Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Kanab - The Casita at Purradise

Private bedroom, full kitchen, fireplace, W/D, living room with sleeper sofa.

The Casita features a complete and stocked kitchen with full sized refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave and granite counter tops. The living room has a gas fireplace, sleeper sofa and flat screen TV with satellite service and DVD player. The bathroom features a full sized tub/shower with granite counter top vanity. A heated rack provides toasty warm towels as you step out of the shower. All shower and bath products (soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer) are included. A private bedroom has a full sized bed, closet and on-suite washer/dryer. There is free high-speed Wifi internet available. Safety features include a private entrance, fire/smoke/CO detectors and a commercial grade sprinkler system.

We are just minutes from a grand array of state and national parks, national monuments, national forests and many diverse wilderness areas. Because of the pleasant weather and the wide range of recreational activity found here, visitors often return and become permanent residents of our community. In addition to the many National Park and recreational options nearby, guests can hike trails right from their private porch ranging from flat to rolling and heart pumping, challenging climbs to the red rocked cliffs.

We are intensely committed to our environment and our planet and we recycle as much as possible (paper, glass, metal and plastic) and generate most of our energy via solar electric and thermal on-site. If you are interested in seeing any of the equipment, just ask and we are happy to demonstrate the systems.

The shared patio has seating for 6 and a propane fire pit which is available for your use weather permitting.

The private patio has its own wood burning fire pit that can be used whenever open fire restrictions are not in place. Please inquiry before using.

Please note that the entire Casita and property are strictly non-smoking.

About Larry Erdman

Having grown up in New Orleans, I've lived most of my life in Texas before moving to Kanab to volunteer and then work for Best Friends Animal Society.

I am a strong animal advocate, vegetarian and quiet individual.

Larry Erdman purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Larry Erdman chose Utah

We built our home and the Casita to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings while allowing for easy access to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, several national parks (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon) and recreational areas (Lake Powell, Bryan Head Resort).

What makes this cottage unique

From the casita porch, guests can hike directly onto secluded BLM property, find Anasazi Indian artifacts, petroglyphs, wildlife and beautiful, expansive views.

Purradise it was!

  • 5 of 5

Great little place only 5 minutes from all the restaurants and shops in Kanab! We drove up to this well-maintained property to our own little parking spot. Larry met us himself and gave us a tour of the casita. It was extremely clean and had great features like the fireplace, heated floors, heated towel rack and modern appliances. He really thought of everything. It was very well stocked - full kitchen with plates, cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, etc. and even shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower. We had camped for a couple days before reaching the casita, so it was nice to have a warm place to relax and even do our laundry (soap provided!). We didn't get to use the outdoor fire pit but the set up outside was spectacular too. Thank you Larry for your exceptional hospitality!

Gorgeous place with incredibly hospitable host

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the casita. I forgot my laptop and had to write a paper for school, and Larry set me up an area to use his personal laptop so I could get my work done. The view of the mountains was exquisite and we loved the little cat sanctuary.

Our time here WAS in paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had booked Larry's Casita to use as a launchpad to Zion, North Rim, Lake Powell BUT once we arrived in Kanab... We realized what an amazing location it was in itself and all there was to do right here! From the moment we arrived, Larry was more than helpful! He walked us into the Casita area on his property and explained the casita from AC to heat and then asked about our plans in the area. He then brought out the notebook and went through the best tour group to groceries to Best Friends to restaurants! Even where to buy the best cookies at the North Rim! The casita was such a retreat! Walk out the back door to beautiful red rock butte, a hike on Larry's property, stargazing at night and even a fire pit with wood in it! Inside it is just as the photos show a nice sized living/kitchen area with all the cooking utensils you need to even cook a main meal. TV and wifi were excellent which is not always the case in our Southern Utah travels so far. If you are headed to this beautiful area... Lucky you... And do not hesitate to reserve the Casita at Purradise! You won't regret it! PS We did see a huge jack rabbit each morning out our back door to add to the fun!

Cozy little Casita with everything you need for a quiet peaceful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the Casita at Purradise We spent 5 nights this year. We were in Kanab to volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (you MUST take a tour even if you are not there to volunteer. The place is amazing!) so the fact that Larry works there played a part in our choice. In fact, we scheduled our vacation around the availability of the Casita.There were 3 of us and the Casita was plenty big. We took the bedroom with the comfortable double bed and our daughter slept on the sofa bed, usually with our sleepover dog for the night. Larry does allow sleepover dogs from Best Friends at no additional charge. From the fully stocked kitchen, to the hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner and soap in the shower and a heated towel rack for nice warm towels, the Casita has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. It is well equipped, spotless, and private. The surrounding scenery is gorgeous and the area is quiet and peaceful. The stars are amazing at night. Larry is a wonderful host. He is there if you need him but he does not intrude. He even worried about us when we arrived at Best Friends late one day.The info book has menus from area restaurants but we ate mostly fast food in since we had sleepover dogs who were not approved for patio dining at the restaurants in town. The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook but after a day at Dogtown we were too tired. Also, the price is right. The Casita was cheaper than most of the motels in town that allow sleepover dogs and there was no traffic noise. We will definitely stay with him again next year and recommend him to anyone staying in this area. He also has a new cabin next door that is larger but it was booked for all of October.
