The space
NEW:
Due to Covid-19 Cooties, only one couple at a time so bathroom is now fully PRIVATE.

A few important items:
~We are a TRUE Bed and Breakfast! Not a motel/hotel/lodge calling itself a B&B
~The $35 GCNP entrance pass (not included here) is good for the whole week! So, consider staying more than a night. Park pass is good for the North Rim too.
Note: The "SkyWalk" it NOT part of the South Rim. Use your favorite search engine for further info on SkyWalk.
~In the area, many Airbnb places charge an additional cleaning fee...We do NOT!

Now, here we go!
________________

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY is a European styled B&B and the CLOSEST B&B to the GRAND CANYONS SOUTH RIM! We're only 19 MILES (20 minutes) from the GCNP entrance gates! 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!
The 3-tiered fountain 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.

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 full-bath right next to the bedroom. 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.

****BREAKFAST SPECIFICS****
-A one-night stay includes our SOUTH RIM BREAKFAST PICNIC (packed "to~go").
-Two nights includes our South Rim Breakfast Picnic and our leisurely, sit-down YUMMY-FOR-YOUR-TUMMY southwestern style breakfast, served at approx 9:30am.
OR if you're really on the move and don't have time for the leisurely sit-down then The Picnic would be the way to go 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!

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..

Pets here are family! So, if you have allergies bring along proper medication, if needed. Pet's are not allowed in the guest rooms, unless invited. 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 all previous "Peeps". She has one cat, LoverBoy.

We're a bit flexible, up here, Grand Canyon way. So, if you have further questions, not answered here, or special requests, send them on over and let's see what we can do. I look forward to talking with you soon!

Guest access
Guests are welcome in common areas and will get a quick walk-through of "Rainbow" house.
The county restricts kitchen use! However, using the microwave and putting a few things in the fridge are okay.

Other things to note
There is very limited cell service in the area.

NOTE: We are on INTERNET SATELLITE which does NOT have an UN~limited option. So, for now, WI-FI IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR GUEST USE. Broadband is so limited we barely get through a month just for our normal use. At this point, too pricey to share. : (
However, all is not lost. You can use your smart phone as a hot spot. Virtually all providers work here but we can NOT GUARANTEE THIS. Too many variables.
Also, if you must be plugged~in, there are several wifi/internet places in Tusayan. Not sure about inside The Park.
IF there is an internet emergency, I'm sure we can work it out.

HUGE APOLOGIES for this inconvenience!! It's one of the prices paid for living out in the middle-of-now here. Fingers-crossed this may change in the not~too~distant future. For now, it is what it is.
THANK YOU for your understanding on this matter!!

*******************************
For now, due to Corona virus, we only take two people at a time so toilette is PRIVATE! This could change sometime in 2021.
-----------------------
In the future, we may open the other room up for those rare "sold~out in the area" times. Remember we are a REAL B&B so, if this is a huge concern (sharing a bath) feel free to contact me and we can chat. Chances are this won't impact your stay. I just want to put it out~there so all our potential Peeps (aka guests) know about this slight possibility. : ) Again, feel free to touch~base about this or any concern.

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.
