We stayed 3 nights at this cosy, welcoming Inn where the owner/innkeepers live on the property, entertaining their guests with tales of their travels & the wildlife that visits daily, and prepare one lavish breakfasts that are the perfect start to explore the nearby parks and museums and other local attractions. Several other guests when we were there were folks...

If you want a unique place to stay then this is your place! Off the main road in the Saguaro National Park you will be out with nature in the peaceful desert. Mike and Wayan are the most friendly hosts you will ever meet. They have stories as long as you have time. Every morning they would provide a different...

This place is an absolute gem. Mike and Wayan were wonderful hosts in every way, making us feel completely at home. The breakfasts were a great fusion of local and South-east Asian, constantly surprising, wholesome and very enjoyable, and the conversation was great. Our room, in a separate building, was clean and spacious, with a shared veranda overlooking the Sonoran...

Not much we can add to all the other glowing reviews. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Crickedhead Inn. The energy here from the love that Mike and Wayan put into this place rivals the desert surroundings which are unequaled anywhere else in the area. We can't wait to go back.

Wendy and i spent three wonderful days in January at the Crickethead Inn at the edge of the Saguaro National Park. For nature lovers, this is paradise on earth, surrounded by a lush, Sonoran desert landscape, with the Tucson Mountains looming in the near distance. You never have to leave the property to explore countless trails, including a broad, dry...

My partner and I stayed at the Crickethead Inn for 4 nights and had a marvelous time. Each morning was a treat to wake up and wonder what breakfast delights Wayan would prepare. Besides a fantastic food, breakfast included lively and entertaining conversation with hosts, Mike and Wayan. There is a lot of positive, happy energy at the Crickethead Inn....

Despite it being the busy gem show week in Tucson(didn't know when booked) the four of us were able to find lodging here; it was a full house! We were in the separate building with a Balinese wedding bed and pull out. The art, tile work, gardens, desert plant and animal life were inspirational. We especially loved watching the sunrise...

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Crickethead during our vacation to the southwest. The rooms are quaint, the breakfasts are tasty (Wayan's crepes are the best!) and Mike and Wayan are excellent hosts. We enjoyed watching the javalinas, quail, and skittish coyote come in for breakfast. The property butts right up to the park so it's easy to take...

The Crickethead Inn is the exact opposite of generic, sterile hotels. This owner-built inn is full of loving touches, beautiful artwork, and exotic furniture. Did I mention the setting, in the stunning Sonoran Desert? Each morning we heard mourning doves, curve-billed thrashers, and Gila woodpeckers. The saguaros, other cacti, ironwood, and palo verde trees were so beautiful. It's very quiet,...

We picked this place because we were coming up from San Carlos, Mexico to escape the noise and craziness of the Semana Santa weekend. It was an excellent choice. No traffic noise and full of wildlife and birds. Mike and Wayan are gracious hosts and the breakfasts were the best I have ever eaten at a B&B. Our room was...

“All the rooms are nice but ask for a room in the guest house instead of the main house. They're a little more private.”
