If you add a third or fourth person, it's an additional $89 per night (not per person, so $228 total for the entire suite for more than 3 - 4 people). Continental breakfast is available upon request, served poolside. Sip your coffee down in the barn while the horses await their breakfast or savor a glass of wine on the deck by the pool next to the fireplace as the sun sets slowly over the mountains. We have miles of trails right out our back gate, both to the Tonto National Forest and the Scottsdale McDowell Sonoran Preserve - perfect for hiking, mountain biking or trail riding (horses available for rent 2 miles down the road). Rio Rancho Verde gives guests a relaxing alternative to the fast paced city life, yet is close enough to town to enjoy gourmet dining, first class shopping and a multitude of events and activities. We also board horses and have a separate area for those who wish to rent stalls and experience riding in the foothills and mountains of Arizona. This equine Ecoranch is committed to supporting a sustainable environment through the use of reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose practices. From the organic garden (help yourself to our veggies) to the recycled metal artwork scattered throughout the Ranch, to the rainwater recapture and solar lighting, we're all about being green and respecting the natural desert landscape in which we live. We truly live in paradise and have the best of both worlds - city access and rural relaxation. We hope you'll enjoy this special spot as much as we do! We have other listings if this one is not available - 4886885 - Western bunkhouse and 6796751, luxury travel trailer. More

The property was breathtaking! There were beautiful views of the desert in all directions. You could view the sunrises and sunsets from the outdoor spaces outside of the lodging area. It was so peaceful with the exception of a few birds singing and the coyotes...More

This was the 2nd year in a row that we've stayed at Rio Rancho Verde. The best recommendation we can make is that we booked with Carmela for next year before even leaving. Great location for hiking, beautiful panoramas, convenient to most ballparks.

About the neighbourhood
We have very few neighbors and border the Tonto National Forest, with 360 degree spectacular views There's plenty of wide open spaces, which we share with an occasional coyote or two. The last two miles to the ranch are a dirt road but it's well maintained and we're easy to find.
