Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Oak Creek Canyon - Oak Creek Sedona Banjo Bill

2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage just a few steps away from the Oak Creek

Your special getaway will begin as soon as you turn off the beautiful and scenic Highway 89A and cross the rustic little bridge over Oak Creek. Families are often seen relaxing, fishing and enjoying the water when the weather is warm. What can be more restful than a babbling creek!

The first thing you will notice, as you drive through the winding streets and park at the house, is the extreme quiet of the lush green neighborhood and the chorus of the birds.

A bench awaits you on the front porch. This comfortable two-bedroom, two-bath escape has a large, modern kitchen with a dining table for six near the front window, as well as a bar with three stools. Rich dark granite was selected for kitchen and bathroom countertops, and kitchen appliances are stainless steel. Cabinets are hardwood, and the entire home has beautiful wood floors. A washer and dryer are available in a closed area near the kitchen.

The cozy living room has a welcoming fireplace with a granite hearth, which matches the other granite in the home. A large, flat-screen TV, satellite, many DVD movies, and a cabinet full of games provide pleasant indoor entertainment. Furniture includes a sofa (with hide-a-bed) as well as an over-stuffed easy chair and large coffee table. A deck with a BBQ grill and table with four chairs adjoins the living room and extends the entertainment area. Breakfast and coffee will certainly be enjoyed here.

Behind the deck is a short walk through the lush green landscape, passing a large swing suspended from the trees. The trees are a mix of evergreen and deciduous, creating an especially stunning display of color in the fall. A short and easy walk leads to a path going directly down to the creek.

Creekside Oasis (formerly known as Creekside Cottage) has recently been purchased by new owners who have created a new VRBO account. This property has been listed on VRBO for close to 3 years and has over 30 reviews that were submitted by renters for this listing, with an OVERALL RATING OF 4.8 STARS! The listing has not changed, and the new ownership will continue to share this wonderful VRBO cottage on Oak Creek with you.

We now have Satellite TV and Internet!!!

Partial reviews are listed below:

Great location. Beautiful drive into town. Super soft beds. Cottage is much larger than it appears in pictures. Overall very peaceful vacation. Just what we needed. Thank you! K.A.R., Merrimack Valley, Mar ‘15 *****

The cottage was so peaceful. I enjoyed being so close to the creek, having the swing in the back yard, and having all the comforts of home in the cottage. The cottage was beautifully decorated and supplied most everything we needed. The beauty of the surroundings was the icing on the cake! Faye B, Phoenix AZ, Mar ’15 *****

My guests and I appreciated it being located just north of Sedona where we were able to hike and shop during the days and retreat to our cottage in the evenings. Although I arrived with a few guests, I’d feel comfortable and safe enough to stay there alone. I’d recommend this place without reservations. Nell, Houston TX, Mar. ‘15 *****

The fireplace was great for roasting marshmallows and playing card games in front of. Each morning we went for a hike down the creek, and up the hill, and saw the sunrise, which was amazing!! Given what we would have paid for a hotel and eating out in Sedona, this arrangement was MUCH better, since we ate healthy foods for each meal and all hung out together each evening, enjoying games and conversation…we will definitely be staying here again!! Laura W., Tucson AZ, Mar ’15 *****

One night we grilled out and marveled at the stars. The residential area is so quiet, and the cottage so nicely appointed, with roman blinds for privacy. I can’t think of anything I’d change, except wishing I could’ve stayed longer! Laura W., Hartford CT, Feb ’15 *****

Who could ask for more than a warm fireplace on a snowy day? Amy F., Jan ’15 *****

The home was completely redone, everything was very clean and convenient, being right on the creek was perfect, our kiddos loved the swing ;), all the neighbors were friendly and welcoming, the beds were super comfortable, they even had snacks waiting for us in the kitchen. Thank you! Can’t wait to come back! Scott B., Nov ‘14, *****

This had been my first VRBO rental and I was so pleased I could literally live there. Just a short distance from the town of Sedona. I would go back time and time again.

Cheryl, Oct ’14 *****

The creek is only steps away through the backyard, which includes a swing (!) and the neighbors were friendly as well. I appreciated the small touches like including shampoo, body wash, and hairdryers in the bathrooms. I would definitely stay here again! Jess, Scottsdale AZ, Sept ‘14 ****

You’re in easy reach of Oak Creek Canyon hikes and other attractions, and Sedona (the expensive, touristy part) is a 15-minute drive. Cruise on over to Oak Creek Village (south and east of Sedona proper) for a real treat—red rock buttes, canyons and bluffs will blow your mind (invest in a camera b/4 this trip). We made trips to Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, Williams, Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome and Prescott from this home base, so it really is conveniently located. Ron K., May ’14 *****

We enjoyed our stay at the Creekside Cottage very much. The place is cozy and clean—just like the pictures we saw on the Homeaway website. The surrounding area is tranquil and beautiful. Jacqui H., Apr ’14 *****

The TV/DVD is easy to use and there is plenty of floor space to stretch or do yoga if desired. The water is amazing – no chlorinated, fluoridated city water – it tastes delicious!! It’s located ½ way between Flagstaff and Sedona, so perfect for either location. Carola, Lake Arrowhead CA, Apr ’14 *****

The house and area were beautiful and the house was very clean with very comfy beds. The open and large layout made the house seem much bigger than it was. The kids loved the swing and the creek and the wood burning fire was awesome (bring s’mores). The variety of complimentary treats were a nice touch. We loved our time there and three days wasn’t nearly enough. If you are looking to unwind, relax, and get out of the rat race concrete jungle there is no better place than this Cottage. The Indian Village in Oak Creek had a great craft beer selection, market, and nice outside seating for lunch. Anonymous. Mar ’14 *****

The cabin was beautiful and just as advertised. It was our first VRBO and it won’t be our last. The men enjoyed making a fire and there was plenty of room to spread out.

Marianne W. Jan ’14 ****

Our favorite room was the gorgeous stone fireplace and comfy cozy couch! The chocolates on the pillows added a sweet touch and made the place feel warm and welcoming! This gorgeous cottage is perfect for a small family w children or a romantic getaway for a couple. The snow covered cottage was a nice perk we weren’t expecting!!! Great lil piece of heaven just 2 ½ hours from Phoenix!! We recommend this rental highly!!

Nicki R., Jan ‘14*****

The cabin was just as it was pictured on the website – nice kitchen, inviting living space, and cozy bedrooms. Felt like a true home away from home, and we’d love to return! Only issue we had was a total lack of cellphone reception, which I supposed isn’t too surprising given its location in a canyon. Kelly, Phoenix, Nov ‘13 ****

It was very nice and cozy. Well maintained. We would definitely come back and book with them again. Samantha T., Nov ’13, *****

We recommend the property. We also recommend hiking the West Fork, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Soldier’s Pass and Doe Mountain. For hikers, I also recommend the HikeHouse in Sedona. We enjoyed lunch at Indian Gardens in Sedona and breakfast at La Bellavia in Flagstaff. Jenn, Oakland County, MI, Oct ’13 *****

The kitchen is equipped as the description states and there are even a few items on the laundry area shelves such as a small crock pot & blender. We used the laundry, very convenient. The washer/dryer are large capacity and laundry soap was provided (nice touch). The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable with plenty of closet space. Bathrooms – body wash and shampoo/conditioner provided (nice touch). Living room is comfy with the fireplace. Windows face the back porch and blanket throws for chilly times are provided. We took many walks in the area and sat on the banks of the creek in the camp chairs we brought, very peaceful and relaxing. The tree swing was a HUGE hit. Used the patio and BBQ each day and it was just right. We all enjoyed seeing rainbow trout in the creek and one granddaughter even fished and caught four. The photos are realistic and a good representation. Sheila V., Phoenix, Oct ’13 *****

This is a clean cottage, nestled in a private community, away from the hustle and bustle of our technology driven life. We very much enjoyed our evenings and mornings at the cabin, exploring Sedona, nearby Cottonwood and Jerome (a must experience town) during the days. There is a great café down the road to Sedona called Indian Gardens (just before mile marker 378). Up the road is also Flagstaff Extreme, a high ropes course that takes 3-4 hours to complete and is less than $50 per person. Plenty to do and enjoy in this area, hiking, Slide Rock Park, Sedona, Flagstaff, or just sitting creekside. Off the Beaten Path, Las Vegas NV, Sept ’13. *****

Go to the trout farm approximately 9 miles south. Catch a few and cook on the grill provided. Wordman, Arizona, Aug ’13 ****

Cabin is even better than pictured. It is clear the owner truly cherishes his property. It was 112 degrees in Phoenix and 75 degrees at the cabin. Drive times are accurate, just 20 minutes south to Sedona and 20 north to Flagstaff. We will be back. Thanks Creekside Cottages for the beautiful weekend! Craig S., Mesa, Aug ’13 *****

About Brian Petersen

I grew up in Northern AZ and always had a passion for the red rocks of Sedona, whether it is playing in "the creek", hiking in the hills, running the trails or mountain biking the slickrock. I still live in Flagstaff, with my wife and 2 children, where I run a business and stay very busy raising a family. However, because of my passion for Sedona, my family calls me a bit obsessed about staying in Oak Creek Canyon and sharing it with others.

Brian Petersen purchased this house in 2015

Why Brian Petersen chose Sedona

In the summer of 2014, my wife and I rented a place in uptown Sedona and the dream started at that time to purchase a place in Sedona. My original thoughts were to look in either the Village of Oak Creek (VOC) or in West Sedona, but my wife said "we should look in Oak Creek Canyon to really experience Sedona." We started to look in all 3 areas for a piece of property. Some of the first houses we saw were in The Canyon and, from that time on, we knew that we had to purchase a piece of property on the creek. I knew we were in "trouble" on this house when our realtor sent us the pictures of the house. When we drove up to the cottage the first time, my instincts were correct - this is a gorgeous place. From the towering hills on the east and the west, the cute walkway up to the house, the way the house was remodeled, and then the tropical backyard that leads directly to the creek. Come experience The Canyon!

What makes this house unique

The drive through Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon must be one of the most scenic roads in AZ. As you approach the turnoff to our cottage, you cross a bridge with Oak Creek running beneath it and then enter the quaint and quiet subdivision. Drive just a bit more and then you are there. Get out of your car and you are greeted with tall canyon walls on your east and your west and start to walk to the house. The house is striking as you walk in the front door with wood floors and granite countertops. Look a bit further and you'll find everything you need to escape from your troubles, but have all the comforts of home. The backyard is very tropical with berry bushes and other green plants that provide you a walkway to your own piece of heaven; the cool running waters of Oak Creek.

Beautiful and Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO rental. For once, the pictures are very accurate. What you see is what you get -- unlike most hotels and resorts that are so misleading! The owners were very responsive and answered any questions I had. The home is completely renovated and has very nice finishes. It was very clean and well stocked with anything you may need for your stay. You can't go wrong picking this rental in Sedona!

cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two of our lady friends spent four nights at this lovely cabin in the woods. We were totally pleased with this home and all that it had to offer. We especially appreciated the location (away from the busy parts of the town), the fully updated kitchen, the beds, the fireplace (which we used all four nights), all the books and games, the basket of goodies that was left by owners, and the back deck overlooking the woods and a wonderful and fun swing. We will have many fond memories of our visit to the "cabin in the woods".

Lovely & peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful setting & home. Neighbor's were very nice & drive into town beautiful during the day. 4:00 pm check in far too late out there. Entrance to neighborhood not lit & very difficult to find at night. Dangerous at night with no markers or lights.

Owner's Response: Susan, I am glad that you had a nice stay. I can't do anything about the lighting on the road, but will check to see if my cleaning team is out early enough to allow for check-in to be moved up a bit. The challenging part is the shorter days in the winter and if it snows to allow the plows to clear the road so they can get to the cottage safely. Thank you! Brian

Lovely cabin with everything we needed-

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely furnished cabin with everything you might need. Great location in very quiet neighborhood with short little walking trails steps away from the front door. My kids loved fishing for trout right down the street, and we loved the tranquility and seclusion (especially on a busy Labor Day weekend). We will definitely be back-

A nice place to be!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week here during August. We were pleased with this home the minute we walked in. It is very well equipped and nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed. We cooked in most of our meals. The king sized bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on the back deck after our daily excursions to The Grand Canyon, Walnut Canyon, and hikes in West Fork of Oak Creek and the Sedona area. We met some of the neighbors and they were very friendly. But they were also noisy at times with lawn equipment and fixing up their homes. You have to expect that though, I suppose. I was surprised at how busy the adjacent highway was. We liked being away from the town of Sedona, but it's close enough. Cell phone reception and internet connection are very poor here, but I didn't mind that. It's nice to get away from those things during a vacation. If you are the kind of person that needs to be constantly on your laptop or cellphone, you won't be happy here. This place is meant for you to slow down from the hustle and bustle of city life and just enjoy what mother nature has for you! We enjoyed staying here very much and would be pleased to stay here again. We will have happy memories of this place!

Awesome place to stay with all the amenities you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in Sedona and this property made the trip that much better! The home is beautiful inside with updated appliances. The location of the property is great because you are between Flagstaff and Sedona. My kids loved the swing in the backyard and would wake up every morning and pick a few black berries and strawberries from the garden. Overall really impressed with the home!!

We visited slide rock state park which is only a couple miles up the road and loved the hiking close by.
