"My husband and I have recently returned from a weeklong stay at La Bella Casita, and we’re still daydreaming about our time there. The Casita gave us the feeling that we were coming and going from “home.” It provided the level of privacy that we prefer, along with the comforts that can be found in a vacation rental home setting.
We felt the Casita was perfected located in the Village of Oak Creek (VOC). Our daily 15-20 minute drive along 89A into Sedona and beyond provided some of the most scenic landscapes we’ve ever had the pleasure of encountering. It was situated conveniently close to multiple scenic pull-offs and trail heads. There is a ranger station nearby also for those who are interested in learning about the trails in the area. The VOC had everything we needed close by – gas stations, a grocery store, a local café, a tempting bakery, a pizza shop, and more.
The Casita was clean and well maintained, both inside and out. We were so impressed by all the supplies it had to offer. We were amazed at the full range of kitchen supplies – small appliances, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cooking utensils, spices, there was even some ketchup and mustard in the refrigerator. The reverse osmosis drinking water was perhaps the most fantastic tasting water we’ve had. There were even more convenience type household items in the laundry room pantry area, including a couple of flashlights to help us navigate the walkway and gated driveway at night. I would be remiss in mentioning the supply of Q-Tips in the bathroom too! We also really appreciated that there was a travel ice chest available for our use. It was very handy to be able to pack up a meal to bring with us on days when we took longer hikes, or for our day trip to the Grand Canyon. Relaxing in the hot tub at night after the day’s busy activities quickly became just as fun as our daily outings.
The Casita is a perfect location for a couple seeking a mix of fun, active outdoor adventures, tourist type sightseeing, along with the perfect mix of relaxation & privacy. We would definitely return to continue our vacation adventures, and would highly recommend it to our family and friends. The only thing we would change is to make our stay a little bit longer, a week just wasn’t long enough to see and do all that the area has to offer! Thank you Valerie and Sue for being responsive to my email inquiries and for providing such a charming, cozy and inviting place to stay."
