About the property

Two Bedrooms, Two Baths With Wide Mountain Views & 25-foot Living Room

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 Arizona

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!

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!

Exceptional place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Extremely well situated house, just two blocks from the uptown Sedona shops, but, as mentioned in other reviews, this is a very quiet neighborhood.

Well equipped kitchen, and spacious living room with a TV nook. Bedrooms were adequate, needing a bit more drawer storage space. But the beds were very comfortable.

Great deck space with a propane grill.

All in all, a very comfortable well located house that fit our needs extremely well. We would clearly return on the next visit to Sedona.

The owner and property manager were very helpful and responsive to any questions or requests.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sedona Spice. Perfect location, wonderful property manager (Cori), and an attentive owner (David). The home was clean, well maintained, and the large windows and deck made it a perfect place to relax. Be sure to visit the Chamber of Commerce before you go hiking. The volunteers helped us plan six days of hiking and all the recommendations were excellent. Our favorite hikes included Cathedral Rock and Broken Arrow. Excellent restaurants were Indian Garden, The Hideaway, and Wildflower Cafe. Thanks for a wonderful time! Terri and Thea

Owner's Response: LOCALS CAN LEARN FROM VISITORS!! Thanks Terri, for the reminder about our CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.... it is one of the best.... I forget to recommend going there on your first day .... not just for hikes but for nearly everything. Two of my friends volunteer there and one is a frequent hiking companion,we are both long-time members of the Sedona Westerners, and he is an open, communicative guy. You and your daughter left such a light footprint that we could hardly tell you were there! Thanks and please come back....

Wonderful Sedona Spice!

  • 5 of 5

Sedona Spice was the perfect property for our visit to Sedona! It is located a few blocks off the main street in uptown which is walking distance to restaurant and shops. However, it was quiet with a nice deck with view of the mountains.

The living room has a wall of windows. Beautiful views!

We spent our days hiking and loved the full kitchen to enable us to pack our lunches before each adventure!.

The washer & dryer were handy to wash our hiking clothes.

David and house manager, Cori were very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

We highly recommend this place for a wonderful stay in Sedona!

A rare find in Sedona

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay in Sedona. It's a 2-block walk to the uptown area with shops and restaurants, but it's really quiet. And that view! The pictures don't do it justice.

The main feature of the house is an enormous great room with a wall of east-facing windows looking out on one of the most magnificent views in Sedona. The room is furnished with an assortment of large, comfortable sofas and chairs; there's a working fireplace in the center of the east wall; the kitchen spans the back wall. At one end is a dining area with a full-sized table and chairs; the other end contains a flat-screen TV, sofa and chair. The house is tastefully furnished with plenty of interesting artwork and nicknacks.

Other features - the two bedrooms are at opposite ends of a longish hallway, which affords privacy and quiet for each bedroom. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a large custom built stone shower that features a deep seating ledge. There's another full bath in middle of the hallway that serves guests and the second bedroom. The beds are have comfortable foam mattresses.

I stayed there twice - in March and also in June. If you are lucky enough to stay there in June, you will feast on ripe organic apricots from the tree on the south side of the house.

The internet and wifi were adequate to stream movies. There was a hiccup with the internet when I first arrived that Dave fixed first thing the next morning.

The house was immaculate. They use unscented detergent on the linens (important to me) and All Clear and unscented dryer sheets are available to renters, but the washer/dryer area smelled strongly of scented laundry products. The towels and pillowcases smelled very faintly of scent. I'm sensitive to that and it didn't bother me overmuch.

Dave and Cori were gracious and responsive hosts. I'm persnickety and can be demanding and neither of them made me feel that way. Dave welcomed my suggestions and feedback.

I'm somewhat reluctant to share my review and let others know about this lovely little place. I'd like to keep it all to myself.

Thanks, Dave!

Owner's Response: Susan, you are too kind! Yes, you can be "persnickety" but you always give back -- the descrptions you give here are so thorough and so honest that I am going to plagiarize them directly into the website!! I know that the place was not 100% perfect for you, and you were kind with your comments. In fact, i really don't think you are that persickety -- I think you have an artist's eye and keen observation powers, and we were lucky to have you -- twice. In Gratitude, Dave

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.
