Nice place
Very clean, well maintained property. Friendly hosts and very communicative. They do have rules but they are for clarity and for the safety and so all campers can enjoy the property.

Would not entirely recommend.
We give this site 2.5 out of 5. 1.5 for the hot tub and 1 for the full hook up. We stop there for two reasons: 1. Rules, rules rules. No lights from your RV, Travel Trailer, etc after it gets dark. We like playing cards, relaxing after sun goes down, but cannot. Reason given: people want to stargaze. However, floodlights from house and workroom and ground lights on property lit up the whole place. 2. no guests allowed. We would have enjoyed an evening dinner with friends, but no go. Michelle and Jeff nice people, but we felt we were under their watchful eyes most of the time. J. Goodrich

It is a very clean and tidy little hobby farm in a rural desert community that feels far from the big city. I was there for a short overnight trip to test some camping equipment but it would have been pleasant to stay longer and take advantage of the amenities.

I loved camping/parking my van at Michele and Jeff’s place. Loved meeting their animals and learning more about their farm. The jacuzzi was also so relaxing and fun after a week hiking. Would recommend staying with them!

Great view - No visitors allowed.
The spot was nice and the hosts were good. I was sad I was not allowed to bring my daughter (who lives in Phoenix) to our camp site to visit, which was the whole reason we traveled to Arizona. She lives in a small apartment with a roommate and it made visiting awkward. If I had known, we would not be allowed to have visitors, I would have went elsewhere. The space was quite. The no lights at night was kind of weird, but understandable. Otherwise, if you are looking for a quiet getaway near Phoenix, this is your spot. The hosts were very friendly.

Did not meet minimum expectations.
Host advised via text, "We're out visiting my parents so if you want to check in later that would work better for tonight." GPS navigation provided an ETA of 7:55 PM, but we did not arrive until 8:35 PM despite traveling directly to the host's property. Host texted, "Ugh! You told me 7:55." Negative tone and responses from host via text and upon arrival made us feel unwelcome. While we understand the aim to keep the area "dark sky" compliant, host wanted us to park our Winnebago camper van without using the headlights in the dark. Host should consider installing downward facing, low to the ground lights to aid in safe movement after nightfall. Listing states, "Campsite offers partial hook-up and is tucked away in a cluster of Palo Verde trees" but upon arrival we were directed to park directly in the roadway that is inside the property. Pictures on listing are lovely but do not accurately capture the tiny island next to area we were directed to park next to. We were advised we could use the small island with a metal table and chairs, with a view of the back side of the coop. This is nothing like what we anticipated based on the images in the listing. Be sure to read full set of extensive rules before booking. We chose to stay at a Cracker Barrel parking lot rather than be uncomfortable and remain at this hipcamp which would require that we depart by 10 AM. We requested that the host cancel the booking and that request was rejected.

Check this place out!
We stayed 2 nights in our camper van and had a wonderful peaceful experience. Michelle is super gracious, and has set up a lovely outdoor area to enjoy, get a fresh cup of coffee, and a night under the stars in the hot tub was a real treat. Nice to get out of the city! And our pups loved it too :)

Arizona star gazing retreat
This is a spacious, comfortable spot to stay. We used this as a home base for daily outings to Scottsdale which was about 45 minutes away. It was great to explore the city in the day and return to our getaway in the evening. Michele and Jeff were gracious and informative.

So very nice.
Where to start? First off, we would love to stay there again! We were not too far from Peoria Spring Training games. Michele runs an immaculate HipCamp for tents and trailers. The location is quiet and beautiful. I took a liking to the landscape, lots of different 🌵, plants and birds.Michele and Jeff were the perfect hosts. Although we are not hottubbers (new word😉), she has a smart and fair sign up system for those who are. Use of their hacienda style veranda was a favorite experience of mine while we were there. The hosts and the campers were most respectful. I nominate this site for Hipcamp of the year for Arizona!

Great stay… definitely recommend
We stayed for only a short time (two nights), but the hosts were great - as were the camp site amenities (full hook ups, incredible outdoor kitchen, hot tub, etc). Also, great cell service on Verizon and AT&T - for those digital nomads working from the road.

Michele’s land was a great place to stay. It is extremely clean and nice. The nights were quiet (except for nature sounds) which we loved. The lighting is minimal, so the stars are in full view at night! The hosts have worked hard on this site, and it really shows. Thank you Jeff and Michele for all you did to make our visit so perfect. Highly recommended!!!

Mountain View Retreat-Luxury Tent
A lovely serene experience!
We really loved the enchanting property of Micheles! We stayed in the tent and were able to use the outdoor kitchen. They supply; grilling utensils, silverware, plates, glasses and are very accommodating! Bring your own charcoal and some apples to feed the goats! Don’t be intimidated by the grill, it’s easy to use and was my favorite part of the stay. We finished dinner while watching the sunset behind the mountains, enjoyed the hot tub and made out way to the tent. It was a very comfortable sleep with a variety of pillows. I would highly recommend staying here as we loved it!

Desert Delight
Michele’s land is tucked away in desert serenity. Listen to the howl of coyotes at night and the songs birds during the day. Check in was easy and the facility very clean and well maintained. Highly recommended- for a quiet peaceful getaway, yet close to big city amenities.

My friend and I came across this place somewhat late and needed a place to crash for the night. Michele quickly responded and even accommodated us to use the jacuzzi for a lil while after it’s closed. The property is absolutely beautiful and it’s such a treat to be able to wake up to the cutest dogs and goats while drinking coffee that they provide. If you’re passing through it’s a treat to stay here.

Amazing stay with hot tub! Loved it
We loved staying at Michele’s! Beautiful, safe, cozy and welcoming environment. She and her husband were extremely accommodating and friendly. Great amenities and the hot tub was amazing! Everything was clean, well organized and easy to access. Cute farm animals and two friendly dogs they keep behind fence just in case, for visitors peace of mind. Great little respite for the night. I can’t see how anyone would leave anything less than a great review for such accommodating and responsive hosts. We would absolutely recommend to anyone and we will be coming again!

Airstream dreaming w Mountain Views
WONDERFUL stay at Casa Sabrosa. We stayed in our airstream and loved using the outside table/ chairs as well as the common area grill! Very peaceful and quiet with beautiful views of the mountain. A perfect combination of amenities from a campsite (full hookups, wifi) with the space, natural landscape of state park camping. Excellent communication in advance confirming wifi would be strong enough to work and also during our stay with local recommendations. Surprised this isn’t in the Top HipCamps for Arizona - it should be!

Site not level, or private, rules!!
My perspective: The good: clean hot tub, hostess makes great chocolate chi cookies The Facts: the chicken coop site is NOT level and after adding 4 leveling blocks under both front tired of two vans (one set provided by host) both vans still not level. Chicken coop site has numerous trip hazards: rocks demarcating driveway from ‘yard’, piles of raked up gravel, lanterns near guide-wires, etc. These canNOT be seen after dusk with the chicken coop lights (which light 1/4 of the site being the portion closest to the chicken coop, furthest from vehicle. Hostess refused use of van light for safety 6-9pm. Chicken coop site is NOT private. Between 5 and 7 pm, 5 sets of people with dogs walked through the ‘private’ site plus host. Chicken coop site advertised as having electricity via extension cord. True but electricity is 20 (not 30) amp and outlet/plug in does not meet code. (Multiple plugs/timer/adapters going into outlet.) Chickens include 4 roosters learning to vocalize. Hostesses def of dark sky lighting includes sky facing lights on trees. (Per litecentric: How to modify your lighting to be dark sky lighting-friendly: Adjust positioning: Point your exterior lights to face down towards the ground.) Hostess def of dark sky lighting: no led lights. (Per litecentric: Opt for narrow-spectrum or low-color-temperature LED bulbs ...) Your dog is in violation of rules if he barks at people traipsing through his ‘private’ campsite, or barks at chickens

It was fine it's a small space and they are just getting the place together. It was quiet and the couple are very nice. Backing into the driveway was a challenge even with directions from the hubby. But once set up it was fine

Wonderful piece of Arizona pie. The hot tub was nice and hot and under the sunset perfect. I love how you book your private time in the hot tub! Excellent idea. I love the wonderful glamping amenities. The cute goats you get to pet and funny chickens made us smile, Michele was so very sweet and nice. Loved 🥰
