About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Imagine yourself pulling into a gated community, Peace and security as you enter. Pull into the garage on the 18th hole of the Verde Santé Fe Golf course. Enjoy the quiet neighborhood with dark star filled skies, a small home town feel and the opportunity of being so close to one of the most beautiful places in America, Sedona! Red Rock County. Ahhh..Away at last!

Travel north only 12 miles to Sedona, Enjoy the great red rocks views, hiking, scenic drives, tours, horseback rides, hot air balloons, spas, galleries, shopping and dining.....Spend a great day with your family at Slide Rock Park or visit the natural land vortex’s such as Cathedral Rock and Bell Rock for healing energy and mental clarity. My favorite hike is Devils Bridge, a moderate 35 minute hike to the top of this natural land arch, walk out on the arch or enjoy it from a distance…either way you will leave here with some great pictures, a sense of accomplishment, and inspiration.

Or travel 12 miles south to Jerome, an old copper mining town, artist community with an interesting reputation of being a ghost town...if you want unique local art instead of mass-produced 'Indian Art & Jewelry,' which, unfortunately, has begun to be plentiful in the shops of Sedona. Great location for photography, shopping, wine tasting, galleries and dining.

This new home is open and light with great energy and blazing fast internet. Enjoy the sounds of the tranquil water fountain or relax in the round chair with a cup of morning coffee or cuddled up with a special someone. Enjoy the temperature being 10 degrees cooler here than in Scottsdale. You open the door and you know that you are 'home'. Leather sofas, down comforters, tribal rugs on the floor. In the winter the gas fireplace is capable of making the family room nice and toasty. Enjoy some family time with a movie. In the summer enjoy coming back from a long day of hiking to a super cool air conditioned home or enjoy soaking in the guest bathroom tub.

The sliding glass door leads to an open space patio surrounded by plants, flowers and a variety of bird life. To one side is the green grass of the golf course, the other side is open space with beautiful views of the Mingus Mountain. Spend an evening talking with friends or make new friends as you visit with the golfers on the 18th hole.. I often love to sit out there the evening enjoying the fire pit with a glass of wine and my own thoughts..

The tiled kitchen is open to the family room with bar counter and stools for entertaining your guests...everything about this place, from the Sedona Landscape images to the Quiver with the bow and arrows makes you feel like you are in Sedona.

The master bedroom is spacious and inviting…romantic

mood lighting with a medium-firm mattress, nice and cool high thread count sheets and Flat screen smart TV. A full bathroom with a stall shower. Just drop your bags and head off for the red rocks.

The guest bedroom has s a medium firm queen mattress, high thread cool sheets and down pillows. Complete with a 19' TV and walk in closet. Decorated in a series of photographic images by the owner of the natural land arches in Sedona.

Next to the water fountain is the third bedroom, The Indiana Jones Room, no TV in here, perfect for a single guest who loves to read or just loves some peace and quiet from the rest of the family. This room offers a very comfortable firm twin futon mattress, a full closet and wood writing desk inviting you to document your vacation experiences in your journal...or perhaps complete that writing project you started last year!

This is high desert living at its finest and it won't break the bank. Come stay in my home, I would love to have you.

What a wonderful stay we had at Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget. The house was better than expected. Well appointed with everything you could want or need. The beds were so comfortable. we slept great. The location ideal for wine tours, quick trip to Sedona and Jerome, Cottonwood areas. The house is located on the 18th hole of a public golf course. We spend the afternoon on the porch watching golfers finish up their game. In the morning there were bunnies in the yard as well as hummingbirds. This is a "gem" of a home. We will be back!

Our two weeks in this beautiful home were absolutely marvelous. We fell in love with the wonders of Arizona and found this home so beautifully situated for exploring all parts of the area and a welcome retreat at day's end with the warmth of the fireplace and cozy couches to curl up on. Highly recommend and will definitely return!!! Some places (but not all) that are within a day's drive are: Grand Canyon, Montezuma's Well and Castle, V-V Ranch, Upper and lower Sedona with brunch at l'Auberge de Sedona, Cottonwood, Cornville,etc.,etc. The two men in our group enjoyed three days of golf and were quite delighted with the course. The wives enjoyed being on the 18th hole and watching the golfers pass on by. This area is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails for all. It was truly a great vacation!!!!!

Owner's Response: I agree, the backyard can be peaceful with the open space, the view of the mountains, golf course, firepit and the birds singing. Its also fun to watch and/or flirt with the golfers. The weather's beautiful in the spring and the fall for backyard relaxing. Yes lots of delicious dining in the nearby towns of Cornville, Cottonwood and Jerome. The town of Sedona is only 20 miles long but has 5 different areas. Im glad you were able to see them all, Uptown Sedona, West Sedona, the I79 Corridor, the Village of Oak Creek and Beautiful Oak Creek Canyon heading from Sedona AZ to Flagstaff, thats one of the top seven Scenic Drive in the US.

This home and the location is absolutely beautiful, simply perfect. We stayed the week before Christmas and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful home to stay in. The location is great and only about 20 mins to Sedona. You can watch the beautiful sunrise each morning which overlooks the golf courses18th hole. The home is decorated immaculately, absolutely top notch. Working with Linda was a true pleasure. Her gorgeous photography-pictures of places in Arizonia which are displayed throughout the home is simply breathtaking. You will love everything about this home and it's location. Can't wait to go back!

If you would like to stay close to home there are many wonderful experiences to be had in this area of the Verde Valley. There are several local wineries on Page Springs Road (about 5-10 minutes away), and don't forget the Fish Hatchery on that road, as well. In nearby Camp Verde are Montezuma's Well, Montezuma's Castle, and a little farther out, Tuzigoot, Honanki and Palatki, ruins. Also near the house is the Out of Africa Wildlife adventure area. For some night life, Cliff Castle Resort & Casino in Camp Verde (about 10 min. away) has some great restaurants, a bowling alley, and, of course, lots of 'one armed bandits,' if you want to try your luck!

Nearby Old Town Cottonwood is also a great place for an afternoon stroll. Plays and performances are offered in the Theatre there, and the La Bella Restaurant offers wonderful natural fare. The Clarkdale Train offers a sweet ride through the local mountains, with the guide pointing out both historical and natural points of interest...a real treat for train kids!

I can help you tailor your experiences to your interests and budgets...just ask! If I don't know the answer to your question, I will be happy to try and get one for you.

This is high desert living at its finest and it won't break the bank. Come stay in my home, I would love to have you.
