You must have a car to stay at this location.
Other Things to Note
The house is located in the panoramic region where there is no parking on the road.Therefore we permit a total of 2 cars at the property which can park on the driveway.
If you rent the entire property including the studio there is a max of 3 cars permitted.
The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood and respect for neighbors is paramount. No loud music after 10 pm.

We reserved this rental for a girls weekend in Sedona. The home is large, beautiful and the views are even more amazing! The home owner Rachel, was accommodating and provided air mattresses for our larger group which was very nice and allowed everyone their own sleeping space. With that said, if you are seeking a rental that allows for you to have guest visitors while staying there, be aware that this is NOT acceptable at this rental. We had planned to cook a nice dinner at the rental one night and wanted to invite a few more of our girlfriends over for the dinner. We were told that this could not happen and we should cancel our reservation, which would result in us losing 50% of the deposit (over $1000!). Luckily, with the help of an Airbnb case manager, we were able to come to a resolution allowing us to carry-out the dinner at the rental with all 15 girls as planned. Additionally, if you do have a larger group, you should also be aware that this rental only allows for 2 vehicles to be parked there at anytime. We had several girls that had to drive to Sedona separately due to various work schedules, kids etc. The limited parking rule meant most of the girls had to leave their vehicles in the Safeway parking lot, about a 15 minute drive from the property, during the entirety of our stay. Those who were able to park at the property were then responsible for shuttling girls and luggage back and forth. This was not a big deal once we were settled in, but was a huge inconvenience for unloading and loading up all of our things into the vehicles as we had to make several trips to Safeway and back. Finally, although a beautiful rental, there are several things that should be addressed by the owner not only for the benefit of future renters, but also to justify the high cost to rent this place. I believe some of these issues have already been mentioned in previous reviews, but here are a few things we ran into during our stay. • Hot Tub does not work. We followed the owners manual that was left for us to turn the hot tub on and adjust the temp. However, the water never heated up and we were unable to use the hot tub during our stay. This was probably the biggest disappointment because we rented this property specifically because it had a hot tub for us to use on the cold evenings in Sedona. • The fridge was leaking water all over the floor as well as inside on our food and drinks. • Almost all of the dining room chairs have one or more loose/broken legs. One of the girls actually had to get out a screw-driver and tighten up the chair leg because she felt that it was going to break when she sat on it. • The garden hose is...
This home is in the panoramic region of sedona.The positive aspect of the location is outstanding , unobstructed views. The less positive is that are not permitted to park on the roads in this region. The home listing specifies 8 guests and 2 cars for the main house [ 3 bedrooms ] and 10 guests / 3 cars if you rent the guest studio as well. You rented the main house [ 8 guests] and told me just prior to arrival that you had invited a further 7 guests to stay making a total of 15 ...and many more cars.If you had told me wen you made the inquiry i would have suggested you look for a larger home outside of the panoramic region. No one enjoys regulations but they are usually there for a good reason which benefits and considers the whole community as opposed to one group . The roads are narrow in our region and we are surrounded by beautiful tree's and wilderness...
There have been forest fires in the past and its crucial that fire trucks can have total access to the roads. I am very glad that you finally came forward with your intention to host many guests at the property. I feel its very important that you share your plans up front and much sooner rather than hide plans that breech regulations leading to fines and last minute upsets /surprises. So far as the hot tub- you have to turn the switch on that heats the (email hidden)me with freezer, turn the switch to on and no issues.Lastly , a 3 bedroom home for 8 in a residential area should not be assumed is fine to hold an event in without any inquiry. Some homes don't have insurance for large groups and this puts your guests at risk so its not a good idea to conceal plans until the last minute.
Beautiful scenery is the best way to remember this house in Sedona. The location is so perfect, nestled next to the Red Rock State Park, it has amazing views of the red rocks. The house is spacious enough for our two families plus grandparents. We cooked everyday and the kitchen is well-stocked. Star-gazing, watching the moon rise, and making smores on the fire-pit were the highlights from our memories of the house. Sedona has a lot to offer - we enjoyed our four days there but could have stayed much longer!
The reservation was canceled 24 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
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.
