This neighborhood is peaceful and (website hidden) is known as the panoramic region of sedona because of the stunning views and red rock vistas. You will have unobstructed views of cathedral rock, pyramid rock and 7 sisters.
The town is just a short 10 to 15 drive away so you will have the best of both worlds at this location.
You must have a car to stay at this location.
We keep a full set of house rules , including check out proceedures, inside the home.
The house was as described. The hot tub did not work, nor did the internet until we found a tiny piece of paper with the password written on it. The manager of the property was unresponsive to multiple phone calls and emails, and we are still in dispute over the final cost of the rental. Beware.
I am happy you found the house as described. I am not sure what you are referring to about my unresponsiveness. It's important for guests to send messages on the airbnb message thread and i sent you multiple messages in response to your queries. The hot tub did not work because you broke the panel. It has been 2 weeks and you have not yet paid for the extra accommodation you rented. Your family rented the main house with 3 bedrooms.When you decide to rent the studio as well , it naturally means incurring the cost of that.I hope you will pay soon.
The house - and especially the views, are amazing. If you have a chance to spend some time in Sedona with family or friends, I highly recommend it. The location and the house will relax you, and provide a great base for exploring Sedona. Rachel is a thoughtful host, and is committed to ensuring you have a good stay - even emailing/calling across timezones.
The location was really great. The house worked well for a large group. Not all amenities were working as best as possible during our stay but overall the house worked out for our trip. The patio and view are beautiful. Good kitchen and well stocked for a large group to cook and eat.
This was a beautiful home with the perfect view. It was a great size for our group, and everything we could have hoped for by the description and photos! The only thing tricky was parking because last minute we had another couple who had to drive separately. Rachel and her mom were extremely accommodating about the 3rd car that we had given the parking regulations in the neighborhood. We can't wait to come back and visit! Thanks again Rachel!
My friends and I had a lovely weekend relaxing in Sedona at the House of the Smiling Sun. The views are as described, and the house is designed to allow visitors to take them all in. The kitchen is well-suited to cooking, and the hot spa was a welcome treat. The house is in a low-light zone so the star gazing is wonderful.
We have not been to Sedona and did not appreciate what it meant to face cathedral Rock. The entire experience was a delight,the house was a modern charmer, wonderfully laid out, the views wonderful, internet access and hard line phone helped my needs for business contact. The entire expefience ws wonerful. Rachel handled the questions we had with incredible speed and efficiency. It could not be improved
Staying at Rachel’s ‘House of the smiling sun’ was one of the highlights of our holiday. We initially were booked into the ‘Kokopelli studio’, which was very lovely, light, airy with beautiful views of the Sedona mountains. We ended being upgraded to the 3 bedroom luxury home, also with breathtaking views. The house was amazing with large cathedral windows, high ceilings, beautifully decorated and tastefully well-stocked. The house was spacious, open and very cozy with the most comfortable couch to snuggle up to near a large wood burning fireplace. The bedroom was also spacious with a very comfy bed and a luxurious bathroom with spa. It was a plus having an outdoors Hot Tub/Jacuzzi where we spent lots of time looking out onto Cathedral Rock and at nite gazing dreamily at the stars. The house is only 10-15 mins drive to the Sedona town center and only 5 mins up the road from Red Rock State Park Crossing/Cathedral Rock. A book is kept at both the house and studio with great recommendations of restaurants, shops, sightseeing, etc. Although Rachel was out of the country at the time, she was a great host and responded back very quickly. Overall, our stay was perfect in every way and we look forward to staying there again when back in the US.
