This time of year is a great time to see the "castle" since it is not air conditioned. We really enjoyed the tour and were amazed by the creative uses of life's disgarded items. The views are spectacular and it's definitely a fun piece of Phoenix history. If you love unique old properties put this on your to do list. TIP: This is not a handicap accessible property. There are a lot of steps but my 79 yr old mom didn't have any problem with the tour, infact this was her third time through the the castle.
