About Susan Ringstad

My name is Susan Ringstad. I live in Alaska with my husband Phil and two boys ages 19 &16. We have owned our home in Anthem for over five years now.

We have our own business in Alaska which keeps us busy, but whenever we can we love to get some winter sunshine and warmth at this home. Since this is our vacation spot we have taken care to give it a real resort feel as we want it to be a place where we can relax and feel like we are taking a trip to a five star resort.

Susan Ringstad purchased this house in 2011

Why Susan Ringstad chose Rio Vista

We began looking for a place in Arizona, and visited many different locations many which had a lot of positives, but the moment we came to Anthem I just knew this is where I wanted to be.

I love the community feeling here, the people were very friendly and there really doesn't seem to be a 'bad part of town'.

I really didn't want to be in a big city but yet I love that I can be in Scottsdale or down town Phoenix in under 30 minutes. It really is the best of both worlds I think!

Anthem has great shopping at the outlet mall, wonderful walking trails with great mountain views, many restaurants and grocery stores everything we need.

I love that it is just over 30 minutes from the airport and is an easy drive. We gave our realtor a list of what we were looking for and this property hit the nail on the head!

What makes this house unique

My husband actually saw this house and we put in an offer while I was still in Alaska. He kept saying 'You are going to love it'.....but i was still nervous having not seen it.

Well, I LOVED IT, when we get to go there I love the tall ceilings and the open feeling of the house.

We spent alot of time decorating (which I love to do) with some high end items yet it is a really comfortable feeling. We added many upgrades, especially to the yard. We added the spa to the pool and re-did all the pool with upgraded pebble-tec, we put in the bbq kitchen, the gas firepit and pavers and added the pergola by the spa.

This has made my absolute favorite spot is by the pool and anywhere outside in the yard. The yard is very private there are no big houses overlooking the place (this was a main requirement of mine in our purchase was private yard).

We have been blessed with such a wonderful place and love that we can share the experience with others.

We have many of the same people stay each year that I truly appreciate as I know they are taking care and enjoy it as much as we do!

Beautiful Home, Family Friendly Community

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and huge, and as many reviewers have said, the photos don't do it justice. There were 9 of us (4 adults, 5 children) and we had plenty of room. The backyard is beautiful, we spent many many hours there and when we did go out, the community recreation area was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Only minor complaint was that the kitchen could be better stocked. Susan, the owner, was really easy going, communication was excellent, and she responded quickly to any issues we had while at the house.

Very nice, the house was exactly as advertised. The owners were very easy to work with and responsive to any issue that came up. I would rent this place again.

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home during September and had an absolutely fabulous time. The pictures/description on the website are an accurate reflection of the property and it was extremely clean, very spacious and beautifully decorated. Each and every room is very tastefully furnished. The house is situated in a lovely quiet neighbourhood with several community pathways which we used to walk around. It is also conveniently situated close to various supermarkets and shops. The bicycles located in the garage were a definite bonus for us - we used to cycle around each day taking in the lovely views. We have been vacationing in Anthem for three years now and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this area/community.

We wanted to have a relaxing vacation and this home lived up to our expectations and was extremely comfortable. We chilled out each day in the huge private yard with stunning views of the mountains in the background; it was very well maintained/designed and we made full use of the lovely outdoor furniture and the barbeque area throughout our stay. The large pool with its 4 wok water features was so refreshing and welcoming. My husband thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the spa each afternoon.

Liaising with Susan, the owner, was a pleasure. She was very helpful and responded promptly to our various questions prior to booking and during our stay. The rental process itself was very simple right from initial booking through to prompt return of the security deposit. All instructions relating to the property were easy to follow. We would definitely recommend this beautiful home for a super relaxing vacation. We would have loved to have stayed again for our next vacation in March 2014 but, having already looked at the calendar, the home is booked up for the dates we require. Hopefully we will be able to stay again on a future trip to the Anthem area.

Once again, many thanks Susan for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Spring in Arizona

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property! Very well equipped, great furnishings and plenty of room for anybody having guests visits or multiple couples/larger families. The listing and pictures are very accurate and the property/area are even nicer in person. We found Anthem had everything we needed and more and particularly enjoyed the biking and walking paths and lanes. Great location for trips to Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Extremely well planned and maintained area. The owner, Susan, was fantastic to work with and we really appreciated the prompt refund of our security deposit. We would not hesitate to rent this property again or recommend it to friends travelling to the Southwest!

Lovely home, much bigger and better than expected

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the home justice. It's much larger than it looks, and with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a well-stocked kitchen connected to the great room with a cozy fireplace, and separate media room there's plenty of room for 3-4 couples or a large family. The pool area and hot tub are very private, with built in BBQ and bar. We especially enjoyed the gas fire pit and hot tub because it was quite cool while we were there. There were 3 bikes and a ping pong table in the garage, and a Wii available -- we didn't use them, but appreciated that they were there if we wanted them. Nearby access to grocery stores and fast food joints, but there are not a lot of restaurants in Anthem. We found ourselves driving 30-40 minutes to get to Carefree, Scottsdale or Kierland to eat dinner. So half the time we ate in and enjoyed being "home." On the plus side, Anthem is only 90 minutes from Sedona, which is a fantastic day trip. The owner was delightful to work with, the house was spotless when we got there, and my only complaint is I lost the coin toss for the master suite (gorgeous!). Bottom line, I'd highly recommend this house to discerning travelers with a taste for luxury.

There are numerous beautiful walking paths right out the door, hiking nearby, 15 minutes to lake pleasant, minutes from Anthem Outlet shopping mall.

Beautiful community park features a water fall, catch and release fishing and great park facilities.

We have bicycles on site that we can not guarantee their condition (we make sure they are working well each visit we have) that you are free to borrow.
