Why Florene Villane chose Sedona

It's Sedona. Who wouldn't want to be surrounded by beauty, art everywhere you glance, fresh air, lovely neighbors, great restaurants, hiking, golf, sunrises coming over the mountain, gorgeous sunsets, stars, stars, stars at night and if you are lucky, catch a full moon at the center of Cathedral Rock!

What makes this house unique

This Home is a Photographer's Dream

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly a photographer's dream. It is located in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Sedona, AZ, and sits directly in front of a majestic formation of red rocks known as Cathedral Rock. Every window in the front of the house has a view of this amazing formation that changes colors continuously as the sun moves across the sky. Two recliners in the living room look out a large picture window to an unobstructed view of Cathedral Rock. The home is immaculately maintained both inside and out. It is beautifully decorated with artwork everywhere you look. It is quiet and serene and feels like a little piece of Heaven on Earth. There are two large patios, one located in the front of the house and another, more private patio on the side of the house. These patios provide breath taking views of the surrounding area, including unobstructed views of Cathedral Rock. There are numerous hiking trails within minutes of the house. A short walk down the street will bring you to Crescent Moon Ranch and a beautiful trail along Oak Creek that runs all the way to Cathedral Rock. A short drive away is Red Rock State Park where you will find trails and scenery galore to enjoy and photograph. The outskirts of Sedona are less than 10 minutes away where you will find jeep tours, helicopter tours and ATV rentals. The owner and the property manager provide prompt and friendly customer service. This home will not disappoint you.

Beautiful home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and in a great location. We had our children with us and we could travel to downtown and surrounding areas very easily. It was a nice neighborhood with scenic views all around! Experiencing the natural wonders of the area was fantastic! I highly recommend this home for your next Sedona vista!!

Hikers' Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate enough to have had more than a few visits to Sedona, and have stayed in several different areas. For various reasons, Flo's house proved to be our favorite (and we have already booked a return visit in 2018.)

The location was perfect for us - slightly removed but mere minutes away from West Sedona conveniences. The sense of solitude was heavenly. Even in February, we looked forward to taking in the amazing stars over Cathedral Rock from the comfort of the patio. The coyote serenade was a nice touch. The views are as beautiful as described.

If hiking is a priority for you, the home affords access to miles of trails via trailhead that is about a block away.

The house itself is great. Comfortable, nicely appointed and homey.

We can't wait to return.

Highly Recommend This Beautiful Sedona VRBO

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this VRBO vacation home, our week was perfect. Beautiful newer home with one bedroom upstairs and one bedroom downstairs. The home is tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you need to have a comfortable and enjoyable week. LOVE the location, and all the beauty Sedona has to offer can be seen from this home both inside and out. Enjoy breathtaking views of Sedona's famous Cathedral Rock from all rooms and patios. There is a nearby creek to walk to and take a cool dip in. Town is a short drive with so much to do and see. We got up early and took various hikes and spent afternoons strolling through town, shopping, eating, taking trolley tours, visiting Indian ruins, and visiting art galleries. We ate out about half the time and cooked the rest, we met folks while we were hiking and they recommend Elote Cafe for dinner and The Coffee Pot for Breakfast, both were wonderful! The house is equipped with a crockpot so your not tied to the house if you want to go out and explore during the day. The owners are delightful and easy to work with. This was our first trip to Sedona, we hope to visit again soon, maybe in the winter with a light dusting of snow :) The King Family

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. Please come back during December or January. Absolutely mesmerizing with the snow on top of the red rocks. Snow only lasts a day or two. You will leave still with the "Sedona Glow" Thanks again Florene

Total and absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Only superlatives can properly describe this lovely, elegantly comfortable home. The owners obviously have settled for nothing less than perfection in furnishing the place, both inside and out. I had the good fortune to stay there for 5 weeks in June and July, 2016, and enjoyed every moment. My days would usually start with breakfast on the front patio, while the sun rose and the birds hopped and twittered in the hedges. Often I took a hike on one of the many trails which I could access without my needing to drive. And the hikes, just like the windows in the house and the veranda upstairs, all offered breathtaking views of magical Cathedral Rock. One of my fondest memories is of a thunderstorm over the Rock, when she was crowned in a diamond tiara of lightning. Some days I happily hung out at the house, reading in the comfortable chairs, cooking in the perfectly appointed kitchen, drinking in the light show on Cathedral Rock as the sun moved across the sky and the clouds did their constant shape-shifting dance. Such peace and tranquility! My favorite evening activity was to sit on the veranda, sip something cool and watch the colors of the Rock cycle thru a breathtaking gamut of oranges and reds. The nightly silence was only broken by the drum role of thunder or perhaps the songs of the local coyote chorus. Other days I drove into "town," or West Sedona, which offered everything that I needed-two movie theaters; two gyms; an award-winning public library which offered classes and concerts; several yoga studios, (7 Centers is my favorite); 4 grocery stores; art galleries and mystical Sedona specialty shops galore; and amenities such as a computer repair clinic and a friendly, knowledgeable mechanic. All of this was less than 10 minutes by car. No two trips were the same, set as they were against the backdrop of the ever changing light on Sedona's justly famous red rocks. An added treat was the helpfulness and easy accessibility of the management company for a few minor problem that came up. And the perfect finishing touch was the friendliness and attentiveness of Florene, the owner, who shared ideas on things to do that were off the beaten path and regaled me with stories of native American traditions relevant to the house and area. All in all, I felt that I was staying in the home of a kind, generous friend; I hope to return to 25 Zane Gray Lane for many years to come.

Spectacular views, comfortable & wonderful home, superb location

  • 5 of 5

Spent the month of August 2015 at this great abode. Frankly it's difficult to imagine not completely enjoying a stay in this home. This lovely home is situated to take maximum advantage of the astounding landscape that surrounds it. The views are so spectacular that we could have virtually spent our entire stay staring out the windows & sitting on the terraces. But of course we didn't do that as the location is perfect for walking right out the door and taking wonderful hikes to and around Cathedral Rock and Oak Creek (great spot to cool off, wade, swim in the Summer). The home's location also provides ready access to all parts of Sedona, films, art, a tremendous public library, beautiful community pool and some genuinely great restaurants for those who enjoy

eating out. Inside the home is extremely comfortable, well equipped, very relaxed and relaxing. We spent several hot days days simply reading, watching DVDs, and always glancing out windows at the mesmorizing view--completely content. Since our stay was in August it feels relevant to add that this great house has ample A/C and very comfortable beds--important for those of us with back problems. The owners are a pleasure to interact with in arranging a stay, very open, warm, and clearly have great taste as evidenced by their home's design & furnishing. One thing I found unusual in a positive way--their management company is also a pleasure to deal with. If there is any problem at all it is dealt with immediately. If any issue or question arises it is always clear exactly what to do to resolve it. Not that there is likely to be any problem as this residence is thoughtfully equipped--for example several flashlights, comforting during magnificent summer thunderstorms. Numerous delightful spots to sit outside on either first floor patios or the upper bedroom's massive deck. Another bonus--great neighbors, friendly folks. It's great fun to stop and talk when out for a walk. Genuinely exceeded all of my expectations even though I had of course viewed the photos on the VRBO site. For example the night sky in this location is unbelievably gorgeous--due to a relative lack of night-time light pollution and clean air the nightly spectacle is quite moving. There is simply so much beauty in, at and around this residence. Seriously hope to return to this home and feel honored that the owners chose to share it with us.
