About Crystal Cooper Owner/Manager

Brian And Crystal Cooper have grown up in the Verde Valley and still reside there they have six children including three boys and three girls. Currently their time is spent homeschooling their children and operating a small cleaning business that services all of Northern Arizona. They love the outdoors and enjoy the plethora of trails and outdoor opportunities that are provided in this area. They are thankful to have their family near them and get together frequently. Crystal's Sister Candy owns a small antique store that you will see on your way in named Candy's Creekside Cottage. It is full of AZ collectables and interesting trinkets. She has great prices too so feel free to stop by for an original Arizona souvenir.

Why Crystal Cooper Owner/Manager chose Arizona

This property was custom built in 1998 by Crystals Father. It was intended to be her parents house until plans changed for them half way through the building process. The house was to become a spec house but Crystal decided that she was in love with it and convinced her father to let her buy it and help him finish it. Each stone in the flagstone floor was handpicked and placed by Crystal and her father. Being an Arizona resident and custom home builder for many years each home was built with a reminder of our great state. Sometimes it was an stain-glass window of the AZ Flag or a custom piece of flagstone shaped like the state of Arizona. This house has the signature AZ flagstone and an added twist. Crystal has had a great love for angels forever and decided to put one in the entry way as her own signature. When the Custom patio was later built by Crystal and her husband she later put one there as well additionally you will find dancing lizards the strength bear a saguaro cactus with a bird perched on its arm and other custom features throughout the house. It has custom doors that were built using native yucca collected near by. Many of the materials used to create this custom home were collected nearby as it was the owners desire to have it be a completely original and unique home. This home still holds the heart of Crystal and her husband Brian who plan to retire there some day. For now it is available to you because it is simply to small for their family of 8. Please enjoy it!!

Nice quiet interesting and funky house a little too far from Sedona but worked well for us.

  • 3 of 5

We liked the adobe feel and the decorations were fun. The big screen TV and bunches of movies were a definite plus. We were surprised how far from the red rocks of Sedona it was and missed having a nice little coffee shop and stores near by but it worked well for us. The owner was difficult to communicate with. she rarely answered emails and phone contact was spotty. There are several maintenance things that need to be addressed like the plugs in the master bath didn't work. The master bed was very comfortable but the other 2 rooms had uncomfortable beds that squeaked. One thing that would really help would be written instructions on the home and on suggestions for site seeing, trails, and restaurants. There were a bunch of brochures in a bowl but no personal recommendations.

Returned for Our Second Visit

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying at Casa Cochise with friends. We came to Sedona for a hiking holiday, so after a long day on the dusty trails, it was wonderful to come back to the peaceful, homey surroundings of Casa Cochise and the convenient washer and dryer. Even though there were just the four of us, the open concept design offers both spacious living and dining areas for much larger groups. The kitchen was well equipped for all of our meal preps and it was nice to be able to sit and socialize around the extended counter.

We enjoyed relaxing in the large backyard which was furnished for different sun/shade sitting and dining areas. The location of Casa Cochise made easy traveling to hiking, local attractions and especially to "Robbie's Family Restaurant", down the road, for some great food! Once again, we had a great stay.

Beutifully constructed home in southern style

  • 4 of 5

We ended up at this house on very short notice to the owner. They got it ready for us in one day and we stayed for a total of 40 nights. Nice yard with the many collectables around the property. Really liked the log beams inside with the stone and tiled floors. It was on the cold side so we watched a lot of the movies in their collection of well over 100 titles. My wife says the beds were marvelous.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 days while attending a wedding in Sedona. Our group of 3 adults and 3 children really enjoyed the property. The area around was quiet and the backyard was very big. There was plenty of room in the house for all of us and it suited our family well. The kids enjoyed the old southwest theme of the property too. It might not be for everyone, but it worked great for us. Crystal was very helpful in answering any questions that we had.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We come to see relatives in Camp Verde and like a little privacy instead of sleeping on floors in their house. This house was relatively close to our family's place and we got to each have our own space. This house was great for what we wanted. They even let us bring our dogs! The heater did go out but the owners father came on Thanksgiving day to turn on the wood stove and a technician was called and the heater was fixed before we made it back to the house that night. They were very helpful even on the holiday. I am very late in posting this review but still wanted to do it. We stayed there in November of 2013.
