About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

At this time I'm living in my home for a while, so I don't have rental dates available. What a concept! However, sometimes I take a week's vacation, and I look for VERY responsible, dog loving people to take care of my hounds, and stay at my home for a reduced rate.

At my home, you'll look out the sliding glass door onto roses, wildflowers, and mature fruit trees, all against the backdrop of the magnificent vermilion cliffs. With no houses behind you, only sagebrush and junipers rolling down to the creek, there's serenity and peace every minute of every day. Unless the resident road runner makes an appearance to glare at you, for he thinks he owns the place. Sit on the backyard deck, and just soak in the sun and surroundings.

These fenced two and a half acres were once home to the Anasazi Indians, and when you walk around the property, you'll find pottery shards from long ago. These acres are now the home to Greyhound Gang - a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of greyhounds. Do visit our web site - Greyhound Gang - to learn more about what we do and why we do it. And if you're in Kanab in May, we host a huge fundraising event with hundreds of hounds and humans called Greyhound Gathering - Kanab. Come pet some hounds!

Inside my home, you'll find the warmth and welcome of a home designed for comfort for you and your pet. Your main living area features far views of the cliffs, east and west. Near views are of bunnies and birds, who expect you to leave seed out for their pleasure. If you do find yourself indoors, there are two comfy couches, one overstuffed chair, a chaise lounge, a flat screen TV with Dish Network in the main living area. Bring your computer as there is a free wireless connection.

Two lovingly furnished bedrooms, with comfort in mind, are off the main area. There are two bathrooms, each has tub and shower, with towel warmers as an extra special indulgence.

If you are bringing well behaved, housebroken dogs with you, their creature comforts will be more than well met. Many friends have commented they want to come back in the next lifetime as one of my hounds. There is a dog door to the deck, which has a ramp for older and smaller dogs. Sharing the furniture is allowed, if covers (which I provide) are used. The back yard, which is accessed through the dog door, or sliding glass door, has 1.25 acres fenced. The front yard has a separate 1.25 fenced acres.

Kanab is centrally located to many natural wonders. Zion, Grand Canyon North Rim and Bryce National Parks and Lake Powell are less than 1.5 hours away. Coral Pink Sand Dunes and other state and national treasures are also close by. Incredible hikes are minutes away - The Wave and more. And of course, Best Friends Animal Society is 15 minutes away and is the premier no-kill animal society in the world. It's not to be missed.

This is my personal home, a 3 minute drive from the quaint town of Kanab. When I'm traveling, I open my home to others knowing they will fall in love with Kanab and the surrounding area, while enjoying all the comforts of home.

Specials - the longer you stay, the less you pay. Since this is my private home, I do ask for a personal phone conversation before booking. Call me - 435-644-2903. We'll talk.

If you've got questions about Kanab, call or email me. I'm happy to help you enjoy Kanab as much as I do. Even if you don't rent my home. :)

About Claudia Presto

I was a Type A, East Coast Corporate kind of gal, who didn't want my tombstone to read - She was the best employee xxx ever had. So I chucked it all, including my Karmann Ghia convertible, and bought a Chevy Silverado pickup, hauling a camper trailer, and headed West. I stopped in Kanab, and 19 years...I'm still here. Home to me and Greyhound Gang.

Best place on Earth.

Claudia Presto purchased this house in 2005

Why Claudia Presto chose Kanab

This is my personal home. Economic times have determined finding creative ways to pay the mortgage. So that's why you get to stay in a beautiful home for less than a hotel's rates.

What makes this house unique

Towel warmers in each bathroom.

Memory foam topper on beds.

Unobstructed view of vermilion cliffs from every window.

Resident rabbits, quail, road runner.

Three, fenced acres, with dog door and deck for happy dogs.

Private home, so fully appointed as such.

Beautiful place to stay in Kanab

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a month. The place is nicely stocked, and very roomy, huge yard, all fenced in. Both the inside and outside are very pet friendly, and your dogs will be super comfortable. Very quiet, and relaxing place to stay. Beautiful views outside, relatively short ride to Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon North Rim, and Anetelope Canyons in Page. I definitely recommend staying here.

Great Home to Stay in While Visiting Kanab, UT

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Claudia's home for four nights in May 2013. She was extremely helpful and very accommodating. We brought our fur baby Sadie Rose with us and she had a wonderful time. We volunteered at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and it was only about a 15 minute drive from Claudia's home. Claudia is awesome and we were very grateful for her hospitality. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful first visit of many to Kanab, UT.

FANTASTIC Home! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing experience staying in Claudia's home. I am writing this review several months late, but I wanted to be sure to let everyone know that this is a top notch rental home.

Our family spent a total of a month in Kanab volunteering at Best Friends, and we spent two of those weeks in this home. Her home is beautifully decorated and very well kept. Staying here allowed us to experience what it would be like to actually live in Kanab. The best part is that Claudia rescues greyhounds... My kind of person!!

We had our two beloved rescue dogs with us, and they loved the home as much as we did. Our two kids loved this house, too. We all had great fun exploring the huge fenced backyard, with the breathtaking view of the nearby mountains.

Claudia was easy to work with, and her home was comfortable and lovely. Highly, highly recommend.

"Perfect" is the right word

  • 5 of 5

Truly a perfect house for my dogs and me! I traveled with four dogs this trip, and they loved the yard, the open floor plan, and all the toys! :) Of course, I enjoyed the house as well! Everything was as good as expected or even better. The house was very clean, well maintained, and very well appointed. We had everything we needed, and I very much appreciate the trust placed in me and my dogs in allowing us to stay there. Thank you so much, Claudia! Great talking with you and working with you! Hope to be back again--my family would like to join me next time! :)

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We walked in the door and immediately relaxed! We loved this place and all it provided! Our dogs were amazed by all the backyard adventures they could experience!

This house is in a perfect location for volunteering at Best Friends, very convenient but remote enough for some peace and quiet.

Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your lovely home!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying here with our dogs at Claudia's beautiful property. The house is wonderful and has everything you could possibly need, and the pups were in 7th heaven exploring the huge yard and sunning on the deck. I highly recommend staying here if you have the chance and I hope I'm able to return!
