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 Flagstaff

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.

Great Pet-Friendly Home Down to the Last Detail

  • 5 of 5

I will echo the sentiments of all of the other wonderful reviews for this property. You can't go wrong here. Our family loved it here. It's especially pet-friendly, with a fenced-in yard and pet dishes provided. I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail, with excellent instructions for every television, the A/C, the fire pit, etc. Mark and Lisa were very quick to respond to any inquiries. The day we checked out, we received notification from them that our security deposit was being refunded. I've stayed in many vacation rental properties, and this is the first time that I can recall that anybody had ever been that quick to inform us of that. I thought it was a great courteous touch. Thank you.

Great location, nicely furnished, and plenty of room for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying at this home! Mark, the owner, was very responsive and made the whole process of renting simple. We were very impressed with the home. Our group spent several nights playing pool and enjoying the deck. Every morning we'd go for a walk from the trails right out the back gate. We cooked at home for several meals and found this house to have everything we needed. The location was great for easy access to the highways. We loved it and hope to come back again soon!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was enhanced by staying in this comfortable, clean and beautiful home. No detail was forgotten in preparing for every need that might come up.

We enjoyed the views, the fire pit, and overall ease of having many guests, but space to match. Love it!

Coconino Horse Trials Officials

  • 5 of 5

All my officials enjoyed staying in your house. They were happy with the rooms, beds and bedding. they are looking forward to staying again in July. The dog liked walks in the forest, and liked the fact you had clean up tools as well. they did not stay during the day as they were working at the Horse trials at the fair grounds. loved that you had internet.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. In response I'll just point out that we do have 7 actual individual beds as advertised. 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Full, and 4 Twin (consisting of 2 bunk beds). We also have a Queen blow up bed and 2 Twin blow up beds at the property at all times. We have diligently tried to portray our property as accurately as possible on our VRBO listing and we highly encourage all our potential guests to ask if they aren't sure about an amenity or have special requirements of any kind.

Car: necessary

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.
