Thank you for your interest in the Temporary Teepee.

Beautiful Accomodations in a Quiet Private Residence

Open During the Ideal Season October 15th thru April 30th Each Year


THE TEMPORARY TEEPEE is a guest house like no other. It distinguishes itself by offering superlative accommodations, impeccable service, and the most extraordinary gardens for total relaxation. It is not possible to adequately describe the  peace and absolute quiet that guests enjoy when they are literally surrounded by beds of flowers, rose bushes, bougainvillea, and citrus trees. Two waterfalls and a 35 foot meandering stream are music to all within earshot. At night the magnificent gardens transform into a wonderland as more than 25,000 LED lights of various colors illuminate the foliage.

 The “Teepee” currently offers two suites that each accommodate two people.
The colorful Hopi Suite is designed for extended stays, as well as a short stay hotel alternative. A casita type unit, the Hopi suite has its own private entrance that opens into a vestibule containing a wet bar. Adjacent is a nicely equipped kitchenette with a fully stocked refrigerator/freezer, microwave, blender, Keurig coffee maker, and dishes/flatware for those who wish to prepare their own meals. The living area has a queen size bed, dining area and casual chairs for conversation or watching the flat screen television. A mirrored vanity table with a very large lighted mirror and closet with extensive shelving is a favorite of the ladies. A well equipped private bathroom with shower is just off the bedroom.

 The very large and luxurious Zuni Suite is located pool side.. A king size accommodation with private entrance, the Zuni offers the latest in decorating style and provides every amenity one could want. A wet bar with refrigerator, dining area, and overstuffed chairs for relaxation offer all the comfort you desire. The large bathroom with double sink and huge tiled shower stall is well lighted. A sliding door closet is an adjunct to the large walk-in closet with space for hanging clothes as well as  drawers and shelves for personal articles.Just steps from the pool and the soothing 103 degree waters of the spa the Zuni Suite overlooks the beautiful crystal clear pool and exquisite gardens .

Reservation Request Form

All this is yours at the
Temporary Teepee.........................

Your day begins when you want it to.

Whenever you’re ready you can enjoy a bountiful breakfast pool side in the expansive flower garden.

After breakfast you may pursue your own agenda, play a  round of golf, visit the museum of Indian art, enjoy a 90 minute boat cruise on gorgeous Saguaro Lake, take part in any of the many activities that the Valley of the Sun has to offer, or just “veg”out in the rose garden.

If you wish to take a day trip to Sedona, or another scenic spot, a box lunch will be available to you for the asking.

Try to be “back home” for happy hour at 4PM. Wine and hors d’oeuvres are served in all of the many varied seating areas.

Should you require reservations for dinner, or some evening activity, the host / concierge will make them for you.

The end of the day is always enhanced by some well spent  time in the soothing 103 degree waters of the spa. While you relax in the warm whirlpool, you may sip cognac, Kahlua and coffee, or whatever else strikes your fancy at that moment.

A restful sleep will be yours.  You’ll gently drift off to dreamland nestled in the luxury of silver cloud bedding topped by a comforter filled with just the right amount of fabled Hungarian goose down.

In the morning you will want to wake up and do it all again.
It was a perfect day at the Temporary Teepee,
and that bears repeating..........................
