Because of the pleasant weather and the wide range of recreational activity found here, visitors often return and become permanent residents of our community. In addition to the many National Park and recreational options nearby, guests can hike trails right from their private porch ranging from flat to rolling and heart pumping, challenging climbs to the red rocked cliffs.
We are intensely committed to our environment and our planet and we recycle as much as possible (paper, glass, metal and plastic) and generate most of our energy via solar electric and thermal on-site. If you are interested in seeing any of the equipment, just ask and we are happy to demonstrate the systems.
The shared patio has seating for 6 and a propane fire pit which is available for your use weather permitting.
The private patio has its own wood burning fire pit that can be used whenever open fire restrictions are not in place. Please inquiry before using.

About Larry Erdman
Having grown up in New Orleans, I've lived most of my life in Texas before moving to Kanab to volunteer and then work for Best Friends Animal Society. I am a strong animal advocate, vegetarian and quiet individual.
Larry Erdman purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Larry Erdman chose Kanab
We built our home and the Casita to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings while allowing for easy access to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, several national parks (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon) and recreational areas (Lake Powell, Bryan Head Resort).
What makes this Cottage unique
From the casita porch, guests can hike directly onto secluded BLM property, find Anasazi Indian artifacts, petroglyphs, wildlife and beautiful, expansive views.

Great Location and property.
My wife and I stayed at the "Casita" for five nights and it was perfect for two. The Casita was clean, and nicely decorated, along with all necessary amenities. The location was centrally located with respect to Grand Staircase Escalante, Zion, Lake Powell and several other locations for hiking or other recreational activities. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.
Thanks for a great stay!
Purrfect little casita with everything you could ever need. The neighbors are very quiet too🐈. Very conveniently located for visiting Best Friends and surrounding Parks.
Loved the Casita at Purradise
Thank you Larry for sharing your beautiful home! I enjoyed my stay in the Casita, it had everything I needed and more. I loved the location backing up to the beautiful cliffs. Vladimir and Jarvis, my BF sleepover guests enjoyed their hikes right out the front door.
My husband and I traveled to explore the national parks and wow, what a great location. Our Casita was very private and was central to everything we wanted to do. Larry was great! He gave us a warm welcome and provided us with many useful travel tips for our stay. The Casita was clean, and had all of the comforts of home. We can't wait to go back, and have recommended this property to all of our friends who are planning a similar trip. Thank you for a great vacation, we really enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful little casita. Perfect spot for visiting many canyons and Best Friends. Larry is great!
Immaculate!! Casita is well maintained and provides all the essentials. A comfortable bed at the end of a busy day is a must and you won't be disappointed. And having a washer/dryer is fantastic, especially after volunteering at Best Friends!
I can't say enough about the owner, Larry. When the key lock box wouldn't open, I had to call him. Without hesitation he said he be there in a few minutes even though he was at a function. Larry was quick to attend to a couple of very minor issues and immediately did what was needed. He could not have been more accommodating. I look forward to visiting Kanab again and hope that I'll be able to stay The Casita at Purradise!
Just right for Two
We stayed here for a week during our cross country trek to see the Southwest. The casita was just right for the two of us and a great place to come home to after visiting Bryce, Zion and the North Rim. Kanab had their annual Cowboy Round up while we were there... Real cowboys, vintage stage coaches in the parade and actual cowboys on horseback guiding a herd of longhorns right down main street to start the festivities. This is a Private setting with accurate pictures. Scenery right out the back door was beautiful while relaxing on the patio. Owner on site, but not intrusive. Washer dryer a plus.
The Casita at Purradise is located on 5 acres of beautiful high desert pinyon pine and brush, adjacent to BLM land in beautiful Vermillion Cliff Estates 5 miles east of Kanab.
