Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Williams - Grand Canyon, Polar Express!

Historic 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Home With Open Living Space And Quiet Bedrooms

Location, Location, Location!

Park your car and relax in this spacious, clean and comfortable three-bedroom, two-bathroom home just steps from the famous Grand Canyon Railway station, where trains depart for Grand Canyon National Park and, during the winter holiday season, the North Pole via Polar Express!

Historic downtown Williams, quaint shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment are a quick 10-minute stroll from the front door.

My home is designed for both family and adult getaways. It sleeps a maximum of eight, if you put two people on the comfy sofas.

Full kitchen, cozy gas fireplace, separate TV room, distinct sleeping and living areas, backyard patio with a picnic table and new gas grill for al fresco dining.

Williams is a perfect small-town getaway. Groceries, coffee shops, restaurants and entertainment are all just a short walk away. Summer temperatures are mild, winter days often have both snow and sunshine. Williams is a 'dark sky' town, so the bright stars and galaxies seem close enough to touch!

Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

The house was very clean and the beds very comfortable. There were very few comfortable places to sit with good lighting.

There was a plumbing problem the last day we were there which as far as we could tell was an unfortunate and very inconvenient situation that can happen in any house at any time. We reported the problem by leaving a note before we left. The property manager determined that the problem was due to intentional damage by our use of the facility and deducted $50 from our deposit. We strongly disagreed with her assessment of the problem to no avail. I have always been a very satisfied Homeaway customer and have been a responsible temporary resident so this poor customer service is a great disappointment to me and has tarnished the reputation of The Homeaway/VRBO group in my eyes.

Owner's Response: As has been reflected in all of our other reviews, we do our absolute best to make sure that all of our guests have the best stay possible during what often is a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Grand Canyon. In this case, we were not alerted that a problem had occurred until after the guests' stay had ended. We make ourselves available to our guests at all hours (we provide our personal cell numbers to help address any urgent issues) and if we had known there was a problem during the stay we would have immediately addressed it. We know that things happen, we understand. In this case, we made ourselves available to work out an amiable solution and that, unfortunately, failed.

Clean, cozy and close

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the perfect location for the Grand Canyon Railroad. The house itself was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. The bedrooms are off the main living area so it was quiet for those sleeping in. Lisa was very prompt at returning all inquiries I had. Highly recommend this house.

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

Very cute house located right by downtown Williams. Great location - close to the Grand Canyon. Just right for our family of six. We loved sitting by the fireplace in the evening. Everything was very neat and clean. Thank you!!

Cozy bungalo!

We found the place to be just as described. Very cozy home with fresh new decor. Perfect for our family of 4. Owner was super accommodating and the place was stocked with everything necessary to make our stay comfortable.

Great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

Great place if you want to keep your group together, as opposed to a hotel. Well maintained. Very clean. 2 1/2 hr drive from PHX airport and 1 1/2 to the Grand Canyon. Nice little town with a handful of bars and restaurants. Grocery store w/liquor store inside. Train to grand canyon is across the street. Everything in town is no further than 1 mile away in every direction.

Wonderful place - it even has its own wigwam!

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights here in December 2014 on a road trip through Arizona, following a recommendation from a friend in London. This was in fact my first attempt at HomeAway or anything similar. What a way to start! This is a charming house, which has everything you need for a really comfortable stay. And, yes, there is really a (small) wigwam in the lounge! Lisa was super-responsive to my enquiries before I arrived and really helpful while I was there - with great tips on what to do in Williams and how to explore the Canyon. Williams is the perfect base for day trips to the Canyon - about an hour's drive away. In Williams itself, I can wholeheartedly recommend a visit to the Sultana Bar, where I spent a fun evening playing pool and drinking great Pale Ale. (If you are also planning to do this, I do recommend eating dinner first.)
