About Cari Graham
We are a couple close to retirement that loves to travel, loves the heat and loves Southern Utah. We have four grown and out of the house daughters and 3 granddaughters... Todd would be the only boy if it weren't for the wonderful son-in-laws that have came into our lives. Even our cat LuLu is a girl ;)
Cari Graham purchased this House in 2010
Why Cari Graham chose Central
When we looked for homes in Southern Utah my husband insisted the realtor take us to see this home in Central even though it was a bit off the beaten path. There was something about it he loved. When we walked through the front door we KNEW we wanted this home. It is simply finished NICE! As you walk in there is something about the cool colors and style of the home that makes you want to stay. We love it!
What makes this House unique
Our home is away from the city life and set in the country town of central. We hear the faint sound of horses, owl & other wild life, the occasional bunny, squirrels and deer wondering through our yard and the beautiful view that lets you know you're away from home and here to relax. Honestly one of my favorite things to do is take a walk through our up & down hilly neighborhood. You pass the occasional 4-wheeler and the small town waving neighbor!

This was a fabulous stay for my family!
The house itself, the owners, the property, the views from all windows, the quiet surroundings, the wildlife outside the kitchen window, the proximity to hiking trails, and all the beautiful scenery -- this is one of the best trips my family has taken and this rental property was the icing on the cake.
Right away, the owners showed great interest in our happiness with our stay in their home. You can see from how they try to accommodate the guests that stay here. One thing that sticks out in my mind is the bottles of moisturizer by each sink in the house. At first, I thought it was a little odd, but very quickly I realized this was an incredibly thoughtful gesture. We're from Florida and are used to humidity. So while we do use moisturizer, it's not such a necessity as it is in the dry Utah environment. Our skin almost immediately began to dry out and itch, and our usual moisturizer just wasn't making the cut. We used some from the bottles left by the owners, and it made such a huge difference.
We had only one minor issue and that was with the wifi not working at the end of our stay. We're pretty sure it's because of the massive wind from a storm that was coming through the area. The owners were quick to respond to texts and help fix the issue with hardly any time without wifi. When you're so far away from town, the data service on your phone doesn't work very well, so wifi was desperately needed.
We didn't get down into the garage to enjoy the game room, but it looks like a nice setup. The balcony running along one side of the upper floor made for some lovely mornings drinking coffee and watching the sun light up the valley. The road leading to the house and the driveway are very steep -- first going up, the second going down -- but once you get used to it and learn how to navigate it, it's not so bad.
Overall, it was a fantastic stay at a lovely house with wonderful owners, and if we're ever in this area again, this house will most definitely be on our list to stay in if it's available. Thank you, Cari and Todd!
Oh my gosh. Thank you for such a nice review! We appreciate the time you took to write this. We also appreciate how well you took care of the place and what great renters you are! You vacation in Utah... we vacation in Florida lol. Can’t wait to have you back!
Thank you so much!
Beautiful home close to snow canyon. We enjoyed our stay while visiting family in St George. Thank you!
Kristen, Thank you so much! Hope you received your Fitbit in the mail!
Come back anytime!
This was my second visit to this property, and it was just as good as the first. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Close enough to St. George to get all you need but with a sense of escape with a spectacular view. The house has plenty of space, is well laid out and well appointed. Owners are very responsive. It is a great retreat.
Thank you so much for the review! We appreciate the time it took and appreciate your stays so much! Terrific renter!!! Recommended to all!
Hope to have you again!
The property was clean, cozy and comforting. Felt like home
Amazing great time with family and the house entertainment with Foosball table and air hockey.
Thank you so much for the review! You were wonderful guests and we hope to have you back!
Great cabin with wonderful views!
We spent three nights at the Hillside Hangout with our group of 8. We had three generations ages 67 to 15. We played games, watched movies, went on a few RZR rides, ate pie from Veyo Pies, and just had a wonderful time. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed and Cari answered any questions we had very quickly.
Thank you so much! You were wonderful guests! Would love to have you back anytime!!
Hope to Hangout Again at Hillside Hangout
My family had a wonderful time in Central, Utah. The home was impressive, clean, and well maintained. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrise from the deck each morning we were there. There are so many things to do in and around the area. Our favorites were Snow Canyon and Mt. Zion. There was no way to see and do everything in the eight days we were there. There are several great restaurants in St. George, but nothing was more appreciated than Veyo Pies just a few minutes from the home. I think we had four homemade pies in the eight days we stayed! I had several questions before arriving in Central and I found Cari to be very friendly and helpful. I knew immediately our trip was important to her and she was extremely considerate and available to my family in every way. I would love to return to the area someday and would absolutely choose to stay in this lovely home again!
Denise, Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It was fun communicating with you! You were terrific renters, the best! You're great review and the time it took are so appreciated! Hope you can make it again!
Located 25 minutes north of Saint George on scenic highway 18 with all the fun and entertainment of downtown Saint George just minutes away! We are just north of the BEAUTIFUL outdoor Tuacahn Ampitheatre and Snow Canyon! The Tuacahn hosts a variety of amateur & Broadway productions, concerts, comedy, rodeos and other shows starting as early as March. In 2015 you will see: Chris Proctor-Mar 9, Abamania-Mar 20, The Bretts-Mar 21, Pink Floyd-Mar. 27, Professional Bull Riders-April 10-11, Brian Reagan April 30-May 2 and the following Broadway Productions held outdoors from May – Oct, Beauty & the Beast, Disney’s When You Wish and Sister Act. You cannot find a more inviting setting. You may not know the Tuacahn hosts an OUTDOOR MARKET every Saturday morning from 9-12 with breakfast available, art shows, gift shops etc. Snow Canyon State Park offers camping, hiking, cycling and a lot more. Some amazing views, slot canyons, Lava Tubes, photography ops! It's tempting to stay in your car because it's beautiful. We advise GETTING OUT OF YOUR CAR!! Take a short half mile walk or a longer hike. You'll be GLAD you took our advice! One of our favorite places is just 69 miles away about an hour and a half, is ZIONS National Park! It makes a great day trip from our cabin. I'm sure I need to say much about Zion's! If you haven't seen it you must. Google it. If you have been... GO BACK! They have the coolest buses now that take you around the park and you can get on and off as desired to take in the view, a hike, food or ice cream! Just a few miles before you get to our home is the town of Veyo. Veyo has gas, post office, some groceries, Mr Cebollin's Mexican food, Veyo Pies (serves lunch) and a little hidden gem, The Veyo Resort & Swimming Pool which has been there since 1930! When you head down the resort road you are driving down closer to the river. Get out and walk down to this charming resort! It includes a restaurant, open until 8pm every night, a swimming pool, camping and picnicking areas along the river, volley ball, horse shoes, crawdading and ROCK CLIMBING, also lessons. It is one of the largest privately owned outdoor CLIMBING PARKS in the USA. Climbing opens April 1st. Pool opens May 1st. Pool and restaurant from 12-8pm 7 days a week. If you've heard of the CUTE town of Pine Valley... We are 8 miles from it BUT CLOSER TO SAINT GEORGE! Pine Valley has one of the coolest camp areas I've seen and they've recently added many new camp sites. They have a stocked lake to fish, spots for horses and lots of 4-wheeling and hiking trails. Besides the smaller fishing lakes like Pine Valley and Bakers Dam, there are lakes big enough for boating nearby such as Gunlock, Quail Cove Reservoir and State Park, Sand Hollow and if you are up for a two hour drive for the day you can head out to LAKE MEAD, the largest man-made lake in the US. If you like to go four wheeling, there are 4-wheeling trails EVERYWHERE around us. Some of them drop down right into our subdivision. Take one easily over to Baker’s damn. Our home is a few blocks away from the start of the Saint George Marathon! If you're running in the marathon our home is the perfect place to stay. Did you know Saint George has an outdoor free movie every other Friday night in the summer? https://www.tuacahn.org www.zioncanyon.com/ http://www.veyopool.com/ http://stateparks.utah.gov/park/gunlock-state-park http://www.utah.com/stateparks/quail_creek.htm http://www.utah.com/stateparks/sand_hollow.htm http://www.nps.gov/lake/index.htm
