About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The 'Bisbee Adobe' is located a short walk from the historic mining town of Bisbee, AZ. With an Elevation of approximately 5300', this quaint little town has some of Arizona's best year round climate.

The 'Bisbee Adobe' was originally built as a rooming house for miners around 1898. The last known tenants were in 1947. The renovation of the building was painstakingly done by a local contractor who did an incredible job and was completed in Aug. 2008.

From the period antiques, reproduction stove and the private coziness the Adobe offers is a very unique experience. With the private porch nestled within the mature oak trees gives the feeling of being in a tree house. Enjoy dinner outside or have a relaxing cup of coffee in the morning. The 'Bisbee Adobe' is configured as a duplex. The lower level is a long term rental and the upstairs is the short term unit which is completely furnished as described. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with a trundle bed (2 singles). The Bathroom is accessible from a common hallway.

Great stay in Bisbee

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at the Bisbee Adobe and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The apartment is tastefully decorated and has all the comforts of home. The location is close enough to downtown to be an easy walk without being right in the center of all activity. Beautiful 2nd floor porch for enjoying the pleasant Arizona weather.

We had great recommendations from the owners as to where to find the best restaurants and other activities in the area.

Darlene was great with communications and very responsive.

A positive experience all around.

Location is a mile away from downtown. A lovely walk downhill and you can take the Bisbee Bus back uphill for .50/seniors. Great neighbors and neighborhood. Owners are caring, friendly and always available. Stayed for over two weeks! ❤

We could have sat out on that verandah enjoying the beautiful weather and frequent rain indefinitely

  • 4 of 5

This was our first experience using VRBO, and we were very satisfied overall. Everything regarding making the reservation was a snap, and the host couple were very accommodating when we needed to delay our stay. It's so much nicer having a kitchen and a couple of rooms rather than the typical one-room hotel accomadation. There were a couple of house issues that popped up needing attention, but Steve & Darlene saw to them right away.

The house is not right in downtown Bisbee, which we liked. Things were a little quieter, and it was just a nice walk to get down to the shops and restaurants and all. Also, the long-term renter downstairs is very quiet and very nice; hopefully we didn't disturb her! Also, some places in Bisbee can have issues with parking, but the Adobe has a spot for you right in front of the house.

All-in-all, we love Bisbee,and enjoyed our 2-week stay at the Adobe. And we think most anyone would feel the same!
