Secluded community south of Hurricane. Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place: roomy, comfy beds, cool master suite, easy access. Community tucked against base of mesa and lots nestled in amongst creosote bushes - so fragrant! Great as a launch point for either northern or southern entrances to Zion NP. Teenage sons report happiness with the wi-fi so that passed muster! A+

The property is spacious, comfortable, and beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

This rental was perfect for five of us. The lovely courtyard and back porch were beautiful and provided wonderful spaces to view the local wildlife. We saw road runners, rabbits, and other birds, including a family of partridges. The night sky was amazing. Captain Whitton was very gracious and welcoming. They made water bottles and ice chests available for use while visiting nearby sights for the day. The house was situated perfectly for our visits to the North rim of the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. We only wish we had more time to stay there!

Hiking Adventure

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had an enjoyable hiking adventure. The owners were very nice and responded promptly to any communications prior to our arrival. We do suggest that the owners evaluate their cleaning service. When we arrived, we needed to clean the floors, shake out the throw rugs and found a partially dried load of laundry in the dryer. All the best for the 2018 season.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the situation when you arrived. I was in Colorado for my grandson's graduation. I usually check the house after the cleaning girls leave. When I returned home we came over to meet you. I asked if everything was O.K. You indicated that everything was fine. Had I known what the situation was I woiuld have called the cleaning service and had them come back and clean the house. II will definately follow up with the cleaning service. Thank you, Kathryn Whitton

Perfect Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Seven family members made this property the ideal location for our vacation. Scenery surrounding this property is amazing, quiet neighborhood, easy access to St. George Airport, Zion National Park and Snow Canyon. Kitchen was so well equipped we never ate out, bedrooms comfortable, great sizes, never felt like we were living on top of each other. Met all of our needs and more. We would rent again with all that the area has to offer. Kathryn was wonderful and helpful. Thank you.

Outstanding Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the house, which was located outside of Hurricane in a serene environment. The owners of this property have anticipated and provided for every possible need of their guests. The house is clean, spacious, and charmingly decorated. The kitchen is large and well-equipped with cutlery, pots and pans, and every cooking gadget you could need. Unfortunately, during our stay, a medical emergency necessitated us leaving a couple of days early, but we cannot overstate how much we loved this rental. If you need a base for touring Zion and surrounding destinations, you could not find a lovelier place to stay.
