This rental was one of the best rentals we ever had. The owners were very prompt in responding to our inquiry and were prompt in responding to us during our stay. They were always a phone call or text msg away. The house was roomy and very clean.There was one discovery while staying there, the blender didn't work. I did not see the blender as an issue but they arrived at the house with a new blender in less than 30 minutes! Plus, the chef's knife, for all of you cooks out there was brand new. They truly take pride in this house and made our vacation very enjoyable.
Our vacation was with 4 people instead of 5, due to a last minute change. Even with five people, 3 adults and 2 teenage boys, there would've been plenty of space to move around and relax and we never felt cramped. This house is truly equipped for families with small children as well. I was impressed. We grilled in the backyard almost every night. They had great grilling utensils and a 4 burner grill. We even made s'mores for desert at night. The TV was great! Who goes on vacation to watch TV? We watched the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup on that ginormous TV. It was great! There are a couple of coolers in the garage for use and I highly recommend utilizing them, even if it is just for water.
We visited the Grand Canyon from the east and from the south entrances. We recommend the east approach, since there are less people. We went on a floating raft trip with raftthecanyon.com. The rafting trip was definitely a highlight. We recommend that one for all ages. We even went to Vegas for a day. I know that excursion was a request from the teenagers. They rode some roller coasters and took in the sites and got a lecture about gambling. The drive was scenic and not too bad. Just make sure you are aware that there is a lot of wildlife around the roads and highways and can be difficult to see at night. We also visited Sedona and took in the beautiful sites.
We had some amazing adventures and it was truly comforting knowing that we had this house to come home to. We will be telling everyone we know. We hope to visit again.
