"The property was the most beautiful and well equipped Vrbo I have ever visited. There are three separate areas for guests so all had privacy. The common area was large and comfy and accommodated 8 guests easily. We enjoyed the outdoor spaces as much as the indoor. The fire pit and outdoor seating were very comfortable. The owners were just the best. A text message and they replied quickly and took care of whatever we needed. They were lovely folks❤️ It was the best get away ever!"

We stayed here as our home base for exploring Sedona, but now we want to come back just because. Glen and Kristen have nailed what vacation rentals are all about. The whole check in process is seamless and they are easily available for any questions. The room is like your own 5 star suite. WiFi, DirecTV, Netflix, air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, robes and a huge king bed. Directly outside your suite is a large pool, fire pit, BBQ and a foosball table. The property is right down the way from grocery stores, gas stations, etc. and about a 10 minute drive to Old Town Cottonwood which has some fun restaurants. A 30 minute drive will get you to Sedona and the wide variety of hikes and outdoor activities available. Can't recommend this place enough whether you want to explore Sedona or just want a couple nights away from the rat race. Here are some places to check out while you're here: RIOT (Cottonwood) for their extensive craft beer list and a large, fun patio. Don't miss the Mac and cheese. Muse (Cottonwood) for Cajun style cuisine. Don't miss the shrimp and grits. Crema Craft Kitchen (Cottonwood) for the ridiculously good berry and mascarpon crepes. Wildflower Bread Company (Sedona): Like Panera but much better and less tourist-trappy as some of the other restaurants in downtown Sedona. Buck Thornton's World of Jerky (Sedona): Hot venison jerky is the way to go, free samples also available.

Perfect place for a fun getaway!

My friends and I had such a great "girls" weekend during our stay here. This is a fabulous property. It didn't really feel like just a house rental. More like a very clean, perfectly laid out, large guest house - that is intended for the kind of guests you want to impress. Like bringing out the good silver for a nice dinner. It is BIG! And it is CLEAN! It is set up for guests to feel welcomed, spoiled, and very comfortable. The small details did not go unnoticed. The decor was fabulous. Sheets and towels lush. Every amenity was thought through. Each corner of the house and property are ready for guests to relax. You don't need to think about anything. Everything is set up and ready for you. The owners were helpful giving us information and ideas about the area. They are genuinely nice and want to make sure you're enjoying your stay. It is obvious they care and took a lot of care creating a wonderful space. It is only a short walk to town. We WILL come back! This is a perfect example of how VRBOs should be done! Thank you!
