About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Red Rock Views

The panoramic red rock views are stunning from the great room, the large back patio, and the bedrooms. And after four months of renovations our beautiful home is fully furnished and appointed with the all the modern amenities including an outdoor hot tub. On ½ acre lot, the 2,100 square foot one level house has a master suite; two bedrooms; two bathrooms; a great room encompassing living room and dining room; a fully stocked kitchen, a cute breakfast nook, and a laundry room with full size washer and dryer. We have done everything to create a quiet retreat and a convenient base for the many adventures that are Sedona. Our home is a great place for you to relax during your vacation or special occasion but, with Wi-Fi and a built-in office alcove so you can check email and work if necessary.

Located just 5 miles away from the crowds of Sedona in a quiet neighborhood with wide streets and little traffic, the house is close to everything but not so close you can hear it. It is also just two blocks from the Oak Creek Country Club, close to a myriad of trails, and only a mile to the shopping district in the quaint Village of Oak Creek. The galleries of Sedona, world class dinning, healing spas, and hiking and biking trails are all a short drive or bike ride away.

Enjoy a drink under the cathedral ceiling of the 500 square foot patio while grilling or relaxing in the hot tub as the setting sun lights up the red rocks. Then marvel at the stars in this dark skies compliant neighborhood. In cooler months, relax in front of the gas fire pebble kiva fireplace and recline in the leather sofas. Unique decorations enliven and relax. The great room is large enough for entertaining yet cozy for a romantic get a way.

Sensitive individuals will appreciate no cats, dogs, or smokers have been in this home and it is professionally cleaned. The tile floor is new and the entire house has been recently painted. Linens, towels, shampoo, and soap provided. Each bed has a side sleeper pillow and back sleeper pillow. Ceiling fans throughout.

Living room has kivi fireplace, couches with four electric reclining seats, large flat screen TV with surround sound, and Direct TV.

Dining room has a thick, living edge juniper tree dining table with high ceilings and easy access to the kitchen.

Breakfast nook contains a cute red tiled dining table and incredible view of Castle rock.

Front bedroom has custom built log bunk bed with extra-long twin over queen beds, rustic fan, and view of the green mountains.

About Joe Clapper

Michele and I are trail runners and for Thanksgiving 2012 we went to Sedona to run the trails in the national Forest. We immediately fell in love with Sedona and started looking for a house. As soon as we walked into this house we knew this was the one. We bought this house on the last day of 2012 and I spent four months of 2013 renovating the house. Michele decorated from local artists and local art sellers.

We love traveling the world (picture above is from Iceland) and we know what is important when visiting a new place. We took this knowledge and integrated as much as we could into furnishing, decorating, outfitting our Sedona home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

For now our work keeps us in the Washington DC area most of the time but, whenever we can we go to Sedona to seek adventure and to relax. -Joe

Joe Clapper purchased this house in 2012

Why Joe Clapper chose Sedona

When looking for a house in Sedona, Red Rock Views and being close to trails were non-negotiable. We picked this particular house because it was in a quiet neighborhood, close to everything, yet not so close you can hear it. The Village of Oak Creek offers all the amenities without the hustle and bustle of uptown Sedona.

What makes this house unique

The cathedral ceiling in the great room with a glass wall looking out on Castle Rock and Gunsight Gap made this house unique. As you walk through the sliding door onto the large patio the panorama of red rocks expands. The covered patio allows you to relax in comfort as the natural world surrounds you.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Sedona has spectacular views and hiking options... so yes, visit Sedona. AND, stay at this rental....the red rock views from the hot tub, the gas fireplace to take the chill out of the crisp morning air. The home has everything you will need... everything... and is beautifully decorated, and impeccably well-maintained. The owner was attentive and responsive to our every question... and checked in with us upon arrival and prior to departure. Truly a special place!! Book it!!

lovely, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with so many thoughtful extras. We loved the hot tub and the reclining sofas in the living room. Nice big shower stalls, comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. If you want to be in the heart of Sedona this house is a bit out of town but if you want quiet and to be near some of the best trails and formations it's great. There is a nice grocery store and a bunch of restaurants very close to the house, so you have lots of things nearby in the Village of Oak Canyon. If we return to Sedona we would definitely rent this house again.

This is a terrific house, not just for a vacation stay but to live in permanently. Excellent design: spacious, huge patio with great red rock views, terrific kitchen with everything (we mean everything) you could need - and impeccably organized. Quiet area, so good sleeping. Joe was a great host. He was responsive and genuinely concerned that we should have the very best experience. We've rented 3-5 vacation places a year for 25 years or more , mostly in Europe, and this home is at the top of the list. If you want a house in Sedona, look no further.

The house was beautiful and so was the area. The small touches in the house made a huge difference. There were plenty of menu's for local restaurants (with reviews from the owner) and also plenty of information about what to do in the area. Every drawer and cabinet was labeled with its contents so there was no searching around for which drawer held which thing. The owners communicated with us before the vacation and even e-mailed us mid-week to make sure everything in the house was up to par. We will be staying here again!
