Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Tubac

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Ideally located near the charming village of Tubac and 1 minute from the Sinaloa Rim for birders. While Tubac is in the Sonoran Desert, it is adjacent to the snow capped, pine forested Santa Rita mountain range.

This well appointed custom home is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the town where 'Art meets History'. The home backs up to an active creek and beautiful mountain ranges in the distance. The famed De Anza trailhead easily accessible just behind the yard, making the location ideal for taking in nature...it's a true birder's paradise. This home has a very private back patio/yard with mature plantings to relax and get away from it all. Or, spend quiet time in the charming little interior courtyard that connects to the dining room/kitchen and guest bedroom. The home sleeps 6 comfortably and is fully equipped with everything you will need for a week's stay or longer. Many upgrades were made to this new home - custom stained concrete flooring throughout, stainless appliances, tiled bathrooms, carved wood detailing, custom window coverings, granite counters and more. New furniture with designer details will make this feel like your home away from home - in the sun!

Five minute walk to the new Plaza de Anza, with wonderful bakery cafe, art galleries, shops and world-class restaurants. Three minute bike ride or ten minute walk to center of Village, full of interesting, galleries, shops, a great bookstore, delightful restaurants and interesting culture. Just over a mile to the Tubac Golf Resort & Spa, home to an excellent 27-hole Red Lawrence course, great practice facilities, two superb restaurants and brand new full-service spa. Excellent road and mountain biking from the front door. 2 bicycles and helmets in the garage are available for use, perfect for exploring amazing Tubac Village and surrounding area!

About Preben Martin - Owner

We are Seattle natives but now spend half of the year in Seattle in our downtown condo or in our home on Vashon Island, and in our Arizona homes (Tubac and Tucson Foothills which is available for rent). We also love Hawaii and have a condo there that can also be rented through VRBO (our downtown Seattle condo is too). Working in sports television has its perks, but after many days on the road our favorite things to do are spend relaxing days in the beautiful places we call home. While in Tubac we love to walk to dinner at some of the fabulous restaurants, take walks along the de Anza trail behind out home, go hiking, ride our bikes around visiting galleries, and of course we just relax in the sun! Tubac is one of our favorite places on Earth and we hope you are able to enjoy it as well.

Why Preben Martin - Owner chose Arizona

We LOVE Tubac! We fell in love with it on our many visits from our home in Tucson for fabulous shopping and dining. It is a magical place where time stands still, history comes alive and you can immerse yourself in the small town Southwest lifestyle.

What makes this house unique

It was important to us to have a home that did not back up to other homes. We wanted the feel of being out in the great expanse of land that extends to the mountains beyond. We were lucky enough to get that house that backs up to the De Anza walking trail and active wash. At the same time we wanted to be within walking distance of the shops and restaurants we have come to love so much. With this beautiful custom home you get it all!

This house has it all!!

  • 5 of 5

Want to get out of the Phoenix heat, but not go too far? This is a great option for you! My husband and I spent some time at this charming house in June of this year and it was perfect! The house has everything you could possibly want from ample space, plenty of dishes, comfortable bed, TV, BBQ and an amazing outdoor area to gaze at the stars. Seriously, it is truly a treat to go outside after the sun goes down and stare at the beautiful, unobstructed view of the stars with no city lights! We spent a couple days just lounging in the comfort of the home playing board games and relaxing feeling like we were millions of miles from Phoenix. We spent a morning walking the trails that are literally right out the back door then the afternoon by the neighborhood pool. We were able to even take an excursion to Lake Patagonia to picnic and experience the cool lake water, it’s a mere 45 minutes away! Take advantage of the small town feel by hitting some of the local shops with awesome knick-knacks for your yard and there are plenty of yummy restaurants nearby too. Plus, the golf course that part of Tin Cup was filmed at has a great outdoor café that we stopped at on our way into town for a drink. Finally, the best part is if you don’t live in Arizona, but want to visit, it’s less than an hour from the Tucson Airport. The owners were super helpful and accommodating, we highly recommend this house and hope to get back sometime in the winter for a whole different experience!
