Exactly as promised

  • 5 of 5

Let me tell you about the first thing I noticed :the mattresses are of elite condition and super comfortable I am a big guy and was comfortable sleeping on the bed. Perfect if you're just sleeping there while visiting many of the local attractions can usually sleep two couples or one couple and one child if you're OK being crowded a little as for us we loved it the host were great and the dogs were awesome great value.

Nice neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely furnished apartment with a lovely deck in the back. Really enjoyed sitting out there. It is located in a nice neighborhood not too far from anything.

Very nice people; we enjoyed visiting with Anke, and the three dogs.

Perfect location and more than comfortable lodging

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this home June 6-13 to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. Flagstaff was a great central location to many of the sights of the Grand Canyon. Our hostess was very gracious about our late arrival from the Phoenix airport. We were introduced to their dogs the next day, and what a pair of sweeties. I must say that we kept up a pretty busy schedule. Day 1 we went south to see the sights of Sedona and visited the Lowell Observatory that evening (we actually got to see Jupiter and 2 of its moons through a telescope and the moon's craters with another). Day 2 we traveled west to Williams and rode the Grand Canyon Railroad to the South Rim and back (that was a terrific trip and reasonably priced). Day 3 we traveled northeast to Glen Canyon near Lake Powell to take a half day smooth raft ride with Colorado River Discovery (you don't need to purchase their lunches, since if you take the early morning ride, you will be back by lunch time and there are plenty of places to eat near their depot). Since we figured it would be a long time before we ever returned to the Grand Canyon, we drove to the North Rim and then back to Flagstaff. It was a long day. It might have been better to break that one up. Day 4 we visited Wuptaki and Sunset Crater National Monument. Don't expect any cell service in these areas. Day 5 we went to the 9 am worship service of a Presbyterian Church of America just down the road from our accommodations. It was a wonderful service with friendly folks. After church we went to Walnut Canyon. That was really worth seeing. Day 6 we went up the Arizona Snowbowl chairlift (which is worth the spectacular views, but dress warm) and had lunch at Daily Fare Cafe in Flagstaff (one of Anke's favorites) and the blackberry duck tacos were delish! Day 6 we made our way to Phoenix by way of Mary Lake Road and stopped to see Mormon Lake. Anke advised us to go this way, since the change in topography is incredible. The views were amazing and ended just before Phoenix with the saguaro cacti which we had not upon our evening arrival to Phoenix. However, the review is supposed to be about our accommodations, which are as they are pictured. The apartment was easy to find, very clean and we had everything that we needed. It was very private as well. We were more than pleased.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

I had a great experience from start to finish. The apartment is clean and very well kept. Both owners are very kind and approachable. I've never stayed at rental that is attached and worried I'd either be a bother or run into other issues. However, there is a lot of privacy and the owners answered any questions I had about parking (I was going to be out late and it was projected to snow). Also, as a solo female traveler, I felt safe in the home and neighborhood; I'd certainly recommend their place and stay there again! Thank you for your help and hospitality.
