Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Verde Santa Fe - Champagne Taste on Beer Budget

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 alone..in 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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Linda for opening your home for our use. We used the house as our base camp. It was lovely coming home at night to relax and recharge for the next day. I don't think we missed any activity. Your house was central to everything. Very quiet neighborhood, we were 2 couples and could not hear each other moving about the house, was fun to watch the golfers and neighbors very friendly. Beautiful, clean home with everything we needed. We spent a lot of time eating and visiting on the patio or around the fire pit.

Nearly Perfect Home Away From Home (5 STAR PROPERTY)

  • 5 of 5

First, the owner is extremely responsive and took care of any requests we had with a sense of urgency. Many nice little touches throughout the condo to help us feel at home and relaxed. Tasteful decor and really feels "homey." Beds were really comfortable and the layout of the property was perfect for our family vacation with 2 parents and 2 daughters. This was a good base camp for us. It was a 20-25 minute drive to Sedona, but we enjoyed being away from all the tourism and traffic. Plus, Cottonwood, AZ is about 5 minutes away. Safeway and other grocers are located there. 2 car garage was an added bonus which allowed us plenty of room to store our bikes. The Grand Canyon was appx 2 1/2 hours away, so that made for a long trip, however we did it all in a day! The condo was stocked with all the items you need for day-to-day. Coffee maker, dish soap, scrubbing sponge, paper towels, toilet paper, washer, dryer, etc. Back patio is stocked with propane grill, however we never got the chance to use it! We were too busy with all the activities surrounding us! Jerome is a 20 minute drive up the mountain and provides for a great scenic view of the valley down below. I have used VRBO on many occasions and this owner is probably the most attentive and detail oriented I have come across! I highly recommend this property without hesitation. The only "complaint" (and I use that term lightly because I have ZERO complaints)...is that the box tv's could be updated to flat screens. But honestly, if you are in the Sedona area you should NOT be using time to watch television! Please NOTE: There is an awesome LG Flat screen in the Master bedroom. Thank you SOOO much for letting us stay at your property. And thank you again for being so helpful on multiple occasions to ensure our stay was as comfortable as it could be!

In summary - the listing description is spot on. The property is EXTREMELY clean and well-maintained. And the owner's customer service skills rival that of a 5 star hotel!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. Upgrading the TVs would be nice, I would like to do that in the near future. But as you said not a priority to most guests. I hope you will return to your home away from home.

Like staying at a luxury reort!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 adults that stayed at Linda's gorgeous home for a week in June 2016. The home was beautifully decorated, well stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen, comfy beds, nice fluffy towels, and and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. We enjoyed sitting out in the backyard in the evenings, watching the golfers and the sunsets. The owner's photography also decorates the home and is breathtaking! We enjoyed our welcome basket, thank you, Linda! The home is in a nice central location for sightseeing. We managed to do 5 hikes in Sedona, a day trip to the Grand Canyon, another day in Flagstaff to see Wupatki/Sunset Crater Monument, as well as a hiking Red Mountain Trail (which was probably our favorite!) We drove to Prescott to see Watson Lake Granite Dells, Jerome, Montezuma Castle, Tuzigoot, and V-Bar-V.

Linda was such a pleasure to deal with. She was very professional and gave us lots of recommendations, and answered all my e-mails promptly. Her home is such a good value for the price. We hope to be able to return in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks for appreciating the attention to detail. The home is not like most VRBO rentals, this is a new home that has been very nicely decorated and stocked. I want you to think of it as your home away from home! Thanks for the recommendations, I would like to find Red Mountain Trail, it sound like fun.

Perfect Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at "Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget"! This property was big enough to accommodate two families and included everything we needed. The area is absolutely gorgeous with a spectacular view of the mountains. The neighborhood was very well maintained and felt very safe. Inside, the property had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked (pots, pans, utensils. etc) with everything needed to cook for yourself if you wanted to. Linda provided information about the area for us to use during our stay. We even turned on the fireplace one evening! We absolutely would recommend this place for anyone wanting to experience Sedona and the surrounding area.

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in this beautiful home. The views of the golf course and the mountains from the patio and back yard were unbelievable. If you are looking for a quiet vacation rental which is in a great location with Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome, Flagstaff, Williams, Phoenix and the Grand Canyon all within comfortable driving distance then this is the place for you. The owner was great to work with through VRBO and the price was very reasonable. There were no surprises and we were very pleased with Champagne Taste On A Beer Budget as our vacation rental choice. I give it 5 stars.

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.
