Dramatic home next to the historic Rimrock Ranch that was once owned by Mob Boss Sam Giancana and where Hollywood Director Victor Flemming escaped to. This is a comfy villa filled with patina from a bygone era. Walking distance to the Montezuma Well National Monument. Starry Nights and plenty of wildlife & livestock abound. It is now available for only one weekend or three weeknights per month due to the host's health issues.
CHECK IN: between Noon and Midnight. On Wednesdays & Sundays it must be after 5pm! SATURDAY check ins are EVENING only. All smoking must be on the front patio or the veranda out back. There is no smoking in the house. No cats are allowed because the host has a bad allergy. The house is not safe for children. All three beds in the two guest rooms are TWIN BEDS. There is much freedom as long as you respect the serene area of the location and the "chill" vibe of the home. Let me know if you're going to stay out late, so that I may lend you a key and not be woken up at 3am. Don't forget that a flock of chickens also live here and my neighbors own livestock (cattle & horses) so there are the normal farm animal sounds. I must emphasize that this is a RANCH area. That means DIRT ROADS and LIVESTOCK scent . I can not change these conditions. Please don't book with me only to complain about any of the above after you check out. If you want cows and wildlife you also must make some sacrifices.
I am completely out of my mind, but I make one heck of a host! I truly love to share my home with inquisitive people from around the world. With an ethnic background of Basque, Mexican, & White Mountain Apache, I can say without any reservation that I am 100% Southwestern. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of both the history as well as the geography of the area. I am a former professional entertainer/producer, and have a fantastic collection of vinyl records in my Juke Box for my guest's to enjoy. From Sun Label to Motown I've got them. I also spent some time in my youth working for the Government and am also very proud of my Parents' service. I used to travel on a regular basis to both Cabo San Lucas and Hawaii. I have also had three memorable trips to Paris and one to Prague. Next on my "Wish List" is the Isle of Patmos. Today I love to care for my plants and animals and spend extra time on my manuscript. My home's interior is an admix of an Old Spanish Chapel, some Tex-Mex flavor, a Cavalry/Cowboy bunk house, and of course the Native American Kiva. If you're looking for something off the beaten path and just 1/2 hour from "uptown" Sedona, this is the place.
