Welcome to Ventana Lakes
Since 1986, Ventana Lakes has been one of Arizona’s most desirable retirement communities. Maybe it’s because this sprawling community features nine lakes packed with freshwater fish; perhaps it’s due to the dozens of clubs and activities this friendly neighborhood has to offer. Whether you’re itching to play at one of several championship golf courses just around the corner from Ventana Lakes or you crave a day (or two) of pampering at one of the community’s two spas, this 55-and-up area has everything you need. Since this gorgeous and well-appointed community is located in Peoria and Sun City, it’s close enough to Surprise and Phoenix to keep you connected with the best shopping, attractions and more.

In-Community Amenities at Ventana Lakes
The Yacht Club, Ventana Lakes’ clubhouse, features a well-equipped fitness center that blends aerobics and state-of-the-art exercise equipment with rejuvenating saunas and steam rooms. A spacious library, an expansive ballroom and several activity-themed rooms are just part of what makes the Yacht Club special; most residents feel it’s the sense of community and shared experiences that give it its comfortable, home-away-from-home atmosphere.
Sparkling community swimming pools are strategically placed throughout the neighborhoods; two are heated during the winter, so you can splash to your heart’s content all year ‘round. Arts and crafts, billiards, and water aerobics are just a handful of the myriad clubs open to residents. Enjoy monthly bus trips to casinos, on-property concerts and karaoke (even if you’d rather watch than participate) or join in games of volleyball, pickleball, bocce ball or basketball anytime, anywhere.
