A perfect stay
We traveled from Surprise to Flagstaff for a soccer tournament and this house was accommodated our group perfectly. The kitchen was well stocked, the patio is large and it was great for having a drink in the evenings while enjoying the weather., it is conveniently located just a half of mile from the grocery store and only about 15 min from down town.
Everyone enjoyed it and Cynthia was ver pleasant to work with; she even arrange for me to pick up a few things that were left behind.
The only thing I would clarify is that the loft (5th bedroom) can only be accessed from the master bedroom and there are no doors to provide privacy between them. In our case it was not a big deal but something to consider.
I wish we could have enjoyes the hot tub but we were drained from being at the tournament all day.
Beautiful home and a great time. We’ll be back next year!
So glad you enjoyed our home and your stay in Flagstaff. We look forward to your next stay with us. 😊
I would like to clarify for future guests that there is a door that closes between the master bedroom and the 5th bedroom. The 5th bedroom is a fun kids themed bedroom/ loft. It does have a door between the master and 5th bedroom room, but has 1 open loft wall that is open over the living room. The access to the 5th bedroom is through the master bedroom and the door that closes between them. The door can be left open for smaller children, or closed for privacy.
Nice house with lots of space
Great house with lots of room to spread out. However, I will warn you, the master mattress really needs replacing. We were also inconvenienced by the heat being on 75 when we got there at bedtime (too hot to sleep) and the hot tub being on 89 degrees. We turned the hot tub up the next day when we checked it but it never truly got hot before we left (we had a short stay and the hot tub was the reason we booked this place). Good house but we had some disappointments.
Every guest prefers a different type of mattress for their personal comfort. Sorry the master bed was not your personal comfort level of firmness. Luckily the house has many different beds with different levels of firmness to choose from.
Sorry the guest before you had a different comfort level for temperature also. I also find 75 extremely comfortable to sleep at. The house cools off extremely quickly when the heat is turned down and doors or windows can also be opened for a short time to help accelerate cooling off.
As for the spa, you just have to increase the temperature and it warms up. As stated in the guest book, that can be done in the house or with the numbers listed in the guestbook because we can also increase the temperature from our phones.
The house was beautiful and in a nice neighborhood in a great location - well away from the RR tracks that can be a noise problem in much of Flagstaff. There was easy access to our hiking locations around the San Francisco Peaks avoiding the traffic around downtown.
The house has several levels with 1 or 2 steps. This provides great charm to the house. All the bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are steep. The kids liked going bump-bump down the carpeted stairs. These features probably would be a deterrent for the physically handicapped. All should be careful until you become familiar with where the steps are.
The microwave screen is very dim and was a little hard to figure out but worked fine once you figured it out. I also missed having a teapot to heat up water for oatmeal in the morning. There is a Keurig if you are so inclined but I improvised with a pan with a lid on the stove. Other than no teapot the kitchen is well stocked.
The dining table only sat 6 or 7 (one side is a bench). This wasn't really a problem for us since the kids usually ate earlier. You could have some eat in the den? area just down a couple of steps from the dining table.
It was a great place to come back to after our hikes and very comfortable. I believe some of our party used the hot tub during the day while I was gone.
Thank you! Just thought I would let yo know we have put in a brand new microwave and a teapot is coming.

Amazing Family Home
A fantastic family home located in a lovely neighbourhood close to local shops and the town of Flagstaff.
The home was very spacious, clean and had all the modern facilities including a spa,cable tv, excellent Wi-fi and a well equipped kitchen with cleaning materials for the dishwasher, laundry machines and bathrooms.
Linen was plentiful and soft.
We used all four bedrooms (5 adults) and everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were.
The outside areas had a large driveway and plenty of seating with a large gas BBQ in the back yard where we saw porcupine and raccoons in the evening.
Cynthia and Kelly were lovely hosts and always answered our questions via emails within 24 hours as we were in the U.K. They both provided helpful home instructions which made the whole booking process from start to finish a stress free experience.
This home is exceptionaly maintained and is in a ideal location to visit Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Tuba City and the NAU etc.
We would definitely recommend this property especially for families and we would stay here again.
Thank you again Cynthia and Kelly for allowing us to stay in your Home and making our trip to Flagstaff a memorable one.
Steve and family. United Kingdom.
Thank you! We loved having you. So glad you enjoyed it! I love that you are from one of my favorite getaways in the UK.
We had a very enjoyable time while at the Harris Home. The home was comfortable and fully equipped. The only thing that could have made the stay better is if the second level
I would recommend this location to others.
Thank you! We would love to have you stay with us again. We have also done landscaping improvements since your stay.
