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.

Good home base to hike Zion, antelope canyon and the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Quiet and close enough to restaurants and supermarket. Thank you

Beautiful home near Zion

  • 5 of 5

Another couple, my husband and I spent four nights here, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were within easy driving distance of Zion National Park and Snow Canyon State Park. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything one might need. The owner lives nearby and checked in with us upon arrival to offer helpful tips; she even lent us hiking poles! We highly recommend this lovely home.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the house. It was very clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. I liked that it was 30-45 min away from Zion - private, very quiet area and peaceful. Close proximity to grocery, golf and state parks. The owner was nice and accommodating - asking if we needed anything. I did feel a little apprehensive when the owner (who lives next door) questioned a piece of broken glass in the courtyard and the fact that she saw some recycling in the regular trash. I'm a very good tenant but felt a little uneasy knowing things were being checked up on every time I left the property. But other than that, it was perfect and I would definitely return! And highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Tricia, While I was over watering the flowers in the court yard I noticed the broken beer bottle. That was why I asked you about it. Thank you for the review. Sincerely, Kathryn

A second lovely stay at Acienda

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts had everything we needed in this beautiful home for yet another fantastic stay. Enough room for our entire family, all the extras that made it feel like our home for the week, and a location that made daily visits to Zion, Bryce and the surrounding National and State Parks a breeze. Absolutely loved it!

Beautiful Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home for our southern Utah get-away! The house is beautifully decorated with many charming, artistic accents. It is clear that Kathryn and Captain John truly care about this home and want their visitors to feel comfortable. There were many thoughtful touches (ie. night lights, bathrobes, coffee and creamer, etc.) which made our stay feel more like visiting a friend's home than renting a place. There was plenty of room for our family of 5. We were so happy to have laundry after some muddy hikes in Zion and Bryce. Plus, there's nothing like the view from the back deck, which we enjoyed while sipping our morning coffee and while grilling our dinner. This home made our trip to this beautiful area especially enjoyable!

Beautiful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our trip in Hurricane and rented this beautiful house with our teenager daughter. We all loved it. Lots to see and do in the area if you are an active family. The house is very well equipped, in the kitchen everything you need to cook, spices, tea, sugar, even zip locks to make sandwiches when going on hikes, bedrooms(house coats, plenty blankets if needed), outdoor(fire wood, games)... Everything you need to have a good time as a family.

The owners are amazing. They came every day to see if we needed anything, or share places we should visit... Captain John even drove us to see the dinosaure tracks near the house. We are already talking about going back.
