We have been coming to Tubac for vacation every year for 5 years; this has been our best rental "home away from home" (we have been staying in Barrio townhouses before). The house had everything that we needed; we especially loved beautifully decorated patio where we spent relaxed time in the shade listening to birds, watching hummingbirds eating from their feeder and taking a bath. The house is right across from Tubac village with its restaurants, shops and galleries. Tubac Center of the Arts is like a small museum. There are historic landmarks in Tubac and around; trails to walk in the shade of trees along the river; Madera canyon nearby for more serious hikers, wineries about an hour away, Smithsonian-Harvard observatory on top of the mountain (they do bus tours, views from the observatory are stunning), Kitt Peak observatory an hour away, and beautiful mountains wherever you look. You can go swim in a nice pool with a hot tub. This is a place to have relaxed vacation yet every day you can do something different and memorable. We highly recommend Tubac and this house which we hope to stay in again.
