Quote: The red rock formations and pinnacles are breathtaking. We enjoyed hiking, jeep and balloon tours, exploring the canyons and shopping. We did a day trip to Jerome and the Grand Canyon. We stayed at the Villas of Sedona in the west end of the town.
Best Things Nearby:Great restaurants, Coffee Pot Rock vista, Best Things About the Resort:Well located, central but out of the busy part of town. Roomy accommodation in the one-bedroom loft. Resort Experience:The townhouse has a roomy kitchen and living area with a pull out bed. The upper floor has the master suite, which was a good size. The mattress was very hard and uncomfortable for me. The loft area was like a second bedroom overlooking the living area below. It had a pullout.

Our "Northern Lights" Balloon Trip was sensational. We gently floated over the canyons and desert at dawn. Only 6 in the balloon allowed for great viewing. We greatly appreciated the skilled and knowledgeable staff. Mimosas, strawberries, ambrosia and sweets awaited us upon landing. We will cherish our mystical memories.

The red rock formations and pinnacles are breathtaking. There is so much to do if you enjoy the outdoors. The temperature in august was low to mid 80s, very comfortable. The evenings cooled to low 70s. We saw only one evening of rain. Jerome is an excellent short distance side trip...The place to do your shopping. Prices are considerably less than in town. Sedona restaurants were among the best I've eaten at. Consistently very good with good service...and this is from a Montrealer who is use to fine dining everywhere at home. Among the other restaurant we ate at were the Javelina Cafe, Delucas, Heartline Cafe and for a quick lunch treat the Mesquite grill counter in centre town....Read More
