About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Well suited for family events, this one level, 2300 square foot home has a wonderful great room/ kitchen/ patio/ backyard arrangement that handles large families well. Three bedrooms at the quiet end of the house complement the kitchen and video game office at the socializing end of the house, for good sound separation. A separate formal dining/ living room area is set up to extend the dinner table to seat large groups. The roomy kitchen with the 5X7 island makes meal preparation part of the socializing.

Three full baths, a 110 gal. water heater, and new appliances make for trouble free living. Lots of off street parking includes space for a large RV or boat, or toy trailers.

Three blocks from downtown Kanab, eight blocks to the exceptional city park complex which has a park and picnic area, ball diamonds, tennis courts, and a new city pool with lazy river.

Kanab is central to several national recreation areas, Lake Powell, and St. George. Truly something for everyone!

Keywords: One level home, no stairs. Two blocks from Downtown Tourist area. Patio with grill. Kitchen/ Great Room Combination.

My favorite VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves this home so much that we rented it again! This is the perfect home for a group, big livin areas to socialize, plenty of bedrooms & bathrooms. We like that it’s in town so it’s walking distance to things around town & walking distance to many trails for hiking. We especially enjoyed the coffee/tea bar that was fully stocked with all the fixings. This home has all the amenities of Home which is very nice. The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes you need to cook/bake, lots of extra linens, & some exercise equipment. I’ve stayed in many homes in Kanab as I’ve volunteered at best Friends Animal Sanctuary for a decade & this is the only one that I have rented more than once, not because some of the other ones weren’t nice but because this one feels like Home.

Lovely rental that is also a lived-in home

  • 4 of 5

This rental is a lovely, neat home that is definitely well supplied. It is also very clearly a regularly occupied home. Upon arriving there were three vehicles parked on the side of the home. Upon entering, we could see clearly the difference between this rental and others from previous Homeaway/VRBO experiences. Bedroom closets were filled with clothes, hats, etc., and bathrooms held owners' belongings. The kitchen was well supplied and also held owner supplies. Although it was a comfortable enough experience for us, we were extremely disconcerted. It would be helpful to know when a rental is being owner-occupied while also being rented out on occasion.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest response. I appreciate hearing our guests concerns so it can be a pleasant stay. I have stayed in 4 VRBO homes in the past and each of them was an owner occupied home, with either possessions and or foodstuffs in the home. I feel that is is a given when a home is listed thru HomeAway and Vacation Rental By Owner this indicates that the home is lived in when guests are not in the home. We also indicate that it is a primary home in the owner history. We strive to have a clean, orderly, equipped home with storage for our guests in the closets, dressers, and bathrooms. The driveway and the parking strip are empty for our guests when they arrive and during their stay. Sincerely, Susan

Awesome stay filled with fun, joy and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Susan and Howard's house the labor day weekend of 2017 !. House is very comfortable, it has everything that a tourist would need to enjoy the vacation. Right location safe and secure, proximity to both Zion and Bryce canyon, we covered both places by staying here. Will recommend the place to anyone who would like a good vacation to a calm, peace and small town and yet closer to prime vacation spot. Thank you Susan and Howard for arranging and equipping the house for a good vacation !!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this house very much. It's spacious and has plenty of room for everyone. The owners have stocked it with everything you could need. The beds are comfortable. Having 3 bathrooms is a plus. In addition to all of our other activities, we sat on the back patio and enjoyed the shade of the trees for many hours. We give this house two thumbs up!

Huge disappointment - Never Book Again

  • 1 of 5

Initial booking and contact from homeowner was very good. Arriving at home and settling in was horrible for all of us staying in home. After flying in halfway across the country and driving from Las Vegas. We find every bedroom closet jam packed with owners personal belongings. Wife and I had master bedroom and even the dresser was full of homeowners personal belongings. We could not unpack as we had no where to put our clothing. One of the other bedrooms dresser was same and the third had no dresser. All closets were jam packed. Our friends lived out of suitcases. I had to move owners belongings so we could unpack. Texted and called owners. Refrigerator had expired food in it as well. One of the pantries in the kitchen was full of paints chemicals etc, "in the kitchen". If you need a child proof home this is not the one to rent. Had cockroaches in 2 bathrooms and the kitchen.Homeowners knew we were not happy and upset with settling in. They knew we were all tired and very disappointed. We were offered the choice of leaving the next day with a full refund. Not a great option when Kanab is in full season and you need to find 3 hotel rooms. Received security deposit in less than 24 hours, appreciated that.

Owner's Response: This is my sixth year doing VRBO. Of the reviews I have received the average for 43 who actually send reviews is 4.8 out of five stars although not every guest has sent a review. And I have had many repeat guests over the seasons. So should I rebut or let it be? Not sure. Only on the 'cockroach' comment. The insect is called a Summer Beetle and seems to be prevalent in the high desert. And they do fly into the house and promptly die. When I sent the Security Deposit I thanked the guest for his insight and assured him I would address his issues. Which I have as evidenced by lack of negative reviews from guests who stayed after he did. But sometimes everyone has a bad experience.

Beautiful well-appointed house

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful house and probably had the best stocked kitchen I've experienced in the many VRBOs I've stayed in. The only downfall was the lack of a fenced yard. Other than that, the beds were very comfortable, everything was very clean, the house is accessible to everything in town, and the owners were very communicative and great to work with. I loved having the huge kitchen to cook in! Thank you!

Hiking available at Squaw Peak Trail at the end of Hamblin Park one mile from the house, also K Mountain is half mile east of the house and is a nice short climb to see the entire valley, Movie Town Museum and The Old Barn show history video and first run movies made in Kanab during it's Movie Making Hey Days....quite entertaining. Western Legends Roundup of Movie and Cowboy history occurs usually at the end of August. Moqui Caves and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary make for a great visit.
