Lots of room, no AC, weak wifi, aggressive owners

  • 2 of 5

The good: plenty of beds overall, and the master has an absurd amount of floor space for either an air mattress or for kids to lay down sleeping bags. Also a surprising amount of cooking utensils, pots, pans, glassware, and dishes. It's tucked away and fairly private, backing up to the forest, but not far from Flagstaff's downtown.

The bad: The advertised jacuzzi was on its side, drained, and unusable. There is Wifi, which we needed, but it was slow and unreliable. The outdoor furniture was worn down and ratty. There appeared to be no AC, just box fans, which would be fine many months, but which got rough when temperatures hit the high 80's. rooms upstairs got extremely hot overnight, making sleep uncomfortable.

The weird: the owners were very rude and aggressive. Check in time is normally 4:00, but we emailed when we made the reservation asking to check in early, around noon. The owner told us the night before the reservation it would depend on when the cleaners finished up. The day of our arrival, around noon, I spoke to the owner who told me the cleaners had said they would be done around 1:30-2:00, and he would call when he could to let us know. We waited until 2:30 and went to the house. The cleaner was still working and refused to answer the door for fifteen minutes. She ultimately answered and yelled aggressively at my guests and I that we weren't allowed there yet. We tried to explain that the owner had said she would be done by 2:00, and she yelled that we were lying and of never having spoken to the owner. It appeared the owner had never spoken to the cleaner at all. The owner arrived and refused to admit he had given us a timeline for early arrival, instead saying he only said he would call when they were done. We were allowed to store our cold goods in the refrigerator, but then kicked out until 4:00, when the cleaner finally finished. The aggression of the cleaner, who may have been the owner's wife, was deeply called for and made my guests feel unsafe and unsettled the rest of the weekend. It was an awful way to start the trip, and we're glad we didn't have to have any other interaction with them for the rest of the trip.

Dream home...

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous! My family loved the property and wanted to make Flagstaff an annual retreat. It was a great size house for our family. Having the kitchen complete with dishes and cookware made the trip feel homey. The grill was also a delight to have. The rural location was amazing with the pines surrounding the property and snow-capped mountain view. The house was almost hidden but very accessible to Uber and taxi people. One complaint, a couple of beds were too tough for some family members. All in all, would definitely book again and recommend to others.

Great cabin and stay overall

  • 5 of 5

David's home and hospitality was great. His cabin is beautiful and well kept (we have stayed there for 2 years now). We had an issue with the light fuse in one of the bedrooms which he fixed immediately and he didnt even enter the house. He was even able to receive an amazon package for us prior to our arrival!

At the end of the weekend, my daughter spiked a fever and we were late vacating the premises, David was understanding of the situation and was able to accommodate us. I really appreciated it as a 2 hour car ride with a sick child is always tough.

At any rate, a great stay. Would do it again.

great property

  • 5 of 5

we were very happy with the house and location. we were two families with 8 people and the house was a perfect size. it had lots of amenities and a play room for the kids. we loved the area behind the house to explore and use the high for sledding. the owner is very nice and super helpful. it was clean and well maintained. we would recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a flagstaff experience.

Amazing house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is in the middle of the woods with walking trails close by, but you are also close to downtown so it offers a unique mix. Perfect for families - Dave was great and would stay there again.

Trouble with owner

  • 1 of 5

Although the house is nice and the neighborhood is in a more secluded area, the owner stays on the property in an apartment of the adjoining carriage house. That made us uncomfortable like we were being watched. He accused us of having a dog on the property. No one in my family even owns a dog. We had no animals with us, but he insisted we had one. Despite the weird situation of him staying next door, we tried to make friends with him. Then he posted a bad "guest" review because he was sure we had a dog. We have never had problems with a rental owner like this one and have rented several on VRBO.
