Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Kanab - Kaibab Casita

1 bd, 1 bath Casita with cozy kitchenette, views of Kaibab & Vermillion Cliffs.

A stay at the Kaibab Casita will give you excellent views of the Kaibab Plateau and the Vermillion Cliffs, including the Island in the Sky--a short two hour hike to some incredible, ancient rock art. Located at the heart of a dozen national parks, national forests, national monuments, and state parks, you will have millions of unparalleled adventures to choose from.

The casita is an immaculate one bedroom, one bath property that sleeps four. Brand new furniture and tasteful decorations create a cozy get-a-away. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, stove top, toaster oven, mircowave, blender, and coffee machine. Bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed with a new memory foam mattress. The living room has a cozy gas fireplace and a TV, as well as a couch that pulls out to an additional queen sized bed.

Several outdoor patios surround the native landscape property for dining al fresco. Enjoy the colorful native plants, soulful birds, lazy lizards, friendly rabbits, and chattering chipmunks that frequently visit.

About Megan Smith

We are Latimer and Megan Smith. We both grew up in Southern Utah and have been residents of Kanab since our high school days. Latimer is the assistant manager for a river rafting company and a Grand Canyon river guide, and Megan, a former backcountry ranger, now runs the rental and works part-time for a non-profit education foundation while staying at home to care for our two children, our friendly dog, Blue, and our turtle, John Keats. We live on the property, so if you'd like, feel free to come over and say hello.

Megan Smith purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Megan Smith chose Utah

We bought this property because of the amazing views and the quiet neighborhood. We are an outdoor family, and we love the fact that we can be on a trail within minutes of leaving our home. We think you will enjoy it too. We are close to all the local trails and surrounded by national parks and monuments. Come stay!

What makes this cabin unique

We drawn to this home because of its big views. The front of the house looks out toward the Kaibab Plateau where the Grand Canyon lies below. The back of the house affords a magnificent view of what locals call "The Island in the Sky", a small throne of white sandstone among the dark vermilion cliffs. An hour or so of hiking will get you to the Island, also known as Mansard, where a panel of ancient petroglyphs await.

Perfect place to explore Southern Utah!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Kaibab Casita for two nights. Megan was very responsive and answered all our questions beforehand and her place was very easy to find.

The Casita was very clean with everything we needed. Comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. The casita is separate from their home so you have all the privacy you need but close enough for any questions or concerns you might have.

Megan and her husband know a lot about the Grand Canyon (turns out he's a river guide), Zion, things to do in the area and had great recommendations.

Kanab has the most beautiful red rock cliffs as their backdrop that make you feel like you're getting a real southern Utah experience! Kanab is the perfect home base to explore the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Vermillion Cliffs, Lake Powell, and Bryce Canyon National Park.

We had a great day in Zion and the Casita was a relaxing place to come home to after a long day of hiking.

Highly recommended!!

Beautiful home with very nice owners

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Kanab. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. We found everything we needed. They even offered a good selection of movies to watch.

We have met Megan who was very nice and is a very experienced outdoor expert. Her advice was so helpful when we planned our hike to the "Subway" in Zion.

We have lived in the house for three nights with our two boys (13 and 15 years old) and think that the house is not really suitable for 4 people. The kitchen table only has three chairs and the sofa bed is too short and uncomfortable for a teenager.

Excellent location for Zion, Bryce. Private and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time my wife and I used HomeAway to book accomodations. We had our dog with us. The homeowner was most accomodating. This property is separate from the main house and is minutes from Kanab, Utah. Zion National Park is closest but Bryce is little over an hour away as well.

Best Friends animal rescue is very close.

We had a great time and added an additional night.

Comfort, warmth, and friendliness

  • 5 of 5

My nine-year-old granddaughter and I stayed four nights at the casita while exploring the area and volunteering at Best Friends. It was the perfect haven after long and busy days, offering everything we needed with the bonus of lovely Southwestern art works reflecting the owners' interest in the rivers, rocks, and canyons of the area. The setting is lovely, with red rock cliffs in every direction. True outdoors people with a deep knowledge of the area, Megan and Latimer are an excellent resource on available activities and adventures near Kanab, starting with the brochures and maps made available in the casita. I come to Kanab every few years and hope to stay here each time I make it back.
