Looking for an individual(s) who is/are comfortable in a semi-remote location (7 minutes from local town) yet in a private 3,000 acre pasture.  Historic cattle ranch (but NO ranching duties involved).  Wonderful, cozy (3BR/2BA, 1900sqft) home, 1 mile dirt driveway off paved Hwy 83,  6 mi South of SONOITA, AZ, 50 mi SE of Tucson; on 3,000 acres of beautiful rolling ranch grasslands, dotted with OAK trees.  Not a home in sight (nearest neighbors are 1+ mile away, completely out of view). 2 great dogs: sweet, sweet girl, Paisley, an Alaskan Malamute, 100 lbs + 3 y/o German Shepard nervous-nelly and very sweet as well.  NO CATS, NO SMOKING. 5,000 ft elevation offers temperate daytime temperatures and cool evenings in the summer. (No cooling in home). Local vineyards & wineries. The Mountain Empire of Southern Arizona offers a unique terrain & spectacular vistas/ scenery, ideal year-round climate. PRIVACY.   18 miles to Patagonia, an artists/writers hamlet;  40 miles to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico;  20 miles to Parker Canyon Lake; 50 miles to Tucson.  SECLUDED, QUIET homesite, miles of hiking & bike riding. Nearest neighbor is 1+ mile away.

Amazing hiking/bicycling trails right out the door. 


PAISLEY:  she's 3 yrs happy, a rescue gal,Alaskan Malamute, who loves running free, playing with cows, chasing anything that moves!  Paisley can run free because she stays home. She's a big, fur making machine all 100 lbs! She sleeps all night in the house (in the Great Room) and spends most of her days outside.  She's very calm and collected. 

LOBO:  3 y/o German Shepard rescue who is very timid but super sweet & affectionate.  He's a "runner" so must be carefully accompanied on leash from dog yard to house. He can't be let outside off leash unless in the big fenced dog yard.  He sleeps in the house, in the laundry room. 

Lovely patio w/big potted flowers that require daily watering (if no rain) in the late Spring - Summer * takes about 30 min total; however in winter no flowers, no watering chores.   

Super sonic StarLink satellite internet; Big curved screen HG TV; "Dish" TV.  All porcelain tile floors;  jetted jacuzzi tub in Guest Bath; Fireplace in Living Room;  Gourmet kitchen.  Beautiful  covered patio dining.  Never had cats or smoking.  

I'm looking for someone to keep the home fires burning and keep Paisley + Lobo company. They're accustomed to me being gone daily 8-12 hrs, which time they spend in a big fenced yard.  You'll have your freedom to take "day trips" to Bisbee, Tubac, Tucson, Nogales (AZ + MX - bring your passport if you want to go to MX).  Hiking, biking, kayaking, gallery + cafe + winery hopping, wine tasting ... too many fantastic options ... or enjoy the beautiful & placid view from my patio and read a good book or write, make art.  Watch movies, I have HBO, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and all the local channels (Tucson).

“ Wonderful sit! ”

This was an absolutely wonderful sit!  Paisley is certainly on my short list of favorite dogs to stay with.... gentle, affectionate, quiet and independent... she's the perfect dog!  Anne was very generous, making sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed;  also accommodating regarding arrival/departure dates.  And I also can't say enough about her home... super quiet, spacious and comfortable and with fabulous views in all directions; not another home in sight.  I would not hesitate to return for another stay!

“ Great sit ”

Sit Dates Jan-30-22 - Feb-7-22 Sitter ashlynteal, Member Since Sep-7-20

Sitting for Anne and Gustavo in Sonoita was beautiful and relaxing! Anne communicates quickly and efficiently, and I never felt intimated to ask any questions. The house is very comfortable and located within a large natural space perfect for quiet and solitude. 

Gustavo is a big heart who loves companionship and taking short walks around the property to find some proper mischief. He is very easy going and loving. I doted on him the whole time I was there! :D

I would recommend this sit for anyone that enjoys quiet, natural spaces and some time to just be.
