We had a great visit here. We love that we can see the train from the house, the fireplace and the hot tub! Thank you!

Great cozy home for multi-family stay

  • 5 of 5
Our large family (including 7 grandchildren) stayed in this clean and cozy home in Williams AZ after our day trip to the Grand Canyon. This place is conveniently located 1 hr south of the Grand Canyon so it was super convenient as we were driving back to the Phoenix, AZ area.

Cameron was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our stay. During our stay, the adults had a great time BBQ-ing outdoors and relaxing in the jacuzzi while the kids played on the swing set and trampoline. Since it was end-of-October the weather was chilly, but the house heater worked well and everyone was toasty and comfortable. Return of the direct deposit was super fast too.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Would definitely stay here again.

Nice, clean, but hottub down and had to shovel out

  • 3 of 5
Property was nice and clean and worked well for our two families (10 people) once the kids got over having to sleep more than one per room. Dinner table a little small for that many people, but saved a lot of money cooking ourselves. The location was convenient to the interstate to get to activities (as long as it is open as we experienced it being closed because of snow). We also had to dig ourselves out when it was time to leave (reportedly a function of the landlord being out of town when we were there). I would stay there again but would look elsewhere as well.

Great family time in Williams railway retreat!

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful house, big enough for Grandpa and Grandma to bring the grandkids, which loved the trampelin in the yard. Was close to many side trips we took and dinner in town was nice. The house was clean, we did have a problem with the DVD player but we made the best of it with playing games with the kids. If in the area again we would stay here again.

Great Williams Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We were a large group (3 families) spending the weekend in Williams to visit the Grand Canyon, Bearizona, etc. The home was well accommodating for the 15 of us (6 adults, 9 kids). The kids really enjoyed the loft bedroom and the trampoline. The adults enjoyed the clean, well-maintained and upgraded home and accommodations. We made most of our meals in the kitchen, with many of the amenities provided and available. The home was as represented, if more impressive in person than the photos.
Cameron was very responsive with all of my requests and questions, and I'd definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in Williams or visit the Grand Canyon! Don't miss Bearizona - also a unique experience!

Williams is a lovely town!!

  • 4 of 5
The railway retreat was well-appointed and the inside was just lovely! The beds were quite comfortable and the layout was nice. It is very close to town, and we enjoyed walking downtown for meals and entertainment with the our family. Our boys just LOVED the trampoline and the loft. The trampoline kept them busy and smiling. The King Sized beds were nice and the sheets & mattress toppers were quite comfy. The living room with the vaulted ceilings was really beautiful. The full sized washer and dryer were put to good use and worked very well!

A few things that might be improved upon, or would have been nice to know before we arrived:
* There are freight trains coming through every night - VERY loudly.

* our oldest son found 1/2 dozen rusty nails in the dirt driveway where we were parked - a quick once over with an industrial magnet should solve that easily

* there is no ac - just a swamp cooler

* the hot tub had hair floating in it when we opened it - our kiddos used it once, developed rashes & we all decided not to go in it the rest of the time

* There weren't any spa towels that we found. It worked out okay since the boys only used the spa once, but they had to use their bath towels when they got out. No biggie, I just washed them when they were done, so they would have bath towels for the evening.

* the grass in the back yard was completely dead, but still very tall and un-mowed - I understand that the grass dies in the winter here, but we were surprised the yard had not been kept up & the walk way was also full of weeds

* WiFi is very slow. For most on vacation that would be just fine, but my husband had to work in the mornings, so it was a bit slow for what he needed.

* The ceiling fans (especially in the master) could use a really good cleaning. We thought the fan was white, but after my dad had major allergy attacks when he went into the master bedroom, we looked more closely and saw that the fan was wicker and just full of dust.

* The couch was a pull out couch, but the mattress had been taken out. So the couch cushions sunk really low and it was hard to sit in. We easily fixed this by putting the decorative couch cushions under the regular couch cushions for support.

* The property sleeps up to 10 (we were a party of 6) and there were only 4 regular sized spoons. Some additional silverware would be helpful.

This was a really beautiful house, but I feel that for the price, some amenities were lacking.

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting a review of your stay, we are glad to have your input and glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are very sorry that you had such a list of items that were not perfect for your stay and we will look into all of them that need attention immediately. Here is a few explanations for your concerns:

- We apologize for the train noise, obviously this is out of our control, however it must have been an exceptionally busy weekend for trains because this is the first complaint we have had about the noise levels.

- In Williams with the high temperatures that we reach we have never had a need for A\C in the house. As a matter of fact only 2% of the houses in Williams have A\C units. During our time living at the house for 6 years we never had anything other then the Evaporative Cooler and we were always comfortable. We do plan on installing A\C on the house in the near future to make our guests more comfortable if they like cooler temperatures.

- The Jacuzzi is drained, cleaned and re-filled with fresh water after every use. I am not sure why your kids had a breakout, but I am going to check into it and find out. We are refunding you your jacuzzi fee today for your troubles.

- We apologize about the grass in the rear yard but we are on level 2 water restrictions in Williams and we are not allowed to water it at all. I have hauled several loads of water to the house to try and keep up with the lawn but it requires more water than I can haul. Usually the lawn in the years past during this time is one of the many highlights of the stay but this is out of our control this year due to major water problems in Williams that have made national news.

- We have always heard the Wi-Fi was very fast and more than enough for several items to be using it at the same time. I will check speeds today and make sure it is running at its full potential. I am hoping that you were logged into the right internet?

- New additional silverware is already purchased and being added tomorrow.

We really do appreciate your feedback, we try and make your stay as great as it can be. We really take pride in the fact the house is clean, cozy & fun. We sincerely appreciate your business.

God Bless You.
