This cabin will exceed your expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 night stay at this cabin and we had an amazing time. What a surprise we all had when we arrived at Casita Bonita. The house is warm, quaint and charming and it has absolutely everything one could ever wish for. The owner is very thoughtful as she leaves all the essentials and niceties there for the guests. The house is very clean and the bedrooms/bathrooms are very spacious. The living area is fantastic with a variety of games, movies and other enterteinment options. The kitchen is very well equipped with high quality dishes and utensils and the cabin is very well decorated. We brought wonderful memories back and will certainly rent this cabin again soon!

Owner's Response: Casita Bonita is truly well equipped. We know our renters will appreciate numerous extras so we have supplied the cabin with high quality furnishings and an exceedingly complete kitchen. The cabin is the owner's own home-away-from-home so this allows renters to have a very special vacation experience in a fully furnished upscale home. Since January of 2008 Casita Bonita has been rented an average of 140 nights per year. We have been very fortunate because our renters have enjoyed and helped us to maintain this high quality rental property. We just recently began directing renters to the online review area to post feedback, so there are only a handful of reviews at this point. We encourage prospective guests to make a reservation today to experience this lovely vacation property for yourselves and to submit a review online.

Work and play

  • 5 of 5

I find myself needing to be in Flagtaff for work now mad then. When I do, we always stay at Casa Bomita and make a family vacation out of the trip. Lynn's cabin is cozy for the family a close to everything. It's always clean, well kept, and inviting. The icing on the cake is that Lynn is a genuinely nice person!

Casa Bonita is our home away from home!

Exactly as advertised. Clean and stocked

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was as advertised. Clean and stocked very well. There are about 15 steps up to get to the wrap around deck. We used the fireplace inside and the fire pit outside. Very nice family experience with my two adult children. The only recommendation I would have is to bring an ax or ask for some split firewood. There is a lot of firewood but they are pretty big pieces and not conducive to starting a fire. I went to the store down the hill and bought a bundle to use to start the fire. Overall - we loved it and would stay there again.

Lovely cabin for a comfortable vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bonita has been carefully prepared to have most anything you could need or want during your stay. Everything works. The master bed is excellent. Comfortable living room to lounge indoors and read or enjoy the many entertainment outlets. But hope you're here for the outdoors; a wrap around balcony puts you there. The landscaping is well done. If your too lazy to take advantage of the trail system around Munds Park, the vacant lot next door offers many of the same wildflowers. Flagstaff has lots of interesting restaurants, the youthful zest of a college town, and many recreational opportunities. Enjoy; just don't be booking it for the next time we want to return.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed and tsstefully decorated home with great outdoor patios to relax in the cool mountain air. We took our ATV and caught a trail right near the house. There are many in the area, plus great hiking and golfing. It is far from town but two restaurants are nearby. Plus, the home is so well equipped, you would never want to leave if you are prepared to cook. And the owner is very easy to work with. Perfect getaway!
