Photos and Description of this Hurricane holiday house

We have the best of two world's. We are located half way between St. George (less than 20 miles) and Zion National Park (a little more than 20 miles). Acienda is located near the quaint town of Hurricane. St. George has shopping, restaurants, antique stores, and live theatres. Zion has hiking, biking along with great art galleries. Our home is located in an exclusive subdivision with 30 other southwestern homes. Acienda is located on 1.6 acres. The custom adobe home has acid etched floors through out the house with log pole ceilings. It is detailed with southwestern artifacts. Acienda has four bedrooms. Two bedrooms have double beds and the master suite has a queen size bed. The fourth bedroom is a 'kids' room equipped with a futon that can sleep two and its own T.V. and VCR. The living room has a hide-a-bed couch that makes into a queen size bed. There is a full bathroom between the Jack and Jill bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own bathroom with two sinks, a walkout shower and a large master closet. There is an additional half bath located close to the living area. The kitchen is spacious and is next to the dining room that seats 8 people. There is a bar that seats 4 additional people. There is a patio that goes the full length of the house. The dining area, living room and master suite all have French doors to access the patio. The outdoor area has a picnic table, fire pit, barbeque, chairs and a chaise lounge to enjoy the beautiful views. There is a long porch in the front of the house that is adorned with an 8" church pew and a sunken garden. Enjoy your morning coffee or your evening wine on the private patios with beautiful mountain views and spectular starry nights.

The rates are $195.00 for 6 or less people. Additional $65.00 per adult and $25.00 per child for over 6. Pet fee of $100.00 for one dog and $50.00 for each additional dog.

Gorgeous views, clean and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are exactly true to what is there but don't really show how truly big the house is.

We were a couple and a single so we each had a separate wing of the house and all 3 had there own bedroom.

The outside sitting area was beautiful and relaxing. It was 35 minutes to Zion and easy access to I15 for day trips north and south.

Hurricane has all the amenities of a nice small town but you might want to buy your alcohol before entering Utah if you don't want to deal with the restricted hours of Liquor Stores.

Everything in the house worked perfectly and was very well stocked. Beds and bedrooms were great.

We highly recommend.

Beautiful! Unique home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Between the spacious rooms, the tastefully decorated interior with its artistic accents, and the kindness of the host, we just couldn't of asked for a better home away from home. Kathryn welcomed us in the house and made great suggestions for where to eat and what to see in the area. Super clean and cozy. Thank you for sharing this gem with us!

This is a very inviting, quiet, private, clean and spacious property. The owner was very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful with activities and places to see in the area. The house was tastefully furnished with a very pleasant and quiet veranda to enjoy the night skies. We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wanted a pleasant getaway. Zion is within driving distance along with day trips to Kanab and a very pleasant drive to Kolab Reservoir. A great time was had by all.

Very quiet, clean, and private. Beautifully decorated! Spacious rooms with wonderful view. The owner was very helpful with information on things to see and do. It was beautiful at night, sitting on the veranda-stars galore, quiet, peaceful. Best vacation!

A wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at Acienda and was very satisfied with the accommodations and cleanliness. The house's accommodations covered all of our needs. Kathyrn was very accommodating and quickly responsive to all communications from booking through checkout. The location is great for visiting Zion and the North Rim, which were both outstanding, even in the early summer heat. The property's view of the Hurricane cliffs and to points west are outstanding. Star gazing was amazing, and our children enjoyed the daily visits from the resident jack rabbits, lizards and quail. We hope to make a return visit and stay at Acienda in the not too distant future!

Very Comfortable, Lots of room, Everything you need is there

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice place and has everything you would need. The rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is great, the outside area is comfortable and plenty of chairs to relax. One other nice thing about this rental is that it had the basics that I think I so important when traveling. As a traveler, a lot of times you arrive at a location late, you are in a strange place and just want to get to where you are going. Then, to get there and find no paper towels, salt/pepper, coffee, etc. is very disappointing. this place had ALL that. I don't expect owners to supply me with everything I would need, but some of the basics, like this place had, is GREAT. I appreciate it very much. Also, the owners are super. Very nice and very helpful. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is the location. It depends on what you are looking for, but for us, we wanted it to be closer to Zion. It is a bit out of the way. Which, can be nice, but a little further drive to the places we wanted to go and so for us, that was the only downside. But a great place, I would highly recommend it.
