One of the oldest houses in Tubac, this charming territorial-style adobe casita, built in 1857, was home to the village’s first postmaster, Pedro Herrera. Unfortunately, Pedro and the rest of the residents were forced to flee Tubac for Tucson in 1861, due to repeated raids by Cochise's Apaches out of the nearby Santa Rita Mountains. The first postmaster never returned. Today, the Pedro Herrera Casita has been lovingly restored and updated by the current owner. It offers a comfortable, romantic retreat with all the modern conveniences, including central heat/air conditioning, and evaporative cooler, Dish Network satellite service, and wireless internet connection.
Set on a terraced and beautifully landscaped half-acre lot, shared by the owner’s residence, the casita is shaded by old-growth deciduous and fruit trees and is only minutes from the Santa Cruz river and the Anza Trail, offering wonderful walking, hiking, biking, and birding through magnificent old-growth cottonwood and mesquite forests. Less a desert landscape than it is a riparian one, the area is a favorite vacation destination for birders who come to see the incredible diversity and fecundity of both resident and migratory species.
The 750-sq. foot casita is furnished in Colonial-style antique furniture, and includes one bedroom/one bath; original stone-lined working adobe fireplace; fully-equipped kitchen; separate laundry room with washer/dryer and utility sink; brick patio with gas grill and umbrella-shaded dining table. Although only steps from Tubac’s lively shopping streets, the Pedro Herrera Casita is its own private enclave, offering our guests tranquility and serenity in an Old World atmosphere.
