The condo far exceeded our expectations . After sleeping in a tent for 6 nights, and hiking the Grand Canyon , this condo was the perfect place to relax and chill. It was out of the busiest area of Sedona, which made it easier to get around(not that there’s much traffic here anyway). There were amenities close by, and the hot tub was perfect ! Would stay here again !
The condo is very roomy, clean and relaxing. It's quiet & peaceful with balconies off each bedroom. A short drive into town & Oak Creek. Full kitchen and 2 &1/2 baths. The hot tub looked inviting but we never had time to try it out. I highly recommend staying there.
We expected a decent place to stay on our vacation to Sedona, but this beautiful two bedroom just out of Sedona far exceeded expectations. A two bedroom (both w. TVs), with bathrooms, the home is fully furnished with everything a guest would want - everything from a great kitchen with every cooking utensil you can think of, to a washing machine and even word games for entertaining. The owner went above and beyond to provide instructions for how to use everything, make sure everything was in order and comfortable and the hot tub which looks out on the mountains (picture is accurate) (and grill on the patio) after a long day hiking certainly topped off our trip. We felt at home! The property is in a neighorhood close to everything you'll need (good supermarket, good restaurants - we highly recommend Casa Rustica and Picazzos) and in proximity of some great trails for hiking. We had a ball and I'll definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Upon arriving at the townhouse, we were pleasantly surprised with the interior. However, the pictures of the outdoor/patio space are misleading, it seems that there is a walled off space that separates the townhouses. This was not the case. There are three connected townhouses, which have other residents at the current time. For the majority of the time, we were unable to let our dog outside with us due to other resident's dogs barking and coming after our dog. The rest of the stay was fine until we headed home and received a phone call from the owner. Apparently, the cleaning person was unhappy about cleaning up the dog hair that was on the comforter and the floor. (Although we told them up front that we were bringing a german shepherd, one of the largest shedding dogs). The owner said we would need to pay an extra dry cleaning fee to clean the comforter. I told the owner that I am now concerned that you don't regularly clean the comforter since it's such a hassle to get it clean now. The owner stated that they do not regularly wash it, and the cleaning guy will just place it in the dryer for a few minutes. Additionally, there is an extra $25 pet fee, which you would think is to cover extra cleaning costs of bringing a pet, however, I guess this is not the case. They expect to make extra money off of guests bringing pets without having anything additional to clean. The frustrating part is that our dog is very well trained, did not chew anything or have any accidents, and was crated while we were out. We're also not sure what the cleaning fee covers because guests are expected to wash all dishes, and start a load of the used towels before leaving. Considering a $75 cleaning fee is already included, I think this is a bit ridiculous. The interior and location were fine, however, considering the high price of the stay, along with additional fees, and the hassle of arguing about dog hair were not worth it. We went up for a relaxing stay for my birthday and came home to a rude and frustrating argument. There are many other more convenient and welcoming places to stay in Sedona.
We just returned from an incredible stay at The Bell Rock Vista Townhouse, Unit J. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we've already booked another, longer stay later this month.
The Townhouse is located in a beautiful neighborhood in the Village of Oak Creek which is just a few miles south of Sedona proper. I actually prefer this location to staying in Sedona, it's quieter and less tourist influenced. There are several excellent restaurants withing walking distance and a very good grocery store nearby. We were able to ride our mountain bikes to several trails that literally start just a few blocks from the Townhouse.
When we arrived, we found the home to be exceptionally clean and well equipped. We had everything we could possibly need for a pleasant and restful stay. The unit is very warm and welcoming and is furnished tastefully. The property owner, Richard was very responsive to our original booking inquiry and very friendly and thoughtful, making sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
As you can tell we were very impressed with this home and we can, without hesitation give this property a very enthusiastic TWO THUMBS WAY UP!
