About Leslee

Welcome to our slice of paradise. We currently live in the Pacific Northwest, with our cat Scout. We feel blessed to have such a special place, and we are pleased to be able to share its magic with you.

Why Leslee chose Kanab

We have backpacked and hiked throughout the southwest, and love this location for its rich scenary, numerous recreational opportunities and abundant sunshine. The simplicity of this house allows it to fit within the landscape without competing with it. We return from visits to this house renewed and touched by this beautiful country and wish that for each of you as well.

What makes this house unique

The property is close enough to Kanab to allow easy dining and shopping, but far enough outside the City to provide privacy and quiet. You very well may find yourself torn between the desire to relax in the chairs outside enjoying the peaceful setting, the draw of nearby spectacular national and state parks, or a visit with the wonderful people and furry beneficiaries at Best Friends Animal Society.

Refreshing, relaxing, Zen-like location and house

  • 5 of 5
We are a little late (its long past Feb 2014) but we just rented this house again for the second time (for 2015) so thought we'd best get our review in! We are coming back and we can't wait!! We called this house our "Zen" house whenever we spoke about it to family and friends. The fresh colors, the simplicity, the design...all of it spoke to us telling us to clear the clutter from hearts, minds, and life. We enjoyed a month of hiking right out the back door and on the close BLM lands, plus visiting Bryce, Zion, Coral Sands, Powell, etc. The area was spectacular in every direction. We appreciated the Best Friends discount and each of us volunteered there which was highly rewarding. We loved playing racketball in Kanab every day at a fairly quaint fitness center. It was charming! We met wonderful people who are into dinosaurs, the environment, animal rescue, etc. Perhaps most of all we appreciated the fact that the furrier members of our family were welcomed - doggie door and huge fenced yard included. We were both also teaching on-line college classes and had absolutely no problems with the internet or phone service; we were able to do our jobs, sip coffee, pet our dogs and look out at the gorgeous scenery all at the same time. Loved the real feeling of privacy of this house. And the STARS! Obviously we loved the place because here we go again -- heading back!!

Pet friendly retreat

  • 5 of 5
Red cliff retreat was a wonderful sanctuary for our trip to Best Friends (and the owner offers a discount for Best Friends Animal Sanctuary volunteers, which we were) and then to Bryce Canyon and the north rim of the Grand Canyon. The house has everything you could need, including a fenced yard for any hitch hiking or Best Friends sleepover pets, a doggy door in the laundry room, and lots of dry creek beds for doggy walking adventures. If you need a second bed, there is a comfortable air bed that fits in the living room area. A million stars at night, wonderful sage fragrances wafting on the breeze.

Thank you very much for your hospitality!

My family (husband, myself, two kids ages 11 & 9) really enjoyed our stay at your house in Kanab. Seriously, why stay at a hotel when for the same price (or likely even less) you can have an entire house? The one bedroom fit our needs: Our son said the couch was the most comfortable bed, our daughter found the queen sized air mattress to be very comfortable and my husband and I slept well in the bedroom.

Admittedly I was concerned about renting a place in July with no air conditioning. But your description was correct: Open the windows, turn on the ceiling fans and the temperature cools down quickly at night. And if the AC had been running with the windows closed, I likely never would have heard the coyote pups howling from a far distance in the middle of the night. How neat!

It was great to have a full bathroom and kitchen to use. We packed lunches for our day trip to Bryce Canyon and enjoyed eating dinner in at the end of the day.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Kanab, I encourage you to consider this option.

Wonderful in May!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were in the Zen House for 7 nights/days. The house and property was everything we dreamed - serene, peaceful, warm/cozy. We hiked in several locations (Zion, Big Water) hung out with friends at The Doghouse Tavern in town, made dinners together, watched a movie and had a fabulous time. Thank you for providing us with a great retreat to rejuvenate! We're sure to be back!

Only the sound of the wind...

  • 5 of 5
Having rented homes across the US and around the world, we greatly appreciate an owner who takes an active interest in the property. The location is perfect for exploring Zion and Bryce. It is just outside Kanab where you can get groceries or eat at restaurant. But, far enough out to have the serenity you are looking for. Everything accurate as described in the property description. We particularly liked the WiFi at the house which uses a wireless WAN through Verizon's 4G/LTE. It was speedy enough for us to stream a few movies on Netflix. And, as far as the dull kitchen knives we have encountered in the past I award the Red Rock, "the sharpest knife award". I don't think you can go wrong with this property.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Wow. I don't think the pictures of this place do it any justice to the beauty once you're standing in it. What an amazing house and an amazing week spent there. The house itself, being passive solar, is so unique and inviting. You can't help but instantly feel at home. Fully equipped with everything you'd need to feel like you're on a vacation but still in the comforts of your own house. We can't wait to go back. And we will. As active volunteers at Best Friends we spent most of our days at the sanctuary but came home to the relaxing red rock retreat to do exactly that, relax. The dogs had a wonderful time enjoying the spacious back yard and watching the jack rabbits. A beautiful view from every angle of this house. A must stay for anyone traveling through Kanab.

Owner's Response: Sara: thank you so much for taking the time to post a review, and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We are in Kanab at the moment, basking in the sun and feeling the tension from our jobs recede as the quiet, the beauty, and the dimensions of the cliffs and the wide open west place our issues into perspective. There definitely is a special feeling you get in this house, and we are glad that until we retire, others are able to share the experience. Please do come back! Leslee and Dave

Notes:
We love the desert climate (warm days & cool nights) and the passive solar engineering in this house. In summer, we and most of our guests find that opening the many windows at night, using the ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room, and closing the windows and blinds during the day during the hottest months keeps the house comfortable. However, some people prefer air conditioning, which this house does not have, so please plan accordingly. Also note that due to rural setting, cell coverage varies by carrier....we now have a Verizon booster that provides excellent reception for Verizon customers and that may work with other carriers as well.
