About This Listing
Sedona wine country vacation rental overlooking scenic Lower Oak Creek Valley. Peaceful retreat eight miles south of town. 2-bedroom 2-bath home on historic Page Springs Road. Sleeps 4-6. Six-foot soaking tub. Expansive deck. BBQ. Great views.
The home is fully equipped. Just bring your groceries, settle in, and enjoy a truly special visit to this lovely part of the world. Included in your stay is a complimentary wine-tasting for two (with souvenir wine-glasses) at one of our local wineries.
This spacious, magical vacation home sits high above scenic, historic Page Springs, below ancient Sinagua Indian ruins, looking down on the meandering Oak Creek Valley with its abundant, green cottonwood forest.
The 2.5 acre property is bordered by Coconino National Forest to the south and to the west.They say Page Springs today is "like Sedona used to be, 20 years ago." Sedona is often noisy, traffic-infested and anything but peaceful. But, drive a mere 8 miles and you are in a high-desert paradise, the heart of Sedona's famous wine country, with easy access to Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, Jerome (the famous ghost town - think Halloween 365 days a year!) Tuzigoot National Monument, Old Town Cottonwood, prehistoric petroglyph sites, and numerous other natural and historic wonders.
There is a comfortable fold-out couch in the living room, that sleeps two adults for an additional charge. We are sorry but we can not accommodate pets, or children under the age of 10. We provide complimentary wireless internet and long-distance telephone service within the 50 states. Cell phone service can be a little sketchy, especially if you have coverage other than Verizon.
You can learn much more about us, the home, the amenities, and the surrounding area by exploring the website of our former B&B. Search for "Page Springs Bed and Breakfast." You will be staying at the "Upper House." Please do not try to make a reservation on the B&B website. We are no longer in the B&B business, and are now booking strictly through AirBnB.
You will have the entire house to yourselves. Connie and Andrew are writers, public speakers and filmmakers who travel most of the time. The only off-limits areas are the RV, the garage and the locked outdoor storage area in the back.
Interaction with Guests
If we are traveling, you will be greeted by our property manager, Ingrid. She will give you the tour of the house and the property, make sure you have all the information you need, and then leave you in peace and privacy to enjoy your stay. Ingrid lives close by, and is available in the event of any questions or emergencies.
Page Springs is Sedona's best-kept secret. It's convenient to everything, yet has a peaceful, rustic feeling that you will not find in Sedona itself. We are just 1.5 miles from three popular wineries. From the house, you can hike down to the bridge over Oak Creek, and find yourself sitting on the banks an idyllic river, before stopping in at the famous Page Springs Restaurant [now Up The Creek Grill & Bar] for a meal or a libation. For the more adventurous, you can hike into Coconino National Forest directly adjoining our property, climb up to the mesa above, and marvel at the 50-odd Sinagua Indian ruins up there. The view from the mesa is absolutely stunning!
Page Springs Road has recently received a national scenic/historic designation. It leads from Route 89A past our home, directly to the famous local wineries, including Page Springs Cellars, Oak Creek Winery and Javelina Leap Winery, 1.5 miles down the road.
Sedona, with its world-famous Red Rocks and other delights, is an easy ten-minute drive to the north, while picturesque Old Town Cottonwood is ten minutes to the south. If you have never visited a ghost town in the Old West, Jerome, with its 5-star restaurant "The Asylum," lies just 25-minutes to the south of Page Springs. You can even take a day trip to the Grand Canyon or the Hopi Indian reservation. We are truly at the center of a "spiral of wonders!"
We recommend that you have your own transportation, although taxi and airport shuttle services are available. On the other hand, you can easily hike or bicycle down to the Bubbling Ponds birding area, Oak Creek bridge, and the famous Page Springs Restaurant (now re-named "Up The Creek Grill & Bar.") The wineries begin half a mile beyond the bridge, after the Fish Hatcheries.

We had a great experience staying at Rancho Feliz. The house was beautiful and very clean. There is obvious attention to detail in the care taking of this property. Ingrid was great to work with and answered all questions promptly. The location was convenient to Sedona but far enough away to be quiet and private. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay again if in the Sedona area.
My husband and I stayed at Rancho Feliz for a week long vacation -our first time in the Sedona area. Our hosts and the property manager, Ingrid, made us feel very welcome. We received information about the house and the area before arriving and Ingrid was available to answer questions. The house was immaculate and exactly as pictured. It is a lovely home, in a beautiful setting and provided everything we needed for a relaxing, comfortable stay. It was a perfect vacation home for us, quiet and private, away from the bustle of Sedona, with a wealth of recreational opportunities close by. We appreciated the books and information about the area and things to do that the owners have compiled for guests. We enjoy being able to cook while on vacation and were pleased with the home's well-appointed kitchen and barbeque grill. The hiking around Sedona is glorious but dusty, so it was especially nice to have access to a washer and dryer. We loved being able to be relax outside on the deck with our morning coffee watching hot air balloons float across the morning sky, and at night the back patio was great for star gazing. We’d definitely come back to Rancho Feliz again.
Great home in a great location. Quiet, great views. Home immaculate with everything provided. Did not want to leave and hope to return. Ingrid was helpful and the guest notebook was well done.
Rancho Feliz provided a wonderful spring break (March 21-28, '15) experience for my partner, her parents and me. We loved spending time having breakfast at the table on the broad, sheltered front porch. The view from there is lovely with hills in the foreground and red rocks off in the distance. We felt so lucky to enjoy the very tastefully decorated home with its open floor plan for the living/dining area and the very well-appointed kitchen. We enjoyed using the grill on the back patio area as part of preparing several meals. The two bedroom areas, on either side of the open living space, are very comfortable and just right for two couples to share the house -- the perfect combination of public and private spaces. The neighborhood was very quiet for us. The home is set well above the road and above the next-door neighbor who was very quiet. The place was immaculately clean and well-prepared for our stay. The caretaker had turned on lights for our arrival and made us feel so welcomed. I will make a special effort to stay again at Connie's & Andrew's home when I next visit the Sedona area and I'll recommend that you do the same.
Our stay at Rancho Feliz was very well coordinated. The hosts sent explicit directions and Ingrid the manager showed us everything in the house. The location is a bit removed from the crowds of Sedona and is very relaxing. The house itself is very well-appointed, has a nice porch with an awesome daytime view (watch for the hot air balloons), offers a working kitchen with all the pots and pans you need, and a great soaking tub. The artwork and traditional southwestern artifacts create a pleasant interior harmony. Connie and Andrew even left a complimentary wine tasting coupon, which we really appreciated--the vineyard is just down the road.
Everything was fantastic and as described or better. We only see our parents in Arizona one time a year so it is important that the time is well spent and enjoyable and it was all of that. The home was very comfortable and had everything that we needed and more than we expected. We even enjoyed a campfire one evening under the stars. Ingrid was great and took care of anything we needed. We highly recommend staying here.
Our stay at Rancho Feliz was absolutely delightful. Although we did not meet Connie and Andrew, we were in great hands with Ingrid and Thomas. They were both amazing! There was a very difficult snow storm during our arrival time, they were both extremely helpful and communicative in figuring this out and preparing the home for our arrival, going so far as to personally shovel the snow from the extremely long driveway, in the freezing cold. We have never been treated better, than by Ingrid and Thomas.
The property itself was amazing! Peaceful and quiet with epic views from every room. What a charming place. Carmen and were extremely happy with the decision to stay here. What a lovely time we had. Thank you Ingrid and Thomas! :)
