THOSE WHO LOVE TO HIKE AND BIKE, the local horse trail is only a block away. Hundreds of miles of single-track mountain biking, quick access is a few residential streets away. Bell Rock & Cathedral loop are the two most popular trails right in your back yard!

Beautiful place, access not so much

  • 3 of 5

We reserved and paid for property but, were unable to stay. If you have any mobility issues ask owner to send a picture of the entrance "steps" before booking. Beautiful and artistic but, not functional for my travel partner. Received partial refund of prepayment.

As described with an incredible view and ambiance

  • 5 of 5

The casita was perfect and the view and sunrises were spectacular. Located just outside Sedona proper it is great for travel to sights and trails. While there is no actual kitchen having a frig and microwave plus coffee machine it is easy to prepare breakfast and lunch if desired. The hostesses are very helpful and respond quickly. Highly recommend this amazing spot. Thank you Marlene and Bonnie for your attention to detail and your hospitality.

A clean quiet rental with a comfortable bed and terrifiic backyard scenery.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Casita North and found the accommodations to be very clean and comfortable for 2 people on the go. The backyard patio is very nice with superb scenery. Great for stargazing at night and super for relaxing during the day or after a long day of Sedona sightseeing.

The bed was comfortable and found we were sleeping soundly.

We did find it impossible to figure out how to use the TV. We tried to switch from Apple TV to live TV broadcast numerous times and the remote would not switch to that function. It would have been nice to have some basic instructions. I'm wondering if the remote was in need of new batteries. We aren't big TV viewers so we weren't upset about the glitch and we were very tired from our daytime sightseeing so the TV wouldn't have been on for long anyway.

I'm very happy that I found this property for rent...I would not hesitate to rent here again. It's so quiet and peaceful that you feel as though you are many miles from the busy Sedona downtown but in reality you are quite closeby.

Owner's Response: Thank you Peter and Susan for the nice review. We loved hosting you in the casita. In answer to the Apple TV .......the unit is not set up for live broadcast TV. Cable is not in our area and we experienced too many problems with satellite when we had it in the past. The area is so beautiful and like yourself our guests enjoy stargazing after a day of hiking or sightseeing. Again thank you for choosing Sedona ranch.

Very comfortable casita with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The casita was perfect for the two of us and our dogs. It's a studio but still had plenty of room for us. The shower is fantastic! We sat out on the patio every afternoon and enjoyed the view. I would definitely stay here again.

Very quite and private.

We were left alone. Keys were inside and we didn't have to check in. I loved that.

Beautiful artwork in room which was the Owners art.

Very nice overall.

About Marlene Imus / Bonnie Miller

Northern AZ resident for 25 years, the hiking and biking capital of Sedona is my life home. When I am not biking with my dogs, I am photographing weddings and creating fine art landscape portraits. I love beautiful surroundings, and spend time nurturing the grounds, covered in fruit trees, flowers, and ponds. My favorite travels take me to Bend, Oregon, Whistler Bike Park, Banff, Moab, and the summer trails of Colorado.

Marlene Imus / Bonnie Miller purchased this house in 2004

Why Marlene Imus / Bonnie Miller chose Sedona

VIEWS and PRIVACY, red rocks and expansive dark starry skies! Seclusion within a private horse ranch neighborhood, quiet, yet only 2 miles to conveniences. Close to I-17 for quick day trips to the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon, and Canyon De Chelly. Casita North (1) has a fire pit under the stars for calm evenings, and a BBQ on your back patio overlooking the expansive red rock views. The koi pond is situated in the wide open backyard and is easily accessible. July is peach picking and August is Fuyu persimmons and pomegranate picking from the 15 fruit trees that decorate the acre.

What makes this house unique

Horse boarding down the street with immediate trail access, amazing views, extremely private, convenient to shopping, restaurants and coffee shops. Pond and backyard oasis is lush and pristine. Day trips to Oak Creek, Flagstaff pines, Fossil Creek, Jerome, Williams, Payson. Winter activities include snow skiing, or sledding in Flagstaff, hiking and mountain biking. Camp Verde's Cliff Castle Casino 15 miles south.

Guestbook comments from the manager
