We have traveled far and wide over 47 years and Paca de Paja is now at the top of our list for places to return. Caroline is a fascinating woman who exudes the essence of welcoming warmth and enthusiastically shares her knowledge of the Sonoran Desert along with nourishing breakfasts ( date nut bread baked in a solar oven was...

What can we add to what so many others have said here about Paca de Paja except that it was our best B&B experience ever. The house is a work of art, and Caroline is the perfect host. Her recommendations for hikes, road trips, restaurants (even "insider" tips on how best to see the Desert Museum) transformed our brief getaway...

Hi Ron & Yvonne --- I appreciate your nice words about my B&B -- you were delightful guests and I'm so glad Paula suggested my B&B for you. I'll visit you next time I'm in St. George. Thanks for your review!

We were excited about our two night stay in the desert at Paca de Paja B&B and were not disappointed. Caroline is an environmentally conscious, gracious host, who made us feel very welcome. She is a pleasure to chat with and shares her vast knowledgeable about the area including her maps and books. Her little dog Hampton is quiet and...

I was given a nights stay from my cousin, as I live not too far away and this was a needed getaway! Thank you for a very enjoyable time away from the hustle and bustle! The breakfast was made to order and the warm tea before bed was great. Caroline was a wonderful hostess. If you want to see Birds,...

Paca de Paja Our stay with Caroline was the highlight of our 5,000 mile road trip. So much so that we extended our time with her to include an extra day, which we spent relaxing and painting.

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...

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...

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!...

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...

“The closest restaurants are in Downtown Tucson which is a good 20 minute drive from this B+B. The other option is more like a divey, cowboy hangout spot. Bring your own food or eat before you arrive, if you're planning to get there very late.”
