Settle into Your “Work-cation” in Style
Sedona, Arizona consistently ranks in the top destination locations for people all around the world. Tucked into towering red rock cliffs, its proximity to the Grand Canyon, Sonoran Desert, San Francisco Peaks, and so much more make it the prime base camp for once-in-a-lifetime destinations. Creating a workspace where you’re surrounded by the positive energy of gorgeous rocks will absolutely motivate you when it comes to conference calls and meeting deadlines. Then when the work is done, the play can begin. Hike right out your front door. Spend your days off exploring the bounty Arizona has to offer, from hiking the Grand Canyon, exploring Snowbowl Ski Resort, 4-wheeling through the saguaro cactus, or enrolling in an enrichment retreat that meets in some of Sedona’s best kept secret locations.
When it comes to your workday, you’ll find the comforts of your house for rent in Sedona far exceed your expectations. Finally, a break room that’s not cluttered with stuff, and no one’s going to steal your delicious leftovers from last night’s dinner. With a fully equipped kitchen, you can keep all of your favorite food staples on hand, meal prep for the week, or simply compete (with yourself) in a new-food challenge, where you support local and single-handedly keep all the unique restaurants in business. With easy access to trails right outside your front door, you can maximize your work breaks by getting some luscious fresh air and soaking up vitamin D. When it comes time to call it night, the quality bedding will call your name and have you waking up refreshed every morning, ready to start a workday you actually feel lucky to be a part of.
Create a Holistic Approach to Work
While you may not be able to escape the Zoom conference calls and necessary deadlines, there’s no reason you shouldn’t feel completely relaxed and in control, while you work. Set up a workspace that works for you. With high-speed Wi-Fi present throughout all of our Arizona vacation rentals, you can opt to stand at the kitchen counter to move and stretch while you work or perch a front of the windowsill just like the Arizona cardinal birds you see outside. Visit one of Sedona’s premiere mystical shops for an assortment of healing stones, crystals, candles, and locally made crafts to create a work environment custom-tailored to suit your needs.
Keep the fridge stocked with all the foods and beverages you need to fuel your body and keep your brain on task. This is easy with so many culinary delights scattered throughout Sedona. Head to Whole Foods, where you’ll find a plethora of delicious food staples to stock your vacation home pantry. Bonus: they also provide a huge salad bar and deli options so you can cut down on food prep time and simply enjoy your surroundings. When you’ve got a lunch break, treat yourself to Berry Divine Acai Bowls, Fresh & Natural Thai Kitchen, or Pisa Lisa for delectable Italian dishes that include fresh gelato.
Work Hard, Play Hard
Hike. Bike. Rock climb. Cliff jump. Swim in the natural rock slides. Go on an off-road adventure. Schedule a helicopter tour. Wine tasting. Art collecting. Kayaking. The possibilities are endless. There is no wrong way to spend your time off of work, but in case you need a little kickstart, we recommend you start here:
Hike Fay Canyon. Located 2.5 miles west of Sedona, this easy hike is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the red rock formations while tackling minimal elevation gain. The scenery here includes towering red sandstone walls and a natural arch, which is the perfect introduction to the epic views available in the Sedona area while you break in those hiking boots.
For the best Cathedral Rock views, head to Red Rock State Park. If it’s a hot day, bring your swim gear and cool off in the natural rock slides. But even if the weather isn’t conducive to swimming, you can still find a red rock boulder to perch atop, enjoying a picnic with the majestic rock formations to keep you company.
