Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms / One King and one Queen, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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!!

About Gay and Chuck Porter

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.

Gay and Chuck Porter purchased this house in 2010

Why Gay and Chuck Porter chose Utah

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

Amazing wrap around deck for any time of the day

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, with amazing views all day long. The kitchen is well stocked and the grill is like new. The furniture is comfortable. The location is great as it's easy access to Zion NP and Grand Canyon NP, plus there are tons of outdoor activities nearby.

Outstanding Vacation Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a beautiful home. My family and I rented this home to visit all the nearby National Parks and could not have been more thrilled with this rental. It was close to all needed ammenities, nice restaurants, nice views and most importantly-- close to National Parks (Bryce, North Rim Grand Canyon and Zion). Lake Powell was a bonus to recreate at, we had a blast swimming and snorkeling there. The house was so clean and such a pleasure to return to after each daily adventure, great communication from owners and appreciated the tasty welcome gift!

Thanks so much for making our vacation rememberable for years to come!!!

wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. It delivers everything that is advertised and more. Very peaceful and beautiful setting. Gary was very helpful and flexible in scheduling our visit. Our reservations at the GC North Rim were iffy due to a water main repair. Gary was able to accommodate us accordingly. Will definitely stay here next time we come through!

We stayed here for a trip to Zion. We could have stayed much longer. The house was very comfortable and the views were wonderful. The kitchen was spacious and easy to navigate. The whole house was wonderful. It was a grear place to return to after being out exploring all day. It was exactly like the description, but better when you're there! The location was perfect for seeing southern Utah. We will keep great memories of our trip there. WE WOULD DEFINITELY STAY THERE AGAIN! 😎?

Perfect stay at a dream home!

  • 5 of 5

This was someone's dream home and it shows! It is well planned with a nice kitchen and beds that are comfortable. The area is quiet and restful and there are amazing views! The house is centrally located making it easy to visit nearby Zion, Bryce, and the Grand Staircase. You could also take a trip to the North Rim of the Gramd Canyon; however, it was not open yet when we went the end of April. It opens like the second week of May...but we have a an excuse to come back then. The owners were delightful to work with, and even e mailed us to check in and see if everything was okay. It was more than just okay. MIT was all wonderful. We hope to come back again. Thank you for sharing your dream home!

Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful! The views are amazing, every room is clean, spacious, and comfortable. We stayed with friends with a kid. There was even a small playground within walking distance for her to play in. From this location, we were able to visit the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyon. It was perfect for our trip! We would highly recommend it to anyone.
