What A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

Talk about getting away from it all. This is the place for you if that's what you're looking for. Tranquility, silence and serenity are good descriptions of this beautiful home and it's out of the way location. Tastefully appointed with all the comforts of home. Cozy chairs and couches in the living room. Beautiful dining area for evenings dinners. A spacious master bedroom and bath on the second level. A fully equipped kitchen for all cooking needs. Just shop and cook homemade gourmet meals at home.

The billiard room was lots of fun. Having the convenience of a full laundry room with washer and dryer was great. The property is immaculate and well cared for. Pool and spa tub are available for use. If you have any questions the owner is ready available. Mark was happy to answer any questions we had on a timely basis. Instructions for home maintenance are clearly spelled out in his detailed handi book on arrival. We would recommend this home and spectacular surroundings to anyone looking for a respite from this crazy world. We hope we have the chance to return one day.

There are lots of things to do in the area which Mark provides for you in his handi book. Restaurants in Tubac are good for the most part. The Italian Peasant is our favorite. But nothing can beat making a homemade delicious dinner in your home away from home in one of the most beautiful landscapes in this county. One day we hope to return.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time to this beautiful property. We love the serenity and watching nature from the front porch. The home is perfectly appointed and always a very comfortable stay and the owners are most helpful. Off the beaten path and completely worth it. We made a day trip into Mexico and did some hiking but really enjoyed the time by the pool the most.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a terrific week at this property. The house is secluded and elegant. Its one of the few places that one can spend an entire day with virtually no outside sounds other than those made by nature. A million stars come out at night at night. We made day trips to Tubac and Tucson, but we enjoyed most of all the hiking and nature watching possible at this property. We had no problems of any type and the owner checked in from time to time to make sure everything was in order. Definitely a place we would return to.

Get Away From It All

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here three times. It is a perfect place to get away from it all. Great for a day trip to Mexico, hiking the desert, or just relaxing by the pool soaking up the sun. The owners have thought of everything and are very accommodating.

Fantastic property in a spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

The rental exceeded expectations and Mark, the owner, was very accommodating. The property is located on a private, gated ranch in Southern Arizona and has every luxury, including sumptuous decoration and fixtures, beautiful bedrooms / bathrooms and living areas, pool & hot tub, professional grill, modern AV system, wifi and a championship pool table. The house is totally secluded & peaceful and benefits from beautiful, undisturbed, panoramic views of the mountains and desert. The house is ideally situated for horse riding with Rancher Dan (stables are on the ranch 5 mins from the house!!), visiting the art stores and restaurants / bars in Tubac, visiting the Titan 2 missile museum, visiting the wild west and prospecting towns of Tombstone & Bisbee, exploring border towns, hiking the ranch and enjoying the desert flora and fauna or simply watching the stars in a totally unpolluted sky. The ranch is a great place to get away from everything and relax in quiet comfort and our family had a brilliant time. Thanks!!!
