If you are looking for a retreat, this is it! The area is about 17 miles from the nearest small store (and cell coverage) and the WIFI is spotty. The apartment is clean, cozy, filled with books and travel info. The hiking/walking trails in the area course though gently rolling hills of the Coronado National Forest and the ranch borders a nature preserve. At over 5000 ft, in December it was cold at night but perfect during the day for hiking. I spent 8 days there and each day explored a different route. Jody lives next door and she quickly took care of my concerns (i.e. reading light not working).

This was a quaint apartment that was very remote, which was nice! It was fairly close to the wineries, which was the reason for our trip. You literally feel like you are right in the mountains and you can’t beat the front porch. We enjoyed our stay!

Our stay at Jody's ranch apartment was nearly perfect! Jody was incredibly prompt and thorough in communicating with us prior to our arrival, and she gave us very detailed directions to her property. The location of her ranch was super convenient for us, as my son is stationed on Fort Huachuca, which is only about 20-25 minutes away. Jody was an exceptional hostess and even allowed me to use her home phone line to communicate with my son, as cell service is sketchy at the ranch. We had use of the small, but adequate, kitchen in the apartment to make a home-cooked meal for my son for Thanksgiving. Jody was a life-saver when she kindly shared with us a couple of eggs and some flour which we needed to finish cooking our meal! The apartment is really delightful, with charming decor and books, books, books!! The scenery at the ranch is truly lovely...the beautiful high desert of southern Arizona is enchanting. And one of the greatest perks was being to have our beloved dog with us, and having a wide open space for him to wander at will. Overall, this airbnb experience was fantastic...Jody and her ranch is a diamond in the rough!!

What can I say about this amazing experience? Are you looking for a quiet spot to relax, unwind, and get back to nature? This is it! The apartment isn't attached to the main house and is far enough away to feel private. The furnishings are antique which just adds to the rustic ranch style stay. The covered porch was our favorite spot and our dogs loved watching the many cats that are on the property. The apartment had all the amenities: full kitchen (with everything you'd need to make a full meal), full bathroom with linens, small fans to add some circulation if you'd like, and yes, there is AC (I noticed in a previous post that there wasn't but Jody must've upgraded because there is now a window unit that supplies cool air, if wanted). Jody was an absolute delight to talk to and she gave us plenty of space to enjoy our ranch vacation. The location is great too. It's central to a lot of fun stuff to do during the day. Parker canyon lake isn't too far, wineries, patagonia lake, tombstone, bisbee, nogales. We went to all of them! It was such a great trip that we're considering moving to the area! Thank you Jody for sharing your wonderful piece of heaven!

What we experienced at Z Triangle Ranch was unexpected beauty. Arriving during the rainy season was a plus - the views were spectacular. We had front row seats to amazing sunrises, and beautiful ranch scenery. This was the perfect place to relax or hike for the day. The casita was very comfortable with all the necessities - coffee on the front porch while watching the sunrise was awesome. Hummingbirds zipping by were a treat as well as the array of birds singing in the morning. We will be planning for our return trip!

Jody was a terrific host with wonderful suggestions with what to do and see. Even though we've been to SE Arizona before, we had no idea this place existed. The casita is just what the pictures show with no surprises. You are surrounded by rolling hills and mountains. This made for a delightful weekend getaway and would definitely return.
