Overview

About the property

A peaceful home located away from city lights and city noise!

"Acienda" is in a "dry" county. It is best if you get your alcohol before you arrive. It is much cheaper in LasVegas.

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. We are 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.

It has four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The living room has a hide-a-bed couch that makes into a queen size bed. The fourth room has a trundle bed with two twin size beds.

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 6 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 front porch 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. The limit is 8 people with an additinal fee of $25 per night per person for the additional people. There is a non-refundable "Pet Fee" of $100.00 for one dog and $50.00 for each additional dog. No cats are allowed.

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.

Great location , beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as exactly as advertised. Home is far enough away from town to be

in the country but close enough to pick up groceries. felt very safe, secure and comfortable.

I would recommend this property to couples and families.

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+

Lovely ambience

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home in beautiful surroundings - well furnished, quiet, with everything we needed for a clean, comfortable stay and very accommodating and gracious hosts. We loved the decor, the patios, the house layout (grandparents could be in an opposite wing to the young family), the location outside of town, the view etc. Thank you Whittons!

Close to Zion

  • 3 of 5

The interior of this home is attractive and spacious. There are two interior kiva fireplaces but sadly you are not allowed to use them. The exterior yard could use some TLC. It is a peaceful setting with many nice views. Hurricane is a very small town with limited resources / attractions. The owner lives right next door.

Owner's Response: It is true that there are two kiva fireplaces that we do not allow the guest to burn wood in. However, in both those fireplaces there is an electric insert. There is a fire pit outside that is available. The reason for our decision to not allow guests to use the inside fireplaces was because we had our house burn to the ground. All this information is covered in our description of our property. Thank you, Kathryn Whitton
