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.

Carol Benight purchased this house in 2013

Why Carol Benight chose Arizona

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 stay in Tubac!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in Tubac and had a great stay. Lots of things to do, good golf at the Resort and some very good restaurants. Carol's home was beautiful and the best VRBO location we have yet stayed in.

Wonderful rental in all ways

  • 5 of 5

We found this rental to be exactly what we were looking for. I can echo all the positive reviews that have been submitted previously. The house is very clean and well equipped. Tubac is a nice place to stay and close to some of the places you may want to visit, without staying in the big city.

The thing I appreciated the most was the excellent communication from the owner, Carol. She confirmed our reservation immediately, and answered all emails promptly. We had a question for her while we were staying there and her answer was timely and helpful.

Terrific Tubac!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun and unique place! First of all I would like to say this is the most well equipped VRBO rental we have ever stayed in from q-tips to cookie sheets everything was top notch! I really really really loved the location of this property. Being at the corner of the of the Main Street of the Barrio and the quiet little lane we were on was a perfect blend. It was so fun to see people walk by with their dogs or on bicycles. We stayed two weeks and were so busy every day. We had our Anza trail -village route walk we did every day then back to the house for lunch then into the car for a scenic drive which was not difficult to do because this area is gorgeous. Great food to enjoy nearby. We really loved The Goods. Fresh honest healthy eating . Elvira's was very special date nite type restaurant. Wisdoms down the road in Tumacacori is very traditional and the best chips and salsa I have ever had. Coming by air was the easiest get to location for us and we can't wait to return to this very special home and area hopefully sooner than later!!! Thanks y'all....

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

Carol's property exceeded our expectations. My brother, mother, and sister-in-law came to visit us from Florida. We decided to rent Carol's home for them as it was only a 10 minute drive from our house. They stayed there for 4 days and were surprised at all the amenities that were provided. The home was stocked with everything that one would need to be completely comfortable and content. It was extremely clean. The details in the home are very charming. For example, the beehive fireplace, the tall, double front doors, and many more. It very much feels like a custom home. In fact, I would like to trade the house I live in now for Carol's.

Wonderful home! Very clean and peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I visited my family for the weekend and opted to rent out a place for ourselfs, this home was amazing! Very clean, beautiful, spacious and there is a garage for you to park your car in. We had our dog with us and the back yard was nice and spacious for our kiddo!! The only negative thing was one of the bikes provided had a flat tire and although an airpump is provided the part on the wheel where you connect the pump was bent so we could not go for a bike ride and get coffee as planned. Such a minor issue, we just drove into town , 2 minute drive. There is a cute park to go walking at and take your dog to only street over as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, and I do apologize for the flat tire! I am getting it replaced with the flat-proof tubes, so hopefully, this issue can be avoided for future guests :)

Two weeks at our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this VRBO in Barrio De Tubac. It's a large 2 bedroom home in immaculate condition, well stocked, and very comfortable. It has front and rear outdoor seating and is located in a development that is very quiet, stunningly landscaped, and walking distance to Presidio de Tubac and all the wonderful restaurants and stores including a very nice Market for fresh foods. Carol the owner is very responsive to any and all questions or concerns. When you rent this home you will receive complete instructions on the how to's of every aspect of this home. It quickly becomes "your" home. It was a wonderful experience for us.
