We have designed this vacation home experience to be unforgettable for you. Being avid travelers ourselves, we know firsthand the central importance that a beautiful and unique home can play in making your vacation a resounding success.
This high-end desert retreat, situated on a one-acre lot in the quiet drama of the outdoors, provides access to the best Scottsdale has to offer. The three-tiered pavered back patio with view fence grants you unhindered views of majestic Four Peaks as it broods over the Superstition Mountains. You may very well observe wildlife from the patio, or witness the pitchy howls of roving coyotes (don't worry, you're all safe, including your pets)!
The home experiences very little traffic noise, yet it is close to Dynamite Rd. Beautiful mature landscaping, built-in BBQ, a fire pit for fun evenings, a shaded patio, and comfortable furniture means you can enjoy a meal in the beautiful outdoors, day or night. Like we said - unforgettable!
The private courtyard features a fountain and desert garden with furniture: perfect for sunbathing (with or without tan lines!), reading and relaxing.
GRAND PLAYER PIANO with a large range of discs, from classical to show tunes, jazz to the Beatles!
Full gourmet kitchen (650 square feet), office, spacious living room with bar, plush master quarters, and very relaxing bedrooms make for a delightful living experience. All mattresses are extremely comfortable. Hi-speed internet access, games, books, movie selection, HDTVs with Blue Ray means you'll enjoy your stay.
Rest assured that for this home, the reality is -better- than the pictures. We've received this comment a number of times from guests, though the photos were professionally done.
We are so proud of all there is to see and do in our part of Scottsdale! Make sure to zoom out on the map when you reach the "Location" portion of this listing to see some of the nearby attractions. The Tom's Thumb, Pemberton, Fraesfield or Pinnacle Peak hikes are all within ten minutes of the home and offer the best walking experiences that Scottsdale has to offer. There are golf courses nearby such as Troon North, as well as horseback riding (ask about free golf brochure).
Amazing Optional Amenity: Village Health Club Access (extra fee varies with length of stay and number of occupants). 17 minutes from the home (but nearby to other attractions and restaurants), gain access to Arizona's most exclusive fitness club: the Village at DC Ranch. This magnificent 81,000 square foot club provides all the fitness and sports amenities you desire, including two temperature controlled pools. The club also features a full-service day spa and hair salon, a separate wing for children which includes a junior basketball court, kid's club, nursery and outdoor play area, mountain biking featuring organized rides throughout the area, a member's business office and private meeting rooms, award-winning cafe and pro shop boutique. This club is one of the best things going in all of Scottsdale! We definitely recommend it, particularly if pool access is important.
So there you have it: create a get-away for you and your loved ones that is simply intense. If you have any questions about our home or the area, drop us a line or call us. Don't be a stranger - we're here to help! We're glad to serve you any way we can, and we hope that you choose our home for your stay in Scottsdale.

About Adam or Lindsay Zingg
We greatly enjoy the beauty of Arizona, and have many family members in the nearby town of Fountain Hills that also draws us to the area. We have found ourselves moving around quite a bit for work and further education during the last several years, yet have been able to spend a good bit of time in Scottsdale as well. We consider ourselves food and wine enthusiasts, excited to try cuisine from most any country. We also enjoy the outdoors, and manage to do a lot of camping in Arizona's mountains, or nearby California, Utah or Colorado.
Adam or Lindsay Zingg purchased this House in 2005
Why Adam or Lindsay Zingg chose Rio Verde Foothills
Our property is very unique in that it is extraordinarily peaceful, with its mountain views, and large expanses of open land, all within 15-25 minutes off all that North Scottsdale, Carefree, and CaveCreek have to offer. We are the original owners and fell in love with the luxury of the home, combined with its practicality and spaciousness.
What makes this House unique
While looking for our home in Arizona, were were primarily attracted to the peacefulness and quiet drama of the desert. We have enjoyeded many nights of grilling surf and turf, turning on our player piano, and sitting outdoors with a glass of wine under the bright stars. Our area of the desert is at a slightly higher elevation than the rest of the valley, and so we also loved that the temperatures can be up to 10 degrees cooler than most of Phoenix! In the summer, this means cooler nights, where you can still enjoy the outdoors.

A Very Enjoyable Visit
We hope others will have similar opportunity to experience a stay in the Scottsdale area with this property. Unique, more than worthwhile, and very good coordination with and by the owners. The neighbors were helpful on the rare occasion we met them during a hike. Everyday we gained greater appreciation of the views and facilities provided. Your patience in waiting for the desert wildlife will be rewarded in the East facing venue. The west facing courtyard was wonderful in the warm mornings with its shade and breezes. Star gazing was wonderful and the dawns and sunrises very nice. The property is well maintained and equipped. Yes we will return , the Good Lord willing, not worried about the creek rising.
The house was just perfect for my family. Lots of room to visit, the outdoor area was fabulous. The house was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Very impressed!!
Thank you so much Julie - it was a pleasure having you, and please come visit us again.
A great spot at the edge of the city
We enjoyed the house, location and hospitality across our stay. We were there for 2 days of business meetings and 4 days of cycling, so I can say, whatever your needs, this space is great and Adam made it super easy.
Hi Ed - thank you so much for the review. It was wonderful having you as guests, and please reach out the next time you're in the Valley.
Nice place in northern Scottsdael
We stayed at the home for two weeks and had a lovely time. The house, and the owners, are especially nice, and we would not hesitate to book again.
Hello Brad, thank you so much for these kind words. You're a great guest to have, and we really hope that you visit us again.
Spectacular place in a true desert community. Great hosts. We would definitely stay again.
Loved the location and the house itself was perfect for us. We felt totally at home.
Thank you Bob and Sara - please come again. You were a treat to work with, and I'm glad you were able to make it to the Southwest. Enjoy Sedona!
Excellent! So relaxing & peaceful
Thank you Adam & Lindsay for a wonderful vacation in your beautiful home! Your home was so peaceful and the perfect setting for our family to gather over the Christmas holiday. We are so grateful for your hospitality and for accommodating us so nicely. Everything was perfect, from the size of the home, to the decor, the amazing outdoor setting/views, hiking trails, location...just everything! You made it so easy for our family to truly enjoy time together. Thanks again for helping us to spend the holidays together...was much needed.
Michelle, it was a real pleasure. Both you and your sister were great to deal with, and we love it when we know people have a great time at our place. Blessings, and a speedy return to the Valley!
We are located in the northeast corner of Scottsdale, which has plenty to see and do! This is a perfect address to experience the West in its astounding and natural glory. We live in a small neighborhood with homes that were built over the last ten years. The unencumbered views of the mountains to the East are unforgettable. We're about 1/3 of a mile south of Dynamite Road, so there is very little road noise. It is quiet and expansive. About four miles up are beautiful horse ranches. Our home is perfect for dining in the back patio, or hiking right out the gate in the back of our yard.
