About Tim

I work and travel around the west, and am not home much, so make my home available to friends and visitors.

I also have a brick Victorian home in Colorado Springs that I'm restoring and updating to make into another vacation home, so that's keeping me busy the last year as well.

Tim purchased this house in 1998

Why Tim chose Arizona

I've owned the place since 1998. After living in Flagstaff for ten years I decided to buy this place - well built and insulated with 6' walls, double pane windows, big covered front porch and huge level back yard made it unique in the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

When you visit, you stay in my home - not a sterile time-share. The neighborhood is treed, safe and has quick and easy access to town and sights - whether Grand Canyon or Sedona, Anasazi ruins, volcanoes, live music/festivals (seems like almost every weekend).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well thank you so much Tim for letting us share your little piece of paradise. Our Aussie friends were thrilled with the accommodation as were we. Hope all remains well with you. Take Care.

Wonderful time!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Son and Granddaughter were visiting us from New York....Part of our plans were to go to Sedona, Flagstaff and onto Grand Canyon. We spent one night in this house on the way to the Grand Canyon as well as another night after the Grand Canyon before heading home...We loved it!! Was exactly what we were hoping and looking for! Very comfy, cozy...We have 2 small dogs (pre-approved) and they loved the fenced in yard that was covered in pine needles and pine cones....One of their favorite places!! The owner has thought of everything and all our needs were covered! Clean, decorated very nicely...Everything was perfect! Hope to get a chance to go back! Thanks Tim

Wonderful and quiet and so much fun...

  • 5 of 5

The property is wonderful as it the house, very accommodating and plenty of room. We went there to have some time in the snow and boy did it pay off. We had some snow left in the yard on Sat and then Sunday we woke up to a gorgeous snowy day. The fire place was wonderful. The yard nice and big. It was a wonderful place to stay without having to be in the confines of a hotel.. We loved it.....

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great weekend getaway at Tim's house! When there was no snow to go play in, we enjoyed horseshoes in the backyard, doing a puzzle and hanging by the fire. THE kitchen was well stocked and we felt right at home. Thanks, Tim!

A warm, welcoming place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with her parents for Thanksgiving week. It was a great staging place for a visit to Flagstaff, only about 15 minutes up the road. The house is well equipped and decorated. It looks like the owner stays there when he is in town as there are lots more utensils, etc. in the kitchen than usually found in a rental house.No problem putting on a full Thanksgiving dinner! The gas stove in the living room heats the whole house with the help of a very quiet ducted fan delivering the heated living room air to the bedrooms. It was down into the upper teens at night yet we were always comfortable inside. All in all, a great place to stay. If we end up in flagstaff again, we will definitely try to stay here.

I welcome friends and guests to stay and enjoy my home. Some personal things are at the house, so the garage and master closet are not public, but the rest of the house is for your use. All bed linens, towels, dishes, cookware, etc. are provided. There's often condiments and fresh food in the fridge, and anything in the cupboards you're welcome to use if needed. Follow the rule of 'take some, leave some, there'll always be some'. Watch DVD on the 32' LCD screen or listen to the stereo. No cable/satellite to keep you on the couch but there is NetFlix and Amazon Prime. I think you'll mostly get outside and enjoy the area. Dogs are welcome if pre-approved. An extra charge and/or deposit may apply. Undeclared pets will result in forfeiture of your deposit. Dogs are to be kept off the beds/furniture and out of the bedrooms - as a courtesy to other guests who may have allergies. Cats should stay home, sorry. NO SMOKING in the house. Use the butt cans outside - don't flick butts!
