Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday estate in Tubac - Los Pajaro's - (The Bird's)

Two Master Bedrooms, Two Master Baths, 3 Fireplaces, Horse Facilities

Once a former Dude Ranch, Hacienda Los Pajaro's is now available as a vacation rental. Hard to believe it was once a one room homesteaders cabin with an outhouse. Over the years it has grown into a 2,466 sq. ft. estate it is today, maintaining it's original charm and historical integrity.

Bring your own horse and ride out on the trails or hunt in style while staying on this 18 acre, mesquite studded rolling hills, secluded estate fit for John Wayne. Enjoy the wonderful climate Southern, Arizona has to offer and ride out on State and Federal lands for what feels like unending miles. You will be staying in the main head quarters ranch house with; Two large master bedrooms, each with a private bath. Fully equipped kitchen with full size refrigerator, New gas stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, crockpot and coffee pot. Family room with fireplace, large windows for viewing the bird antics. Dining room, office with Wi-Fi, third bath and grand foyer. Horse paddocks with electric and auto water. Plenty of trailer parking space. 700 sq. ft. of covered outdoor living space out the back door. Adobe walled compound with 16 ft. tall gates. An outdoor fireplace just off the front entrance gives you the opportunity to kick back, have a drink, listen to coyotes chatter as the orange sun sets and a night full of stars begins. All this while your magnificent beast are a no more than a few feet away and always in view from the main house with it's massive walls of windows.

Upon entering Los Parjaro's you will be greeted by a 6 foot tall parlor stove circa 1915 which once graced a hotel in Colorado and now stands in the foyer. The foyer is 10 feet deep and runs the length of the house. Through a set of French doors you will enter the bedroom wing which houses both master bedrooms and baths. Large rooms and walk in Mexican tiled shower make for an extremely ADA friendly vacation for the whole family. Washer and dryer available just off the master bath.

Arivaca is a charming township off the beaten path, yet assessable by hard surface roads. No traffic noise here, just the nightly chatter of coyotes. Arivaca has a local Mercantile with gas pumps, (no diesel so fill up in Green Valley). Library with more Wi-Fi, Post Office, La Gitana Cantina with full bar, Gadsen Coffee Shop, Sweet Peas Café Serving Breakfast and Lunch, Jan's TLC Dog Grooming, James Barber Shop, Arivaca Clinic, (part of United Healthcare) and Fire Department. Artist Co-op, and a Farmer Market every Saturday where organic treasures abound.

Happy New Year!

This home is where my group stayed during the New Years Eve. We had a warm and comfortable time while the weather outside was cold and raw. This home is lovely and very comfortable. The host is very nice and caring.

Horse Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Los Pajaros Ranch has so many attributes for the guests who are fortunate to spend time in this secluded paradise. My family & I went to Arivaca to reunite with a family friend we had not seen in over 20 years. In the past, I have not been a fan of Arizona desert. Not any more. . .i loved the beautiful ranch house nestled in a 2 acre gated compound. You drive in on dirt roads and then enter the compound through a giant wooden gate. . .and the adventure begins. Green grass, beautiful trees and flowers surround the gorgeous ranch house with tiled floors, bright natural light through windows that run throughout the house. There is a warm inviting fireplace that encourages evening and early morning gatherings. A kitchen that looks out into the livingroom allowing the cook to still participate in the activities. There is also a wooden deck that I loved to sit on and drink my early morning coffee or my pre-bed hot chocolate. The grounds are decorated with string lights in the trees at night giving a beautiful soft lighting to a serene, meditative surround. The compound also has a chicken coup for gathering fresh eggs, goats housed in the horse paddock and is a bird paradise. But for us, it was about the 16 acres outside the compound that brought us the most enjoyment. We walked to the pond and found 2 horses. They were a little shy at first but started to follow us as we continued our walk. Soon 2 more horses joined us in our walk. As we stopped, we were joined by one more. They encircled us, nudged us and interacted with our dog, a Bull Mastiff named Bella. It was an enchanting experience especially since we all love horses. We continued to see them on early morning walks and afternoon explorations. And now for the one thing that sets this trip apart from the many others I have taken. . .the hostess & owner, Michele Davis. She was there to welcom us as we arrived providing a tour of the grounds and sooo much valuable information about the grounds as well as the surrounding area. During our stay, we loved spending time with her and invited her to join us when we went into town as well as dinner at the house. She was so gracious and knowledgeable that her involvement added a wonderful, personal touch to our stay. Visiting Los Pajaros is like an adventure in your own back yard. . .away from home but with all the comforts of being home. We plan on visiting again and often.

Owner's Response: Phyllis, Well.....! What can I say other than "Thank You" so much for the very fine review. your wrote such a beautiful and eloquent description of all I had hoped guest would experience during their stay. Words can not express how much I appreciate your kindness. The horse that roam the property from the neighboring horse ranch, TS Quarter Horses, owned by Tabitha Smith, and are truly a joy to behold. Currently there is a little filly and her mama grazing in the one of Los Pajaro's secluded pastors. Hoping for more little adorable babies in the coming months. Since your stay, we have be able to offer up horse back riding adventures so that the beauty of what is beyond the ranch can be enjoyed from horse back. When you return on your next trip we will all have to take a ride out together with an experienced guide. What I gain more than anything from being a hostess of a VRBO is the life long friendships that develop. I hate to see you go and look forward to your return. Already looking forward to your return this summer. It was my pleasure to have met you and your family along with your ever entertaining and no longer; long-lost, local friend. It was a truly delightful time with all of you and the memories will forever be cherished. Happy Trails, See You Soon and HUGS My Dear Friend. Michelle

Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure I can add anything new to what has already been said about this place..but let me try.

First, this home is LOVELY. Everything you see in the photos is 100% accurate, down to the views and the sunsets. Even bad weather in the winter didn't take away from the charm and beauty of this rustic setting. The home is inviting and very comfortable. Plenty of room for six adults.

Second, the hostess was charming well beyond expectations. Quickly available via text, phone and e-mail she responded to all questions and concerns within minutes. Had she been there the whole week, she would have joined us for dinner. Her knowledge of the area and the lifestyle is required for a comfortable stay. She keeps you up to date on the visiting horses, the goats, the cat, and the chickens. She reminds you about the fireplace and shows you where extra wood can be found. She helps you find local hiking, horseback riding, shooting, dining, shopping, etc. She even offered to pick up a cake for my son's birthday on our behalf. Amazing!

Finally, the area. It's rough. These are gravel roads people. Leave the spiked heels at home. Bring only outdoor / ranch clothing, cowboy hats, boots, and jeans. I didn't wear 1/2 of what I brought as going out involves adding make up to the above list - and maybe earrings and a nice sweater.

The beds were comfortable, the rooms were warm (albeit the hallway was brisk with all the windows!) and the front room was cozy. We had a fire every night and we roamed the yard every morning to feed kitty and grab fresh eggs. It was really pleasant. I have to mention the fluffy towels!

Finally the area...it's rustic and out there. Not too far from Tubac and Nogales that you wouldn't visit, but far enough that you will find yourself nestled away in the hills where the stars are magnificent and the quiet is broken only by the sound of coyotes. Enjoy! You will love it.

Owner's Response: Mrs. Z, Thank you so much for the thoughtful review. I'm thrilled you enjoyed your Christmas and your son's birthday at Los Pajaro's. Your description and insight in the review are spot-on and glad your stay met your expectations. (By the way, thank you for the lovely picture of the presents under the Christmas tree.) Los Pajaro's is place to relax and make memories and you did just that! It was wonderful to meet you, and your family members are delightful. Please feel free to return again and again. Happy Trails, Michelle

outstanding place and awesome host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a deer hunt and I was blown away at the beauty of this magnificent home. Shortly after ariving you understand that this is your temporary home for a few days. Nothing is overlooked by the host and the grounds are beautiful. This is the only home I have ever been to that has 2 back yards. Lol. Awesome firepit in the front yard makes that the second backyard. Will stay there again soon for sure. Probably well Underpriced if you ask me. 5 stars all the way for me.

My wife and I like desert hikes so, we had Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument as one of our road trip destinations. We ended up picking Hacienda Los Pajaros ranch as our destination and as it turned out, our time there ended up being the highlight of our stay in AZ. We took a few very nice hikes but, we loved getting back to the ranch and just kicking back. The amenities were excellent and Michelle is a FANTASTIC host! She was always available to provide us with helpful information about the area which made our stay very pleasant.

Owner's Response: Hey You Two! Was just thinking about you, wondering how the rest of your trip went? Thank you for leaving the ranch house in "Tip-Top" shape, much appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and did manage to enjoy a few hikes. The weather was not to hot, nor to cold to spend some time out taking in nature. Currently the ranch is loaded with birds, birds, and more BIRDS! The flock of Cow Birds are back, (always entertaining to watch the courtship's take place), along with our summer resident Bullocks Oriole's whom are building a nest under the eaves on the back porch. Humming birds are putting nest from pervious years, in the tack room, back into service. If you ever find yourself in this neck of the world I would love to have you back, you are delightful guest and indeed keepers. Happy Trails ,and Again "Thank You!" Michelle

Awesome Hidden Shangri-La

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this incredible place for a week, and are definitely going back next year! It was such a joy to arrive at a place that went way beyond our expectations. The pictures and description of this place by its owner, although extremely accurate ,do not do it justice. We felt that we had arrived ,not just at the Los Pajaros ranch but someone's private well cared for home or mansion. We have stayed at various VRBO properties and have never experienced the quality that awaited us here. From the spices in the pantry and exceptional kitchen ,which lacked nothing, to the fluffy white towels and beautifully tiled walk in shower ,to 1200 count egyptian sheets, and impeccable furniture throughout the house ,we found it an absolute joy!

As for the house itself, every window, and they stretched from one end of the ranch house to other, looked out at well cared for grounds. Two wonderful full length porches( in the front and back) awaited morning coffee or evening star gazing. There was inside and outside fireplaces filled with wood and ready to be lit. The ranch is surrounded by fence and we felt safe and well protected. Besides, the delightful owner lives in a cabin near by and is just a phone call away. The owner was extremely knowledgeable and helpful from sightseeing to making sure we had everything we could possible need. This place is an adventure of a lifetime, and the owner is someone you would like as a lifelong friend. We found a place that anyone would want to go back to again and again. The Wolff's

Owner's Response: Yvonne, Thank you for the wonderful review. You have humbled me. I was delighted to have you and your husband stay at Los Pajaro's and glad you enjoyed your stay enough to return in the future. It truly is a place to decompress from hectic lives or warm up chilly bones if coming from the North. Our weather this winter has indeed been exceptional and in the summer our wild life blossoms as well as the flowers. Currently it's the rose garden that is in full bloom. "Los Pajaro's" means "The Birds", there is not a shortage of darling little creatures at the ranch and so much fun to watch. With the compound being walls and fenced the little creatures have noting to fear and many have chosen to make it their home. Upon your return, we will venture out further with a quick jaunt up to Tucson for the day and enjoy some of it's best kept secrets. Should I be traveling to your fair state of WI, I will indeed, be certain to let you know and see if it's possible to spend some more time together. The joy of being a VRBO, is meeting wonderful people such as your self and your husband. It is a great comfort to know such fine individuals are enjoying their stay at Los Pajaro's. Until we meet again, Michelle
