About Todd

I love the outdoors and nature. I enjoy boating, wake boarding and skiing on Lake Powell, as well as golf, football and auto racing. My Bill Gray property for rent on VRBO is an extremely unique and remarkable property. There is truly nothing like it for rent anywhere in Sedona or the surrounding area.

Todd purchased this estate in 2009

Why Todd chose Sedona

I built the home in 2008 Come enjoy my vision! You won't be dissapointed.

What makes this estate unique

This is a one of a kind property. When I greet guests at the door and they walk inside....the first thing they say is, 'This is totally worth the trip'. They are amazed by the the views and the seclusion. 'The house looks like a castle!'

'How did you build it?' 'Tell us the story...' are the questions I hear most.

It is perhaps the quietest place you have ever been in your life. It's almost too quiet.

It's also the darkest place (when the moon is not out), the stars are AMAZING!

The house is designed for entertaining. The layout is basically one giant room. The great room, dining room and Kitchen are all connected and are enormous. The media room is off one corner, the master bedroom off another and the remaining bedrooms and suites are all connected off of the great room.

It is a fun property to spend time with friends, loved ones and family. Children are welcome.

Great house and views

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 couples and the house was nearly perfect for the week we were there. Big kitchen and living area. Huge outdoor living area with pool and hot tub. Plenty of room to gather and visit but plenty of space if you want alone time. The only negatives was it could have used another full bath but was not a big deal for us. The downside was the dirt road you had to drive on for 9 miles. Be sure to have a vehicle that does not ride low.

It is 30 minutes to Sedona but worth the drive to be able to stay in the house. We cooked most of our meals at the house without a problem. Everything you needed was available.

Sunsets were nice sitting around the fire pit!,

Beautiful home, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying here in mid-May. There were four couples and five children, and there was definitely plenty of room. The views from the infinity pool are stunning. There is bocce, horseshoes, darts, games in the closet--- lots of things to do with kids. It is a 40 minute drive to Sedona or Cottonwood so make appropriate plans. The house is stocked with water bottles, condiments, spices, and plenty of bathroom toiletries. When we arrived there was a freshly baked pie awaiting us on this kitchen counter which was a very nice touch. I read a review about issues with hot water, but we had no issues at all and we all showered daily. This is a wonderful place to disconnect and just hang out with friends and family. There are four bedrooms on the main floor and one upstairs, FYI.

Gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

This is a large, beautiful home with stunning views, especially from the patio. It is ideal if you want to spend a lot of time at the house. Driving into Sedona is about a 20-30 minute drive on a gravel road.

There are a few issues that the owner needs to address. We were a group of 8 adults and we thought the 6 bathrooms would be more than adequate. What we didn't realize is that only 3 of the bathrooms are full baths with a tub or shower. We ran out of hot water a couple of times and were totally without one time. The owner responded very promptly and the hot water was restored. We couldn't get the key pad to work on the front door and were unable to lock the sliding doors leading to the patio.

The kitchen is large and very well stocked. There are two dishwashers but one did not seem to work.

Overall we had a wonderful time and were able to deal with the minor issues.

Unique Location - Not by any means a luxury stay

  • 2 of 5

Traveled here with family of 12 for a retreat in early April. As other reviewers mentioned, this home was not in pristine condition by any means. While the kitchen stove was fancy, so many of the other appliances and dishware were broken or barely functioning. We had to rewash so many dishes before even thinking about using them, which explains the level of detail to the cleaning before our stay. We did not travel with all-wheel drive vehicles, and the owner made us feel like we were the only ones who had a hard time getting up the steep rocky driveway. He then told us that we were ruining his driveway. We too, had issues with hot water, that were not solved until everyone was forced to take a cold shower after a dip in the pool. Cold showers = unhappy guests, especially paying over $1k a night. The jacuzzi was not functioning like stated, took hours to get it working and then had to wait to have it warm up.

The house is large, and collects dust really easily. We asked for a vacuum on multiple occasions to help keep the house clean while we stayed there. The "gym" was far from pristine and needed a good solid scrub down. The pool was cold and not heated. Also the room above the garage was far from the condition of the other rooms in the house, more examples of less value for us. We wanted to like this place, but the lack of immediate attention to issues, along with the non-pristine function of this home did not match the price tag we paid. We wanted to love it but left disappointed given the issues we faced.

Amazing views, beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay with 4 families and loved it!

There is nothing quite like the view from the kitchen, through the huge opening, out to the infinity pool and to the red rock mountains beyond. We marvelled at it every single day. The high ceilings add to the effect. It's spectacular.

The "pay-it-forward" approach to kitchen essentials is great. You don't have to buy everything you need. Much of it is already there! The long dirt roads getting in and out mean you won't want to keep going to the store.

There's 2 beautiful big master bedrooms, 2 smaller bedrooms, and one more big bedroom above the garage which was a great place for all the kids to sleep.

Highly recommended!

I recently celebrated my 30th birthday at the BEAUTIFUL home in Sedona with 10 lovely ladies. The house far exceeded all of our expectations. It is spacious, and has the most stunning views. From the infinity pool, hot tub, bocci court, and large kitchen, it had everything we needed for an unforgettable weekend. If you are looking to get away and have some seclusion, this is the place for you. Not only is the house phenomenal, but the owner Todd is great as well. Very welcoming and accommodating to any additional needs, from recommending hikes, private chefs to come to the home and just overall warm and genuine hospitality. I would recommend this house to anyone with a large group and for any occasion. I can say without a doubt, that I will be back to the Resort at Bill Gray again. I don't believe in perfect, but this past weekend was pretty darn close.
