Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday studio in Rio Verde

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Here's an affordable way to experience scenic Rio Verde with its mountain and desert views, and easy access to dozens of golf courses, dining, shopping and all the great attractions of the American Southwest.

Enjoy outdoor cooking, dining and TV watching in this quaint southwestern style guest casita. The indoor space features one bedroom, a sitting area with TV and a full bath in 350 sf. Outdoors you can relax in the 350 sf covered patio area which houses the living/ dining space, a TV, and a well equipped kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave/ convection oven, dual hotplate, barbecue, blender, coffee maker and toaster. This well sheltered patio area is attached to the casita and has walls on two sides. It is heated by propane patio heaters and is adjacent to the pool and hot tub. New upgrades for the fall of 2014 include a 48 in. LED TV in the outdoor area, a larger refrigerator, and a new pillowtop mattress.

The Rio Verde Golf & Country Club offers a one week golf membership at $250 per person for unlimited golf on their two Tom Lehman designed courses. (Check out their website for more details.) Tonto Verde and Vista Verde offer three public courses within 2 miles, and there are dozens of courses within a 15 - 45 minute drive. Heated pools, a hot tub, a workout room and tennis courts are available at the community center.

Wifi and telephone are provided, including unlimited local calls and up to $20 of long distance calls to the US and Canada. Laundry service is provided for sheets and towels and guests may access washer/dryer facilities in the main house if necessary. Small, friendly dogs are permitted with advance notice and a pet deposit.

There's nothing better than enjoying a drink in the hot tub while checking out the stars.

Ken & Pat share their home with 3 Shelties, 5 indoor cats, and a changing cast of foster pets for local animal rescues. We designed and built the house ourselves in 2006-2007.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had the pleasure to start off my retirement (March 3-16) with a wonderful stay at the casita that Ken and Pat own in Rio Verde. They were wonderful hosts and provided all the necessities that one needs to enjoy a sunny warm Arizona vacation. The casita is large, roomy, and spotless on the inside and the outdoor kitchen and living area allow you to eat meals and enjoy the wonderful fresh air (and incredible nightime stars). It's fun to watch t.v. outside and then when it gets a little chillier later at night, you can go into the casita and watch t.v. in there. I traveled with my father-in-law and we had a wonderful time! There are two Tom Lehman designed golf courses a mile (2km) away that were in fantastic condition and two more courses within a 10 minute drive, that were in wonderful condition, as well. Fountain Hills is a ten minute drive away and this is where you would do your grocery shopping. There are some nice restaurants there and some boutique shops, as well. If cycling is your choice of activity, the roads are well-designed to accommodate cyclists and there is off-road cycling in the desert. The desert views throughout this area are wonderful. Scottsdale is an easy 25 minute drive away and the shopping is great there. If you're looking for a nice quiet vacation spot and love the outdoors, this is the place for your next vacation!

Minnesota Couple

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week of sun, away from the Minnesota winter and found it to be very relaxing. Ken and Pat were very nice and made our stay comfortable and welcoming. The outdoor living room and kitchen were just what we wanted after being trapped indoors all winter at home. Nice big couches to lay on, hot tube and pool right there also. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was clean and ready to go. The location is a bit of a drive to any services (8mi.) but it is pretty, quiet, and wild (owls hooting). We would recomend this place to anyone who is seeking more of a getaway from the big city type vacation. Fountain Hills and Cave Creek both have great places to eat and explore.

great home base to cycling NE Phoenix

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place to get in some warm weather cycling and it was perfect. Pat and Ken were very nice and very accommodating. The Casita was very comfortable, clean and fully equipped, I liked the outdoor kitchen and TV area. The road cycling was great with access to Cave Creek, Fountain Hills, and surrounding areas. Riding in McDowell mountain park was superb with the park just minutes away. An annual trip for me in the future.

Nice place to stay in the Phoenix area

  • 5 of 5

The casita was exactly as advertised. Very comfortable. Excellent patio cooking and dining area. Nice hot tub. Very comfortable, clean and well maintained accommodations in a tranquil location -- which is a bit out of the way, but it worked well in our case, being in central Arizona. The hosts, Pat and Ken, were very hospitable and helpful. And the price was more than fair. I highly recommend this place.

Desert casita

  • 5 of 5

The casita was perfect for two people. Well decorated, clean, convenient to the rio verde country club and fountain hills. The outdoor kitchen and living area complimented the ambiance and simplicity of the property. The outdoor pool and hot tub were very enjoyable. The owners live in the house adjacent to the casita and were very accommodating. I recommend renters be flexible, tough and understanding that weather conditions and desert animals may affect their experience. We loved the casita effect!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in the casita and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Pat and Ken are very accommodating and helpful. The scenery is awesome and the trails for biking are excellent. The casita was well equiped and very clean. It was a good as we expected and would return to the casita if in the area again.
