The home is 2.5 miles from the nearest paved road and offers a lot of quite and privacy. It's clean, comfortable and a great place to relax when not exploring the south rim of the Grand Canyon. It's off the grid so expect to crank up the generator in the evenings. The batteries last a few hours after sundown but if you want the refrigerator to run all night and lights when you get up in the morning then expect to run the generator for an hour or two in the evenings to keep the batteries from completely discharging. The generator is well maintained, has an electric starter and is easy to start. We spent most of our time at the south rim and were glad to get away from the crowds in the evenings.
