Rhett and I were invited to spend a day at the new up and coming apartment complex NOVEL Rio by Crescent Communities (added hyperlink), where home becomes the adventure. We were blown away by the numerous amenities, colorful murals, and spacious floor plans. In the heart of downtown Tempe, NOVEL Rio couldn’t be in a better location. We were just a short walk from Tempe Town Lake, local shops and grabbing drinks from the Farmer Arts District . Follow along as we explore all that this beautiful community has to offer!



fully stocked gear room


With our love for adventure the gear room stopped us in our tracks! We were blown away by all of the supplies they have on hand for you! Everything is BRAND NEW and top of the line. From bikes and Yeti coolers to kayaks and paddle boards, all that is left is for you to step outdoors!


State-of-the-art gym

Two words - MOVING NOW. Just for this gym. All your bases are covered from free weights to machines and fully loaded treadmills with Hulu and Netflix options. They also have a spin room with spin classes you can choose from on the TV. We were in heaven here - especially Rhett.


Spacious interiors


NOVEL Rio has you covered with studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom floor plans to meet your various needs. Each of which comes equipped with high-end finishes and hardwood-style flooring throughout. Perfect for the gram;). We had fun lounging in their stylish model apartment. I’ll take one of everything please!


outdoor areas


My artsy side was getting a kick out of the colorful murals decorating the various courtyards and grilling areas. This particular mural sits just on the other side of a rooftop entertainment area with fire pit and grill. We also spotted one above the dog run! Kya, our pup, would love it here!


Luxury Pool and Spa

LAST BUT NOT LEAST! The beautiful pool and spa. We could have spent all day here lounging on the chairs and cooling off in the water. No detail was looked over. They even have charging stations for your phones or portable speakers and a misting area to keep cool while you get a tan. If you take a tour of the property and sign a lease, make sure you mention my name and blog post and you’ll get your $200 administration fee waived!
