Ventana Lakes has been the perfect community for my husband and I. We wanted something outside Phoenix but still close enough for a day trip. We're about 30-35 minutes from Phoenix but everything we need is right here in Peoria. We like that this community is a lot smaller than most of the huge ones in Phoenix and Surprise. We wanted to feel more like a part of a community rather than just another neighbor. I am very active in the social activities and events while my husband prefers to do his own thing. And here we don't feel overwhelmed by too many options or too much stuff. It's just the right mix and that's probably what we like most.
