Luxury and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four of my former Marine Corps brothers had the opprotunity to stay in this absolutely beautiful home for the memorial day weekend. When we arrived we were taken back by the beautiful setting and the fact that the home was exactly how it is represented in the listing. The house is very comfortable and does not miss any of the comforts of home. The layout is nice and provides a great open area to include the livingroom, diningroom, and large kitchen, but the real beauty was the large private bedrooms with comfortable beds.

We found communication with the owners was very easy and quick. They were respectful and attentive, which really allowed us to just enjoy our get away. On a side note we want to thank them again for allowing us to use their home because we were declined several times while looking for something that weekend. I guess I can't blame the other owners for not wanting 5 marines in their homes, but I feel fortunate that it lead us to this beutiful house.

The town of Williams was very close, but far enough away to let us enjoy the pines and the quite forest we were searching for. The roads to the house are very well maintained and there is more than enough parking.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was a great pleasure to have you stay with us. Secondly thank you, and your four brothers in arms for your service. Our housekeeper said she was amazed at how clean the home was after you and your friends left. I hope you will come back on a future visit. You and your friends are always welcome. It was truly an honor, especially over the Memorial Holiday to have you stay with us.

Nice and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation while staying at this beautiful house. Plenty of room for kids to play and for us to relax on the comfy sofa. The house was clean when we arrived and the check in process was easy. Plenty of towels and blankets for everyone. Overall very good experience. We enjoyed staying at this house very much. We could not find any dish detergent or aluminum foil for baking. Since we had to go to the store for other stuffs, we just pick those up at the same time. Great location, close to Grand Canyon, Bearizona, Flagstaff, and Walnut Canyon.

The living area was roomy with lots of windows. The house was in need of maintenance.

  • 3 of 5

The kitchen did not provide adequate dishes, silverware for a large family, no hand mixer, no ice. We had most meals there so we were washing dishes more than usual. The front door did not close properly, the 3rd bath was very cold and the shower temp was lukewarm at best. So many of us were using the very small shower upstairs which had some issues of water temp from very hot to cold if you hit the faucet by accident. The house was in need of maintenance and general updating. Other than these complaints, we had a great time enjoying our family and the area. The beds were great, the fireplace outside, lots of room in the kitchen and living area. We played lots of games and cooked many meals and had fun putting up our Christmas tree. We hiked the Canyon, rode the Polar Express, and went to Bearizona. Enjoyed it all.

Tranquility Ranch is located in the heart of all the spectacular Northern Arizona attractions: The POLAR EXPRESS, The Grand Canyon Railway and the Grand Canyon are minutes away. Bearizona is located only 1 mile from our home and is one of our families absolute favorite! Sedona, a short one hour drive, has wonderful shopping and dining experiences, one our favorite restaurant being Dahl & Diluca. Williams and Historic RT 66, or the Mother Road, is a favorite and wonderful tourist attraction. Local shops and dining with great parades during Memorial Weekend and July 4th. Flagstaff, where you can ski Arizona Snowbowl in the winter or take a ride up the lift in the summer, is also home to the great NAU.
