Inviting, Cozy, Romantic Patio Home Ideal For One, Two Or Six-Month Stay
About Russ Christ
We have lived in the Phoenix area for about 20 years, and were married at the Enchantment Resort in Sedona 17 years ago. Over two decades we've learned that Sedona, and its spectacular sunsets, scenery and weather, never gets old. The condo, Casa de Bella, is named after Bella, our seven-year-old English Cream Golden Retriever. It has been a blessing. We've used it to escape the Phoenix heat in the summer, see some snow in the winter and, in general, as a place to relax and unwind away from the big city. For our family Sedona has been about hikes, swimming in the pool, and taking Bella to splash around in Oak Creek. It's also been a quiet retreat to read books, stow away the electronics and just talk. In the Spring and Fall, when the weather is spectacular, we've traveled there and taken advantage of hundreds of wonderful local hikes (Airport Loop, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Boynton Canyon, Oak Creek etc. etc. etc.). Our two teenage boys have played various sports in nearby Sunset Park, which is within walking distance. But perhaps more than anything, they have learned to love and appreciate nature at places like West Fork Trail, one of the best hikes in the Western U.S. Great food, of course, has made our visits memorable. Family meals at home and visits to local eateries like The Elote Cafe, Coffee Pot Restaurant and many others have added to the experiences. Let us know how we can make your stay in Sedona more enjoyable!

Why Russ Christ chose West Sedona
Our hope is to share the condo with as many people as possible and make some new friends along the way. It's already happened with appreciative visitors traveling from South America, Texas, Boston, Canada, Russia and San Diego. We're certain our future guests, like us, will have some great experiences, make lasting memories and return again and again.
