Aloha and Welcome to our Kanab home!
Gaze out at the 180 degree view of red cliffs and plateaus stretching for miles to the northern rim of the Grand Canyon, breathe deeply and get ready to RELAX! Enjoy the view from the rocking chairs or benches on the wraparound deck, or in the living room with its 6 large paned windows, or through the French doors in the dining room, or the bay window in the kitchen breakfast nook. This is a home with rockin' views!
The living room is newly furnished in Southwest style with warm, bright colors and handcrafted barn wood end tables and custom cedar coffee table. Brand new flat screen TV, cd/stereo with ipod dock, and dvd player, a small collection of dvds, and board games will keep you entertained.
A dining room with French doors and deck access seats 6 and a warm, inviting, sunlight-filled, spacious country kitchen makes it a pleasure to cook. A laundry room with new washer and dryer are adjacent for convenience.
The large master bedroom is newly furnished with a top quality king size bed and Western style dresser, nightstands and chest and includes a large walk in closet and master bathroom.
The roomy 2nd bedroom has a new top quality queen size bed and skylight. The bathroom is directly across the hall.
There is central air conditioning, ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms and central heating during cooler months for your comfort during your stay.
How convenient! Each bedroom has its own private entry from the wraparound deck for easy arrival and departure. The hall bathroom has a walk in shower with handicap accessories for safety.
For the hikers many trailheads are accessible within five minutes of the back door. Bring your bicycle and pedal from the house or take your ATV or Jeep and in five minutes you are on your own. Hog Canyon is just minutes away and Coral Pink Sand Dunes is just over the hill. The Escalante National Monument could keep you busy for years taking a different trail every day. Easy day trips are a favorite by going to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Capital Reef National Park, Lake Powell, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Scenic Highway 12, too numerous to mention Scenic Byways and back roads to fishing lakes, horseback trips or guided canyon tours. Take an overnighter to Moab, Canyonlands and Arches National Park. Rest up for a week after rafting the Grand Canyon with Grand Canyon Expeditions, headquartered in Kanab.
For a small town Kanab has very good restaurants and some include great selections of vegetarian and other healthy menu items. Two well-stocked local grocery stores will keep the pantry full.
For the shoppers, St. George, Utah is a quick and scenic 75 mile adventure drive along the Arizona Strip, Kaibab Plateau and Vermillion Cliffs area.
Something for everyone!!

My husband and I live on the Hamakua Coast on the Island of Hawaii where we are active in the retail tire and property/casualty insurance businesses. We love to travel in the Southwest and have a menagerie of pets: 3 dogs, 3 rescued cats, 1 pet wild boar named Winston, and 3 horses. We look forward to spending more time in Kanab hiking, exploring new off-road trails, and making more friends.
We have vacationed in the Southwest for many years in beautiful places like Sedona, Taos, Santa Fe....but we actually give credit to VRBO website and Dru and Bob Hepler, owners of the Grand Canyon Cabin for our decision to buy a home in Kanab. Long story short, almost a year ago, their TV caught fire in the middle of the night, they credited us with a free night and we've been fast and good friends ever since. Their friendship and others we have met, Kanab's down-to-earth beauty, charm, proximity to national parks and sights, clear blue skies and fresh air...need we say more? We sincerely wish you the best that Kanab offers and that you truly enjoy your stay!
We can't say enough about the views from our home. Most days are blue sky and sunny with cool evenings. Kanab is so central to one of the most beautiful areas in North America that every day offers a new adventure.
