About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

The perfect place to relax and enjoy warm weather and desert scenery. Shaded patio or sunny point watching the fish and many different water fowl and other birds as they winter in Arizona. Entertain comfortably with a spacious kitchen and family area, but come morning, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea on the point as the sun rises. At night, you will enjoy the comforts of the master suite and truly feel relaxed at the end of the day. To provide privacy for your house guests, the two room casita with bath is accessed through the front courtyard.

This home will feel like your own private resort.

Why Steve Calkins chose Bay Pointe At Ventana Lakes

We love our home in Ventana Lakes! Mornings on the patio by the lake watching the fish, ducks, quail and hummingbirds. Idyllic.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy walking around the lake on the flat pathways, or riding our bikes through the neighborhood. No traffic and easy access to stores, activities and restaurants.

Our home was built in 2004 and furnished by Ethan Allen and Robb & Stuckey, we decorated our home in resort casual. Upgraded kitchen, flooring, lighting and window treatments. The master bedroom and bath are very appealing with large shuttered windows opening to the lake. The open style kitchen living area include a formal dining room (seats 10) and a more casual table that seats eight. The living area opens to a covered patio overlooking the lake and adjoins the 'pointe' patio where you can dine, enjoy the gas fire pit, fish or kayak. The patio is sheltered by large Palo Verde trees and Sonoran landscape. Barbecue and herb garden are on the side of the house. In the courtyard is a furnished casita with full bath for your guests. High speed and wireless internet provided along with 60" HDTV (includes cable). Bedding, towels, dishes, cooking needs, two car garage, water filtration system and second refrigerator freezer in the garage.
