Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is situated on a hill and somewhat private. There are other houses in the immediate area but you get the sense of privacy while there. The house itself was lovely. The owner is a metal artist and his work is displayed both inside and outside. The only thing you would need to bring if staying there is food. The kitchen has every appliance and cooking essential and is stocked with paper goods as well.

We met the owner, John, at the mini mart in town and followed him to the house where he gave us the tour. I see where others commented about the road. There is a long “primitive” road to get to the house. It is, by all means, drivable. It is not what you would be accustomed to if you live in the city but it should not deter you from staying here.

We took advantage of the National parks in the area and made the short drive to Sedona as well. I will certainly recommend this house to family and friends who are looking for a quiet getaway.

Great location, unique home

  • 5 of 5

What a fun house to visit! Lots of fantastic metal art, many colors, but also all the practical items that make a week-long stay work well, including plenty of dishes, kitchen items, and towels. The convenient location is right in the middle of all the interesting places to see.

Comfortable House and Good Location for a Southwest Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the Lake Montezuma vacation home. It was confortable and artfully furnished. Our local host was gracious and accomodating.

Some things to note:

1. the road in to the house is rough and rocky in spots. Not a problem for most vehicles under normal conditions. If you have a low clearance vehicle or if the weather is bad it may be more difficult to traverse.

2. There is no dishwasher. Not a real problem but just something to keep in mind.

3. There is a $25/night guest fee for each guest over 4. We had 6 guests so that added $50/night to our cost. We did not know of this at the time of booking nor did the initial booking include this cost.

Our suggestion is to clarify better up front the extra guest fee for over 4 guests. It was a total suprise to me as the Home Away phone app did not provide this information nor did it calculate the extra $50/night cost when I booked the property. I was contacted by the property owner/manager of this extra cost a few days after booking. It would have been good to know before I booked the reservation.

We suggest that Home Away work with the property owner to make sure that all costs are displayed and included during the initial booking. This includes making sure the phone app gives all relevant information and includes all relevant costs at time of booking.
