a state park and a national park is nearby. There are attractions to all directions so you'll want to stay awhile and explore. Hiking, biking, cycling, golfing and shopping are very popular here. The home is fully furnished with 2 queen size bedrooms and nice furniture and awesome views. It also includes a kitchenette, sofa and love seat in the living room with lots of lighting, washer, dryer, range, refrigerator, dishwasher and a full range of cookware and dinner ware.
There are over 10 golf courses nearby for the golfers and there is plenty of shopping, fine art and jewelry shops and historical places for those who don't golf. The best thing about this area is the warm, sunny area and the mild climate. The Titan Museum and Madera Canyon are nearby and Carlbad Carverns are close too. The area is filled with rich Spanish and Mexican history and the people are warm, friendly and welcome visitors.
This area is peaceful and calm and you can see deer and birds. This is a major corridor for birds to travel north and south, so you'll want to do some birdwatching. It is as close as your backdoor as there is a birdbath and bird feeder on the property.
Arizona Vineyards are popular roadside attraction in Nogales on the way to Mexico. Located less than one hour from the resort, the wines are unique and have classic Southwestern names such as Rattlesnake Red, Desert Dust and Coyote Red.

About an hour south of Tucson, the Callaghan Vineyards have been producing award-winning wines for over fifteen years. Owner Kent Callaghan aptly named his 17-acre vineyard “Buena Suerte” (or “Good Luck” in Spanish) and has won many kudos for his fine wines, including the highly-praised 1996 Fumé Blanc. The winery is open Friday thru Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Another winery near Mr. Callaghan’s establishment is the Sonoita Vineyards. Co-owner Dr. Gordon Dutt was a soil scientist at the University of Arizona when he and A. Blake Brophy established their first experimental vineyard in 1973. They found that the high altitude (5,000 feet) soil is nearly identical to the soils of Burgundy, France. The 20-acre vineyard now produces over 10,000 gallons per year. Their 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon had the distinction of being served at the White House. The winery is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., seven days a week.

We stayed here and the house was great--very nice and clean, well equippped, fenced. Nice views of the mountains. House is out in the country , yet neighbors near by so you dont feel completely isolated. We set up our telescope and enjoyed the stars at night. during the day, we visited downtown Tubac, Patagonia, Sonoita and the nearby vineyards. Had a nice lunch at the Velvet Elvis in Patagonia. I would definetely return and andrecommend. Thanks, Mary Anne!
Spacious, quiet, well-equipped, and well-located
We enjoyed 8 days in April. The house was wonderful and the location was ideal. We did a lot of hiking, from Saguaro Park in Tuscon to Ramsey Canyon near Sierra Visa, Madera Canyon is very close, with quite a lot to offer. There are many locations to see birds.

This is a well maintained property. It is very clean and feels like home. Great for cyclcing and night strolls. We had a good sense of security with the street lights, but were able to gaze upon the constellations. Thanks; we are coming back.
