About the property

We prefer a month or at the minimum 15 nights

Two years ago we actually rented this house, and loved it.

When we came back this year it was on the market. We had

“Bonded” and luckily we were able to purchase it.

It is a great cozy home, easy to keep clean, yet set up to enjoy with visiting friends and family.

The great thing about Rio Verde is the variety of things to do.

From a wonderful art program, and art group, to country dancing, exercise groups, tap, swimming and water exercise, bridge, this spot has it all.

You will never get tired of being in Rio Verde.

Randy loves it for the golf, but also because he can hop on his mountain bike and take off for McDowell Mountain Park, adjacent to Rio Verde, and enjoy an easy or challenging ride. Our friends ride road bikes, there

Are a whole group to ride with and a bike lane just outside the entrance to

Rio that will take you to Fountain Hills for coffee.

Horseback riding, less than a mile away, lots of classes, bridge, country swing,

You name it.

This is not an 80's sprawling McMansion...!! It is a modest home just steps from the golf course, offers two full bedrooms, one king, one queen bed + a fold out couch for the grandkids. Great cooks kitchen, with everything you need to make a meal, (but why would you with two clubhouses, Fountain Hills and Scottsdale just a quick drive away?)

There is a full size washer and dryer, eat in kitchen and full seperate dining room. We JUST furnished it and it is

really a vacation spot.

About Chris

Randy is a retired architect, I am retired from sales. Randy now spends most of his time on the golf course and on his mountain bike. Although I play golf, really: I am a watercolorist with lots of inspiration both in AZ winters and summers in Colorado.

Chris purchased this house in 2013

Why Chris chose Rio Verde

We had a hard time finding a spot that would offer art classes and an art group for me, and mountain biking that did not involve Randy loading his bike on his car to get to fun rides. Golf was also a must! We found it all in Rio Verde

Welcomeing great community. Lots and lots to do, great folks

What makes this house unique

We know of no other spot in any other area that offers all the fun and convience that Rio Verde and specifically our home can offer, lots of activities at clubhouse/gym, golf, mountain biking, art group, great patio for entertaining or intimate dinners, great kitchen and an offce space for each of us.

Nice, comfortable home.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Rio Verde. We fell in love with this community, so much to do including golf, pickleball and more. This home is nicely furnished and equipped with everything you need, including lots of nice dishes, quality pots and pans, luxurious linens and several televisions including a smart tv in the great room. We would come back again. If the landscaping was improved we would rate this property 5 instead of a 4.

Owner's Response: We felt great sharing our home with these folks. I could tell immediately that they were a good fit not only for our home, but our community. Glad you enjoyed it!! Our beloved tree out back died last summer I guess that didn't help. Also neighbors butchered the climber next door facing us. no excuses....only, first we upgraded on the inside. next the outside. Hope we get to meet one day. Chris and Randy

Lovely southwestern decor

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully and tastefully furnished, way beyond what we would have expected in a rental. All the amentities and space that could be expected, plus a beautiful location next to the golf course in a community that has many recreational opportunities.
