Where Beauty & Function Meet

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 plus our fuzzy dog had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The home design was well thought out and met everyone of our needs. The large kitchen was a pleasure to cook in which we did every night. The private, fenced in backyard was dreamy with outstandingly "butte-iful" views. The beds were all comfortable and especially appreciated after long, wonderful days hiking Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, and Grand Staircase Escalante. Having a washer and drier was so convenient since the hikes can leave you pretty dusty and dirty. A sign of a great time in our book! The master shower was incredible with a rainfall showerhead and side jets. The living room wasn't used much since we were out exploring most of the time but we did enjoy the comfy couches on an occasional morning or evening. This was the first rental house we have been in with live plants. It immediately felt like home.

The only downside for us was that all the pans are Teflon (not healthy) and some highway noise when we had the windows open. These were minor issues when compared with the fantastic location and accommodations. Kanab and the surrounding area offers so much beauty and a world to explore. When we return, we would love to stay again! Thank you Melody for all of the information and making our stay so pleasant. Great home and owner that we will highly recommend to family and friends.

Big Rooms, Big back courtyard, on nice sized acrage

  • 5 of 5

The house has a split bedroom plan. It has an open living kitchen between the bedrooms which worked great for us. The kitchen is user friendly and well stocked with utensils. The view from the living room is to the south and is very captivating. There is ample paved parking for 4 cars with a lot of unpaved areas for parking, no covered parking. Kanab is <10 minutes away with good grocery stores, quaint shops and restaurants.

Great home base to explore Zion, Escalante, and Bryce.

  • 5 of 5

Great home for our family of 5. Had everything we needed. We were able to explore all the national parks close by except Cedar Breaks. The road from the Kaman side was still closed April 3rd. We really enjoyed the home.

We loved our stay at the property. The location is perfect and wonderful for star gazing at night and enjoying the red rocks during the day. We came out to volunteer at Best Friends and enjoy some local hiking and we had a hard time leaving. The owners were very accommodating and easy to reach with any questions. We will be back for another stay!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Home was very comfortable and great for our extended family of 7 to stay in. We stayed 3 nites, and the amenities made it a very relaxing place to stay. The ability to cook all meals (especially due to food allergies ) is great, as well as being able to wash up clothes. We had 3 generations and the layout of the house was very conducive for the little ones to sleep while the others visited. Overall very nice place to stay.
