Come Visit the Great Beauty of the High Sonoran Desert near Phoenix, North Scottsdale, Cave Creek, and Fountain Hills. This studio home is elegantly finished with Travertine floors, a gourmet chef's kitchen, a marble spa shower bathroom, and wonderful views overlooking the Rio Verde River Valley and out across the Tonto National Forest to the high mountains and Four Peaks. Located just 10 miles north from Fountain Hills, 10 miles from North Scottsdale and 25 miles from Phoenix. Very private home built in neo-territorial design inspired by avant garde architects of history. Built as a second story home on 1.25 acres, there is an eagle's eye view in all directions from two decks. Stars at night are close enough to count. Make friends with the families of Saguaro Cactus - the Angel Guardians of the desert. Easy access from Rio Verde Drive a major highway and only a few blocks from the main paved road. One block from the Tonto National Forest with miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horses! Two miles to the beautiful Rio Verde River! A quiet studio apartment/home yet it is still just 15 minutes to shopping in Fountain Hills or North Scottsdale, groceries, restaurants, services and more.
A one block walk from the deck and you are enfolded in the Peace of the Sonoran Desert, the Saguaro Cactus and the Tonto Nat'l forest.
This is a "Casita" or small house and it really is 1 large Studio room with Kitchen, Living, and Queen Bed (there is an Aerobed if specially needed), a marble bathroom, and a utiliy room and closet space. It is an elegant space and is kept immaculately clean and shiny.

Neil & Linda have both come to love this special natural area of the unique high sonoran desert. It rings with a special tranquility and vitality and life.
Natural Beauty, Peace, Vistas, Stars, Sunrises & Sunsets. The most wonderful hikes right from the front door.
Wonderful! just a short walk to the Tonto National Forest. Birds singing all day long. The most beautiful sunsets and sun rises. The Casita was perfect! The most comfortable bed in the world! We spent most of our time enjoying the sights and sounds on the balcony. Neil was easy to reach and very helpful. Just a little piece of Eden.
We wanted a place to unwind from the everyday stresses and this was perfect. Everything about it had attention to detail to ensure a peaceful stay from the welcoming bouquet of flowers to the beautiful relaxing music, air purifier, natural soaps, and plush towels. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. Hiking trails right outside of the casita. The beautiful patio to enjoy the view was another great feature. We loved this place and could feel the peace it radiated through Neil & Linda. They were the perfect hosts. Somehow they were there if we needed anything but not intrusive. We would highly recommend this beautiful casita and hope to be back again.

Very unique property close to amazing outdoor opportunities (running, mountain biking). Quiet, secluded, with cacti and horses for neighbours!
What a lovely little place to stay! Watching the colors play across the hills at sunrise and sunset was magical. And the stars at night ....wow! It is a place that brings calmness and peace to your mind. Loved it! Hope to come back.

What a great place to stay when visiting Scottsdale! I really enjoyed my time at this casita retreat and I plan on staying here again next year. The retreat is close to hiking trails, which I walked every morning, but close enough to Scottsdale to have a nice dinner at night. On my hike I saw wild horses, coyotes, grouse, and other wildlife; the scenery is absolutely breath taking. The retreat was as shown, immaculate. Loved it!
What a cool place... everything was modern and clean, and the desert views were gorgeous. Neil was very responsive and made sure we had what we needed. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
While on a business trip to Phoenix, I had the good fortune of booking my stay at this Casita. Owners Neil and Linda were kind and so helpful in every way. The Casita is of excellent quality and very comfortable. It was spotlessly clean. And the desert location is fantastic! From the second-story balcony of this Casita, one can enjoy endless views of the Arizona desert overlooking the Rio Verde river basin..... and views of mountain ranges in the distance. Peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend this Casita!
