TERMS

We appreciate that you are considering our house, and hope that you will be staying at our house. We have had wonderful guests, many of whom have reserved follow-up stays for the next year after completing their stay at our house. We do want to lay out the Terms of the Vacation Rental.

RATES/NUMBER OF GUESTS:

Rates will vary depending on the time of year. Rates quoted on the website are for 12 people. For each person above 12, there is a $10 per person per night fee. You will be required to complete a guest list naming all of the guests of the house. If the number of guests staying at the house exceeds the number on the guest list, that is considered a material breach of the rental agreement and will result in an immediate termination of the rental.

CANCELLATION:

I very strongly recommend travel insurance.

If you cancel and it is more than 180 days prior to your stay I will refund 50% of your deposit. If you cancel less that 180 days but more than 30 days, I will refund 25% of your deposit. Cancellations of 30 days or less will result in a forfeiture of your entire deposit.

There will be no exceptions to this policy.

INSURANCE:

We do require property insurance that costs $99 and covers and protects renters for $2,500 in damage with no deductible. The insurance, in addition to protecting renters, eliminates security deposits.

ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE FOR SAME DAY TURNAROUND:

If your reservation results in a same day turnaround (that means another party is ALREADY booked for either your arrival date and/or departure date) then you will have to pay an additional $75 for cleaning. This is due to the very narrow window of time that we have to clean the entire house – 5600 sq. ft., 6 bd and 6 baths – and do all the laundry that is necessary (bedding, and towels, etc). We only have 6 hours to complete that, so my cleaning crew has to employ an extra person to complete the cleaning.

CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT TIMES:

Check in is at 5pm. We may be able to accommodate an earlier check in time, however, we will likely not know until right before your stay. In some cases we may know earlier. The reason we may not know until right before your stay is that another party may make a late reservation and want to check out the day you are checking in, and if that happens we need to have sufficient time to allow out cleaning crew to clean and do all the laundry as described in the above paragraph.

Check out is 11am. Again we may be able to accommodate a later check out, however, we will not be able to commit to that, likely, until the end of your stay. In some cases we may know earlier.

MINIMUM STAYS:

Generally we have a 4 night minimum stay. Only in the Polar Express Seasons do we have a 3 night stay. In high seasons, we have a 5 night minimum and for some holidays we have 6 night minimums. Please do not request a 2 night stay. In some cases, we will consider a shorter stay but we will have to include a charge. We will notify you of what that charge is at the time of inquiry.

About Michael

We are a family of 7. The kids range from 1 year to 18 years old. We live in Phoenix an wanted a place to get away in the Summer and enjoy the Snow in the Winter.

Michael purchased this house in 2013

Why Michael chose Williams

We are family oriented. When we get together we include the grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters and all the kids. In total we are 20+. So we wanted a property that could accommodate all of our families, and to so in a nice, comfortable and spacious house.

Up until we bought this house, we were travelers who used VRBO and Home Away to find getaway houses and cabins for our family to stay at. Some were great and other not so much. So we finally decided to get a place that was ours.

So we looked at many places north of Phoenix. After viewing several properties and then finally seeing this, we fell in love with it. It was formerly a luxury Bed and Breakfast, and had enough rooms and private baths to comfortably accommodate our entire family. The house was/is beautiful and very nicely decorated.

We loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. It has a warmth that you feel as soon as you open the door. We loved the fireplaces in the living room and dining room Its family friendly with lots of space outside for kids to run and have a great time. Our daughters and I loved having our coffee on the back patio while the kids played in the mornings. It's in a quiet location and yet close enough if you forget something it's not a problem to get it. The kitchen is nice and big and we all cooked together and didn't feel crowded. I would say the only thing missing was washer/dryer. The owner told us where the laundry mat was and it all worked out great. A small inconvenience but this house is worth it. It was a very special time for our family and one that not one of us will forget...well maybe one of us, he's just 6 months old.

Poroperty was ok.

  • 3 of 5

Some members of our group were not happy because laundrybfacilities were not available. Also, one of the bunk beds (lower portion) broke even though the person sleeping there was weighing less then the limit posted (he was less than 200 lb). Otherwise, it was ok.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that your party was not more satisfied with our house. Regarding the laundry facilities, that is something that the listing is clear – that the laundry facilities are not available. I did not receive an inquiry from you about the laundry facilities, and at no time did I inform you or anyone from your party that the laundry facilities would be available. I encourage all potential guests to thoroughly review all of the contents of the listing If any party has a gripe regarding the bunkbed, it would be me. It is clear from the photos that my property manager sent to me that the damage to the bed was from abuse. The bed has been repaired and is available for use by guests.

Pictures don't do this home justice!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home within walking distance to Williams. There were 11 people in our group and there was plenty of room to spread out. Kitchen is very well stocked. Rooms and beds were comfortable. Home has some nice sitting areas outside to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The only thing missing from this rental to make it absolutely perfect is access to laundry room. Would have loved some additional clean kitchen and bath towels half way through our 7 day stay.

Family reunion

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Williams, AZ, the town has a lot to offer. The property was very nice but we did have a few issures, for example: they did not leave enough towels/washcloths, dirty linen was left out and we did not have enough linens to make all the beds. We called and notified the property manager, he returned the call promptly and told us how to access the clean linen that we needed. This was a minor inconvenience and did not ruin our stay. This property has plenty of room for a large group!

A great house and location for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house! Scheduling our vacation with Michael was super simple. Michael and Alma were quick to respond to questions which made planning this cross country getaway for 15 people a breeze. The rooms were spacious and they had everything we needed. We traveled with 5 couples and 4 kids. The kids slept in the bunk bed room and each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. And the loft was great for my cousin.

The kitchen was awesome and allowed us to cook at lest one meal a day before or after our Arizona adventures.

Williams is a cute town and reminded me of Radiator Springs from the Disney movie Cars. Safeway was close, great restaurants and the Grand Canyon railroad which I highly recommend - our family had a blast!

We used Williams as a home base and traveled to Sedona (a little over an hour), Antelope Canyon (almost 3 hours north near Utah border), Flagstaff (40 min), Grand Canyon (approx 1 hour) and Phoenix (approx 2 1/2 hours). We didn't mind day trips and traveling in the car so we came home to the house each night - we were able to see and do so much that wouldn't have been possible if we had to move our entire group all over the state.

We highly recommend this vacation house - it helped our family make memories of a lifetime.
