She has great prices too so feel free to stop by for an original Arizona souvenir.
Why Crystal Cooper Owner/Manager chose Lake Montezuma
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!!

Loved the property and the location
My family has stayed at over a dozen different properties using VRBO. This is the first time we came back to a property. The back yard is great for the kids to play in. The location is great. Near so many things to do. The owner was always available if we needed to speak and got back within minutes. We really do like to stay at new places but we had such a great time---we maybe back for a 3rd stay.
Thanks again for everything
Cozy and Trainquil
A group of us stayed here for my boyfriend's 30th birthday celebration. It was definitely comfortable for 7 of us--3 couples and one single. It is a bit of a trek to restaurants so I would recommend bringing your own food and taking advantage of their awesome grill and patio in the backyard. The house is close to lot of great hiking and desert swimming holes. We also spent an afternoon at a nearby vineyard. Only issue were ants in the kitchen when we had food out even though the house was kept clean. This seems to be a common problem in Arizona though. Would come back for sure!
True to the description. Lots of character; comes with a slightly run down feel.
Owner Crystal was incredibly helpful and kind. Unfortunately the space wasn’t as clean or simple as we prefer. There was too much clutter and disorganization with ants all over the bathroom and kitchen areas. We did enjoy the backyard space, the comfortable master bed and the local trail system just a few blocks down the road.
We strive for five star reviews and are sorry to hear you experienced an ant problem! This is the first report I’ve had this year. It has been extra warm lately and the ants were no doubt sugar ants looking for food. I will be sure to have it treated!
Not sure what your referencing in regards to clutter. But we do provide a lot of options both in the kitchen and entertainment wise. There are many movies and games available for our guests; we try to provide something for everyone, but will evaluate how we can make it more “simple”.
Unique stay in Unique area
Well positioned home well North of Phoenix but OUT of the Sedona traffic ! Two nearby attractions to Montezuma Well & Montezuma Castle. House is well furnished with big backyard. Much better suited to sleep 6 than the stated 8 persons. House is good value for what you get from it. Nice Adobe style home with unique SW character. We enjoyed it and didn't mind the short drive to nearby attractions.
Had a wonderful weekend with friends in this quiet desert respite.
Very cozy and peaceful home
Very peaceful home. Loved the space inside and in the back yard. My youngest loved the basketball court. Will definitely come back next time we are in the area.
