Best Sedona Neighborhoods to Stay

Compared to many other US destinations, Sedona is quite compact, but it offers distinct neighborhoods, especially when booking a vacation rental. Here are the main areas to consider when booking an Airbnb:

  • Downtown Sedona is basically its tourist hub, where you’ll find most of the hotels, restaurants, and the open-air mall at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. This is also where you’ll find most of its traffic, but if you stay here you can avoid parking nightmares and walk to and from dinner.
  • West Sedona is a residential area with many affordable rental options. You may have to drive a bit more here, but hikers will appreciate that many Airbnbs are within walking distance of the trailheads. This is also where most of the grocery stores in town are located, if you plan to use your Airbnb’s kitchen.
  • Chapel is another fairly residential neighborhood located just south of Uptown Sedona. (It takes its name from the Chapel of the Holy Crossbuilt directly into the red rock mountains of Sedona.) Here you will find vacation rentals with great access to the hiking trails around cathedral rock and swimming holes along Oak Creek.
  • For people looking for something a little more remote, you can also search outside the city limits for rentals in and around Oak Creek Canyon just north or Red Rock Loop area near Red Rock State Park.
