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.

This was a wonderful get away for my family.

  • 5 of 5

This property is even better then the pictures and description. This home is very comfy, spacious and a joy to stay at. Lynn provides so many supplies, everything is labeled in the cabinets, extra sheets, blankets and many, many amenities. Lynn is quick to respond if you encounter a problem. (Our only problem was an empty propane tank. She has an extra one available. We only needed to contact her to as to how to access it.) The wrap around porch provided my granddaughter a way to run off energy while we relaxed and sipped coffee or wine. WE truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying here again. Thanks Lynn!!

Thank you, Lynn! We will be returning to Casa Bonita soon!

We loved Casita Bonita

  • 5 of 5

We came up to the Flagstaff area for my wife's graduation from NAU and we had an amazing stay at Casita Bonita. Everything was as advertised. We were close enough to Flagstaff for all the events of the weekend but far enough away to feel like we were away from all the hustle and bustle of the everyday activities. One day we walked a short way to some peaceful trails and another we sat on the spacious balcony while others played horseshoes. All the amenities are there to keep everyone entertained from ages 5 to 65. We had a blast and we will definitely be back, Thank you, Lynn for making our short trip North a memorable one that we won't soon forget.
