Detail:

Upstairs Master Bedroom is big and full of natural light with solar tubes, walk-in closet and direct access to upstairs bathroom. Large, comfortable, king memory foam bed with down comforter.

The Queen Bedroom is bright and welcoming and the comfortable queen bed has a black leather headboard.

The Peacock room has natural earth plaster walls that sparkle with mica when the sunlight hits them. An antique full-sized bed and dresser and brand new, comfortable mattress add to the charm of this room. A heated mattress pad for this bed is available.

Downstairs, the Kid's Room has one small twin bed and a bunkbed with a double futon on the bottom and a twin on top, a television with Bluray player and Netflix. The Kid's Room has been carpeted with low-pile carpet and a soft memory foam carpet padding to enable play.

The downstairs living room has a piano and a wood stove that provides cozy heat to the whole house in the winter (the central furnace works well too, if you prefer). Wood is provided for the first night of stay. The fold-out couch provides an additional sleeping area. There is a large, 47' wall-mounted t.v. and bluray player. There is no cable, but Netflix and Amazon Prime are programmed, and many movies can also be borrowed upon request. There is a newer front-loading washer and dryer located in the downstairs bathroom.

The Family room on the main level is equipped with a couch and chairs, and a small dining table that expands to fit up to eight people comfortable.

The kitchen is situated between the family room and the covered patio to allow access for inside or outside dining. It is fully equipped with both ceramic plates and a full set of melamine dishes and serving sets for both indoor and outdoor gatherings. Our daughter insisted that any vacation rental should have a waffle maker, so, a waffle maker is included. We live close by and are happy to provide additional cooking/serving supplies as available.

The backyard is our favorite part of this house. The previous owners had their own landscaping business, specializing in sustainable garden design and they made their own garden extra special. There is a cob pizza oven with granite detailing, a small pond, beautiful flowers in abundance throughout spring and summer, flagstone walkways and mature trees. The large covered patio provides a wonderful setting for meals and for relaxing in hanging chairs. The patio dining table seats eight comfortably. Pizza oven is considered an open flame and may be off-limits seasonally depending on fire danger. During fire season, the Coconino County website stays updated with local restrictions. There is a propane BBQ grill in the patio area as well, that can be used year-round.

The front yard has a small covered patio where you can relax or watch your housemates play basketball on the driveway. There is also a large blue spruce providing additional covered seating.

Foxglenn Park is within walking distance, providing easy access to outdoor recreation and seasonal festivals (Kite festival, Celtic Festival, etc.) There are soccer fields, softball, a skate park, and playground as well as access to the Flagstaff trail system and a running loop. Several mountain bikes and child trailer are available to guests upon request.

Also within biking distance is the Flagstaff Aquaplex which has a large indoor pool with a children's play area, two large water slides and a small lazy river. The facility also has a full gym and weight room, rock wall, and childcare available. Aquaplex daily rates are very reasonable.

There are two golf courses nearby- Continental Country Club and Aspen Hills. In the winter we can direct you to some great 'secret' sledding spots in our neighborhood.

We are long-time Flagstaff residents and we are ready to help make your stay wonderful. We have an 21-year old daughter and a 8-year old son so we can direct you to a wide range of fun activities available locally, as well as the standard visitor staples of downtown Flagstaff, Snowbowl, Sedona and the Grand Canyon. There are wonderful places to hike and enjoy the outdoors in and around Flagstaff. There is so much to do: Year-round First Friday Artwalks, summer movies on the Square and concerts in the park, Dew Downtown winter festival, Theatrikos, Flagstaff Hullabaloo, bands at the Orpheum, Pride in the Pines, NAU events...

We know a number of reliable college-aged babysitters that we can recommend upon request.

About Elizabeth Markona

Jodon and I both moved to Flagstaff to go to Northern Arizona University and stayed after graduation. Jodon is an Arizona native, and I grew up abroad before settling in this beautiful community over 20 years ago. We love all that Flagstaff has to offer-a small town feel with some bigger-town culture and diversity thanks in part to the university.

We love the outdoors-running, hiking, biking and exploring. We have a 6-year-old son and a 19-year-old daughter who is a freshman and lives at Northern Arizona University.

Elizabeth Markona purchased this house in 2014

Why Elizabeth Markona chose Canyon Country & Northeast

We chose this house because of the proximity to our home and the wonderful garden and outdoor space. We love the neighborhood and like being nearby so we can respond quickly to any unforeseen needs. While we got the place dialed in we stayed here ourselves and loved being able to eat outside on the covered patio, even during monsoon season. Patio heaters help extend the season a little further.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite features of this home is the outdoor pizza oven. We are happy to show you how it works and help get your pizza party started if we are in town during your stay. Tarragon and other fresh spices are available in the garden and make your pizza extra-delicious. We have had several pizza parties in the few months we've owned the home (it's important to test everything out, right?)

The waffle maker makes breakfast delicious, fun and easy. Let us know in advance and we can make sure to have waffle mix available for you.

Fox Glenn Park, which is within walking distance, is a regular site for festivals, soccer and softball games. There is a skate park, a playground, a paved running or walking path, and access to the trail system from the back of the park.

We had a great time in this lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our 2 families in Flagstaff for a swim meet. Very clean and was stocked with everything we needed...even robes and a salad spinner 🙂 The backyard was fantastic and the hot tub was the perfect way to end the kids day of swimming. We would definitely come back again!

Great house - great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great Flagstaff spring break!! Cute house with all amenities - loved the hot tub. We loved being able to travel with our dog. Flagstaff is a great central location for tons of day trips - GRAND canyon, Sedona, Petrified Forest, Tuzigoot, Montezuma's Castle and Well, Grand Falls and so much more. There were six of us, two adults and four kids and the house provided space for privacy and together time. Thank you Elizabeth for a great stay!

Super awesome radical place

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate and the hosts were very welcoming and helpful in all aspects. I definitely recommend the place and I am hoping to visit again soon. Also, the property is only about a 30 minute drive to the ski resort and a short 10 minute drive from the downtown area.

Not recommended overrated

  • 1 of 5

Wifi wasn't working. Deposit wasn't refunded because the owner claims that the house needed "excessive cleaning", whereas we stayed lets than 24 hours and we didn't party in the house. Even if you smoke outside you will be charged if the owner felt the smell inside. Just forget your deposit. The house is small for large groups and the living room is very compact.
