Beautiful Southwestern home
We really enjoyed our stay at the Southwestern. Right in town. All the amenities we needed. Such a lovely place. The other people I stayed with kept telling me I did a good job booking this one. We go to Kanab every year to volunteer at Best Friends. I am sure we will be booking the place again.
Best Friends Visit
Great location. Home included everything we needed. Really nice to have a washer and dryer. Beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were modern and clean and the kitchen included most staples although we did not cook. Outdoor area was nice but too hot in the evening to enjoy. Really liked relaxing on the front porch drinking coffee in the mornings. Only negative would be that the house could benefit from a deep cleaning.
Comfortable home centrally located near the center of Kanab. Easy walk to town. The sofa in the living room is tired, needs to be replaced. Suggest that you leave a supply of paper goods (paper towels and toilet paper) for future renters. No dishwashing detergent either. Small items but necessary details. Overall, satisfied with the rental.
Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to review The Southwest. All of your feedback is appreciated and will be passed on to the owner.
We are looking to do some updates and refurbishments this winter so your suggestion are very helpful.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay not only at the cottage but in our quaint little town.
Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we hope to see you again!
A good rental property
Property served our needs well. A good location, good beds and a/c.
House was clean and only one block from downtown and a coffee shop.
Hallway shower was a little difficult to use. Hard to regulate the temperature.
Washer and dryer were 'newer' but located in the basement with a steep staircase and minimal lighting. Could be dangerous,
Otherwise, a good rental in a great location.
Thank you for your review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us.
We will soon be in the process of updating the shower so it's not so difficult to use but we appreciate all the feed back in regards to the shower and the location of the washer/dryer.
With upcoming renovations we are taking all feedback to the owner to ensure we can address all suggestion made by our guest.
We truly appreciate you choosing to stay with us and we hope to see you again!
Great vacation property!
We spent 4 nights in Kanab at the cottage. It was a good fit for our family. We had 7 of us and had plenty of room to spread out. Everyone loved the front porch in the afternoon for a gathering spot, and we had the fire pit and the back patio for evening grilling and chilling. The kitchen was roomy (though a bit dark) and well supplied. Plenty of seating for all inside and out. Laundry is available in the basement.
The house is so central to the sights. We did a day at Zion (45 minutes), day at Bryce (1 1/2 hours), and Lake Powell/Lower Antelope Canyon (about 1 1/2 hours). The Grand Canyon is about an hour or more south, but it was closed when we were there. We were able to walk everywhere in town for breakfast or dinner, the food store is close by for supplies.
We did have a few gripes. The shower, while newly renovated and modern, was either running out of hot water or the water was too hot and couldn't be turned down. Seemed a little out of place in an old house, but it was nice when it worked for the lucky ones who got the hot water.
Upstairs ceiling is low, so tall people beware. Nice apartment type arrangement up there with private bath and living room separate from the rest of the house. We did blow the circuit breaker turning on a stand-up lamp at the top of the stairs.
The back patio and yard were great, but we felt like it hadn't been tended in a while. We had to sweep up a lot of dirt and leaves before we hung out there, and there was a hole dug in the at the edge of the patio which hadn't been filled in yet. There seemed to be outdoor speakers and party lights, but we never did figure out how to get any of those working.
Those were minor items overall as the overall experience was great - everyone had a wonderful time and loved hanging out at the house. Highly recommend it for a group or family vacation!
We appreciate you taking the time to review The Southwest Cottage and are are happy to hear you and your family not only enjoyed the house but got the opportunity to see so many of the amazing sites located here in Southern Utah.
All feedback, weather good or bad, helps us deal with the issues to ensure that future guest have a pleasant stay. Or allows us the opportunity to add more amenities to ensure an amazing stay with The Canyons Collection.
I am sorry to hear the check in process was not as smooth as expected and I have since refreshed with the front desk staff the check procedures.
We appreciate all of your comments and suggestions and they have been forwarded onto the owner.
We hope to see you and your family again one day!!
Good, not great
The house was clean and a good space for a group to stay. The location was easy to find and the house has great character and charm. Love the backyard patio and fire pit! Few issues that need to be addressed. The dishwasher didn't work well and dishes in the cupboard weren't clean so we had to wash prior to using them. Lighting was dim in the kitchen area. Biggest complaint is that the hot water was gone after only 2 people in our group had taken quick showers (we had 6 in our group). If these things were fixed would stay there again.
