The Floating Stone Casitas are Tubac vacation rentals located directly in the village in one of the few remaining walkable towns in the US. Enjoy Tubac lodging at its finest. Tubac is an artist village and from a historical point-of-view, one of the most important sites in the state of Arizona. While Native Americans have long inhabited this spectacularly beautiful river valley, the Spaniards first inhabited it in the mid 1700s followed by the missionaries. The silver miner, Charles Poston, established Tubac as the first capital for the state of Arizona in the mid 1850s. After a period of decline around the turn of the century, artists rediscovered the village in the mid 1960s and today Tubac is a mecca for art and history buffs, those wanting temporate, dry climate and visually stunning one for outside activities (hiking, golfing, birding, biking, plein-air painting, photography and more).
It is approximately 45 miles south of Tucson‘s International Airport and 20 minutes north of Nogales, Mexico off the I-19. Once you park your car in front of one of our 6 fully furnished casita vacation rentals, you can walk across the street to golf/tennis, to approxiately one hundred shops, art galleries, and fine restaurants, the historic Tubac Presidio, hiking and birding on the Anza trail that leads to the Tumacocori Mission. Tubac Chamber of Commerce also organizes their famous Tubac Festival of the Arts in November and February, and so much more.
Nestled between the Santa Rita and Tumacocori mountain ranges at a higher elevation than Tucson and Phoenix, Tubac offers a cooler, more temperate desert climate attracting visitors all year long. You will be able to experience the cultural heritage of nearby Mexico and of Native Americans inhabiting the area, visit museums and missions, and Arizona’s wine country just 45 mintues away. Tubac makes for a great location for enjoying the Sonoran Desert.
