About Mike Knight

The house was originally owned by our mother Marilyn Knight. She left the house to her three boys Mike, Harvey and Jon. We are all originally from Vermont but started calling Sedona home in 2000. We keep the house and visit it often to honor the memory of our mom who loved Sedona so very much.

Mike Knight purchased this house in 2000

Property needs maintenance

  • 1 of 5

When you rent a place you expect it to be similar to your home or better. This place could be brought up to a good standard with minimum expense.

Immaculate, remodeled home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I just love this property! Newly remodeled, the floor plan really works well, and the home is immaculate. I stayed here a month, and I immediately felt at home. The fenced back yard was great for my dog, but the best part was the location in proximity to Sugarloaf trailhead. It's hard to put a price tag on being able to walk out your front door every evening and be at the summit of Sugarloaf mountain 20 minutes later. The entire trail system right out the back door is phenomenal. Mike, the owner, was really easy to contact and very accomodating. This was his mother's home, and Marylin was very active in the Sedona community. I was glad the family left her personal library collection in the home, as it is very much in the "spirit of Sedona". I plan to return often :)

Perpect house for everything Sedona.

  • 5 of 5

Our year long cross country road trip brought us to Sedona for an extended stay of a month.

The moment we walked into the Marilyn House we knew this is a special place;

a beautiful private living space, immaculate, lovely, warm and inviting, with fully appointed kitchen and comfortable beds.

The location is convenient to hiking trails, restaurants and shopping, yet it's a very quiet neighborhood. We felt like we experienced the real Sedona!

We enjoyed the many hiking trails straight from the home, many picnics, sunset viewings, occasional meetings with javelinas, and the magical experience of hearing coyotes howl at dusk; we are taking home many precious memories.

Coming home in the evening, cooking dinner, watching a movie, playing scrabble or backgammon, or reading in one of Marilyn's books from her library of thought leaders....time flew by way too fast.

Mike was a responsive, accommodating host, and his home is a great value. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Home & PERFECT Location

  • 5 of 5

The Home is in a nice neighborhood & Very Close To many Trails- We Hiked Teacup, Thunder & Top of Sugarloaf (view is amazing). Close to midtown for eating out/shopping and just a5-10min drive to other trails- Airport Vortex - great for Sunset. We loved being able to cook breakfast & have coffee in the mornings; drink a bottle of wine in the evenings. I cooked chicken in &steaks in oven. Every kitchen utensil you need is there! I'd prob buy 2 more wine glasses for house or bring with you.

The kitchen & family/TV room are Super Nice & spacious. No great views from inside house, yet, just walk to end of driveway & a VIEW!

Heat, Water, A/C all worked Perfectly. Bathroom is nice & Beds are comfy. The carpet in bedrooms is not pretty - possibly they will replace or just put in tile. Family room furniture is comfy. TV works great & it is very peaceful location. Marilyn was a Peaceful lady & I loved her bunnies & books.

We were up by 6:30a.m. hitting trails before anyone else & back to house for breakfast - we'd return after 7pm from our hikes & adventures- exhausted-The queen bed is very comfy.

Mike is so nice, honest & helpful, I would rent from him for any property he owns. I just hope in a few years, he'll let us stay again.

It is close/walking distance to a tourist trap "Coffee Pot" - not good food, not even the omelets, but coffee was good & there is a tiny shop that I got some gifts from. Sedona Pizza in Midtown is good, as are some others.

NO DOWNSIDES TO staying here, perfect for 2-4 folks= one bathroom.

Comfortable, convenient walking to trails, beautiful views, close to all the action!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Marilyn House could hardly have been better. The home is comfortable, clean, beautifully laid out--and has a fully equipped kitchen!! All instructions for coming, going, and staying (including electronics) were clear and concise. We love to hike, and there are five trails starting from or close to the trail head that is just two blocks away--and more that those lead to. Step out the door and see Capitol Butte and Coffee Pot rocks golden in the dawn or amber in the sunset. Quiet neighborhood, delightful next door neighbors, walking distance to groceries, movies, restaurants . . .tops. We can't wait to go back. Everything promised in the description, and more. Communications excellent. Oh, and a malfunctioning washing machine fixed in 24 hours. Thanks Mike!!
