Saguaro SKP Co-Op in Benson, AZ just after 2 PM.
|300 Series Sites|
Another difference in this Co-Op from the ones we've visited thus far are the allowance of "casitas". These can be up to 288 sq. ft. with an additional 200 sq. ft. under a patio. The units are allowed to have water, electric, and sewer inside, but residents are not allowed to "live" in these units and there must be an RV on site for living. (This is due to the type of local zoning requirements for the type of park.)
Some of the casita owners are quite creative with their designs. There are many different buildings in the park.
Some of the spaces inside include a general meeting and dining area, a room for playing billiards, a puzzle room, a library containing books and videos, and a stage for shows.
I'm spending a bit more blog space on describing and showing different facilities at this park because we're actually thinking about adding our name to the "waiting list" here. We like the infrastructure of the park, but we really like the friendly people. We met a couple, Betssy and Tom, a few months ago at the Sutherlin, OR SKP Co-Op who told us that they have a leased lot here in Benson and that they would be back for the winter months. When we checked in on Friday, we were a bit saddened to find out that they weren't here. Well, guess who showed up on Saturday! They are a super nice couple and Betssy was on the "welcome" committee in Sutherlin and the first person we met there.
The Saguaro Co-Op is not our place for "wintering over" this year, however. Mainly because we've already made reservations for Nov. 1st thru Feb. 1st, and also because during the winter months the Co-Op will be full with leaseholders and it would be a bit tough to get a FHU site for any length of time. We'll be moving at the end of the week to that location. Stay tuned!
Thanks again for stopping by to take a look.
