Just like Sedona itself, this airbnb suite offers unparalleled simplicity and natural beauty. This independent master suite is located next to one of the most powerful and energetic areas that Sedona is globally famous for. While you enjoy your rejuvenating retreat in this little abode, remember that you have the best attractions, restaurants, shopping areas, hiking trails, sacred healing locations, and many other things to experience only a few minutes away.

This living space, which you share with your friendly French and Colombian hosts, is done in a contemporary-eclectic style with grays and whites as the main base. The setting is fresh and neat and it makes for a nice tranquil space that goes perfectly with a Sedonian vacation.

The open kitchen with the living room offers a cheerful vibe while you chat, cook, and eat simultaneously. There is a dining space next to it as well for when you have your home-cooked meals. Your airbnb host fixes a delicious breakfast every morning, but you can buy your own groceries for other mealtimes.

And your room! The bedroom is your own private happy and comforting place. We all know that a really good bed can make a huge difference to your day, and this one ensures you have a good night at the end of each day.

The room has a separate entrance from the main house, providing you with privacy if you want it. This is your private door and the sight from your bed. In addition to the gorgeous red rocks, the room also looks out to a yard and a Buddha fountain. Soak in the views!

Love the picture already? This is the most gorgeous section of the huge bathroom that you have to yourself in this property. Dip in the vintage claw-foot tub for the most amazing long evening baths. Doesn’t it look so peaceful and lovely?!

Arnaud and Roxana were exemplary hosts. Very welcoming and open to sharing their home and space. Received some great advice on area hikes and local art galleries. There is a wonderful shopping village within walking distance, as well as a trailhead to an excellent hike, literally steps from their home. We also had some wonderful conversations just relaxing in their beautiful outdoor space. Very peaceful with spectacular views of the red rocks. Anne

The beautiful Airport Mesa Trail is less than one mile (1.6 kilometers) away from your suite. A looped trail that takes in some of the area’s most spectacular views, there’s no excuse not to get out and about and explore!

Looking for inspiration? This quiet airbnb studio apartment nestled amidst stunning natural beauty might be your answer. It has a separate entrance for your personal use, giving you more privacy. It sure makes for a pretty picture! But wait, this is just the beginning …

A minimalist room, encircled by gigantic unobstructed views of the best of Sedona’s red rock formations, the basic design really helps to bring out the best of this space. Minutes away from hiking trails and downtown, it is an ideal hub between activities around Sedona.

It might look like a picture on the wall, but this is just one of the spectacular views from outside your window. You can also see hot air balloons flying over the red rocks when you wake up around sunrise to gear up for your hike. The affable and warm atmosphere inside the room and the visual stimulation outside make great conditions for meditation too.

Beautiful property away from the sounds and lights of downtown yet close enough for a quick drive to shop or eat in the downtown area. The view is incredible from the deck and windows. Pictures don't do it justice. Even at night, the moonlight on the landscape created these amazing silhouettes. Great place for a couple to get away. It's about 2-2:30 hours from the Grand Canyon south or east entrances for those looking for a hub to se the Grand Canyon. Brendan

Having a kitchen is always a huge plus as well as a money saver. With tons of natural light and incredible views, making breakfast won’t be a dull task. Also, make some extra sandwiches and pack them for your hiking tour. On lazy days, sit back on the porch and soak in the nature. It is also mesmerizing to watch the late afternoon thunderstorms roll in over the mountains.

When was the last time you took a family vacation? By vacation, we mean a real break, without Wi-Fi and mobile phones. Take one in this beautiful house in the woods. Located in a stunning neighborhood, the house makes for a perfect place for bonding times with family and friends.

With everything done in wood, the living room comes with the charms of forest life. The massive stone fireplace surrounded by comfy couches adds to the cozy atmosphere of the house. Plus, it is useful in the evenings as the temperature in Oak Creek Canyon is always cooler than in Sedona. Time to get warm with your loved ones!

Surrounded by the lush Coconino National Forest and with the babbling Oak Creek nearby, the huge windows in the house reveal the majestic mountains and ponderosa pines beautifully. The bookshelves in the living room are stocked with not just books but lots of board games as well. You can use the big farm-style dining table for your games when not eating or just huddle in near the fireplace. There is enough wood in the house. Let the fun begin.

The cozy loft upstairs gives you a feeling of being tucked in a vintage cabin somewhere away in an eco-sphere. The loft also has a flat-screen television that comes with lots of DVDs and VHS tapes, complete with a large collection of family-friendly movies. Reminisce about old times and enjoy beautiful moments while watching old classics together.

This is a lovely garden bedroom with pretty white sheets and a super soft snuggly bed. Gaze up at the ceiling and get lost in the craftsmanship of the woodwork as you drift off to sleep. Wake up to beautiful forest views and a huge ponderosa pine waiting right outside the window.

The master bedroom with an en suite bathroom blends in perfectly with the rest of the house with its rustic atmosphere. White linens, vintage furnishings, and windows that display the greenery all around will surely give you a feeling of having come a long way from wherever you were.

We had a great time at Sarah's cabin! We spent the days hiking and the nights sipping cocktails by the fireplace. The kids had a blast and found a small sledding hill a couple houses down. Rooms were all very clean and cozy. Awesome location right between Sedona and Flag, so you are tucked away in a canyon but still have fairly quick access (and when I say that I mean 15-20 mins or so) to restaurants, more hiking, etc. There is a bottle of wine waiting for you when you get there and Sarah has very clear communication.

Soak away your hiking aches with a hot bubble bath. With flagstone counter tops and the tubs and sink done with whimsical garden hardware, the bathroom looks inviting. You are likely not going to spend a lot of time there though with so much action outside.

The twin hand-hewn bunk beds give the cowboy room a fun look and make it an entertaining place for the kids. The cute little boots and the vintage lamp are just a few of the many props in the home that are sure you capture your kids’ imaginations.

The farm table, meant for dining outside, is another magical feature that takes you to a fairyland.

4. A serene abode with panoramic views (USD 100)

This calming and relaxing airbnb accommodation is a bonanza in Sedona if you are looking for a place in the center, yet with a quiet atmosphere and magical views. It’s ideal for a spiritual experience or a romantic getaway. Located in a wonderfully quiet neighborhood one mile (1.6 kilometers) from uptown, the essence of the house lies in its panoramic views.

Source: Airbnb

A truly cozy house, you can sense the warmness and comfort no matter which part of the house you spend your time in. The living room is next to the open kitchen and makes for a perfect place to ask questions of the host or just enjoy lovely little chit chats. The house is furnished beautifully in woods and offers every amenity you might need.

Source: Airbnb

The master bedroom is beautiful with spectacular views. The master suite also includes a Jacuzzi tub and a double-head shower to add even more to the luxury amidst the mountains. Be happy to awaken to the million-dollar views of the red rocks and lots of sunshine every morning.

Source: Airbnb

The views refuse to leave you, no matter where you go in the house. Including in the kitchen. The attractive kitchen is very well stocked with spices, coffee, tea, and whatever you might need to whip up a quick meal. For those of you who enjoy the art of cooking, there is a wide array of cookware as well. And for those who like to dine out or enjoy an evening cocktail, wonderful restaurants await you nearby.

When you are not busy hiking or visiting beautiful Flamenco venues in the neighborhood, enjoy the lovely backyard with a stone Buddha stone fountain next to your private outdoor dining area. Somehow, just looking at a Buddha face is calming in itself, and this house has many of them. There is also a propane barbecue just in case you are in the mood for some outdoor cooking.

The house is in a great location: a quiet street well located for access to everything Sedona has to offer. We could hike up to the famous airport vortex right from the front door. The space is comfortable, modern and beautifully decorated. But the best thing of all is the view: the photos don’t do justice to the amazing 180 degree vista that you see from every room. Whether working from the desk in the mezzanine bedroom, or taking a shower in the master bathroom, the red rock cliffs of Sedona continued to wow us (..) Darrell

5. Personal space for a solo traveler in West Sedona (USD 52)

Source: Airbnb

This lovely and peaceful cottage is ideal for solo travelers who look for their own quiet personal space after a whole day of exploration and meeting new people. Located on a noiseless residential street just off the main highway that runs through Sedona (the 89A), makes it extremely easy to walk to grocery stores and restaurants. It is also a five-minute walk from the Lynx bus stop, which is another bonus.

Source: Airbnb

The entrance to the bedroom goes through the living room. Featuring a super comfortable bed, a huge bookshelf next to it adds a lovely touch and, of course, colors the room and the whole ambiance. The other door in the room opens to a pretty backyard with a nice fountain at the side. So, you can take your laptop and blog about the stunning hiking trails from your cute little cottage.

Source: Airbnb

We all love our beds, don’t we? A platform double bed with a five-inch (12.7-centimeter) foam mattress topper and a comforter ensures it is comfortable. So you don’t need to toss and turn before dozing off after a walk along the Airport Mesa and Vortex Trails. There is also desk space and a small closet for your use. A fast wireless internet connection in the house is extremely useful on days when you just want to snuggle inside the sheets and watch funny YouTube videos.

What a beautiful house! Pamela was kind enough to respond to my last minute request immediately and let me stay at her lovely place even though she wasn't there herself! The house was spotlessly clean and the bedroom was very cosy and homely, which was only made better by her 2 gorgeous cats waiting to greet me upon arrival! The location is perfect, you are close to everything and i was lucky enough to discover a little vegetarian gem that goes by the name of 'ChocolaTree' just moments away. (highly recommended, veggie or not!) Would definitely return to this magical place and hopefully meet Pamela in person Hana

Whilst the host of the house is a raw-food enthusiast, nobody will stop you from cooking. With full access to the refrigerator and kitchen, feel free to cook up whatever catches your fancy. A great selection of teas is also stocked for guests, so don’t forget to indulge whenever you feel the craving. There are delightful cats to give you company when you sit with your hot cuppa, but only if you want them too. Have a happy, homey stay!

7. Quirky Geometric Dome Home in Sedona (175 USD)

Why stay in a house shaped like a dome? Why not?! Its quirky design makes for a truly unique stay and will be one for the books. This dome must be an homage to geometry because the windows are shaped like triangles, pentagons and trapeziums, and the common area has checkerboard tiles. Quirky doesn’t compromise on style, as the high ceiling and large windows lets in tonnes of natural light, complementing the modern interior well. The dome home serves as a perfect base to go hiking as the nearest trial starts 100 yards (90 metres) away. Cook up a feast on the grill or full kitchen after a long day’s hike, and enjoy your dinner on the patio while watching the sun set in a distance against Cathedral Rock.
