About Mark and Lisa Engelman

We reside in Phoenix and have enjoyed many weekend trips to Flagstaff over the years. We bought this home and furnished it specifically to share with you! We have had wonderful experiences ourselves with vacation home rentals so it was a logical and exciting next step to get our own home listed as well!

Mark and Lisa Engelman purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark and Lisa Engelman chose Swiss Manor

We chose Flagstaff because it is an awesome town on its own with a unique history, great restaurants and shopping, but also because its centrally located to other major attractions such as the Grand Canyon and Sedona. With such a short drive to get there from Phoenix (under 2 hours), Flagstaff offers a welcome escape from the summer heat for 'Valley' residents like us. Flagstaff has many cultural, recreational, and sight-seeing attractions of its own as well, and with 4 distinct seasons it is a desirable destination any time of year. In winter, the snow and surrounding mountains provide many opportunities for fun including downhill and cross country skiing, sledding, tubing, etc. In autumn, temperatures cool and the foliage in the surrounding forests turns colorful for unforgettable hiking and scenic touring. Spring and summer temperatures make ideal conditions for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and sightseeing. Not to mention strolling the delightful downtown area or sitting at a sidewalk cafe and people-watching.

What makes this house unique

Our home in Flagstaff has several unique benefits over other vacation rentals. Its size, number of bathrooms, and number of private sleeping quarters makes it ideal for larger groups. In addition, the layout of the home over three stories with two separate decks in the back, a huge rec room in the basement and living room/dining room on the main floor, makes it easy for people to either gather together, or spread out into their own separate space if desired. The rec room with its 70 inch TV, surround sound system, billiard table, and convenient bathroom is a great area for socializing or relaxation. We love to cook and entertain so naturally the kitchen and wet bar are fully stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, and quality cookware for large groups. Furnishings and décor are all brand new throughout, with a fun mix of city and country styles. The back gate allows easy access to the large green space behind the house which provides a fun area for the kids to play (while you watch them from the deck), or for you to take a stroll with your dog. The trail running through this area leads directly to the Mt. Elden trail system, providing a great opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy some hiking or mountain biking. Treks to downtown are also easy and quick by car (just 6 minutes!) or safely by bike via the Flagstaff Urban Trail System bike paths.

Perfect vacation rental for large families or guests.

  • 5 of 5

In addition to being a spacious, well-furnished house with numerous amenities ( really loved the big screen TV in the fully-furnished rec-center basement!), this place boasts location, location, location! It is so easy to get to restaurants, gas, and grocery stores. And it is right in the middle of three different routes to the Grand Canyon! We made numerous day trips to national parks, national monuments, hiking trails, skii resorts, airports, art galleries, and too many other recreation spots to mention. Next time we will spend more time just to enjoy the house! We highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to enjoy the many activities this area of Arizona has to offer, and the amenities of the house itself.

Beautiful, spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous stay at Elden Connection! It's a beautiful, spacious home that accommodated our two families of four perfectly. The home was extremely clean and had all the amenities you could need. We loved the floorplan, it was so fun to have the game room on the bottom floor. Thanks to the owner, Mark, for being so responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Flagstaff.

Modern and upgraded home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at the Swiss Manor in Flagstaff. The entire house has been updated with new/well-maintained furniture, appliances, and electronics. We had lots of room for two families with 8 total guests. The kids loved the pool table and bunk room with TV and Playstation. The kitchen has high end appliances and everything you could need to cook meals. We've stayed at many VRBO homes and really appreciated having a nice set of sharp knives to prepare meals with! The adults loved the tri-level home allowing us alone time away from the kids. We took advantage of direct access to hiking areas. We will definitely recommend this home to friends and family.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home. Easy to enjoy and get around Flagstaff from this location. The kids loved watching movies on the big screen and playing pool in the basement. The owners are one of the best we’ve ever booked with. We highly recommend and hope to return someday.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two adult children (21 and 24) stayed 5 nights in November. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the rental property.The property is beautiful, the pictures really don't do justice. We had everything we needed. The guys really enjoyed the pool table too. The location is conveniently located to many attractions. We visited Grand Canyon, Sedona, Walnut Creek, and Williams--all within 90 minute drive. There's so much to do in the area with many great restaurants nearby. The owners were extremely responsive and welcoming. We recommend this property to anyone looking to visit the area. We would definitely stay here again.

This home is located on a friendly cul-de-sac street in the desirable Swiss Manor neighborhood of Flagstaff with close proximity to Historic Route 66, providing for short commutes via car to historic downtown (6-7 min), the Flagstaff Mall or a grocery store (2-3 min), many nearby restaurants, and attractions such as Walnut Canyon, Lowell Observatory, and Arizona Snowbowl. The Grand Canyon is only a 1.5 hour drive! The spectacular red rocks of Sedona are about 40 minutes! Northern Arizona University (NAU) is just 10 minutes away. And it is a 15 minute drive to the road that leads up Mt. Humphries to the Snowbowl ski area.

Close proximity to I-40 also means you can get in and out of town fast, without driving through downtown if desired.

Do you like to hike or mountain bike? The Mt Elden trail system begins just through this home's back gate for miles of beautiful Ponderosa pine lined trails and fresh mountain air! Nearby (~1 mi via hiking) is Flagstaff's most popular loop trail 'Fat Man's', with great views of East Flagstaff and the surrounding area. And if you're feeling up for it, take the 'Lookout Trail' connection off 'Fat Man's' and hike all the way to Mt Elden's summit! There are also many biking opportunities nearby provided by the Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS) bike paths, which can safely take you around town or downtown in just a few minutes.

Need to grab a quick bite or a gallon of milk? There are several local and fast food restaurants within a 10 minute walk from this home. There is also a convenience store within walking distance.
