The Owner:
The owner, Jerry Gilden has been a resident of Sedona, Arizona for 30 years. Over 20 years ago he purchased this Uptown Sedona parcel of land and has waited for the property to tell him what it wanted to be as he blazed a new trail in the vacation home rental world by offering new construction instead of a home conversion. Jerry has served two terms as Sedona’s Vice Chair of the Arts & Culture Commission who championed the Arts in Private Development ordinance, which brought public art to private development throughout the City of Sedona.

Jerry's policy is to make himself available by text, email or phone call should he be needed for anything during your stay.


Located in one of Sedona's premier Palisades subdivision, this was the subdivision's developers choice for his private residence. It is located 1.5 miles from Sedona's world famous Tlaquepaque - Arts & Shopping Village.
