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. We visited Tubac for many years, and loved it so much we decided to purchase a home there. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Carol Benight purchased this house in 2013

Why Carol Benight chose Tubac

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!

Beautiful, well furnished home in quaint neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Tubac is a favorite place to visit and this home is just several blocks from downtown. The home is well furnished with kitchen tools and supplies. It is an open floor plan with nice patio area for enjoying the back yard. It is at the end of the street which provides for privacy. There is a pool about six blocks south and a little west which is also very nice. Two bikes were provided that were nice for exploring the neighborhood. We put on a birthday party at the house during our stay. The open design made this very nice for people to mingle. The dining area works for six people but the patio area can be used for additional seating. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, dishes to use with a group of six to eight people.

A lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

We are rushing to catch a flight...otherwise, this would be more detailed with superlatives. Carol was a most accommodating host and it's clear by the way the house is outfitted that she has put much consideration into what would make her guests comfortable. In addition to her lovely home, there is a park nearby that made our stay even better. Local residents congregate in the morning and in the late afternoon with their's not an official dog's even better for both dogs and people. Every time we were there we met friendly, local folks and their equally friendly dogs. No question: you will enjoy your stay at Carol's home.

Beautiful, well-appointed home in a great location.

My husband and I really enjoyed a relaxing week in this lovely and comfortable home. It's combination of tasteful decor, spacious rooms, and comfy furniture made us feel right at home. We loved the proximity; whether driving to regional sights or walking to Tubac Village. The historic Anza trail is a short distance to walk to and beautiful in the stretch toward Tumacacori Mission. We were surprised at how quiet & peaceful the neighborhood is.

Since June temps were in the mid 90s, the community pool was refreshing. And we found between the 2 patios, one would be shaded for a meal or beverage. Carol provides thoughtful touches and she is responsive in communication. Check in and check out is easy. We would love to return some day to this Tubac home!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place this is, we were in town for a family wedding and this house was a great place for us. It had everything that we needed and didn't need well stocked on the little things you don't think about. Carol has a very nice home for you to enjoy. I forgot my pillow at the house and she was kind enough to mail it back to me, she really went above and beyond there. Thanks again for doing that for me I truly appreciate you kindness.

Our morning were spent on the back patio enjoying coffee and the wildlife, there are a lot of birds and lizards to look at and enjoy. We did see a coyote one morning and a wild boar as well.

We have never been to the town of Tubac and was quite pleased with all that it had to offer, there are plenty of places to eat or if you want to cook at home the market in town was stocked with some great finds, it may look deceiving from the outside being that its so little but it had everything that you would need and more. There are also many shops to go and browses in, I just wish we had more time to do that.

If you are thinking about or planning a trip to Tubac this house and town are a great find and you will not be disappointed.
