Why April chose Williams

We were looking for a place to escape the heat in Phoenix. After searching several locations throughout northern Arizona, we selected Williams for it's charm and beauty. Plus, we loved the lush greenery of the golf course area and the nearby lakes and hiking trails. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You will be welcomed by the locals and greeted in a warm fashion. The town is very safe. Ponderosa Playce is a member of the Williams Chamber of Commerce.

                                                              We had a great time at this perfectly furnished home. The kitchen left nothing missing. Beds were comfortable and the yard was beautiful. The Kids really enjoyed the bikes and was easy drive to town and the Grand Canyon. Wish we could have stayed longer. One of the best VRBO I have ever used.

                                                              So very comfortable and well appointed

                                                              We spent five wonderful days at Ponderosa Playce. The house has beautiful views, so quiet and peaceful, we even had snow, and we had access to garage! no shoveling the car out! Saw a rabbit, coyote. Everything we needed was there and more. Very clean and comfortable.Thank you April, we would recommend your home to everyone and hope to come back one day.

                                                              Comfortable home, great location

                                                              Elizabeth H.Indianapolis

                                                              This was one of the best VRBO homes I've rented. We chose it for our family of 6 because of the location near to various national parks. The town of Williams was recommended to us and did not disappoint. But staying here was one of best parts of our trip. Very well supplied with basics, but add to that comfortable beds, extra blankets, kitchen supplies, room for us all to sit and watch a movie, quiet neighborhood, deer walking around ... it was a wonderful place and I would return in a minute! Thanks April!

                                                              We feel like we hit the jackpot on this one . . .

                                                              Linda O.

                                                              Our family LOVED this house! Everything about it worked for us . . . plus, the loving effort put in to fill it with tasteful, joyous Christmas decorations really made us feel welcome and in the spirit. The living room was perfectly set up for family time; beautiful master suite with walk-in closet and BIG tub; sliding glass doors behind the table in the kitchen gave us a lovely view out the back; they even have bikes in the garage to be used (though we didn't ride them). And the street this house is on is nice and wide . . . with a little golf course to walk on just across the street. It was close to everything we wanted to do, and easy to get to. And April, the owner, was kind enough to check in on us with a call to see if we needed anything. Definitely would stay there again . . . highly recommended.

                                                              Clean and accommodating. Worth it.

                                                              We had a great weekend celebrating out daughter's birthday in Williams! The house was perfect and had everything we needed. The house sits in a beautiful neighborhood with lot's of open spaces. We drove around in the evening and saw deer everywhere! We visited the town of Williams, rode the zipline, had a great dinner at Kicks as well as Red Raven. We spent time at Bearizona and the Deer Farm although we could have just lounged around at the house and had a great time! We would definitely visit again and highly recommend this location!!!
