Overview

Kanab House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Stewart's point, located right outside of center of Kanab, has awesome views-mesa views at the front of the house, and backyard view of the Red rock cliffs. Kanab is 80 miles from the north Rim of the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon national parks. It is 40 miles from Zion National Park.

The property has a 160 sq foot deck off the master bedroom with stairs into the backyard patio (see below). This has views of the Powell abutment of the grand canyon and the entire valley of Kanab.

Along with great views, SP now has great wifi! South Central Communications is building a fiber optic network, and in February 2016 i was lucky enough to be among the first houses to get it. I have the largest bandwith, 1Gig, and it is speedy! Because the wifi is now legit, the house has a google chromecast in the living room for streaming content (netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, etc.) and music streaming via a Jambox.

This is a large bi-level house, over 2,500 sq feet. The property is 1.9 acres, with over an acre between the neighbors on both sides. Very quiet. Because of its location, you can likely see deer at dawn and dusk, and local bunnies abound. I have great pictures of deer on the driveway 10 feet from the house - unfortunately not high enough pixels for the site, but will happily email anyone who wants to see them. They look like they are ready to walk in the front door ! :)

Now that the basicsarecovered, here is some more information on the house:

1) On the top floor - a spacious Master in excess of 600 square feet, with a King Bed , DirectTV and a separate Conversation area with a pull out leather futon.

Attached to the master is a completely new master bath with a spacious shower, dual sinks and a brand new Jacuzzi jet sunken tub which overlooks southern Utah. There is also plenty of room to set up the portable crib / air mattress(es) in the master suite.

The top level also includes a large dining room/living room, with a 55" plasma TV, Chromecast, DirectTV with DVR. This room has large picture windows with canyon and mesa views. A kitchen with breakfast counter and bar stools adjoin the dining room. There is a second full bath on the top level.

The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, etc., and has a reasonable supply of basics (sugar flour, oil, spices, etc.) After 5 years as a vacation rental, i am fairly confident i have everything you might want - from place mats to a coffee maker and coffee supplies, to a high chair for the smallest eaters.

From the top level you can walk two steps down to the fenced backyard and patio with BBQ.

2) Downstairs: There are two bedrooms and a third full bath.

Downstairs bedroom number 1 : This room has cedar paneling and contains a queen bed and sleeper sofa and also has a TV/DirectV/DVD player. (see 'downstairs bedroom number 1' photos)

There is a second bedroom , with another queen bed, which includes a laundry area . The laundry room is enclosed by floor to ceiling curtains to provide a roomier and cozier feel to the space., and there is a privacy screen between the two bedrooms to provide privacy between the rooms. (see 'downstairs bedroom number 2' photos)

Please note: The two bed rooms do adjoin - you enter and leave the downstairs bedroom #1 through bedroom number 2. .

I have recently acquired two new adult beach cruiser type bikes and two helmets you are welcome to use.

To me, good night's rest is a high priority while on vacation. All mattresses are high quality and NEW - pillow top Serta Mattresses. All of the towels and linens are high quality.

About stacy lawson

I came to Kanab over 15 years ago on a western state road trip to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and see Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. It was in August and nearly every hotel was booked,. Despite the crowds, my friends and I fell in love with the town's charm and the incredible natural beauty of the town and the surrounding parks. We cut our time short in Las Vegas to stay longer and really get to know the area.

stacy lawson purchased this house in 2005

Why stacy lawson chose Utah

I have a house in Kanab because, over the years, i have continued to come back again and again to enjoy the scenery and solitude and i fell in love with the views from this house. I also saw the (fun?challenge?) in remodelling and updating its (original)1985 decor.

What makes this house unique

The property abuts a large rock cliff and has views of the mesas and the powell abutement of the grand canyon. The house is less than 2 miles from the center of Kanab, so you are close to the highways to the national parks, and close to the restaurants and amenities in town. It is 7 miles from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

The house was clean and provided all essentials for a 4 day stay. The sofa bed was inadequate for sleeping purposes and the twin size air mattress had a slow leak. We observed multiple cracks throughout the house and were concerned about the safety of the house. As we paid a cleaning fee we thought asking your guest to strip the sheets, sweep the kitchen floor and taking the trash out to the street were a little too much. Communication with the owner was good.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! Very comfortable, clean, well-furnished, excellent beds. I love the art -- especially the pig painting. We didn't bring our dogs, but the house is well-equipped and very dog-friendly. We used this house as a base to explore the north rim of the Grand Canyon, which is about an hour's drive away. It was nice to have bikes available to use. We enjoyed watching a spectacular lightning storm through the huge picture windows in the living room. We would definitely rent this home again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your comfy home with us. We just completed our third trip to your property. The location is just perfect when touring both Bryce and Zion National Parks. We cooked each night and relaxed after long days of hiking. We also rented ATVs and toured the Pink Coral Sand Dunes with our teenagers. Thanks again for providing this home away from home!

Best Vacation Home in Kanab UT

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stewarts Point House in Kanab UT June 2016 and had a wonderful time.

Stacy, the property owner, truly cares that her guests have a great stay at her house. She will go above and beyond to assure her guests have everything they need. the house is renovated/remodelled and the 2 floor levels work well for large family gatherings. 1 family downstairs another upstairs. the master bed & bath are huge and the Jacuzzi tub is a plus. the house also hase a garage, laundry room and 2 patios. We especially like the location of the house on the edge of town with magnificent views of town yet just a few minutes drive to anywhere. Kanab it self is a great little town, safe and with everything close by including several major landmarks.

If we are planning another vacation in this area we will definitely stay again.

What a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

What a great home in the foothills of Kanab with a wonderful view of the valley and mountains. We saw a couple of beautiful sunsets and I saw a awesome sunrise along with a cottontail in the front yard. We arrived to a spacious, clean and well supplied home for two days of exploring Zion and Bryce N. P. It was great that we had such a awesome place to come home to after all the walking. If you need a place to stay in the Kanab area, I would very highly recommend this property. Definitely a 5 star.

Map

Car: necessary

Approved for best friends animal sanctuary dog sleepovers. The property is 53 air miles from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon - from the property, you can see the Powell abutement of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. This is a great place for photography enthusiasts. I also have had several geologists and amature rock collectors visit the property.

For mountain biking enthusiasts, the kanab creek trail is a very near to the house and is a great ride. The information about local trails for bikers is included in the house
