About This Listing
Our 3 bedroom duplex is cozy, yet spacious for 2 guests. It is centrally located, within walking distance to downtown and NAU, with proximity to public transportation as well as eateries and stores, and urban trails that access the beautiful forest.
Our space is cozy and comfortable and relaxing, yet close enough to downtown to get some fun in! The proximity to shops, urban trails, NAU and downtown can't be beat!
Your bedroom is large and spacious for 2, with a large private bathroom as well with toiletries included.
Our space: A living room with comfy couch and piano, as well as other instruments and TV to stream internet TV (Roku).
A large kitchen where you have your own fridge, with laundry access as well. We always provide coffee, tea, fruit and basic breakfast items like toast/waffles/bagels. However, David is available as a personal chef for an extra fee for whatever meal you'd like, and can be made to your dietary preference.
We also compost and recycle to limit our impact on the earth, and have a grey water system connected to the laundry. **we are in the midst of working on our outdoor space, so it's a bit messy at the moment**
Bikes are available during the nicer weather for use.
The Area: A large shopping plaza is ten min walk away with various restaurants, shops and a health food store, plus an REI. Public bus transportation is easily accessible.
We also have a park nearby at the Sawmill (5-10 min walk) with gazebo, picnic tables, BBQ grills, and an environmental center (Willow Bend), as well as a labyrinth nearby, built using Flagstaff lava rock. There is an urban trail you can catch heading south from Lone Tree that instantly takes you to nature, full of Flagstaff's Ponderosa Pine forest.

Interaction with Guests
We like to be present for guest welcoming and a brief tour, unless arrival conflicts with our schedule, as sometimes arrival times may change. In that case, other arrangements are made for keys, etc. We are available but respect guests preference for host interaction and have spanned a wide spectrum from having dinner together to barely seeing each other- it varies, but we are social in nature and enjoy good conversation, but are respectful of your space and desire for interaction.
Flagstaff South Side- historic, with lots of new recent housing, which is mostly college aged people, so keep in mind that this area is more active and lively. The area is great for walking most places, being close to the heart of the city, and the proximity to downtown. There is also the ease of access to urban trails (great for walking, running, biking) and be in the middle of nature in 20 minutes. There is also proximity to the Willow Bend Environmental Center with a small park, gazebo, and community areas with trails that connect to the urban trails which are used for running & biking. Also, the ease of access to our public transportation system (Mountain Line), and Greyhound.
There are so many options! We have the Mountain Line bus system, which is very good. Also the AZ shuttle can drop you off at Amtrak station which is 20 min walk away, or a 5 min drive. Greyhound Bus Depot is about 15 min walk away, or a very short drive. Plus walking and biking are easy options.

Kira and David were both welcoming and warm. The space was cozy and well kept. The location was great, across the street from a Whole Foods and restaurants. It was just a short walk from downtown and NAU. They were so kind and accommodating when had to leave town early due to a work emergency, they were kind enough to refund us our money. We very much enjoyed our stay with Kira!
Kira was very welcoming upon arrival, and checked in with me during the drive to ascertain ETA in order to make sure she was home upon my arrival. Bedroom was nice and more than adequate, and definitely as described. Futon bed was surprisingly comfortable and linens were very nice and luxurious too.
Just under ten minute walk to historic downtown and all of the art galleries, restaurants/eateries, bars and shops. Kira was very accommodating throughout the stay and was especially helpful with options for a hike (even provided a book by a local hiker/author) as well as a breakfast place before the drive home. Best breakfast ever !! (Criollo). I would stay here again and look forward to returning to Flagstaff and Sedona.
Kira and David were wonderful hosts. The room was comfortable and the location was perfect -- very convenient for campus and downtown access.
Kira is a naturally welcoming person, and David was kind as well. Was great to be met on arrival and shown all details (of food, kitchen, bath, etc) and have all questions answered. My time in Flagstaff was pretty full and I appreciated the freedom I felt to come and go. They made coming and going really easy and were clear about their lives and times over the weekend as well. After the initial conversation, we mostly communicated by notes, which was totally fine.
The availability of bike use was a surprise and delight.
I'm was a first-time airbnb user and was thrilled to have the quality of a home...bedroom with new carpet...comfortable futon with lovely sheets and duvet...private (email hidden) an affordable price.
I'd stay there again.
Kara was very accommodating with a late check in. We were keeping to ourselves and they respected our space. We didn't see them the whole weekend. Friendly couple, cozy room with the futon bed. We may opt for a bed next time cause our bodies are getting old! But for a last minute roof over our heads this was perfect!
