Our ground floor unit is bright and spacious. The condo complex is beautifully landscaped with native plants, some always in fragrant bloom. Guests enjoy two clubhouses, each with an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, complete office and WiFi access, a complete exercise room, and party facilities. The tennis court and barbecue area complete a flawlessly maintained and spotless facility.
The Catalina foothills, northeast of Tucson, offer beautiful and private accommodations with easy accessibility to most of the valley in less than 30 minutes. This impeccably maintained condo complex backs up to national forest at the mouth of a spectacular canyon filled with Saguaro cactus. The close by trailhead offers a chance to hike in a pristine part of the high Sonoran desert. The neighborhood roads are steep and curvy with little traffic. The temperature dips at night and following renowned sunsets, the sky becomes bejeweled. Below, the valley sparkles under a blanket of lights. Top 100 golf is available a quarter mile away at two Tom Fazio gems.
The most beautiful location: Tucson is a premier winter destination. The Catalina foothills had the first foothill homes in Tucson because of the elevation and stunning beauty coupled with a breathtaking view of the valley and city lights. There are very few roads that go this high and close to the mountains. There are no other Tucson condo complexes in such a setting, only expensive private homes.
This golf on the bucket list: World famous winter golf in Tucson is even better than it looks on TV. Memories of certain shots, certain moments in the desert sun, will last forever. Great golf from city municipal to many semi-private to renowned resorts is available. At a resort only a quarter mile from here, are two Tom Fazio gems, the Canyon course and the Mountain course. These are both ranked every year in the top 100 courses open to the public nationally. The proximity can mean big savings in green fees. Details, course descriptions and phone numbers, available at condo.
A nice daytime walk, less guilt at supper: There are some good restaurants within a few miles. This condo complex location, however, offers a great drive into the valley down Craycroft which becomes a major avenue once it exits the foothills. You can peel off on main arteries to the University, downtown and other points west or continue straight to South side. Here, most intersections have at least two Mexican restaurants. Most would agree, Tucson has the best Mexican food in the US. It's the only place you can order carne seca.
We live in Flagstaff, Arizona, and wanted to have a place in Tucson since we first met there while attending the University of Arizona in the 70's. This area in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains is our favorite!
Ginnie Moore purchased this condo in 2010
This complex is nestled in the foothills along with multi-million dollar homes. There was no other area in Tucson with such beautiful close up views of the Catalinas, in our opinion. It is so quiet and peaceful, away from the traffic. Driving into town is so easy and a beautiful drive.
We love hiking and being able to access the trail from our condo is a real plus! The weather during the winter in Tucson can't be beat. The heated pool, hot tub, and gym sold us on this spectacular condo complex. Also, the proximity to Lowe's Ventana Canyon resort (within a half mile or less) is also a draw as we can just walk to go eat a wonderful meal at one of their restaurants. Just down the road at Sunrise and Kolb are more restaurants, a drugstore, grocery store, an art museum, and more!
My husband and I just returned from warm, sunny Tucson a week ago, and we've already booked another 3 weeks at this lovely condo for 2016!! We can't wait! The owners are very kind and helpful, as well as promptly replying. This condo offers hikers a fantastic place to hike into Ventana Canyon, as well as a nice swimming pool. We also enjoyed our trip to the top of Mt. Lemmon, our sunset horseback ride in Saguaro National Park, trips to Tombstone, the Sonoran Desert museum (we especially enjoyed seeing the javelinas!), and our trip to Mission San Xavier. The beautiful mountains all around Tucson and this condo are a huge plus, too!! We had a fantastic time!!
The condo more than met our expectations. It was clean and comfortable. The condo property amenities were very nice: hot tub, pool and club house. The location at the foot of the mountains was lovely, a residential neighborhood with nearby hiking trail and bike lanes.
The owner was very personable and professional.
Definitely, recommend this property to family.
This is my second visit to Tucson and it is a friendly, active, lovely vacation spot where one can get a really comfortable "western" experience; or, not.
We like the casual vacation atmosphere of renting vs. staying in a hotel when we vacation with family and friends.
My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous condo! It is so tastefully decorated with a southwestern motif. The beds are quite comfortable along with the comfy living room furniture. We were pleased with the well stocked kitchen and nice dining area. The patio seemed so private with the decorative metal shields - very tastefully done!
My husband enjoyed the amazing golf courses nearby, while I found great pleasure in the hiking trails and shopping. We both loved the variety of delicious restaurants!!
The pool and hot tub are wonderful! We spent beautiful days swimming, reading, and chatting with
friends in this area.
The views are spectacular, especially at night. We plan to be back every year!
I can not say enough good things about this condo and the owners! My roommate and I are traveling physical therapists and relocate to a new city every thirteen weeks...this condo wins the prize! Location can't be beat, close to restaurants, shopping, and multiple hiking trails! Everything you could wish for is furnished by the owners. Clean condo complex, the pools are awesome and there is a great gas grill that we took full advantage of! Most importantly though, the Moore's are genuinely nice people and were very accommodating to us throughout our stay. As a regular user of homeaway.com I recommend this property 100%! I hope you enjoy your time in Tucson as much as we did!!
Great location, and we really enjoyed Tucson and opportunities to see and enjoy the area. The Ventanna Canyon condos were well maintained and a very comfortable area to spend our vacation. We enjoyed the warm weather and getaway from Mn.
