Second time staying here. Blue was great as usual. Very welcoming as usual. And I got a nice welcome from her dog Rusty.
Blue was a wonderful host. She did much more than is expected to make us comfortable in her home. She made excellent suggestions for local attractions then allowed us freedom to make our own choices. . Would highly recommend these accommodations.
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!
Like many before me, I find myself very lucky to have Blue as our hostess this time. She has everything I expected from amenities to directions to trails etc. of course, the best for people like us who are looking for hiking, we could not ask for better place that is so close to the most famous rocks in all Sedona. We had marvelous time! Thank you! Blue (and Rusty)
This was a great spot to stay if you are in Sedona for hiking or mountain biking. The trail access is great, Blue is more than accommodating, and it is nice and peaceful in her neighborhood at night.
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!
