About the neighbourhood
Located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, 20 minutes from Scottsdale. Surrounded by majestic Saguaro cactus and mountain views, this location is perfect for the guest who wants to get away from it all, but still be close enough for shopping, sightseeing, restaurants and nightlife. We're in a rural area on the outskirts of Scottsdale and offer 62 acres of privacy and perfect climate! There are hundreds of trails right out our back gate to explore on foot, bicycle or by horse (stables down the road). Rio Rancho Verde offers a unique and amazing experience for even the most well seasoned travelers, the sunsets and sunrises are phenomenal!
