Our home offers the most spectacular views in all of Sedona.It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The home has recently been professionally furnished with the best of comfort and design. The colors take you into sunset and the view simply takes your breath away.

We are only 25 minutes from our wine growing region and the winery offer tours and tasting daily. Nearby towns of Jerome, Cottonwod, and Cornville offer tasting rooms and restaurants.
The village of Oak Creek offers public golfing, tennis, outlets malls and theaters.

West Sedona is the heart of the area. We are located near Airport Mesa, one of the 4 major vortex spots. Tlaquepaque is nearby, and offers some of the best galleries and shops. Hillside and Uptown are only minutes away.Boynton Canyon, Hononki and Palatki ruins are 15 minutes out a beautiful road.

This home offers a beautiful area for a small WEDDING. The owners are both ordained ministers and can write a ceremony and perform it in your own front yard, overlooking the red rocks.

They are both artists and much of their work can be seen in the home. Bob is a retired Fireman and Candace a retired Flight Attendant. They love beautiful things and have taken great care to make this your cozy home while in Sedona.The master bedroom is the dream room with a view!. The King size bed and mounds of pillows and comforters makes you want to curl up and stay in bed all day. The second bedroom hosts a queen bed and a soothing feeling of quiet relaxation. The newly landscaped yard is lovely with quiet spots to sit under trees and still see the red rocks. The bird life is sweet here. This is one of the original homestead ranch areas in Sedona and boasts some lovely old flora and fauna of the past. It used to be called Grasshopper Flats, as fisherman driving through the area from Jerome to Oak creek stopped here to catch grasshoppers for bait. They are gone now and ravens, hawks, jay, robins, finches, hummingbirds and an occasional bald eagle call this home. When you sit on the front deck and listen to the activity, you feel as if you are in a birds nest. We choose to call our Casa, Birch Nest. You feel you are in the air with them at your eye level.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could ask for. We even supplied an expresso machine for those that want that treat at home, rather than walking down the hill to one of several coffee houses. You will cook on gas. Being a good cook, people usually love gas. I know I do. The dining room has a Southwest set of 6 hand carved chairs and a large wood and tile table. This opens into the living area with fireplace, great art and furniture, and loads of Red Rocks views.

There is a two car garage that we like people to use. The driveway is rather steep and entering from the garage is easier to bring in groceries and luggage. If you have been hiking it is also a good place to remove your shoes. The floors are a wood laminate and tend to scratch if hard shoes are worn inside. Bring your slippers and cozy socks.
If you require maid service, let us know when booking so we can set it up. We require an upfront cleaning fee of $225 and a security deposit of $100 for incidental or credit card fees. The security deposit will be returned upon check out, after vacating the home. We also ask you to take out a $69.00 travelers insurance policy that is included in your rental quote.
Sedona does have rental requirements and ask for at least a months rent at a time. If you require a shorter time, contact us to discuss the possibility.
We live three streets away and will be here for you. We can help with your travel and sightseeing needs. Bob was a jeep driver in the Valley and will hire out to take you on a private tour.
We do ask you to pay with Echeck or a 3% booking fee will be applied to all credit card uses. Also, PLEASE download and FILL OUT the Rental agreement. VERY important to protect both parties, and to be certain we have info on all travelers in the home in the event of an emergency! Remember the Echeck method of payment if possible.
Sedona has a 30 day stay request. Please call us for rates and dates available @ 928 282-4174.
Thank you. Enjoy See you at the TOP!

We are both artists and much of our work can be viewed in the home. We are ordained ministers and can provide wedding or renewal of vow ceremonies, custom to your desires.

We have done many home exchanges and due to the success of letting someone in our home, decided to buy and remodel a view home that is dedicated to the visitor. We have lived in it for the past month, making certain every detail is how we would like a home experience to be. The views will take your breath away. The peace and serenity that surrounds the home is indeed special. We hate to leave it. There is a presence that can only be experienced by being there. It is beautifully furnished and includes every amenity you need to be in a home away from home. It is sophisticated, yet unpretentious. Comfortable and worldy. It is a perfect artist or writers retreat. Bob is from Tacoma, Washington. Candace was born in Missouri, graduated school in Honolulu, and called many ports her home in her 31 years as a flight attendant. They chose Arizona to retire and continue their love of hiking and the arts. We live two streets over from this property. We love West Sedona due to the proximity to everything that is offered here. We share a great deal of pride in the remodel of this home and its gardens. We spent 5 weeks, every day, working on making this home our Birch Nest.
