About the property

Unique 2 bedroom bungalow in Kanab town, close to National Parks

Welcome to the Western Star Bungalow! Part of My Star Vacation Rentals. The cutest little bungalow in the West. We have created this one of a kind vacation rental home in Kanab (south western Utah), with lots of fun and lots of character. Imagine returning home after a full day of exploring the Grand Canyon, Zions or Bryce, and having a long bubble bath soak in your deep vintage clawfoot tub, or a delicious hot shower in the large triple headed Anasazi Indian ruin shower!

All newly renovated, this home away from home is absolutely sure to please everyone in your party! Two bedrooms with queen beds plus a pull out queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Sleeps 6 total with two full bathrooms.

The two Master suites, unique and very different from each other (as different as - well, as different as cowboys and indians….). Both rooms are equally fabulous - no more drawing straws with your travel companions over the master suite. The perfect solution for couples traveling together. These bedrooms each have delightful decor, en-suite bathrooms and comfortable beds. You will love our quality mattresses, luxury linens and ample choice of pillows.

The darling kitchen opens to a cosy living room and makes a great place to cook, eat and just relax!

Pack light, full laundry facilities, shampoo, conditioner and hair dryers on site.

Kanab and her surrounding areas have so much to offer,

-with five national monuments

-two state parks

-two national forests

-and three national parks

All within 90 minutes. The Golden circle.

But one of our favorite things about Kanab is it’s unique movie making history! At one time more movies were made in Kanab Utah, than anywhere else in the United States outside of California! Wow, that’s a lot of movies and a lot of interesting history for this little town. Pop up some popcorn and spend your evenings relaxing in our cosy living room surrounded by photos of that fun filming history and watch some of our ever growing collection of vintage western movies made right here. Not into old Westerns? No problem. Stream all of your favorites directly through our brand new smart TV. Our new upgraded fiber optic network means no streaming down time! Bring your own passwords for other viewing options with your own accounts. (We do not have direct or Cable TV)

Located within easy walking distance to several restaurants and a grocery store.

Wheelchair friendly by design! One level, no stairs and wide front entry door. We know it can be difficult to find accessible accommodations (especially if you want to bring your pet along). Now you have a choice in Kanab. Our Farmhouse bedroom has a 36” entry door with 52” sliding doors into the bathroom. The zero entry shower makes wheeling in easy, and conveniently placed grab bars are a big help when you need a little balance. Also available if needed are shower stool, toilet lift seat and bed side rail. Please contact me with your needs and how we can help!

I do have a basic short term rental contract that I will email after booking. I also have a fully refundable (7days after departure) $300 security/damage deposit.

Stay 6 nights, get the 7th FREE! YeeHaw!

NOTE: Update Dec 2017 - Please be aware that some landscaping will not be complete until............ But there is still great outdoor patio space! Thanks for understanding.

Now completed - The studio apartment adjacent to The Western Star Bungalow. Look for our Star Garage listing 837117(The second awesome place to stay from My Star Vacation Rentals.)

Man caving at it's finest. Room for two car enthusiasts. The Star Garage is attached to the side of the Western Star Bungalow, but each with it's own space - own parking, own amenities, own outdoor space.

Only two things in common:

1. We love them both!

2. The laundry room. The laundry is shared from an outdoor carport entrance.

We can't wait to show you!!

Cheers, Sherene McClellan

About Sherene McClellan

-Be sure and check out both our listings at the property, The Western Star Bungalow AND The New Star Garage Studio! We are - My Star Vacation Rentals (MyStarVR)

-When we married 34 years ago John told me “We may never be rich, but I promise you we will never be bored!”. That was understatement. Once in awhile, I confess, I just want to be a little bored. Life is always an adventure in our family. Recreating this home has been no exception.

John loves to travel, and got me hooked. So even though we are both native Utahns, we try and see some part of the world every chance we get.

John also loves to create stuff. An artist at heart! So building the Western Star has been a combination of loves. Attempting to see travel through your eyes as we have created the bungalow has been almost as fun as going somewhere new ourselves.

If you have a hankerin’ to talk about old cars or Rat Fink, give John a call. If you’d rather talk about creating costumes or quilts, Sherene is your gal. We both enjoy ATV riding, back country hiking and old movies.

We live in the small town of Mt. Pleasant, four hours North of Kanab. We have always loved this southern part of the state, done lots of backpacking here, and were thrilled when we had the chance to purchase this home in Kanab at the end of 2015.

We have 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren. Life is good!

We are excited to have you come and share some of the great sites that southern Utah has to offer.

We would love to talk to you about your dates and ideas of things to do in our area.

Thanks so much! Sherene

Why Sherene McClellan chose Kanab

We love Kanab and the surrounding areas. So much to see! And the climate is great. Still a change of seasons, but temps. seldom stay as cold as our home in Central Utah.

What makes this bungalow unique

John is a creator and builder! The home is truly unique. It has been so much fun to see the fruition of our imaginations come to reality. We wanted to create the type of place we would like to stay with our good friends when we travel together. The two master suites have each succeeded in becoming a memorable place to be.

Lovely home, with museum-like qualities. One could spend the whole visit just looking at all the Hollywood Western film memorabilia. However, there are a few natural wonders to see in easy driving distance.

Wow! So much amazing detail! Was blown away!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great house!! I loved that it was themed with the subtle "cowboys and Indians" decor and all the amazing movie reference memorabilia! That garage apartment too!!! How amazing! A woman could get anything from her man having him stay there! My husband LOVED it! Stayed for several days while we went to Best Friends. It was so fun to go out for a hike or do some shopping and come back to somewhere that felt like home but a lot more fun!!! John and Sherene you are amazing!!! Keep it up!!!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Western Star was one the nicest, most comfortable, clean and well organized properties that we have stay at on our worldwide travels. The owners were easy to communicate with and take great pride in their property. Every last detail was addressed in the home. The home came with many amenities to start your stay. Really no need to bring or buy anything for a short stay. From the kitchen to the laundry room to the linens and bath towels everything was top of the line. Kanab is small so everything you need is a short drive away.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Western Star. The home is located in the heart of Kanab and was centrally located to everywhere we visited during our stay. The home was just perfect, very cozy, and enjoyed looking at all the Western Hollywood memorabilia throughout the home. We will definitely stay in this house again when we return to Kanab.
