Beautiful little solar home underneath the starry sky

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our 7 member family, plenty of room, well appointed, clean. Due to overcast skies needed to use the generator once and it was a breeze. Place is large enough for a big family, and still feels cozy. Owner sent all info well in advance and was hyper responsive, recommend highly. Very close to Grand Canyon and private enough to get away from crowds.

Great memories

  • 5 of 5

Getting to the house took us a bit longer since we didn't have 4WD and encountered many ruts along the way. Once we got there, we were in for a treat! The house had everything that we needed. Normally when we vacation, we stay off the computer and television so this was a perfect fit for us. My children liked the game room and enjoyed playing checkers. They also enjoyed exploring outdoors.

We learned quickly the first night that we consumed more electricity than was available. There after, we did fine with the power. It was a good learning experience for all of us.

There are beautiful views of the sunset from the house. In the evenings, we sat on the porch and looked at the stars. I don't think I ever heard silence like I did at the house. If you get up early enough, you can sit outside on the front porch with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise.

When we stayed, the temperatures were in the mid 80's during the day. Since we were out sightseeing at that time, we put the ceiling fans on when we got back to the house and opened up the windows. There was no need for air conditioning. There was a nice cool breeze going through the house.
