About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

The Most Beautiful Earth On Show! Your very quiet and secluded vacation home on 4 private acres is located in the most beautiful upscale part of Kanab. This Kanab, Utah vacation house is the perfect home for visitors and volunteers at Kanab's Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (only 15 minutes drive), and we welcome well-behaved pets and animal stayovers from Best Friends. The house is equipped with a lockable pet door so your furry friends can enter and exit to the fenced garden at will.

Situated in a canyon on almost four acres of very private land, this Kanab vacation house boasts breathtaking unobstructed views of the surrounding vermilion cliffs and of Kanab itself. The property is wonderful to walk around and explore. It features majestic views that make you feel like you are in your own private national park. However, it is only a couple of minutes from all the amenities of the picturesque and historic 'wild-west' town of Kanab.

This comfortable and extremely well-equipped vacation home is also the ideal base from which to explore and discover over eight of America's most scenic wonders. You will be at the center of some of the best monuments as well as national and state parks in the USA - like Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Lake Powell (Glen Canyon), Kodachrome, Grand Staircase Escalante, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, and Grand Canyon North Rim - all an easy 30 to 90 minute drive.

Far from the crowds, and surrounded by peaceful scenic splendor, you will enjoy returning to this recently renovated, fully-equipped Kanab vacation home from home featuring Satellite TV and a 57"' SAMSUNG 1080i HDTV, wireless broadband (activated on request), and a well-stocked bookcase.

The large king bedroom features a large walk-in closet as well as a newly renovated ensuite bathroom with whirlpool tub.

There are an additional two generous queen bedrooms with a large newly renovated separate bathroom. Two large and comfortable 6 foot long (4-person) couches and an inflatable aerobed are available in the two common living rooms so the house can sleep 6 people very relaxedly (10 max). A full, well-equipped kitchen with all modern conveniences and stocked with many cooking necessities rounds out the perfect Kanab vacation house package.

Our Kanab, Utah vacation house also boasts a new 30 foot by 12 foot deck for very private sunbathing, lounging and entertaining, as well as a smaller patio deck for intimate meals.

The rear of the vacation house has a fenced garden that is safe for pets and kids. We're told by visitors and our Kanab neighbors that our approximately 2000-square foot house, its acreage and views make it possibly the most beautiful property in Kanab. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.

Situated at the center of some of the most awer-inspiring national parks and landscapes in the United States, it is not surprising that Hollywood selected this beautiful area to shoot many famous westerns like John Wayne's 'Stagecoach' and Clint Eastwood's 'Outlaw Josey Wales' as well as TV shows like 'Gunsmoke.' You can still visit the remains of the old movie locations close to Kanab.

Enjoy year-round, mild weather and some of the cleanest, freshest air in the USA. Described as one of the healthiest locations in the nation, this unspoiled nature-lover's paradise enjoys remarkably mild winter weather and glorious summers.

Keywords: Beautiful 2000 sq foot 3 bedroom/2 bathroom vacation house with almost 4 acres in the best part of Kanab, Utah. Comfortable; Safe; Private; Spacious; Quiet; Calm; Restful; Fully-equipped with large interior garage as well as exterior parking area for RV's and trailers etc. Great for a romantic getaway.

About Tony or Christina

We're a professional couple who have traveled extensively around the world.

We believe that travel, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures is what life is about.

Tony or Christina purchased this house in 2006

Why Tony or Christina chose Kanab

While living a stressful life in Los Angeles, we volunteered one freezing Xmas at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We immediately fell in love with Kanab. The Southern Utah region boasts the most beautiful landscapes we have ever seen. We were lucky to acquire what people tell us is some of the best view property in Kanab.

What makes this house unique

The house is fully-equipped and stocked and in top condition as you would have in your own home. Our friends and family stay at this Kanab vacation house. Total quiet, peace, tranquility, well-equipped and comfortable. Your own private acreage to stroll through. Hard to see any neighbors. Unmatched views of the surrounding vermillion cliffs. A perfect place to decompress from the stresses of life.

We are regularly told that our vacation house property in the beautiful Ranchos area has some of the best views in Kanab. There are two private driveways to the house on almost 4 acres. The rear of the vacation house has a safe fenced garden ideal for pets, "The Ranchos" is the most upscale location in Kanab. All neighboring properties also have 3-8 acres, so you will be hundreds of feet from the nearest neighbor. Most of the time you will not see any people or habitations. As you walk through this wonderful Kanab vacation property you will experience the feeling that you are completely alone in the wilderness on your own private estate in the middle of an awe-inspiring National Park. And yet you may be only a few hundred feet from your comfortable vacation home and only a few minutes from all the stores and amenities of Kanab!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

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.

Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located for those who wish to visit all the national parks and monuments in southern Utah and for those who wish to relax by enjoying the views of vermillion cliffs at sunrise and sunset from the comfortable decks. The house was pristine upon arrival, and it had all the features one desires. The owners were flexible, accommodating, and very helpful in every way. The town of Kanab has all the resources one might need tucked into a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. This maybe the ideal vacation home for those wanting adventure and relaxation in one of most awe inspiring places in the country.

Family Vacation Sept. 22-29, 2012

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here with our grown children - 6 adults & 1 grandbaby.

The home is located with beautiful views in all directions and nice walks around the secluded neighborhood. The house was clean and well supplied when we arrived. While it is simply furnished, the house is very comfortable and roomy, and includes the amenities important to travelers. The beds and linens are comfortable, the showers and towels are very nice, and large TV and wireless internet. The kitchen and dining table are ready for a family, and a nice grocery store is just a few min. away.

We came with plans for an active week and we were not disappointed! Our sons flew their mt. bikes along, and found great rides at Gooseberry Mesa, Thunder Mountain near Bryce and several near Zion. We hiked the Narrows and Angels Landing @ Zion, The Navajo Loop @ Bryce and rim trails @

the Grand Canyon North Rim. We rented a power boat for 5hrs @ Lake Powell and had a great time

exploring the beautiful canyons, then had dinner at the marina (Antelope Point). Also, toured the slot canyons and Horseshoe Curve in Page AZ. All of these sights were 45-90 mins. from the house.

We found the whole experience with the owners and the manager to be exceptional.

Our family agrees that this was one of our best vacations!

Nice stay in Kanab!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third visit and each time my friend and I have loved staying here in Kanab. As others have noted the house is extremely clean and well stocked like my own home. The beds are comfortable and the bed and bath linens are in very good condition. I was in Kanab during the annual DOCUTAH Southern Utah International Film Festival in September which is great fun. They had a few films shown in and around Kanab with most being screened in St. George. It is so peaceful and beautiful here and a great escape from a hectic world. Highly recommended. I look forward to returning next year.N

Positively the Best in Kanab!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 had an absolutely great time basing our adventures from this home on the outskirts of Kanab. We were within easy driving distances to several trailheads that we based our "photo safaris" on. The house itself was immaculate, comfortable, and well stocked with the basic necessities. Two great supermarkets, minutes from the front door, made meal planning, even at the last minute in some cases, much, much easier. I can't thank you and the local Property Manager enough for your attention to detail and responsiveness to my emails. There was absolutely nothing wanting on this trip.

We Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week at this house. It is located in the best neighborhood in Kanab where all the homes have 3-8 acres around them. It is so quiet and peaceful that we felt like we were in our own private National Park. It’s hard to believe one is only a couple minutes from the stores and restaurants in town, and only about 15 minutes to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We looked at other properties further out of town, but glad we stayed here as it would be scary driving longer distances to fetch a quart of milk, or finding ones house in the dark of night after dinner at a restaurant. (There is no lighting outside of City Limits.) The master bed suite has direct access to the rear garden, as well as a sizeable walk-in closet. It was the perfect home to return to after a day of sightseeing or volunteering at Best Friends. The fenced back yard is grassy and ideal for pets or stayovers for Best Friends animals. We enjoyed lounging and picnics on the large deck as wells as walking around the grounds. Sometimes one wants some privacy and this property gave us lots of space. The views are spectacular in all directions. We could easily live here all year round. The owners keep the house very well stocked with everything we needed (paper products, toiletries, cooking supplies, laundry supplies etc.) so we really did only need to bring personal items and buy food. They employ a wonderful manager who was very helpful with any local questions we had. We have booked a 4-week return visit!
