About Raquel

My name is Raquel, I live in Phoenix AZ with my husband and 6 y.o. twins. I was born and raised in Nogales, Arizona graduated from Nogales High School and the University of Arizona. I was a Special Education Teacher for 12 years.

Raquel purchased this house in 2014

Why Raquel chose Tubac

Having grown up in Nogales, I have a special love for the Southwest. After I graduated from college and met my husband we moved around to different parts of the US, but I always longed to return to the desert. In 2005 we moved back to Phoenix where I could be closer to friends and family. Because we found ourselves traveling down south so often to enjoy the beauty and cooler weather of Southern Arizona my husband and I decided to buy a home that we could enjoy with our family and friends.

What makes this house unique

You can have privacy and convenience in one property. Nestled up against the desert you have a perfect view of the mountains and the beautiful landscape. Just around the corner from Tubac Golf Resort. Also right down the road from the quaint Tubac village. Enjoy hiking, biking birdwatching and sightseeing all conveniently located.

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the most clean and comfortable that my husband and I have ever rented ! The yard and view of the mountains is priceless. And Raquel is promptly responsive and helpful to any inquiries. A real joy to deal with. Thank you Raquel!!!

Our family loved the area of Tubac for the little town, for hiking, golf, and I loved the birding. So glad we

found it !!

First time at an VRBO

  • 3 of 5

Lovely location in the Desert outside of Tubac. Freeway noise should be disclosed. We spent three nights there - my sons loved the pool and the house. Even though, the pool had not been cleaned for our arrival. The kitchen floor was sticky and tiles chipped - needs to be resealed - also floor in Master bathroom. Shower was not cleaned. Linens and floor matts dark brown !!!.

I brought my own sheets after I read a previous comment about the place. WiFi did not work - Patio Fan did not work. Mice droppings at entry and patio should have been removed before we came. Garage is too small and cluttered to fit a large sedan. The Desert and landscaping is lovely. As I said : my sons loved it despite my complaints.

Southern AZ peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Tubac, largely because of Casita Mamani! It was so beautiful and peaceful outside, and charming and comfortable inside. We had everything we needed to cook, clean, swim, and relax. The house was clean and well appointed, but not at all generic. It had character all around, and we enjoyed the southwestern flair. The pool was great and the view of the desert and mountains was fantastic.

Tubac and Tumacacori were both interesting towns full of charm and history. Nothing was far from the house, and there's plenty to explore.

Thank you for sharing your retreat with us. We are so grateful for the time we had!

Car: recommended

Tubac a hidden gem where you can soak in the beauty of the desert, take in amazing views and wild life while having fine dining, shopping and sightseeing conveniently located. The home is 1/2 a mile from Tubac Golf Resort where you can Golf, Dine and enjoy a full Service Salon and Spa. Visit the Galleries, shops and restaurants just 1 mile south of the home. While in the area, don't miss a visit to the Tumacacori Mission which is 4 miles to the South. For delicious food visit Wisdom's Cafe in Tumacacori or Wisdom's Dos in Tubac. Don't leave without having a least one World Famous Fruit Burro!!
