Recent Kanab reviews

  • Perfect base for exploring and relaxing

    "Enjoyed 4 nights at the Casita and already plotting my return back. Kanab is a great town centrally located to all the sights and parks, and the Casita is perfectly situated within Kanab: a 5 minute drive to the main streets, stores, and restaurants, but set just far back enough for quiet and privacy. It's cozy, but equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. And waking up to those views, or watching the stars at night, wow! I didn't travel with pets, but they are very accommodating to those who are. Highly recommended!"

  • Kanab

    "It was the perfect location for visiting the parks and just "hanging out" which we did one day. Nancy also left some delicious fudge which was an extra treat. We did have a wonderful visit."

  • Bright spot on a rough vacation...

    "It was pretty much the vacation from Hell. First full day of our vaction (before we came to Kanab) my husband broke his ankle. Last full day, my daughter and I both got a nasty stomach bug. Thank goodness for having a really comfortable place to call home during our time in Kanab. The house was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of space. The kitchen was well appointed with just about every kind of applicance you could want, including a really good blender (margaritas, anyone?). I was a little worried about the "swamp cooler" type air conditioner, but the house actually stayed as cool as we could possibly want it, even on 100-degree days. Being able to do laundry easily was such a nice change from staying in a hotel. Especially given the whole "stomach bug" thing (enough said). As far as Kanab goes, we keep getting drawn back to that area. Maybe we'll retire there some day! Maybe Lynn and Dianne will consider selling in another 20 years or so! ;) Such a great little town and with so much to do within an easy drive. And I think it maybe be the most breath-taking scenery I have ever seen, and I've done a fair amount of traveling. So, Kanab and Muriel's Place are a great combination, even on a vacation where it seems like everything is going wrong."

  • Dream house & location in Kanab

    "My husband & I travel once a year to a different US location. This year we traveled through the southwest & were fortunate to stay at this location in Kanab. The house was immaculate along with the exterior. The location has the feel of being in the country but it is close to town (groceries, restaurants, etc) We were fortunate to meet the owner, Carla & her puppy & horses. From Kanab, we traveled easily to the North Rim Grand Canyon, Zion NP, Bryce NP & the Hoover Dam! This is definitely a home we would return to. We were shocked at how inexpensive the property was to stay at. We have used VRBO for years & this property should be priced at no lower than 175 - 200 a day. Beautiful property & excellent location"
