About the property

2-Bedroom Jewel Nestled in the Heart of the Artsy & Funky Village Of Patagonia

It's your vacation. What if the place you chose to lay your head was as sweetly memorable as your outings and explorations?

What if the warm spirit of the home filled you, nourished you, made you smile, and left you eager to return and partake yet again?

____________________________________

STEP BACK IN TIME...

...when you stay in this lovingly restored, rare and authentic southern Arizona historic jewel. The casa's 2 colorful, sun-drenched bedrooms and artisan bath with exquisite tilework will happily host your group of up to 4 adults.

Built in 1930 by local justice of the peace Oliver Rothrock, Casa Encanta has retained its ample original patina and regional historic architectural charm. Beyond that, it's a magical, thoughtful space, consciously designed to delight you, our treasured guests.

This charming, artisan-constructed bungalow was built using sunbaked-mud adobe brick and almost-forgotten local building methods... back when the West was still wild.

Birders and snowbirds, artists and writers on retreat, couples and friends all love Casa Encanta for its perfectly aged patina and unique magic. Feel warmly tucked-into the welcoming village, while enjoying a Zen view of the Patagonia Mountains.

Rich colors, deftly-balanced patterned fabrics, original art and carefully considered textures provide creature comforts well beyond the pale of the standard vacation rental. For intellectual pursuits, decamp to the Arizona Room—a light-drenched studio with a wall of windows looking out to the courtyard garden, sheltered by a curtain of Tombstone roses. Settle in with a book and let the slant of afternoon sun illuminate your pages.

_________________________________________________________________

Guests comment enthusiastically on Casa Encanta's loving restorations and vibrant, whimsical decor—our 'passion project' over the last 3 years, as we lived here ourselves.

We dearly love this home and loved living here. But now it’s time for us to stop hogging

it, move back to the desert in Tucson to be closer to family, and share this jewel of the Mountain Empire with you—our guests!

Contact us today to book your stay! We're 'hospitality nerds', so come, be spoiled by us!

___________________________________________________________________

A DELIGHTFUL YEAR-ROUND RETREAT

In winter, with a dust of snow on the Mountain Empire, Casa Encanta gathers you into its warm, cheery, mud-adobe hug. A fire flickers in the living room, and the plush down-filled sofa is the perfect place to curl up and watch the satellite-enabled flatscreen TV. Or browse the Internet on your device—we provide the free WiFi! Meanwhile, the 11-inch thick mud adobe regulates the casa to an ideal temperature—no matter the season. Who needs a thermostat?

Because our weather is so exceptional year-round, we put a lot of time and care into our outdoor spaces. Flowers spill from planters, twinkle lights encircle the front porch columns, and a wood-burning chiminea adds extra warmth to the courtyard after sunset.

At dinnertime, gather in the hidden courtyard for a meal with your sweetheart or an intimate garden party with a couple of friends. Share a bottle of wine and a feast from the full kitchen at the dining table under dappled leaf cover.

The powerful nostalgia of the generously-sized, tin-roof-covered front porch invites you to stop and relax, sip lemonade, catch up on conversation, breathe some fresh air and take in the sweet mountain setting and sound of birdsong.

There's an iron patio set on the back patio that comfortably seats 4, and a rustic Mexican stamped-tin patio table that seats 2 on the sunset deck. On the front porch, enjoy an old fashioned rocker, vintage wicker settee, coffee table and club chair.

For a larger group, consider renting both Casa Encanta (main house) along with Casita Encanta (guest house). The casita sleeps 2 adults, and has 1 bedroom and 1 full bath. Please note, both the casa and the casita are designed as adults-only getaway spaces.

Since 2006, many sensitive improvements have been made by local artisans, including:

- Gas-fired fireplace with cantera limestone mantel and surround

- Vintage front porch columns

- Concrete kitchen countertops

- High-end Bertazzoni Italian professional gas range

- Multiple skylights

- Glass-walled conservatory (aka 'Arizona Room') in the garden, cleverly constructed of re-purposed vintage French doors as window walls

- Imported antique Mexican leaded glass double doors in bedroom

- Authentic Mexican saltillo floor tile in bathroom

- Mexican tile and glass block shower surround

- Vintage hardwood floors and rough pine ceiling beams and moldings

- And many more details to the delight the eye of old-house-lovers everywhere

Casa Encanta features:

- 2 Bedrooms, each with a comfy, inviting beds draped in carefully-curated luxurious linens

- 1 conservatory / 'Arizona Room'

- 1 full bathroom with bidet and custom Mexican tile and glass block shower

- Super-efficient gas fireplace provides ambience and ample warmth

ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD

'Patagonia is an eclectic, funky, little artisan town that loves to be discovered.'

Step back... to a place steeped in the mining, ranching, and railroad history that built the West. Step back to a place where residents share stories at the post office and local businesses are still owned by local people... no traffic signals and no chain stores.

The town of Patagonia is appropriately proud of its history and distinctive character. The community is quirky, warm and funky and likes it that way. Patagonia is filled with a surprising diversity of eccentric, creative, neighborly folks from all walks of life embodying a distinct 'Live and Let Live' feeling, while loving and celebrating what makes Patagonia so authentically itself.

Situated at just over 4,000 feet elevation, between the Santa Rita Mountains and the Patagonia Mountains, our village is nestled in the lush, extraordinarily bio-diverse riparian corridor of Sonoita Creek.

The area’s scenic beauty and unique ecology boast the greatest diversity of plant and animal species to be found in the continental United States.

With its' favorable climate and a growing colony of artisans and artists, Patagonia is a soft, colorful spot in which to land and explore. Birders, fishermen and hikers share the streets with shoppers looking for that perfect and unique gift -- and everyone revels in the delightful year-round weather.
