About Maggie Cunningham

We purchased this home in 2010 as both a vacation home and an important asset to our lives. We come to the Village about 3 times a year to enjoy our home and make sure it is always in perfect condition for our guests. We are both Engineering professionals living in Orange County California and we love Arizona hospitality so very much!

Why Maggie Cunningham chose Sedona

We wanted a real home. Not a resort condo or an expensive mansion. Just a down-to-earth residential property with character. Our neighbors are awesome and we always have so much fun.

What makes this house unique

Our property has a very unique backyard landscape that was originally a custom designed by previous owners. We turned it into a desert theme adding stone and pebble accents. The very large, 70 year old mulberry tree offers lots of shading during summer. The birch trees on our side property are stunning yellow in the Autumn. Several months of the year, the monsoon weather in the afternoons cool the property and really bring out the spiritual, fresh scented side of Arizona.

Peaceful, charming home in view of the tops of the towering Red Rocks

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, well appointed home about 6 miles outside the hustle and bustle of town.

We loved the backyard - beautiful shade trees and a network of natural walkways and bridges to mimic the paths and trails through the Red Rocks.

We enjoyed conversation and our morning coffee in the yard each day before the summer heat drove us inside to prepare for the day's excursions.

The home had possibly the best stocked kitchen in any VRBO we have ever rented with two 4/5 cup coffee makers (perfect to satisfy both bold and decaf drinkers) as well as another large coffeemaker. Every possible kitchen appliance, pot, pan, and tool was readily available. The bedrooms each had spacious walk-in closets with more than ample supplies of good quality hangers.

We very much enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and coming "home" after each day's adventures. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean and well-stocked with towels, and "extras" such as Netflix offered late night options.

The only "critters" who tried to holiday with us were some ants in outdoor areas. Feral cats, javelinas, and other critters must have been vacationing elsewhere - which was fine with us! Birds, however, chirped happily in the trees and visited the bird-feeders adding to the beauty and tranquility of the outdoors.

We would highly recommend this vacation home, appreciated Maggie coming to our rescue when the glass sliding door locked behind us on our final day, and would return in a heartbeat on a future visit to Sedona.

Thank you, Maggie, for helping to make our vacation memorable, comfortable, and feel like home away from home.

Quiet, comfortable, great hiking access

  • 4 of 5

Maggie's place is in a relatively quiet neighborhood away from crowds. Her backyard is a neat serene garden. She has plenty of information on how things work in the home, and is readily available for questions or issues via phone and internet. We had a lovely restful stay for 4 days, hiked so many beautiful trails, will need to come back to see the rest of them! Awesome scenery. Thanks for sharing your home, and providing the Red Rocks Permit which we took full advantage of.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home for four nights with my husband and kids. It was a wonderful experience. The fenced in back yard was great for our kids and us to start out our day as well as to end each day. The neighborhood is peaceful and very close to ammenities. It's surrounded by beautiful rock mountain Sedona scenery. The house provided everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. The location of the home was perfect for us, as it is only about a 15 minute drive to downtown Sedona. And a beautiful drive at that! I wouldn't want to stay right downtown because I think it would be a bit busy at times.

Maggie was very pleasant to communicate withand deal with. She was very attentive, positive and receptive to our needs and I never had to wait long for replies.

I would recommend this house to friends.

Beautiful Sedona Home

  • 5 of 5

The backyard of this attractive home is truly a gem. Daytime and evening alike are so pleasant with the abundant shade from the mature trees and pergola, and the landscaping compliments them perfectly. Very peaceful. We found everything comfortable and updated throughout the home. Pride of ownership shows. The neighborhood is equally nice, and quiet. Maggie is very friendly and a pleasure to correspond with. Thank You!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home that is very convenient to everything Sedona! We loved our time here. Very comfy beds, nice kitchen with more than you'd ever need, and a tranquil back yard. If we return we will definitely want to stay here again. The owner was so nice and easy to work with.
