The large one bedroom Casita is located on Santa Gertrudis Lane in Tumacacori. The location is absolutely perfect for those who enjoy nature, hiking, birdwatching, gallery hopping, horseback riding and experiencing the historic West. This area of Southern Arizona is just teeming with history. Our property was the location of a stage coach stop between Nogales and Tucson.
The Tumacacori Mission borders two sides of our 8 acre property giving our visitors a peaceful retreat and opportunities to easily explore the mission, the De Anza Trail Santa Cruz River and Tubac. Tubac is a pleasant 4 mile hike or bike ride away. Tubac is known as the place where 'Art and History Meet' There you will be able to visit over 100 galleries, restaurants and stores. Tubac also has a state park and museum where you can explore more of the history of our area.
The Casita has a full kitchen, bath, living room and bedroom. There is an unheated pool on the property which is perfect for cooling off and rejuvenating after a day of exploring.
Pets are welcome. We also have facilities for boarding horses.
All of our Casita's have been recently renovated. We offer our guests accommodations that not only fills their need for a place to stay but also is a soothing experience where they can renew their spirit.

My husband and I fell in love with this property located just outside of Tubac and off of the Santa Cruz River. We were bewitched by the history of the property and were compelled to renovate the buildings. We have put unique touches in each of our offerings to soothe our guests and renew their spirit. We are woodworkers and our studio is on the premises. We create functional art with local mesquite wood.
The Owner purchased this bungalow in 1993
If you're looking for a five star predictable, boring place to stay...don't look here. This casita was centrally located and enabled us to explore some of the history and the surroundings. Such a break from the nonsense that goes on in the Phoenix area. 3 miles from Tubac (it will take you days to visit all the first class art galleries). Walk the Anza trail which is just yards from your casita. Don't miss the museum at the Presidio (awesome) The Tumacacori musem is also exceptional. If history and art aren't your thing (can't imagine) then go to the Desert Diamond Casino 20 minutes away or golf one of the eleven courses in the area. Birding is huge there and every morning we met birders on the Anza trail. We enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and watching some of the woodworking that goes on at the property. Also Bisby is a great day trip. Oh, and have dinner and a Margarita at the famous WISDOM cafe within walking distance. Be sure and get there at opening because it fills up within 15 minutes. Christine and her son Ron are gracious and helped to make this a fun experience. We miss Annie (their dog). My dogs couldn't wait to play with her everyday. P.S.There is a big pool there but it was to cold so we didn't use it.
I had a great time last week in this rental. We found ourselves in Southern Arizona while traveling from new Mexico to California. We had our aging dog with us and were having a difficult time finding lodging that would accept all 3 of us. This property was perfect. The owners even left a dog dish with 3 dog bones wrapped up with a bowl. We could not have been more pleased. The pool was gorgeous, well maintained and perfect to cool off after a morning of hiking. Because of the monsoons (torrential downpours) each late afternoon this area of AZ is lush and green.
While I love S. Arizona and had hoped for a quiet, peaceful place for my husband and I to spend nearly a month, it was anything but quiet. The workshop on the premise was about 50 feet from our bungalow. It is an "open air" workshop and the sanding etc. of mesquite wood was very loud - mostly from 8:00 - 5:00 M-F. That was a deal beaker for us. Also, the kitchen was sparsely equipped and there was no microwave which I believe was in the photo. On the plus side, we really enjoyed getting to know our neighbors and the workers at the wood shop.
