Upscale Sedona Home Near Hiking Trails

Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Whether you’re an adventurous traveler or one who likes nothing better than to unwind with a few good books during your well-earned vacation, our family’s hideaway, which backs up to the extraordinary Red Rocks of Sedona, will provide you with first-class accommodations at a price that’s within your reach.

From the pillow-top mattresses and the luxurious bed linens to the thick cotton towels in the bathrooms; from the great room’s warm kiva fireplace and flat screen TV to the well-stocked kitchen with all newer appliances and granite countertops, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how “Javelina Haven” brings you so much value for your traveling dollars.

This custom built, three-bedroom, two-bath Pueblo-style home is tucked away in the quiet, semi-rural “Coffee Pot” neighborhood near the rock formation of the same name. Our getaway is on Maxwell House Drive; you’ll see other streets carrying similarly vintage coffee brand names to carry out the theme: Sanborn, Farmer Brothers, Nescafe. Our major cross street, off Highway 89, is Coffee Pot Drive. It’s clear that those who laid out Sedona’s streets had some fun naming them!

We believe you’ll be enchanted by the West Sedona setting and wowed by the rock formations that tower over the little canyon that opens to our backyard. From the great room, breakfast nook, dining area, master bedroom and the wraparound patio you’ll see the formations known as Capitol Butte, Three Golden Chiefs and Sugarloaf. And scenic Sugarloaf Trailhead, which provides hiking and mountain bike access to a host of trails, is less than two short blocks away from our vacation home.

Get away from it all. Enjoy a stay at Javelina Haven.

About Gil and Carol Cormaci

We are Gil & Carol Cormaci and we are both native Southern Californians. Our primary residence is in Pasadena, Calif. We bought our home in Sedona to have a getaway in the Red Rock Country of Arizona. Gil loves to hike. When we're vacationing there he's up very early to take hikes before breakfast. (Our house is just a short walk from the Sugarloaf Trailhead.) Carol is fascinated by the ancient Native American ruins that can be found all over Northern Arizona, and loves the fact the house can be a base for such explorations. We're both inspired by the extraordinary beauty of Sedona.

Gil and Carol Cormaci purchased this house in 2005

Why Gil and Carol Cormaci chose West Sedona

The semi-rural setting of our house, which we've nicknamed 'Javelina Haven,' provides a quiet, private place in which we can unwind. Yet, just a few minutes away are two well-stocked supermarkets and all the other services and amenities one might expect in an average-sized city, including restaurants, movie theaters, golf courses, art galleries, shopping opportunities and more, all surrounded by the amazing scenery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know we had a wonderful stay at Javelina Haven. The home is beautiful and clean and relaxing. We did have a herd of Javelina come and visit one evening. Not ever hearing of them before we thought it was exciting to see. Sedona is a beautiful place we did hiking, pink jeep tour and atv riding - twice. Thank you for all the information, all directions to and for the house were complete. We did have dinner at Dahl and DiLuca, the service and food was excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home and Sedona. If we do return to Sedona we will look up Javelina Haven as our preferred place to stay.

Thanks for everything these accommodations certainly contributed to our success vacation.

Beautiful Cozy Home in Sedona

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Three siblings and spouses coming from 3 different states met in Sedona for a reunion. The house was very comfortable and roomy. We loved having morning coffee and our evening happy hour on the private back patio with a lovely view and free bird concerts. Fantastic hiking was right in our back yard and we didn't have to drive anywhere to be in those beautiful red rocks. If we ever come back to Sedona we would definitely want to stay in this home again! The owners have thought of everything...even walking sticks and backpacks for visitors to use. We'd highly recommend this home.

Owner's Response: It's so gratifying to know our "Javelina Haven" turned out to be the ideal spot for another sibling reunion. It seems to be a magnet for such gatherings. We're glad you found the items we have on hand for those who want to explore the local trails, including those hiking sticks and backpacks. We hope some of you climbed nearby Sugarloaf to take in the vista from there. Most importantly, we're glad you had the opportunity to gather together from your various home states to create memories in beautiful Sedona! You'll be able to savor those for a long time. Thanks for having been wonderful guests.

Location is great to hike from the house, very private back patio.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the split floor plan. Master large and has 2 separate closets. Home is updated and has all dishes, utensils, etc. one could need. Would go back for sure but only thing I could see needs improvement is the living room chairs are a bit worn. Thanks you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Clean, Comfortable and Close to Hiking!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 4 and we found this property to be perfect for what we wanted in a HomeAway property. The beds were very comfortable, the neighborhood quiet and near some very nice hiking trails. Thunder mountain and Teacup trails were only a 10 minute walk to the trailheads. The seating in the backyard proved to be a perfect place to star gaze as well. The kitchen was well stocked and it is best to visit the property to see what is already available before heading to any of the grocery stores that are also

nearby. All instructions were very easy and we found some great travel brochures available to help us along in our discovery of Sedona. Our only early bird got a glimpse of the javalina that came through early one be aware that they do come around, but the rest of our party never saw them. We hope to return to Sedona and hope that Carol and Gill will still have their home available for us to enjoy once again.

Heaven at Javelina Haven!!!

  • 5 of 5

My 4 sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay at Javelina Haven - Using this lovely home as our base, we were able to walk to several nearby hiking trails, and drive to excellent nearby restaurants, shopping, and sunset views. The house was very roomy, with a nice deck out back and very comfortable beds. And, not to worry if you forget something - this house was the most well-stocked rental home we've ever found - plenty of cooking utensils, games, books, movies, etc. The owners of this wonderful home, Carol and Gil, encouraged us to make this home our own while we were in Sedona, and we felt very comfortable doing that because they made it so easy for us. At the end of our stay, we all agreed we had found the perfect house for our "sista's" reunion, and we all hope to go back to Sedona sometime in the future - if we do, there's no doubt where we'll be staying!

Perfect in location and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean and well-equipped home at the base of Sugarloaf Mountain in West Sedona. We loved hiking each day, right in the neighborhood, on trails with spectacular views! This location is perfect in a less congested area of Sedona, but within a short walk or drive to plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and hikes. The accommodations were great for three couples, with an amazing master bedroom and bath! Beds were very comfortable. The owners are very responsive when making arrangements and provide a good deal of detail about the home and surrounding area. If heading to Sedona, this is the place to stay!

Fantastic views and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this spic-n-span clean lovely house at the foot of Sedona's coffee pot rock. We just walked up the road to the trailhead and enjoyed gorgeous hikes everyday. Quiet neighborhood with lots of restaurants nearby. Don't miss the Coffee Pot restaurant at the bottom of the road. It serves the best breakfast I've ever had! This is now my number one pick for a Sedona stay!
