Overview

Parks House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Loft - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 14)

Set in 5 acres of tall timber, this Park's home offers rustic elegance, comfort and absolute tranquility. A visitor would never know they were only minutes away from Flagstaff, restaurants and city activities. Choose from the night-life of Flagstaff or the adventures of the Grand Canyon (that is only a 55 minute drive!) , mountain biking, skiing or any number of outdoor activities within minutes of this beautiful retreat.This 2500 square foot home features a master suite, 4 bedrooms, a loft and 2 bathrooms. A supplemental wood burning stove adds that cozy touch while a family, or group of friends are nestled in for a late night home movie in this beautifully appointed Casa. The loft is great for kids and the covered porch, just off the living room, is great for BBQ's, boisterous conversations, relaxing evenings....Or just watching the wildlife. You are in the woods! The property backs up against 500 acres of Coconino National forest, so the only unexpected guests will be the deer,elk and eagle.

Snow play park off of Route 66 : 5 minutes away is a state park for kids to play in the snow, they have small runs for sledding and sliding etc. Anything you can think of to do in the snow. Great time for the family. Tubing year round at Elk Ridge Ski area.

Tubing in Williams, AZ : 12 minutes away is Williams, AZ 'Gateway to the Grand Canyon' and it has a small ski slope but half of the ski slope is used for tubing (year round) and it is a blast.

About Malcolm Giles

If you are a kind person I will give your family a discount. I take my job very serious and I want our guest to feel very comfortable. I will go out of my way to help them have an enjoyable visit. I love sharing my special place/home with guest. 99.9% love the experience.

Malcolm Giles purchased this house in 1999

Why Malcolm Giles chose Arizona

Wanted time away from the busy 'Valley of the Sun' time to relax and rejuvenate one soul and time to enjoy nature. Time to live in the now and be present to myself. The fun part now is I can share these moments with our wonderful guest.

What makes this house unique

No one is around, you are alone in the woods and you will not see anyone else while you are there. Why not get away from the crowds. I promise you will not want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to vacation and get out of the valley. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We enjoyed rain storms, fresh air and relaxed. We didn't see any animals but it was nice stop between the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Williams. Which we were able to visit all due to the wonderful location of the cabin. Very peaceful, love the location, cabin had everything you could need. Plenty of water, lines, dishes and utensils, etc. Thank you for letting us use the garage to put ours in to keep animals away. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay.

Ideal!

What a fantastic stay! We came as a company of actors who needed a home for a weekend while doing a show in Flagstaff, and the cabin environment was so relaxing and invigorating. The property was beautiful and welcoming--highly recommended!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this cabin! Easy to get to with plenty of space. The property is spacious and secluded but very close to all the amenities of Flagstaff. This cabin is well maintained and had everything we were looking for. I would recommend to anyone!

Happy Stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean cabin. Got to see elk in the evening. We had fun at the Deer Farm and enjoyed dinner in downtown Williams at the Italian Bistro. Would recommend this place to friends and family.

great property and home

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a wonderful experience. The property/area was wonderful and the house was really nice too. there were just a few issues that would have made it even better.The shower heads were not the best and having kids with us, hand held shower heads would have been nice to have. The mattresses were alright but mattress pads would have been better on them to add some softness. A couple of the screens were broken and let in bugs as we opened the windows cuz it was warm when there. A broken plastic outside chair caused one of my grandkids to get pinched. It should be replaced. Because we were there when it was hot, the large room over garage got really warm so maybe a portable or window air conditioner would help. I'm just mentioning this as we had two/four year olds with us that needed naps. But overall, we had a lovely time.

Great location, plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a few different VBO locations. This could be our favorite. We are a family of 6 (children 17, 15, 13 and 9). We love staying in VBO and then taking day trips to various locations. This cabin was perfect for us. We were able to get easily to Sedona, Flagstaff, Williams and of course the Grand Canyon. The kids were thrilled that they all got their own room. There was a separate "bachelor pad" for my 15 year old son above the garage. The kitchen is fully stocked. There is plenty of seclusion from others, which is a plus. For those that still have to check in to civilization the wifi is good. We were there in the summer time and the weather was perfect, a much needed relief when you are coming from Phoenix.

Great location -- plenty of room. Perfect family vacation.

Relaxing cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

This was the ideal get away for our parents' 40th anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the cabin and all of it's rustic charm. It is literally in the middle of the Coconino woods so you may get lucky and see some deer or elk in the early morning. The house was spacious and comfortable with plenty of space for our family. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a nice getaway.

There is plenty of space to park an RV, boat or any tow-alongs. The spacious 2 car garage is available to all guests wishing to put vehicles in for the night. And of course....The full kitchen is equipped with everything a vacationer would need. The great room is large enough for some 'private space' and a fantastic gathering area to socialize and interact with family and friends.
