Nicknamed the Red Rock Country, Sedona is home to the beautiful red sandstone formations of Arizona . In the sunset, the formations seem to cast a glowing crimson light. It’s a cinematic, dramatic backdrop that has played host to more than sixty Hollywood productions.
Movie magic isn’t the only thing that Sedona has going for it; many New Age practitioners believe that the area has many vortexes, locations that radiate the earth’s power. The city’s influences of mysticism and artistry have spawned many New Age type shops, alternative medicine sellers, and art galleries.
Here, we bring you some of the most scenic Sedona HomeAway and Vrbo vacation rentals for you to come and experience the city’s renewing energy for yourself:
This unique getaway has been featured in famous publications like the New York Times for its one-of-a-kind architecture, and from the pictures, it should be obvious why. The modern, geometrical patterns of its architecture contrast with the antique and Southwestern touches of its furniture. The triangular windows face out to the famous red rocks. The potted plant resting on the ledge is a perfect image of serenity. As the sun sets, imagine the colours you will see melting and filtering into your house. The house is luxuriously equipped with elastic, temperature-sensitive beds and intricately tiled bathrooms. There is also a grill and a fully stocked pantry for cooking. As if the house isn’t spectacular enough, the natural surroundings are filled with cacti, junipers, and many animals. Deer and coyotes will be common visitors to the area.
Do note that a car is all but essential for reaching the property and enjoying the surrounding areas.
We just spent 5 glorious nights in this wonderful home. The pictures do not do it justice at all. It is roomy, clean, has lovely furnishings and décor, and everything we needed to make the celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary an anniversary to treasure and remember forever. Situated against the red rock mountains, walking paths right outside the door, sitting areas throughout the property. My husband, a musician, was pleasantly surprised by the baby grand … We will definitely be back! Julie Clifford

This HomeAway listing manages to be luxurious with its size and amenities, but humble and homely with its warm wooden accents and high levels of comfort. The property is located next to a golf course, so golf enthusiasts can rejoice with gusto. But, you don’t have to worry about any golf balls hitting you because the wrap-around deck is about 30 yards (27 metres) away from the course itself. Take in the majestic views of the red rocks from the back of the house. Marvel at what this private, spacious accommodation has to offer. With its relaxed atmosphere and a minimal amount of stairs, this listing is a great retreat for all.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this Oak Creek home! The view from the family room of the red rocks and the golf course is spectacular. It’s in a quiet, peaceful area and easy to get to all the area sights and attractions. This pet-friendly home is well-stocked with everything one needs. It’s clean and provides a beautiful setting. The owner is easy to work with, responds quickly and very attentive. We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Sedona! Guy
Whether you’re a group of retirees looking to have some time away from the fusses of your grown up children, a group of golf-loving friends, or a family with kids, this location is perfect.

This intimate, chic house earns its place on this list with its open-concept kitchen and stunning views. With the mountains rising dramatically from so many sides of the property, it really feels like you’re far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has two wrap-around balconies, one on each level, and it’s hard to find a room without a view in this house, including the bedrooms. There’s even a hot tub attached to the master suite, a perfect way to relax if you’ve spent an active day out hiking and exploring. Not only is this house beautiful, it is also functional; check out the fully equipped laundry room! It’s hard to believe, but this house is actually centrally located in Sedona. After a day of shopping, wine tours, and hiking, return to your lovely rental and rest your weary bones in these plush settings, enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
This home was incredible. Perfect for my family of 4 and my parents as well. 6 total. The location was absolutely perfect. Close to all attractions, hiking, mountain biking, shopping, dining. The porches on this house are worth their weight in gold. The views!! Morning and evening time you could find us on the porch taking in the views. Miles was super helpful in his communication as property manager. We would definitely stay here again. Matt

Your shoulders relax as the water bubbles, and you’re about to doze off in the comfort of it all, then your eyes catch the spectacular view of colourful red rocks in front of you and you can’t help but wonder if it’s real. If you’re up for this kind of experience, here is a stay with views and a location that will blow your mind.
The living room is spacey and comfortable with plush cushions and chairs, but the real stars of the show are the giant sloping windows and the scene of red rocks stretching miles and miles ahead. Surely, you think, you are far far away from the rest of humanity? As well as being in a scenic setting, this house is only a minutes’ walk away from the best shops in Arizona. It is even just under two hours away by car from the Grand Canyon. After a day’s worth of adventures and sightseeing, sleep soundly in a room with the most luxurious of sights, and the knowledge that the next day’s trip will be taken care of. Why? The owners also provide a complimentary concierge service with many great connections in the area. Look forward to discounted tickets, excursions, balloon rides, and jeep tours. If you’re looking for a beautiful place which feels serene and isolated but isn’t far away from civilization, this is your best bet.

Located outside the city limits of Sedona, this estate allows you complete privacy. The colours of the estate blend beautifully into its natural, rocky settings. It is a sprawling vacation home with a footprint of over 10,000 square feet (929 square metres), but the vast nature that surrounds it dwarfs the house from a distance. Its surroundings are impressive, and the decor matches up to the mountains’ grandeur. The amount of amenities this place comes with is amazing! It has a fitness room with equipment, video game consoles, a ping pong table, and an indoor basket ball court. Catering is available, but the kitchen is stocked with gourmet ingredients that you could start your own cooking show with and a collection of award-winning wines from all over the world. The bedrooms come with the same amazing views that surround the property, and you even have your own plasma TV in the master suite. Not to forget, there is a 45-foot (13.7-metre) negative-edge / infinity-edge pool overlooking views of the mountains. This decadent accommodation is so jam packed with activity, natural energy, and comfort that it’s safe to say that to stay here would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Even if you aren’t into particularly fantastical destinations or spiritual learning, there’s no denying that Sedona’s land feels almost otherworldly. It’s a place that feels completely unique. It’s full of adventures, where anything strange, wild, and romantic can happen. Maybe that’s why it’s captured the imaginations and hearts of movie-makers, hippies, and travelers across the ages. Maybe it will capture yours too. Book your stay in one of these excellent HomeAway and Vrbo vacation rentals, and be awed by the magical and mystical red rocks and be prepared to be blown away by the beauty.
