TERMS

We appreciate that you are considering our house, and hope that you will be staying at our house. We have had wonderful guests, many of whom have reserved follow-up stays for the next year after completing their stay at our house. We do want to lay out the Terms of the Vacation Rental.

RATES/NUMBER OF GUESTS:

Rates will vary depending on the time of year. Rates quoted on the website are for 12 people. For each person above 12, there is a $10 per person per night fee. You will be required to complete a guest list naming all of the guests of the house. If the number of guests staying at the house exceeds the number on the guest list, that is considered a material breach of the rental agreement and will result in an immediate termination of the rental.

CANCELLATION:

I very strongly recommend travel insurance.

If you cancel and it is more than 180 days prior to your stay I will refund 50% of your deposit. If you cancel less that 180 days but more than 30 days, I will refund 25% of your deposit. Cancellations of 30 days or less will result in a forfeiture of your entire deposit.

There will be no exceptions to this policy.

INSURANCE:

We do require property insurance that costs $99 and covers and protects the renters for $2,500 in damage with no deductible. The insurance, in addition to providing protection to renters eliminates security deposits.

ADDITIONAL CLEANING FEE FOR SAME DAY TURNAROUND:

If your reservation results in a same day turnaround (that means another party is ALREADY booked for either your arrival date and/or departure date) then you will have to pay an additional $75 for cleaning. This is due to the very narrow window of time that we have to clean the entire house – 5600 sq. ft., 6 bd and 6 baths – and do all the laundry that is necessary (bedding, and towels, etc). We only have 6 hours to complete that, so my cleaning crew has to employ an extra person to complete the cleaning.

CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT TIMES:

Check in is at 5pm. We may be able to accommodate an earlier check in time, however, we will likely not know until right before your stay. In some cases we may know earlier. The reason we may not know until right before your stay is that another party may make a late reservation and want to check out the day you are checking in, and if that happens we need to have sufficient time to allow out cleaning crew to clean and do all the laundry as described in the above paragraph.

Check out is 11am. Again we may be able to accommodate a later check out, however, we will not be able to commit to that, likely, until the end of your stay. In some cases we may know earlier.

MINIMUM STAYS:

Generally we have a 4 night minimum stay. Only in the Polar Express Seasons do we have a 3 night stay. In high seasons, we have a 5 night minimum and for some holidays we have 6 night minimums. Please do not request a 2 night stay. In some cases, we will consider a shorter stay but we will have to include a charge. We will notify you of what that charge is at the time of inquiry.

About Michael

We are a family of 7. The kids range from 1 year to 18 years old. We live in Phoenix an wanted a place to get away in the Summer and enjoy the Snow in the Winter.

Michael purchased this house in 2013

Why Michael chose Grand Canyon

We are family oriented. When we get together we include the grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters and all the kids. In total we are 20+. So we wanted a property that could accommodate all of our families, and to so in a nice, comfortable and spacious house.

Up until we bought this house, we were travelers who used VRBO and Home Away to find getaway houses and cabins for our family to stay at. Some were great and other not so much. So we finally decided to get a place that was ours.

So we looked at many places north of Phoenix. After viewing several properties and then finally seeing this, we fell in love with it. It was formerly a luxury Bed and Breakfast, and had enough rooms and private baths to comfortably accommodate our entire family. The house was/is beautiful and very nicely decorated.

Roomy, Attractive and Well Equipped Home for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of ten stay at the house for nine nights and everyone was pleased. The early risers could enjoy their morning coffee without waking the others since the house is spacious and has many different areas to tuck away into for an early morning chat until the others were up for the day.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped and roomy. (BTW, pay attention to Michael's directions for finding the microwave or you'll be hunting around for awhile like I did.) It is a beautiful kitchen and is adjacent to the dining area so those preparing food or cleaning up can be a part of the dining room discussions, too.

Our central meeting place was the large dining room table. The table fit all of us at once which allowed for great conversations when we came together at night to talk about our day and plan for the next day. Very nice!

The living room was used by the TV watchers to relax together and discuss the daily news.

Because we were all out and about every day doing the many, many things there are to do around Williams, we had plenty of clothes to wash and the use of the large laundry room was a definite plus! Thank you, Michael, for making that possible!

The house is close enough for a walk down the hill into town for all it has to offer but secluded enough for privacy and quiet. And the back yard is a small haven with its patio table and chairs and the fire ring further up in the yard for relaxing in the evening.

There was plenty of parking space in the oversized driveway for our 26' trailer, truck, car and five motorcycles.

Michael responded quickly to my inquiries and provided us with all the information we needed.

The people in Williams are a helpful, friendly bunch of people and it was a great place for shopping, entertainment and dining. You'll enjoy your stay.

Great house with lots of room

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house. So much room for our large group to spread out and be comfortable. The gourmet kitchen is wonderful and we especially enjoyed down time outside by the fire. The large dining table fit our entire group so we were able to enjoy meals together.

Williams House

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Great house. Three couples with adult children (one newly married couple- no children) and Grandmother and Grandfather: 12 people in all.

We stayed 10 days i this beautifully furnished home. Main kitchen was large and accommodating, the dinning-room table was large enough that we could all eat together...plenty of dishes, cups, and glasses for water and wine. The well-equipped kitchen meant we could easily cook together. Bathrooms were spacious and hot water and water-pressure were good. Suggest grab bars be installed over the bathtubs. The pool table was a plus for our younger members. Evening fires in the backyard fire-pit made our family gathering complete. 'Honeymoon' suite' has its own kitchen. Great accommodations for the newest couple in our family. Cable offered usual selections, there is a t.v. in every bedroom and the living room. A plus: the computer in the study is linked to internet and has a great desk. There is a large library upstairs, lots of games, and a closet full of toys for toddlers. The house was clean, well furnished, cheerful and accommodating. It's close to town, just a drive down the hill. It's 30+ miles from the Grand Canyon, our destination. About the same distance to Sedona. This house worked perfectly for our family reunion and we note by the guest book that other families were equally happy with their stay. Good vibes reside in this house. I recommend it as a happy place to stay. The owner is very responsive and replied promptly to email or phone calls both before and during our stay. I highly recommend this house.

fantastic fun home to stay at

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home!!! We had a great time in this huge home with plenty of room for 8 adults, 2 kids, and one 6 month old baby. Plus, there would have been room for more people, because we didn't even use some of the beds. Great family reunion home. Nice sitting area with fire pit in the back yard for family gatherings and plenty to do inside the home as well. Overall, this is a great place to stay, we will rent it again!

Awesome family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week with 11 people including 4 kids. House is spacious and comfortable with a table large enough for all of us to eat together. There is plenty of room for everyone to have peace and quiet or togetherness. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and using the fireplace in the living room while we sat around and discussed the day's activities. Nicely positioned for access to Grand Canyon, Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff and the beautiful drive to Sedona. Four of us also made the drive to Monument Valley, which is doable, but makes for a long day of driving! We loved our stay and would highly recommend the place. Owner is also very easy to deal with.
