Williams House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths

Enjoy a weekend away in the 'Gateway to the Grand Canyon,' where you are within walking distance to all that Williams has to offer. Walk to fabulous restaurants and sightsee the many route 66 shops and galleries, or hike right out of the house up Bill Williams Mountain. Ride the train to the Grand Canyon, view wildlife at BEARIZONA, drive the south road to Sycamore Canyon, hike, or fish, and end your day in a relaxing home.

This Williams House has all the necessities for unwinding after a day of adventure, 2 bedrooms, bonus room with bunk beds & washer/dryer, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy fireplace, and books, games or toys to enjoy with family and friends in the evening. Wifi is also available to plan your next day & stay connected back home.

Williams is the shortest route from I-40 to the Grand Canyon, and at an elevation of just under 7,000 feet, it is a great escape in all seasons. The average summer high temperatures are in the low 80’s. Williams is listed in the National Register of Historic places as most of the buildings were constructed in the early 1900’s. Williams has an abundance of ‘things’ to do.

About Veronica

Williams is the place where Veronica grew up and after marrying began visiting family in the area more and more often. We would ski, hike the Canyon and surrounding mountains, or just hang out Family. After a few years of camping out in the living room, or renting a motel room, we decided to find a place where we could build memories with our growing family. In 2007 we found the house on 1st street and it was perfect for our needs. In 2008 we opened our home to others as we know first hand how great it is to find a nice place that can serve as an inexpensive home base with all the comforts of home for a family on vacation.

Veronica purchased this house in 2007

Why Veronica chose Grand Canyon

We chose the house on 1st street because it was within walking distance of all the town has to offer and yet is a short drive to the other activities we enjoy. The house is close enough to walk to our friends and families places for coffee and visits, or to go for runs or hikes right out the front door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Coleman,

We have enjoyed making this our home away from home.

We have enjoyed our time at the Grand Canyon and its so restful to come here, cook our evening meal - relax - read books, play games and soak up this pleasant weather.

Thank you for making this possible for our family. I hope you can continue to open your house to others. May God Bless you.

Older House but well furnished

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 days staying at the Williams House. Prior to booking, communication with Veronica was timely and easy. We stayed there with our 15 year old grandson and the accommodations worked very nicely for us, separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The house was clean and well maintained. The WiFi connection was very good. There are table games and extra clothing (for cold weather) and extra bedding. Williams is a small town with a lot of historical personality and Route 66 history. The local Safeway store is large and well stocked with food supplies. There are very few condiments in the house but plenty of plates, utensils, pots and pans, et al. About a one hour drive to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Because we spent most of out time at the GC, we did not get to experience the restaurants in Williams unfortunately.

Thank you to our hosts for their attention to detail and a well furnished house. We would stay here again.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The house was nice, clean, and very roomy. It was in a nice neighborhood in Williams. We stayed in Williams for our trip to the Grand Canyon. We had a great time in Williams. The town is nice and quaint. The welcome packet included the key and a travel book about Williams. Overall, we had a great time, and would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided at the last minute to take the kids to see the Grand Canyon over winter break. With only two weeks to plan we found this place in Williams and debated spending a good bit more on another rental further away from the Canyon that seemed (by the pictures) more inviting. But our budget came first and we booked this little place for us and our four kids to squeeze into. Wow, were we surprised at how spacious and inviting it felt on the inside. Our three younger ones loved the staked bunks and our oldest enjoyed the spare bedroom to himself. It is fully loaded with games, toys, movies, stuffed animals on the beds etc. The kids loved it. And having a decent size Master bedroom and bath was great for us. It was so great to have a place to crash, relax and call our own after a long day at the canyon. Hotels never give that pleasure. Many thanks to the Coleman's for a great experience. Would love to book again if we come back that way!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay here very much, It was terribly cold while we were there but all stayed very warm inside. We played games and watched some movies in the evening. Enjoyed netflex! The washer and dryer was a great treat. This home was close enough to walk down to main street in Williams to enjoy the food and drink available there.

Extremely comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I want to compliment are the owners and their excellent communication. The Coleman's are A+++ vacation rental home owners/managers and you will realize what I mean after staying at their home.

Me and 3 of my hunting buddies stayed at their home during an elk hunt and it was a wonderful treat to come home each night and unwind from a hard day. Having two showers/bathrooms made it convenient and quicker to get cleaned up and the kitchen is stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. The fireplace was awesome and the WIFI was a nice surprise so we could facetime with our kids/families while away.

While we were staying for a hunt, I have to comment on how nice this place is stocked with all the goodies for a family stay. They have toys and games for boys and girls and a ton of reading material for adults. The Netflix and amazon streaming tv was a nice touch too. Overall, this house has everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. Thanks to the Coleman's for letting us stay at your wonderful home for a week.

Merry Christmas to you and your family from me and mine. THANK YOU for your service for our country!
