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.

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.

About The Owner

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

Amazing Arizona treasure

  • 5 of 5

Our 7 day stay at Santa Gertdis Lane was absolutely amazing and so relaxing. We were centrally located for short day trips to explore south eastern Arizona and yet arrive back in time for an evening meal, sunset and beautiful night sky view from our veranda.We were provided with a complimentary fruit basket, coffee and creamer upon arrival. Christine and Ron live on the same property and were available to answer questions and give pointers on attractions to see but were never instrusive. They have their woodworking business on site and are happy to give tours and demonstrations.The property is on the edge of the Juan Baptista Ansa trail for short hikes. The town of Tubac is 4 miles way and offers many unique shops including one owned by the property owner and one of a kind restaurants. The casita was clean and well maintained.The kitchen is well equipped. The bathroom has a nice hot shower. The beds had good quality firm mattresses. The evenings were cool and there were plenty of warm blankets as well as electric heaters for taking away the chill and I did pack my slippers also. We and our dog enjoyed the country charm of goats chickens and turkeys. We had a great vacation here.

Charming and full of character.

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.

Comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

A bit disappointing

  • 2 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Carol & Scott , I am truly sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your stay. On the VRBO website it does say that we have a wood shop. It is our policy to not begin any machinery until 9am and our work day ends at 4pm. This is usually the time our guests are out and about enjoying the many activities of Santa Cruz County. There is no microwave in the pictures of the Casita that you rented. We do however have a microwave in our other unit. I did ask numerous times if I could do anything for you or if you needed anything, and you never indicated that you had any needs. I actually have a microwave still in the box for anyone to use. We chose not to put it in the Casita because of limited space. We are always willing to go above and beyond for our guests. I am sure if given the opportunity we would have made sure your stay was all you desired. Something that we did to welcome you that is not listed on our site was to provide you with a chilled bottle of wine, a bowl of fresh fruit and treats for your dog. This is just an example of our desire to deliver exceptional service. You were really lovely guests and I wish we could have made your stay more pleasant.
