Der Wohnraum

My home looks out at the Spanish Colonial Revival style plaza in Ajo's historic center, one of the most beautiful plazas in N. America. Ajo is a small former copper mining town located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert and is entirely surrounded by public lands: Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Refuge (Edward Abbey's former stomping grounds), the Tohono O'odham Indian Nation, BLM lands. You can literally be out in the wild within a couple minutes of this home in lush, quintessential saguaro-studded desert. BLM backroads lead into Cabeza Prieta, the nations 2nd largest wildlife refuge. Ajo is 40 miles north of the border, just 100 miles from Puerto Penasco at the head of the Sea of Cortez. Excursions abound.

Ajo is architecturally unique in that its historic heart is still intact and was modeled on the City Beautiful movement in 1914. Many of its homes and public buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Curley School has been refurbished into artist studios and apartments. Ajo's friendly residents are bound by love of their community and the surrounding desert.

This Spanish Colonial Revival style home was built in 1916, has a large comfortable "great room," and is beautifully furnished with Mexican furuniture. You can step out at night and see the Milky Way! (Ajo is minimally lit with an eye to night skies). Javelina often trot down the street at dusk and coyote are heard nightly. Ajo is one of only 65 towns in the country that have been designated National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat. Birds abound and are your morning wake-up call.

This 1400 sq/ft home has a spacious and well-appointed kitchen, an outdoor gas grill, and a Southwestern library of guidebooks, maps, natural history, and non-fiction books to assist you on your explorations. It is 110 miles from Phoenix, 130 from Tucson, a beautiful desert drive on a quiet two-lane with Kitt Peak National Observatory and the Tohono O'odham Cultural Center along the way. Many people have referred to Ajo as a well-kept secret.

This place is a real gem that is conveniently located near Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Since it is in the historic center of the tiny town of Ajo, I was a bit worried that it would be too noisy. However, it was actually very quiet. It was nice being able to wander over t…

Anita's Ajo home is a great value! The accommodations were super clean and comfortable, the location is quiet and private, and the all important air conditioner (temperatures were over 100 degrees) quietly kept the house very comfortable. There is also the most complete kitchen I…

We (5 adults) were in town for a remodel project on a family home, so this was not our first visit to Ajo. The location was perfect, just steps away from the historic, and picturesque plaza, shops, restaurants, and other sites. This home met all of our needs, it is spacious, com…

I love the spacious, uncluttered landscapes of desert and tundra. I also have a cabin on the boundary of Denali National Park in Alaska and feel fortunate to live in two beautiful places which, though they seem opposites, are actually very similar in that they are both extreme e…
