Our apartment is attached to the back side of the main house with a separate entrance through the single car garage. It is situated on a wooded lot with high Ponderosa pines in a quiet neighborhood. The small, cozy, fully furnished apartment has one bedroom, a living-dining room with futon sofa bed, bathroom with shower, sink and toilet and a fully equipped full-size kitchen with stove / oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave oven. Dishes, towels and bed linens are being provided. Cable television and wireless network are available. The use of our washer (60 °C program) and dryer is negotiable.

Guest will have first choice, though, if they have a preference for privacy. The apartment in Flagstaff is the ideal 'base camp' for day trips (tours guided b owner available) and offers an opportunity to take care of your own meals without having to go and eat out all the time.

We have two friendly family dogs - a long hair German Shepherd (7 yrs.) and an English Golden Lab (8 yrs.). They usually have free access to the yard during the warmer months of the year, but can be kept inside with the door closed, if this should be a concern for our guests.

Flagstaff - near the Grand Canyon and Sedona. Flagstaff is located in the middle of a prehistoric volcanic field on a high desert plateau (approximately 7000 ft.) at the foot of the San Francisco Peaks (12,633 ft.) and along the legendary Route 66. The city is also the gateway to the majestic Grand Canyon in the north. It is close to the Sonoran Desert, Sedona and the famous red rock landscape in the south. In the east, it rises over the grass and steppe landscape leading to the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest. To the west lies the Mohave Desert taking you to Las Vegas. The mountains of the San Francisco Peaks, with the four highest peaks in the state, Humphreys Peak (12,633 ft.), Agassiz Peak (12,356 ft.), Fremont Peak (11,969 ft.) and Abineau peak (11,838 ft.), are visible from quits some distance, no matter which direction you are coming from.

There are plenty of opportunities for shopping and guided tours throught the historic district with hotels hotels, court and prison buildings doning their original fassades. The historic train staton and a selection of restaurants such as the 'Galaxy Diner' (a typical restaurant in the 50's-style), the 'Beaver Street Brewery ', the' Flagstaff Brewery '(local breweries) will prevent you from ever being bored. The 'Lowell Observatory' (observatory, where Pluto was discovered), the 'Riordan Mansion' (manor house from the early pioneer days), the 'Pioneer Museum', the 'Museum of Northern Arizona' and many galleries offer a glimpse into the history and present day cultural life of this vibrant city.

Excursions, sports, culture: Lava caves, ruins of the pueblo and cliff dwellings of the indigenous people (Anasazi, Hohokam, Mogollon) like 'Wupatki', 'Walnut Canyon, Montezuma Castle' and 'Tutzigot' national parks and a visit to the 'Navajo', 'Hopi', 'Havasupai', 'Hualapai', 'Yavapai', 'Apache' and many other tribes, provide the interested visitors with an overview of original and contemporary lifestyles of Native Americans.

Easy, straightforward and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this little gem with our two young kids for a long weekend. The property was well-equipped with everything we needed for our stay, eliminating our compulsion to overpack "just in case" items like spices, hairdryer, travel cups and coffee. The beds were comfortable and the unit was very clean and private. The special touches like mini German chocolates and assortment of guidebooks were much appreciated. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you!!!

Flagstaff Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at Anke place in Flagstaff. We chose Flagstaff because it was central to all the places we wanted to go and see. Anke & Brian were great for helping us decide where to go sight seeing. There accommodations that they provided were super. We had everything we could possibly need. The bed was very comfortable as well was the futon that my daughter slept on. We basically made breakfast there in the morning and then set out on out journey. We had supper out but it was equipped to cook all meals, we were just to tired after a full day. We will definitely get in touch with Anke if we get back that way. It was very enjoyable. Thanks Anke & Brian. Look forward to next time, Jason & Ashley

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

This place is just wonderful. A clean, cozy and comfortable little gem in a quiet neighborhood. It's the perfect location for visiting landmarks in the area: Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Oak Creek Canyon, Walnut Canyon, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Canyon de Chelly, and the list could go on and on.

Anke is like a human library, very knowledgeable about all the places worth visiting.

I can honestly say this was our best vacation ever, and Anke deserves part of the credit.

Thank you!

Excellent Stay for an Excellent Price

  • 4 of 5

My kids & I stayed here while attending Northern Arizona University Freshman Orientation. Great location- very close to NAU & restaurants. The apartment is clean, organized & has everything you need. The owners are very friendly & ready & willing to share pointers about the area. We'll definitely be back whenever we're in town & will recommend it to our friends.
