About Jeff Marsden

My husband and I live in North Orange County with our two daughters and family dog. We are both working professionals. I am an Educational Psychologist and he is a Sales Director. Our daughters are 8 and 10 years old. We both grew up in South Orange County and have known each other since high school. We went our separate ways for college but then bumped into each other years later and the rest is history!

Jeff Marsden purchased this house in 2015

Why Jeff Marsden chose Needles

Both my husband and I grew up boating and water skiing. Although our families didn't know each other at the time we grew up going to Lake Powell very summer for our family vacations. However since getting married, we hadn't gone water skiing in many years since we were busy building our careers and starting a family. Fast forward to more recent times, two summers ago we tagged along with our oldest daughters' friends' family for a weekend at "the river." We couldn't believe how fun it was! It brought back all the fond memories we had growing up. We also couldn't believe how great their place was and what a nugget this Rio Vista Grande community was! Before we knew it we bought a boat and went back for more and more. When an ownership opportunity presented itself, we just knew it was meant to be.

What makes this house unique

We feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to own this home. We are still pinching ourselves! The town of Needles itself is small BUT once you drive closer to the water and turn down a few side roads you enter into what seems to be like an oasis. There is much we fell in love with- the private, secure and tight knit community; the accessibility to the beach and water. We always feel very comfortable keeping our boat tethered out in the water and appreciated not having to take it in and out every day. We love how comfortable we feel letting our daughters have some freedom to go explore and play at the beach. We love that the neighbors are not only friendly but watch out for one another. I could go on and on but those were some of the highlights that convinced us that this is our home away from home. Our oasis among the business of life!!

Great time, Beautiful House

This house was perfect for our needs! It’s the second time staying and we had a great time just like last time! The boat dock and new stairs was a great addition! Love having all the kitchen stuff so we didn’t have to worry about bringing that. Would 100% recommend this house!

The property has all the necessities of home and feels like your at home.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression when you first walk in is, this truly feels like your at home. It has an amazing view from the kitchen and living area and the river view from the patio is breathtaking. The boat dock is also a major plus. It has all the necessities you need and we would definitely stay here again.

There are many activities to do year round. During peak season, water sports are the main activities. Some must dos are boating up river through the Topack Gorge to Lake Havasu. This is about a 45 minute boat ride. A more local must do is Pirates Cove and Marina. About a 10 minute boat ride down river. There is a very cool restaurant and bar. Also fun to park with all the other boats and float. The cities of Laughlin, NV and Lake Havasu City, Az are about a 30 minute drive. In Laughlin there is the Avi Casino where you will find entertainment and dining. In Lake Havasu City there is also entertainment, dining, and many day time activities. When not engaging in water sports, many people are found golfing, hiking, dirt biking, and off roading.
