Why Lori Childers chose Rio Verde

We enjoy taking the mountain bikes out to do some trail riding in the dessert or the road bikes and riding to Fountain Hills for a morning coffee or Scottsdale. It is not too busy and the roads have bike lanes. Going jeeping has also been a past-time for our boys when they come to visit and trails are 2 miles away. Fountain Hills and Scottsdale are 10-15 miles away so you can get to almost anything you need in 30 minutes.

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet, relaxing atmosphere, the friendly people, the golf facilities. In addition the properties are not right on top of each other and not surrounded by cement walls. We love the backyard oasis setting for just sitting and relaxing. It is such a refreshing change from the MN winters.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was exceptional. The pool and the landscaping are amazing. True definition of complete relaxation and serenity. Spent 9 days there and most of our time was enjoying the pool and outdoor patio.

Beautiful Desert Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely October stay at this recently remodeled home. Plenty of space for two couples, and could easily accommodate three couples. Nicely appointed, but the TV's were missing in each of the bedrooms and den.

A lovely house, especially neat and clean. All amenities were availble, especially pool and hot tub.

  • 4 of 5

The first impression of property was amazing. The house was very spacious and very neat, everything was there you would need to move in and begin enjoying your vacation. The on site property managers were helpful and available if necessary during stay. The house is located on a golf course and at night you might just hear the singing of the coyotes, which was amazing (also some cows depending on the time). There were many species of birds in a well landscaped back yard. A pool and hot tub were included also. You are about 15 miles from Fountain Hills which has many restaurants and stores plus not than far from Scottsdale. There are many outdoor things to enjoy close by also. We enjoyed our stay and hope to come back next year.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in Tonto is this lovely home and loved every minute of our stay. The house is very pretty and spacious, the fenced yard is great and we were able to bring our 2 dogs which was a tremendous plus for us. The golf courses are great and the people in Tonto are extremely nice and welcoming. We can highly recommend this spot for your "home-away-from-home",

Great Home!

  • 4 of 5

This home is great! A real luxury residence in the middle of the desert. The caretaker and owner were a pleasure to deal with. The wildlife abounds in the neighborhood. The views while out and about in the ares are spectacular. Rio Verde is a little remote, 20 minutes to grocery store. The people at the club were very nice. It is a retirement type community and the membership is aging. So at times play was a little slow.
