Rhodes Ranch opens water park

Dunhill Homes is turning up the heat this weekend with the opening of its popular Fun Zone Water Park and a spring sales event at Rhodes Ranch in southwest Las Vegas.

“During our spring sales event, we are offering thousands in savings on top of up to $10,000 in upgrades we were already offering new homebuyers in Rhodes Ranch,” sales agent Jimmy Jones said. “With 12 floor plans to choose from and dozens of options to stay fit and have fun with your friends and neighbors, there is no better value than Rhodes Ranch.”

Details on the limited-time sales event are available in the community’s sales office.

“Stop by this weekend and you will see just how much you get for your money at Rhodes Ranch,” Jones said. “And the incredibly popular Fun Zone Water Park is open for the season, so there will be no shortage of families out enjoying their community.”

The Fun Zone, Dunhill Homes’ one-of-a-kind water park at Rhodes Ranch, is adjacent to the multimillion-dollar Rhodes Ranch recreation center. The Fun Zone has a 13,000-square-foot lagoon pool with wading areas, a 10,000-square-foot water park with three speed slides, five kid slides, rope bridges, multiple squirt gun stations and an oversized bucket that fills and tips over every five minutes.

The Fun Zone also includes a 25-meter lap pool, two eight-person spas, a 12-person spa, four large covered cabanas, one exterior lighted basketball court, two sand volleyball courts, four lighted tennis courts and a children’s playground with activity structures.

“And it is exclusively available to Rhodes Ranch residents and their guests,” Jones said. “No more waiting in line and fighting the crowds at public pools and water parks. At Rhodes Ranch, it’s all yours.”

Rhodes Ranch offers residents a 35,000-square-foot recreation center that includes an indoor workout room with weights and cardiovascular equipment; a full-length indoor basketball court; and two racquetball/handball courts. Residents can participate in a variety of group classes including pilates, yoga, kickboxing, total body conditioning and circuit training in the group exercise room.

Rhodes Ranch offers homebuyers 12 single- and two-story floor plans ranging from 1,532 to 3,649 square feet. Prices start in the mid-$200,000s.

Rhodes Ranch homes include gourmet cooking islands, granite countertops, maple wood cabinetry, Whirlpool appliances, Moen chrome faucets and paver driveways and walkways are all standard features. Most include Dunhill Homes’ oversized garages and signature valet.

“Rhodes Ranch couples these amazing home values with some of the lowest homeowner’s association dues in the area,” Jones said. “And with no SID (special improvement district) fees, you get more bang for your buck at Rhodes Ranch than any other community in Las Vegas.”

The Rhodes Ranch golf course rounds out the community’s features. Architect Ted Robinson Sr. designed the 18-hole championship course with layouts offering a mix of challenge and playability for golfers of all levels.
