About William Ryan

My wife and I are both retired. My wife was a teacher and I was a financial manager. We are from the East Coast and love the outdoors. Arizona has become a second home to us. We especially enjoy hiking and kayaking (in the East). Our Grandchildren live in the East which keeps us there most of the year. We enjoy the theater and symphony where ever we are and Tucson is no exception.

William Ryan purchased this condo in 2009

Why William Ryan chose Catalina Foothills

Proximity to hiking opportunities was a key factor. In addition the aesthetics of the property and the landscaping are superior. The property management is dedicated and effective and guided by a board commited to maintaining the highest standards.

The residents are especially friendly and welcoming to guests and people new to the community.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the views from our unit and the frequent visits by wildlife to the property including javelina, bob cats and coyotes.

The Sabino Canyon Recreational Area and its many hiking trails is less than 1/2 mile up the road. Our unit is at the back of the property far from the sounds of the road and close to the wash so the sounds of owls and coyotes are a reminder of how close we are to nature.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several different condos in the Ventana Vista complex over the years and this is by far the best. It has everything you might want for a comfortable vacation condo: the location is perfect, right next to a wash so you can watch for wildlife and have a perfect view of the mountains; within walking distance to beautiful Sabino Canyon; comfortable furniture and beds. The owner is accommodating and easy to deal with. All in all, 5 star!

Owner's Response: You are TOO kind! Thank you for the comments about our condo - we love it for the same reasons you mentioned. Proximity to the wash and the sounds of the wildlife is our favorite aspect of the place. Thank you for the report on the noisy upstairs toilet - it was a quick and easy fix that you were kind enough to accommodate.

Excellent location, both in Tucson and in the Complex

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the stay at this lovely townhome, with nice views from the upper deck, a great place to relax after a day biking or hiking. The only thing that would have been helpful is a local contact to address a few issues, such as one of the TVs not working, not able to get DVD working and a few other minor things. The 2 contacts that were listed were not available, and did not respond to my calls. The owner was very responsive when I called but being on the east coast, I had to contact Dish and resolve the issues. Inspite of this, I would consider staying at this location again.

Everything was according to description and photos. The place is very quiet. William was accomodating. The supplies provided were very much appreciated. The house was clean. We used the front patio, the pool and the spa every day. We saw different animals. The keyhold is a little finicky and we didn’t find the cheese grater.

Property was very nice, pool, and club room. They even had a library. A nice location.

  • 5 of 5

We use to live in Tucson and went back to visit friends and family. The location is great, close to shopping, hiking and and east side where family and friends are. The condo we rented was very nice, looked just like the pictures on the homes away site. Full kitchen is great, also washer and dryer so you don't have to pack so many clothes. Very comfortable. We would stay there again.

Very comfortable condo,

  • 5 of 5

We found this condo to be very quiet and comfortable. The furnishings were very nice and the beds comfortable. We ate most of our meals in the condo and the kitchen was well-furnished with kitchen utensils, etc. We would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks so much for making our stay memorable.
