Enter the property through the professionally landscaped courtyard past the trickling water fountain, blooming cacti and mountain views. The large cedar door opens into the Foyer and Formal Dining Room with dramatic 30-foot ceilings and large iron chandeliers. While this space is expansive it is still cozy with oak furnishings and plantation shutters. As you work your way through the home, the Den is furnished with a large club chair and ottoman to cozy up with a good book or keep up on world affairs behind the large, rustic desk with wireless WiFi and printer/scanner/copier. Walk on into the Great Room with high ceilings adorned with rustic red cedar beams. You’ll find this room is calling for you to sit down in front of the gas fireplace and watch a good movie. The Great Room flows right into the Kitchen Dining Area with enough room to seat eight people! Cooking for a big group is effortless in the large gourmet kitchen equipped with all stainless steel appliances, high-end stainless cookware, forged knives, cooking utensils, Kitchen Aide free-standing mixer, several slow cookers and place settings for 16. Plus so much more!
There is a space for everyone to socialize or get away from it all! Head up the open staircase with wrought iron railings to the Bar Loft/Man Cave. This is a great space to enjoy a sports event or movie on the 65-inch flat screen SmartTV while making drinks behind the granite wet bar with stainless steel mini-frig. Get in a quick workout on the Smooth Fitness elliptical. Right off this room you can enjoy the balcony in the morning with the cup of coffee watching the sun rise over Four Peaks or in the evening sipping on a glass of wine watching the sun set behind Pinnacle Peak. This balcony also looks over the pool and putting/chipping greens. It’s a spectacular site at night with the professional landscape lighting.
After a long day retire in the Luxury Master Suite looking out the large windows enjoying the mountain views or out on the adjacent balcony with private access. The en suite features a spa-like experience with His & Hers vanities, Jacuzzi tub, large walk-in multi-head shower and a huge custom closet. Guests will also enjoy the other three fully furnished bedrooms with queen beds and baths with all the linens provided. Two of three bedrooms have shared access to another balcony with mountain views.
The large outdoor living space spans the whole back of the home with comfortable lounge seating and dining while enjoying the pool, waterfall or waiting for your meal to cook on the gas BBQ grill. Don’t worry if it is a little warm because the multiple ceiling fans help cool the area! On cool nights, gather around the gas kiva/fireplace to keep warm. Didn’t have time during the day to practice on the putting or chipping greens? Not to worry as there is a spot light so you can practice anytime! Within this walled area, you can enjoy the Arizona mountain views and weather all year round with secure privacy.

We love the southwest--warmth and open spaces! Depending on the day we're farming, enjoying all types of horsepower, golfing, camping, cooking and gardening. When we have time--relaxing and enjoying the weather is #1!
Why LuAnn chose Rio Verde Foothills
We had visited relatives in the area many times. We loved the fact that we were in the country (what we're used to!) but only minutes away from great dining, bars, attractions with all the amenities. There is never 'nothing' to do!
What makes this House unique
We love the large acreage in the rural community which reminded us of home. The home yet made us feel we were staying at a resort. Quiet, peaceful with mountain views, the pool and wonderful people! We are always counting the days to the next time we walk through the door!

Great place for a family vacation
We had a family wedding and rented this home to stay in. Everything was great. Tons of room for 8 adults and kids. We have two small children and the pool made the trip. Citrus trees and putting green rounded out the perfect outdoor space. We will definitely stay here again!
What a wonderful home!
My wife, 3 other couples and myself rented out this home for an extended weekend to celebrate a birthday. The home was excellent in everyway. I would, certainly, rent this or recommend it to anyone!!!!!
Beautiful vacation rental!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. The home, pool area, and grounds had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The inside was lovely, however, we spent most of our time outside enjoying this beautiful property. We have stayed in many VRBO rentals and the owner, LuAnn, was by far the most attentive owner we have ever worked with. Thank you for helping us escape a very long MN winter - we hope to be back!

The Midwest winters do get long (and seem to be longer this year)!!! Glad your group was able to enjoy our little place to escape the cold! Please come back soon!
Our family loved the house
This house was everything we had hoped for, the pool and patio along with the privacy was terrific. With 4 couples, there was plenty of room and we never felt crowded.
Luann was easy to work with and we would absolutely rent this house again.
Jeff and I are so glad everyone enjoyed the home! It’s hard not to relax there especially watching those sunrises and sunsets! Please come back again!
Beautiful home with wonderful accommodations!
Adults and kids had a wonderful time, enjoying the pool, hiking and biking in the neighborhood. The floor plan was such that the kids were able to enjoy hanging out in the loft as the adults were downstairs socializing, cooking and listening to music.
This was a perfect location and perfect fit for our family. We enjoyed the solitude And appreciated all the extras this house had.
Jeff and I are so glad the group had a great time enjoying the home and pool! We hope you can come back again!
