I organised a birding trip for 7 friends and we stayed with Tom and Alicia for 2 nights in May 2014. Their hospitality was unbeatable - more food than us Brits could eat and lovely, plentiful wine (thanks Tom!) and good rooms. The setting is stunning with plenty of birds in the vicinity, as well as easy access the birding hot-spot at Cave Creek. We really enjoyed our hosts' company, too as well as their unobtrusive helpfulness. Highly recommended and would return at the drop of a stetson!
