Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a modern house in center of Historical landmark town. . Living room has high ceiling and real wood-burning fireplace. Beautiful patio accessed from living room through 12' opening bi-fold doors.The two bedrooms have French doors opening to the patio so when everything is open, outside and inside seem to merge. Bedrooms and bathrooms are in two separate wings of house that affords extra privacy when two couples are staying. The view from the patio is towards downtown and looks directly at the mountains, particularly the iconic 'B' mountain which is straight ahead. Downtown is a 5min walk, max. There are about 12 gentle wide steps to the property. There is off street parking for two compact cars.

The house is built of Rastra and the walls are 11' thick which offers good insulation; AC in one bedroom only. Each bedroom has its own bathroom close by.

The town has good restaurants and bars in short walking distance from house in both directions, about 200 yards, 5 min walk. Two food stores, Mimosa's and High Desert Market just a few minutes walk away.

House particularly affordable because only extra charge is State Tax, no Homeaway fee, No cleaning charge, No damage deposit, no pet fee, Minimal cancellation fee at any time after booking($60).

Pay no attention to the VRBO "Response rate" of 50% and response time several days. I always respond to everyone within a few hours. Those low figures are because I have often replied to personal email addresses rather than through the site. In future I'll always do through site to get my numbers up.

Also, you may see a VRBO "warning" at the top of my listing, warning you that I don't take online bookings so you are not covered for problems. "This owner doesn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout. You won't be eligible for our Book with Confidence Guarantee.Never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram. Learn more"

The reality is that I refund money up to the full amount for problems, my reviews are witness to my honest dealing. I've tried to stop them from putting up this notice, but to no effect.

cedric shackleton purchased this house in 2008

Why cedric shackleton chose Arizona

I've had vacation homes in this town for 35 years and love it because of it history, weather and physical beauty. The town is nestled in a valley of the Mule mountains. It's a liberal oasis in a generally conservative area

What makes this house unique

Biking, hiking, birding. Hanging out in local restaurants and bars. Enjoy the artist galleries. Bisbee is the friendliest of towns with active social scene.

Great home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house has a really smart floorplan with the two bedrooms at opposite ends of the house. The living/dining area has great windows and access to a courtyard-like patio. The house was clean and very conveniently located a short walk into town. If I'm back this way I will definitely see if the house is available for my stay. I highly recommend it.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four stayed over the long holiday weekend and found this vacation rental simply perfect. Mr. Shackleton has put quite a bit of thought into the details of this dwelling in order to make it feel like home. The location could not be better giving almost immediate access to the Old Historic Bisbee downtown area and all the charm that offers! The house itself was skillfully prepared to offer a variety of satisfying amenities from the gorgeous morning sunrise views to the soothing hot tub after days of trekking up and down through the hills, side streets, and nearby haunts! The layout of the house itself ensures privacy for the guests as well as very comfortable common areas for relaxing and enjoying this special little town! Our group cannot wait to return and we will definitely make a serious effort to stay at this location!

Beautifully Restored, with Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Bisbee - having a great place to stay helped a lot.

House is high up and centrally located. Patio is private with a view of the hills and of Old Town. The house has been beautifully restored and is very well- insulated. We found it to be comfortable at 100 F. without air conditioning. Kitchen is modern and complete. Separate wings give maximum privacy possible. An easy walk to main street.

The owner provided complete and clear instructions, and was very gracious.

We have no complaints at all, and are happy to give 5 stars.

great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I so enjoyed my time here at Cedrics' rental.The house is easy walking distance to town.(even with my recovering knee surgery).Only a couple steps to the front door,and a 2 car spot off the street.The best part for me was the folding glass doors that opened from the living room and bedrooms onto a very nice patio with a view.I will come again and stay longer next time. This house will not disappoint.
