Condition of property

We do everything we can to make sure the Western Star and its property are prepared and ready for your best vacation ever.  However, unexpected things do happen. We promise to do our very best to rectify any problems as quickly as possible. Please do let us know if any problems arise.

    1. The Legals – The Property will have been inspected prior to occupation and therefore The Guest undertakes to: • Notify The Owner immediately with regard to any damage and/or maintenance issues that require attention. • Keep the Property and all furniture, fixtures, fittings, and effects in or about the Property in the same state of repair and condition as found at the commencement of the Rental. • The Guest shall follow the departure instructions provided by The Owner.
    1. System Failure: In case of failure of a system or amenity during your stay, including but not limited to, water, sewer, heating, air-conditioning, electrical, mechanical, ventilating, structural systems, major appliances, or WIFI and entertainment equipment, We shall promptly repair them. You agree to permit access to the House to make repairs. We shall not be liable to You in damages, and NO REBATE OR REFUND will be given for such temporary failure, provided We are repairing the system or amenity in a reasonable manner after having received notice from you that repairs are needed, however, there are limited service contractors in The Kanab area.
  1. AMENITIES OFFERED: Equipment and facilities are provided at the discretion of The Owner and whilst every attempt is made to ensure that such equipment is in working order for the duration of the rental period, should a breakdown or some other situation occur that renders non-essential element unusable, the Owner does not take responsibility for replacing or refunding The Guest for the lack of use of these equipment or facilities. The equipment and facilities referred to include (but are not exclusive to) such items as televisions, VCRs/DVDs, small kitchen appliances etc.

UPON YOUR CHECK OUT –  Additional cleaning if needed, (including smell neutralizing, think twice you curry, garlic and fish cooks)  will be charged at cost, $20 per hr.

Late Check outs will be charged at $20 per hr (sorry, learned that one the hard way….).


✓Nope. None. Zilch. No smoking inside, on the porch or in the yard.

  1. The Legals – New Kanab City regulations designate “No smoking outside anywhere within 30 ft of adjacent property”.

Be a good neighbor

We have great neighbors over the back fence. (Shan and Gib go to bed early!) Please be considerate of them and they will be gracious and helpful.

And you may or may not have another visiting guest neighbor right next door in the adjacent house.

Kanab has had a little push back from a couple of disgruntled neighbors lately. Please keep us one of the “Good Guys”!

I understand we may have neighbors right next door in the adjacent house. We promise to be kind and considerate. (Just like a good Boy Scout.) Park in the left hand side of the driveway and strictly adhere to Kanab City Quiet hours listed below.

  1. The Legals – Guests should not create excessive noise at a level that disturbs neighbors; Code-enforced neighborhood quiet hours are from 10:00p.m. –  7:00a.m. Kanab City public nuisance laws are strictly enforced by Kanab City police. (Includes unhappy, noisy pets)


Up to two pets are permitted, Just let me know upfront so we can prepare. I would love to know your pets names ______________________________________________________________

  1. The Legals – On approval of a pet, you will receive a separate Pet Addendum. All evidence of pet occupation must be removed from the Property and grounds at the end of the rental period. Pets are not permitted on any item of furniture, including beds, and evidence of pet hair on furniture and bedding may incur additional cleaning charges


100% refund for cancellations made at least 60 days before check-in.

50% refund for cancellations made 59 to 31 days before check-in.

No refunds for cancellations made within 30 days of check-in.

If we can rent out your cancelled time, we will still refund you any of the revenue recaptured minus a 15% re-booking fee.

No refund 14 days and under. No refunds or chargebacks during or after your stay.

Guest must initiate the cancellation if booked on AirBnB or VRBO.

NOTE:  Things happen! We strongly recommend shopping for separate Travelers Insurance, we offer some thru a third party -Travel Guard. Always a good idea in case of any emergency or cancellations.

Damages and extra fees

In the unlikely event there is damage or extra fees (late check out, extra people, extra cleaning ect.) to the property, we will invoice prior to charging the credit card of the lead guest who made the booking- (signature below).  Or charges may be deducted from VRBO/Airbnb damage deposits. Charges will be made only for reasonable replacements or repairs.
Also – You may want to consider separate Travelers Insurance, always a good idea incase of any emergency or cancellations.
