"Kokopelli" is a guest studio perched on the edge of a canyon surrounded by the finest views that Sedona has to offer. The views are so outstanding they will literally take your breath away.
From your own private deck you will see the full panorama of red rocks including Cathedral Rock [ the second most photographed monument outside of the Grand Canyon], Seven Sisters, The mongolian Rim and right next to the studio is the
beautiful Pyramid Rock.
The natural light from morning to night will reveal the most amazing colors and beauty of these natural stunning rock formations which you can view 24/ 7 through the large glass sliding doors leading on to the studio deck.
This self contained guest studio with its own private enterance has a california king sized bed with a comfortable brand new memory foam mattress.You will definately get wonderful deep sleeps here!.
On the deck itself there is a large gazebo with curtains that enclose the structure for total cosiness and (website hidden) is like having your own outdoor living room. There is also a hammock and papason chairs with large fluffy cushions - the perfect place to read and relax.
You will enjoy sitting on the deck even during the rainy season and not get wet at all whilst being able to watch the changing colors of the skies and mountains.
The studio has a bathroom and custom red rock shower.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a washer, dryer, dish washer,
fridge. There is not a full sized stove but rather a 3 unit burner top for cooking and a counter top baking/toasting unit.
The guest home is perfect for 1 or 2 people that want a retreat surrounded by rural scenes and panoramic views in a quiet , tranquil neighbourhood with easy access to town.
This is a unique place to stay in sedona because of it's peaceful, quiet location and it's views.
Town is about 10 to 15 minutes drive away so you would definately need a car to stay at this (email hidden)w Frontiers, safeway and Basha's grocery stores are easily accessible in town. There are also wonderful hiking trails in this area.
We are located just a few minutes drive to The National Red Rock State park and Red Rock crossing.
This guest studio is situated next to our main large house but is completely self contained. It is often rented as a 4th bedroom for larger guest groups using the main house .But when JUST the main house is rented- kokopelli studio can be rented seperately. However, when the main house is occupied the hotspa cannot be used for privacy reasons.
Please check out the new photographs that airbnb took recently.
I have also posted photo's of many wonderful and exciting adventures and places to go in sedona and in the local area.
Interaction with Guests
Some guests like a lot of interaction and some like total privacy - i tend to go with the flow and take the lead from the guests.
This is a quiet, tranquil neighborhood in the panoramic region of sedona. Here you will experience nature's marvel's- brilliant sunsets, sunrises and unobstructed views of cathedral rock,
moglian rim, Pyramid and 7 sisters rocks.
Located in the zero light zone, you will enjoy shiny bright stars at night and the sounds of crickets.
We are located as close as you can get to the Red Rock National State park which is a stunning area of natural awesome beauty. There is no public transport from this area. By car you can get to town in 10 minutes.
A car is an absolute must .
This guest studio is in a quiet neighborhood and therefore it is a good selection for a quiet retreat type (email hidden)rfect for those that want to rest, relax,read,hike and star gaze.
We have a simple house rule leaflet in the guest studio.
Rachel was a very sweet and accommodating host. We have zero complaints about this studio. Clean. Stocked well. Plenty of supplies. My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the private balcony view of the Red Rocks. Great for any photographer looking to snatch some nice landscape shots. We really got some jaw dropping photos of the stars. Also if you're really into hiking, you can literally get on a path right behind the house which was kind of awesome. It's in such an interesting location and only 10 minutes from town. Overall, we feel like we made a solid decision coming here. We're already planning on visiting again in the near future.
rachel made us feel very welcome. the listing was accurate. the location was ideal. the studio has a beautiful view of the west side of cathedral rock from the porch. it was less than 1 mile from red rock state park which has a number of great hikes. it was a quiet neighborhood and downtown sedona was just a short drive away.
My boyfriend and I came to Sedona for a mini vaca, some golf and a massage trianong. We were looking to stay somewhere a little off the beaten path away from the resorts and hotels. Kokipelli studio was PERFECT for our needs! Beautiful view, spacious room with all the needed ammenities and a bit outside of the touristy hustle and bustle of upper Sedona. Since there was no one in the main house during our stay, we were able to use the hot tub outside too! Rachel was extremely prompt with her responses to all of our quesions an very thorough with all instructions for what we needed to know as visitors. (This was our first AirBnB experience, and it went pretty smoothly!) As I mentioned, we didn't have anyone in the main house, but with the curtains on the patio we would have had plenty of privacy if we needed it. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Rachel!
Not good. We booked for three nights and left after one, happily eating two nights rent just to be gone. We noticed the toilet was leaking upon check in. Left Rachel a voicemail and also sent her an email telling her about the toilet, and by the next morning we still had not heard back from her.
The studio has a big fan to the outside - basically like having a permanently open window in the wall right next to the bed. So, the main house guests that use the hot tub sound super loud - we had to listen to them for hours. It's not their fault, it's a stupid design.
The bed is some type of platform that creaks and squeaks with EVERY move. I sleep through everything and could not sleep over the noise from the bed.
Lastly, we got up in the morning and the bathroom smelled like a latrine since the toilet was still leaking. At that time, we heard more dripping and realized the bathroom sink was leaking, too. Two leaking fixtures (one stinky) and no return call or email from Rachel, we decided to cut our losses then and there. We left after less than 12 hours.
It's clear the studio is an afterthought of the main house. It looks like the dishwasher and/or the washing machine leaked as the flooring in that area is buckled and separated. The electrical outlet in the bathroom has no cover. The shower control is broken. Seems more like a cheap dorm room than anything else.
Thank you for your feedback. The plumbing issue was fixed in 24 hrs- fastest i could get it addressed.Sorry the a/c unit and bed caused noise.
I will definitely look into this and make the necessary improvements so that future guests do not experience the same issue.
If you are looking for an affordable, clean and convenient place to stay the studio is a great option. If your looking for more than a place to sleep I would look elsewhere.
Clean and spacious.
Easy to get to and easy to reserve.
The bathroom is fully stocked
Unit has a laundry machine and dryer
After a 6 hour drive from New Mexico, arriving at 5pm (check in time), all we wanted to do was sit on the deck and enjoy the views and sunset with a bottle of wine. After showering, 20 minutes before sunset, we found that there was no bottle opener. Personally, I enjoy staying at Airbnb homes so that I can enjoy the comforts of home while traveling and cook my meals rather than eating out. I was aware that there was only a hot plate to cook on but I wasn’t expecting there to be one tiny pot and skillet. I had to boil pasta in batches.
Internet- was not working when we arrived. My husband works while traveling so its very important for us to have email access. I emailed Rachel and was told to knock on the main house doors to have them reset the router they were not home so I asked her to send them an email. I woke up the next morning with a new password slipped under my door. If this is what they call internet they might as well not have any at all, you can’t even access email. Rachel never bothered messaging to see if the situation was resolved.
The views are beautiful but not quite as depicted on airbnb- unless you zoom in and crop out the houses nearby.
All of these cons are easily resolvable by the host and hopefully the next guests will have a better experience than we did.
