Kanab House Rental Photos and Description

Large 3-5 Bedroom, 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 Bathroom One Story Home On 5 Private Acres

Located conveniently within the Grand Circle of Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon National Parks, this home is just 2 miles from downtown in the exclusive Ranchos subdivision. Our family friendly home is situated on 5 private acres, with expansive views of the red rock Vermilion Cliffs and the town of Kanab. You and your family will experience an open and inviting floor plan, with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths that can expand to 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths for an extended family. The main portion of the home includes: a large master suite with a king size bed and attached bathroom with a large tub and separate shower - a second bedroom with a queen size bed - and a third bedroom with two twin beds.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to prepare and serve home cooked meals. Enjoy the beautiful vistas while relaxing on the covered deck. There is plenty of parking with a three car garage available, and two fenced in areas ready for sleepover dogs from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

The home can be expanded to include an in-law suite that consists of a living/dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms (each with a queen size bed), a living area with an air mattress (as needed), and a full bathroom. This unit can be rented for an additional fee ($50/night).

About Jody Amacher

Our intense love for animals brought us to Best Friends to volunteer and to see first hand what a very special place it is. Trained as wildlife biologists, we have always shared a passion for the environment. After our first trip to Southwestern Utah, we realized that this is where we were destined to retire to. Growing up in the Midwest, we met in the upper peninsula of Michigan while attending graduate school. From there, we spent 20 years in Maine building our equine, canine, and feline family! We currently live in South Carolina with our horses, donkeys, dogs, cat, and three very exuberant parrots!

Jody Amacher purchased this house in 2012

Why Jody Amacher chose Kanab

We were immediately drawn to this home because of its relaxed, open feeling, and the serene beauty of the surrounding cliffs and trees. We knew that it would be a perfect future setting for our equine family.

What makes this house unique

What more could one ask for than to have the opportunity to enjoy the area's natural beauty and to explore the rugged Vermilion Cliffs from your backyard, and yet be minutes from Kanab's charming downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spacious Get-away

  • 5 of 5

The house was so beautiful. It would be a great space for a family or a large group of friends. We had enough people that we rented the mother-in-law area & used both kitchens. Thank you!

Great family property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is very nice and had everything we needed. There was plenty of space for everyone and it was nice to be able to all be together in one place. The property is in a great location if you are looking to escape city noises. Very quiet and peaceful.

Wonderful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

There were seven of us staying in this lovely home, including 4 children under 13. We had everything we needed, including plenty of space for everyone. Home is clean and well stocked with all kitchen appliances, etc. There was plenty of room for all of us to eat at the dining room table each evening and play some fun games that were also made available to us. I would highly recommend this home. We were close to the town of Kanab and also to Best Friends where we were volunteering.

Family friendly home in a family setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in January 2015. We could not have asked for a better setting. It's a great place to cook and have meals. It's wonderful for reconnecting to one another. This is a great home for families and other groups. We appreciated the owners allowing dogs to stay over and having all the resources for the dog. We definitely plan to return here next January! The discount for volunteering at Best Friends was icing on an already delicious cake!

Kanab Komfort

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and again we were not disappointed. This time we had more people in our party so we utilized the in-law quarters. It is just as fabulous and comfortable as the main house. Every night we had a doggie guest from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The owners of this house are gracious enough to allow this. They all loved the house too and it gave them a much needed respite from sanctuary life. We'll be back in May.

Owner's Response: Thank you again for choosing to stay at our home again while volunteering at Best Friends. We are very appreciative of the time you gave to the animals there and for making a very special night for a few of the sanctuary dogs! Hope to be able to accommodate you again on your return trip back to Kanab.

Next best thing to having a home in Kanab

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this spacious house with a large deck and green lawn. The house was very clean and well maintained. A couple of the nightlights needed new bulbs but other than that everything was functional. We appreciated the large enclosed garage and enjoyed the basketball hoop in the driveway. We especially appreciated the properly inflated basketball provided for our use. During our stay we ventured out to Toroweap for an incomparable view of the Colorado River. We also ventured out to Wire Pass and hiked into Buckskin Gulch. Kanab made a great home base for our exploration of the area.
