Please note: We are a TRUE Bed and Breakfast! Not just a room inside a house.
The $25 entrance pass (not included) is good for the whole week...so think about staying more than one night. The park pass is also good for the North Rim too. That being said...
HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY is a European styled B&B and the CLOSEST B&B to the GRAND CANYONS SOUTH RIM! We're only 20 minutes away from the GCNP entrance gates! All stays, over $159, include breakfast (See below for specifics.) We have 20 acres of peace, quiet and serenity with super-easy and DIRECT ACCESS on/off AZ HWY 64 (to Grand Canyon) with free parking right out in front!
A water feature out back draws elk, deer, pronghorn sheep (aka antelope), various raptors, songbirds, hummingbirds, bunnies, coyotes and native wildlife too various to mention. We are a Certified Wildlife Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation.
Also, you can actually see stars and the Milky Way horizon-to-horizon, especially on new moon nights! However, full-moon nights are something to experience too. These are just a few special qualities you'll experience here, oh-so-close, to the Grand Canyon.
Before we get started, please note: Rooms accommodate TWO persons ONLY.
Offered is The HUMMINGBIRD ROOM. After a big day at the Grand Canyon, there is a queen super-pillowtop bed for your comfy-cozy visit to dreamy-dreamland. There is a SHARED full-bath w/the Pilot Room. If calendar shows booked, and you'd really like to stay with us, drop me an line/inquiry and I may be able to help.
As there has been a bit of confusion and I don't want anyone disappointed, PLEASE, NOTE: Any rate less than $159 include coffee/tea and homemade banana bread (not our standard breakfasts listed below).
-Overnight stay includes our packed "to-go" SOUTH RIM BREAKFAST PICNIC.
-Two nights includes our South Rim Breakfast Picnic and our leisurely, sit-down YUMMY-FOR-YOUR-TUMMY southwestern style breakfast. Or if you're really on the move and don't have time for a leisurely breakfast (served between 8:30a-9a, the Picnic is available both mornings.
-A three nights retreat includes two picnics and a sit-down. Or three picnics if you'd like.
-Four+ nights...let's talk!
Our South Rim Breakfast Picnic is fab for a sunrise breakfast on The Rim or to take along if you hit the road early.
Our Yummy-for-Your-Tummy breakfast can be taken out back under the umbrellas where you can enjoy the wide-open spaces and various birds (especially hummingbirds in spring/summer-though numbers start to dwindle by mid-Sept). Who knows, maybe an elk or coyote might trot by. Either is a lovely way to start the day.
Again, OFF-SEASON RATES LESS THAN $159 INCLUDES COFFEE/TEA or JUICE AND HOMEMADE BANANA BREAD. If your rate is less than standard and would like full-breakfasts let me know as there are ways to handle this..
We are flexible up here Grand Canyon way. So, please, if you have further questions or special requests send them on over and let's see what can be done. Look forward to talking w/you soon.
Let it be known pets on property. So, if you have allergies bring along proper medication, if needed, or an aversion to pet hair, please do not stay with us.
Cookie-Monster, our large medium-sized lab mix is a work in progress (a rescue w/diminishing trust issues thanks to the kindness of previous guests). She has two cats. LoverBoy and Razzle-(website hidden) was born under the house (feral). RD is no longer a visitor but permanent addition to the HHJJ crew. He loves people, will head-butt you and purr loudy. Don't be surprised if he comes visit you in your room so, keep door shut if you don't want a kitty visit.
Rates are subject to change until you are a confirmed guest.
Guests are welcome in the common areas and will get a quick walk-through the "Rainbow" house.
The county restricts kitchen use! However, using the microwave and putting a few things in the fridge are okay with me.
Interaction with Guests
This is my home so will, more often than not, be around to answer any questions and give a point in the right direction, if needed.
There is no public transportation in the area. Once inside Grand Canyon National Park, there is free shuttle service.
Also, bike rentals are available around the Visitor Center.
Other Things to Note
There is very limited cell/internet service in the area.
I have moved internet provider and continue to have HUGE issues with connectivity. And until these issues are resolved, working consistently and smoothly, please, DO NOT EXPECT to use internet service on property! There are serveral wi-fi connections available in Tusayan (not sure about The Canyon).

SK was a very welcoming and friendly host. The accomodation was exactly as (website hidden) know her area well and had lots of good advice. Dog and cats were a very pleasant surprise- all very friendly and well behaved, rally adding a home deal to being away. We didn't take full advantage of SK's breakfast offering but we suggest others do if her banana bread is anything to go by! We definitely recommend SK to others
Sally could not have been nicer and gave us such great recommendations as we continued our trip. Our arrival time was later than intended and our morning started very early but we were still made to feel so welcomed.
The stay at Sally's place was very nice. Location was perfect distance to get out of the crowded areas and still be within a short distance to drive to the Park. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean. Sally was exceptionally hospitable and helpful with directions and planning. Comfortable experience. Would recommend staying there.
Wonderful stay! We really enjoyed Sally's recommendation for sighting seeing in and around the Grand Canyon! Also, the bed was EXTREMELY comfortable!
This was my first time using airbnb, and I have to say that Sally set the bar very high!! Our stay here was absolutely wonderful. The house is exactly as listed, and even cooler at night time! Every room walking through the house is a different color, coordinating with the Chakras. She spoiled us rotten with thoughtful little treats, and after a day of hiking we sat in the indigo vibes and laughed over cocktails. She is so full of energy and good vibrations. (wait till you see how she calls her kitties) :)
Very beautiful place, so glad to be a part of it. Will definitely return here next time I'm near the Grand Canyon.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING SALLY! xoxoooo
Sally has got to be one of the sweetest souls I've ever encountered. And her home totally reflects that. She wanted to make sure I felt comfortable from the very start of our communications. She provided me with so many suggestions of what to see and where to go not only around the Grand Canyon area, but also other places on my journey south into Scottsdale. She also had towels, a water bottle, and even a chocolate waiting for me on my bed upon arrival. And if you're looking for stars well, "twinkle, twinkle, Baby!" Sally's property is amazingly quiet and dark. Perfect for stargazing. The next morning, she had coffee with all of the fixings and yummy banana bread waiting for me. Sally has thought of so many small details, she really did make me feel at home. I can't wait to comeback and stay again!
Sally is a friendly host. She prepared a lot for our coming including all the information we need, the water and welcome candy. The house is so beautiful and close to Grand Canyon. If you choose to visit the park and don't like the hotel, here is a good choice. It just spends 25 minutes to drive to the park and very quiet.
Let me share my little piece of heaven/paradise with you!
It's all about Relax, Retreat, Regroup up here near one of the most beautiful, spiritual & inspiring places on Earth.
Know the area well. For two years, when a teenager, worked in Reservations at the General Offices inside The Park. Graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff (NAU). After graduating, taught at Tuba City Jr High on the Navajo Reservation. In Phoenix, played radio for 15 yrs (Why work for a living when you can play radio?) It turned into a job so, was time for me to go. Returned to the Grand Canyon area and, oh my goodness, have been back for 13 (or is it 14) years.
