Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 bathroom close to Downtown Square

The Terrace is located in the historic residential area just 2 and a half short blocks from The Historic Downtown Courthouse Square & Whiskey Row. There is a tremendous array of activities at The Square and you are literally only a short 3 to 5 minute walk from The Square and the famous Whiskey Row. Also review The Townhouse, VRBO # 1012557, which is 2 bedrooms and one and a half baths.

The Terrace was professionally decorated with a romantic French theme in mind. When you arrive and walk-out onto The Terrace deck and view Thumb Butte Mountain, immediately all of your stress vanishes!

The outside Terrace Deck is quaint and a fabulous place to relax, barbecue or sit and have a quiet cup of coffee or espresso! Just sit and watch your neighbors stroll the sidewalks of the historic residential area which The Terrace is nestled amongst.

The Terrace is approximately 1,100 square feet with two bedrooms (king size bed in the master bedroom and double bed in the second bedroom), one full bath/shower, large completely stocked kitchen (cook your Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner), nook eating area and living room with new 40' flat screen HDTV, HD cable, and Blu-Ray DVD which enables you to downstream Netflix, since we have high speed WIFI access. The Terrace can easily accommodate two couples or a family of five. Also remember we are pet friendly, so bring the pooch!

Check out our other exceptional properties all within walking distance of downtown! The Townhouse is a sister property, view VRBO # 1012557 for details, and The Cottage, view VRBO # 442389, is a larger rental with approximately 1,550 square feet.

About Larry Schmidt

I moved to the Prescott area in 2007, and after 11 years, I consider myself a true Prescottonian and ambassador of Prescott. Although I am getting closer to retirement age, I still am employed in sales management, with a fantastic company in Minneapolis, which enables me to work out of the house.

I got into the renting of VRBO properties in 2011, when my first property was only the 50th listing in Prescott, where in today's world there is over 200 listings. Since I travel a lot myself due to my job, I have used VRBO extensively. I look for clean, well managed properties that are close to local activities with a homey feel, as opposed to the clinical feel of a hotel chain. I strive to run and present a VRBO experience that is consistent with what I would be looking for.

Larry Schmidt purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Larry Schmidt chose Prescott

I purchased this property due to its fantastic location to the downtown historic courthouse square. The property has dedicated concrete paved parking perpendicular to the street, in the front, which is very unique for downtown, and the street appeal is outstanding.

The property sits in the historic residential neighborhood, so although it is close to downtown it is quiet.

Also as a personal investment, with the Great Recession, I like many others was disturbed by my lack of ability to avoid the huge crash in my 401K investments. With this property and marketing under VRBO/HomeAway, I can control my own investment, and I enjoy the interaction with my guests. I measure my success by the significant number of repeat customers my properties have generated, and the friendships that I have made along the way.

What makes this bungalow unique

The uniqueness of this property is the fact that it is like a private home which is so close to all of the activites of the Historic downtown square yet nestled in a quiet well kept neighborhood.

Cheerful, lovingly decorated, and conveniently located to historic downtown district.

  • 5 of 5

My desire was to be within walking distance of the historic courthouse and this apartment's location did not disappoint. Enjoyed walking my dog several times a day in the residential district and was three short blocks to the square and its shops. The "Terrace" is nicely furnished, tastefully decorated and had all the extras needed in a turnkey setting. The Elks Theater is about 2 blocks away, so be sure to take in any entertainment there. The shows we saw were superb. The beds were comfortable and the apartment spotless. Sadly the month of July flew by too quickly and I returned to the sweltering remaining monsoon in what appeared the be no time at all.

Having been to Prescott many times over the last 35 years. I thought I had the best place to stay all figured out. Well, now I can truly say that.

This property is outstanding. Comfortable, quiet, and So close to historic downtown that our car hasn’t been started since we got here.

We truly enjoyed the cool summer evenings on the deck and the sunny days roaming my favorite town in Arizona. If I could leave 10 stars I would.

Best customer service ever! Super location!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is cute, clean, well equipped and very well located. Larry set a new threshold for customer service: called us before the rental date, then on the rental date to invite us to check in early; and then on Sunday nite responded to my plea after I locked my self out. Always gracious!

I suggest the website be corrected to list one bath (not the 1 1/2 bath listed.)

A terrific experience. Thanx Larry!

Great location, we were able to walk with our dog a lot which was important- couldn't find a dog sitter so we had to take him. Very cute and clean apartment.

We loved the Terrace! It was clean, spacious, affordable, quiet, close to town for walking. I would stay here again or at one of the other places on this property. We will be back again next spring!

The star attraction of Prescott is the Historic Downtown Courthouse Square and the famous Whiskey Row. The Courthouse was the original Territorial Capital for Arizona beginning in the 1860s, and Whiskey Row is the site of western saloons and brothels of years past! The Square is the heartbeat of Prescott, where you find a vast variety of boutique and specialty shops, original saloons, locally owned restaurants (including organic only restaurants), local art galleries, museums bars with live music.

In fact virtually every night of the week, you will find at least one bar with live music. On the weekends, you will have a choice of country, classic rock, hard rock, contemporary and jazz music. Starting in the spring going through the early fall, there is musicians during the week at The Square sponsored by the City of Prescott.

Prescott has often been voted one of the top five cities to retire in, but there is a vast array of activities for all ages. Our location easily facilitates day trips to the Grand Canyon of Sedona with its awesome Red Rock vistas. When most people think of Arizona, they think of the hot desert (remember it is dry heat, but over 100 degrees is too hot regardless) and Phoenix or Tucson. But not Prescott, since it is at 5,300 elevation within the Prescott National Forest. Feel the cool summer nights and escape the heat of the desert!!!

Don't forget to come during the fall and winter, since Prescott is a year round destination with four distinct seasons, but with temperate temperatures in both the winter and summer. Some annual seasonal events to remember are as follows:

In April the annual world famous amateur and pro Whiskey Row Off Road Mountain Bike Race

During the first week of July the Oldest Rodeo in North America and Fourth of July Parade around Downtown

For the month of October, Mount Vernon Street (one street east of the property) with its Victorian Homes are totally decked out for Halloween, and our Halloween Eve the street is shut down for the kids and Trick or Treating

Prescott is renowned as the Christmas City of Arizona. The Historic Square is totally decked out with lights and decorations. The first Friday in December is Acker Night, where the Square is closed to traffic, and all of the shops and restaurants/bars have musicians playing. Also there are two separate Christmas parades.

So what are you waiting for, come visit and explore all that Prescott and The Historic Downtown Courthouse Square has to offer.
