Everything that others are raving about this B &B is true. It is an experience that cannot be put into words. I had seen the reviews and had been planning to visit this place for a year and I am so glad I could go with my family. One place checked off my bucket list. We stayed at Paca de...

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...

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.

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.

“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.”
