Why April chose Grand Canyon

We were looking for a place to escape the heat in Phoenix. After searching several locations throughout northern Arizona, we selected Williams for it's charm and beauty. Plus, we loved the lush greenery of the golf course area and the nearby lakes and hiking trails. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You will be welcomed by the locals and greeted in a warm fashion. The town is very safe. Ponderosa Playce is a member of the Williams Chamber of Commerce.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your kind note and prompt return of our deposit. We really enjoyed your home and neighborhood. We hope to return and stay again! It is great that you maintain such a lovely home and offer it to visitors to beautiful Williams AZ! The kitchen amenities and "staples" (salt, pepper, oil and the like) made our stay even more homey.

The best house ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property and house are a perfect place to stay while visiting the area. The house is more than clean: it's modern, clean above most standards, , organized and comfortable. April checked in via email and Jim the property manager came by as well. WE loved this house and enjoyed having family meals after days at the canyon. Thank you April for having such a retreat.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful experience staying at April's place! Plenty of space for my family of 5, TV in every room, large living room, games and puzzles, etc... We stayed there while visiting the Grand Canyon and the train ride from Williams to the South Rim was perfect. Highly recommend it. Also, we visited the Bearizona wild animal park which was a huge hit with the kids. We would definitely love to stay here if we were to come to Williams again!

Perfect Playce

  • 5 of 5

Ponderosa Playce proved to be perfect for our visit to the Grand Canyon. We were three adult couples, and a three year old. The accommodations were warm, homey, and comfortable. The house is really beautiful, and includes everything you could possibly need. The drive from Williams to the Grand Canyon is easy, about an hour. The the town of Williams, less than ten minutes from the house, is interesting, with lots of choices for dining and a couple of breweries. I would definitely consider a return the next time we are in the area!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

April,

Thank you very much for allowing us the use of renting your beautiful home. The home was very well kept and one of the cleanest we've ever rented and had most amenities of home. It was perfect for all of our needs! The location was perfect for our Grand Canyon trip, the local Williams area, and our day trips to Flagstaff and Sedona. We wouldn't hesitate to rent from you again when returning to the area! Again, many thanks!

Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a safe, clean, comfortable home-base while you visit key sites in the area, this is the perfect choice. We ate in more than out during our stay and the kitchen was great. We were able to visit the Grand Canyon one direction and Sedona another, both about an hour away. We also enjoyed sites around Williams (like Bearizona). In between adventures, we relaxed at the house and felt right at home. The laundry facilities were a big plus - especially after our ATV afternoon! You can't go wrong with this choice. Many thanks, April!

Area attractions include the Grand Canyon (approximately 40 minutes away by car), or enjoy the historic Grand Canyon Railroad from downtown Williams (2 miles away). For a more secluded yet fantastic canyon viewing and hiking experience, visit Sycamore Canyon, the second largest canyon in Arizona. Sycamore Canyon is approximately 15 miles south south of Williams.

Nearby attractions Flagstaff (30 minute drive), Bearizona! (5 minute drive), Deer Farm and Petting Zoo (20 minute drive) and the beautiful red rocks of Sedona are within a one hour and a half drive.

Historic downtown Williams and Route 66 is located 2 miles from the house with a full service Safeway grocery store. In Williams, enjoy a carriage ride, rent an ATV for the day or watch one of the daily “cowboy shoot outs” on the street. The Rodeo may be in town while you’re visiting, and nearby trail rides are available.

In Flagstaff, experience Lowell Observatory, Riordan Mansion, the Arboretum, Sunset Crater and Heritage Square.

Ski at Elk Ridge (15 minute drive), or try the bigger Snow Bowl ski experience located in Flagstaff.

Enjoy golf for a reasonable fee at Elephant Rocks Golf Course, an 18-hole course with many memorable holes and spectacular views. The original 9-holes were built in the 1930's.

Spend some time fishing at Cataract Lake, Dog Town Lake or Whitehorse Lake, all within a short drive from this home.

Located in the middle of Kaibab National Forest with many hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.
