"Superbe retraite d'un mois dans ce village étrange mais plein d'intérêts dans le paysage désertique d'Arizona. Mais surtout, un refuge chaleureux dans cette charmante casita décorée avec goût ; des meubles anciens, une belle cheminée, un beau fauteuil club en cuir, quelques livres, un lit moelleux, de la vaiselle mexicaine, des tapis colorés et un patio où il fait bon se reposer et prendre son déjeuner. Une atmosphère qui porte à la contemplation ou au rêve. Idéale pour toucher au plus près l'art de vivre de cette communauté artistique, empreinte d'influences mexicaines et indiennes. De plus,le propriétaire parle français !..."Guest: laurence t. Date of Stay: October 2013 Review Submitted: December 3, 2013View listing
"I just returned to Boston from a wonderful reunion in this beautiful desert “barrio” with a couple of dear friends. It is so peaceful, yet close to Tubac, mountains, missions, restaurants, quaint bars and markets - we explored it all. It was our second stay in this lovely home, a perfect place from which to wander around the countryside and small towns then come back to cook up a meal in the fabulous kitchen. The owner, Bill, keeps this home and property spotless, comfortable and well – stocked. He knows everything about Southern Arizona and he goes out of his way to make guests feel like it is their home. Ceilings are high, furnishings are attractive, beds very comfy, and many amenities right at hand. Views from the house and patio are spectacular in daylight and at night; the pool, hiking and walking trails are just out the door. I highly recommend this home for anyone who wants to really experience the beauty of Arizona."Guest: Cathy Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 14, 2014View listing
"We just returned from a terrific week at this property. The house is secluded and elegant. Its one of the few places that one can spend an entire day with virtually no outside sounds other than those made by nature. A million stars come out at night at night. We made day trips to Tubac and Tucson, but we enjoyed most of all the hiking and nature watching possible at this property. We had no problems of any type and the owner checked in from time to time to make sure everything was in order. Definitely a place we would return to."Guest: DK Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: January 31, 2014View listing
"This was our second trip to Tubac. This is our favorite winter getaway. Warm, sunny days. Cool evenings. No humidity. Everyone in Tubac greets everyone else and friendships are made every day. The property was just as described. The owners were very responsive to our questions and concerns. We love the nearby restaurants, especially Wisdoms, Nonna Vivi and LaBocanita. Two months is not enough time to see and do all that is available. We will be back next year. Thanks for the great time. Thanks also for allowing our dog."Guest: DCH Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: April 4, 2014View listing
Tubac Travel Tips
Get to the Real Arizona by Staying in Tubac Rentals
A trip to Southern Arizona would not be complete without a stay in Tubac. Tubac rentals can be obtained quite reasonably and are great places to spend subdued Arizona vacations. The town is surrounded by high desert vistas. Such surrounding elements make the view from any Tubac lodging quite remarkable. It is quite nice to visit Tubac in the summer as it is significantly cooler than both Phoenix and Tucson.
Tubac Lodging near the Art Colony
In 1752, the Art Colony of Tubac was established, though it was originally a Spanish fort. Today, working artists’ studios cover the grounds. The Art Colony is easily accessible from most Tubac rentals. Be sure to leave your Tubac lodging early in the day to explore the local artist galleries and studios. Perhaps you might find something reminiscent of a Georgia O’Keefe to take home as a souvenir.
Arizona Vacations Always Include Historical National Parks
As you probably know, Arizona vacations cannot be complete unless you visit a national park or two during your stay. One such park near Tubac rentals is the Tumacacori National Historic Park. On the grounds, you will find three Spanish colonial missions dating back to the 17th century. The three missions include the Tumacacori which is open to the public all year long. The other two, the Guevavi and Calabazas, are open during the fall and winter months only.
Try Tons of Outdoor Fun near Tubac Rentals
Of course, part of the charm of Arizona vacations involves the endless list of outdoor activities that you can experience. In the Tubac area, hiking and camping are two of the most popular. The dirt roads around town and up the mountains allow hikers to get up close and personal with the Arizona desert. Sites to note include the Anza Trail, Madera Canyon, and Patagonia Lake. If you would rather spend the night in your comfortable Tubac lodging, simply pack a picnic.
