Though you are looking thru power lines, the views are great. The home is convenient to the main shopping/dining district. The rest of the rental was a huge disappointment. It is a 1400 sq ft home with no central heat or A/C. When we arrived, the temps were warm. The only thing to cool the entire 1st floor was a small wall mount A/C in the corner of the living room (LR). It was barely adequate to eventually cool the LR area & never cooled the kitchen nook or kitchen. Each bedroom had a small window A/C which took hours to cool down the rooms. As our 3 week stay progressed, the temps cooled to the point that we needed heat. The heat did not work in the wall mounted unit in the LR so the only heat source for the entire 1st floor was a DuraFlame Unit - a free-standing decorative unit, not an adequate heat source. The only heat for the entire 2nd floor was a coil space heater, the type you put under your desk to warm your feet. We ran it for hours in the master brm & it did not heat the room. We called owner & she provided one additional coil heater & one space heater, which we carried around the house to the rooms we were occupying to get heat. No heat or A/C in either bathroom. Kitchen: no pot holders, only 2 of 4 burners worked on the stove, one worn dish towel, sink does not drain properly, & a continuous loud tapping noise from the fridge. Pins missing from shelf of free-standing pantry so you can’t store anything on that shelf or it collapses. Laundry: must go outside & down 13 steps to a storage area under the front deck. Light burned out so needed a flashlight ... laundry tub did not drain so washing machine did not drain. Had to wait 45 mins for laundry tub to drain, then run a drain/spin cycle, then wait for that water to drain from tub before you could do another load of wash. Owner was away & gave the wrong phone number for the alternate POC so had to live with this situation for 10 days! TV/ Roku: could not find Roku box .. she does not know how Roku works. No news, sports, etc stations. Master Brm: Mattress & Box spring are ~7” & bed is on risers .... mattress sags in middle ..... headboard screwed to wall & squeaks when you move around ..... General: only 2 lamps in LR & no light bulb in one lamp.... Stair Carpet is worn to matting in places .... molding missing along floor of bathroom .... framing around door mirror fell off ...... never told to leave keys in lockbox for mid-stay clean. rate as 0 stars
Where do I begin.....I will keep this short!! There was no pleasing this guest! I responded as soon as she text me and only gave her my Handyman's number which was correct, in case of emergency.....she never called him. I paid for 2 plumber visits...one for stopped drain in laundry room (due to tree root growing through line)which is located in storage area below but two years of hosting and no one has ever had an issue! Laundry room light switch by the door and lights up entire area. The stopped kitchen sink plumber said was due to food left in garbage disposal which is only a few months old.Paid him for nothing.
There are extra light bulbs in closet and dish towels&pot holders in same closet by fairly new refrigerator she says is clicking?? I have never had a refrig that didn't make some compressor noise. My sub zero talks!!
My heat and A/C works she just didn't turn it on. This house was built in early 1900's and is drafty and cabin like but I lived there with no real discomfort for 16 yrs and again have had it rented for two years with only negative remark being it's age. We blocked off most of Dec to replace deck and paint railings. The floor is all tile or laminate.....left old carpet on stairs for safety reasons. The mattresses are only one year old and again no other complaints.
A small piece of trim fell off mirror and we have glued it back on....that was earth shattering!! LR has three lights and due to the old architecture cannot have overhead lights. Cabinets in kitchen new.....one metal peg that holds shelf dropped to bottom of cabinet and I guess worked itself loose. I feel that I should pay her for a home inspection......this was not a vacation and she needs to stay at the Hyatt or the Hilton in the future because she expects very high end quality and wants to pay mid pricing!
I'm really sorry all she could see was power lines and not the breathtaking red rock view!!
7 day stay
So the house was ok for the price paid. It is obviously a work in progress, but everything you need is there and It is close to town.
The views were stunning, the location within walking distance of the main street, restaurants, and shops. There were trailheads nearby for access to hiking. The location was very quiet, the hot tub and decks expanded the living space and the owner was very quick to answer any questions. It was perfect for our needs!
Loved how close we were to the tours and the town of Sedona
This house is within walking distance of the town of Sedona and close to many of the tours. The views from the decks are awesome. There even is a hot tub on one of the decks. The house is perfect for either two couples or two singles who prefer their own bedrooms and bathrooms. There are two bedrooms upstairs with a bathroom (shower) upstairs and a bathroom downstairs with a tub/shower. There are WiFi and a Roku to watch Netflix or Amazon. The house was clean and fully equipped. The only difficulties we had was with the kitchen sink draining, which the owner told us would happen as it still needed to be fixed, and setting up the Amazon and Netflix on Roku.
Although it appears that the house is still going through renovations, it was clean and colorful. I would book this house again if I were to return to Sedona.
Great location with Sedona ecsentric spirit.
We had a great time here. Sedona in its best. Great location. The house is a little rough, but the owner is planning to make improvements. The view from the massive balconies, and outdoor spaces is wonderful. All the best tourist areas are minuets away, even walking distance. Just an elclectic beauty in every way. We will be back again.
