Great Place to Start Day Trips
We stayed at this nice Craftsman style house for 10 days with our two dogs. It was a great "jumping off place" for our day trips to the North Rim, Zion, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Brian Head, Lee's Ferry/Vermillion Cliffs, and of course, Best Friends (we went there 3 times). The location is easy walking distance to the main part of town with shops and restaurants. We especially loved the Rocking V, which had fantastic vegetarian fare. The house had a great loft with a wonderful skylight that allowed for star-gazing from the comfortable king-sized bed. The modernized bathroom downstairs is very nice, and the steam shower is truly awesome. The house is a little dark, and could use a table lamp or two in the living room. Though there was adequate cooking equipment in the kitchen, some of it is in poor condition (example: there was a teflon fry pan with damaged finish, and the handle was about to come off). We were grateful for the fenced back yard for the dogs, but it could use some attention. There was trash in the back area and in the fire pit, and loose screws and staples on the ground by the fence that divided the yard which could injure dogs (I think we picked up most of them). After we had been there almost a week, we found damp laundry in the washer and dryer in the basement, obviously from the prior visit; we re-washed it all and left it folded. Overall, it was a great place to stay and the few small problems would be easily fixed. The house itself was clean, comfortable and convenient, and we were very happy to find a dog-friendly rental. We were a bit disappointed, however, that the local dog park is only available to local homeowners, and the local city park does not allow dogs at all, not even on leash! Seems like an unfriendly atmosphere for a place so close to Best Friends. Anyway, with these few caveats, we would recommend the house to friends and family.
Owner's Response: We very much appreciate the feedback given and thank you very much for staying with us. We are always looking for ways to improve our properties and we want to deliver the very best experience for vacation homes in Kanab.
You're right about some of our kitchenware needing improvement, so we've gone shopping for the best! We've just added a new cuisinart non-stick pan set, a JA Henckel's knife set, OXO spatulas and lots of new little extras we hope our guests will love (including large bath sheets for the shower).
Wet laundry left in the washer and backyard debris is unacceptable and we will make sure our cleaning team has taken care of this before guests arrive in the future.
Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you again soon.
