"Flagstaff trip 05/27/2015"
Left on 06/08/2015 for a stay in May 2015
We rented a 2bd/2ba, but when we arrived we checked into a 2BD/2ba with a loft. The loft had 2 extra twin beds. Plus the porch had a private hot tub! At night a bunch of deer came and slept by the huge tree off our deck, and we were able to go on the deck and get pictures, without them leaving. We had an issue with the hot tub, but it was quickly taken care of by the maint dept. The kitchen was well stocked, we only cooked 1 nite, but everything we needed was there! The bedrooms were very nice as well, beds were comfortable, and the rooms were dark, in case you want to take a nap during the day. Overall it was a very pleasant stay, and all for less than hotel rooms would have cost!

Great location with mountain view, hot tub and spacious open floor plan. Condo had been updated with granite countertops, new lighting/bath fixtures and furniture. Staff very friendly and no high pressure time share pitch.

This place is great!!! The cabin is bigger than it looks in the pictures. As soon as we arrived we felt like we were home, very comfortable. There is a chain link fence around the whole property which worked otr great for letting our kids run around outside (boundaries of where they could and could not go were obvious).
We spend most of our time in Flagstaff, which was a very quick drive to and from. There is a gas station near by for quick necessities. Next time I hope we can stay longer and I can explore some of the trails that are near the cabin. This place is great for all ages, even those with mobility issues could go through the sliding glass door in front, it only has two steps.
Our only complaint, it was too clean; my wife walked straight into the sliding glass door on the back deck. Full face print, classic. (she's going to kill me when she reads this)

This was a very nice condo with a whirlpool and deck. The furnishing were very nice and it felt like home. Not plain and sterol like you get at a hotel.
The fireplace was a very nice touch.
"Nice Condo in Good Location"
Left on 06/28/2015 for a stay in June 2015
We spent a week in June in this 1 BR condo. The condo was adequately equipped and not only had a large bathroom, but also a huge jacuzzi tub. We opened all the windows rather than using the air conditioner and were comfortable most of the time. The only downside to this was all the outside noise, especially when the neighbors who shared our front porch came home. With the windows and front door closed, the noise wasn't a problem at all. The washer was small and the dryer took much longer than expected to dry the clothes, but it was nice having it in the unit. The wifi was a little slow and we had to reconnect everytime we opened our browser. We did not use any of the resort amenities, but there were plenty to choose from.

Steeped in Native American tradition and surrounded by national parks, Flagstaff is a very unique destination. For a fascinating day trip, check out the 800-year old cliff dwellings at Walnut Canyon National Monument, or visit the ruins of Native American pueblos at Wupatki National Monument. Venture a little further to visit Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Lake Powell, or plan a whitewater adventure at the famous Grand Canyon.
