This property is an old world hacienda which has been updated while maintaining its original charm. The courtyard offers many areas to sit, lounge and relax by the beautiful pool in a resort-like setting. A large cantina/games room is adjacent to the poolside area. We are located in the historic northwest end of Yuma, Arizona, about a mile from Old Towns restaurants, movie theatres and tourist attractions. We are also the closest Yuma location to Algodones, Mexico. Perfect for a relaxing get away, business headquarters, yet close enough to all Yuma has to offer. The guest-suite consists of two bedrooms that sleep 4. The rooms are detached from the main house and have private entrances. The rooms share one bath; however, there is an additional pool-side bathroom complete with shower. The suite opens towards the courtyard, pool, and beautiful grounds. A small efficiency kitchenette is located inside the cantina/game-room, which is a few feet away from the guest rooms.

Several Days in Luxury
Journeyed to Yuma AZ from the Palm Springs CA area to simply relax. Owner Barb was perfect, and so was our stay. The large compound was inspired and clean as could be. Very Southwestern feel to the place. Quiet. Continental breakfast. Only 2 rooms with a shared bath; another bath close by. We were the only guests, so no challenge whatsoever.
Thank you for the wonderful review. I enjoyed meeting you and I am happy you had a good time here in Yuma. Looking forward to your next visit. Warm regards. Barb
awesome awesome best place to stay
Simply the best
Dear Sandy and Todd,
Thank you for the wonderful review. It was lovely seeing you again. I look forward to your next visit.
Lovely hostess and lovely accommodations
I stayed here while attending the annual Yuma Art Symposium and enjoyed the peaceful oasis at Barb’s Home. She is a delightful and attentive host. The bed was so comfortable, it was too cool to swim this weekend but it was lovely to sit by the pool at the end of the day to relax. I look forward to my next stay.
Thank you for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure meeting you and getting to visit with your friends. I look forward to seeing you again.
Paradise in the city - an amazing hacienda and an amazing hostess!
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at the Mariposa Hacienda. Everything about the house and property is amazing. The rooms are beautiful, immaculate and comfy, the pool room/kitchen/bar are so much fun but our favourite part was just sitting outside by the pool, enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of our surroundings.
Barb is an incredible hostess (who has now become a friend) and goes above and beyond to make your stay is the best possible with so many thoughtful gestures. This has been by far the most wonderful VRBO experience and we highly recommend staying here.
FANTASTIC property and host!
This was the best overall VRBO property that we've visited in many years. It is even better than the pictures show. The room was very clean and bed soft and comfortable. The cantina/game room is fantastic! Lots of room to relax, watch TV, read, eat, shoot pool, etc. Same goes for the pool and deck area. The only downside was the pool was not heated. Probably great in warmer months, but a bit cold for us in February. We didn't use the indoor charcoal BBQ, but you could roast a small pig on it! The little kitchenette was perfect for making coffee in the morning; complete with Keurig and pods. We were the only guests therefore had the place to ourselves. In fact, there are only two rooms available for rent--often rented together as a 2-bdrm -- so the odds of all guests having the place to themselves is quite high.
But what makes this place truly special is the owner/host, Barb. She provides a full array of amenities, and would occasionally check with us to see if there was anything else we desired. Just one of those nice people that you enjoy chatting with. By the time we left, we considered her a friend--not just our host.
FYI: There is a great authentic Mexican bakery (Elvira's) just across the street. Wonderful pastries and breakfast burritos.
Dear Dan and Deb,
