  • 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 (email hidden) 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.

  • House is beautiful, clean, comfortable and spacious with a fantastic view. We spent all our time while in the house on the very large balcony looking out over the hillside with a clear view of Cathedral Rock. Short drive to everywhere. Rachel was very responsive to all questions making the organizing of this getaway easy and painless.
    I fell in love with Sedona, will be back and will definitely consider renting the house again. This was a very memorable few days.

  • This is a lovely house to stay in if you are venturing to Sedona. The views are breathtaking and the location is perfect. The house itself is very comfortable and easily held all 8 of us. I would recommend this place to any larger group looking for a relaxing vacation!

  • The location, spaciousness and views of the home were wonderful. Rachel's mother, Lauren, greeted us and showed us around. I'd recommend only having 8 people, including the guest house, to be most comfortable since the one twin bed was reported to be uncomfortable by one of my friends. The other beds were great and we especially loved the decor of the guesthouse.

    It was disturbing to have the smoke detector go off in the guest house at 3:00 a.m. and we wished we could have found a spare battery instead of having to sleep on the sofa until morning. The dishwasher wasn't working, but will hopefully be replaced/repaired before the next guests. Rachel was responsive about getting a handyman out early the next morning.

    Overall though, we really enjoyed our stay there and loved the deck, hot tub and spaciousness of the home.

  • Came here for a girls weekend in late April. The house was beautiful -- overlooking Red Rock State Park. Gorgeous views from the back patios. The 9 of us had plenty of room between the house itself and the studio. Everyone had a place to sleep. The kitchen was huge and there was plenty of room for cooking big dinners. The weather was gorgeous, too! The house is a short drive to the heart of Sedona. We spent the weekend kayaking, going to a winery, exploring the town of Sedona, driving the Grand Canyon, and hiking. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The owner was always in close contact if we needed her and the house had all the amentities we needed. It was perfect for us and we had an amazing long weekend!

  • Wow! Breathtaking! This home was so thoughtfully furnished it felt like we were at home --- better than home! Nothing was left out. It is absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Location was perfect! I can't wait to come back!

  • Great views, quiet surroundings, short walk to trails and the creek!
    Warning if you stay here during a warm season - make sure to arrive at the house early to turn on the air condition, then leave for a meal and come back. It takes a long time to cool down the house. Took an overnight for our trip.The twin beds downstairs were uncomfortable, but the other beds were very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again - it IS beautiful. We thank Rachel for being available during our stay and helping us with anything we needed pertaining to the house.
