This was my second time with Jim and Jackie and we loved it. The place is beautiful and comfortable and they do everything to make you feel welcome! This place comes with great stories and artwork too!
Jim and Jackie are wonderful. The place is beautiful and the bed is very comfortable. Ideally situated, Jim was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some wonderful tips about what to do in the grand canyon and where to go. It was an absolute blessing staying here and talking to Jim before heading into the grand canyon. Unfortunately only stayed for a night but if coming back to the area I would definitely stay here again.
We mostly interacted with Jim but both him and Jackie were great, extremely helpful and they graciously helped me make my proposal to my girlfriend a reality. (Spoiler alert: she said yes)
My plan was to propose to my girlfriend of three years at the Grand Canyon because it has been on her must-see travel list since I have known her. We decided to take a trip to the GC and Sedona, which is when I began researching AirBnB hosts who looked like they would be willing to help me. Jim and Jackie's hundreds of positive reviews convinced me they would not only help us plan the trip but also help with a few engagement plan details. To put it briefly, Jim provided the recommendation for the location for the proposal at the GC; provided recommendations for a nice dinner and a florist; fronted the money for a nice bottle of champagne, purchased and and chilled it; and he set out the flowers and a nice bar of chocolate (gift from them) so it was a surprise when we got back. This was all on top of the regular time he spent with us in the mornings (with a delicious breakfast spread that is superior to any continental breakfast) providing even more recommendations for our trip to the GC and then Sedona. Jim and Jackie helped take care of the small details that I couldn't get to since I wanted them all to be a surprise. All of their recommendations were perfect and I can't thank them enough!
On top of their great hospitality, the room and bathroom was very nice, well decorated and private even though it was on the main floor. Like an upscale hotel, they also provided small amenities (nice towels, bath/shower supplies, etc) that made the trip quite comfortable. While we prefer a firmer bed, it was plush, warm and comfortable.
We didn't take any of Jim's tours but he has several interesting ones on offer as well.
I also need to give a shout out to AirBnB in general. Without their system I would have had to spend much, much more and probably would have received worse support from a concierge service at a hotel. My bet was that an AirBnB was the way to make my proposal plan a reality and with Jim and Jackie it went off without a hitch. I cannot recommend them or their place enough for a trip to the GC and Sedona enough.
Our stay was wonderful! The hosts were so friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and we are looking forward to staying in Flagstaff again.
Jim and Jackie have a beautiful home and they are gracious hosts. Jim gave us great tips for seeing area. Jackie recommended several great restaurants. We would stay there again! I
Arrived with no problems, easy to find just off the main road. Nice comfortable room with private bathroom. Took Jim's tour, although not the best of weather, rain, snow and fog. Did get a few good sights though. I was also pretty tired but got a good nights sleep. Jim was great to chat to, and his Airbnb story should be an advert for them.
