I'll start off by saying Rob, the renter, was absolutely the best "check in" experience I ever had at a vacation rental. From the moment you book the house, Rob provides you with a detailed email of helpful things to know (about the area, driving directions, different hikes, what to wear and bring, etc.) Goes to show how much thought and care he puts into ones stay!
The house itself is filled with charm and feels like home the moment you step in. Days were spent at the Grand Canyon (1 hour away) and Antelope Canyon/Horseshoe Bend (2.5 hours away) but nights were when the house came to life. We cooked healthy and delicious meals every night using all of the gorgeous kitchen counter. (I am from NYC so we made sure to use the large kitchen we never would have access to back home!) We made a small camp fire on the deck and made smores outside while looking out at the endless black shimmering night. The master room bathtub provided a quiet sanctuary while washing the day's worth of sun, sweat and dirt away overlooking the peaks. Many wine glasses were had, of course.
You are guaranteed a wonderful experience in the nature and I would not experience Grand Canyon any other way than staying at The Mountain Star.
