About Linda Townsend

Hi my name is Linda or LT.

I am an avid golfer and road biker.

My plan is to retire in Rio Verde in the next few years, we just love it here!!!

Linda Townsend purchased this house in 2005

Why Linda Townsend chose Arizona

Love Rio Verde Community, the people are wonderful and the golf is fabulous!!!

This is an incredibly active, friendly community that welcomes all visitors.

What makes this house unique

This is a home, it is furnished as a home. We have many, many amenities that other rental homes in Rio Verde do not. Dishes, cooking utensils, wine glasses, martini glasses, electric juicer, hot water dispenser, turkey roaster, serving dishes, 2 bicycles, small portable fire pit, fruit trees, etc...

The wrap around back patio is wonderful for relaxing and grilling on the stainless steel Grill. Lots of wildlife including, quail, hawks, eagles, javelina, lynx and coyotes.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We're on our way back to Edmonton, Alberta after spending a wonderful month here. We enjoyed the quiet backyard - bird watching and seeing the odd coyote. Our dog, Webster basked in the sunshine on the back veranda & enjoyed walking around the neighborhood & visiting with the other dogs in the area.

We felt very comfortable in your home.

Wonderful Rental House at Rio Verde, Arizona!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our month-long stay at this beautiful home in Rio Verde. The house was spacious and comfortable with all the amenities. The kitchen was well-equipped with all the necessary dishes, glasses, utensils, etc. There was a lovely outside patio with several tables and comfortable chairs as well as a grill. The decor and the art work in the home are beautiful. I have a bad back and I found the bed in the master bedroom to be one of the best beds I have ever slept on. The owner of the home was very helpful and pleasant. The facilities at Rio Verde are outstanding----two great 18 hole golf courses, tennis courts, a large outdoor swimming pool with a jacuzzi, a well equipped exercise room, a library, post office, and a very helpful and friendly staff. Overall the house and the facilities at Rio Verde are "hard to beat" and we look forward to returning for another vacation. We would highly recommend this house to our friends and relatives.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our 2 year old daughter, and our two good friends decided to stay in Rio Verde for a much needed week long vacation. We chose Rio Verde, as it was an area that I often visited when I grew up (My grandparents lived in Rio Verde for 20+ years). We chose to spend the entire week relaxing at the pool, relaxing on the patio, eating good food, and playing golf. A couple of highlights...

Owner - She was incredible to work with and very quick to respond to all of the questions that we had for her.

Golf - We golfed Tonto Peaks course (good course for great price - twilight after 1:00); We-Ko-Pa Cholla course (As an avid golfer, I can say this is one of the top 5 courses I have ever played); TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course (Great course with great tradition; Suggest using GolfNow.com on the day of playing, as you can save a lot of $$ - we saved $125 on the round). We also played the Tonto Verde 18 hole putting course, which our daughter loved!

House - Beautiful home with all of the amenities; Beautiful patio with a huge area to entertain/relax; Exactly what we were looking for in a home; Nice bonus of having a computer and WiFi to use at the home.

Food - We stopped at the Safeway in Fountain Hills and bought most of our food for the entire week; We ate out twice: 1 - At Tonto Verde's Clubhouse: I would recommend going elsewhere, as the food was fair at best and the price seemed a little inflated. 2 - El Encanto in Fountain Hills: Great Mexican food, Great price, and great service!

Pool - Rio Verde pool is amazing and relaxing. Although they have aquatic class from 9-10 everyday (you can still sit on the side of the pool during this time), we had plenty of time to swim and relax in the pool/hot tub.

We did get kicked out of the Tonto Verde pool, as we tried to go one morning that we didn't golf - The owner of our property said they had a property in the Tonto Verde development, so we were good to go to that pool as well. Unfortunately, the staff at Tonto did not have our owner's name on an apparent "list" therefore we had to leave...No worries, we just went back to the Rio Verde pool.

Besides being kicked out of the Tonto Verde pool and having sub-par food at the Tonto Verde Clubhouse for dinner, it was a 5-star experience and one that we will likely do again!

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beutiful home! It was the perfect place to stay while attending my son's wedding at Tonto Verde Park. The pictures were beautiful, but do not convey the peace and welcoming we experienced upong arrival. Ray and I had two days of peace and quiet that we desperately needed, then were joined by family member for three days. Your home was extremely clean and well-maintained. Even in the extreme heat of the day it was cool and comfortable. Thank you for being so gracious and returning our calls when I forgot to bring the lockbox number and when Ray accidently repeatedly pushed redial on his phone to dial his sister and finally realizing that he had been redialing you! The wedding was beautiful and the next day we took a day trip to Sedona, which was great fun. We had a wonderful time and would like to come back again some day.
