  • Wonderful Place!

    "My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic 5 night stay at the cabin. We wanted a central location to visit Zion NP and Bryce Canyon, and this place was perfect! The cabin is really nicely furnished, clean, and stocked with a lot of essentials (coffee, condiments, cooking essentials, charcoal grill) Not to mention the bed was super comfy. You can tell that the owners put a lot of care into making it a cozy and comfortable stay. They have a lot of literature on local attractions too which was helpful. One night my husband and I accidentally locked ourselves out of the cabin at 10:30 at night while trying to view the stars oops...long story short a nearby neighbor let us use their phone to call Bob & Dru who were kind enough to come to our rescue with a spare key. I can't say enough good things about this place!"

  • Excellent Place!

    "We stayed in the condo for a week, and everything was fantastic. It was clean, well stocked with lots of extra towels, and a very comfortable place to stay. We were volunteering at Best Friends, and it's very close, and was perfect for pets to stay. We are so happy we decided to stay here, and look forward to coming back again next year."

  • The Absolute Best VRBO

    "Your Kanab adventure begins by contacting Chuck and Gay, the owners of Kanab Vistas. Chuck and Gay are the nicest people we have ever worked with when renting a VRBO. They make it so easy to complete your contract and to make payment. When the time for your vacation rolls around, they send you tons of information about the Kanab area and they are always ready to answer your questions. Their response to your emails will be quick and they will provide the information you need in a timely manner. We flew into Las Vegas and rented a vehicle for our transportation while on vacation. You will need a vehicle for this vacation. Chuck and Gay will send you the directions to their home and you will have no problem locating the home as long as you follow the directions. When you arrive, you will most likely be greeted by Oreo the Cat who will become your very best friend during your stay. Oreo is quite a character and he is the most loving animal you will ever get to know. Oreo doesn't actually live at Kanab Vistas but he is rarely gone from the porch or the property. When you return from your day of hiking or having fun, Oreo will come screaming around the porch looking for a pat on the head. He sure made it great fun for us while we were there. If you want information about Oreo, Gay will be glad to tell you all about him. Now for the home. I do not refer to Kanab Vistas as a House because it is truly a home that you can enjoy your time in. From the minute you enter the home, you feel like you have been living there for a long time. The home is spotless and the description on VRBO is completely accurate. Absolutely everything that you will need is in the home. If it is not there, you probably don't need it. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. Both bedrooms have their own entrance to the wrap around porch which is OUTSTANDING. From Kanab Vistas you can visit Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon and many other National Parks or you can just hike out from Kanab Vistas which is located near plenty of trails. If you are an animal lover, you should visit Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and see how dedicated those folks are to our animal friends who inhabit this planet with us. A more dedicated group of individuals cannot be found. I could go on about what a great property this is but I am running out of room. We use VRBO quite often and this home is the best we have ever had. Thank you."

  • Wonderful spacious, clean apartment in a great location.

    "The apartment was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and even included a dishwasher, washer and dryer and garbage disposal. The internet and tv worked perfectly and there was shaded dedicated parking spot which would be very appreciated during a Summer visit. Check-in and check-out was effortless with keyless entry. Kanab is well located for visiting Zion, Bryce and North Rim of the Grand Canyon plus other less famous but interesting sites."

You can enjoy a tour of the Victorian-style Heritage House which is provided in the mornings and afternoons during the summer months. The house dates back to 1855 and was once home to the town’s school teacher named Bowman. It has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is furnished with artifacts from the 19th century.

The Sixtus Johnson House is a single-story 1891 brick house. The original resident’s claim to fame is that his grandfather discovered Zion Canyon in 1858. The Lewis Jepson Home was known to be only one of two homes that had a bathtub. Its owner, Jepson, built the first movie picture theater in Kanab. Today, it is a local restaurant. The Bowman & Co. building was built in 1892 and is one of the oldest standing buildings in town. It was built by Bowman & Co. who at the time owned the town’s general store.
