Overview

About the property

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kanab is super central and we highly recommend it! The bed in the master bedroom finally helped me get amazing nights of sleep!

Perfect spot with a fully-equipped house that was super!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Of course, who could beat this fabulous setting? Two of our young adult children climbed up to the American flag at the top of the cliff behind the house. The WIFI and Chromecast were terrific. There were plenty of towels and supplies like toilet paper and paper towels. The master bathroom was especially nice. For our family of five this was just perfect and there were several additional mattresses plus a futon that we did not need to use. The owner even had a few laundry detergent pods plus dryer sheets which helped make this a true "home base" in the middle of a long vacation. We took day trips to Zion, Bryce and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon plus a short 2-hour visit to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab. It all worked out beautifully. We would recommend that if you really want to go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon you NOT try to get to and from this house in one day. It would be over seven hours of driving. In our opinions, the North Rim was awesome. The temperatures in August were very comfortable plus the crowds were sparse. We wished we had time to use the bikes. Taking a walk in the neighborhood was incredibly scenic. Thanks so much to the owners for a great experience!

Stay in Kanab to visit Bryce, Zion and Kanab

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of 7, 4 adults and 3 kids. We loved the layout of the house with its many bedrooms and the Jacuzzi in the master bedroom. It had just the right amount of bathrooms too for our needs. Stacy Lawson, owner, was awesome to do business with which made our stay most enjoyable. We enjoyed the nearby Coral Pink Sand Dunes park and our ride to Bryce and Zion was so reasonable in length, making this location just right. The sunsets and sunrises were gorgeous to view from the deck. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay in a beautiful home in Kanab, Utah who desires short distances to Bryce and Zion. Thank you!

Great choice

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO was a wonderful choice. The home was perfect with many updates and renovations. We used the home as a point return each day as we toured the area. Day trips to National parks were easy drives.Kanab town had everything we needed, groceries and area treasures. The home has wifi and direct TV. The updated deck provided quiet evening and beautiful views. Parking my car in the garage was a treat, who gets that on vacation, again many positives to this stay. Stacy was quickly available by phone messages when we needed her. Our trip to southern Utah was great thanks to this home we returned to each evening.

Location

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
