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.

Wonderful home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week in August and very much enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and location of the house. We took several day trips including drives to Sedona, Grand Canyon, Williams and Page. After our busy days, we were able to come back to the house and relax, enjoy the view and great weather. There was more than enough space for our family of four. Our teenagers appreciated having their own bedrooms and the Wi-Fi. The master bedroom with adjoining bathroom was spacious and beautifully decorated. We cooked several dinners in the kitchen and also grilled steaks out on the deck. The kitchen had everything you could need to make meals for a family or big group. We will definitely recommend this home to our friends and will stay here again if we travel to Flagstaff.

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

They thought of everything from plenty of towels and toiletries to an extra bag of ice in the freezer. The kitchen was great and we had a blast cooking. Was able to walk out the back gate and connect directly to the pipeline trail at the base of My Elden. Loved the basement with pool table and media room. Spent every night on the back patio around the fire pit. Literally one of the best houses we have rented from around the country! Thank you Mark and Lisa for sharing your wonderful home!!!

Perfect Five-Star Flagstaff Getaway for Families or Groups

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this rental so I'll just try to list all the things I would want to know about a rental, and explain why on each of these items, my and my family's expectations were exceeded on all counts.

The home was spotless when we arrived. The interior was updated and felt like a far more expensive property. Beds were very comfortable. Bedding and towels were plentiful. A pack and play is provided for little ones. Kitchen had all necessary amenities you would expect. And the downstairs pool table and TV room was well-used by all members of our party. The backyard is well-appointed with seating and an outdoor fireplace. It makes you feel like you're in a cabin in the woods and not conveniently close to town, like we were. The home is large enough to accommodate a big group but not so large that it did not feel cozy and home-like in all respects. Check-in and Check-out were easy. Communication from Mark and Lisa, the owners, was prompt, informative, and they were flexible with requests (e.g., my brother who lives in Flagstaff wanted to bring over his dog, which we had not notified the owners about; one quick call and a relatively small pet deposit later and the dog was welcome in the rental). I will definitely keep this on my list for future visits to Flagstaff.

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.
