“Dragonfly Sanctuary - Everything I Expected and More!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed yesterday for a stay in September 2015 NEW
My husband and I planned this Sedona trip for our 25th wedding anniversary. We feel so fortunate to have found Dragonfly Sanctuary as our place to stay for this bucket list trip. The house, the property, the views!! Everything we expected and more. We loved everything about it from my first communications with Jan to the follow up I received from Devara after the trip. I loved the fact that I could hike up the steps to the Stairway to Heaven and right out into the wilderness and onto marked trails without getting into my car to drive to a spot. We definitely did other hikes, but having this right out the back door was a bonus! We are not hot tub people, but were grateful for it after a couple of days of tough hikes and a trip to the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the green swing to watch the stars and moon fade (we were early to bed and early to rise, never really getting used to time change) and took full advantage of having the kitchen, grill and all amenities. The proximity to town yet the complete private setting of this home is also a huge plus for this property. We would definitely go back if traveling to Sedona again.

Friends getaway Large groups
The property was "as advertised". I recommend the location. The property was a good value for the price paid. The property provided wifi/internet access. My security deposit was returned on time.
We enjoyed our stay at the Dragonfly Sanctuary & Garden. The location is great and the house is lovely. The special viewing up on the hill on the back of the property was a treat. The only complaint that I can give is that the bed in the master bedroom was lumpy and the fitted sheet was worn out and would not stay on the bed properly. We did not get a chance to try out the bed in the 2nd bedroom but we did have someone stay in the guest house and they enjoyed having their own little private area. The house is tastefully decorated as well as the property itself. We would recommend this property to our friends if they visit Sedona. The owner was quick to refund us our security deposit after our stay.
We recently spent 3 weeks at the Dragonfly. Location was excellent, layout was fine. Amenities were haphazard at best, with cooking items not being a priority here.
My biggest problem with this location was the cleanliness or lack thereof, of the property. I understand that they have a contracted maintenance company clean the property, but they do a poor job. The bed linens are very old and pilled and my wife washed everything in the master bedroom, including the comforter and it was not a pretty sight to see the dirt that came off that comforter. Bed pillows were discolored from use and not pleasant.
The second bedroom is small and not advertised as a Murphy Bed. It was comfortable, but the cleanliness issue with the sheets and comforter was equal to the MBR.
The living room section was broken, with the rods holding the section together stripped out. The couch was so dirty that we covered it totally with our own covers and tried to ignore the 30 degree lean caused by the unattached sectional. Couch was supposed to be beige, but it resembled darker browns along the cushions and seating. Dust bunnies on the ceilings and beams showed that the cleaning crew needs some additional guidance.
Outdoor seating and amenities were fine. Basic hot tub and a lovely seating area outdoors for your morning coffee amidst the splendor of Sedona.
We made do with the location but would not recommend it to friends or relatives.
The outside gate to the trail that is advertised is reached by climbing 3 flights of shale steps, that are cracking and noted "slippery when wet". Definitely not for the faint of heart of those with knee issues.
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
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
