Centrally located in the Verde Valley, our home offers a completely private apartment situated in beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. Its a half mile from the center of old town, and only 15 minutes from both Sedona and Jerome making it the perfect location to explore the valley from.

If you love hiking, swimming, horse back riding, ancient pueblos and cliff dwellings, or want to tour the wine country of northern Arizona, our place offers the ideal location.

Guest Access

When you stay with us you will have access to a very private lushly landscaped acre. Its fully fenced making it the perfect place to bring young children.

Your apartment has its own entrance and is situated away from the main house so you can come and go as you please.

Interaction with Guests

We generally like to leave our guests to enjoy their privacy but we love to meet new people and guide new comers to some of the wonders the Verde Valley has to offer.

The Neighborhood

Situated on a private dead end road we are secluded and yet only a half mile from wine tasting rooms, boutiques and many restaurants.

Getting around

Not much public transit here. You will need either a car or a horse, but if you are renting a vehicle its best to get something with a high clearance if you want to full access to the valley.

  • Carol and Joshua were warm, welcoming hosts, and it was our pleasure staying in their casita. They were even willing to give us directions to some secret local swimming holes that we never would have found on our own. The property is right in the middle of Cottonwood, which we were pleasantly surprised with - a perfect way to experience Sedona and the surrounding sights without getting caught up in the tourist traps of downtown Sedona.

  • We spent some much needed time away at Carol and Joshua's property and it was everything we hoped it would be and more. The property was gorgeous and rejuvenating. We absolutely loved sitting on our back porch amongst the garden. We found ourselves wanting nothing more than to spend time relaxing amongst the incredible amounts of green. Our toddler loved exploring the magical property. Carol and Joshua were so generous. In addition to stocking our fridge with eggs from their chickens, fresh jam, and local bread, they also shared their amazing garden produce. Their family, including their beautiful daughters and dog, Becky, were perfect hosts, always available to chat or get advice from, but never intruding. We also loved how close the property was to Old Town Cottonwood (you could walk there if you'd like) and yet it felt so far removed from the rest of the world. We cannot wait to return again!

  • Really beautiful area. The grounds are gorgeous and the house was perfect for my brother, mom and I. Old cottonwood is a cool area and conveniently located to interesting sites. Carol and Joshua make the experience rich. These 2 lovely people are the salt of the earth. There's so much we would have missed out on, had it not been for their excellent suggestions. L(phone number hidden)ed spending time with them. Such generous hosts.

  • Carol and Joshua were attentive hosts and the Garden Oasis was exactly that, a lovely retreat. We were able to cook in and eat out at fine restaurants. The local hiking and archeology is thrilling. The accommodations have lovely details from organic eggs and vegetables the hosts make available, to the roosters in the morning. This was almost an agritourist stay. And the flowers are wonderful.

  • We had such an amazing time! We had our own cottage and Zen garden for ourselves! Very nice and friendly hosts.

    The surroundings are amazing and the location is more convenient than we initially assumed, because the place is the center of a few interesting small towns (Jerome, Old Cottonwood), trails (Sycamore Canyon, Verde River), historic landmarks (Tuzigoot, Palatki Ruins) and of course Sedona is not that far away.

    We definitely plan to come back!

  • We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely "home away from home". We were welcomed warmly by the Capy's and felt comfortable to enjoy this as if it was our own home. The house is well appointed, the kitchen is a prefect place to cook. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed having our morning toast and coffee by the fountain, just outside the back door. It was a little slice of heaven. We loved having fresh eggs every morning, I think the best eggs I have ever tasted ! We cooked fresh veggies every night from the garden.
    Cottonwood is a charming town and close enough to Sedona, yet far enough that we did not feel like we were in a "touristy area".
    Such a very wonderful place and we will be back !

  • This was the perfect place for a quiet getaway. The 'casita' was welcoming, extremely clean, and had everything we needed to prepare delicious meals (when we didn't want to dine out at one of the amazing local restaurants!) It is just a short drive to Sedona, the many hiking trails, vortexes, and historical monuments. Carol, Joshua, and their girls were fantastic hosts: very pleasant, helpful, and full of good information about local attractions. They have information and guidebooks in the suite for guests to use and the wifi worked perfectly to keep us informed and connected. It was a treat to be on their private land and to have access to their beautiful peaceful garden and the most amazing starlit skies. I would highly recommend their place to anyone visiting the area and I hope to return again myself.

  • Bev and I had a really nice time staying at the Old Town Cottonwood Garden Oasis. We enjoyed the quiet, rural atmosphere, and yet within a 1and 1/2 mile walking distance of Old Town Cottonwood. Joshua, Carol, their two girls and great dog, Becky, were the perfect hosts. I'd go back there again. To sum it up, we had a sweet, comfortable stay.
    Sincerely, Bill

  • Our stay in Cottonwood at the garden oasis was fantastic! Carol and Joshua welcomed us warmly and gave us excellent recommendations for hiking and restaurants in the area. They were very thoughtful and generous hosts and the casita was great--very clean and welcoming--and we enjoyed sunny breakfasts in the beautiful gardens. A great spot for relaxation and exploring the area.

  • Nice accommodation and very generous hosts! Carol & Joshua welcomed us warmly, gave us access to their greenhouse and also gave us honey from their hives, as well as other food. They were very helpful with suggestions. Great hosts all around.
