About William Hubbard

My wife and I are school guidance counselors and local actors here in Tucson and in Hawaii. We split our time between Tucson and Haiku, Hawaii on the island of Maui. We do local theater productions and commercials and film work here in Tucson and Phoenix and Hawaii. Bill was born and raised in Tucson, Vicki is from Tennessee and Florida. We have 2 sons...one is an actor in LA and the other is a music producer.

This home is a labor of love and we wish we could move it to the beach!!

This is our home and we love it! Please enjoy the home during your stay but remember it is our home too. If you break something, let us know. If something needs our attention, let us know. And remember to leave the home in the same way you found it. If you move furniture, please put it back the way you found it. Enjoy our home as if it were yours. Thanks!!

William Hubbard purchased this house in 2000

Why William Hubbard chose Tanque Verde

This was the perfect property for us when we purchased it in 2000. It is on a little over an acre of land, and was just big enough to accommodate our 2 donkeys, 3 dogs and 2 cats. It is just outside the city limits...literally! The animals are now with us on Maui…well not the donkeys…they are living on a wonderful ranch north of Tucson.

We have a wide variety of wildlife here, and our guests like the seclusion and peacefulness that surrounds them.

We didn't know how to market the property, but Vicki came up with The Bed and Burro. We had 2 donkeys and at the time I don't believe there was another rental that has pet donkeys on the property!! Quill, is our rescue donkey from Nevada and Jasper is our newest. They no longer are on the property...they live on a beautiful ranch near Aravaipa Canyon, but there memory is still present.

What makes this house unique

Your stay here will be peaceful and relaxing. Your casita comes fully equipped with a full kitchen, laundry facilities, linens and towels. You have your own private driveway and parking area and the benefits of the entire grounds to rest and relax.

You might be lucky enough to see some of the wildlife here including many bird species, javelina, bobcats, coyotes, and lots of rabbits!

We are very close to outdoor activities including the Saguaro National Monument East, Mt. Lemmon and Sabino Canyon. Many guests use this as a base for day trips to Tombstone, Karchner Caverns and Mexico.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Bed and Burro Inn was a dream come true for me and my guest. The rental was more than expected-clean, decorated, all the amenities you can imagine-plus in the most scenic area of our country-breathtaking! Will start planning for next visit!

Cute Casita

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were quite comfortable. The bed is good and the kitchen sufficient. It might feel crowded with 4 adults however the outside area is quite large and pleasant. Having a barbecue and a large table outside in the shade was wonderful. The pool is a nice relief when it is hot. The owner is very helpful if needed. Proximity to hiking is perfect. Everything you need is close by.

Great Place for A Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for five weeks in winter of 2017 and plan to return for six weeks in 2018. That tells you something right there. Great place, lot of room to spread out. Wonderful walk in shower in master bedroom (big enough for two or three). Convenient to stores, grocery, dry cleaners, drug store, etc. Adult son with us loves biking; easy access to safe bike lanes. Beautiful outdoor area with pool in backyard. Owners are lovely and Mike, Tucson based assistant is available whenever you need him. Highly recommended is all I can say.

Nice small place. Comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

It would be nice to have some bar soap in the shower. The place is a little smaller than it appears on the web site. The pool and BBQ are actually part of the main house and a little difficult to use without bothering those who are staying there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Gerald. The grill area, pool and the entire back yard are all common areas for both properties. We will try and make that more clear on the site. They are both vacation rentals and occasionally both are rented. Glad you had a nice stay.

Loving Bed and Burro

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this peaceful neighborhood very near to Saguaro East. We especially enjoyed the peaceful yard, chirping birds and the mountain views. The casita was perfect for our needs. Everything was clean and tidy and comfortable.

Hoping to come back next year.

Has a great potential

  • 3 of 5

We were a bit disappointed in the casita. It has such a wonderful feel about it and a great location, but a bit run down. I talked with the manager about the blankets needing to be washed, as they smelled bad and hadn't been cleaned in awhile. We have rented several homes and condos in the same area over the years, and since we had to book last minute, felt like we paid a bit too much for this property for the size. The kitchen is very small and hard to find space to work for dinner. It's really more a two bedroom studio. Also, the front door lock was broken, so we were unable to lock up when leaving each day.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry your stay was not perfect. We try very hard to insure you have a great experience with us and would have corrected these problems immediately if we knew about them. The front door utilizes an electronic keyless system and was working correctly. I think perhaps the guests did not know how to operate the lock, but we would have immediately showed them how to operate it and make sure it was operating correctly if we knew they were having a problem. A new cleaning crew dropped the ball on the blankets. They forgot to change out the blankets when cleaning I suspect. Our bad.... The price point for the casita is inline with other rentals in the area during the peak season. Please check out all the 5 star reviews we have had here. Again we hope you have a better experience with us next time and we will continue to strive for excellence.
