About Barbara Brown

Wally and I have been together 32 years. We have always loved entertaining, cooking and serving others. We have been gifted with hospitality! So when the opportunity came up to purchase this home and remodel it, we jumped at the chance. We originally purchased it so we and our children would have a second home to enjoy and get out of the Phoenix HEAT... Being so supportive of marriage and family, we felt this home could be used to create happy memories for families, and friends. We have 3 grown sons, and 7 grand babies.

We are both professionals. Wally is an attorney and has been in private practice for well over 20 years in Chandler, AZ. I am a marriage and family therapist (Dr. Phill ;) in Chandler and have been in practice for over 9 years. We have traveled throughout 45 states so far in the US, (our bucket list is all 50) and have hit many states numerous times. We spend one month of our summer in Southern California OC as that is where I am originally from. We have traveled to Europe, England, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, and Italy. The Carribiean (x6), Aurba (x3), Jamacia, Cayman Islands, Hawaii (x3), Tahiti, Morea, Bora Bora, Mexico (x12), Cancun (x4), Cozmel, Central America, South America, Canada (west & east coast lines), and Alaska.

We enjoy traveling in our 40 ft motorcoach, riding our Harley's, contemporay jazz music, the arts & entertainment, spending precious time with our grandchildren. Our puppy Cachet II has more miles on her than I can count and she is only 4:) She is a traveling girl even in airplanes, and is a certified therapy dog.

In this photo we are at our beautiful Chandler, AZ that we enjoy sitting by the lake and watching the beautiful AZ sunset ;)

Barbara Brown purchased this condo in 2007

Why Barbara Brown chose Canyon Country & Northeast

I was born in sunny southern California in Redondo Beach and moved to Flagstaff at age 11. I grew up in Flagstaff during my adolescent years and enjoyed the four seasons it offered. Then moved to the Phoenix area at 24. Wally grew up in Pittsburg, PA, left after he graduated HS to join the service for 20 years. When I introduced him to Flagstaff he fell in love with it to. Flagstaff is centrally located to Phoenix, Sedona, The Grand Canyon, San Francisco Peaks, Lake Powell, Sunset Crater, Lake Mary, Mormon Lake, Lake Havasu, Las Vegas, and California.

What makes this condo unique

Activities in the winter months are plentiful. There are plenty of hills for the kids to enjoy sledding and snow play. In the summer there is a practice golf range and a full 18 hole golf course to enjoy, a club house with many amenities, adult and kid pools, gym facilities, hot tub, and tennis. All available to you as a guest at our home, with purchase of an activity card. There are many activities, wonderful restaurants, and numerous tourist attractions to enjoy in Flagstaff and the surrounding areas. Continental Country Club is located just 5 to 10 minutes from shopping and dining in the historic downtown Flagstaff, 10 minutes from the NAU campus, 30 minutes from Snow bowl where both summer and winter activities can be enjoyed. Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, and Slide Rock are only 25 minutes away. If interested in seeing one of the great wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon is a little less than a 2 hour drive. Continential Country Club is the premier community in Flagstaff. It is a lush and beautiful country club community and has a range of activities on site for both members and non-members. Non members can take advantage of golfing, hot tub accessibility, kids & adult pools, hot tub, tennis, activity centers, family restaurants, and gym facilities, fishing, biking, hiking, are just a few other activities that can be enjoyed on site. Flagstaff is a popular destination for skiers and accommodations are close by at Super Bowl. Ski shuttles stop in front of our home or you can drive to the lodge yourself. Great fun for the entire family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great stay! It was a beautiful and comfortable home. We loved the proximity to the pool and enjoyed dinner at the Country Club on evening. Thanks for everything.

2 Couples from Canada

Fabulous time at this comfortable home away from home. Everything we needed to recharge for our jam packed vacation to Arizona. Pictures are very accurate. We didn't use the local clubhouse or recreation facilities but they looked good. You will also find 2 binders on site with suggestions for local attractions and restaurants (pretty good - we left some of our maps etc for others to enjoy). Some of the attractions which we included in our 4 day adventures were: Walnut Canyon, Petrified Forest, Corner of Winslow Arizona, Twin arrows casino, Montezuma's Castle, Sedona area mountains/trails, Lava Rock National Park, Grand Canyon - ending with a fabulous visit to Williams AZ on our way to Las Vegas for a few nights.

Nice deck out front and on the side which would be well used in the warmer months.

Owners communicate well, instructions are very clear, place is well kept up and clean.

Strong recommendation.

Awesome Wedding Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Barb and Wally's beautiful home during the weekend of my wedding. We needed a lot of space and a luxurious place to host a rehearsal dinner. Their place was perfect! The spacious living room area and the porch were perfect for visiting right after our dinner. The booking process was simple, the home was clean and well stocked, and it felt like a second home. My parents loved it so much that they have suggested to me that we make it a yearly family trip to Flagstaff! We are definitely interested in staying again and would gladly recommend it to others.

Impeccable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed and Barb and Wally's wonderful home during our visit to the Polar Express and boy we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. First of all, the booking process was a breeze. The unit was stunning and had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. They thought of every possible detail! We did utilize the fireplace which was very nice because it's not cold enough to use ours here in Phoenix! The location was very convenient to everything. Barb and Wally, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We can't wait to go back!
