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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Sedona Spice is a beautiful home with magnificant views! Pictures cannot capture how beautiful the view is from the house! We highly recommend this rental home. It is clean and comfortable. It has a great kitchen! We enjoyed spending time on the deck watching the sunrise each morning and star gazing every evening. It is only a few blocks from coffee shops, restaurants and retail shops. Hiking and other outdoor activities are conveniently located to this property!

Amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

The reason for my visit was to bring my 95 year old father from Tennessee to Sedona in order to celebrate his baby brother's 90th birthday! Re-read that first sentence and let it sink in for a moment. My father has always thought Sedona to be one of the most beautiful places in the world, so I wanted to find just the right house to rent for our stay (can you say pressure!). The online pictures of "Sedona Spice" looked wonderful and the truly great thing was that the views in person were even more outstanding!! My father was thrilled with the house I'd chosen and so was I (huge relief)! At one point during the week at least 20 family members congregated at the house to visit. The large great room and balcony made it easy to accommodate everyone from age 95 years to 5 months. And lets not forget the fabulous location of the house, just a few blocks from Uptown Sedona, on a corner lot, in a quiet residential area!! And have I mentioned the amazing views?! We sat in the large, comfy, round, swivel sofa and watched with contented awe as the setting sun created the most amazing light show on the red and white rocks visible through the picture windows (sigh). The beds were really comfortable (amazing), the house was stocked with everything necessary to feel right at home. My only regret, the only bad thing I can say, is that we only reserved the house for one week! What was I thinking!! Coming all the way from Tennessee and only staying one week! Oh well, lesson learned. Next time we stay at "Sedona Spice" it will be for at least two weeks!!! And believe me, there will be a next time! Thank you David for sharing your wonderful home! Phyllis and father Howard from Tennessee

Sedona Spice! A perfect name for a perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously! Beautiful place with the most amazing views!! The location is perfect for those who wish to walk a few blocks to the main drag or drive a bit down the road to numerous trailheads. The best part is after a day of hiking, shopping, cruising the area, you come “home” to this slice of heaven for some relaxation. Have a glass of wine and enjoy the view! Then get a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. This is truly a wonderful place and we hope to return.

Thank you so much for sharing this place with us. Sedona is the most beautiful place and staying in this beautiful home made for a trip we will always remember. Thank you!! Jodene & Mike
