About Megan Smith

We are Latimer and Megan Smith. We both grew up in Southern Utah and have been residents of Kanab since our high school days. Latimer is the assistant manager for a river rafting company and a Grand Canyon river guide, and Megan, a former backcountry ranger, now runs the rental and works part-time for a non-profit education foundation while staying at home to care for our two children, our friendly dog, Blue, and our turtle, John Keats. We live on the property, so if you'd like, feel free to come over and say hello.

Megan Smith purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Megan Smith chose Kanab

We bought this property because of the amazing views and the quiet neighborhood. We are an outdoor family, and we love the fact that we can be on a trail within minutes of leaving our home. We think you will enjoy it too. We are close to all the local trails and surrounded by national parks and monuments. Come stay!

What makes this cabin unique

We drawn to this home because of its big views. The front of the house looks out toward the Kaibab Plateau where the Grand Canyon lies below. The back of the house affords a magnificent view of what locals call "The Island in the Sky", a small throne of white sandstone among the dark vermilion cliffs. An hour or so of hiking will get you to the Island, also known as Mansard, where a panel of ancient petroglyphs await.

One of our best trips ever

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Megan and Latimer's casita. It was the perfect home base for volunteering at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and visiting Zion and Bryce Canyon. We loved the layout, coziness and privacy of the casita, and enjoyed the hot tub and porch, despite it being January. The owners' dog was away temporarily, so we were able to bring a Best Friends dog over for a sleepover (otherwise we wouldn't have been able to do this, per Best Friends' rules). Everything about the trip was perfect, including this great VRBO stay. I hope we will be able to return someday.

Cute cabin in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Hosts are friendly. Cabin just enough room for 2 people. Very clean with all the amenities you would need. Their dog Blue is a lovely 4 legged creature who likes to stop by and visit.

Secure and comfortable base camp for exploring this amazing area!

  • 5 of 5

I am a solo traveler and stayed at the Kaibab Casita in late September. It is a great location to use as a home base while exploring the surrounding National Parks and Monuments. About a half hour southeast of the East Rim area of Zion, an hour and a half north of Grand Canyon's North Rim, and about an hour west of some great hiking in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument as well as Vermillion Cliffs. I enjoyed being just outside of Kanab for the added solitude while having easy access to the stores and restaurants in town. Megan and Latimer were very welcoming. They gave great advice on hikes in the area. They were easy to reach for questions but definitely respected my privacy. Yes, the Casita is attached to their home, but it still felt very private and secluded. The unit itself was very clean, bigger than it appears in the pictures, and has most everything you need for a short stay. I would definitely stay here again in the future!

Lovely Family hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We love this place and are returning guests. We hope to continue this tradition! The hosts are so welcoming, and every square inch if this Casita is beautiful and prepared for guests with love and care. The bed is very comfortable and everything you could possibly need for a smooth stay is present, including anything kids may need. The setting is gorgeous and we've been very impressed with Kanab for it's proximity to national parks but also the pool, park, best friends animal sanctuary, library, amazing bakery and great restaurants! We highly recommend this Casita whether you're traveling with or without kids.
