Blue is such an amazing person and host. Her place is more than comfortable and great to come back to after a long day of hiking or traveling around Sedona. Blue is so helpful and truly wants you to have a pleasant stay. She pays great attention to detail. The way Blue hosts shows you that she is more than a host, she is a great person who wants you to have a great stay.
If you like to hike and want to stay at the base of Cathedral Rock you would be hard pressed to find a more convenient location. Our host Blue was kind, welcoming and a tidy house keeper. In Blue's attempt to make us comfortable she offered a kitchen cupboard and a refrigerator shelf. We made use of the front and back porch seating area. The front had a great view, the back was a shady comfortable space with a table to enjoy meals. Our bedroom was just off the kitchen with a private bath. If you enjoy dogs you might enjoy meeting Blue's dog Rusty.
Second time staying here. Blue was great as usual. Very welcoming as usual. And I got a nice welcome from her dog Rusty.
Just perfect! Blue was a great host and I felt like a friend 10 minutes after I arrived in her home as she made me feel very comfortable from the start. Everything was exactly as she indicated in her writeup. Her home is at the end of a road and is extremely quiet, has a very comfortable bed and allowed a very restful sleep. So much different (& better) than a hotel! The coffee she provided was some of the best I ever had and I found out she doesn't even drink coffee. Her home is laid out such that you feel like you are in a private area. If I am ever blessed enough to be able to go back to Sedona there is no doubt I will be looking up "Hiker Heaven" to see if her home is still on Airbnb. Blue provided maps of the area and some helpful advice on where to go for one of my adventures. This was my first experience using Airbnb and I am very happy with the outcome.
Blue was kind, helpful host. Accomodation fits the description. The room is beautiful - filled with light, has lots of space, big closet and clean, nice bathroom attached to it. Usage of kitchen is limited, as listed. There is garage for a car that is great during the day so the car stays cold. Backyard is grassy and fenced, quiet, ideal for star-gazing at night and reading during day. Neighbours are quiet, house is located in pieceful part of Sedona and hiking trail is right next to house, going to Red Rock and the creek - nice morning walk. Her dog got along fine with mine, no problems. Blue was helpful with hiking tips and she also let me have my space. Pleasant experience, very nice accomodation at reasonable price.
Blue was a kind and welcoming host. She gave us great directions to her home and had many recommendations for hikes, restaurants and activities in the area. Her house is off the beaten path, very peaceful and quiet with beautiful views and wildlife. The bedroom was clean and comfortable with a private washroom. We really enjoyed our stay with Blue (and Rusty). Thanks again!
About the Host, Blue
I'm a retired buidling designer, with a strong interest in hiking. I chose my home for its location -- private, with out-the-door beautiful hikes. I've lived in this area for 30 years and have a wealth of knowledge about it. I enjoy helping others enjoy the endless beauty here!
