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

Space 3,000 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 4 - 6 nights


About the property

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

Smoke-Free, Pet Free, hypoallergenic. 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. The feel you have here is unparalled. 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 sense 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, 4 TVs, full home wi-fi coverage using 3 routers, fully stocked kitchen, two sets of washers/dryers, 4 refrigerators, two hot water heaters, whole home water purification. surge protector strips in each bedroom so you don't have to reach behind furniture to plug in, about six different types of pillows to fit all needs, 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, tools, 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 Ventana Canyon Estates

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.

Great stay at a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home in November 2017. It was simply beautiful. The views were breathtaking. The house was spacious and our host thought of every convenience for us. Large living areas, two balconies and two outdoor patios afforded all six of us space to enjoy each other company and enjoy ourselves. The master bedroom, bathroom, and walk_-in closet were phenomenal. We would recommend this home to anyone. The Donato Family from New York..

Perfect Tucson VRBO Property!

  • 5 of 5

Great property... location with view, set aside in the foothills overing privacy yet easy access to downtown Tucson (15 min)! Use of Ventana Club facilities and lap pool really added to the property. Large bedrooms with plenty of space. Owner Jason - went out of his way to insure a great vacation/stay!!! Highly recommended and would stay here again.....

Fantastic Location and Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It is my pleasure to pass along to anyone interested in renting Jason's place on Thimble View what an incredibly enjoyable stay we had there. The house is immaculate and tastefully decorated throughout, as though it were meant to be a comfortable home to live in, not a rental for others to enjoy. The view from the well-placed decks looking over the Ventana Canyon Resort below and the Tucson valley beyond are so spectacular the we found ourselves rising before dawn each morning to watch the sunrise with a hot cup of coffee as the sun lit the surrounding cactus-covered mountains.

We can’t overstate how much we appreciated the opportunity to spend what turned out to be a perfect vacation in Arizona, far exceeding our expectations, and due in large part to the wonderful time we had at the place on Thimble View.

Jason was extremely accommodating throughout our entire stay, and we have already begun discussing plans for a return visit.

This was our second stay at the property. The house is beautiful, the setting is secluded yet convenient to the city, the views are spectacular and the amenities are first class. If you have ever wanted to experience living on a mountain in the desert southwest, book this property!
