Short version, I loved staying here!
I recently spent 2 weeks driving around Utah, camping all over. The night before headed back to the Las Vegas airport, I decided to stay somewhere nice. Somewhere I could just sit, not have to set up a tent, have a real bed, maybe even take a shower. All of that happened, and I loved every second. A perfect way to end the trip!
She also has an outdoor kitchen available, you're close to a bunch of amazing scenery, and as a host couldn't be nicer! All around, I'm excited to get back out there!

Pretty spacious and decorative inside.With plenty of books to take a look at...A nice and clean outhouse system...Your home for the night!

Casita Tara is great! It is very quiet, clean, cozy, and fun. Our Katherine is super friendly! Since the weather was not that good during our stay (rain and snow), she gave us tips and offered a lot of help. She also gave us fresh eggs each morning for breakfast. We definitely had a wonderful time! Highly recommended!

Had an amazing time. Quiet and serene, beautiful views, inviting space. Host is an exceptional person with a warm welcoming presents.
Make note if you're traveling during the summer months this is in the desert and it does get very hot during the day

This was a very cute stay! Definitely loved casita tara. It is really close to Zion & Bryce Canyon NP, which is a plus. The outdoor shower is amazing. The views are too. I would definitely go back. The directions were great. The host was very understanding and sweet!

Kak was a wonderful host, and her land is so pretty!!! Lovely view, lovely space she built with love for her guests- it's clear she built this originally for her friends, you can feel the love. The view is beautiful and feels safe! Her directions were spot on and made it super easy to get there, do make sure to arrive before dark as she suggests, and park at the base.

A short drive to one entrance of Zion, which you drive through to get to the welcome center. We had such an amazing time! thank you Kak for having us and for sharing your beautiful and and energy with us!

It’s very minimalistic and simple living. Beautiful location. Very close to zion national park. We did not attempt the shower but the bed was comfy. The outdoor kitchen seems to be well stocked with utensils. There’s no electricity and no potable water. It was a nice opportunity to disconnect.

Katherine was utterly delightful, interesting, and hospitable. The Casita was enchanting with the most incredible views day and night! We had a great time cooking in the outdoor kitchen, showering under the juniper, and having the hummingbirds join me on the 'throne' was quite an hilarious experience.
Thank you Katherine!
