This comfortable, contemporary home is located in one of Sedona's most stunningly beautiful areas. If you're looking for quiet solitude, you'll find it here -- yet all the restaurants and services of Sedona are just a three-mile drive away. A fifteen-minute walk takes you to Oak Creek, and a small hike directly behind the house puts you atop of a 225-foot red rock bluff where you'll capture unbelievable views.
This contemporary home has simple elegance with excellent flow, having been designed in consultation with feng shui master Valmai Howe Elkins. Completed in 2006, it won the 'People's Choice' for best house on the Sedona Art and Architecture Tour that year.
The entire house has great natural light, no matter what time of year you stay. Winter sunlight streams through southern windows, and summer patios are shaded and cool with natural ventilation. This is a green passive solar home built with ultra low voc materials, and also features ample conventional heating/cooling systems.
Downstairs you'll enjoy an open plan living room/dining room with 12-foot high ceilings and comfortable leather sofas. A gorgeous modern kitchen features all stainless steel appliances and stone countertops, as well as a separate wine bar. Throughout this main living area you'll find engineered maple hardwood floors, hand-made wool rugs, Italian leather sofas and HD satellite video. There's also a guest room downstairs with full bath, perfect for the visitor who requires additional privacy.
Upstairs you'll have your pick of two large master suites. Each comes with its own large deck, queen size bed, full bathroom and walk-in closet. The western suite has its own private entrance, small kitchenette, and large Roman style soaking tub. The eastern suite includes a very private outdoor bathtub with full view of the red rock bluff, which is part of the unique property.

Hi, my name is Glendon and I have been a resident of Sedona for 15 years. Having lived in many places in my life, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and internationally, I can truly say that Sedona is a unique and magical place. So when I discovered this amazing property, complete with its own gigantic red rock, I knew this was the place to build my dream house. I currently live next door to the house with my two chocolate labradors, Charlie and Coko. I am an artist specializing in creating high-end functional art and sculptures. I enjoy hiking and running the trails in and around Sedona.
Glendon Good purchased this house in 2006
Sedona is an astonishingly beautiful place to be. Living here is akin to camping in nature where wildlife and nature abound, yet with most of the amenities I enjoy such as good restaurants, supermarkets and coffee houses. Sedona is truly a spectacular place.
This property is located in a special area of Sedona along Red Rock Loop Road. Originally this was one of the first areas to be homesteaded and farmed in the 1800's. Today there is a delightful mix of luxury homes among farms and working ranches. Nearby, the creek rolls through the red rocks providing a rich contrast between the lush green pastures and dramatic red rocks. Excellent hiking trails out the door take you to high ridgetops with views of Cathedral Rock, Thunder Mountain and the vast National forest. Cool off with a dip in the creek and explore its natural beauty.
This house is incredible.
Glendon has designed this house so that from every angle the beautiful setting is visible from inside. Thoughtful touches like skylights, glass tiles and magnificent picture windows bring the canyon scenery inside for all to enjoy.
We stayed for 6 days and found the house to be very comfortable. The two master bedrooms upstairs are equally desirable - we couldn't decide which might be the master suite! The lower bedroom is smaller, but the bathroom is thoughtfully designed and quite luxurious!
We loved the decks around the house. They give extended space to relax and are set with loungers and tables ... and even a hammock. The grill on the lower deck is such a luxury, and is large enough to cater to a full dinner for many people!!
My husband and son enjoyed exploring the canyon and scaled several of the lower cliff faces with ease.
We particularly loved that previous visitors had left supplies they didn't entirely use, and we were grateful to find spices, salad dressing, oils, coffee filters, etc in the kitchen. We paid it forward by leaving soda, bottled water and ground coffee for the next guests.
AT&T cellphones will not receive or make calls from the house, and we only received limited text messages. The wifi was very convenient since it's not always possible to completely disengage when you own your own business !! It is very dark at night (a beautiful thing) and star-gazing is simply divine.
Oddly, the thing that the children talk most about are the two miniature donkeys across the street !! Visitors should absolutely have visiting privileges !
we spent our spring break here and it was amazing! the views from inside and outside were picturesque!!! the house was impeccably designed & furnished with one of a kind pieces!!!! we will be back for sure:)
WOW, this description does not do this home justice! We just returned from our family spring break vacation. The home is fully stalked, very clean and well appointed. We found ourselves looking forward to our return every evening so we could cook dinner and enjoy the serene surroundings of Glendon's home. The dogs Cocoa and Charlie were also very warm and welcoming ;-) we missed our dogs so it was nice to have them greet us on our arrival. Glendon was a great host and goes out of his way to make the stay enjoyable and smooth.
There is great hiking out the door from this home, amenities are close enough to be convenient, but far enough to enjoy the serenity and be away from the crowds. We can't wait to return. Thanks to Glendon, Cocoa and Charlie for a great spring break.
The Cliff House is a beautiful property inside and out. Perched beneath dramatic red-rocks with a quintessential view of Sedona's backcountry, this was an ideal retreat for our stay in the area. The house was a 15-20 minute drive to the town center (restaurants, grocery stores, etc), but that distance provided quiet and star-filled night skies as a result. Glendon ensured the property was clean and well-maintained for our arrival. Our two-year-old daughter loved his two chocolate Labradors and koi pond! Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. Definitely the place to stay in Sedona.
We were 3 couples (55+) from Calif. coming to Sedona for a week of mtn. biking and hiking. Like the 2 previous reviews of The Cliff House, we were in awe of the beauty, spaciousness, amenities, surroundings and comfortableness of this home. Greeted by Coko and Buddy (cutest well behaved brown labs you'll ever meet) Glendon the builder/owner was there to welcome us and show us around. Our stay for 5 days was too short and we believe it was because of this house and the beauty of it all. There was nothing we wanted for and never once ventured out for a meal. The decks with the views were just to spectacular to leave. We even cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner! Glendon was very helpful w/ our questions of trails and local information. We look forward to coming back again soon and would not consider any place else to stay.
Epic, awesome, magical. The Cliff house residence in my opinion is the only place to stay in Sedona. From the location right down to the top quality appliances, this home is beyond belief. The Cliff house made our visit spectacular, transcending our lodging experience from merely a place to lay our heads to the star of the show.
When you make your first turn onto Upper Red Rock Loop Road you know you're in a special place, as you wind down the short drive to the gated Cliff house driveway the scenic vistas reveal themselves like aces in a poker hand. You've won the lottery! If you want to experience an energy vortex in Sedona, one is just moments away. Everything you came to Sedona for is right within your grasp from the Cliff house, sunrise, sunsets, hiking, oak creek, red rocks, energy vortexes, star gazing, the history of the surrounding area. It's all right here. This is a 5 Star Rental! The three bedrooms, bathrooms & kitchen are all nicely appointed, there is a nice stereo system that allows you to plug your ipod or watch the large flat screen with surround sound. The living room and dining room are wonderfully lit with natural sunlight between two massive sliding windows that allow you to not only look at the landscape but live "in" the landscape while inside. I found the property so magnificently designed that as the conditions change during the day & night, all the outdoor spaces and four different decks allow you a place to not only stay outside comfortably, but will treat you to some very appealing perspectives. I highly recommend you take advantage of all of them. These are not places built to fill space, but conversely, are specifically designed to help you experience why you came to Sedona.
The interactions with the owner & transaction went very smoothly. After our arrival and initial walk through including meeting Charlie and Coko the two very well behaved chocolate labs, it became "our" house and it felt like it!
As you can tell, we absolutely loved the place and highly recommend it. After driving around for a couple of days "searching for Sedona", we finally found it right next to our flip flops one evening while watching a sunset from the deck & wondering how many we had missed while waiting for a table with a "view". The next morning (after coffee on the deck of course), we proceeded down to Whole Foods and Basha's (the "locals" super markets) stocked up and never left the Red Rock loop area again...
This contemporary home is located in an exquisite rural setting 3 miles from downtown Sedona. It is a quiet location where the sounds of birds are often the loudest things heard. If you enjoy the outdoors, hiking, bicycling, running and breathing in the natural beauty, then you will likely enjoy this special place.
