About Coyote Casitas , Sally McNeil-Blimling

Purchased the property 13 years ago as a second home. There was a separate

large garage. Recently, we have built a new garage with a large casita behind our

house. This is zoned commercial and will be a short-term rental as it is located

within Kayenta Art Village. My husband is an architect and I have been a real estate

Coyote Casitas , Sally McNeil-Blimling purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Coyote Casitas , Sally McNeil-Blimling chose Kayenta

broker for over 20 years in two other states. This property was so enchanting with the serene desert and red mountains, it appealed to all of our needs for a second home. The Santa Fe design of the houses was also utmost in our decision,having close ties with New Mexico in the past. Since, my son has come to live with us from

back east, it made for a perfect fit. He could manage it while we traveled occasionally . It is a lovely piece of property near national parks and in an almost

exclusive adult community. There is much to do and many cultural events.

A theatre is in the process of construction within the village and walking distance from the casita. The gourmet coffee shop offers delicious food and is also open on the weekends for evening meals. The community has many people from all over the country who have either retired in this area or have a second home. It is because the area offers so many nearby parks, sports events, cultural events and just everyday sightseeing. The mountains of red rock "kayenta" are a view that never grows tiresome and one of enlightenment on a daily basis. Come see for yourself and you will know why we chose this spot. Pictures cannot describe the beauty nor the feeling of serenity.

What makes this cottage unique

Since photos, do not do the area justice, you must SEE this location to believe. As the owner, I feel confident that you will be pleased with our casita.

Guestbook comments from the manager

She was our first guest and was even here during landscaping and other

small construction details. She does not use a computer but told me to post this;

My dog and I (Nelly,the pug) loved it so much that I seriously asked the owners to

purchase from them. Of course, their answer was NO! It was a lovely quiet,

place in Kayenta in Utah which is such a wonderful place that my mother and I

will be returning.

The casita was really great and the weather was grand. I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a quiet getaway or vacation. Southern utah is a wonderful colorful place any time of the year. We look forward to returning.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more happy staying at this amazing guest house. It was located in a artsy community on the outside of St. George. We were greeted by the friendly host, who directed us to the entrance and showed us inside. The place is spacious, well decorated, fully furnished with everything you would need, and very comfortable. We felt right at home! We had a relaxing stay and would highly recommend for anyone to stay at this beautiful home, with a beautiful view of the mountains!!!! Thank you!

Beautiful view. Awesome area for hiking.

  • 5 of 5

The casita was well equipped and located in an awesome location. We had views of the red rocks right out our patio window. The kitchen was well supplied for cooking. A few basic supplies were provided. We had privacy, laundry access and the owners were very friendly and helpful. A few housekeeping items though...the kitchen needs a vegetable peeler, the knives need sharpening and the dishes heat up quite a bit, so be careful handling them out of the microwave. But overall, this was a lovely place to stay and we'd come back again.

pristine and serene!

  • 5 of 5

This location is beyond peaceful. There is no light or noise pollution whatsoever. In fact, the silence is profound. The Coyote Casita is beautiful, clean, and well-appointed. The view from the huge windows in the casita is gorgeous. We woke up every morning to enjoy our coffee on the patio and watch the sun rise over the red cliffs. The casita is right next door to the Xetava restaurant and the art shops and spa. Although the kitchen in the casita is perfect for cooking, we walked to the Xetava daily, because the food is amazing. All locally sourced, organic, unique, and delicious. We enjoyed cycling and hiking both right in the Kayenta community and in Snow Canyon State park, which is only a few miles away. Swimming and yoga are right next door as well. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! Thank you to Sally and Patrick for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. We will be back!!!

Wonderful and comfy space in a beautiful setting in the heart of Kayenta.

  • 5 of 5

My heart and soul were so nourished and restored staying here! The little casita was light and airy, open to the outdoors and with beautiful views of Red Cliffs. Hosts were gracious and made me feel very welcome, I loved walking into the art village for breakfast on the weekend, and touring the galleries, and walking the sculpture garden and labyrinth at twilight. Nature brought me the rabbits and quail for joyful viewing, and hearing a ring of coyotes howling provided for full southwest experience. The night skies are magnificent, the patio a great viewing spot, conveniently situated under the Milky Way! The opportunities for exploration beyond the casita are bountiful and each unique. I enjoyed kayaking and swimming at Gunlock and Quail. Reek Reservoirs. Local hiking loves included Snow Canyon and Red Cliffs, beyond that Zion, Cedar Breaks, Navajo and Mirror Lakes; the Pine Valley Mountains, and the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Worth seeing as well, Coral Dunes State Park and the Toadstools area at Grand Staircase Escalante; and certainly enjoyed hiking at Bryce! Within an easy two hour radius one Is exposed to a kaleidoscope of colors textures and patterns in the landscape that is southern Utah! I also enjoyed a night at Tuacahn and at the Shakespeare Festival, and touring historic downtown St George, finding all the sculptures and historic homes. A little antiquing in Hurricane and my time was done, so much yet to see and do! It was always so nice to go off for the day, and be rewarded with the views and the play of light on the Cliffs driving back into the casita, forever etched in my heart!

Beautiful, scenic and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The casita was clean and quiet. The Owners were kind and helpful. My stay is one I won't soon forget. The location is ideal for the traveler looking for solitude and accommodations off the beaten path. I must say I very much appreciate the Owners and their willingness to open their Casita for stays such as this one.

This locality has much to offer; there will be brochures about

the current activities depending on what date you travel to "coyote

casita." The local coffee shop which is just down the hill; will

also have all the info. The art village which is the location of the

casita has several festivals throughout the year. Spring and fall

seem to be the most popular for events. Check out the St. George, UT events of the year. There are many and are listed on internet.
