About Sarah Swan


My parents built this special space. I grew up nearby and we have lived here our whole lives. I live in Cancun mexico,with my husband, has our first daughter and realized we had to be close to my parents.. so we live in the kiva until we had our 2nd child and then we outgrew the space.

Sarah Swan purchased this bungalow in 35

Why Sarah Swan chose Desert View

This is amazing, a little small to live in all the time, which gave me the idea to make it a vacation rental.

Its one of a kind..

What makes this bungalow unique

This is a octagon shaped home, that is partially built underground. The upper half is all windows that look out into the beautiful AZ sky. The sleeping loft is on ground level so when you wake up you have your own little nature show. This home is on its one 1/4 acre, with a private drive. Super peaceful and secure.

Loved the Kiva!

  • 5 of 5

This place fit our needs perfectly. My wife and I were visiting my sister and her family in the Cave Creek area and this place was minutes away! Sarah is very easy to work with. When we arrived, the Kiva was ready and clean. We slept in the loft. There is a fan up there so it keeps it cool while your sleeping. Very quiet location. We had coffee on the patio in the morning...a drink on the patio in the evening...just beautiful! Highly recommend. We will stay here again.

Great place with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We chose this VRBO because it was very close to some friends we were visiting. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. It was very clean and quiet. Owner was easy to work with and the entire transaction was smooth! Thank you again, Sarah!

Magical Spot in the Chapparal

  • 5 of 5

If you love the desert, if you love birds, if you love sunrises at eye level out of your loft window, well this magical Kiva will completely charm you. Aside from the overall uniqueness of a Kiva, the decor is very artful, rustic and modern. It appears to be newly remodeled. The host keeps it immaculate, has well-stocked the kitchen and provides top-shelf linens. If my husband and I hadn't had events planned, we would have been content to sit on the "patio" that is offset from the Kiva for most of the day since the weather was cool. We were amazed at the variety of birds and other critters including a bobcat! Best thing that happened was the sighting of a bright red tanager. Only caveat is that unless you want to sleep on the fold out couch, you need to be prepared to climb a steep ladder to access the loft. (We loved

that part!) A/C worked great, there was a fan in the loft and a great reading lamp. The mattress was super comfortable. All good! And Lord willing, we'll be back very often.
