We just returned from a 2 night stay at this cabin and we had an amazing time. What a surprise we all had when we arrived at Casita Bonita. The house is warm, quaint and charming and it has absolutely everything one could ever wish for. The owner is very thoughtful as she leaves all the essentials and niceties there for the guests. The house is very clean and the bedrooms/bathrooms are very spacious. The living area is fantastic with a variety of games, movies and other enterteinment options. The kitchen is very well equipped with high quality dishes and utensils and the cabin is very well decorated. We brought wonderful memories back and will certainly rent this cabin again soon!

Owner's Response: Casita Bonita is truly well equipped. We know our renters will appreciate numerous extras so we have supplied the cabin with high quality furnishings and an exceedingly complete kitchen. The cabin is the owner's own home-away-from-home so this allows renters to have a very special vacation experience in a fully furnished upscale home. Since January of 2008 Casita Bonita has been rented an average of 140 nights per year. We have been very fortunate because our renters have enjoyed and helped us to maintain this high quality rental property. We just recently began directing renters to the online review area to post feedback, so there are only a handful of reviews at this point. We encourage prospective guests to make a reservation today to experience this lovely vacation property for yourselves and to submit a review online.

Lyn acturactly described the comfortable cabin.

  • 5 of 5
Our two weeks were very enjoyable and comfortable at Casita Bonita. The cabin was well equipped with all we needed, especially the kitchen with all bells and whistles. We loved sitting on the deck, both front and back. The steps were not an issue for us, an elderly couple with an elderly dog. Golf was nearby and we enjoyed this beautiful course. Lyn was verY easy tO work with, and the property was clean and well maintained. The 4th of July parade was old fashioned fun. Flagstaff was convenient for shopping and restaurants.

This was by far the best vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Here are just some of the reasons:
- Lynn is very personable and accommodating.
- The house was clean and very comfortable, and Munds Park was quaint and charming.
- We had fun cooking in the kitchen with the vast array of spices, cutlery, and cooking paraphernalia.
- We loved sitting on the deck in the morning (with our cups of coffee) looking at the tall pines and listening to the birds.
- It was very convenient to have a rental stocked with paper towel, toilet paper, hand soap, and laundry detergent.
- We love to hike, and enjoyed hiking to Lake Odell - trail head was just minutes away.
Thanks so much, Lynn, for a memorable vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. My goal is to provide renters with an unforgettable vacation experience at Casita Bonita. I am happy to be able to provide a fully stocked kitchen with numerous spices and great cooking/serveware. Our housekeepers work diligently to keep the cabin sparkling and I make a real effort to ensure that the furnishings are comfortable, updated and of high quality. I agree with you that the outdoor space is equally special, and each deck at the house has different advantages. I can picture you relaxing with your coffee on the front deck in the morning sun next to the pine trees enjoying the birds. Hopefully you found the birdseed to put in the feeders! (If you had some summer rain, you may have taken cover on the large deck in the back, too.)

Lake Odell is a scenic spot to visit and it is conveniently located only a little over a mile away. I'm glad you could hike there and back this time. I do encourage you to continue to try other great local hiking trails on your future visits. Feel free to write your own comments about various hikes directly into the hiking books to be read by other travelers. Again, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and am delighted that it was so memorable. Thanks for choosing Casita Bonita for your summer vacation. I look forward to your return visits! Lynn

This property looks exactly as it does in the photos. It is extremely clean. There were a couple of small problems and the owner took immediate action to fix them.
We frequently rent vacation homes and can honestly say this owner is personally involved, includes thoughtful supplies so that the renter does not have to find stores, obviously cares about the home and those who stay in it. After one day there it is difficult to not feel like you are in your own home. The surroundings are spectacular. This surely is the very best area in Munds Park. It is a great "home base" for the numerous outdoor activities in the Flagstaff region. The one piece of advice that we feel we should give is that anyone planning on staying here must be able to safely climb steps and walk down to the street on a steep incline.

A wonderful week, home from home

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for us, a family of 4. Felt like a proper home - easy to cook (the owner Lynn has provided loads of cooking staples, plus decent cooking implements and great knives!). All the stuff you need for picnics and hiking.
Comfortable, warm (the weather was still chilly in the evenings!), spacious - with a fabulous deck that we used for breakfast and bbqs.
Lynn was so helpful and responsive, both before the vacation and during (we wanted to extend our stay by an extra day and she rearranged her schedule to accommodate us). She gave us lots of recommendations for things to do that would be suitable for the kids....hiking underground in a lava tube (the best thing ever!), visiting ancient monuments (Walnut canyon and Montezumas castle were great)...we also visited the Lowell observatory in Flagstaff - excellent. There are lots of maps and guide books at the house - we used these for choosing hikes in Sedona, Red Mountain, Oak Creek State Park (and swam in the creek - rather chilly but loads of fun).
And the house is an easy drive to the Grand Canyon. Which of course was stunning.
Lynn recommended supermarkets en route from Phoenix and at Flagstaff. And a great rest stop on the I17 at Sunset Point.
Best meal for us was at Criollo restaurant in Flagstaff - good margaritas too!

Overall it was one of the best family holidays we have ever had and I would love to come back - it's a beautiful area.
Thanks Lynn!

This was a great cabin experience!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was a cabin/cabin and just what we were looking for. The cabin is very neat and clean. We felt like were at home the minute we walked in the front door. The location was ideal for us. You are less than 20 minutes from Flagstaff, 30 minutes from Sedona and less than 2 hours to Phoenix. The cabin met and exceeded our expectation in every way.
