We rented a cabin for 4 days while we went birding in the Cave Creek Canyon area. The cabin was clean and comfortable with one bedroom, a living room and a small dining nook. Unfortunately there was no stove so we had to go out for dinners and that was a bit of a challenge in Rodeo. The local pub was the only place we could walk to for dinner and although the food was good the menu was limited.
The back yard attracted a large variety of birds including a free flying Macaw parrot. What a surprise.
