Rio Rico House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Do you want to relax in a tranquil environment surrounded by mountains, and feel as if you have been transported to a different time and place?

Do you want the tranquil environment and easy access to activities? Do you want to enjoy it all in a new 3 bedroom 2 bath home that is comfortably furnished with a blend of modern and authentic southwestern decor?

Beautifully situated among the San Cayetano mountains, we have created the perfect place for you to call home when visiting southern Arizona.

The home includes the following features:

* Master bedroom has a king-size bed, bathroom with oversize tub, foldaway crib in the walk-in closet. Feel free to use the treadmill, or plug in and play the electric guitar.

* Second bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the third bedroom has two twin-size beds.

* All bedrooms have beautiful mountain views.

Why the Owner Chose Rio Rico: My husband and I took a trip to visit the Southwest. Our trip began with a flight to Houston, TX. We drove through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. This was a total of 17 ½ hours of driving done over a span of 12 days. It was an amazing trip. When we entered Arizona and saw Rio Rico, we fell in love with it instantly and decided to call it home when we retire. So, we bought a home and are renting it out in the meantime.

The Unique Benefits of this House: We have completely furnished the house from head to toe. All you need is your clothes and food and we have taken care of the rest. We love that you want to stay in our home and we have ensured that you will have a wonderful and comfortable time.

Away from it all! A true, peaceful experience

  • 5 of 5
Brian and Deborah have built a true oasis away from it all- a lovely home that accommodated all of our needs as a family with small children, plus a grandparent. As our first experience with a rental home, we are now convinced that there is no other way to do it! We were pleasantly surprised upon our very late night arrival that other travelers had left behind staples to get us through to the next day- juice, frozen waffles, coffee, crackers. We were sure to leave plenty of our own surplus behind, but it was a relief to not be "stuck". Of course you can't guarantee what'll be there, but it was so nice to have those amenities to help cover us until we got to the market the next day.
As a family with young children, we were happy to see that there wasn't anything to worry about as far as breakables. The Volkman's are even so thoughtful as to have a wonderful supply of toys that kept our kids very happy the entire stay! The home is tastefully decorated, but simple enough to not feel like you were impeding on someone else's space.
Brian was excellent to work with and was very accommodating in communicating with me prior and during our stay. The home was very clean and well maintained.
We spent a day in Madera Canyon, Saguro National Park and Pima Air and Space Museum. There was plenty more to do, but honestly the house was so inviting, comfortable and relaxing, we ended up spending more time in the home than going out! We made a couple trips to Tucson and did our grocery shopping in Green Valley- we never actually even made it into the town of Rio Rico. Mostly we spent our time relaxing in the 70-80 degree weather and enjoyed walks and bike rides in the morning, and dinner at sunset--- not pictured is a covered patio with a table set which is perfect for enjoying the beautiful view.
Thank you, Brian and Deborah, for making our vacation as great as we could have imagined. Five stars!

Peace and quiet

We had a nice, relaxing Christmas with our daughter in a home setting. It is very comfortable and the laundry facilities were especially handy. The directions were easy to follow as well. Dad and daughter enjoyed the treadmill and Mom enjoyed HGTV.
