&B located outside of Tucson. Caroline is a perfect host with her little dog Hampton. The guest accomodations are private including a separate sitting room, patio and jacuzzi. Caroline makes delicious home-made bread in her solar oven. For those that enjoy spending time in a quiet and pristine area (as we did), this is the place... More

Caroline and Hampton offer impeccable and thoughtful hospitality. Their home is decorated throughout with Southwestern charm and practicality. More importantly, however, is their desire to make their guests feel welcome and to facilitate their enjoyment of the area. Maps and guidebooks abound plus personal recommendations based on guests' desires. I was also most impressed with Caroline's willingness to print out... More
