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 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!!

William Hubbard purchased this house in 2000

Why William Hubbard chose Tucson

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 carport 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 Southwestern home in need of some TLC

  • 3 of 5

This home was very lovely inside. The back yard, pool area could be a show place with a little TLC. Front side gate off hinges, just needed some weeding, etc. We never used the pool because of the chilliness but no one ever showed up for pool maintenance as stated on Tuesday. The inside of home was lovely, loved the stone fireplace. Disappointed that back bathroom was not working and never repaired during out stay. Plumbers showed up but just dug a hole and that was it. Back bedroom floor was very dirty, could not walk in bare feet, rest of house was clean. We could have used more blankets/comforter for the cool nights. Not much heat in back bedroom. The comforter that was provided was stained and we did not want to use. I would rent this home again if above listed improvements were made. Owner was nice and easy to work with but never heard back about the plumbing. Bill, you might want to check with your property management people.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. So sorry we were not up to your expectations. The back bathroom has been taken care of. We were at the mercy of the plumbers and blue stake people. I'm glad that you had 2 full bathrooms that were working. We have spoken to the landscaper and pool service and they have assured us service would be better...even during the winter. The cleaning crew assured me the floors were clean and thought perhaps they felt dirty because of the nature of the tile. The natural Satillo tile that is not glazed or finished can feel rough to bare feet and maybe even dirty. We will do even a better job in the future. The blankets/comforter situation has been fixed and we have posted information on how to utilize the heater in the back room. There is a wall heater/AC unit that usually provides plenty of heat. We have also provided more blankets if the need arrives. Thanks again for your comments and I hope you will in fact stay with us again!! Bill

Wonderful place with amazing outdoor

  • 5 of 5

My clients 3 sisters stayed for a week in October. First of all booking the house and communication with the owner William was great and easy. He was very accommodating and helpful, easy to reach via email and phone. My clients loved the house, beds were comfy, kitchen well equipped and outside with the grill and sitting area amazing. Mountain view from the house was amazing. Thank you for accommodation my clients and providing a home away from home for a sister's getaway. We would recommend this house for anybody who wants a nice and comfortable place to relax in Tucson, Az.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion with four generations and it couldn't have been better. Ages ranged from 5 to 85 and all were comfortable. The pool slide was a big hit with the kids who spent every waking moment in the water. Plenty of shade for adults. The guest house was much larger than expected, very private and comfortable. Beds all had memory foam toppers so no complaints there. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to host a dinner party for 15. All fit comfortably around the large dining table. the kids could watch TV in the den without disturbing others as there were plenty of spots to sit and relax. Just perfect, thank you!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed this great home. Everything we needed was available in the kitchen from breakfasts to BBQ's. We spent most evenings on the lovely covered patio playing games and taking in beautiful sunsets across the mountains. The spacious living areas allowed for privacy when needed or family time when wanted. Pool was welcoming and refreshing in late July, and we had a blast cooling off via the slide. Pet friendly and clean and renting was effortless. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you to our hosts.

I loved my stay. A great experience overall.

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay. A wonderful experience in a beautiful home, quiet with breathtaking views. A couple of minor maintenance issues that I am sure Bill will resolve, ( such as plumbing in one bath, and washing machine malfuction)as he is a wonderful host.

Super relaxing! Felt at home right away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week this past month and couldn't be happier. The place felt like we were home from the first moment, and we had room to have our local Tucson family over to "our" house! Convenient, plenty of room to relax, swimming and grilling made it a great vacation! I even kept up on my yoga in the meditation room! Highly recommend this place and hope to stay there again!
