Overview

About the property

7 Miles North Of Uptown Is This Lovely Home Located On Oak Creek

Oak Creek Canyon, one of Sedona's more favorite attractions, is where you will find our home named Doc's Shangri-La. A wonderful two-story vacation home that will sleep up to 8 guests, Shangri-La sits in a quiet residential community nestled at the base of tall canyon walls and alongside the beautiful and always present waters of Oak Creek.

While staying at Shangri-La, you will find yourself surrounded by canyon walls of tree covered red rock towering seemingly all around you. A short walk will bring you to the creek with access to hiking trails, swimming and trout fishing. A short drive brings you to Slide Rock Park; a natural water park made from smoothed red rocks that everyone enjoys. Arizona's most popular state park.

Back at home, you'll find a great deck that overlooks the creek. With Oak Creek providing the ever-present sound of it's running waters, the deck is a wonderful place to sit, relax, and enjoy the fresh air and green beauty around you. The deck is accessed through the Great Room and the Master Bedroom Suite and also offers a private 5 person hot tub, a gas barbeque grill and comfortable seating.

A spacious 3 bedroom home, Shangri-La also has a large den with separate entrance, so there is plenty of room for everyone!

We send an email one week prior to check in with detailed instructions on how to get to the house. You may also look at map on this site. We will text door code the day of check in.

Indian Gardens
Car: necessary

Indian Gardens Café is a mile south of the property. One of my very favorite places to eat and hang out! There are two hikes very close to the house. One is Sterling Pass. Challenging, but rewarding! Trailhead is approximately 1/2 mile from house, going north, on left side of road. There is no parking, except on road side. The other trail would be Wilson North. This trailhead begins at the north end of Enciniso picnic area. There are too many trail to mention in town. These are just a few near the house. There is a hiking/biking book at the house that will help you choose the best hike for you.

Notes:
There is limited cell phone reception in the canyon. Some work great, some not so well. There is a land line that does not have long distance but you can receive calls. If you need to make long distance calls, please bring calling card on your trip. You can always just drive 2 miles south to use your cell phone also. Also please be aware if you are unfamiliar with the canyon, during run off months, the water levels can rise above the bridge, making it impassible. While all the waterfalls and runoff can be the most beautiful experience in the canyon, it can also be annoying when you are unaware of it. This can last anywhere from an hour to several hours.

Excellent, well-kept home in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week, and could not have been happier with our choice. The home was in excellent shape, and had everything we needed. There were no surprises, and check-in was a breeze. The location in Oak Creek Canyon is beautiful. Nothing negative to report at all.

Charming and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

First, I'd like to thank the owners for providing detailed instructions on the location and operation of the home.

The home is very comfortable and can easily accommodate 8 people. The floor plan is spacious with two living rooms where the kids can hang out and play on the giant bean bags downstairs and the adults can enjoy a conversation upstairs or on the giant balcony patio. A hot tub dip after a day of exploring was a very pleasant surprise!

The home is located in one of the best parts of the canyon just minutes from town and about 2hrs from the Grand Canyon. We had a great time exploring the creek that runs behind the home. And you are just minutes from several fantastic hiking trails.

If we ever make it back to Sedona, we will definitely stay here again!

For reference, we stayed in May 2017. This is a perfect time of year to visit Sedona. Cool in the mornings, but warms to mid 70's during the day. No rain!

Reunion with childhood friends

  • 5 of 5

The location along with the great feeling of a home, left the impression and inspiration of one of the most memorable trips we have had. It was like magic listening to the creek and the wind thru the trees. It's definitely worth a repeat visit.

Relaxing vacation home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family came from different parts of the country to spend a long weekend in Sedona. Doc's Shangri-La was a perfect spot to relax with family - the main level is an open floor plan with an awesome deck and hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - there was enough rooms and privacy for everybody. Lots of amenities with this house!! The house is very nicely done and located in a secluded area within Oak Creek Canyon. We had a lot of fun exploring and it was only a short drive to restaurants and state parks. Highly recommend Slide Rock State Park which is only a mile away!
