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 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 subdivisions, this was the subdivision’s developer’s choice for his private residence. It is 1.5 miles from Sedona’s world-famous Tlaquepaque – Arts & Shopping Village.


Instructions for accessing the property will be provided after the reservation is confirmed. Upon entering, you will find a welcome letter, keys, and other information in our welcome area on the kitchen counter.
