About the property

Sedona Spice ... is Eye Candy looking out AND looking in! This Amazing Getaway is centered within full view of the amphitheater of cathedral rocks that IS Sedona!

Our amazing location places you so advantageously, you may feel in resonant harmony with all its artistic, spiritual, adventure filled, and spectacular surroundings. The area is renowned for not only for the artistry of it's inhabitants but for its energy, reputed to bring you a feeling of great peace, centering, and well being.

Spicy Cinnamon Reds adorn this upscale Home Away from Home, a fully equipped top floor-Top View Vibrant cottage which has already inspired twenty-five 5-Star REVIEWS on VBRO.

This is the top floor of a large building which also houses the caretaker in a separate lower building. During your stay you will hear not a peep because the floors/ceilings are double-slung sound-deadening drywall.

Located in Uptown Sedona - at the entrance to Oak Creek Canyon, 95 miles north of Phoenix, 28 miles to Flagstaff, 100 miles to Grand Canyon, and 3 precious miles upwind of dusty, trafficky West Sedona, Sedona Spice boasts new central heating & air conditioning. Please sample the varied award winning Restaurants and Cantinas, some withing walking distance!

We have decided NOT to charge you for the cleaning that will be required upon your departure, leaving you free to explore, pamper yourself, shop the special artisan galleries or simply sight see is nestled in a quiet neighborhood off the beaten path -- restored southwestern home.

Points to remember:

Unobstructed views through 4 big windows in living room.

You can walk to restaurants, Hyatt Resort, shopping, even mountain trailheads!

Absolutely private and quiet. Easy access.

Place your favorite scented candle in our GIANT fireplace with custom slate chimney for added romantic glow, or when visiting in winter & fall, brighten your days with the plentiful firewood which is always complimentary.

Enjoy meals outside on the long deck after grilling your grass-fed steaks on the propane-fired BBQ, provided just for YOU!

About David Congleton

I retired to Sedona in 2004, after renting here 8 times! I know the area inside & out, and purchased this home for something to do and for retirement income. We try to keep the rates reasonable and consider this to be a great value, with privacy, centrality, absence of traffic or noise, off the beaten path yet within blocks of all the activity you could want.

And if you don't know, Sedona is considered a hiker's & mountain bikers' paradise.

David Congleton purchased this cottage in 2011

Why David Congleton chose Sedona

We have installed all new windows, floors, carpets, furnishings, beds --- all within the past three years.

Everything works ... and if it doesn't we fix it!

The whole place still has a 'new' feeling that is palpable. And very artsy - not a sterile rental....

What makes this cottage unique

If you prefer a southwestern 'homey' stay, and golf resorts are not your thing, this is the place for you ... colorful, well appointed, comfortable & inspiring.

Decorated & Maintained by an Artist!

A beautiful view from a beautiful home!

What a gift to wake up to a warm fire and incredible mountain views. This home was a great choice for us. It offered everything we needed to enjoy Sedona and all that it offers. Thank you!

Great Location !! Wonderful scenic views !!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sedona Spice was outstanding! The home is ideally located on a slight hillside to enjoy Sedona, the shops, and restaurants. In a quiet, residential neighborhood you look out over the beautiful skyline of East Sedona. The sight is beautiful and changes with the change of light in the day. The site pictures don't capture the scenic beauty or cozy comfort of the home. Our host has all the amenities. A well stocked kitchen, plenty of laundry & bedding supplies and a living room ready to entertain or relax. While we didn't use the fully stocked wood burning fire place, we did enjoy the large living room sofa and chairs to recover after long days on the trails. The Host was gracious to supply a State Park pass for access to most of the parks and trails in the area. We enjoyed day trips to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Jerome, Tuzigoot, MONTEZUMA's well and castle. In our spare time we hiked Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, and the five neighboring Vortexs. The choice of fine dining is unlimited and outstanding. The home is very secure and has a car port drive through at the from door for easy access. I would recommend this home for anyone looking for a wonderful, scenic retreat in Sedona. Thank you Dave and we hope to see you in the future !

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Sedona Spice over the holiday season. We were visiting Sedona to hike in the beautiful red rock country. The house was perfect for my family - my husband and I and our 2 teenagers. The location of the house is great, beautiful views out the big living room windows, convenient to restaurants and shops, and a short drive to great hikes. And the home itself is really nice inside, comfortable, quiet and clean, and very spacious. It was perfect to come back after a long hike to a nice hot shower, a comfortable couch and great views while the sun set. David and Cori were very helpful in planning and making sure we had what we needed. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Debra, you are most welcome, and your glowing review is much appreciated! I grew up near Champaign-Urbana in the 50's & 60's, and we had sub-zero temp's like you're having in Chicago this month .... brrrr.... please consider moving to Sunny Sedona!! P.S. This review seems to support the idea that Sedona Spice will happily accomodate a family of four.

Nice property, great views, not comfortable for four adults

  • 3 of 5

Sedona Spice is a lovely home in a wonderful location. The master bedroom and bath were very nice, as was the second bath. The second bedroom, however, was lacking. The double bed/upper twin combo was in a corner. If two adults are sharing the lower, one must crawl over the other. The upper twin has a metal ladder with a metal frame surrounding a plastic covered-mattress. There is a small closet with one shelf and no dresser. There is a small table with an office chair that is missing an arm. The ceiling light fixture is the only light.

The deck and view are fantastic. However, for half our week stay we had only three deck chairs(?)

A comfortable living, dining and entertainment area. Adequate towels, linens and a nicely stocked kitchen. We didn't use the fireplace but it is very impressive.

Owner's Response: Kathleen, thank you for your honest, if negative review. It stings to hear all that, especially because it is the first one that was not 5-stars. However, we have taken it to heart and addressed each and every one of your issues! I will change the HomeAway listing to be very clear that 4 adults will challenge one of them to climb into the top bunk -- not a problem for kids, but maybe for big peoples. Your comments were helpful.

Fabulous views!

  • 4 of 5

The views cannot be beat. You are within walking distance of the main shopping/eating area so you do not have to drive in the sometimes difficult traffic scene.

Sedona is broadly divided into three areas:

1. Village of Oak Creek

2. West Sedona

3. Uptown Sedona

The VOC is actually 6 miles south of the town of Sedona, and is primarily a golf & retirement community.

West Sedona is the 'working' part of town, with strip malls & commercial features. Some views.

Uptown Sedona is closest to the red rocks & hogs the best views... stunning vistas and cathedral-like mountains, nearby. The downside is that it is a 10-minute drive to groceries and drugstores.
