About the property

Sedona Spice ... is Eye Candy looking out AND looking in! This Amazing Getaway is centered within full view of the amphitheater of cathedral rocks that IS Sedona!

Our amazing location places you so advantageously, you may feel in resonant harmony with all its artistic, spiritual, adventure filled, and spectacular surroundings. The area is renowned for not only for the artistry of it's inhabitants but for its energy, reputed to bring you a feeling of great peace, centering, and well being.

Spicy Cinnamon Reds adorn this upscale Home Away from Home, a fully equipped top floor-Top View Vibrant cottage which has already inspired twenty-five 5-Star REVIEWS on VBRO.

This is the top floor of a large building which also houses the caretaker in a separate lower building. During your stay you will hear not a peep because the floors/ceilings are double-slung sound-deadening drywall.

Located in Uptown Sedona - at the entrance to Oak Creek Canyon, 95 miles north of Phoenix, 28 miles to Flagstaff, 100 miles to Grand Canyon, and 3 precious miles upwind of dusty, trafficky West Sedona, Sedona Spice boasts new central heating & air conditioning. Please sample the varied award winning Restaurants and Cantinas, some withing walking distance!

We have decided NOT to charge you for the cleaning that will be required upon your departure, leaving you free to explore, pamper yourself, shop the special artisan galleries or simply sight see is nestled in a quiet neighborhood off the beaten path -- restored southwestern home.

Points to remember:

Unobstructed views through 4 big windows in living room.

You can walk to restaurants, Hyatt Resort, shopping, even mountain trailheads!

Absolutely private and quiet. Easy access.

Place your favorite scented candle in our GIANT fireplace with custom slate chimney for added romantic glow, or when visiting in winter & fall, brighten your days with the plentiful firewood which is always complimentary.

Enjoy meals outside on the long deck after grilling your grass-fed steaks on the propane-fired BBQ, provided just for YOU!

About David Congleton

I retired to Sedona in 2004, after renting here 8 times! I know the area inside & out, and purchased this home for something to do and for retirement income. We try to keep the rates reasonable and consider this to be a great value, with privacy, centrality, absence of traffic or noise, off the beaten path yet within blocks of all the activity you could want.

And if you don't know, Sedona is considered a hiker's & mountain bikers' paradise. And...a singular destination for spirituality seekers everywhere. [Be sure to visit Sedona Creative Life Center on Shnebly Road].

David Congleton purchased this cottage in 2011

Why David Congleton chose Sedona

We have installed all new windows, floors, carpets, furnishings, beds --- all within the past five years. When you walk in, it should feel, well .... new!

Everything works ... and if it doesn't we fix it!

The whole place still has a 'new' feeling that is palpable. And very artsy - not a sterile rental....much of the art displayed was painted or carved by myself or my partner, Allison.

you will feel like you are in a home... away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

If you prefer a southwestern 'homey' stay, and golf resorts are not your thing, this is the place for you ... colorful, well appointed, comfortable & inspiring.

Decorated & Maintained by an Artist!

First time VRBO users! AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

Hi, this was our first experience of booking a vacation useing VRBO! We do admit it was an awesome experience! Everything from start to finish went flawlessly. The place we stayed, Sedona Spice was awesome, the views, the owner, the cleanliness and the location, couldn't have been any better. Even the weather was just about perfect for that time of year. We loved everything about the place, a great plus was the fullwall fireplace with an endless supply of chopped wood, it was awesome, fire every night! Can't say enough good things about our stay there, other than we'll be back!!! Sincerely Rod H. & Linda L. Thanks again David C.

Owner's Response: Geez Linda!! We did not hear a peep from you two the whole time you were there, and then this!! Thank you for your words and for taking such good care of the place. You mention our "Cleanliness" and that is something we pride ourselves on, but you and Rod were so clean I asked the housekeeper for a discount! Nobody ever left the fireplace clean before -- not since 2012 when we got on vrbo. Of course you did exaggerate a little -- the fireplace is not "full wall" it is only eight feet wide and eight feet high. And we don't have an "endless" supply of chopped wood -- it is only one cord, high mountain oak, and I enjoy splitting some of it into kindling with my maul. I so love a real wood fire, and I have noticed that most men are pyromaniacs to one degree or another, and that big fireplace with slate facia is one big reason I bought that house. In secret, you confided that the coffee maker was too slow. So... I brought it home and used it and you were right -- we have ordered a BonaVita, a high-tech beauty that pre-heats the coffee grounds and then steam-brews the best 10 cups of java you've ever had -- in about 3.5 minutes!! Expensive but worth it. See there? Your honesty leads to paying it forward for others.... thanks again Linda.

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Sedona Spice is simply amazing because of the indescribable living room views, the spotless and well appointed home along with the convenience of walking to restaurants and shopping.

The amenities were plentiful

My husband and I stayed there for two weeks and could not have been happier.

Sedona is such a magical, spiritual place and we were able to experience it just by looking out the living room windows or sitting out on the deck.

Our friends and family are really getting tired of listening to us talk about what a wonderful time we had and can't thank you enough, Dave, for such a memorable vacation.

We definitely have to come back!

Sweet Sedona Spice

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Sedona Spice and it couldn't have been a better choice for us during our stay in Sedona. We would plan our adventure each day with coffee on the spacious deck, looking out at the amazing view. We enjoyed returning to the deck after a day of hiking in the beautiful canyons that Sedona is so famous for. We rarely left Sedona Spice in the evening as it was so comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed making our own dinners - no need to fight the spring break dinner crowds in town!! We had a great time and we were sad to leave but have great memories. I see Sedona Spice in our future!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Marie, for that great summary of your stay.... you made good use of those walking sticks & I would like to see the pictures you took on your hikes... it's kind of funny that you were too content to go out in the evening, but you did accidentally pick the week when all the kids are out of school .... please come back and try us in January or May! Blessings

Amazing views, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Sedona Spice is a wonderful place to stay! We spent three weeks in March here and had a great time. First there is the view from the living room windows - it's there in the morning when the sun comes up and as the light changes throughout the day, the play of color on the rocks is unbelievable. My favorite time was sunset; Reid's was late afternoon; but it's beautiful all day long.

The house itself, from the couches to the bed, is comfy and relaxing. Having the laundry facilities just across the breezeway is convenient, at least at this time of year. The location of the house is also a plus, as you can avoid most of the traffic of Sedona when you are driving from the south by turning left onto Forest and driving up the hill into the neighborhood, bypassing all those cars. This location, set above the town, makes the house a quiet place to stay. In addition, whenever we had a question, Dave was more than willing to help! I don't think you can beat Sedona Spice if you are looking for a nice place in Sedona to enjoy what the area has to offer!

Owner's Response: Reid & Melissa, I truly believe that you folks are some of the nicest and most considerate that we have ever had.... you were so understanding about the little flap with the furnace [nothing works perfectly all the time, does it, even a new one], and your professional photography is superlative.... with your prior permission I have posted a few on our HomeAway site, crediting you of course.... I was perfectly willing to compensate you for such obvious talent, but I accept your generous gift and hope you will return next year for the same three weeks! Best Wishes, David

On its own, Sedona is well known around the world, considering its population is only around 11.000 residents.

The city has an image as a mystical & spiritual red rock tourist community; a popular destination for hikers, vacationers, artists, yogi's, and those seeking health and healing.

Now Sedona is emergin as a culinary destination thanks to the Hudson, Mariposa, Creekside and other delights.

Uptown Sedona is closest to the red rocks & hogs the best views... stunning vistas and cathedral-like mountains, nearby. The downside is that it is a 10-minute drive to groceries and drugstores.

Sedona Spice is located in the very heart of the excitement, and yet you will find it to be quiet and out of the way. No noisy traffic and nobody parking in your front yard. Come and See!!
