Here's an affordable way to experience scenic Rio Verde with its mountain and desert views, and easy access to dozens of golf courses, dining, shopping and all the great attractions of the American Southwest.
Enjoy outdoor cooking, dining and TV watching in this quaint southwestern style guest casita. The indoor space features one bedroom, sitting area with TV and a full bath in 350 sf. Outdoors you can relax in the 350 sf covered patio area which houses the living/ dining space, a TV, and a well equipped kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave/ convection oven, dual hotplate, barbecue, ice maker, blender, coffee maker and toaster. This well sheltered patio area is attached to the casita and has walls on two sides. It is heated by propane patio heaters and a gel fuel fireplace, and is adjacent to the pool and hot tub.
The Rio Verde Golf & Country Club offers a one week golf membership at $200 per person for unlimited golf on their two Tom Lehman designed courses. (Check out their website for more details.)
