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!

A beautiful view from a beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

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!

A great home base for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Sedona Spice is in a great, convenient location with beautiful views, especially at sunset. Though it is just two blocks from the main shopping/restaurant district in town, we were surprised at how quiet it was. The home was a perfect fit for our family of four (two teen boys). The main living area offers plenty of room to spread out and relax, with comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well stocked, and we enjoyed grilling steaks on the gas grill and eating on the patio to enjoy the beautiful views.

Cori and Dave were very accessible and helpful. This was our second visit to Sedona and we will be back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jessica, and please come back to Sedona Spice.... the place was so clean when you left, my cleaner gave me a discount ... never happened before. And to think -- you had two boys with you.... go figure! Our place is a little tight for two couples, but is ideal for a couple with 2 teenagers -- they get to fight over the bunk beds....We continue to think our "no pets" policy is a good one, because non-pet owners appreciate the complete absense of hairs, fleas, and dander. The inside of our house is spotless and clean at all times!! The big shade trees just outside the side windows are a comforting contrast to the "in-your-face" views out the east window in the living room. Thanks again!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved it!!! Perfect location with walking distance to Uptown Sedona with many restaurants and stores. The house was very nice, clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a relaxing vacation. Best views out the great room windows of red rock formations in the east (Snoopy and camel head).

Owner's Response: Nancy, appreciate our kind observations. Michigan seems to provide an inordinate number of bookings for us ... wonder why? You guys were so quiet we hardly knew you were there! Please come back.......Dave

Lovely, comfortable rental

  • 5 of 5

The space was comfortable, the views lovely and the location within Sedona excellent. The apartment was very well-equipped and even has a washer and dryer which allows one to pack lightly. A day-trip to the Grand Canyon was doable and worth the two-hour drive. Of course the hiking in Sedona is stunning with breathtaking views. My companions and I give Sedona Spice a high rating. The owner's communication with us about golf options for the non-hiker was clear and accurate. A good trip, indeed, enhanced by our lodging at Sedona Spice.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much, Shelley, for your super recommendation! Visitors from Connecticut seem always to be polite and appreciative... don't know why. And kudos for mentioning the GOLF - I sometimes forget that we have 5 great golf courses within 14 miles, from championship to 9-hole executive!

I would buy it from him today if he was selling. :)

  • 5 of 5

No kidding. Im afraid to write too much for fear of never being able to get back in but if David promises I'll always have a spot, ok. :) First, my sweetie and I were going to cancel due to health struggles. Not ONLY was David sympathetic and offered to help us in any way he could but he also immediately offered 3 friends/practitioners/healers and all of their contact info. He is what Sedona is about. So many genuinely kind hearted people. Love and Healing. :) The house: WOW! Everything the other reviews say and more is true. The views are the best of anywhere I've stayed. Everyday waking up to that was hard to leave it! The porch, the grill, the endless firewood and fireplace., washer and dryer, the space is open and airy and so comfy. The sofa, the huge chair that spins in front of the amazing views, its all in the pictures. What isnt in the description is the helpfulness of Cori at every turn...whatever we needed she offered her help with. The kindness and love and warmth in the space. There is a "vibe" in Sedona and that same vibe is in this space. You wont find that in any hotel or resort for sure. We LOVED your space David and its the first time I actually felt sadness leaving Sedona. I felt like I was leaving "home", more than just a vacation. Oh! And for those of you visiting: you must go to PISA LISA! Not only are their gourmet pizzas and decadent salads amazing but their staff are even more so. They became fast friends who parted with hugs and tears after only 10 days. We CANNOT wait to return. I mean literally we are looking at the calendar now haha. David: Thank you for sharing your home, for your healers and for being SUCH a blessing to us when we needed it most! Xoxo. Christy and John

Owner's Response: I had to think a while about how to answer this, because I've never received anything this overwhelming.It should first be said that Christy & John were exemplary communicators - they were open for suggestions and were curious about Sedona's offerings ... this couple left the house immaculate and were respectful of the place and our time. It is interesting that some visitors never communicate during their stay, content to enjoy the place in anonymity ... while others want to connect and share. Frankly, I am good with both approaches. It's just that when you get good people like Christy & John, it allows you to feel that you are sharing something rather than just charging money for it... and that is a really, really good feeling. THANK YOU, kids, for your review, and although I won't sell Sedona Spice to you, I will happily welcome you back any time!!

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.
