I had read the great reviews and seen the beautiful photographs for this home, but I was still pleasantly surprised at how nice it was! The views were amazing! Not only from the two decks and hot tub, but from all living areas, the master bathroom portal window and even laying in bed(both bedrooms). The house was obviously created for the lot, since every view is utilized to the max. The location was amazing, as well. Just a short walk down a hill to the shops, restaurants and art galleries. Only a .7 mile walk to Starbucks and a wonderful outdoor patio with another great view. It was also a great place to run. There is about a four mile paved red sidewalk just down the hill and it goes through town and past a very scenic area of red rock formations. Somedays we didn't even use our car(walked to meals, shops and activities). And finally the house was amazing! I expected it to be clean and set up well to accommodate two couples, but it was much more! The furnishings were very attractive but also very comfortable(particularly the couches in both living areas). There was more than enough room to store clothing, etc.(plentiful closets and large bureaus). There was a book with easy directions for use of fireplace, hot tub, tv's, etc. This was very helpful!(we have rented many vacation homes that have not supplied this and it led to frustration). The hot tub was a perfect size, plenty big enough for two couples and could accommodate more people. It was positioned so it was sheltered from the wind and it could be accessed through the downstairs living/library area or the downstairs bedroom. We also enjoyed using the grill and outside table and chairs, cooking out several times. The house was also supplied with toilet paper, garbage bags, dishwashing and clothes washing detergent, spices, soap, shampoo, bath and beach towels and decent quality comfortable sheets. The only negatives I could come up are the following: it has lots of steps(you have to go up or down to bedrooms-kitchen and living room are on main level though). The carpet is not in perfect condition(just noticed some spots, but appeared to be clean). I also did not see any serving bowls in cupboards in kitchen. It felt just like home after the first day in Sedona! I can't wait to go back and stay here again!
