Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Kanab - The Water Wheel House

3 Bedroom Home + Convertible Bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Water Wheel House is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood within walking distance to downtown Kanab. With 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a great fenced yard on a corner lot, this really is a great place to stay.

Enjoy the stunning views in all directions. Take advantage of the indoor or outdoor swimming pool, and hot tub at the clubhouse. Walking distance from the house, you will find trails into Tom's Canyon for a short easy hike or, for the more adventures, a network or world class trails for hiking or trail running.

The house accommodates up to 6 people in spacious rooms with comfortable beds. The master suite is located on the opposite side of the house from the other two bedrooms for privacy. The master bath is pure luxury with double sinks, a garden tub, a walk in shower and a walk in closet. The master bedroom has a king size bed and comes equipped with a 32 inch LCD TV. The french doors give access to the covered patio and yard and a stunning view of red rock. In the guest bedrooms you will find a queen size bed and two twin sized beds. A separate full bathroom is provided for the two guest bedrooms. The living room boasts a 36 inch TV and there is cable TV service in both living room and bedroom. The house is also equipped with internet service.

The large covered patio offers great views of the surrounding red rock while protecting you from the sun or rain. The yard is completely fenced off with a 5 foot tall fence to protect children and pets. Bring your own pets, or if you are volunteering at the famous Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, have your sleepovers enjoy the large fenced yard or take them for a walk to the nearby dog park.

Why Colin Geddes chose Utah

Kanab is classic western town, bursting with history, cultural resources and magnificent landscapes. This property is right in the middle of it all. A short walk to town or a hike into the canyon are just outside the front door. Close to many National Parks and Monuments, State Parks and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, it is the perfect Base Camp for all your adventures.

What makes this house unique

The La Estancia development is a newer upscale community in Kanab set beautifully beneath the red Vermilion Cliffs. With a wonderful community indoor and outdoor pool, hot tub and clubhouse, you can relax after your day's adventures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed a week in the house and loved every minute. We are family of 4 and found the house to be quite comfortable and pleasurable. It's clean, spacious, attractive. Appliances, fixtures and furniture are all in great shape. Grill was clean and worked fine. Beds are comfortable. Fans and AC were working great. Overall, this is a great house that our family enjoyed returning to after long days on the trails. We did not use the pools, however, because we got home too late each day, but that was our fault. The location is what really made this house extra special for us. You are close enough to Zion, Bryce and the Northern Rim of the Grand Canyon. It's the perfect hub as Kanab is a nice town. We were lucky to catch the annual Western Festival coming through. The house is also about 7 minutes away from Best Friends Annual Sanctuary, a very special place that the home owner told me about. I would definitely come back to Southern Utah and stay in this home again. My only suggestion - please get ESPN so my son and I can watch baseball after a long day of hiking! Kidding. Thanks Tana for a great place to spend our vacation.

Spacious, like Kenab

Great house-- spacious with high ceilings, clean, very comfortable, well laid out, set up for our dog and has everything you need during your stay. Quiet neighborhood, great view of the red rocks and we'll definitely be back.

Outstanding view of canyon and facility was clean and roomy

  • 5 of 5

A group of four seniors found this facility to be more than adequate for our needs. The central location to the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Bryce and Zion added to the experience for all of us. The view from the back porch area was outstanding and helped all of us to focus on the wonders of the area. Being "flatlanders" we always woke in amazement as to where we were. Red Rock Canyon has it own beauty to it.

The house, itself, was roomy and had everything that we needed to make ourselves at home. Nothing was left out of the preparation for our visit. The availability of the garage added to our feeling of security in the area.

A very appropriate and nice property if anyone is visiting the canyon area of Utah. The ease of making the reservation through VRBO was appreciated very much.

Our thanks to the owner for making this property available on VRBO so that we could avail ourselves of the opportunity.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We've had mixed results in renting vacation homes in the past (using a different website), but really hit the jackpot on this one! The house and the development it's located in are quite new and beautiful. Although the house was bigger than we needed, the rental fee was quite reasonable, and we really enjoyed the spaciousness of the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. It was certainly accurate in the website description (even nicer than we expected), and we would definitely consider coming back with family or friends. We were sent great instructions at least a week before arriving and there were detailed instructions when we arrived. There were also loads of books and brochures about all the Kanab, Zion and Bryce activities that are available to enjoy.

The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, including essential spices for cooking, loads of utensils, paper plates, etc. The master king bed was extremely comfortable and all the linens (bed and bathrooms) were ample and in great condition.

The patio was fabulous in the mornings and evenings (out of the summer afternoon sun), and the views from the backyard are great! The gas grill is connected to the house gas line and made it a breeze to grill every evening!

We have two dogs and always bring our own coverings for couches, chairs and beds, but found those items in the house as well. The extra-large kennel was perfect to house both of our dogs (a beagle and Yorkshire terrier) and made us feel more comfortable than leaving them outside while we were gone.

The property is within walking distance of several restaurants (the Parry Lodge is an old Hollywood haunt from years gone by) and shops, and our morning jaunts were quite enjoyable. This house is a great bargain that we would definitely recommend!

Within driving distance of Bryce, Zion, and the Grand Canyon - beautiful and equipped home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in Kanab! The well-equipped home was comfortable and inviting, with a terrific view of the Utah landscape. We were within driving distance of Bryce National Park, Zion National Park, and the Grand Canyon - enjoying the 100th year anniversary of the national park system. The local sand dunes were stunning and a nice addition to our itinerary. At the end of a long day we all chipped in to prepare dinner and gathered on the patio to eat. Then, we were off for an evening swim at the clubhouse pool. The clubhouse jacuzzi was just what was needed to loosen the muscles so we were prepared for the next day's excursion. Lovely town, I only wish we had realized the local Movie Theatre had Westerns playing on Monday night; we watched one of the Lone Ranger television shows online - a must since it was filmed in this quiet neighborhood back in the day.

The home have everything and more!! Very clean, well organized and plenty of supplies for a week long stay. This home had lots of information about places to go and things to see. It was a great location for visiting the National Parks. The owner of the home was quick to reply and easy to communicate with.

Thanks for making our vacation to the National Parks amazing!!
