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 unparalleled. 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).
Please include your contact information in your inquiry. We like to do a FaceTime or Skype video call before booking, just to make sure you and I both know this is a legitimate rental.
[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.]

What an amazing house! The views are worth every penny. We were anxious to wake up before dawn so we could sip coffee on the wrap around porch and watch the sun paint the valley below. The sunsets and city lights at night are equally impressive. No noisy neighbors to deal with. Once you get up the driveway switchbacks you are in your own private compound. The house has a well stocked kitchen and there is a very nice grocery store located just outside of the gated community. The pool was great and we loved how it was detached from the house. We also enjoyed the gym and heated lap pool down at the club. My teenage kids appreciated the fast wi-fi. I would highly recommend the drive up to the top of Mt. Lemmon and hiking in the Sabino Canyon Rec Area which is just down the street. Overall, a fantastic stay. Thank you Dr. Theo for sharing your home with us!

Beautiful house in a great location. Fantastic views. The photos online don’t do the views justice. Very spacious house with plenty of room for our family of four. Safe gated golf community. Would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Tucson!

This house is in (actually above) a beautiful neighborhood and has views that are truly spectacular. The house is very comfortable and well provisioned. I would only caution that if you are not familiar with the neighborhood and arrive at night you may need help finding your way up to the house.
