Casita Rentals at Biosphere 2
Casita Room Rental at Biosphere 2 is Exclusively Available for Arizona Dark Sky Star Party II Attendees
The historic Biosphere 2 is only 10 miles from Oracle State Park and offers some of the closest off-site accommodations for the ADSSP II attendees.
The Biosphere 2 conference village is comprised of rustic Santa Fe style casitas. Each Three-to-Five Bedroom Casita has communal living area, bathrooms, kitchen, and dining room. Casitas are equipped with WiFi, air conditioning, bed and bath linens, and bath amenities. We have bedrooms available on first-come, first served basis. Each bedroom rents for $512 for a four-night stay, *double occupancy (Check in September 21; Check out September 25).
*Double occupancy means that two people can share a room. So, if your group has 10 people you would rent 5 rooms if they all agree to group two people to a room.
Note that the Casitas at Biosphere 2 are dorm rooms, not hotel rooms. Rooms typically include bunk beds. Once rented, there are no options for changing rooms or early check-in nor late check out options, and there are no refunds or partial refunds. The facility does not offer daily maid service. What we can say is that the cost for renting a room for up to two people at the Biosphere 2 Casitas is a chance to stay on the Biosphere 2 grounds at a price that is in general much less than that of Tucson-area hotels.
Reservations. Your non-refundable purchase of nights in a casita MUST BE MADE through Explore Scientific. Biosphere 2 is not set up for the typical reservation system because it is not a hotel.
