House was very nice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house a lot. After hiking 50 miles in the Grand Canyon, the hot tub felt awesome. The housing area around the house did not match to how nice the house was. We would stay here again

Clean, cabin decor, lots of space, cute loft

  • 5 of 5

We stayed, 13 of us, comfortably in this cute little home. Caitlyn answered all of our E-mail questions quickly. She also allowed us to stay just one night! Great experience overall.

Not exactly what is advertised.

  • 3 of 5

First of all, the property manager was very nice and accommodating when I was having problems with paying through Homeaway. (Issues with Homeaway are an entirely separate bad review and had nothing to do with my opinion of our stay.) Let me also preface with my husband accidentally booking our trip to start and end a day later, so our early arrival was a surprise to the property manager. She was very nice about this and allowed us to stay before the house was fully ready. Linens were clean, but bed wasn't made and house wasn't set, but this was our fault.

The biggest problem was the advertisement of how many people could sleep in the home. The website said up to 18 but we couldn't figure out how more than 14 people could sleep and this was including the BROKEN pull out couch and BROKEN couch for 3 of those people. The sleeping arrangements totalled as follows: 2 king beds, 2 full beds, 3 twin beds and a pull out bed on sectional couch. My almost 70 year old mother chose to sleep on the couch because she is up a lot at night and didn't want to disturb anyone. She woke in the middle of the night stuck in the collapsed pull out bed, yelling for help. No wonder there was a piece of plywood under the cushions, the frame was bent and couldn't support a 130 pound person without it. The queen size bedroom advertised was actually a full. We spent all weekend juggling people from room to room, trying to make everyone comfortable for at least one night.

Aside from the sleeping fiasco, there were only a few other issues. Oven/burners were terrible, taking a long time to cook food and also cooked it unevenly. Not too big of a deal, but games were missing too many pieces to play. 5 minute walk to town was really a 10 minute drive. One side of the house had a decent view into a field with the train on the other side, but the other 3 sides neighbored broken down homes with hoarder-style yards. After the issues with Homeaway payment, we couldn't tell if we had paid for the add-on of the jacuzzi, but my husband couldn't get it to work.

The house had many nice attributes, including a pretty fireplace, western-themed decor and a great backyard for kids. Bathrooms were great, upgraded showers were very nice. We did have a nice time during the day, it was just the night that was difficult. I would stay here again, but with no more than 2 couples who had lots of kids.

Owner's Response: Hello Kelly! I am terribly sorry about the couch, it is in need of repair and the owner has decided we will buy a new couch, I wish I would have known you were having such a hard time sleeping I would have been happy to bring you an air mattress. The listing says we can sleep 18 in the house but 11-12 comfortably in beds, I'm so sorry if it was misleading, I will go back and make sure the listing does not mislead others in the future. Downtown Williams is 1/2 mile from the property, can easily be walked to in a very short amount of time, im unsure of how it took 10 minutes to drive, the whole downtown of Williams is only 1- 1 1/2miles long. I will mention the stove to the owner so he can take a look at it and unfortunately you didn't pay the extra spa fee so it was not available to you, probably why is wasn't working. Again I apologize if we mislead you in anyway and will look into everything you mentioned. I hope you come see us again! Blessings, Williams Railway Retreat

Great location, Excellent House!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house! The house has been recently renovated and has all the necessary amenities. More importantly it is clean and well-maintained. Our party had 10 people (4 kids) and we were very comfortable with enough comfortable beds for everyone. The kids loved the trampoline and the jacuzzi.

The town of Williams was a unique treat for my family visiting from abroad and the drive to the Grand Canyon was very convenient. It took us about an hour each way, so we went on multiple days.

The owner (Caitlin) is very prompt in responding to phone calls and emails. She was also very helpful and patiently answered all of my questions before the trip. We had a wonderful experience!

Some Suggestions:

It would be a good idea to include directions on how to use the controls on the jacuzzi to set the water temperature as the labels on the unit are worn off.

The throw pillows on the couch in the living area either need a wash.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. The house is surprisingly roomy inside and our party of eight was quite comfortable. We liked many features of this property, especially the southwestern flair of decoration.The only issue was the number of available chairs at the dining table, we had to improvise in order to have meals together. Overall though, it is a great rental property.
