Why April chose Grand Canyon Village

We were looking for a place to escape the heat in Phoenix. After searching several locations throughout northern Arizona, we selected Williams for it's charm and beauty. Plus, we loved the lush greenery of the golf course area and the nearby lakes and hiking trails. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You will be welcomed by the locals and greeted in a warm fashion. The town is very safe. Ponderosa Playce is a member of the Williams Chamber of Commerce.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed your home very much--I think it was our favorite out of the 4 homes we stayed in over two weeks. Everything was very comfortable, and the yard was excellent for playing in the snow. The washer issue wasn't a problem for us, it actually started working after Jim came by! He must have some kind of magic powers. We enjoyed downtown Williams also--we spent some time shopping before we left town Thursday morning. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks for having your home open to families like ours, it definitely beats staying in hotels. I'll make sure to leave a good review to go along with the others you've earned!

Great Location & Very Comfy Home

  • 5 of 5

When looking for places to stay while visiting the Grand Canyon and other attractions around Williams and Flagstaff Ponderosa Playce was a perfect spot. Comfy couches and bed along with an easy to ignite fireplace made me feel like I was at home. I highly recommend this location for anyone traveling to this part of AZ. In addition to the home being well kept, it was nice to jump on the bikes provided to take a swing around the local area and have a chance to see some of the wildlife.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home to see the Grand Canyon. Their were 3 couples and we found the home has everything one could need. The home is clean and well kept. 3 Bedrooms and 2 baths. Lots of space for adults to visit. Located just on the edge of town with a 10 min drive to route 66 downtown Williams. Good HI way access and about an hours drive to the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed our stay here. The owner is a pleasure to deal with.
