              Year Purchased: 2005

              About: The 'House of the Smiling Sun' is my families private vacation retreat in Sedona.it is a very unique vacation home and a pleasure to manage and offer to guests as their 'home away from home' whilst visiting Sedona. I was raised in Europe and have been fortunate to travel extensively .I can truly say that Sedona is one of the most beautiful and stunning places in the world.

              Why Sedona:
              My family chose this vacation home because of it's stunning location, close proximity to town and of course it's breathtaking views.We love the stunning natural surroundings, peaceful neighborhood and it's situation in a low light zone- which provides night time skies and star visibility an amazing experience.

              The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
              Everything is unique about our vacation home.Amongst my favorites are the relaxing evenings with friends soaking in Hotspa under the stars, walking down to the canyon and sunbathing on the rocks, dining with my family on our deck enjoying the spectacular views, sitting around the fireplace in the winter and watching movies and spending time in uptown Sedona where there are fabulous restaurants and events.
