Heaven on Earth 5 of 5 PatriciaLynne Jul 27, 2013 The Dragonfly Sanctuary in Sedona, AZ Welcomes You
"Heaven on Earth"
The beautiful Dragonfly Sanctuary in spectacular Sedona, Arizona is far more than a vacation rental. It should have its own category as it is an experience that has the potential to move you to tears with its beauty and soothe your soul with its peaceful nature. The house lives up to its sanctuary title with its serene decor and access to both the majestic red rock views and a lovely garden area from nearly everywhere you look. I have made friends with the very noisy little frogs that live in the pond and make quite a racket once the sun goes down and even made a little videotape of their dubious singing so that I can listen to it when I am homesick for this place, which is inevitable when I leave in a few days. But the real magic is straight up 82 red rock steps to what I call "the sky". There lies your own personal heaven with a full 360 degree view of what has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. The sunsets are unparalleled and the stargazing mesmerizing. There is a private gate that leads directly to the National Forest where you can hike to your heart's content, which I have done many times. It is close to town but far from the noisy hustle and bustle and also within easy walking distance of the Elote Cafe which in my opinion is the best in town. The owner is responsive, caring and completely dedicated to insuring that you not only enjoy your stay but have the kind of powerful experience that this place is capable of providing. It seems like a calling to her and those lucky enough to stay here are the beneficiaries. Book in advance because this place is busy and for good reason. I have loved every moment and shall never forget a single one.
Having seen past reviews and Jan's great pictures, we still weren't fully prepared for the beauty of this place. It truly is a sanctuary - with beauty and artistic touches inside and out, a feeling of calm settled over us as we explored all the nooks and crannies of the multiple patios and gardens as well as the view that was nothing short of spectacular. We'd never been to Arizona, let alone, Sedona so it was just luck or fate that made us choose this place. The location was perfect, private yet close to what soon became our favorite part of Sedona. Many really great restaurants in close proximity and so easy to navigate to day trips in Jerome, Cottonwood and Old Town Historic Cottonwood, Camp Verde, village of Oak Creek and Oak Creek Canyon. Jan supplied yoga mats, I brought my own blocks and was able to do yoga in the master bedroom loft, full of windows with views of the red rocks at every turn. Every convenience was provided. There was a note regarding the garden tub in the master bath that stated they'd disconnected the jets for health concerns but that was fine as it was still lovely to soak in and relax each day, plus the hot tub was heavenly and provided views of the moon and stars when used in the evening. We saw wildlife in the valley below and even one morning, after a thunderstorm, a rainbow appeared in the valley - below us - so we were literally "over the rainbow". We stayed through 10/3 and felt so at home here. Sedona is such a beautiful gem of a place and this home is a gift. Jan was great on communication at every turn. Thank you and we hope to return.
Dragonfly is a precious jewel, and Jan's open-hearted sharing of this sacred place is a gift she shares with those of us fortunate enough to be called into Dragonfly's loving embrace during our time in Sedona.
This rental offering is so far beyond the usual.....
If you feel drawn here, know you can trust that.
My two month stay has worked it's magic, leading me to return in 2015 for three months.
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to steep myself in Dragonfly's nurturing energy and I am so very grateful for Jan's warm welcome.
Thank You Jan !
It is no surprise this place was selected for Sweet Retreats. The views are second to none. The Zen gardens are thriving and beautiful. Sitting on the back patio next to the waterfall in the backyard was heavenly, and the service and personal attention given to us made sure we had a great time. Our stay was so much more than expected. An incredible energy is present on this property and it is very private, noise free and very romantic. Even though it is high on a hill it is still very close to everything, Wish I could live her year round. Also, for anyone who wants a pool, there is a beautiful year round heated salt water pool that is within walking distance and it is very inexpensive for a grounds pass daily, weekly or monthly. Hands down, the best Vacation Rental Home in Sedona. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. We will be back for sure next year. Thank you Jan and Devora for a wonderful stay.
This Sanctuary was better than described. Great energy spots. I consider this place sacred. Extremely serene, exclusively private, Great layout, amenities as described, clean spotless and Beautifully maintained and Designed, state of the art rooms, Fully Equipped Eat-in Kitchen with Gas Appliances. efficient service/response if you have questions. divine meditation access spaces outside, well lit at night for star and sunset gazing. when you climb up to the top of the designed private yard, the views are beyond words and the greatest asset of all Devara, the manager. wish i could give this place 10 stars
We had a lovely time! If you enjoy a hike right outside your backyard, or a hilltop to star gaze from, or a place to walk to dinner at a few top notch eateries from, then this is your spot! Very warm and accommodating!
This home is truly unique. The home is light-filled and very comfortable. The land on which it sits is magnificent. There are views in every direction - from the home and from the rear patio. The views from the upper patio are stunning. We spent many sunsets at the top of those stairs.
The website photos are accurate, but really don't fully illustrate the beauty of this home.
The Marg's Draw trail runs right behind the house, and Sedona's scores of other wonderful hiking trails are a short drive. The location of this house cannot be beat - private and quiet, but minutes from Tlaquepaque, Uptown Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon and West Sedona.
Our stay was both relaxing and invigorating. And I must say that Jan and John are outstanding hosts. They were easily accessible and tirelessly helpful.
We've stayed in many VRBO-type accommodations, and the Dragonfly Sanctuary is near the top of our list. We can't wait to return.
Thanks, Jan and John!
The Dragonfly Sanctuary is located in the exclusive Gallery/Creek District. Sitting high on the hill, away from the noise, we overlook Uptown and Hillside Sedona. Although very private, with beautiful views, we are within walking distance of Tlaquepaque and main attractions. We have an exclusive private entry to the Munds Wildreness and Trails directly from our property.
Other Activities: Shopping, Rock Climbing, Fitness Center/Gym, Health/Beauty Spa, Basketball Court, Miniature golf, Hot Air Ballooning
