About Pam Liberty

Pam is a family law attorney and mediator, mother to two and stepmom to two more. She loves hiking, running and the beauty of the desert. She looks forward to acquainting you with the "must-do" list during your visit to the Sonoran Desert.

Pam Liberty purchased this house in 1994

Why Pam Liberty chose Arizona

I built this home when I was pregnant with my oldest (now in college) because of the peaceful beauty of the location. While close to town, this home is out in the unspoiled desert, surrounded by saguaros and mesquite. The solar heated pool and Coleman hot tub, hidden in an outcropping of natural rock, will be waiting for you when you get home. You can sit on the porch swing and watch the lights of downtown and the UA begin to sparkle as the sun sets. Look for wildlife of all desert varieties.

What makes this house unique

This home has been lovingly cared for and was built to maximize city views. It was constructed with 16-inch mud adobe block, has 13 feet ceilings, dyed cement floors and viga ceilings. It is a true Santa Fe with beehive fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom. There is a bonus media room for TV and Netflicks after a busy day. Tucson has been rated the best cycling city in America by Cyclist Magazine and Adobe Ranch is locate on a popular biking route and within biking distance of awe-inspiring mountain and road bike trails. The weather is hot in the summer and temperate year round. Tucson still has not lost its Old West feel. The pool is surrounded by colorful, low-water desert shrubbery such as lantana and bougainvillea. There is a ramada on the highest part of the land for an evening cocktail. You will definitely see desert wildlife, including coyote, roadrunners, javelina, quail and hawks.

Wonderful stay in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pam for having such a great property available. This is a really fine place to come and enjoy the beauty of Tucson. Close to town, a pool, and a great Spa. We really enjoyed our time and look forward to visiting again next year. If you like being in the foothills outside of town this is the place for you and your family.

A real southwestern Treasure

  • 5 of 5

It's not often that one gets to stay in a real southwestern Adobe, let alone one that offers modern conveniences. It's hard to pin down but architecturally this house is a gem where everything feels real. This is like a resort, really. Private, cool, calming, and very comfortable. The pool area is really well done, someone spent a lot of time getting this right. We stocked up on food and felt not much reason to leave - the perfect escape. Pamela was gracious when we contacted her and the whole experience felt like we were well taken care of. It was a wonderful three days that could have been a week, maybe it was - we kind of lost track to be honest. Thank you!

Amazing Weekend Getaway!

My husband and I took a long weekend away from Phoenix to unwind and relax and the Romantic Adobe home was the perfect place. The home is warm, welcoming, relaxing, and has everything you need. We highly recommend staying at the Romantic Adobe!

Lovely house amongst the cacti

  • 4 of 5

We were so glad we decided to stay here near Gate's Pass. It was a great location- near to Speedway and downtown, and also near to Desert Museum and the sunsets at Gate's Pass. The house was super clean and had everything that we needed. The pool was big, clean, and cooled us off in the hot weather. We loved the adobe style of the house and furnishings. Great place to stay and highly recommended! Pam was great at communicating from start to finish- thanks for sharing your place!
