About Will and Gayle Korbin
We are a family of four originally from the East coast who have been in AZ for more than 25 years. We have 2 boys with 1 in college and the other not far behind. We are big sports fans including the Suns, Cardinals, and Eagles. Tennis is our passion and we play lots of basketball as well. We bought our home to enjoy the outdoors as there isn't a day that we can't find something fun to do. We wanted to share our beautiful home with others who can enjoy the summer weather and fun winter activities and beauty. We have a number of rental properties and love sharing our homes with others and know what it takes to make our guests have the best vacation ever!

Comfortable, inviting, roomy
We enjoyed staying in this comfortable home with our 7 adult children and their families for a 4 day weekend to attend the wedding of an 8th adult child. The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner was able to communicate via text messaging with most questions that we had. The home is on a resort which has a community room, pool and hot tub, however, this was not open to us without an additional per visit fee and the pool was not open due to the cooler weather. However, we enjoyed the family room and the outdoor deck with the propane fire-pit for gathering and talking and sharing stories. This home is conveniently located just a couple of miles out of town from Flagstaff.
Lovely house, rough beginning
The home is lovely. We didn't get to fully appreciate the setting and amenities as we only stayed one night and it was chilly and rainy.
We were met with the beeping of what we thought was a smoke alarm, so after communication with the owner and finding no spare batteries, we had to go purchase some. That unfortunately didn't solve the problem, so we had to go buy more batteries, and finally discovered it was the carbon monoxide sensor that had a low battery. Beeping finally ceased, but an hour and half, 2 trips to the store, and our own money, was spent on resolving it.
Before our stay we had also had several conversations about the baby equipment as we have 14 month old twins, and brought one pack n play and one high chair of our own. Unfortunately the provided pack n play was older and took the experienced daddy and grandpa a good half hour to get the sides to engage. We found the promised high chair in the garage, but it had not been cleaned and was ishy, covered in old food, so not used.
It is a lovely, clean home. Beds are comfortable. Once we got the kinks worked out, it would have been nice to stay longer and enjoy. The mints on the bed were a nice touch, but only in the master bedroom, so 6 of us had none. One for each adult would have sweetened us up! Just a suggestion!
Since we communicated several times with the owner during the stay I'm hoping the issues we found have been resolved. It is a nice property. We just had some hiccups.
Nice house, lots of rules and regulations
The house is very nice. The cleanliness and furnishings are top notch. The house is in a golf club community where the houses are pretty close together with a very strict home owners association. There are lots of rules and regulations (where to park, walk, no access to clubhouse unless you pay a fee). The town of Flagstaff is very unimpressive, average restaurants where it is hard to park unless you pay for a garage. I was crossing the street with my family and a young college student yelled the f word at us. I feel this was an isolated incident but who says that to kids ages 5-11? The house is great if you want to visit Sedona and the Grand Canyon, I wouldn’t spend too much time in Flagstaff. The owners are up front about the rules and regulations and are quick to respond to any questions.
We are glad you appreciated our beautiful and clean home and you did describe our place clearly in that we do tell our guests what to expect in our community and what regulations they need to follow. It is funny that you say the houses are on top of each other, you make it seem like we live in Brooklyn or Philadelphia and live in a row home configuration. We have always been told how much room we have around the area but we know that everyone is different in their viewpoint. We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the city of Flagstaff as you had a bad experience at the get go. This is not typical as this town is amazing and most truly enjoy the tranquility and beauty of it all. As you stated, you had a great time at our home and we were there to answer questions you may have had. Sorry that you had to give us a 3 star rating based on your bad experience in Flagstaff whereas this rating system has to do with your experience at our home, not in the town you were visiting.
Great House, Great Hosts!
What an amazing property! Everything was as described in the listing and Will could not have been more helpful. The entire stay was smooth and comfortable. Thanks!
So glad you enjoyed your time at our home and that you were able to take advantage of all we have to offer. We are always here to help as our goal is to make your vacation with us the most memorable one ever!
Beautiful, Comfortable House
This was a great property for our family of 6 adults and 3 toddlers, with plenty of room to not be on top of each other. The backyard opened onto a walking path around the golf course that was perfect for the kids to get their energy out. It's a safe gated community, and the attendants at the gate were very friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area. It was so nice to have morning coffee each day with the stocked keurig pods. Although, it wasn't as relaxing as I had hoped because of the owners constant check-ins, my family still enjoyed our trip to Flagstaff.
We check in with our guests to make sure all things are going ok but when we don't get a response we want to make sure to get in touch. We never over step those boundaries, once we know all is well and our guests don't need anything then that's the last they will hear from us until time for check out. Sorry you felt as though we were in touch too much.
We are a short drive to Snow Bow ski resort as well as Lowell Observatory, Grand Canyon and Sedona and Bearizona. So many things nearby
