Property type house

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This is an awesome vacation home that you will LOVE! It is a free standing home with all brand new furnishings! Enjoy this special community from our beautiful home in Barrio De Tubac, a small community within walking distance of the artist village in Tubac, and less than a mile from the Tubac Golf Resort. As frequent VRBO guests ourselves, we know what we enjoy when staying in other’s homes, a designer home, geared towards comfort, with well-stocked supplies. We have picked out every item, from soft sheets, to bathrobes, to Blu-Ray DVD players (allows you to access your accounts with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc) and HD TVs with your comfort and enjoyment in mind. You will love our 2 bedroom, 2 bath home with its’ 10 foot ceilings, gas kiva fireplace, surround sound, jetted tub, walk in shower, well stocked kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, private court yard, and back patio with comfortable seating and beautiful sunset views. Of course high speed wireless Internet is also provided, as well as two bikes, helmets and lock.

You will love being abler to walk, run or bike on the Historic De Anza trail, only blocks from the house, then enjoy a nice glass of wine on the patio watching an amazing Arizona sunset! You will also really enjoy visiting the historic Tumacacori mission that dates back to the late 1600’s, or just relax at the pool and hot tub which is a short walk/bike from the house. You should also spend some time browsing the many unique art galleries that line the quiet streets of the Tubac Village. Our home is perfect for a romantic getaway, where you can spend your entire trip without ever leaving Tubac. The local market is just a short walk/bike from the house and has everything you need for a gourmet meal, including specialty cheeses and a very nice wine selection. If you love golf, as we do, you can spend your days playing golf at the famous Tubac Golf Resort or at a host of other golf courses in the area (Rio Rico or Green Valley). The Golf Resort also has a Spa and a great restaurant called the Stables. Our favorite spot for dinner is the exquisite Elvira’s Restaurant – within walking distance from our home. You will be blown away by the food and ambiance at this restaurant.

Finally, if you really enjoy hiking, biking or running, there are plenty of trails within close proximity, such as Madera Canyon, Elephant Head, and in Rio Rico. Tubac is also quite famous for birding, a very popular activity on the De Anza Trail, but you don't even have to go that far, as many species visit our back yard. There are even numerous vineyards, which host a wine festival in early August each year within a reasonable driving distance. Once you visit Tubac, you will always want to come back for more!

About Carol Benight

We are ultra marathon runners who also love to play golf, bike and just enjoy being outdoors. We visited Tubac for many years, and loved it so much we decided to purchase a home there. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Carol Benight purchased this house in 2013

Why Carol Benight chose Tubac

We have stayed in Tubac for many years, and have fallen in love with the area, as you will too. We bought this home because we like the Barrio de Tubac area, and this home had a lot of privacy, which is important to us.

What makes this house unique

We love sitting outside watching the desert sunsets, a spectacular sight!

Great place to stay.Easy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Tubac is a fun tourist town with lots to look at, eat and buy. The house is in a convenient location, very comfortable and well appointed for most anything you might need. We loved the two bikes and rode them everyday. In the evenings we caught up on movies and tv series. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Terrific Tubac!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this little slice of paradise for a second stay....hopefully next December we’ll wing our way from Atlanta to Tucson for another week or more! We had so much fun just living like locals for a week. Walking on the Anza Trail, deciding what we’re gonna order at Wisdom’s cafe pretty much we’re the highlight of our days! Oh a little nap and a little local scenic drive and we were good to go. Come here to this little village and de-stress. You won’t regret it . Now about this glorious house we are so privileged to get to stay in....perfect in every way , the kitchen is a cooks kitchen ...every gadget ,pot ,pan etc one would need to prepare any type of meal. Really fast internet and a gazillion tv channels. Uber comfy beds with high quality linens. I love the corner lot location with dogs and people passing by all the time and the bird feeder and birds. But the best thing is low ambient light at night and the stars....thanks Carol

Great Getaway Location and Home

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a Home away from Home. It was fully stocked like someone lived there. Very comfortable and very clean. Quiet and easy access to downtown. We love to walk and there were so many options right out our front door. Would love to return to this charming home.

Beautiful, well furnished home in quaint neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Tubac is a favorite place to visit and this home is just several blocks from downtown. The home is well furnished with kitchen tools and supplies. It is an open floor plan with nice patio area for enjoying the back yard. It is at the end of the street which provides for privacy. There is a pool about six blocks south and a little west which is also very nice. Two bikes were provided that were nice for exploring the neighborhood. We put on a birthday party at the house during our stay. The open design made this very nice for people to mingle. The dining area works for six people but the patio area can be used for additional seating. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, dishes to use with a group of six to eight people.

Great place for bird watching/hiking/running/biking on De Anza Trail, blocks from our home, or challenge yourself to climb to the top of Mt Wrightson, a short drive away, or visit the many art galleries in the Tubac village, or play golf on one of the numerous courses nearby.
