About owner Rebecca
About the owner: Hi, I am Rebecca and my husbands name is Jeff. We have been married for a long long long time! We met in and married and have 2 great kids. Both in college! We need to pay for all this! We decided the perfect way to help pay for college tuition would be to purchase a place in our favorite vacation spot and share it with many friends and family members and occasionally rent it as a vacation rental . We loved doing Sedona and offering a beautifulplace to stay . One thing led to another and now we have 3 beautiful properties in Sedona to share with travelers! We get to share this beautiful place called Sedona and our beautiful home with other families and make them happy. We also get to help our kids with their tuition! I am available if you have any questions. I am a little bit of a perfectionist so I will admit our places are perfect!

Lovely home in the hills
This is a lovely home in the hills south of Sedona, just a short drive into West Sedona. The house is well appointed and was absolutely spotless. The beds were the most comfortable I’ve slept in outside my own home. Rebecca, the owner, provided a wealth of information about restaurants, hiking, and other things to do in the area (everything we tried were great recommendations). I do recommend you try to check in before dark, it was a little hard to find the driveway (the first time) at night. But after that, you’ll appreciate seeing the stars in this dark skies community.
Great Place, Great Location!
Soul of Sedona was perfect for our two-week stay! The home was exactly as advertised. It was very clean, convenient, and comfortable. Communications with Rebecca were excellent and the information that she provided regarding directions, the home, nearby restaurants, and things to do was excellent. My wife and I love Sedona. The hiking trails, the restaurants, the incredible scenery, and its proximity to other northern Arizona destinations can't be beat. This was our third Sedona stay in recent years, but the first time that we enjoyed the area with family and friends. Soul of Sedona made that possible. Our daughter and son-in-law stayed and played with us for a week - yay for the comfortable and spacious second bedroom! Friends, also vacationing in the southwest, stayed two days and a night - yay for the casita with its own bath (shower) facilities. All of the beds were comfortable. The spacious open concept kitchen-dining-living area easily accommodates 6 adults with an effective layout and comfortable furniture. Television worked! WiFi was fast and reliable! Wireless telephone signal was a bit weak, but we were always able to text. We didn't need to use the available land line phone. Soul of Sedona's location in a quiet neighborhood with spacious lots and a beautiful view was great! Sedona is a dark-sky community and we just loved not having street lights shining in our eyes and blotting out the stars. Soul of Sedona was just minutes from the restaurants and grocery stores of West Sedona and close to numerous trailheads. We walked to Secret Sliprock for an awesome view of Cathedral Rock. All-in-all, the Soul of Sedona is a Great Place in a Great Location! We hope it's available for our next Sedona stay!
Beautiful home, awesome location!
Everything was wonderful in the beautiful Sedona home! Close to everything and very comfortable! I would highly recommend it!
Great house and loved the location
We arrived and were in a hurry to start enjoying things. The house was spotless we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the casita one night and in the main house the rest of the time. The casita is perfect for a "being with family" but a quiet place to sleep. The black out curtains and super comfortable bed made it easy to oversleep.
The main house also had very comfortable beds so we asked Rebecca for "where to buy". Rebecca was super responsive to all of our silly questions. There is a big kitchen, lots of bathrooms and a very spacious home.
We built some wonderful memories in sedona and in this house and will be back again.
My husband, grown children and their spouses came to Sedona for the holidays. This home was very comfortable and clean. There is easy access to hiking trails that are away from the crowds. The views of the mountains are great! Beds are comfortable and kitchen is well equipped. The owner is responsive to any issues. The location of the home is just a few miles from Sedona central and is very quiet. If we find our way back to Sedona we will definitely stay at the Soul of Sedona again!
I cannot begin to express how wonderful our stay was at Soul of Sedona. The house, was everything and somehow even more than we expected. I am already planning our next vacation getaway there, it truly felt like going home. Thank you for everything, Rebecca, It was nothing short of magical.
Sedona is a city that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region of the U.S. state of Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 10,031.
Sedona's main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Sedona was named after Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of Theodore Carlton Schnebly, the city's first postmaster, who was celebrated for her hospitality and industriousness.[ Her mother, Amanda Miller, claimed to have made the name up because "it sounded pretty".
Native American history
The first documented human presence in the Sedona area dates to between 11,500 and 9000 B.C. It was not until 1995 that a Clovis projectile point discovered in Honanki revealed the presence of the Paleo-Indians, who were big game hunters. Around 9000 B.C., the pre-historic Archaic people appeared in the Verde Valley. These were hunter-gatherers and their presence in the area was longer than in other areas of the Southwest, most likely because of the ecological diversity and large amount of resources. They left by 300 A.D. There is an assortment of rock art left by the Archaic people in places near Sedona such as Palatki and Honanki.
Around 650 A.D., the Sinagua people entered the Verde Valley. Their culture is known for its art such as pottery, basketry and their masonry. They left rock art, pueblos, and cliff dwellings such as Montezuma Castle, Honanki, Palatki and Tuzigoot, especially in the later period of their presence. The Sinagua abandoned the Verde Valley about 1400 A.D. Researchers believe the Sinagua and other clans moved to the Hopi mesas in Arizona and the Zuni and other pueblos in New Mexico.
The Yavapai came from the west when the Sinagua were still there in the Verde Valley around 1300 A.D. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers. Some archaeologists place the Apache arrival in the Verde Valley around 1450 A.D. Many Apache groups were nomadic or seminomadic and traveled over large areas.
The Yavapai and Apache tribes were forcibly removed from the Verde Valley in 1876, to the San Carlos Indian Reservation, 180 miles (290 km) southeast. About 1,500 people were marched, in midwinter, to San Carlos. Several hundred lost their lives. The survivors were interned for 25 years. About 200 Yavapai and Apache people returned to the Verde Valley in 1900 and have since intermingled as a single political entity although culturally distinct residing in the Yavapai-Apache Nation.
Chapel of the Holy Cross
In 1956, construction of the Chapel of the Holy Cross was completed. The chapel rises 70 feet (21 m) out of a 1,000-foot (300 m) redrock cliff. The most prominent feature of the chapel is the cross. Later a chapel was added. Inside the chapel there is a window and a cross with benches and pews.[
