Dream Vacation Home Part 2

This post is for all you architecture/interior design buffs out there. If anything, I think my in-laws will love seeing this phenomenal house. I'm still pinching myself to make sure it was all real.

On this episode of Cribs, I will be showing you the main house. Everything was designed to not distract from the breath taking views. This is the main living room space and dining room. I could have stayed right here for the entire trip and been a very happy woman. The eat in kitchen area. I love the use of the glass blocks here.
After seeing this kitchen, it was determined that we were going to have to cook a few meals at home just so we could use it!
The open entry way and the awesome leopard print carpet again on the stairs. The laundry room, half bathroom, master bedroom and stairs to the bottom floor, where there were two guestrooms and a bath room, were through this hallway.
The loft/media room up stairs.
There were about 4 decks off this house and this was the main one off the living room. We spent many hours out here.
The enormous master bedroom.
I could live in this closet!
Master bathroom, and again great use of the glass blocks.
Mark was helping show case the rest of the master bedroom.
I loved this half bathroom. The walls were so cool, not sure what they were made out of though.
One of the guest bedrooms. The decor was so fun and perfect for the space. I wish I had enough design sense to figure out something like this.
The private deck off of the guest room.
The other guest room that was downstairs.
Walking up the stairs to the loft.
This was where the door was that had the catwalk to "our" guest house. :)
Have no fear, the media room that was perfect for watching the NCAA championship.
Mark & Ryan already trying it out. These Stressless chairs were so fab! The view from the loft over looking the living room.
After we all had toured the house, we decided to walk to town and check things out. That's right, the house was within walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping! Does it get any better?
There were these Javelina (the "J" is pronounced like a "H") statues everywhere. I guess that must be the cities official animal. I called them pigs but was quickly corrected that their closest ancestor was a hippo! Here's Brittney giving the Javelina some love.
I, too, gave it some sugar.
Of course, the boys had to get in on the action.
We made some friends along the way as we toured the town.
We really had to watch out for the Arizona landscape! Just about everything could scratch, poke or slice you! Ryan, of course, had to demonstrate.
Mark, Brittney and I walking back to the house to meet up with the rest of the crew that were joining us on this vacation. There were 5 others that drove in from Oklahoma.
Relaxing on the deck while waiting for our friends. We had worked up an appetite by this point. Once everyone got there, we decided to try out some of the local food. Ryan was all for trying out some high class pizza. :)
Brittney's sister, Chelsea, was part of our big group. Are they not the cutest sisters ever?? I didn't get a picture of the other four at dinner, but I assure you I have plenty pictures to come of them.
Next up, our first full day in Sedona!


  1. Wow - looks like an incredible vacation. I'll take that closet, please!

  2. Oh my gosh! I am so jealous you got to stay in that house!

  3. I love that house!! I can't wait to see more, these pics are so fun!! I wish I could have gone with you!

  4. Wow - cool house...and I love the views. It does seem like an episode of "Cribs".

  5. Awesome house but I would live a wooden shack provided it would have those views... the lanscape is beautiful.


I'd love to hear from you!
