About the property

3 Bed House Overlooking the Creek in Oak Creek Canyon Surrounded with Mtn Views

The Orchard House - See and hear the pleasant calming sounds of Oak Creek & wind in the trees from an Eden like private canyon back yard with ivy & wild roses grown along the back fence. Canyon walls surround you, as Oak Creek runs year round. Retreat to this charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath ''cool'' canyon cabin with a deck overlooking the creek. This house is referred to as The Orchard House, due to the several varieties of apple, pears, and peach trees, with grape vines along southern fence line.

A wood-burning brick fireplace in great-room, a vintage replica stove in kitchen make for a great cabin-like setting. There is ample room inside & out for friends & family. A covered porch on both front & back patios compete for absolutely amazing views of mountains, creek, birds and stars! You will find that you will spend alot of time in the backyard - with the deck/seating area overlooking the creek (our favorite place), a rope swing, a porch swing, mature trees, 4 bird feeders, fire pit, two grills, Sonos speakers and lights strung throughout.

If you are here to rest, relax and enjoy the beauty of Sedona, then this is the place to be. You will find this house to be detailed with all of the necessary things to make your stay enjoyable. Lots of thought and attention to detail make this property desirable...3 very comfortable beds, plenty of cooking utensils, 3 different ways to make coffee, including a Keurig, comfy seating, fresh linens for beds and bathroooms. If you are headed to the creek, we have rafts, towels, cooler, and balls to make your trip fun. A perched game room/bunkhouse with a separate entrance is a fun place for kids or adults to hang out.

The agenda; stroll to the creek, enjoy the ebb & flow of life's simple pleasures, take on a hike in many of Oak Creek Canyon's forest trails or visit Slide Rock that is one mile up the road. The location is unique as you are a short drive (5 miles) back into uptown Sedona where the dining, shopping or spa-ing opportunities are endless. Try the famous pink jeep tour for a fun and educational experience! Or you can head up the 30 minute scenic route to Flagstaff on the newly renovated highway where there are ample opportunities for hiking, biking, shopping, dining or snow skiing to name a few.

About Tia Gunkel

We met in Phoenix many years ago, while my husband was going to school at Grand Canyon University. We currently live in Chandler, AZ, but I have always lived in Phoenix and my husband is from Oklahoma originally. We love Arizona, but the heat can be tough, thus the purchase of the Sedona home where we can cool off and get away!

Tia Gunkel purchased this house in 2017

Why Tia Gunkel chose Sedona Shadows

This property was a find of a lifetime for us, as we were vacationing in Oak Creek Canyon on our anniversary. Although we live in Chandler, AZ, we had not been to the area in quite some time and were blown away by the beauty and uniqueness of the area. It was everything we were looking for: running creek water that can be heard and seen, tall mountains that can be seen from all views, several variety of

trees, cool temperatures, and absolute tranquility. We weren't in the market for a second home, but couldn't resist this one when it was shown to us while on our vacation! The things we love about it the most is the peacefulness and absolute beauty that surrounds this property. The canyon mountains are all around us, with Oak Creek literally behind us, which can be seen and heard very well from our deck. The birds are always singing and flying through the trees, and the history of the 100 year old orchard trees. As for the home it is very simple and easy to relax in. It is an older home that we were excited to completely update and remodel. With the construction out of the way, we are ready to enjoy this home and property for a long time!

What makes this house unique

We just couldn't resist the way that this property made us feel. It is so different from where we live in Arizona. The beauty of the land and surroundings make you feel that there is nothing to worry about it. Because there is so much to see and look at, your worries are taken away. There is nothing better than sitting in the back yard on the deck staring at the rushing creek as it moves past you with the soothing sound of water and looking up at the beauty of the mountains and trees. As my dad says, "Nothing else matters when you are here. The overwhelming sense of peace takes all of your cares away".

Perfect Place Away from the Crowds

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property for it's location just north of Sedona and was perfect for our needs. It accommodated us four with plenty of room and every amenity we needed. The owners were very attentive and flexible. The interior is modern and the back yard is pure joy to relax in after a day of hiking. We even took a dip in Oak Creek to cool off one day! This is a great property to make your stay in Sedona magical. We can't wait to go back!

Best Oasis in Sedona!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate giving this rave review because I want to keep this secret to myself! Seriously. I use VRBO often and this is the best yet! The home is decorated beautifully, with extra detail to the amenities and care taken to make any renter and their family/guests feel at home. Our favorite part was the outdoor setting. Having such a beautiful, lush space where we could listen to the creek, enjoy the birds, have a relaxing fire and stargaze in the evenings was wonderful. Close access to some GREAT hikes and only 5 -8 min from the more busy part of town when we needed or wanted to head that way it was an excellent location. I highly recommend this property. If I return to Sedona—I’m definitely renting here again!

A relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent half of our spring break week at this home, and we enjoyed every minute. Our two children loved the yard, and the layout of the house was great for gathering. The home is decorated with great taste and simplicity. Traffic was a bit heavy in Sedona while we were there, but it still was not difficult to get north of uptown to the canyon where the Orchard House is. It was a very special and lovely place to be! Tia was very responsive and hospitable. We would absolutely recommend this property to others.

Cozy & convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to be able to stay in Tia's home in Oak Creek Canyon just outside of Sedona! Oak Creek allows you to feel as though you are not in the touristy areas of Sedona itself while still providing easy access to all the great local trails. (If you want to walk the tourist-shop filled "Sedona strip", don't worry - you're just minutes away!)

Because we were traveling with our 16-month-old daughter, we were looking specifically for a place that would offer a clean, comfortable indoor area; we were lucky to find this in a very beautiful outdoor setting as well! The home itself is attractive and stocked with all the amenities you might wish for. The backyard - with the deck/seating area overlooking the creek (my daughter's favorite place), a rope swing, a porch swing, a fire pit, a grill, and lights strung through the trees - was just icing on the cake! Had a great stay - couldn't've asked for a better place to stay on vacation...

Beautiful property- inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time renting through VRBO and, if all the properties are as nice as this one, it will not be the last. The attention to detail is excellent. Coffee bar in the morning, cozy bedrooms, beautiful backyard, warm throw blankets, lots of ideas for things to do, etc. We had a fabulous stay and we thank Tia very much for providing such a terrific experience.

So enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we expected. The pictures were so

helpful. It's decorated really cute. I'm just noticing in the picture

to the left that the fabulous clock wasn't there when it was taken. We loved it. We loved the old fashioned stove and it worked beautifully. The back yard is wonderful. Unfortunately it was so cold, windy and snowy we could only enjoy it from the inside. I would post a pic,

if I was able. My caption for the pic would be 'Magical'.

Thank you Tia. You were most helpful and hospitable. We would highly recommend!!
