Wonderful House in an Amazing Setting
Submitted: April 10, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
We stayed in this home for the month of March, 2013. It was our first visit to Sedona so like everyone else, were wonder struck by the beauty of the area. But first let us comment on the house.
It is much larger than it appears from the outside, well laid out with large bedrooms and large family room area. The house is well maintained and very clean, and is stocked with every thing one could imagine and more!
The Pellet stove was so warming on a few cold evenings and we even used the out door fire pit while we were outside stargazing. The BBQ was awesome and situated in the 2-tiered back yard, which was huge and well thought out.
Artha & Roger, who divide their time between the house next door and Phoenix, were wonderful and very hospitable. Each morning when they stayed next door we received a local paper and as well supplies for the house. They gave us our space but were there to greet us upon arrival and give us a tour, and as well were there to say good-bye shortly before we left.
While not really outdoor people, we became involved in hiking the beautiful trails in the surrounding area and this became the highlight of our stay. Our favorites were Cathedral Rock, Devils Bridge and the Arches.
We visited the Out of Africa Wildlife Park, taking our daughter and granddaughter and it was excellent and gave very up close and personal visits with wild animals from around the world. A visit to the Airport is a must with a fabulous view of Sedona.
We visited nearby Cottonwood and as well recommend a trip to Jerome which is an experience unto itself, like stepping back in time to an old western town out of a Clint Eastwood movie. In the town is the most interesting Kaleidoscope shop that made the trip worth it, just by itself.
As to local restaurants we loved and highly recommend the Market Place cafe in the Factory outlets in Oak Creek. The food was great and they had some amazing musical talent and Ken the owner made sure you were treated like special guests. As well we had great meals at the Red Chopstick, which was a block or so from the house and as well Olde Sedona Bar & Grill in Sedona which served an awesome meal for a reasonable price.
Overall, this was one of the very best VRBO properties we have ever stayed at and is a bargain at the monthly rental rate.
You will love Sedona, and Roger & Artha will make it magical!!
