Sitting at the base of gorgeous red sandstone cliffs and nestled within junipers, this little house is the perfect place for escape and relaxation. The location allows hiking right out the back door, as well as easy access to some of the southwest's most spectacular hiking and scenery. Our house is furnished and stocked as if it were our own full-time residence, and therefore should provide you with a carefree vacation from the moment you arrive. All you will need to provide are groceries for your favorite meals.
Shower with high-pressure showerhead and teak 'mats'.
We love the desert climate (warm days & cool nights) and the passive solar engineering in this house. In summer, we and most of our guests find that opening the many windows at night, using the ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room, and closing the windows and blinds during the day during the hottest months keeps the house comfortable. However, some people prefer air conditioning, which this house does not have, so please plan accordingly. Also note that due to rural setting, cell coverage varies by carrier....we now have a Verizon booster that provides excellent reception for Verizon customers and that may work with other carriers as well....moreless

Kanab is central to major outdoor attractions such as Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Paria Canyon, and Lake Powell. Plus, you will have red-rock hiking right out the back door!
About the owner: Welcome to our slice of paradise. We currently live in the Pacific Northwest, with our cat Scout. We feel blessed to have such a special place, and we are pleased to be able to share its magic with you.
Why the Owner Chose Kanab: We have backpacked and hiked throughout the southwest, and love this location for its rich scenary, numerous recreational opportunities and abundant sunshine. The simplicity of this house allows it to fit within the landscape without competing with it. We return from visits to this house renewed and touched by this beautiful country and wish that for each of you as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The property is close enough to Kanab to allow easy dining and shopping, but far enough outside the city to provide privacy and quiet. You very well may find yourself torn between the desire to relax in the chairs outside enjoying the peaceful setting, the draw of nearby spectacular national and state parks, or a visit with the wonderful people and furry beneficiaries at Best Friends Animal Society.
