Magical Private Mountain Estate in Ventana Canyon + Guest Ventana Membership!

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Space 3,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 6 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Smoke-Free, Pet Free. Minimum length of stay 4-6 days (depending upon the season). The property resides inside the gates of the acclaimed Lodge at Ventana Canyon Resort community. Ask us about short term membership options for use of the Spa, Fitness, Pool and Dining rooms (breakfast, lunch and dinner).

Visitors describe this as an absolutely magical place. What separates this property from other rentals, besides the phenomenal views, is the quiet and privacy. Despite being within the Ventana community, the private drive and 3.6 acre lot, and the way it's situated in the mountains, allows for a feeling of a complete get-away. Other homes may be in the mountains, but often have neighbors and roads so close that you hear cars, dogs barking, landscapers, etc.

With views that extend to the edges of the surrounding Tucson mountain ranges and beyond you can enjoy Golf course, lake, and national park views right from the three decks and patio. If you're going through the adventure to rent a home, why not stay in a place that you'll never forget? Martha Stewart (no kidding!) visited and just loved it.

Quiet, secure, private and safe, the 3.6 acre property features 24/7 guarded, video-monitored entrance through the Lodge at Ventana Canyon and a separate, private drive with gate to the house. Full, monitored security system and ANSI-level 1&2 locks & security doors. The Lodge at Ventana Canyon has extensive facilities, including a resort pool with bar, Olympic sized, heated pool with pool house and cabanas. Golf (ranked in the top 75 in North America), Tennis (ranked in the top 50 in the world). Ask us about Spa and Dining availability and guest member rates. This can be set-up prior to your arrival.

This is a full-time, rental property, not our residence, so it's free of clutter and personal effects.

High-end electronics, fast internet/802.11 ac/n/g wi-fi, and nice decor. Three bedrooms, one king in the master and your choice of two extra-long twin beds or king beds in the other two bedrooms. One full bath with two-person jetted-tub separate from (two person, two-head walk-in) shower. One three-quarter bath (shower, no tub), and one half-bath. Full bath connects to master bedroom, and 3/4 bath connects both to a bedroom and living room. The two showers have (head-height) windows which open to the outside. Full kitchen (with cleaning supplies, spices and condiments). Laundry room with various soaps, cleaning supplies, rags and an iron. 2.5 car garage with tools, bags and an extra refrigerator/freezer. No noisy neighbors or roads.

Attention to details and highly functional. The input from dozens of past renters has taught us to furnish the home with extensive amenities. Just a few of the examples include: propane grill a computer desk, surge protector strips in each bedroom so you don't have to reach behind furniture to plug in, a small table to set things on near the front door, rags, cleaning supplies, shampoo, soap, tissues, candles, dimmers on most of the lights for creating moods, a small tool kit, first aid kit, and so much more.

The house has original artwork, custom mirrors, and new, solid wood furniture.

It includes a custom, comprehensive renter's guide with instructions on the operation of the house, appliances and entertainment, room-by-room inventory list, along with information of attractions and the best dining. Rates can be negotiated if the house is within the near term (last minute availability).

[Caution- most of the condos listed as 'Ventana luxury' in VRBO are outside of the Ventana property. They were very cheap apartments that were converted into low-end condos a few years ago. Many of these were in foreclosure for as little as $60,000. They are noisy- you can hear your neighbors trampling around, their stereos, cars and car doors slamming right outside your window. They are in a different league from this mountain home, so don't be fooled.]

About Jason Theodosakis

I live in Tucson and have been enjoying the beauty of this desert for over two decades now.

Jason Theodosakis purchased this house in 2007

Why Jason Theodosakis chose Catalina Foothills

I purchased this house in 2007 because it was the most amazing property I had seen. I was taken by the privacy and amazing views all within the confines of a four-star, nationally ranked, 36-hole golf and tennis resort.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the simple beauty of the desert in this house that is built into the mountain. From enjoying a cup of coffee while watching a monsoon roll in, to watching the mountains turn purple at sunset. Tremendous privacy and quietness, you'll regain a connection with nature. A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of your normal life. Despite the private and rural feel, your nearby everything you need: restaurants, stores and adventure.

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my Dad's 90th birthday at this wonderful property. Plenty of room for his 7 adult children. A wonderful range of activities and facilities available practically right at the doorstep. Amazing views. The pool was a great place to be in the evening. Lots of room for family gatherings that were prominent that trip.

Perfect Tucson Stay

  • 5 of 5

Was with friends for a cycling vacation in Tucson. The house couldn't have been better--the location, the views, the furnishings, the amenities--it was perfect. I can't imagine better views of the city and the surrounding mountains. The owner was very accessible and accommodating. The neighborhood is great--the Lodge/Club has golf, tennis, a gym, dining, etc, all within a mile of the house. We are considering making this an annual trip, and I would stay at this property again, without question.

Fantastic location.

  • 4 of 5

The house had lovely views from every window/deck. Jason was available and very helpful when needed. It would be an ideal rental for three couples. Some parts of the home could use a little updating, otherwise it would easily rate five stars.

This home is absolutely stunning. The location is completely private yet close to all services, great golf and hiking. The view and sunsets are amazing, the home was very clean and is tastefully furnished with southwest charm and it includes everything you could possible need. My husband and I were there for a week but the home would be perfect for two couples or a family. Jason is very responsive to any question you may have. In my opinion, this home is nicer than any of the 5 star resorts in AZ and I have stayed at several of them. We loved it and will definitely return.

So Very Private!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this home for 10 days in November. The house exceeded our expectations. The master bedroom was very large and had direct access to a separate deck as well as a direct set of stairs to the outdoor pool. You are perched on the side of the mountain and while you can see your neighbor's rooftops if you wish, they cannot see you at any point outside the house. The house is well maintained, secure, and nicely appointed. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The Wifi was excellent throughout the entire place, all the TVs had DirectTV, and there are three different control panels for heating/cooling. This meant that we could cool one part of the house without having to turn on AC in parts that simply didn't need it. The three bedrooms had excellent beds, linens, pillows etc. There were two spa robes in each of the three closets (for a total of 6 robes) so that you could enjoy the sunrise in the morning while still in your PJs!!

I didn't want to write this review.....I don't want anyone else to discover this magical jewel in Ventana Canyon!!!
