Other things to note
Private, quiet, secluded, yet next to 300 miles of trails for hiking, biking, and riding. Sunshine all year around! Amazing views, yet minutes from town. Backyard access trails, hiking, biking, and nearby creek access. Perfect for weekend trips to the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Zion National Park, and Brian Head, UT. Sedona weather is amazing all year-round. July & August can be very hot, but the monsoons can bring unbelievable cooling afternoon thunderstorms and beautiful skies. Plan to hike early mornings, siesta
Peaceful, quiet, relaxing. An outdoor community, hiking & biking are encouraged. A dark sky policy for star gazing. Turn OFF A/C when away from the Casita. Keep windows/door closed when A/C is ON. Because most of Sedona is on a fragile septic, please put as much tissue in the trash can. There is a couple ponds in the backyard that are not fenced. Please be cautious with toddlers.
