About Nick & Lauren Barten

We love living in the Arizona valley with the change in scenery and temperatures only a few hours away. The mountain area has true four seasons of weather to enjoy hiking year round, autumn leaves and snow sports in winter for family time. This area is full of unique shopping and recreation areas including the Grand Canyon! This home is our family's home away from home. Thanks to Nick's experience in Flagstaff attending NAU, he originally purchased the home to later have it upgraded and opened to guests as he relocated back to the valley. With his mother's touch, Gerri has transformed the home to a comfortable, lovely rental that our entire family enjoys and yours can too!

Nick & Lauren Barten purchased this house in 2005

Why Nick & Lauren Barten chose Swiss Manor

Our Flagstaff home is an easy access off the freeway and located in a clean and convenient neighborhood close to the Flagstaff Mall and minutes from the unique downtown area. Being away from the busy streets with Mount Eldin views from the front and back yard, we are close to bus transportation and further away from the train noise. We have many favorite restaurants and local pubs we enjoy along with the seasonal venues in town. Autumn weather with a mountain breeze is a great time of year for a fall break. Winter sports are just minutes away with snow-making equipment at Snowbowl and sledding winter park. Spring and summer are perfect for hiking with cool mountain breezes and afternoon storms. Staying in our home can be for a relaxing get away or packed full of interesting attractions close by.

What makes this house unique

Fresh air and mountain breeze all year long keep us coming back to enjoy BBQ's and birdwatching in the backyard and relaxing on the patio with stargazing in the evenings. A quick walk up the street to the mountain trail gives ourselves and our dog the fresh air and pine smell break we love! We especially enjoy warming up to the fireplaces and enjoying a great movie. AZ Snowbowl Ski Resort is only 30 minutes away for our winter ski fix and our home is a perfect setup for weekend get aways or a family vacation any time of year.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of room in this house. Plenty of seating for eating as well as in the backyard area & patio. House comfortably held us and our 6 guests.

There is only 2 bathrooms, but we made it work out!

Kitchen is small (by my standards) but was big enough for us to cook meals for us all to enjoy.

The location is close to what we needed--about 10-15 minutes from the NAU campus.

Close enough for a day trip to the Grand Canyon.

Nice home to visit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here during our trip to the surrounding National Parks and Monuments. We visited Wupatki, Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Creek, Petrified Forrest, and the Grand Canyon for two days.

We were able to have breakfast and keep our lunch supplies in the refrigerator overnight. We did not cook anything while staying here as we were gone the majority of each day and it is vacation after all.

The beds were comfortable and kitchen and bathrooms were clean. We did go on a search for towels upon arrival since there were only a few hand towels hanging or in cupboards. We did find them in the dryer without too much thought about where they might be located.

If you have little ones that might need a night light bring one with you. Our girls enjoyed climbing the treehouse, though they did not get to spend as much time there as they might have liked.

Stores and restaurants are close by making it easy to stock up on breakfast and lunch supplies. We tried a few local restaurants and encountered very nice people.

We enjoyed having the additional space this home afforded us as compared to a hotel room for a similar price. Originally the grandparents were going to accompany us on the trip, but were unable to come, so it was just the four of us. Even so the space was nice to have and each girl had her own room with one to spare.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Nice House, Reasonably Priced, Conveniently Located Near Attractions, Shopping, etc.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this VRBO property with our daughter and her family. It was nice to find a pet friendly environment with a back yard the dogs could explore. There was also a tree house the granddaughters loved. Lots of snow our second day, so it was good that there were books and DVDs available to keep everyone entertained when they weren't out building snowmen or having a snowball fight. The wood stove was a blessing--quite cozy on cold winter evenings. WIFI worked just fine. We did have a problem the first night when a circuit popped--could not locate the fuse box, so no lights in a couple of the bedrooms and no WIFI.. Seems it was accessible from outside the home. The owners got back to us and my husband fixed the issue with no problem. It's an older home showing obvious signs of wear and tear from tenants, but clean and comfortable.
