Flagstaff is a lovely town and Jim and Jackie can be the best Ambassadors.
The place was exactly as described, comfortable and warm. Bonus, it's only one and a half hour drive to the Grand Canyon and 45 minutes to Sedona.
Jim and Jackie are welcoming, accommodating, trusting and easy going. If one is into Organic food, that's the only thing they have in the house, you will be up for a treat during breakfast. Even the toiletries are the best from the famous Trader Joe's.
The accommodation will satisfy most people's needs and wants.
Just spent a memorable week there,
Jim and Jackie were the perfect hosts and exceeded our expectations. I reserved their room for my parents who were visiting from Florida. You could see the apprehension in my parents' faces when they first arrived, but that was quickly squashed with our hosts wonderful personalities and helpfulness along with the beautifully ornate house. I would suggest staying with Jim and Jackie to anyone who was visiting Flagstaff. Next time we'll try to get their beautiful apartment, which is only $10 additional a night.
What an amazing time we had! Jim and Jackie were wonderful and the town was amazing.
I really enjoyed my trip with Jim and Jackie. Throughout the experience, they were quick to respond to my communication. The room/suite they put me in was so adorable. I wish I could've stayed longer. They also had little personal touches like a tea pot and a few toiletry items.
Jim also gave me an awesome tip about a special "secret" spot at the Grand Canyon. I'm so grateful for that!!
I highly recommend booking with this couple. I hope to make it back sometime.
I was in Phoenix for a conference and had a few days to myself where my significant other was able to meet me for a weekend away in Flagstaff. We decided on Jim and Jackie's place and it was one of the best decisions made that trip. The house is beautiful, Jim and Jackie were beyond friendly and welcoming, and Jim's insight on where to go see the sites and where to avoid made it the perfect weekend out for city people like ourselves. Also, the adorable kitty was a plus.
Me and my friend checked into Jim and Jackie's house after they left for their holidays, so we never actually met. But they prepared everything for us (house was warm, there was lots of food in the fridge, bathroom was filled with toiletries for us to use, there was nice Welcome letter with instructions on the dining table...). We rented a room, but were able to use the whole first floor of their house, which was really pleasant and comfortable experience.
Everything was in accordance with the description of their place on web page. We had lots of space, the house is located on pieceful location, neighbours are nice, and Flagstaff has everything needed 10 or 15 minutes' drive away from their place, including last minute kiropractic appointment my friend needed. The house is located in very pieceful and safe neighbourhood.
We enjoyed the (electrical) fireplace in the living room, the paintings and little details about how the house if furnished, very pleasant wooden floor in living room, comfortable bathroom. It was great to be able to regulate the temperature on our own since it was really cold outside
We appreciate the trust they have shown us by letting us use their house while they were gone. They were also very helpful when we needed to change our plans due to snow storm, and they agreed that we arrive two days later than scheduled.
I also appreciate that I could have my little dog with me, since lots of house owners do not want to accept guests with dogs no matter how well behaving and clean they are.
I can definitely recommend staying at Jim's and Jacie's place to everyone who wants to visit Grand Canyon, skiing resorts around Flagstaff, Sedona and other amazing places in that area.
The most amazing airbnb experience we have ever had! Jim and Jackie were so lovely and kind to us and so welcoming. There house was absolutely beautiful and clean and so well presented. Little Jackie (a stuffed teddy) on our bed was a nice homely touch. It is a true bed and breakfast experience and what you would expect to experience at airbnb.
We chose to stay with Jim and Jackie because of how close they were to the grand canyon but if (and when) we return to Arizona I will be staying with them purely due to their hospitality.
They were so nice and cooked breakfast for us and then cleaned up after us (as Jackie kept saying you're on vacation so you don't clean) and really helped us enjoy our time in USA.
Jim was so full of knowledge and information and showed us a side of Arizona you definitely would not expect to see. It was beautiful and interesting and very well worth the time.
To anyone looking to stay in flagstaff make this place your first choice!! You deserve the experience and Jim and Jackie will make your stay well worth it. And speak to Jim about his tours you won't regret it.
