About Mark and Lisa Engelman

We reside in Phoenix and have enjoyed many weekend trips to Flagstaff over the years. We bought this home and furnished it specifically to share with you! We have had wonderful experiences ourselves with vacation home rentals so it was a logical and exciting next step to get our own home listed as well!

Mark and Lisa Engelman purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark and Lisa Engelman chose Flagstaff

We chose Flagstaff because it is an awesome town on its own with a unique history, great restaurants and shopping, but also because its centrally located to other major attractions such as the Grand Canyon and Sedona. With such a short drive to get there from Phoenix (under 2 hours), Flagstaff offers a welcome escape from the summer heat for 'Valley' residents like us. Flagstaff has many cultural, recreational, and sight-seeing attractions of its own as well, and with 4 distinct seasons it is a desirable destination any time of year. In winter, the snow and surrounding mountains provide many opportunities for fun including downhill and cross country skiing, sledding, tubing, etc. In autumn, temperatures cool and the foliage in the surrounding forests turns colorful for unforgettable hiking and scenic touring. Spring and summer temperatures make ideal conditions for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and sightseeing. Not to mention strolling the delightful downtown area or sitting at a sidewalk cafe and people-watching.

What makes this house unique

Our home in Flagstaff has several unique benefits over other vacation rentals. Its size, number of bathrooms, and number of private sleeping quarters makes it ideal for larger groups. In addition, the layout of the home over three stories with two separate decks in the back, a huge rec room in the basement and living room/dining room on the main floor, makes it easy for people to either gather together, or spread out into their own separate space if desired. The rec room with its 70 inch TV, surround sound system, billiard table, and convenient bathroom is a great area for socializing or relaxation. We love to cook and entertain so naturally the kitchen and wet bar are fully stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, and quality cookware for large groups. Furnishings and décor are all brand new throughout, with a fun mix of city and country styles. The back gate allows easy access to the large green space behind the house which provides a fun area for the kids to play (while you watch them from the deck), or for you to take a stroll with your dog. The trail running through this area leads directly to the Mt. Elden trail system, providing a great opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy some hiking or mountain biking. Treks to downtown are also easy and quick by car (just 6 minutes!) or safely by bike via the Flagstaff Urban Trail System bike paths.

The perfect place for a big family get together that feels remote while close to the city!

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 3 kids comfortably in this beautiful house. The many options for beds and bedrooms with multiple dens and living rooms made it extremely relaxing. Everyone had their own space. From the large deck, to the den with big screen and pool table, everyone had a place to hang out. The kitchen and all bedrooms had everything you need for an amazing stay. We will definitely rent this place again!

Absolutely perfect. Very clean comfortable and well stocked with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental is so well done. Great attention to every detail, super clean with the most comfortable beds and linens. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. It's a great location just minutes to downtown. The downstairs entertainment area with a pool table and giant flatscreen TV was perfect for us as well as our college-age kids. Backed up to the woods with access to trails. Can't wait to return.

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people in this beautiful house and had a great time and lots of pictures and wonderful memories for sure. The guys did all the cooking and the girls did the dishes. With the large kitchen and out door grill our minds were our only limitations. The location was perfect for all the sites we wanted to see. The man cave is just that every man's wants and needs but also lady friendly with the outdoor fire pit just out the door. Greatest time for sure had by all of us. Thank you for sharing your home with us. When we head that direction again we will definitely see about staying again. P.s. you won't be disappointed to stay at this home.

Perfect for 3 generation family time

  • 4 of 5

This was a great fit for our family (6 adults, 4 kids from 2 families). The location was very convenient drive to Flagstaff, though we especially enjoyed neighborhood access to the incredible hiking trail system. We had plenty of space for sleeping, sharing the kitchen, dining (we added a card table for the 4 kids to eat at within dining area, 6 adults at dining table) and just hanging out.

I would suggest to add more towel racks or hooks for this number sleep capacity - this is minor but was still notable for the 2 adults staying in the main floor bedroom/office. The kitchen was well appointed, with good quality cookware and assortment of utensils - you don't always find that in a rental.

Communication with the owners was always very prompt and detailed.

We would definitely recommend to a group of up to 10, for those who want to enjoy both downtown Flagstaff but also the greater region. thank you.

This home is located on a friendly cul-de-sac street in the desirable Swiss Manor neighborhood of Flagstaff with close proximity to Historic Route 66, providing for short commutes via car to historic downtown (6-7 min), the Flagstaff Mall or a grocery store (2-3 min), many nearby restaurants, and attractions such as Walnut Canyon, Lowell Observatory, and Arizona Snowbowl. The Grand Canyon is only a 1.5 hour drive! The spectacular red rocks of Sedona are about 40 minutes! Northern Arizona University (NAU) is just 10 minutes away. And it is a 15 minute drive to the road that leads up Mt. Humphries to the Snowbowl ski area.

Close proximity to I-40 also means you can get in and out of town fast, without driving through downtown if desired.

Do you like to hike or mountain bike? The Mt Elden trail system begins just through this home's back gate for miles of beautiful Ponderosa pine lined trails and fresh mountain air! Nearby (~1 mi via hiking) is Flagstaff's most popular loop trail 'Fat Man's', with great views of East Flagstaff and the surrounding area. And if you're feeling up for it, take the 'Lookout Trail' connection off 'Fat Man's' and hike all the way to Mt Elden's summit! There are also many biking opportunities nearby provided by the Flagstaff Urban Trails System (FUTS) bike paths, which can safely take you around town or downtown in just a few minutes.

Need to grab a quick bite or a gallon of milk? There are several local and fast food restaurants within a 10 minute walk from this home. There is also a convenience store within walking distance.
