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
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.
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.
We had the most wonderful stay at the hacienda. The pool was cool and refreshing and the house was much better than the pictures or previous reviews led us to expect.
It's a big comfortable ranch style home with all the amenities you could need including anything for cooking and fun including board games. The desert is absolutely breathtaking. Surrounded by creosotes and mesquites it's my favorite area around Tucson. We enjoyed watching the monsoons and unbelievsble Arizona sunsets and wildlife. We had visits from a roadrunner, watched a morning dove make a nest and quietly tiptoed by the nesting hummingbird hanging under the side patio. We truly felt at home and also like we were on a vacation. Bill was a terrific host. Thank you Hubbords for a great couple weeks in Tucson.
House comfy and well-supplied. Has character! Quickly seemed like a home. Great location--near Mt. Lemmon and lots of hiking trails. Enjoyed visits by lots of birds and wildlife. Pleasant neighborhood.
Owner and manager went out of their way to make sure we were cared for and comfortable. Very friendly and accommodating.
We are looking forward to return stay and have highly recommended it to others.
Our party of 4 had a great, cozy relaxing time here! The beautiful Spanish mission-style home is completely private and quiet. The entire property is enclosed by a stucco winding wall. ( Hopefully keeping rattlesnakes from visiting!) I especially enjoyed exploring all the great treasures in the yard! An outdoor eating bar with grill, nice pool, clay chimineas, hanging shell mobiles, and sitting areas with fire pits all around. I even used some fresh rosemary out of the garden. Beautiful mountain views surround, and being from the Seattle area, I really enjoyed walks admiring all the different species of cactus, different terrain and SW style homes. Not to mention the gorgeous sunsets! The interior is spacious, comfortable and clean with every little thing provided. I lost my glasses and was even able to borrow a pair here! Bill very thoughtfully put together a binder to tell guests about local wildlife, places to visit, including their favorite restaurants and even supplied copies of driving directions. They also provided board games, books and travel brochures. Nice touches like this are throughout the property. We felt like we each had our own "wing" of the house. We each had a private bathroom, and there are two tv areas complete with direct tv. Home away from home. The only thing I would change is to have stayed longer! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home, and I would love to visit again!
Terrible, terrible, terrible! Do not stay here! Home in terrible disrepair. Furnace broken and never cleaned; termites dropping out of ceiling; water pipes breaking; kitchen sink backed up on Thanksgiving and we could not use it! Very upset with the whole place. Health department should come in!
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.
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.
