We had a great family vacation in Sedona (Montazona) 7/7/2017

We had a great family vacation in Sedona, and staying at Red Rock Retreat made the time unforgettable. The property owner, Lori, worked to ensure that we had all the information we needed before and during our stay. She responded to my emails extremely quickly, answering every question I had. The property is HUGE. We had 11 people in our group – 9 adults, 3 kids, and a toddler. The home was perfect for our family. With 5 bedrooms there was plenty of space for everyone. The home even had rollaway beds (although we didn’t need to use them) and a pack-and-play for the little guy (which was extremely helpful). The house was newly renovated- and you can definitely see that they did not skimp on the extras. The kitchen is large and open and perfect for folks who want to cook meals for a large group. The highlight of the home has to be the pool and deck area. It is just as lovely as the pictures indicate. The pool is a perfect size for a family. The deepest part is only 5 feet, so it’s great for kids. Lori even had some pool toys on hand for the little ones. The hot tub was great for the evenings when we wanted to enjoy some star gazing, which is just beautiful in Sedona. The other highlight of the home was the apartment off of the garage. As the floor plan shows in the pictures, there is an efficiency kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and en suite bath. It is a great feature and was perfect for our group as one of the families’ kids sleep in more than the others. The location is ideal. It’s a short drive to downtown Sedona and all of the sights. We enjoyed going to Slide Rock Park, taking a Pink Jeep tour, and visiting Chapel of the Cross. It was also an easy day trip to the Grand Canyon. But, having such a great home to ourselves, we spent many days swimming and taking in the breathtaking views from the pool deck. It’s hard to think of anything missing from this property. One thing that would have been helpful is a list of all of the kitchen items and amenities included in the home. For example, if we knew they had a crock pot we could use, we would have planned a different meal for dinner one night. And, the home has a lot of beach towels that you can use, so no need to pack your own. Lori did a great job thinking about what a family would need and anticipating those needs to make for a relaxing stay. In short, we loved the home and hope to stay again soon.
