Traveling to another state for a couple of weeks is a first for us. We selected Sedona because of fond memories of when I was there last, 10 plus years ago. It has changed...more people and traffic, however, the charm and beauty of Sedona still exists.
The property we rented, Quietude, could not have been more perfect for the two of us and our two dogs. The layout of the house was great and the large fenced in back yard was super for the dogs. The house, inside and out had, everything we needed. In addition, the views were magnificent from almost all rooms in the house. The neighborhood quiet, and what I liked best, within walking distance to numerous hikes, a small brewery with great burgers, and town, if you wanted to venture down, was only a mile away.
There were a few minor issues with the ice maker and hot tub....almost not worth mentioning (and Karen, from Red Rock Realty, was very responsive).
We would certainly rent this house again!
Our stay at Quietude was wonderful. The views are spectacular and we sat at the kitchen bar and watched the sun rise up over the rocks every morning.
We were there for 23 days, so we cooked often. The kitchen is well stocked and also well furnished. The master bedroom was comfortable and we really liked how dark is was. We could leave the blinds and curtains open and enjoy the night sky!
Our small dog loved having a yard and grass to lay on in the sun. The hot tub was perfect for the end of a long days hike. We hiked right from the house! We already have plans for next year!
This house lives up to its name; i.e. it is very quiet. The location was fabulous, close to downtown (1 mile to restaurants and shops in a few minutes drive). The rooms were clean, comfortable, and the perfect size for 4 people. The backyard was beautiful. We enjoyed nice sunsets and sunrises from the house. (photos can be seen HERE.) We used the hot tub every day and enjoyed star gazing. We put the grill, backyard table, and washer/dryer to use.
The kitchen was well stocked (the ice maker was frozen solid but we were able to work around that). Some minor things were that the slate floors were cool (so, bring your slippers in the winter) and there was a weird glass door to the master bath that was uncomfortable. Regardless, it was a great home-base for our awesome week in Sedona and we would definitely stay here again when we return to the area (and we had plenty left to do that we didn't get to on this vacation).
Quietude exceeded our expectations. Red Rock views, perfect location, friendly neighbors, well appointed kitchen, comfortable living areas, great outdoor spaces. We loved every minute of our stay and have already made plans to return.
Quietude definitely is a perfect name.
We enjoyed sitting in the backyard listening/watching the birds and relaxing. The house is well laid out and comfortable and very close to Jordan Trails. Uptown is only about a 20 minute walk where you will find restaurants and shops so a good location if you don't want to drive everywhere.
Dog Lovers stay here!
We bring our dogs on every vacation and staying in a hotel just doesn't work for us anymore. No going out to lunch or dinner. No enjoying shops together as a couple or hitting a hike where pets aren't allowed. Can't leave our dogs even in a kennel at a hotel, which we do understand. Still, we don't want to kennel our dogs for a week or longer. Quietude worked perfectly for us. With a fenced back yard Grady and Buddy Roo enjoyed their free runs and play time. Be sure to hit the hiking trails just down the street. Beautiful and pets allowed.The house is clean, welcoming and in a wonderful quite neighborhood close to town.
It was just the two of us, but would have worked great for more people. Felt very safe and relaxed in this peaceful setting.
Thank you for sharing your fabulous, well stocked home. We enjoyed the proximity to hiking and downtown but it was the views and lighting that were the best treat!
Beautiful area. Just not enough time to see and do all. Will have to come back again. Great home - really enjoyed our time here with family and friends, wonderful views from each window. WOW!!!
We had a lovely time in this beautiful home. We made good use of the nearby trails- Jordan, Brins Mesa, Soldiers Pass, Cibola Pass and Jim Thompson. All have different things to offer. It was lovely to come home, sit in the backyard and soak in the hot tub.
Had a great time up at the Grand Canyon (2 hours away!) Had fun hiking on the Jordon Trail just up the block. Coffeepot Restaurant, great for breakfast. Shops @ Tlaquepaque were great/ but spent too much $ there.
Had a great time at Quietude.
What a beautiful and relaxing place to hang out with girlfriends!
“Quietude” is aptly named. Thank you ever so much for making your home available to us!
What a beautiful place to spend Christmas! We loved the scenery; the views from the front and back yard are spectacular!
We recently stayed at Quietude for four weeks in March 2016 and I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The house was extremely comfortable and well set out - plenty of space and fantastic views. It was a great home that allowed us to be part of the splendour of Sedona.
A definite plus was Red Rock Realty, they responded to every query immediately and were more than happy to help.
We are a returning customers with Red Rock and have enjoyed every property that we have stayed in - we will be back!
We spent a lovely vacation at Quietude this month. Six of us from three different states met to enjoy Sedona. We found Quietude through Karla Flores at Red Rock Realty. She knew the houses well and helped us choose the one that fit our needs. Her patience and attention to detail were commendable.
We found the home to be well equipped, organized, beautiful and comfortable. The supplies were in place and we found everything convenient and in good repair.
The large yard was furnished for comfortable dining. The red rock views were so beautiful every day in all kinds of light and weather. The location close to town and hiking was convenient.
Just for the record, this is the first time I have ever rented a place with a hot tub that was in good working order the entire time! Hot tub with a view by day and stars by night. Lovely.
All of us enjoyed our stay and felt very much at home there. Thank you.
We enjoyed an amazing two weeks at Quietude - December 17- 31. We are a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 teenagers. While the home only has two bedrooms, the office has a daybed/trundle that worked great for our daughter.
I was nervous about staying near Uptown, as we have stayed in West Sedona on past visits. My fears were unfounded. The home is aptly named, as the neighborhood was very nice and quiet. The views were stunning and we even saw javelina for the first time. The home is updated and has a great family room with a wood burning fireplace. We enjoyed the hot tub during a snowstorm. The kitchen is modern and well stocked. I would rent this house again.
We enjoyed renting Quietude for the month of January. The house is older, although updated and well kept. It is on a very quiet street up close to the mountain and very near the Jordan trailhead (within walking distance), with absolutely spectacular views from all windows, especially at sunset. From the office and front windows we saw Javelinas walk by on the street almost every day. The spacious back yard is completely enclosed by a tall fence and includes a lovely hot tub that is serviced weekly (as is the lawn). The kitchen was well equipped and I loved that there was a large selection of spices left by other generous renters. The master and guest room beds were comfortable, and although we didn’t try them, the trundle beds looks substantial but are probably most appropriate for children or teens. We loved the “real” fireplace, especially since it snowed several nights. The washer/dryer is in the garage, which was different for “northerners”, but more than adequate. It was a real pleasure to work with this management company and thought that Karla Flores was exceptional in her response to our questions.
