Perfect for a Family Trip
We recently spent a few days at this home and it was wonderful!
It is very well appointed with lots of space, modern appliances and is in a great location. We were very comfortable there, such a nice place to come back to after long days at the Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest. My family really enjoyed the rec room, playing pool and relaxing in front of the big screen TV. It was so nice to be able to bring our Labrador Retriever with us, it made our trip complete.
I had some communications with Mark while we were there and he is such a thoughtful and considerate owner. He wants to make sure your stay at this home is ideal.
We would absolutely love to come back here and highly recommend this home.
Clean and fully stocked
We have stayed in over 30 VRBO properties over the past 15 years and this home is in our top 3. The home is situated in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to all Flagstaff and northern Arizona has to offer. All the comforts of home were at our fingertips; it was apparent the owners worked hard to exceed our expectations. The home was clean and well appointed.
Nice house and Backyard
We just stayed for 3 nights at Swiss Manor. It is a nice remodeled home and well supplied for anything that you will need. We had deer out in the treed area and enjoyed the 3 levels so we could spread out. Highly recommend this home.
An Absolute Gem…!!
We’re so glad we found Swiss Manor for our family stay in Flagstaff! From initial contact to our checkout time, communication with (owner) Mark was phenomenal.
Fortunately, we found this (beyond) pet friendly property as we have large breed dogs. I had contacted a couple of other properties in Flagstaff but they had a strict pet policy of 1-2 dogs with a max weight of 25-30 LBS. Mark and Lisa’s flexibility and openness in allowing us to enjoy our family vacation with the WHOLE family as their listing reflects is much appreciated. We have a 13 year old Lab that has trouble with stairs but there is a side gate with access to the fully enclosed backyard a few steps from the front door which was a lifesaver for our fur baby.
The home itself… absolutely beautiful! Mark and Lisa left no stone unturned when they renovated this property and it was easy to get in the mindset of not wanting to leave this beautiful home to explore the town. The main level is an open floor plan with a number of windows allowing the natural light in. Within two hours of our checkin, we were shocked and so excited to see a family of deer (7) trotting through the trail access less than 50 feet away from the backyard fence (yep, city folk here)
The kitchen was incredible with newer large appliances and the most fully stocked kitchen I’ve ever seen in a short term rental. There are several small appliances to meet your needs for a comfortable stay as well. I even brought my own Crockpot and lo and behold, there was a newer Crockpot stored in a lower drawer! The home also has great water pressure and you get hot water unbelievably quick.
The downstairs gameroom was fantastic! There are two bar height tables that we simply put together with their seat stools and played board games after having a family movie night with ample sofa seating and plush blankets provided. It did get a bit chilly in the gameroom at night but the lovely electric fireplace on the wall emits a good amount of heat and took care of the chilliness. And, we certainly appreciated the surround sound system with Bluetooth capabilities!
Finally, regarding the owners and property information. One word: THOROUGH!
Clear, written and online instruction materials regarding the property were at our fingertips.
Thank you Mark and Lisa for sharing your beautiful home with our family on our 1st trip to Flagstaff and we look forward to our next stay at Swiss Manor!

Great place to stay in Flag
This house was the perfect place to accommodate our family of 7. Even being dog friendly was an added bonus.
The place is very well appointed, includes everything you need for a comfortable stay. Having a washer and dryer was very convenient. Large kitchen/dining area made it easy to cook in. Pool table and large tv kept people entertained at night. Very spacious with perfect layout. Would highly recommend, and would definitely choose again next time we are in the area.
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.
About Mark Engelman
I reside in Phoenix and have enjoyed many weekend trips to Flagstaff over the years. I bought this home and furnished it specifically to share with you! I have had wonderful experiences myself with vacation home rentals so it was a logical and exciting next step to get my own home listed as well!
Mark Engelman purchased this House in 2012
Why Mark Engelman chose Swiss Manor
I 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
My 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.
