Seventy five minutes to the Grand Canyon, forty five minutes to Sedona, twenty minutes to Snowbowl ski area [sky ride in summer/fall], forty five minutes to the Navajo reservation, and 2 hours to the Hopi mesas.
Coconino National Forest begins right across the street, lots of prime opportunities for hiking, biking, cross country skiing and relaxing.
We are 2.5 miles from downtown Flagstaff off hwy 180 on the way to the Grand Canyon, just past the Museum Of Northern Arizona.
The city bus line stops next to our house 14 times a day. The bus costs $ 1 per ride.
We also have plenty of free parking.
We interact as much or as little with our guests as they prefer and our schedules allow.
Jim was super helpful, giving us a lot of advance info on what to see in the Grand Canyon area, and because of that we saw much more than we would have, so we are most appreciative of that.
The room was fine, though the bed moves a lot when someone moves. One thing to know is that the main floor bedroom has a set of doors that face the dining room/kitchen area, so when YOU wake up depends on when the other guests are in the kitchen...
Communication was via a welcome note, but we were a bit confused as to when they were going to be in the house. We were there by ourselves the first night (we think?) - we figured out J&J were away for the weekend (texting was sporadic as they weren't in a place that had good coverage). As city dwellers we didn't feel super comfortable being asked (a note on door) not to lock the front door, but guess that's just a difference of living in small, obviously safe neighbourhood. :) We woke up the next morning realizing someone had come into the house at some point, as a patio door we had locked the night before was open. Not sure if someone from the other room (on the other side of the house) had actually been there the whole time?
Parking was right out front. Breakfast basics appreciated.
Flag is a neat city, loads of restaurants and things to see. We were only a few minutes drive away.
Great stay. Booked the night before, I didn't have signal to contact Jim and Jackie as of when I was coming in, and everything still worked out. There place was amazing, and great location to see both the Grand Canyon and sedona.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience being hosted by Jim & Jackie. The room was very nice, clean, bed was very comfortable and the A/C was very cold during the recent heat wave in Flag. Jim was extremely helpful & knowledgeable about the area, sightseeing and he is also (email hidden). He lent us hiking poles and a map which was very much appreciated. They also served a light breakfast each morning which was very thoughful and also appreciated.
The house is close to Flagstaff (real nice small city) and is perfect to access the Grand Canyon. Room, bathroom, kitchen - everything is clean, nice and looks exactly like the pics show.
BUT - the best thing is: Jim is the perfect guide for very special Grand Canyon tours. He knows everything in detail and can give a lot of important advices if you go on your own. He has a 4WD Pickup to take you to all the other secret places you will never see alone. Ask for a tour beside the mainstream, Jim takes care of everything: water, maps, breakfast, wine, sunset (ok, sunset was not from Jim...), it was perfect prepared.
I didn't expect to have this experience. It was so amazing to go with him and I enjoyed it!
To mention this - after such a weekend it is really hard to go back to the daily business... Consider this!
We had a wonderful, relaxing time staying at Jim and Jackie's. They were most gracious and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We only regret that we couldn't linger a little longer and enjoy the home and everything Flagstaff has to offer. We especially enjoyed meeting Jim and chatting over a delicious breakfast and coffee. We hope to come back and visit again.
This is the third time staying with Jim and Jackie. They are gems! Quiet, comfortable accommodations with great flexibility. It is so nice having breakfast with them in the morning and catching up. We have become fast friends via airbnb!
Jim and Jackie were friendly and happy to give helpful recommendations for places worth a visit. The room was clean and quite big as was the bathroom, everything nicely decorated. The breakfast was also good.
Jim is a lovely and easygoing person!
His house is comfortable!
Unfortunatelly I've spent less time than I could wish with him, but I really would stay again with!
Jim service and advise were great
Clean, comfy, and quiet. Highly recommend. It's a pity that we didnt hv chance to meet Jim and Jackie in person, but they made sure everything's perfectly arranged. I love their cat, too!
