Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Rio Verde Foothills - N. Scottsdale Resort Home

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6 Adults, 2 Children

Relax or entertain at our luxurious 4-Bedroom secluded retreat in N. Scottsdale with amazing views of the mountains under the dark skies and stars in the Arizona desert.

Private and serene retreat setting like no other to entertain your family and friends or have a wedding reception, Spa party, or Holiday party. Allow our property manager to customize a massage package or golf package for you and your guests. This magnificent property is on a gorgeous 1 acre enclosed yard with a multi-level patio, bar, chilled CO2 beer keg, refrigerator, 50-burger grill, two fireplaces, heated negative-edge pool (this will require an extra fee for heating), spa (no extra charge), and large covered patio with luxury style outside furniture. You can also listen to HiFi Digital sound on the outside surround sound system while entertaining, watching TV, or relaxing.

Close to all the excitement!

Just 5 min. from famous Greasewood flats and Four Seasons Resort for some great entertainment. Also 5 min. away from Troon North Golf Course and Vista Verde Golf Course; both in the Top 25 of Arizona's golf courses. 15 min. away for Cave Creek, where you can get a real western town feel and a taste of the west at Harrold's Corral and many of the restaurants on the main street. Want to be close but not too close to Barrett Jackson Car Auction, The Waste Management Phoenix Open, or any of the other N. Scottsdale events; you are only 15 to 20 min. away. You are close to Hwy 101 that's an easy 30 min. drive to Sky Harbor airport. If you want to shop, you are near Desert Ridge Marketplace, Scottsdale 101, Scottsdale Pavillion, and City North. Get serious just 30 min away at Scottsdale Fashion Square. Alright, you want to get away to a Casino; 15 to 20 minutes down the road and you have your pick from Ft McDowell Casino, Talking Stick Casino & Resort, and Casino Arizona.

Technology Available

The retreat has all of the necessary amenities including high-speed Internet, Apple TV for the latest movies from iTunes and Netflix, and satellite TV network.

A 4-car garage protects your vehicles and you are secluded away within a 6' wall that surrounds you providing you with security and privacy.

Special Event/Hosting Services available through our property manager.

If you need any special services setup, golf tee times, event tickets, VIP tickets, etc., let us know; we plan many events here and know who to contact to make sure your events are just as special.

Don't miss your opportunity to vacation in style while playing in the desert!

About Home Away From Home Vacation Rentals

We are The Kristine Taylor Philanthropies a non profit organization helping improve the lives of individuals battling life threatening health problems.

Home Away From Home Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2014

Why Home Away From Home Vacation Rentals chose Scottsdale

This property was purchased as a retreat for people who need a way and escape to Paradise!

A place where you can stay for a few days and get lost in the views of the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks and other vast reaches of mountains to the east from the home.

Relax in a heated pool and spa to exercise if need be, or just recreation; both are welcome here. The pool is serene with a negative edge waterfall that gracefully compliments the surrounding landscape.

The fireplaces at night bring that “campfire” feeling and togetherness while enjoying the million star clear black skies and the sounds of the wild.

What makes this house unique

Close to all types of restaurants, world renown golf courses, western town Carefree, outdoor hiking and riding, shopping, professional sports events, and all types activities, especially during the months from December through April.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely amazing and made our trip a thousand times better. The pool was our favorite part of the house, it was so nice to have especially during the summer when we were there. The house was spacious, we had plenty of space and were so comfortable! We definitely will be staying there again soon!

The view of the mountains at this property is unparalleled. I personally had a phenomenal experience staying at this place; I was bathed in luxury, pampered with comfort, and surrounded by gorgeous scenery. I can't wait to return in the near future.

Desert Fun

  • 5 of 5

We went with a family of six. The house was perfect! We loved the location for hiking , ATV riding, and other desert adventures and the house had a lot of amenities we enjoyed. The manger of the house was very responsive and helpful throughout our week. We want to come back!

Amazing luxury home with privacy and resort-like amenities. Highly recommended if staying in AZ.

  • 5 of 5

There were four adults and two dogs that stayed for a week. Property is well maintained, comfortable and private. The back yard pool area is the highlight. The management was responsive, professional and accommodating. House is close to Scottsdale National Golf and Fraesfield hiking trails. It's a quick 15 minute drive to DC Ranch, which has great restaurants and grocery and 5 minutes to hike Pinnacle Peak. We really enjoyed the home - inside and out. I think we have some perspective and know what people want since we also have a lake home in Brainerd, Minnesota listed on VRBO. This is a five star property. I don't know how you can go wrong staying here. Hopefully we can return soon.
