About the property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4) with Mountain Views

Enjoy your days and evenings in our backyard. Early mornings catch a glimpse of the hot air balloons in the distance while you enjoy your breakfast in our little nook. Do your yoga routine out in the open air. Then wait for the golfers to appear and comment on their drives. In the evening, after some spectacular sunsets, wrap up for a cosy drink by the fire and look out to Jerome's twinkling lights in the mountains to the left and gaze at the stars in the clear nights..

Your excursions can include birdwatching, photography, hiking, cycling, whitewater rafting when you like and then book a spa treatment at one of many in the area.

Welcome to our home away from home. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Our home backs onto the 16th hole of the Verde Sante Fe Golf Course. You will also be enchanted by the views of the red rocks, Mingus mountains and the twinkling lights of Jerome from the comfort of our backyard patio with fire pit.

Our home is situated 15 min from Sedona with easy access to amenities and Highways for your excursions.

Our home is fully equipped. All you need are your clothes and personal items. The decor is modern with super comfortable beds and leather sofas.

We can offer to have the fridge and cupboards stocked before your arrival so that you maximize your vacation time and/or a cleaning service after you leave. Let us know at the time of booking.

Our Cornville golf course, located across the beautiful Verde Valley from spectacular Mingus Mountain, site of historic Jerome, is 18-holes and perfect for all levels of golfers to be pushed while having a blast. Situated 3,800 feet above the Phoenix metropolitan area, we are framed by the vast range of Black Hills that extend from Camp Verde to Cottonwood. We are where Hogan's wash and other natural arroyos come into play and where four lakes border the tenth and eighteenth holes. And to top it off, we have a pleasant average temperature of 80 degrees!

We can only use our home for one month a year and recently decided to share it with other like minded individuals.

SUSIE MATURI purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why SUSIE MATURI chose Verde Santa Fe

We didn't buy a vacation rental. This is our future retirement home. We love the area and the feeling we get from being here.

What makes this bungalow unique

We have beautiful views from any window and we are close to shopping, spas, wineries and great restaurants. We have endless entertainment in our backyard watching the golfers, wild life and the hot air balloons in the distance. We are close to highways to indulge our road trips. We can go to Vegas, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Laughlin, white water rafting, etc. Too many to mention.

Gorgeous, Comfortable Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Verde Valley - and especially enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was comfortable, warm, inviting & had so many "little" things that mean so much - including many kitchen items s.a. spices, condiments, lots of kitchen utensils, an outdoor grill, cooler(s); laundry items; lots of literature on places to explore; the list can go on and on.

We loved coming home after a fun day of exploring, hiking, jeeping and having this incredible place to stay at. I went walking every morning and never tired of the views - and was very comfortable from a safety perspective in my surroundings. It was a great way to start the day! And then sitting outside and watching the hot air balloons in the morning sky & the star-filled sky in the evening. My husband and I both felt that the location of this particular condo was the best when compared to others. We had views of the golf course, the Red Rocks, Mingus Mountain and the lights of Jerome in the evening right outside our back door. It was so very quiet and peaceful.

While there we rented a jeep thru Barlow's jeep rental & explored many trails. Our favorite was Broken Arrow. We ended up going on that trail 2x, with the 2nd time being first thing in the morning. We were the only jeepers at that time along with a handful of hikers. It was awesome! We also did some hiking - including the Devil's Bridge. Wow!! The end of that particular hike was somewhat "narly" with some steep steps and the bridge itself - but it was well worth it.

We also went on many scenic drives including Red Rock Canyon Loop, Oak Canyon, Jerome & part way to Prescott, etc. Beautiful!

Our trip out west was awesome to say the least. But what made it most enjoyable was staying at this condo. Thank you, Susie & Ed, for making this possible for us. We would return in a heartbeat!

Great location with all the amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

A great week in a beautiful area! Hiking, biking, sightseeing and then a beautiful home to return to after a busy day! The place was clean and did not lack any of the conveniences of home! Two bedrooms and two baths allowed for privacy. The neighbourhood was lovely and it was a short drive to all the trails and shops. Would return again and would recommend!!

This home was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our week here. So glad we found such a gem. So much better than a hotel stay. Will definitely rent again.

Great choice over a motel room!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well worth the money even though it is a little out of Sedona, especially since there are two private bedrooms and baths. The kitchen has everything you need, and has a wonderful bbq right outside. The Wifi worked perfectly and t.v. has lots of options. I had friends who stayed in Sedona and we met each day and did a jeep tour, went to Jerome, golfed twice, and went up to the Grand Canyon for one long day. And I still found the time and energy to go to the casino in Camp Verde which is only about a half hour away. Lots to do in the area, and this home made a comfortable, enjoyable home base!
