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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Great Size for Our Large Group
This house was almost perfect for our group of 6 couples. It was the largest house we found in the area to allow us to stay together with private baths. The biggest problem was we had planned to use the full size bed in the kids room for the 6th couple, but we were unaware of the weight limit on all of the beds in that room which made it unusable for 2 medium size adults. They ended up putting the full size mattress on the floor and sleeping there. Otherwise the house was very comfortable and well stocked. After reading previous reviews, we took extra towels and toilet paper so we had enough.
PROS: comfortable, clean, quiet and convenient to Grand Canyon (1 hour), Sodona (75 minutes) and Flagstaff, (40 minutes) room for a large party to spread out and have privacy but common areas fit large groups to gather
CONS: kids room beds are only for people under 120 lbs so doesn't work for average adults, oven is very slow to preheat
Lovely home. Great hospitality.
The house was lovely and quite comfortable for our party of 15 (8 adults and 7 teenagers). There kitchen was well appointed. The rooms were all very cozy and warm. The house was generally clean when we arrived. Overall, it was a good stay and a good location for our group. We traveled to the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest National Park, Meteor Crater and Sedona during our 6 day stay.
Weekend in Williams
We had 7 of us (3 adults, 4 children). Williams actually has a lot to do. Bearizona is not to be missed!! It was fantastic! We also visited the Deer Farm which was fun but doesn't compare to Bearizona. If you only have to pick one, Bearizona is the clear choice. Kicks is a great restaurant. The house was good for us. My only complaint is that the owner doesn't provide enough towels, toilet paper or trash bags. Everything else was great!
Great Place for a large family
We had a wonderful time with our family. The many king sized beds and separate bathrooms worked very well for the married couples and the cousins enjoyed the kid room both on the second and third floor. I would love to have access to more cooking supplies, such as a crock pot, electric skillet and mixing bowls. We also would have liked to have access to the laundry facilities. We survived this year without the use of such, but with children in the mix and if there was snow, there would have been a greater need for the washer and dryer to clean and dry wet clothing from snow play.
All in all we had a great time, would rent this again and recommend the place to others. Thank you Michael, for opening up your place to us.
We had our family Christmas there and it couldn’t have been any better.. the house was beautiful and clean..
