About Ken Gatt

My family and I have been coming to Flagstaff for decades. Living in Phoenix AZ since 1971, getting up to Flagstaff to beat the heat or have a ski/mountain retreat have created some of our best memories. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy the easy access to hiking and biking (both road and mountain) trails. I am 49 and wife is 43 (25 in my eyes), we have daughters that are 9 and 11 years old.

Ken Gatt purchased this house in 2009

Absolutely perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of extended family, and this house was perfect. It was spacious as well as beautiful. It was private enough for us to enjoy the deck and views, but close enough to town and centrally located for attractions and activities. We enjoyed cooking in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen (top of the line appliances) and on the nice grill on the deck. There was even games, toys, movies, and a high chair, pack-n-play, and backpack carrier for the kids. The playhouse was a big hit! Ken provided excellent communication and was very accommodating. You will not be disappointed with this property!

Beautiful Flagstaff home-perfect for a Grand Canyon/Sedona home base

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed your home in Flagstaff…wow…it is so pretty. It was perfect for the needs of our three families. We were able to take day trips to the Grand Canyon and to Sedona…both were incredible. And then we built in “down” time at the house in between the day trips. It was so nice to sit on your patio (an adult favorite) and to see the kids enjoying the tire swing, the ping pong table AND the chess table. Those amenities definitely set you apart from other homes. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfy. The kitchen is well stocked!

This place was EXACTLY what we were looking for. Right off the highway, 65 miles from the Canyon, 45 miles from Sedona, and right around the corner for the Ski Mountain. We were able to do everything we wanted during the day, and enjoy this place at night. It's clean, spacious, welcoming, perfect for a 4 day get away. The owner was extremely helpful and generous too. I would recommend this place to anyone making a trip to Flagstaff AZ

Best place to stay in Flagstaff!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this remarkable home in Flagstaff! Just like last year, it did not disappoint. Last year, there was two families and this year there were three families and we still had plenty of room. We were a party of 14, with 6 adults and 8 young children. It is so close to the Wing Mountain Snow Play area and to Snowbowl. It is nestled in a quaint and quiet residential area. The location couldn't be better. The house is amazing as well. There are two master bedrooms that are enormous. The house is supplied with all the kitchen items you need to make cooking at home so convenient. Ken is great and really tries to make your stay there as memorable as possible. He is very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Flagstaff Home w/ perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Flagstaff. This was the perfect home for our family. We loved that we were in between Flagstaff and Snowbowl. We were only a few miles from the mountain for skiing during the day and we were close to town to go eat at restaurants in Flagstaff at night. The house is in excellent condition. There was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen and family room is perfect to hang out and watch TV/play games. There is a great deck to enjoy the outdoors and the kids loved the backyard. The owners were excellent and made sure that we had the perfect vacation. We would recommend this home to anyone. We would absolutely stay here again.
