Why Jon Whitcomb chose Sedona
We wanted a House with a Guest House so our friends and relatives can visit. There are a nearly infinite number of things to do in Sedona Relax atop shaded boulders that dot the 16-mile gorge of Oak Creek Canyon, take a rugged Jeep tour or helicopter tour deep into Sedona's authentic Indian ruins or scale a red rock monolith that penetrates the crystal blue sky. On the other hand, some Sedona visitors choose to do very little at sitting back and marveling at the reflection of the sun at dusk that seems to make the Red Rocks appear an even richer and more vibrant hue, as if they glowed from within. There is a strong belief that this place is home to several Sedona vortexes - specific focal points of the earth's energy - and they travel many miles just to feel the renewal of energy in their own life. Whatever the case, Sedona has a way of taking your breath away and reminding us that there aren't many places on earth quite as spectacular as Sedona.
What makes this Guest House unique
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and StarBucks are only a short walk from the Red Rock Escape. I love to be able to walk to dinner and have as many drinks as I want and be able to walk back in the starlight to the Guest House without worrying about driving! The mountain views are as good as the outlying area with out the inconvenience of having to drive . Some Vacation rentals out of the city are not accessible when we have a rain storm. The thunder echoing off the ring of mountains around the Red Rock Escape is exciting and so mush different than in the flan lands. Their is a special feeling when driving in to Sedona which many believe is caused by the Vortexes and I am a believer the more times I visit my second home.

Perfect location, good hot tub and wi-fi - downhill after that..disappointing for this much money.
The location is the very best part of this property - it is easy to get into town and to find your way back. The outside is nice, with your own parking area, and fragrant roses along the street. The back yard, to which there is access to use the hot tub (plan in advance and turn up the heat or you'll be in a tepid tub!) The privacy fence is effective if not very attractive, but after a day of exploring it doesn't matter that much. The views from the back yard of the red rock formations are beautiful - as I said..perfect location.
The interior of the property doesn't appear to have had any attention in a very long time. The faucets are very outdated and corroded - the bathroom sink dribbled constantly unless you got it in exactly the right position. The small shower obviously used to have a door, which is gone although the extrusions remain, replaced by a shower curtain. There was a dirty razor and a melted old bar of soap in the shower caddy. The vanity is awful...like you were in a bad service station bathroom...and the walls are dirty (you can see where "stuff" has run down to the baseboards and never been wiped off). The bathroom door does not fit the opening, and someone tried to compensate for that by not mortising the hinges, which leaves a good half-inch gap of open air. Everything done in the bathroom with the door closed can be heard in the bedroom, which is not very "romantic". The corners of the shower were dirty and mildew looking. There is a small hole in the bathroom wall, and a hole in the bedroom ceiling. The door between the bedroom and the front room is louvers, so does not keep out sound from the front (like the tv). It is advertised to have a pull-out sofa bed, which is there, but the mattress is so far past prime (springs sticking through the cover) that the heavy foam pad you have to drag down from an upper closet by standing on a chair, so dangerous, hardly helps, and the whole thing makes so much noise when you try to roll over - there also was no bedding for it that I could locate. My husband snores loudly, so we look for a place where we can sleep separately if need be - this pull-out isn't suitable for anyone over the age of 4. Wound up sleeping on the pad on the front room floor....not acceptable for someone almost 70. When I slid the chair over a bit in order to open the sofa bed, there was an old rawhide chew and and a cracker under it. I have pictures of all of this but see nowhere to attach them! Yucky
Location, owner very communicative
Great location, quiet neighborhood, walking very convenient to many places, as was driving. Absolutely fell in love with Sedona! Guesthouse comfy, liked all the windows for light. Bed very comfy. Jon resolved any issues that came up, which were very few. Let us check in early----- always a bonus! Would stay again..
Clean, Comfy and Cozy with Spectacular Views!
We had a great stay at the guesthouse. Everything was clean, the owner Jon was very responsive when we couldn't find a light switch, we had access to the Arizona room since the main house wasn't rented out, hot tub with spectacular views of red rocks was nice. Enjoyed backyard. Gas BBQ was excellent. Very quiet and peaceful. Nice selection of pots, dishes, and other essentials. Jon allowed us to check out late which was greatly appreciated. Deposit was returned quickly. Can't wait to return!
Needs deep cleaning
Mostly the small unit (attatched to a home) needs a serious cleaning. We found many spider webs and a few bugs walking around. There is no dishwasher and no garbage disposal. The walls need painting and the unit needs updating.
the W/D are in the big house and you need to coordinate with them, which is awkward. We had to ask twice for our deposit back.
we will not be staying here again.
Thanks you Doug for your message.
I am changing cleaning ladies to make sure this does not happen again.
We have a company that does bug control and I will check with them to control the bugs.
The houses in that area of Sedona are on septic tanks so we can not use garbage disposals.
Most people like the mid century modern look of the Guest House.
I have had no complaints about the laundry room sharing.
I did not understand just how convenient this little guest house was until we arrived. I LOVED being able to hike right from the house (1.25 mi to trailhead) or have my husband drop me off at other trailheads and hike my way back and down to the house. I walked to the 'Uptown' shopping area and took morning walks on the quiet streets. The best part was finding out that a GREAT massage therapist had a studio 3 houses away. Talk about a treat after hiking all day. So nice having a fenced yard for the dogs and we really enjoyed the folks renting the main house. Our dogs became fast friends. Understand that this is an older home... but it was very adequate for our stay. I cooked quite a bit and the stove and oven worked beautifully. The hot tub broke right after our arrival and Jon had a repair person out immediately. Unfortunately it could not be fixed right away but I was impressed by Jon's immediate response. I had to work while I was there and the wifi speed was very fast. This was really a great experience on our first Sedona visit.
Home from home.....
My fourth visit to Sedona and the fourth time I've stayed here. It's clean, functional, well equipped and very comfortable for a single or couple. It's ideally suited for uptown Sedona and is in a safe, quiet neighbourhood. The back garden provides a great dark space to watch the stars and dream of other worlds. Haven't yet managed to use the hot tub but hey it was winter when i visited!
I fly in from England to Sedona and the ability to arrive late at night and gain access to the property is an added bonus. I've recommended this property to many friends who are visiting Sedona. Jon the owner is also a helpful guy answering my many questions in advance by email speedily and efficiently.
I feel so at home in this property.
Very happy to recommend this property.
Do you think staying within walking distance to entertainment, shopping, and restaurants is a good way to spend your vacation, car free?
Do you like short walks? Uptown and the Sedona Heritage Museum (735 Jordan Rd Sedona, AZ 86336) and Hiking Trails are nearby( 1.25 miles)!
If someone wants to take the car and others want to stay behind they will find plenty to do in Uptown Sedona. More flexibility for everyone!
Walking to and from breakfast, lunch or dinner is a great way to view Sedona's Red Rocks and to feel the energy Sedona's special atmosphere.
