I took my Wife to the Azure gate for her 50th Birthday in October of this year. It is the second time we have stayed with Christine and Dennis. We stayed in the Catalina Guest House which is a separate building to the rest of the house. As before the stay was superb and the food for breakfast was great. Dennis takes a lot of time and effort over his cooking and likes to explain what you are eating and how it was prepared. We love the desert but don't want to go into Tucson except to shop. The local road system in the area will get you around without having to venture into the Tucson city centre. The Azure gate has a large desert garden and has a Bobcat that comes to visit somedays, it didn't make an appearance whilst we were there, more the pity. Dennis is a wildlife photographer and is only to happy to talk about his adventures in the wilderness. Christine is a lovely person and is only to willing to help with local visits and advice. Overall if my wife and I were to go and live in the states we would pick the outer Tucson area and the Azure gate is the sort of life style we would choose. Even in the winter months the weather is great. Long live the Azure Gate. Ken & Eleanor Wood, England
