We are Becky and Michael O'Connor, and we've been sharing our world with visitors and guests since the summer of 1987. Wow, that's 30 years now! It hardly seems that long, but it is. Time really does fly by when you're following your passion and living out your dreams! Looking back over the years since 1987, we can see that while our venue and our vision changed several times, the focus and mission of our hosting businesses remains the same: To provide our guests with access and connection to Nature in as much comfort as possible. We are delighted to provide that to our guests at Casitas de Gila Guesthouses!
