Fun & Happy
Fun & Happy
This by far is the funnest, best decorated, happiest Airbnb we have ever stayed in. We were there for 6 days and everyday we found something new." ~ Shirley, August 2020
We Are Speechless
"My family of four and my little dog stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Zion, Bryce and Page Arizona. We are all speechless; I have stayed in over 20 Airbnbs while traveling around the Pacific NorthWest the past two years and the Western Star blew them all away. We would move in if we had the chance; Sherene and John have put so much work and love into their home it is beyond impressive."
~ Emily
THE BEST Airbnb Experience
"Don’t hesitate! Just book it. You won’t regret it. Sherene and John’s hospitality game is top-notch. Having traveled extensively staying in Airbnbs in 4 different continents, I can tell you this is one of the best experiences as a guest I’ve ever had."

About Us

When we married 37 years ago John told me “We may never be rich, but I promise you we will never be bored!”. That was an understatement. Once in a while, I confess, I just want to be a little bored. Life is always an adventure in our family. Recreating this home has been no exception.

John loves to travel and got me hooked. So even though we are both native Utahns, we try and see some part of the world every chance we get.

John also loves to create stuff. An artist at heart! So building The Western Star Bungalow and The Star Garage has been a combination of loves. Attempting to see travel through your eyes as we have created the Bungalow and the Garage, has been almost as fun as going somewhere new ourselves.

If you have a hankerin’ to talk about old cars or Rat Fink, give John a call. If you’d rather talk about creating costumes or quilts, Sherene is your gal. We both enjoy ATV riding, backcountry hiking, and old movies.

We have 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren. Life is good!
We are excited to have you come and share some of the great sites that Southern Utah has to offer.

Review From An Independent Travel Blogger

6 Stars, 5 Stars Not Enough
Sherene’s place is so wonderful. It is the best we ever stayed with Airbnb. The house is so beautiful with first class decoration. Sherene has taught about every details. I gave Sherene and her place 6 stars. Five is really not enough.”
