About Peggy Basubas

I am originally from upstate New York and my husband is from the Philippines and is an engineer for the Department of Defense. We live in Southern California and fell in love with Tucson when we brought our son to the University of Arizona. He is now on his PhD studies at the University of Otago in New Zealand. My daughter graduated from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and our youngest son is attending San Francisco State University. Ventana Canyon is the perfect place to experience the 'empty nest syndrome'!

Peggy Basubas purchased this condo in 2012

Why Peggy Basubas chose Tucson

We enjoy the peace and serenity of Ventana Canyon. There are so many activities in Tucson associated with the university which make our time spent there more enjoyable. Tucson is perfect for active and young-minded people and is also very affordable. We want our guests to feel at home from the moment they arrive.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy having the tennis court and fitness center so close to home. We love to take our morning hikes then come home to relax on the patio. The parking space is conveniently close to the condo, yet it is still very quiet.

The condo was surrounded by trees, very nice. Being so close to the mountains was wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

The location was beautiful, there were two pools very close by and they were wonderful. It was so nice being close to the beautiful mountains. Also the hiking trail we took just a couple of minutes from our condo was great.

We were very pleased

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Tucson and absolutely loved this condo.It is very spacious and has a wonderful open feeling that is enhanced by the views from the kitchen, dining area, and living room through the large dining area windows and through the screened-in covered patio that is so beautifully integrated into the condo design.

We really loved the patio room. It is nicely furnished and is a delightful place to relax, read, and enjoy the night time desert fragrances. We loved the landscaping just outside the patio and the dining area windows, particularly in the evening when it was beautifully back-lit by the lights near the complex entrance.

We feel that the location and orientation of this condo is the best in the whole complex. The neighbors we met during our stay were very pleasant.

The condo is very nicely furnished and pleasantly decorated. Our stay was very relaxing and quite comfortable. It was a perfect place to visit with some local friends and family. It could not have been more perfect. As so many others have said, Peggy has provided for everything you might need during your stay.

We were entertained at least once each day by a Dove that would look in the dining area window to see if anyone was home, and then have fun hopping repeatedly back and forth between two little knobs on one of the horizontal tree branches just outside the patio and dining area. 😊? The overall complex is very nice and quite pleasant to walk around; we particularly enjoyed the landscaping and many flowers that were still in bloom. The condo, the complex it is in, and the location are wonderful. We found convenient shopping and some excellent restaurants nearby.

We like the Tucson area, and we will definitely be staying here again whenever we visit Tuscon.

Perfect condo for our quick trip

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our stay, very well appointed condo and very helpful owner! Thank you for all your help!

Very clean, nice layout and the owner thought of so many things from towels and floats for the pool, ice chests, tennis rackets to walking sticks sticks and back packs for hikes.

Even had a huge notebook of places to eat out at or places that deliver!

TV's in both bedrooms, and the living room, hair dryers in both bathrooms, fully stocked kitchen, very comfortable patio.

Washer and dryer, parking right in front of the condo.

Well located and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Spent three weeks and enjoyed early mornings on the porch and being so close to beauty all around. The Catalina are a living experience in color, views and sound as several storms happened while we were in the Ventana Canyon condo.

We found several excellent restaurants close by and of course visited one fav, Zinburger several times. We also located and ate at Cafe Torino Foothills a few times.

We liked this location because it is central to many paths to adventure. Hiking, off road driving and good shopping are all easy choices for a fun day. We did Biosphere, and a drive up each side of Mt Lemmon. What a great experience. Everyone should've the hoodoos! We also went to B & B Cactus farm, what a kick..... And we had a fine dining evening at Arizona Inn, can't believe how we enjoyed it.

I would definitely return to this area and consider this condo experience again. Clean,quiet and comfortable, just a pleasant place to enjoy all a vacation should be. From the reservation to leaving to drive home, a good experience!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this condo justice. It is a very spacious condo and the owner Peggy has thought of everything. It is also very clean. I stayed here with my mother and she has very arthritic knees. The parking is very close to the condo, as it is all one level. Only one step to the front door. There are also grab bars in the shower and by the toilet. The condo is close to many resorts with excellent restaurants. The Tucson Convention Center is only 30 minutes away. While we stayed here we were able to watch the 4th of July fireworks display at the resort down the street. It was incredible! Hiking is also near by. There are beautiful Saguaros all over the complex, including the one by the patio. There is also a swimming pool and a spa to enjoy. I would stay here again as it was very relaxing.
