Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Willcox - THE EARTH HOUSE

Secluded 2 bedroom, 2 bath with 360 degree rural mountain views and high desert


Experience 360 degrees of incredible mountain views in this authentic adobe home on 10 acres of natural high desert.

Unbelievable peace, quiet and tranquility await. In early evening, you will hear the yap of the coyote. In early morning, you will see Jack Rabbits and Cottontail hop across the front yard. Road Runners, Hawks and even White Owls cam be observed on or near the property. If you look closely under the Mesquite, you will see the elusive and, in some areas, endangered Horned Toad.

In this big sky country, you are guaranteed to see falling stars and, on some evenings, the Mikey Way.

There are stunning desert sunsets and sun rises in red, blues and pinks, blues and grays. In the morning, you can observe the moon dip behind the mountains.

You can visit the breathtaking Chiricahua National Monument, Kartchner Caverns, the wild west re-creations in famed Tombstone, Old Bisbee - the artist haven and old copper mining town, Cochise Stronghold of famed Apache Chief Cochise , Amerind Museum, Bowie National Historic Site, Ft Graham Observatory and more. But please plan to spend some time in the Historic Willcox with its famed cowboy museums.

The Earth House, with its proximity to so many area sites, is the perfect place to stay for those who enjoy birding, antiquing, archaeology, rock hounding, hiking, our Native American and cowboy history or just serenity.

Willcox has a famous cowboy history with museums and hosts wine tasting in several locations in town. If, during your visit, you desire the culture that only a big city can afford, Tucson is just a short drive down I-10.

The Earth House will provide you a unique vacation experience as the home itself is a creative work of art.

Note: This vacation home is located in a rural community and does not come with the many amenities of larger cities. It has both the charm and the downside of a rural environment. Therefore, being a nature lover is a must to enjoy your stay.

About Pamla Paris

I grew up in North Florida and obtained my BA & MBA from Troy State University. My career took me to Charleston, SC and then to the Memphis.TN area. Following retirement, I returned to my Gulf Breeze, FL home. I have two dogs, "Missy" a mixed breed, and "Dingo", a true Dingo. They love chasing the desert rabbits - truly an exercise in futility. It took five years to complete construction of The Earth House. It is a true, vs fake or "burnt", adobe house. Each 12"x 14" x 4" adobe block that went into the making of this home was made on site with desert sand and stabilizing concrete. Visiting The Earth House is my time to get away from the hustle and bustle of city living, to visit my desert friends and to enjoy the outstanding nature, sunrises and sunsets.

Pamla Paris purchased this house in 2010

Why Pamla Paris chose Arizona

This craftsman's beauty cannot not be found in a typical American home. It will make your stay a unique experience.

What makes this house unique

The home is enchanting with its tongue and groove ceiling, large vigas and adobe construction. It is in a quiet, remote, peaceful setting yet close enough to see the big city lights of Tucson and/or to tour the western sites.

If you enjoy American history and hiking the adobe home is a great place to stay. Spacious, clean and quiet.

Friendly neighbors and the residents in the town of Willcox offer many suggestions for site seeing and hiking. We enjoy our 2 month stay.

Lovely Home in Lovely Setting

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a lovely, well-built, spacious and nicely decorated abode home. It is located well outside of town on a gravel road. Although there are neighbors, it still has an isolated feel to the location and a great place to view the stars and see various critters in the yard such as road runners, lizards, and jack rabbits. The owner is a gracious and very helpful host. There are many interesting features that you can drive to during the day, including the Chiricahua National Monument. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

This was actually my second trip to this property. The first last Feb. Had to be cut short due to medical problems. Pam, our gracious hostess, allowed us to come back and use the 2 weeks that we had not been able to use in Feb. at no charge. What a great gesture. Thanks again Pam.

Beautiful with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! Home is incredibly beautiful. You won't find another place like this one. Be prepared to bring groceries and dine in. Suggest the owners put a futon in the Master Bedroom. It is so large, there is room and would give extra bed for more visitors to stay. Very peaceful & safe.

This small 'Old West' town is full of history with local museums and old buildings. It was the home to the Earp's of famed Wyatt Earp as well as Rex Allen, the 'singing cowboy'. Several local wineries offer wine tastings including the Coronado Vineyards. Within driving distance is Chiricahua National Monument, Cochise Stronghold, Tombstone, Old Bisbee (Named America's #1 Best American Small Historic Town), Patagonia Lake, Kirchner Caverns, Amerind Museum in the Dragoon Mountains and Ft Graham Observatory. There are fun events throughout the year in Willcox and in surrounding Cochise County, such as birding, antiquing, Old West shoot-out re-enactments, rodeos, antique car shows, rock climbing, museums and other annual festivals such as the Rex Allen Festival, Art Festival, Willcox Wine Tasting Festival and "Wings over Willcox". Recommended activities are in my photo lineup. But the best thing about your stay will be the quiet, peaceful environment surrounding The Earth House; the beautiful sun rises and sun sets over the surrounding mountains, big sky at night, the evening yap of the coyote, rabbits hopping across the property and birds galore.
