Sedona is one of the most beautiful places in the world and is most definitely our favorite town, as we are surrounded by red rocks, psychic vortexes, and a landscape that is magical and peaceful. In the summer months, however, the temperatures do have a tendency to climb pretty high, so if you are planning a summer escape, there is one thing you will probably want to make sure your vacation rental provides: a pool! Stay Sedona understands the importance of a cool dip on the hottest days of the year, and many of our homes don’t just offer comfort and style, they also feature crystal clear pools in their fenced-in backyards, making our Sedona rentals with a pool the only places you will want to stay!

The Temperatures Rise and the Prices Fall
When the summer months roll around each year, the tourist population drops, as do the prices in the shops and restaurants that dot the landscape. This is the time of year when the residents come out to play, enjoying streets that are quieter than normal because they know the secret to staying cool. A big body of water found in many of their backyards is the key, and because you took our advice to book Sedona vacation rentals with pool areas, you get to enjoy one as well! Waking up early for a quick swim helps prepare your mind, body, and soul for a day of Sedona explorations, but that’s not the only advantage. Offering the opportunity for pool parties and barbecues and the continuing practice of swan dives and cannonballs, the entertainment factor cannot be overlooked!
The lazy days of summer shine brighter when the “cologne” you wear is actually the scent of chlorine used to keep the pool clean and sanitary! The even lazier nights will be made even more special when you discover the joys of swimming under the stars. Serving dual purposes, the water cools your core, allowing for a night of comfortable sleep, but the magic of floating under velvety dark skies in waters that are just the right temperatures will sell you on the advantages to having a pool in your own space! Returning to real life and the stack of work awaiting you won’t seem as stressful after a time spent in our Stay Sedona magical escapes, and if you start planning for a pool of your own, your reentry will shine even brighter!
Summer isn’t the Only Swimming Season
Although the temperatures can drop rapidly in the winter months, by the time spring rolls around the highs range from 68 degrees (March) to 84 degrees (May), ensuring that swimming season starts earlier than it does in your hometown! While your neighbors back home are still shoveling snow and salting their driveways in late March, you can be basking in sunshine and salting the rims of your Margarita glasses, being sure to take plenty of pictures as you do. And as the leaves start to change color back east, our fall temperatures hover in the high 70s and 80s, allowing fall visitors to return home with a nice tan that everyone will envy! Pool season does last longer in the southern parts of our state, but we think being able to swim from March to November is a good thing, and when you are floating on a raft in October with the red rocks surrounding you, we are sure that you will agree!
The Homes Attached to the Pools
Whether you start the day with a leisurely swim or end the night with another dip in the pool, the comfort and style of our Sedona homes (the ones attached to the pool of your dreams!) are designed to be the perfect complement to your water activities. Air conditioning is an important part of the home during the hot days of summer, and as you spend some of your downtime watching the summer Olympics diving competitions inside on state-of-the-art televisions, you will remain cool and comfortable. Slip into your favorite bathing suit in private bedrooms that are spacious and tranquil after a long night spent sleeping deeply and discover that your morning java is not the only way to wake up your brain.
Fully equipped kitchens featuring updated appliances take the chores out of cooking duty so pool parties with your favorite traveling partners won’t be subject to boring sandwiches or takeout from local restaurants. Whether you are making your mother’s famous potato salad, whipping up a batch of your abuela’s spicy salsa, or are pressing together patties for an all-American meal of burgers, the food will taste even better when enjoyed al fresco, while listening to your favorite Spotify station streaming the music you love.
Damp swimsuits will dry quickly in the desert heat and if you get too hot, it will be no trouble at all to put down the burger and slip into the crystal-clear waters of the pool. Rinse off the chlorine in spacious bathrooms before heading out to explore all the fun you can have in Sedona and at the end of the day, whip up margaritas to sip as you float under the stars, letting the music of the night lull you into a peaceful state of relaxation. Full-sized washers and dryers are included in our homes with pools, so if you only have one suit and are planning on spending a LOT of time in the water, you can wash and dry your swim clothing each night to have them fresh and ready for your next day pool adventures!
Stay Sedona Is About Family
Do we offer simple luxuries and classic Southwest style in our homes and cabins? Of course we do, but it is the special moments spent with your family under the shelter of our homes that will provide magical memories you will never forget. Movie nights with everyone gathered around state of the art televisions, snacking on popcorn, and laughing hilariously at the shenanigans on the screen. Because these family moments together are rare, maybe the old fashioned charms of board games played at the dining room table will make your smile brighter. Many of our properties offer a selection of board games, just for this purpose, but if you can’t find one that interests you at home, remember that Tlaquepaque Toy Town has a great selection and since you will probably be spending at least a small portion of your time there, stop in and see what they have!
The kitchens of our homes are where you will discover your teen actually doesn’t mind spending time with you working shoulder to shoulder to create old family favorites to enjoy at your impromptu pool party. Secrets will be shared, dreams will be revealed, and for these wonderful moments in time, the closeness you took for granted will reappear. At night, when the sky is alight with the twinkling of a billion stars, reading one more story to the littlest members of your traveling party will be no hardship. Slip into the bed beside them, lean back against soft pillows and lose yourself in the poetry of Shel Silverstein, the zaniness of Dr. Seuss, or, for kids who are a little bit older, the magic of Harry Potter! And as you quietly slide back out of the bed, taking a moment to brush a stray lock of hair out of your toddlers face and pull the blankets tighter around their small bodies, you will know that choosing our Stay Sedona sanctuaries for your vacation home away from home was the best idea you have had this year—especially when you slide between the silky soft sheets of the master suite and fall into a deep and uninterrupted sleep. Tomorrow is still hours away, and your happy dreams are waiting to be explored! Our homes are built to meet (and exceed!) the needs of travelers who find their way to our doorstep and it makes us happy to provide comforts and luxuries you won’t find anywhere else!
Forgot Your Suit?
No matter how much we pack or how much attention we pay to what we need to bring along on our vacations, we always manage to forget something and if a swimsuit is that thing you forgot to pack, no worries. Any department store in the region will have the suit you need, but if you are looking for something to impress, Dahling It’s You, 250 AZ-89A, offers stylish options and includes hats, cover-ups, and sunglasses to ensure your tender skin doesn’t get burnt under the summer sun. And because sunscreen is important, a stop at any of our local drug stores will have the brand you love most, as well as lip protection and more hats and sunglasses.
Can’t Get Enough of the Water?
Slide Rock State Park, located at 6871 AZ-89A, is a popular summer attraction, offering yet another way to cool off in the waters that run through the park. Oak Creek waters have created a waterslide of sorts out of the rocks that lie under its clear depths and people come from all over the world to experience the fun. The water is really cold, however, even during the heat of summer, but it can be refreshing and fun to “ride the rocks” and maybe end your adventure with a picnic in the park. Water shoes are recommended and perhaps a change of clothes, so you and your family are not wandering around in wet clothes, shivering and with your teeth chattering afterwards. A hot beverage and a hearty Mexican meal at one of our local Mexican restaurants should warm you up in a jiffy, whether you are still damp or have already changed into your dry clothes.
