For Father’s Day weekend, I decided to book an Airbnb up north for our family. Being in the mountains is one of Jason’s favorite things to do, and since we had the time available, I went for it! Here is an honest review of the Airbnb we booked in Munds Park. Included are also 3 Reasons To Stay In Munds Park For The Weekend.
3 Reasons To Stay In Munds Park For The Weekend
When deciding where to go up North, I looked at Flagstaff, Sedona, Prescott and Munds Park. I landed on Munds Park for 3 reasons:
1. It’s More Affordable
Everywhere else I looked was overpriced and expensive. And I get it! Prices are up, gas is high, inflation is real and everyone wants to travel. We found a very affordable Airbnb that we were looking forward to staying at! (More on that below.) We brought a lot of our food and the goal was to rest and relax. We had a great weekend doing exactly that!
2. It’s Quieter
Since it’s not quite all the way to Flagstaff, it does have a quieter and more small town vibe. There wasn’t traffic, it wasn’t loud, families with small kids were around, and lots of pet owners. Which is great because we brought our pup Bear too! We enjoyed the slower pace without tons of options. It was surprisingly refreshing.
3. It’s Accessible
While it’s removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s also close enough to access it all! It’s only 20 minutes to Flagstaff so we were able to head to Mama Burger on Saturday for lunch- which was amazing BTW. Sedona is only 20-30 minutes away as well as other towns that are up north too. It was easy to access from the highway but the perfect distance from more if we wanted that!
All in all, we would 100% visit Munds Park again. In fact, we are dreaming about buying a cabin there, that’s how much we loved it! We stayed at THIS Airbnb for the weekend and had a great experience. It was affordable, minimal, a great place for kids to play, and very clean!
What We Liked:
- The double loft- our kids played upstairs the whole time!
- The board games offered. We had a ton of fun!
- The beds were comfortable.
- The treehouse in the back was an added bonus!
- It was easy to find & close to everything.
- The neighbors were great!
- The sunlight poured in in the mornings in a really great way which made it really cozy!
- The porch was awesome & made it easy yo leave the sliding doors open to enjoy the weather.
What We Didn’t Like:
- We went in June and we could not figure out how to turn the AC on to cool the house. The property manager didn’t respond until hours later, so the house sat at 84 degrees all day. We opened the windows, turned on the fans that we could and were worried it was going to be warm the whole weekend.
- The property manager finally contacted us around 9pm and suggested checking the breaker. We did and it worked! The AC was perfect ever since and we had no other issues.
- What I would suggest? Is having a section in their welcome binder for what to do if the AC isn’t turning on. The binder had great tips for the wood burning stove (which we couldn’t use in June) but nothing about the AC. That would have helped us cool the house sooner. Nonetheless, we figured out and it was great! The AC worked wonderfully once we got it turned on.
Overall, we LOVED the cabin that we chose and we would 100% stay there again! It was simple and for the price, it was great. If you’d like to check it out, click HERE.
Staying in Munds Park was so fun and rejuvenating. It’s a hidden gem that I always drove by and now I plan to own a second home there. When deciding where to head up north for the summer, add it to your list! Especially if you’re looking for a slower paced vibe for you and your family.
You won’t regret it!
Until the next trip,
