About Mark

I'm a well traveled former (current) IT professional who has many interests and hobbies. I'm happy to tell you about Sedona as I have been here many years starting back as early as1984

Mark purchased this house in 1998

Why Mark chose Sedona

Sedona is one of the more beautiful places you can visit easily on the planet. I have been to many places, but when the opportunity arose to be part of Sedona, I didn't hesitate to become an owner.

What makes this house unique

My place is extremely centrally located and yet quiet. Many hikes within 5 minute drive or walking distance. There is also close proximity to shopping and nightlife, that does not interfere in any way with the quiet and serenity of my place. There is also the backyard wich includes a 30' covered patio, several sets of comfortable outdoor furniture and the adjoining 42' deck. The 8' water fall/feature pond allows for the soft melodic sound of moving water. There is also the BBQ, hot tub and walk in gas fire pit with seating for 6-8.

All comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mark for sharing your home with us! The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. After a day or hiking, travelling, site seeing, etc., it was great to come back and relax with a glass of wine in the hot tub. The landscaping is equally beautiful with fruit trees & grape vines. Our only suggestion would be to have a guest book in the home for others to include their comments and recommendations for restaurants, etc. We will definitely book again on our next trip to Sedona!

Home Review - Sedona Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The home was very comfortable and inviting. The location was perfect. Sedona is majestic. It serves as a much needed retreat for rejuvenation of the mind, body and soul. The neighbors were friendly and definitely a dog friendly neighborhood. We did have some issues with the house but contacted the owner and he responded adequately and issues were fixed. We are looking forward to going back.

Everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mark's home could not have been better! The location is great, set just far enough away from the uptown Sedona congestion, yet easy to get to all the amazing hiking trails. Airport Mesa is even within walking distance (tip: skip the paid "Airport sunset viewing lot", go to the mesa instead).

The house was even better than the pictures! Very spacious. We were a party of four, plus two dogs and had more than enough room. We loved spending time on the back deck in the evenings. Kitchen looks brand new and was perfectly equipped to make dinner, coffee, and grill.

This is truly a great value for the area, in my opinion. Would definitely recommend!

Very nice Sedona getaway

  • 4 of 5

What we like - Well located, well maintained, clean, has garage, 3 serviceable bedrooms, 2 baths, good appliances, comfortable, good location near airport road and quiet, owner responsive, nice area in backyard with hot tub sitting area and waterfall, A/C system works, and no nosey neighbours or landlord.

Why not 5 stars? A 5 star property in Sedona needs killer views, this doesn't have that. Of course you can just go for a walk. It does have a few quirks such as the hot tub needs a windscreen, the dishwasher is in an inconvenient location, there's not a good sound system, and the cooking equipment (like pans, pots, etc) should be gone through and updated. However, having rented several houses in Sedona over the years this is a solid place and appropriately priced. I would rent there again and recommend it heartily in this price range.

Owner's Response: Just to clarify, the dishwasher is in the kitchen, next to the sink, so I’m not sure how that is inconvenient. There is also a Sony theater system with bass, center channel and (2) front and (2) rear speakers - which works very well, so again I'm not sure what not good means. There is also an Ipod speaker - which can easily be heard in the backyard from the house. I also know there are plenty of pots and pans to go around and I have had great ones there in the past, but the problem is they get trashed – such as using the (flat) cover on the stove as a pot, using knives and forks in them and so on. As an owner, it is difficult as I continually buy new ones - though I have through the years. There are also good views which work for most people especially sitting in the hot tub, which you unfortunately happen to sit in on windy days. Yes Sedona does have wind!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Mark's house was great. It had everything we needed and was right in the middle of town. Convenient location, nice quiet neighborhood, great views. You are a one-minute drive to the Airport Vortex, which is great for a quick morning hike. The backyard was the best...large covered patio, fire pit, hot tub, and the relaxing waterfall. Mark was very helpful, providing lots of information regarding things to do in Sedona. He was also very helpful during our stay, easy to reach if we had any questions. We would definitely stay here again, and hope to do so again next fall.

Nice home great location

  • 4 of 5

This home is nice and has a great location.

My Wife and daughters arrived 15 minutes early just as the housekeeper was leaving and we waited until the 4pm arrival time to enter the home. The home is well decorated and had everything you need to make it your home for the week. The house has great views since it sits just below the airport. Upon arrival, we read over the notes the owner leaves for the guests, such as the Wi-Fi password, how to use the fire pit, and to let him know right away if there is any damage or if something is not working. When we first got into the home and unpacked, my wife (who is a clean freak) took a look at the washer and dryer to make sure it was clean before we needed to use it. What she found was mud caked inside the washing machine and dried mud covering the drum in the dryer and the lint screen missing. After spending about 2 hours cleaning the washer and dryer, I sent the owner a message via this site and told him what we have found and did not get a response from him until our week was over. Needless to say, we did not use the washer and dryer because we don't know if we got all the mud out and did not want to have clean muddy clothes. I really don't care that I had to spend 2 hours cleaning the machines, things happen. But, what I do not appreciate is the owner getting back to me almost two weeks after I informed him of the issue and blaming me for what we found upon arrival. He sent me a message saying he was there with the cleaning lady and the washer and dryer did not have mud in them and the lint trap was there just before we arrived and I should check with one of my guests to see if they took the lint screen. My family and I did not travel over 2,000 miles and pay $1,200 to wash muddy clothes and commandeer a lint trap. So, the reply I got from the owner is that he was going to keep $142 of my damage deposit to replace the lint trap and have a service tech clean the dryer exhaust because it posed a fire risk.

I liked the house and location, but I don't think I would stay there again because of this issue. The owner said he was there with the cleaning lady, but the cleaning lady we saw when we arrived was by herself. I guess I have learned my lesson on renting vacation homes. I will inspect the home upon arrival and take a video and pictures with a date/time stamp of any damage I find and sent it to the owner instead of being a nice guy and fixing/cleaning what I find.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you have taken exception to staying at my home. I have managed and taken care of guest requests for many years and this is only the 2nd time I have held back any security deposit. The only other one came from a guest who told me that their son had broken the lid on the toilet tank. Knowing that it is sometimes difficult to know which guest did what, I have often been in the situation where thinks are broken that go unnoticed until too late. Unfortunately that is part of doing business and also leaves the house in a slightly less desirable situation for the next guest. In this case, I was there that morning you arrived and did all the laundry myself the day before and morning of. There was no mud in the dryer and the lint screen was in place. The maid came after me and simply removed the last load from the dryer in addition to the regular cleaning. I often do this when there to allow the maid to deep clean some areas, do windows etc. I did not hear of any problem until you told me at the end of your stay and as my instruction sheets clearly state as the first item – please notify me if there are any problems, which you did not do. When the maid came back after your stay, she notified me immediately about the lint trap and we both agreed it was there after each of us had left. As I was there the morning of with lint trap and clean washer/dryer and the day you left that was gone, I can only make that one conclusion aside from some stranger coming in and stealing the lint trap – which is rather preposterous. The dryer was run without that and that did cause a fire hazard as I was told by repair people where lint had collected in dryer and vent. I pride myself on taking care of my home and providing an exceptional experience for my guests – as all of my other reviews will show. I have always been available and rectified situations as soon as humanly possible. I am otherwise sorry again for your experience, but if I had not been there personally the morning of your arrival, this would have just gone into the loss column.
