Misleading Description and Dated Photos
The cabin is relatively quiet with minimal neighborhood noises such as barking dogs, children playing, car alarms, light traffic and the occasional jet liner. Unlike Flagstaff proper, there is no constant train noise. The owner is usually quick to respond to queries. The cabin will accommodate a large family or group. The # of bedrooms, Jacuzzi, TV’s, etc. are as described including lots of viewing/entertainment options. Internet and Streaming are adequate. Paper products, dish soap, dishwasher detergent were all well stocked. There are brand new high-end living room furnishings but other furnishing, the deck and hard wood flooring are worn. Some windows and all doors are missing screens so opening them for fresh mountain air is limited. The photographs of the cabin are dated.
There is a notebook full of tourist pamphlets and brochures with a brief instruction note on the front of the book. A ‘guest’ book would be nice. We have provided guest books for renters of our vacation homes. They include information found in hotel rooms, detailed appliance/TV/thermostat/Jacuzzi/etc. instructions and photos of the inside of cabinets, drawers and closets to make it easier for guests and housekeepers to locate and put away items.
The cabin seemed to be to be well stocked with kitchen amenities, small appliances and gadgets but the disorganization in every drawer, cabinet and closet made it difficult to find items. We had problems getting the worn Bosch dishwasher to function properly, despite thorough texted instructions from the owner. It sounds as if it runs a full cycle but when you unload it you find debris and grime on the dishes and in the machine itself with no water having run through. There is evidence of water leaking on the floor around the unit. We found dirty dishes and cooking utensils so you might want to check everything before use.
Cabinets and draws were dirty inside and out with old, dried food splashes and dust/dirt/grime/food debris. The refrigerator, freezer and oven were dirty. There was old food in the refrigerator, freezer, pantry and cabinets. Silk flowers, return air vent, window sills, blinds, baseboards, light switches and other dust/dirt/dead insect collectors do not appear to be cleaned very often so if anyone in your party has a respiratory condition there might be an issue. Calcium build up on multiple surfaces. Sheets and towels are stored on the floor of closets so be careful when lifting as
If you thought this review was long, you should have heard the phone calls about how to run the BOSCH dishwasher. Its the first time someone has complained about a dishwasher being too quiet.
A total of 11 phone calls, including one.. when the Jacuzzi turn on for its automatic cleaning cycle.
she asked if anyone had complained about ghosts?
Sweet, older couple.. but should NOT be driving. Neighbor indicated she (as her husband is incapacitated) ran over their trashcans 2 days in a row!!
Home is really appointed especially for larger groups. Neighborhood is far enough away from town to feel like camping but close enough to be able to easily access stores, restaurants, etc It’s a short drive through Oak Creek Canyon to Slide Rock or Sedona as well.
Owner/manager was friendly & easy to contact. Would definitely stay here again !
Great house for a family gathering
Nice house. Owner should do a better job in providing CLEAN linens and not make renters search for enough towels, pillows, clean sheets and pillow cases. Also providing wash clothes, and some coffee pods would go a long way in providing a better experience for the renter. Both coffee pot and Keurig need to be clean. Coffee pot took an hour to brew a pot and Keurig has heavy calcium build up. For me, the details help make the experience better.
Great summer getaway
This rental is located just a little South of Flagstaff proper, which made it great for driving in and out and avoiding downtown Flagstaff. This is not a remote location on acreage, but is in a residential area. The house was nice and had everything we could possibly need in the way of cookware and other household items. We only needed to bring food. We had a baby with us and the house had everything we needed for him, a pack-n-play, high chair, and stroller which meant less for us to bring. It also has a nice supply of board games which the 4 yo grands enjoyed. The water is hot, which is really nice for showers and cleaning, but watch your littles if they can turn on a faucet themselves. The outdoor accommodations were just as nice with a grill, fire pit and hot tub. We enjoyed our mid-week to mid-week mini vacation and would consider this rental again.
Clean, Quiet and Comfy
Great place to relax with friends. Everything was as advertised.
Spacious and quiet.

The photos did not do this place justice!
Amazing home perfect for our group, thank you!
