About the property

3-4 Bedroom, 3.5 Baths, 1-2 Offices, Adjacent To Sabino Canyon National Park

4,400 Sq. Ft of remodeled luxury on a private, hilltop 5-acre parcel. Private road that dead-ends up at the house.

Smoke-Free, Pet Free. Minimum length of stay 30 days. Ask us about guest memberships for Ventana Canyon Golf and Tennis, Spa, Fitness, Pool and Dining. No kids (below age 15) are allowed up at the home, even for a visit, since the deck railings are not child-proof.

Visitors describe this as an absolutely magical place. What separates this property from other homes, besides the phenomenal views, is the quiet and privacy. The private drive and 5 acre lot, 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. This property is adjacent to the Sabino Canyon National Park, a place with miles or hikes, walks, bike paths. The property is high enough to see over the Tucson mountains to the west, and about 60 miles into the mountains in Mexico!

The furnishings and finishes are very high end. Solid wood furniture, leather dining chairs, $6,000 heated, Japanese bidet Toto Neorest toilets, custom mirrors and artwork.

Full, monitored security system and ANSI-level 1&2 locks & security doors. Ask us about short-term memberships for the nationally acclaimed resort - The Lodge at Ventana Canyon. This resort has a full exercise facility, a resort pool, an 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), Spa and Dining available at Owner's guest member rates (discounted) for up to two weeks of your stay. This is set-up prior to your arrival. It's perfect for golfers, who can save a substantial amount on clubs and green fees using our membership.

The home is equipped 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).

About Jason Theodosakis

I fell in love with the foothills of Tucson, and Sabino Canyon, the national park adjacent to the house.

Jason Theodosakis purchased this estate in 1999

Why Jason Theodosakis chose Tucson

After arriving in Tucson, I spent 10 years looking for a property like this one. I spent years doing a remodel of the house. It is magnificent.

What makes this estate unique

360° views, private, quiet with magical scenery and wildlife. This is the only mountain home I found that had large flat areas of land. It's so high up, that you can see over the tucson mountains to the next range, as well as more than 60 miles into Mexico!

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this incredible house. We love the location, the view, the amenities, and the house itself. Jason is always available to help, yet never intrusive. This place fully deserves a 5 star rating.

Amazing desert getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely and relaxing vacation in this amazing Tucson home. Glorious views, every amenity thoughtfully provided. Quite and private. Room to spread out for personal space and large entertaining areas when everyone wants to get back together. I highly recommend it.

Beautiful house with amazing views , access to state-of-the art gym and pool and outdoor activities

  • 5 of 5

There was easy access to all that my husband and I enjoy. We could cycle in Sabino Canyon and Saguaro National Park, swim in a 25m pool and workout at the Ventana Heath Club , run in the neighborhood and run and hike in Sabino Canyon . We could not have chosen a better place.

The house was immaculate, the views of Tucson and the surrounding mountains were truly amazing both in the morning and at night. While you feel so secluded, there is easy access to shopping and downtown.

Amazing Setting with Outstanding Mountain, Desert and City Views

  • 5 of 5

Our Winter vacation in Tucson was delightful because of our stay here. The description is very accurate-it is an amazing place. My husband was recovering from a bout of pneumonia so needed to rest and relax. This was the perfect setting! The house is well supplied with everything from kitchen utensils to post-its, pens, pencils and tape. Shopping and exceptional restaurants are about 2-3 miles away, so a car is definitely necessary. We appreciated the guest membership at the Golf and Racquet Club and even extended it with a seasonal membership which was a terrific addition for our guests. The owner and property manager were very helpful and friendly. We hope to stay here again next year.

Sabino Canyon Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Excellent experience, highly recommended! We loved the location in the foothills of Catalina Mountains 1 mile from the Sabino Canyon Recreation area. The views of the city and mountains were incredible. The house is set up well and Jason knows how to operate a rental and does it well. Everything you need is there. The house is incredibly livable. Huge kitchen, great room with comfortable furniture, theater area off the living room, large office, all set up very well. The house is very private at the end of the road up the mountain. Elderly can't walk to the house, the hill is too steep to get up but there is room to park at the bottom of the driveway if you want to walk from the house. No pool or hot tub, but Ventana Canyon offers monthly memberships and they're putting in a new second pool plus have excellent workout facility. Great restaurants, golf courses and shopping nearby. You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Just to clarify. There isn't even a single step, or hill of any kind to get from the top of the driveway, or garage area to the entrance of the house. There is a hill from the road up the driveway, but one you've driven up, it's flat and easy to get in the house.

Sabino Canyon Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I typically stay in several, upper end VRBO homes a year and have done so for many years. This house ranks as one of my favorites. From fast internet and wireless printer to touch faucets and automatic toilets, this house is loaded with modern convenience features. It's equipped with a built-in, whole home entertainment system with remote control. Waking up and sitting down with a fresh cup of coffee and listening to some soft music while the sun rose between the mountain peaks was incredible. Just as enjoyable was watching the sun set while sitting out on the expansive deck. The house is situated perfectly so that the wall of windows on the southeast and southwest sides of the house give amazing views of the sunrise and sunset. The showers and bathrooms were wonderful. The kitchen was very well equipped with soft close cabinets, two coffee makers (Keurig and fresh ground), toaster oven, large refrigerator, and tons of counter space. The furniture in the TV room was very comfortable and made watching the giant flat screen TV a pleasure. The bed was very comfortable with a variety of pillows. The property itself offers great privacy, which is hard to come by in the area. The location is extremely convenient. Restaurants, food shopping, hiking, and other activities were just minutes away. I would HIGHLY recommend this VRBO for anyone traveling to the area.
