This cabin will exceed your expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The positives: the cabin is beautiful, clean, well-organized and in a great location, there's even a bottle of wine waiting for you upon arrival. It's a cozy place loaded up with all your weekend essentials, including classic movies on VHS and DVD and plenty of wood to start a fire. The owner/hostess is extremely friendly and supportive. She got in touch with me right away and had plenty of details to share to make sure we made the most of our stay.

Possible areas for change: Guests are expected to clean the cabin and leave it as they found it (dishes, laundering sheets, taking the trash out to the dumpster, etc.), and charged a mandatory $85 cleaning fee; probably should be one or the other. The thermostat is programmed to not go over 72 degrees, but since it's located in the living room area the bedrooms can get a little cold.

The only serious challenge for me was getting in and out of the driveway, it's steep and tough to see backing out of and there was a full-sized fridge sitting at the base of it making it a little harder to navigate. Overall, I was impressed and really enjoyed the stay and the amount of resources for tourists they had on hand, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway!

Everything you need!

This house had everything! Lots of cooking supplies, including spices; comfortable couch and recliners and a binder with everything you might need to know from the owner, who was great to work with. Loved the wraparound porch and wooded location.

Beautiful Cabin With Anything You Could Possibly Need!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casita Bonita was so relaxing. Lyn has provided things you might have forgotten to bring...there were even pet food bowls! We enjoyed playing games, doing a jigsaw puzzle, and letting our dogs watch the squirrels eating off the feeder next to the deck. One night we had a fire in the fireplace and the next night in the fire pit. Wood was provided as well as marshmallow roasting sticks. It was cozy yet roomy enough for four adults. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. My sister and brother in law drove to the Grand Canyon one day while my husband and I relaxed at the cabin drinking wine and watching Netflix. It's in a beautiful little town and the locals at the restaurant down the road were very friendly. We highly recommend it, especially to those that travel with their dogs. We all felt right at home!

Work and play

  • 5 of 5

I find myself needing to be in the Flagstaff area for work now and then. When I do, I pack up the wife and kids and head to Casa Bonita making a family vacation out of the trip. Lynn's cabin is cozy, clean, well kept, and inviting. The icing on the cake is that Lynn is a genuinely nice person!

Casa Bonita is our home away from home!
