Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms + Loft - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 14)

Set in 5 acres of tall timber, this Park's home offers rustic elegance, comfort and absolute tranquility. A visitor would never know they were only minutes away from Flagstaff, restaurants and city activities. Choose from the night-life of Flagstaff or the adventures of the Grand Canyon (that is only a 55 minute drive!) , mountain biking, skiing or any number of outdoor activities within minutes of this beautiful retreat.This 2500 square foot home features a master suite, 4 bedrooms, a loft and 2 bathrooms. A supplemental wood burning stove adds that cozy touch while a family, or group of friends are nestled in for a late night home movie in this beautifully appointed Casa. The loft is great for kids and the covered porch, just off the living room, is great for BBQ's, boisterous conversations, relaxing evenings....Or just watching the wildlife. You are in the woods! The property backs up against 500 acres of Coconino National forest, so the only unexpected guests will be the deer,elk and eagle.

Snow play park off of Route 66 : 5 minutes away is a state park for kids to play in the snow, they have small runs for sledding and sliding etc. Anything you can think of to do in the snow. Great time for the family. Tubing year round at Elk Ridge Ski area.

Tubing in Williams, AZ : 12 minutes away is Williams, AZ 'Gateway to the Grand Canyon' and it has a small ski slope but half of the ski slope is used for tubing (year round) and it is a blast.

About Malcolm Giles

If you are a kind person I will give your family a discount. I take my job very serious and I want our guest to feel very comfortable. I will go out of my way to help them have an enjoyable visit. I love sharing my special place/home with guest. 99.9% love the experience.

Malcolm Giles purchased this house in 1999

Why Malcolm Giles chose Arizona

Wanted time away from the busy 'Valley of the Sun' time to relax and rejuvenate one soul and time to enjoy nature. Time to live in the now and be present to myself. The fun part now is I can share these moments with our wonderful guest.

What makes this house unique

No one is around, you are alone in the woods and you will not see anyone else while you are there. Why not get away from the crowds. I promise you will not want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came to vacation and get out of the valley. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We enjoyed rain storms, fresh air and relaxed. We didn't see any animals but it was nice stop between the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff and Williams. Which we were able to visit all due to the wonderful location of the cabin. Very peaceful, love the location, cabin had everything you could need. Plenty of water, lines, dishes and utensils, etc. Thank you for letting us use the garage to put ours in to keep animals away. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay.

Ideal!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic stay! We came as a company of actors who needed a home for a weekend while doing a show in Flagstaff, and the cabin environment was so relaxing and invigorating. The property was beautiful and welcoming--highly recommended!

Comfortable accommodations and secluded feel

  • 5 of 5

Rustic all-wood cabin just off Route 66 in wooded area. Close to plenty of attractions including the Grand Canyon and the Lava River Caves. There's plenty of space and is very comfortable. The kids loved it! The property manager was very honest and went out of her way to look for an electronic device that one of our kids accidentally left and mailed it back to us!

Great location and close to Williams railroad.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was nice but looked a little different in the pictures. Compared to other VRBO cabins we have stayed in, this was a little outdated. The extra room next to the house did not have a bathroom and the pull out bed in the loft did not have a mattress. The cable TV did not work as well. It was cozy though and was ok for 11 of us.

Owner's Response: After 10 years you think you have solve all the problems or try to satisfy your guess in many many special things we do to make our guess happy, but the guest keep making up new ways to complain, I just paid a professional photographer to up date our pictures. "The pictures did not look like the house." Wow that is all I can say. Also there was a king size bed up there and the extra bed was a futon, that is why it didn't have a mattress. The futon is the mattress. Directv just came to fix the cable for us. There are better ways to let your host know something needs attending vs writing so so reviews. I am glad you were able to enjoy your stay just enough to honor us with a mid range score of a grand total of a 3.

Perfect get away for our British inlaws to visit (thanks for the tea)

  • 4 of 5

We live in Phoenix but our British in-laws wanted to visit, and see the Grand Canyon. I booked this cabin so we could all be together a couple of nights. It was VERY nice. Plenty of beds and rooms to accommodate everyone. Will recommend to friends. only thought is that I really felt all bedding should be stripped and cleaned after each guest stays. We were instructed just to remove sheets. But we had great fun here and were so happy to see a kettle and English Breakfast tea for my British inlaws! Nice touch.

This Rental Stinks

  • 2 of 5

Let me start by saying that over the past 20 years we have rented on average 2 vacation rentals per year. In 2016 we rented in Flagstaff for Easter, Southhampton over the summer and this rental for Thanksgiving. We have spent between $200 and $1000 a night for the various properties. We are not newbies at this vacation rental thing and I have never been dissatisfied with a rental.

We rented this property at a premium for the Thanksgiving holiday. We arrived Wednesday night and were met with an awful sewer smell upon entering. We called the contact # on the fridge and left a message asking if there was something we could do for the smell. We did not receive a call back and ended up having to deal with this smell while cooking, eating and celebrating our Thanksgiving. It was so bad and honestly if we had not had hundreds of dollars worth of groceries in tow we would have cut our losses and gone to a hotel. On top of this there was absolutely no outdoor furniture to sit on outside and my husband had to make the trek to the store on Thanksgiving to purchase things like paper towels, dish soap, etc (all things we have never had to supply for ourselves in a VR) and the 2nd bathroom was filthy.

The owner did finally contact me on Friday after I emailed him Thursday. I sat on the ground outside the cabin on a towel as we spoke. He was extremely condescending and acted like this was a normal thing to have happen with septic systems and that the smell is to be expected. In all the cabins I have rented (all on septic) never have I dealt with sleeping in a bedroom that smelled like an outhouse. He did not apologize once. When I let him know that the second bathroom was so dirty my kids couldn't use it he said condescendingly, "I'm in Scottsdale would you like me to come clean it?" When I asked him if I was maybe overlooking outdoor furniture he told me, "someone stole it so now we have to buy new". I have never rented a property that had no outdoor furniture and when you are renting for a premium you would think they would make an effort to supply this... or at least let us know and we would have happily brought our camping chairs to sit on.

Since I'm running out of characters I will end by saying I was promised over and over that they were sending someone out to clean the system. They did finally show up, on Sunday as we packed up our car to leave. We paid a premium price for this and owner took 2 months to refund deposit. This was the worst rental ever.

Owner's Response: Anyone viewing my property ratings will see this is an exception to the rule: It is professionally managed, cleaned, and stocked with everything imaginable to make our guests experience a memorable one. Having been inspected and cleaned less than a week before, and viewed by the property Manager the day before, up to that point the premises and septic were clean, and functional! All items inventoried and accounted for. Within 24 hours the septic backs up, the house dirties itself, and the supply closet is not opened to view soaps, towels, paper towels, and all needed cleaning supply's? The client sent an email to me on Thanksgiving Day, the night after their arrival. I don’t know if you ever tried to get any service on Thanksgiving, but none of the service companies returned any of my calls, or my assistants until (the next day), Friday. Given a priority, they arrived Saturday and remedied the situation as quickly as anyone could have done. Some outdoor furniture had been stolen, but given that is was 20 degrees, with an elevation of 7800 feet above sea level; I opted to buy new furniture in the Spring. There still is an expensive carved swing that seats 3 to 4 people and several tree stumps finish as seats after the trees nearest the home were cut and used for firewood; and to prevent the heavy snow and ice from causing damage to the property. Upon follow-up after speaking with the cleaning service and property manager, the client said she found dust on the 2nd bathroom windowsill, which rendered it unusable for her 2 kids. No property owner likes receiving negative ratings, but I did everything humanly possible to correct everything as quickly as possible, and as the client said herself, I even offered to drop my Family Thanksgiving and drive there from Scottsdale, to clean it myself! What more could I have done?
