About the property

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.

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.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The property description is accurate, which is always comforting when using a vacation home. I was immediately impressed by the cleanliness....very important to me! Linda is delightful and easy to work with. The home has lots of charm with the owner's personal photographic art and the decor is relaxing. We had every aminity we needed, including a helpful collection of sightseeing and hiking guides/information. From this location, a day trip to the Grand Canyon and Flagstaff is easy. Sedona offers a perfect backdrop with scenery, food, and shopping while Jerome is an interesting, eclectic town with a fascinating history......both are literally "around the corner". I highly recommend this relaxing home and attentive owner.

Owner's Response: I enjoy helping the guest with activity recommendations. Summer is a dramatic, picturesque time to visit with dramatic clouds, brief rains and beautiful rainbows. I take a lot of pride in the home and want you to feel at peace when your there and able to rest.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is extremely well kept, both inside and outside, and very comfortable. It's in a gated community, so it's very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped, making it easy to have meals at home and to prepare a lunch box. The location is perfect. It's nice and quite, but it takes less than 10 mins to get to Cottonwood, and about 20 to get to Sedona (driving to Sedona from the west, traffic was always fairly light and never a problem). The Grand Canyon is about 2.5 hrs away.

Linda is a great host, very responsive, and a source of useful tips and recommendations. She has also left several guides and maps in the house to plan outdoors activities. There are too many things to see in one trip, so we'll definitely have to go back to the area, and we now know where to stay...

Owner's Response: Thank you, we take a lot of pride in the cleanse and organization of the home. I agree, there is too many things to do on one trip, we encourage you to come back with our return visit discount program. This location is the quickest way in to Sedona without the tourism traffic, no lights and beautiful views. Caution Sedona is addictive.

Best yet!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we could have asked for in a vacation home. It was VERY clean and well maintained. After staying in several vacation homes, I can say that this one had EVERYTHING we needed, including coffee filters. The layout was unique and worked great. From this location, we could get around to see all the attractions in the area. The restaurant recommendations were spot on.

Clean, Beautifully Decorated, Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property, and I have to say that it is our favorite VRBO. Linda is extremely helpful and her property is clean, beautifully decorated with her gorgeous photography. The open concept provides a nice area for enjoying each other's company. The kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed hiking, atving, shopping, and visiting our friends that live in Cornville. We loved it so much, I am confident that we will return.

The Name says it all!

  • 5 of 5

It was a real treat to be able to visit Sedona and all the attractions and at the end on a busy day come back to the peaceful, secure and totally comfortable surroundings offered by staying at "Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget". The owner has outfitted the house with everything you need - leaving notes to explain things before you have a chance to ask. There are maps and menus and areas of interest left for visitors, a well stocked kitchen and a quiet patio. Honestly I challenge you to find a nicer vacation home at a better price.
