Bedrooms 2
Space 1,150 sq. ft.
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 bathroom newly remodeled home near the heart of downtown Flagstaff

This historic remodeled home is located within walking distance to dozens of restaurants and bars as well as retail shopping. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, a laundry room, and a full kitchen. The counters are granite with solid maple cabinets. The front yard is fenced with a cute custom fence that resembles a flowing river, with a table and chairs for taking in the essence of the town. The backyard has a six foot cedar fence that creates a lot of privacy for the landscaped yard. A large hot tub sits in the corner and there is a large paver area in the back and a small patch of grass. There is also a garden with fresh vegetables and beautiful flowers. The house was built in 1915 as part of the original town site.

About Mark Giovale

I was born and raised in flagstaff, I grew up in a house a mile from this location and attended Flagstaff High School. My wife and I lived in this home for 8 years and would still be in it if our family wasn't growing so fast.

Mark Giovale purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Mark Giovale chose Flagstaff

Location! This house may be smaller than others, but the draw for us is that it is so close to all the excitement and charm of downtown. We have been so lucky to have lived in this home for as long as we did.

What makes this bungalow unique

What I enjoy most about the house is the ability to sit and look out the giant picture window in the front of the house and watch people walking by, to see the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood and to be able to relax in the glow of the sun.

The backyard warms up early in the day and sometimes I would grab a cup of coffee and sit in the sun warming myself from both the inside and out.

Within minutes we are able to walk downtown and stroll through heritage square, doing some window shopping along the way, and then grab a bite to eat or listen to some music at one of the bars.

It's also so nice to not have to drive downtown, parking is always a hassle, and sometimes you can't park as close as our house to where your going, so for us it is great to just walk everywhere.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

I spent last weekend at Marks home in Flagstaff and it was great. It’s a cool place that has been updated and remodeled, but also gives you the feel of staying in an original downtown Flagstaff home. The location is perfect. It was nice and quiet, but only a 5 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops. The homes also on a great lot with space for kids to run around a little in the backyard.

Wonderful Location and House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this little Bungalow. You are able to walk to downtown and enjoy all it has to offer. The house is wonderful and would recommend this place if you are going to Flagstaff. We included in our stay a trip to the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Lowell Observatory.

The bungalow is always a perfect home base when we are in Flagstaff!

Mark is a most generous host and makes using this property seem like you are at your own home. He even came over and shoveled the snow from the drive and front walk in advance of our arrival! It’s a quick walk to the best breakfast in town and so close to the dog park and downtown. I’m not sure why you’d go anywhere else. We will always use this property when in town. Fabulous!

Great place for our dogs (the Girls)!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our 2 night stay. We brought dog beds for the girls and the laundry room was the perfect bedroom for them! Great yard for them to romp around in as well. The amenities for humans were terrific, lovely kitchen and spacious living room.

Great house in an even better location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house with another couple for a weekend in FEB 2018. The house was nice and the backyard was fantastic for our black lab. Both nights, we walked and grabbed a few drinks and dinner. The house is in a great location!
