Why Kate Harris chose Arizona

After visiting Flagstaff, we knew it was where we wanted to call home. Kids keep us close to town now, so we decided to share our special place in the woods!

What makes this chalet unique

Whether cooling off from the summer heat in our mountain oasis, or enjoying our winter wonderland sitting by the cozy wood burning stove & watching the snow fall, you hear nothing but the wind in the pines while you enjoy fantastic views- what more could you ask for? A fabulous, gourmet meal? Just minutes away in quaint downtown Flagstaff. Once you visit, you'll be counting the days until you can come back!

Great stay in a beautiful area!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Katie's place. We had a large group and had plenty of room to spread out while enjoying our time together. Katie was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We had a back yard full of snow and the kids loved the tree house and big Snow hill just a few minutes away for sledding. Great time!!

Cozy & Comfi felt like home away from

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely perfect!! if your looking for a comfy , cozy stay this is definitely the place. The house came fully equipped with Pots, dishes , coffee pot, cooking utensils, towels, tissue absolutely everything. My grandkids enjoyed the Treehouse even in the snow. There was a beautiful view from the kitchen double glass doors looking out watching the snow come down. If you are a down to earth family looking for a cozy comfortable place to vacation this is the spot!!!

I only have one suggestion that would be to maybe upgrade the TV in the lower level for kids to be able to hook up game consoles but besides that everything was perfect. definitely 5 stars

Good and bad experience

  • 2 of 5

We brought our 3 children for a quick getaway during fall break. We enjoyed the stay in the area although we should have google earthed the location of the property as the house is very close to neighbors on either side and we prefer a little more privacy. Our children loved the tree house and making s'mores around the fire pit at night. We also loved having access to the forest right behind he house to explore and take our dogs for walks.

Our biggest upset was finding the house was basically infested with spiders. We counted 22 that we killed in the first two days and I can't imagine how many we didn't see. They were not small spiders either and even had to move our two boys from the basement bunk beds to upstairs as we found spiders on the wall right beside their heads where they were sleeping !

The house was clean but the spider situation needs to be addressed and the basement is in need of new carpet.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear the family enjoyed the house! In the forest, there are spiders.. But 22? I find that extremely difficult to believe, especially since I was in the house just prior to arrival & had no complaints from the guests staying just before..

Interesting location, good house, smaller than advertised

  • 4 of 5

Overall positive experience. The location is very pretty and the house itself is pleasant even if a bit messy. Made use of the kitchen, bathrooms, porch, TV/Netflix, lights, etc, and everything is in good working order as far as we could tell.

Owner/manager was responsive and helpful.

Only warning is that it doesn't seem to sleep 15 people unless you bring plenty of air matresses or are willing to sleep on couches and carpet. There is enough floor space but larger groups should be prepared to not have a bed for everyone. You can do beds for 8-10 if you put 2 to a bed.

Owner's Response: This guest was advised before booking the number of beds available & agreed it wasn't a problem. In addition, all rooms are pictured and beds listed. Our listing is 100% transparent. For a group of 20 somethings, "messy" is an interesting description, especially considering the state the house was left in upon their departure.

BEWARE!!!! Don't make the same mistake we did.

  • 1 of 5

This home was filthy! We were charged a cleaning fee to enter so they can clean after us, but we ended up sweeping, mopping her entire home, cleaned restrooms, and wiped down counters and walls upon arrival. We even had to rewash all linens. It's ridiculous how low her cleanliness standard is. The "clean" sheets on the beds were stained and had what looked like urine, the windows appeared as if they had not been cleaned in months, the down stairs had no blinds, and there was a pooped smudged pillow that was flipped over to conceal it. The restroom floors were sticky and if that weren't enough, our linens had fur! I swept up loads of fur, and dirt along with pet food, yet, according to Kate, her house keeper had just cleaned the night before. She had the audacity to tell me that as she walked in on me and my husband cleaning her home. She even blew me off to go load the towels into the dryer. But wait! When we arrived, what really was upsetting, was the horrifying smell of filth/vomit/dirt and animal urine. It was seriously a smell that causes an instant fringe of the nose and a upset stomach. Upon our rental expenses, we bought $175 of plug in air freshners, cleaning supplies, linens and air mattresses. We seriously tried sleeping in her beds, but after waking up because we smudged our face too much into her linens and pillows and ate fur, we preferred to not expose our infants to such atrocity and purchased sheets and air up mattresses as well. This home needs TLC. Oh, and after the awful weekend with the family, we ended up waiting a week and a half to receive only a PARTIAL damage refund because, she said we had too many dirty linens, we had a full 10 gallon trash can of diapers (the only one in her 3000 foot home may I add) and that we left toys in the yard (we didn't even spend much time there), we didn't arrange her furniture properly, after we moved it (was moved to sweep and mop) and she even said we hung underwear on a tree! It's surprising how low people can stoop. But as far as I know, none of that is considered damage. We paid a cleaning fee so she could actually clean after us, but obviously cleaning doesn't necessarily get done. Also, don't be fooled by her "sweet" voice.

I imagine there may be a few of you whom will doubt the truthfulness of my review, but believe me, if this allowed me to post the pictures I took, I would! Now if you are a serious inquirer and would like to see the "quality" of home, email me, I'd be glad to share.

Owner's Response: Please read all reviews. This one is clearly off base and speaks to the mental state of the guest. Thankfully, they will not be returning.
