Private, spacious, light and immaculate are but a few words to describe this beautiful Sedona home sitting on 1/2 acre of wooded property. Among the highlights: vaulted ceilings; large windows span the entire front of the house, inviting the outside in; custom-made glass panels allow natural light to filter in as well; a large lanai with access from both the kitchen & living room, w/an adjacent small pond & fountain, encourage you to sit outside with your morning coffee and soak in the 'feel' of Sedona; during the winter months, stoke up a fire in the wood-burning stove, curl up on large comfortable couches & enjoy the flickering flames. Spring, fall & summer are the perfect times to sit outside on the back porch, fire up the bbq or firepit & enjoy the extraordinary experience of watching the sunset over Cathedral Rock in the distance; at day's end, descend a spiral staircase to the family room which features a video & book library & games. For homebodies there is a large TV. Enjoy the newly remodeled kitchen w/granite countertops and stainless steel appliances; the kitchen is equipped with all the amenities needed to cook a family feast or a romantic dinner for two.
The 1 Bedroom Guest Cottage includes a full bathroom, kitchen w/full stove & refrigerator and magnificent views of Red Rocks from 2 oversized picture windows. A/C, TV, CD player, WiFi.
Tranquil , Restful & Serene: I love the privacy of the location, the open, airy layout of the house and most importantly, the large windows which afford me a 220 degree view of the Red Rocks, State Forest land, and abundant wildlife. I can sit on my back porch as the sun sets, sipping a glass of wine, listening to the soothing sounds from the small pond in the front yard, the cascading of water over the rocks in Oak Creek, or the swishing of the large Willow tree in the back yard. As night falls I fire up the BBQ, put some logs in the backyard firepit, bundle up a bit and eat dinner outside on the porch, listening to those same sounds and I gaze at a sky so star-filled, that it takes your breath away. In the morning around 6 am, hot cup of coffee in hand, I'm outside again, this time watching a wide array of birds, hummingbirds, cranes, butterflies, etc. start their day.
Shop & Sightsee: The house is close to the hustle & bustle of uptown Sedona and I never tire of wandering through the myriad of art galleries, museums, & eclectic shops the town has to offer. Exploring the shops in Tlaquepaque or sitting & listening/watching local performers entertain throughout the courtyard areas, will keep you busy for hours. During the warmer weather - generally through Thanksgiving, dozens of craftsmen & artists, supported by the Sedona Arts community, display & sell their work in West Sedona venues.
Hike, Bike, Climb, Balloon, Ride, or Slide: You will never run out of trails to hike & bike, or mountains to climb. This is a wonderland for the adventurous of spirit and body. Take a balloon ride over the majestic Red Rocks or a teeth-rattling Jeep Tour weaving up, over & through the Rocks, for horseback riding, you'll not find a more magnificent experience.
If you are bringing kids or teens along, a day spent at Slide Rock is a must! Slip and slide down the rocks and into the cold rushing waters of famous Oak Creek. Bring along a picnic for a perfect family outing.
What a nice vacation home! When we arrived in November it was pretty cold outside. We were happy to find a stove and firewood to create a cozy and warm atmosphere in this house. My 4 year old loved it, it was here favorite rental home of four we stayed in on that trip. Maybe because of the athmosphere from the burning stove while playing her favourite navajo songs from the houses cd selection :) The home was well maintained and crisp clean. Nice granite countertops in the kitchen and comfy beds. It is located next to the center of sedona, but well hidden in a cul de sac. So you can enjoy all the sedona amenities "per pedes". Linda is easy to work with and always available if you have any kind of question. We will definitely stay here again when we will return to sedona. Thank you Linda for the James P. "Songs of the Navajo" cd, it is still playing in germany :)
Fantastic vacation home! Easily the best vacation property we have ever had the pleasure of renting! We are a family of 6 and traveled with 2 friends. House comfortably accommodated our entire party of 8, with room to spare. Property is superbly clean...I am an admitted germaphobe and travel with lysol wipes, no need to use them in this house! Everything is beautiful and clean beyond expectations. A favorite spot to gather was the roomy front porch with the fountain. Kitchen is well stocked with the essentials for cooking and BBQ. Plenty of towels and linens. Traveling with 3 little ones, the washing machine and dryer got quite a workout and was much appreciated. Thank you for the providing the perfect vacation home to make our memories in. Wonderful time!!
We had a large group staying for a month of mountain biking. We had no problem parking 3 vehicles in front of the main house, and 2 in the carport by the guest house. What I liked best about the place was the seclusion, the fact that it stayed cool, even without air conditioning, the view from the living area, the well stocked kitchen, the close proximity to Oak Creek, the fact that they accepted dogs on request. I also found the property manager very prompt and easy to deal with. We plan on returning to Sedona annually, and I think we have found the place to rent over and over again.
This lovely house exceeded all our expectations. Everything was easy. The fully equipped kitchen made it easy to eat and snack at home. The location made it easy to come and go to town and country. The spaciousness made it easy for all eight of us to relax. Linda made it easy to arrange everything. The setting and view made it easy to remember you were in Sedona. Thanks!
We visited this lovely house in February 2013. Working with Linda was super easy and everything in the house was exactly as described. The master bedroom was a nice size with a very comfortable. The living area of the house had a nice open layout with views of the rocks to the north of town. We appreciated that the cabinets were well stocked with basic food items. Our kids loved the DVDs and games available and my in-laws enjoyed relaxing on the patio soaking in the sun and enjoying the views. Access to town was a quick 3 minute drive away. Well definitely stay again if in the area.
Our extended family stayed in this amazing home for a month and could not be more pleased with our choice. We rented both the main house & guest cottage and both were ideal for our needs. They were exactly as advertised and then some; the pictures certainly don’t do this home justice. The views were breathtaking, especially from the back porch of the main house. The accommodations were immaculate, spacious, comfortable and well equipped with plenty of kitchen amenities, above average linens & towels and little thoughtful extras that made our stay even more enjoyable. There were cds for the stereo, dvds for the multiple tvs, and books and games for the adults and children.
The wood-burning fireplace was so cozy & inviting that many evenings the entire family plopped down in front of it with books, games, or just to chat. And oh my, the evening skies…. a heavenly blanket of stars beyond description. The electric fireplace heater in the master bedroom was a lovely touch of ambiance.
As other traveler’s reviews mentioned, the owner could not have been more pleasant or accommodating. In addition to plenty of available literature in the house on hiking, galleries, etc., she offered suggestions as to local attractions, dining recommendations, & daily get-aways.
This is our 6th year taking an annual family vacation and the unanimous decision is that this was the best house by far – perfect in every way. If we decide to converge on Sedona in the future, we will definitely stay here.
Sedona is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The grandeur of the Red Rocks encircle the town and serve as the inspiration for some of the most dynamic & unique art imaginable. For those who enjoy shopping or just browsing, experience the myriad art galleries, museums, eclectic shops & restaurants in the heart of Uptown Sedona, a mere 1/4 away, or wander through town to Tlaquepaque, where the cobblestone walkways, fountains, & trappings create an atmosphere of an age gone by . More adventurous?... head up Oak Creek Canyon to Slide Rock, West Fork, or to the numerous hiking trails along the breath-taking drive through the Canyon; stop at some of the Native American craft stands along the way - this is a drive you don't want to miss!
