About the property

Home with Casita has 3 Bedrooms +3 Baths for LONG TERM RENTAL ONLY.

Wild West Luxury is found at our Kayenta villa nine miles northwest St. George, Utah. We named it Casa de Bella Vista because of the breathtaking red rock cliffs visible from most rooms in the house. Built in late 2008, the home features luxury amenities and furnishings, stone and hardwood floors, 3 gas fireplaces, a private stone-rimmed swimming pool with fire pit and barbecue, Spanish wrought iron entry doors to the main house and the attached private casita. The gourmet kitchen features a Wolf range, two convection ovens, and the latest in appliances. Art hangs in the entry/gallery and library. Five flat screen HD LCD televisions receive Direct TV channels throughout the house and in the casita. Antenna local TV is also available. A home theater with Blue Ray DVD enables a movie theater experience. Sixteen broadband internet connections are conveniently located throughout. Two courtyards are cooled by fountains of gurgling water. (THE OWNERS ACCEPT NO SHORT TERM RENTALS).

Spectacular serenity is the best description of both this adobe style house and of this special spot on planet earth. If you want to limit your access to serenity and natural beauty, Las Vegas is a two hour drive away.

About Mel Rogers

We completed construction on this home in late 2008. It is a custom home and was designed to our exact specifications. This property is now our primary residence but we also spend time in Orange County, California. Mel is retired CEO of PBS SoCaL, LA's PBS television station, and Marcia just retired as a college English professor. We have two adult children, and have chosen to limit guests to adults only. We love this home and the scenic area in which is is located. We hope you will treat them both with respect. --Mel and Marcia Rogers

Mel Rogers purchased this villa in 2008

Why Mel Rogers chose Utah

We built here because it is one of the most visually spectacular and peaceful places on earth. It is a great home base for visiting the National Parks, Grand Canyon, or the Tony Award Winning Utah Shakespearean Festival.


What makes this villa unique

Spectacular Serenity is uniquely possible among the red rock cliff of Kayenta, Utah. Utah's "Mighty Five" national parks are within driving distance as is the Grand Canyon. If you get tired of nature and serenity, Vegas is just two hours away.

Pre Christmas get away

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. We have stayed in dozens of VRBO listed properties over the years and found this one to be among the best. Very clean and well appointed, children had a blast indoors and out.

Highly recommend Kayenta for any one looking for a golfing, hiking, OHV escape.

Perfectly situated outside of St George

  • 5 of 5

This house lived up to the VRBO description & let's just put it out there: THE VIEWS!!! The location was wonderful: perfect for privacy & quite and yet easily positioned to explore the area from Snow Canyon to Bryce to Zion. The Rogers were wonderful to work with, giving us area information and suggestions. Nice touch being personally met with a tour of the property. The house is well maintained, spotlessly clean and wonderfully provisioned. This neighborhood is a jewel! Jack rabbits, foxes & quail abound. Thank you for sharing your home with us, your hospitality helped us fall in love with Utah.

Wild West Experience in Utah

  • 5 of 5

Spending a week at Casa de Bella Vista having a “wild west experience” was a relaxing vacation in a fabulous home with spectacular views of the red rock cliffs from every window. We, 3 couples from NJ, FL, & IL, use VRBO for our trips and we found Mel and Marcia to be helpful in our pre trip planning. Our stay at their casa was like being at a resort…the web page pictures and the virtual tour were truly accurate! Their Kayenta Community villa is conveniently located for traveling to Bryce, Zion, Snow Canyon, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Helpful hint: a GPS is a good idea for night driving...very dark, but great for star gazing!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for five days and the only problem we encountered was that the time was too short. I found all the descriptions in the listing, website, and other reviews to be accurate. The owner was easy to work with and helpful. I would highly recommend this properity.

Spectacular Red Rock Ranch

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in November 2010 at this wonderful home. This is the real deal. The pictures do not do it justice. This is a very high tech high end home lovingly decorated in a western motif. The location is very private with windows that look out on the red rocks in every direction. Very spacious and private lanai with sunny southern exposure is great in the cooler weather. The fire pit also is a plus on cool evenings. There is also a large pool. We were able to to get to Zion and Bryce parks and a host of other lesser known parks that are in the area. St George has every convenience for shopping and dining. Believe me this is a great deal for those who wish to visit the great natural wonders of southern Utah in comfort. The owners were great and made our arrival easy by having someone meet us at the home.

Serene and quiet, stunningly beautiful, close to golf, restaurants, art and so much more...

  • 5 of 5

When you drive into Kayenta you do not notice the homes. The red rock mountains take your breath away. It is not until you recover do you notice homes. They blend into the natural landscape as if they were meant to be there. The driveway to this wonderful getaway is the second signal that we made a good choice. The landscape is natural yet appears perfectly groomed. Can front doors be special? This front door is a work of art and tells me this home has been lovingly planned.

Once inside you remain in awe of those amazing mountains. They are framed as if a magnificent painting. But better than a painting- they are real and feel as if they are right next door! The master bedroom and cozy bungalow are as well outfitted as any high end hotel room. But this is so much nicer than a hotel because you also have a kitchen, dining room, living room, pool and barbeque! Everything is perfect at this home in Kayenta. My husband, who can’t leave home without his computer, was thrilled to have a desk and internet access. In fact there are two desks so I too had a place to work.

In the mornings we walked to Xetava, a cozy, upscale café where breakfasts were tasty and local artists hung their work. Even more fun was having dinner there and having a sing-along with a local musician who made the rounds with his guitar. The food and wine was exceptional.

We played golf, hiked trails, went to great restaurants in St. George and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Kayenta. We hope to return!
